Gameweek 30 of Fantasy Premier League: Tips, Captain, Transfer Targets, and Team

Let's dive right into the FPL GW30 Tips, where we cover best picks, fixtures to target, transfer targets, captains, differentials, odds & team selection.

1. Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 30 Tips

  • After the announcement of fixtures for double gameweek 34, it's important to plan ahead when making transfers with blank Gameweek 32 in mind.

  • When considering who to transfer in for Gameweek 30, it's important to take into account the potential availability of Erling Haaland.

  • If you plan to deploy the Free Hit chip in Gameweek 32, Haaland is your primary target; however, if you don't plan on using the chip and use free transfer during that period, you should focus more on players who will have fixtures in Gameweek 32. Whether or not you trigger the Free Hit chip in GW32 should also be taken into account when planning your transfers for double Gameweek 34.

2. For those interested in top players for Gameweek 30, here are some key recommendations:

  • Haaland (if fit)

  • Trippier, Kane (backup captain if needed),

  • Arsenal attacking players (Liverpool's defense is struggling)

  • Watkin/Toney (good form and solid fixtures)

  • Manchester City defenders (Dias/Ederson/Aké--ideal if you wish to free hit in GW32)

  • Rashford.

For managers who are looking to acquire new players, several options have emerged as potential transfer targets. Erling Haaland ( GW32 Free Hit), Ruben Dias (GW32 Free Hit), Kevin De Bruyne (GW32 Free Hit) and Gabriel Jesus are all great choices. Additionally, Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings has excellent fixtures for the next four game weeks and is worth taking into consideration.

3. Key fixtures to keep an eye on in Gameweek 30.

When trying to determine which fixtures may yield a high number of fantasy points ,it is likely that:

  • Southampton vs. Manchester City: Citizens 77 % to win, 44 % to score 2.5+ goals

  • Manchester United vs Everton: Red Devils 66 % to win, 33 % to score 2.5+ goals

  • Aston Villa vs Nottingham: Aston Villa 58 % to win, 26 % to score 2.5+ goals

  • Leicester vs Bournemouth: Foxes 55 % to win, 26 % to score 2.5+ goals

4. Differential for GW30

Konsa (Aston Villa, 4.4m) is a differential pick in Fantasy Premier League circles with ownership limited to just 0.5 % of managers. Boasting an attractive next four gameweeks for Aston Villa, Konsa has yet to deliver an attacking return during this season – although across the last three seasons he registered at least two returns in that area.

4. Captain for GW30

  • Gameweek 30's captaincy choices could be a difficult one. Haaland is the obvious choice, provided he is fit, while Rashford and Kane will likely be popular captain picks if he misses the game.

  • If you are looking for an alternative differential choice, then Watkins could be the name to consider given that Aston Villa have a good fixture against Nottingham Forrest and he has been in impressive form recently.
