The starting 11s for all 20 Premier League clubs in the following gameweek are covered, so you can be sure that you’re not missing out on those valuable FPL points. Here are our gameweek 33 predicted line-ups…
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to miss the home meeting with Southampton after being forced off with a knee problem in Thursday night’s 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow. He was replaced by Alex Iwobi, and it’s the Nigerian who could join Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck in the attacking midfield spots in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Ozil played the full 90 minutes in midweek, though, with Welbeck restricted to 16 minutes as a substitute. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will return having been ineligible to play in Europe, but Arsene Wenger may consider starting both he and Alexandre Lacazette. Against Stoke City, Aubameyang moved out onto the left wing, leaving Lacazette as the lone striker. Mohamed Elneny only played 16 minutes against CSKA, and is likely to provide fresh legs at the base of midfield. Granit Xhaka only played 14 minutes last Sunday before playing the full match on Thursday night, so he could partner the Egyptian. Aaron Ramsey has played all 180 minutes this week, and looks primed for a rest, while Jack Wilshere is another who may sit out the Saints clash ahead of the second leg in Russia next Thursday. In defence, Calum Chambers is expected to come in for Laurent Koscielny, who is being preserved for the UEFA Europa League campaign. Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles provide alternatives in the full-back positions should Wenger look to introduce some fresh legs in those areas. Petr Cech returned on Thursday, and with David Ospina (ankle) out for two to three weeks, he will start in goal. Santi Cazorla is the only long-term absentee.
Bellerin – Chambers – Mustafi – Monreal
Xhaka – El Neny
Ozil – Iwobi – Welbeck
