FPL Tips – 3 Must-have Players For The Upcoming Premier League Gameweek

It’s gameweek 16 in the Premier League and it is set to offer a lot of entertainment for fans, with two massive derby games in the offing. While Everton take on Liverpool at Anfield, Manchester City face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Fantasy Premier League this season would have been a topsy-turvy ride so far for many, considering how the players have performed. If you are really wondering who you need to have in your FPL team, here’s a look at three must-have players for gameweek 16.

Philippe Coutinho

With 4 goals and 5 assists in 8 appearances in the Premier League, Liverpool’s little magician has set the ball rolling for possibly his best ever season in a Liverpool shirt. The Brazilian midfielder was in full form in the Champions League after bagging his first ever Liverpool hat-trick against Russian side Spartak Moscow.

Not only did the 25-year-old help Liverpool make it to the last 16 of the Champions League but also captained the side in the absence of Jordan Henderson. Coutinho will certainly look to continue his form from midweek and take into the much awaited Merseyside derby at Anfield at the weekend. FPL managers can expect plenty of fireworks from the Brazilian and he is a must-have for this weekend.

Charlie Austin

If you’re thinking that that English striker hasn’t been impressive this season, then you’re certainly wrong. Although he only has 4 goals in 12 appearances, he has only played just over 300 minutes in the League this season.

Austin averages a goal every 79 minutes in the League this season and has been picking up form in the last couple of weeks. He got a brace against Everton last month and was also on the scoresheet in the game against Bournemouth last week. Even in his 7-minute cameo against Manchester City, Austin looked very threatening against the League leaders.

With a price tag of just £6.0m, FPL managers will not find a better in-form striker than Austin at this price.

Raheem Sterling

The England international and Manchester City winger has been absolutely sensational for Pep Guardiola’s side this season. He has been one of the best performers in the Premier League this season.

Sterling has made some really big contributions to the City side in recent games, having scored late winners on more than a couple occasions already. The English winger has definitely racked in a lot of points in the FPL and is a must-have for this gameweek.

The Manchester Derby is going to be a massive clash and we can always expect another late winner from Raheem Sterling.
