Fantasy Premier League Tips And Transfers For Gameweek 2

After a thrilling start to the 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League season, attention now turns to the second gameweek.

After a high-scoring Gameweek 1, managers will be keen to enhance their chances of FPL glory heading into this weekend’s games.

Last Saturday, we saw some mesmerising performances from Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes after they single-handedly punished the Leeds United defence during a thumping 5-1 victory.

Meanwhile, Watford’s bargain striker Emmanuel Dennis made his mark in the Premier League, though there were lots of other performances that drew the eyes of FPL managers.


So, with Gameweek 2 upon us, it’s time for managers to use their first free transfer of the season and make that difficult decision of who to bring in next.

Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City)

While hugging the touchline, he was able to bomb forward down the right with ease, while also maintaining his defensive duties.

He was rewarded with an assist for the decisive goal scored by Jamie Vardy and, considering the upcoming schedule for the Foxes, looks like a must-have in any FPL team.

Price: £5.5m

Ismaila Sarr (Watford)

Ismaila Sarr’s electric pace caused Aston Villa some serious problems last weekend, ticking lots of boxes for managers looking for that extra something.

The 23-year-old is the talisman in Watford's side and his budget price will give managers the luxury to spend elsewhere, too.

Price: £6.0m


Luke Shaw (Manchester United)

Luke Shaw owners were rather unlucky not to see returns from him during Gameweek 1.

During United’s win over Leeds, Shaw had the most recoveries and blocks across the whole Red Devils team.

Meanwhile, in attack, he registered one big chance and two penalty-area touches - more than any of his defensive teammates.

Price: £5.5m

Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford)

Brentford's Bryan Mbeumo's lively showing against Arsenal, especially after playing slightly ahead of popular forward Ivan Toney, revealed exactly why he could be a bargain midfielder this season.

The Bees now face a Crystal Palace side who are still trying to find their feet under Patrick Vieira and could capitalise on just that following their triumph over the Gunners.

Price: £5.5m

Said Benrahma (West Ham United)

Those who selected West Ham United's Said Benrahma before the start of the season, would have been rewarded with a goal and assist on the opening weekend - and we’re backing that fine form to continue. 

Leicester are up next and, at times, did not look entirely convincing during their narrow win over Wolves, so expect Benrahma to take full advantage of just that.

Price: £6.1m
