FPL managers must still be reeling from the after-effects of an interesting Gameweek 21 that saw some assets record decent hauls while others blanked.
The Pep Roulette threw a wrench in many FPL managers' plans as popular assets like John Stones, Joao Cancelo, and Raheem Sterling were all benched. With an average total of 48 FPL points, Gameweek 21 was a decent one for some FPL managers but not so much for others.
I was left ruing my choices for the Gameweek after captaining Raheem Sterling and watching Patrick Bamford getting a 15-point FPL haul right after I sold him for Ollie Watkins. However, Mohamed Salah's return to form helped me to a decent Gameweek total of 60 FPL points, with the Egyptian delivering as my vice-captain.
With a couple of new injuries and other developments in the Premier League, FPL managers will be looking to tinker with their teams. However, they should do so ahead of the Gameweek 22 deadline on Tuesday evening.
Gameweek 22 Deadline: Tuesday, 2nd February at 4:30 PM (GMT) and 10:00 PM (Indian Standard Time)

Best FPL XI for Gameweek 22
Chips activated: None
Point Hits taken (if any): None
Captain/vice-captain: Raheem Sterling (or) Mohamed Salah (or) Bruno Fernandes/ Son Heung-Min
Mohamed Salah should get my captain's armband after his 15-point FPL haul against West Ham. Raheem Sterling offers a potent alternative.
