FPL managers will need to be on their toes as another Gameweek beckons less than 24 hours after the conclusion of Gameweek 32.

Double Gameweek 32 saw a lot of exciting action as well as big updates that could have a major impact on the rest of the season.

Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager. Meanwhile, Harry Kane picked up an injury after securing a 12-point FPL haul in the first of the two fixtures. The European Super League controversy, which appears to be resolved for now, could also have a huge impact on the season.

Nevertheless, with the EFL Cup final this week, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Southampton,and Fulham will not feature in Gameweek 33. FPL managers will have to make their transfers accordingly, especially when they consider that lots of managers would've had Spurs' FPL assets for Gameweek 32.

Whatever changes they opt to make, they should do so before the Friday evening deadline UK time.

Gameweek 33 Deadline: Friday, 23rd April; 06:30 PM (BST) and 11:00 PM (Indian Standard Time).

Transfers

#1 Adama Traore in for Son Heung-Min

Adama Traore looks to be back in form, playing in a more central role.
Adama Traore looks to be back in form, playing in a more central role.

Adama Traore has shown decent FPL form over the last few games and looks like a good budget FPL midfielder for the run-in. I will miss Son ahead of Spurs' enticing run of fixtures after Gameweek 33, but Kane should provide me with enough cover.

Since the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota offered so much value over the last few Gameweeks of the season, it makes sense to free up some funds from the midfield and direct it to defence.

Traore looks like a good short-term punt from a Wolves team that's on the rise. I'm expecting some decent FPL hauls from him.


#2 Trent Alexander-Arnold in for Craig Dawson

Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Craig Dawson has had a horrid time since I signed him in Gameweek 29, aggregating -3 FPL points, with his red card in Gameweek 32, meaning he had to go out.

An in-form Trent Alexander-Arnold was always on my mind, and his performance against Leeds United sealed the deal.

He has produced 40 FPL points in his last four outings, featuring in two clean sheets and scoring a goal and producing two assists. He has registered some tremendous attacking numbers and looks set to haul big at the business end of the season.


Best FPL XI for Gameweek 33:

Chips activated: None.

Point Hits taken (if any): -4.

Captain/vice-captain: Mohamed Salah (or) Bruno Fernandes (or) Kelechi Iheanacho/ Jesse Lingard.

Goalkeeper:

Robert Sanchez has done well for the Seagulls this season.
Robert Sanchez has done well for the Seagulls this season.

Robert Sanchez (BHA) (£4.4 million) | Opponent: SHU (A): Brighton & Hove Albion have done really well defensively and have been unlucky not to have got more clean sheets. They should keep a shutout against a downbeat Sheffield United side, so Sanchez should could fetch a solid FPL haul.


Defenders:

Trent Alexander-Arnold can deliver some huge FPL hauls at the business end of the season.
Trent Alexander-Arnold can deliver some huge FPL hauls at the business end of the season.

Luke Shaw (MUN) - £5.1 million | Opponent: LEE (A): Luke Shaw is the number one ranked FPL defender in the Creativity index and could get points both on a defensive and attacking front against Leeds.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) - £7.5 million | Opponent: NEW (H): Trent Alexander-Arnold has been in phenomenal form over the last couple of FPL Gameweeks. He'll look to continue that against Newcastle.

Romain Saiss (WOL) - £4.9 million | Opponent: BUR (H): Romain Saiss secured a clean sheet and two bonus points in FPL Gameweek 32 and could've had more. He'll look to help his team keep another clean sheet against Burnley.


Midfielders

Mohamed Salah is a solid FPL captaincy pick for this Gameweek.
Mohamed Salah is a solid FPL captaincy pick for this Gameweek.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) - £12.5 million | Opponent: NEW (H): Mohamed Salah should be fresh and fully fit after being benched against Leeds United. He's sure to start in this game and should rack up the FPL points against Newcastle.

Adama Traore (WOL) - £6 million | Opponent: BUR (H): Adama Traore looks a very threatening presence for Wolves, playing in a more central, attacking role. He looks like a decent FPL differential over the last few Gameweeks of the season.

Jesse Lingard (WHU) (MID) - £6.2 million | Opponent: CHE (H): Jesse Lingard has five goals and two FPL assists in his last four outings, and he looks primed for more. Expect him to breach Chelsea's defence this Gameweek.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) - £11 million | Opponent: LEE (A): Bruno Fernandes hasn't been getting the FPL returns in the last few Gameweeks, and I will be moving him on if he doesn't deliver in this juicy fixture.

Jarrod Bowen (WHU) (MID) - £5.9 million | Opponent: CHE (H): My faith in West Ham's attack has led me to bench Cesar Azpilicueta and play Bowen alongside Jesse Lingard. Bowen should have had a bigger FPL haul against Newcastle and will look to impose his authority from a central role against Chelsea.


Forwards:

Kelechi Iheanacho has emerged as a great FPL budget forward.
Kelechi Iheanacho has emerged as a great FPL budget forward.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) - £5.9 million | Opponent: CRY (H): Kelechi Iheanacho offers tremendous FPL value at his price. Expect him to continue his goal-scoring form against Crystal Palace.

Ollie Watkins (AVL) (FWD) - £6.3 million | Opponent: WBA (H): Aston Villa will look to register a win against West Bromwich Albion amidst a very tough schedule. Watkins has looked really threatening in the last couple of Gameweeks, and he should deliver on those underlying stats in this game.


Bench:

GK: Emiliano Martinez (AVL) (£5.4 million) | Opponent: WBA (H).

1st Sub: Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) - £5.8 million | Opponent: WHU (A).

2nd Sub: Pascal Struijk (LEE) - £4 million | Opponent: MUN (H).

3rd Sub: Harry Kane (TOT) - £11.4 million | Opponent: None.
