The most important thing to note during this gameweek is the players who will be absent due to international duty in Africa. A few big-hitters include Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy, Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane and Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez. With all of their international teams likely to make it deep into the competition, we suggest you to bench, if not transfer them out as soon as possible and get in the replacements we will be discussing ahead.

FPL Gameweek 22 Tips and Tricks: Transfers

It is pretty obvious looking at all teams having double gameweeks to suggest getting their big-money players in as soon as possible as a replacement for AFCON absentees, atleast for this week. Also, Spurs do not face potential top-4 rivals until January end and are in great form, so now might be the time to invest in their squad, specifically Harry Kane who looks to be kicking on.

It is important to note that AFCON players will not be back anytime soon, so use your transfers wisely to get them out as fast as possible. Everton and Leicester have given us food for thought, for their best run of fixtures coincides with bad form at the moment, and hence we suggest you to wait a few weeks. Manchester United have comfortable fixtures too but they have been pretty unpredictable in recent weeks, so pick them at your own risk.

FPL Gameweek 22 Tips and Tricks: Chips

Gameweek 22 can be called a partial double gameweek and as such, it might be a safe bet in playing your Free Hit chip to rotate the pack just this time around. Even a Wildcard could work for the long term if you have many AFCON players and are sure about your replacements in that regard.
