Free hit is one of the three ‘chips’ that you have been awarded this season in the Fantasy Premier League.
Like the other two chips, ‘Triple Captain’ and ‘Bench Boost’, free hit can be used only once throughout the season but has the potential to increase a manager’s points total significantly if used wisely.
It replaces the formerly unreliable ‘All Out Attack’, which allowed managers to play an ultra-attacking 2-5-3 formation.
All-out-attack proved quite ineffective, providing no guarantee of boosting one’s total tally in a game week in any significant way.
Free hit allows one to make unlimited transfers in a single game week and game week 11 looks to be an appropriate time to activate it because most big boys are playing against each other and getting sufficiently enough points from them will be hard.
Some managers can opt to use the new chip to have an advantage over their competitors this week while others may choose to save theirs for double game weeks.
TOTTENHAM vs PALACE.
Spurs are playing Hodgson’s boys, Crystal palace is currently the poorest team this season, managing a single win and a draw after playing 10 matches.
Getting an attack minded player or two from Spurs and a defender or a goalkeeper will do you a world of good.
Potential assets from the fixture are Dele Ali 9.3, Eriksen 9.7 and serge Aurier 5.9
SWANSEA vs BRIGHTON.
Swansea will host the premier league newcomers in wales. This might be an easy fixture for Swansea to keep a clean sheet. Poacher Tammy Abraham 5.8 and Kyle Naughton 4.5 or Alfie Mawson 5.0 and probably Lukasz Fabianski 4.6 might make your free hit pay off.
Pascal Gross 5.8 is also looking too hot to ignore, with 2 goals and 5 assists in 10 games.
WEST HAM vs LIVERPOOL.
West Ham have conceded 19 goals in 10 games just two goals shy of the crystal palace’s league topping 21 goals conceded, averaging two goals conceded in every game. I recommend you get Salah 9.2 and Firmino 8.5 might make the free hit a heavy hitting chip.
EVERTON vs WATFORD.
The Merseysiders have had a disastrous start to the premier league campaign, leading up to the sacking of their coach Koeman. They will be looking to bounce back this Sunday as they host highflying Watford at Goodison Park. Therefore, getting a couple of players from the two teams isn’t a bad idea for the chip. Best asset from Watford is Richarlison and from Everton Wayne Rooney 7.3.
I suggest the following for the free hit:
Goal keepers: Hugo Lloris and Lukasz Fabianski.
Defenders: Alfie Mawson, Kyle Naughton, Serge Aurier, Vertonghen and Kiko fermenia.
Midfielders: Ali, Eriksen, Richarlison, Mahrez, Ritchie, Pascal Gross.
Forward: Rooney, Firmino, Vardy and Harry Kane.
