In the opening week of the Premier League season I decided to put out my gameweek 1 FPL tips 2018-19 the day before the first match of the season. Not great timing on my part, but I wasn’t even sure that I would be doing anything for this season after taking a break since week 30 of last season. I’m hoping to continue with my tips as this year progresses despite having to make up some time and play catch up to start.
I haven’t completely finalized my plan for my team, but for now I’m thinking that I will be going with a risk averse setup. Primarily I think I will focus on looking for the best value across the board. This is probably going to mean going with David De Gea in goal (very safe pick considering that he won’t sit unless injured) then going with a mix of 4.5-5.5 DEF. Midfield will certainly revolve around Salah and I want to make it so that I can plug and play with midfielders around the 6.5-7M range. Similarly sticking with 6.5-7M FWD and one premium. Most likely I’ll start with Firmino, but look to jump on either Lukaku or Aubameyang quickly.
