Welcome to blank gameweek!
In GW31 there are 12 teams that will not play. This happened because GW31 coincided with the FA Cup quarter-final matches involving Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Brighton & Hove Albion, Southampton, Leicester City and Chelsea.
That means, there will only be four games, aka eight teams who will play. Here's the analysis of the game schedule in GW31.
Bournemouth vs West Bromwich Albion
Both teams failed to win a victory in the last four games, but Bournemouth have a slightly better record as they grabbed two draws while West Brom missed a win. Bournemouth have a great chance of reaching a clean sheet because West Brom scored only two goals from four gameweek and they were recorded as teams at least shot (33) in which only eight were recorded on target.
Huddersfield Town vs Crystal Palace
Huddersfield are seeded to win against Crystal Palace because in the last four gameweek, they have a good record in which seven points they managed to achieve. Crystal Palace returns should be in the relegation zone after swallowing four consecutive defeats. Targeting clean sheet points in this match is not a good choice as both teams are quite productive with Huddersfield scoring six goals and Crystal Palace scoring five goals.
Liverpool vs Watford
Despite having to defeat at GW30 from Man United, Liverpool will be seeded back victory in this GW31. Not without reason, Liverpool have not even lost at Anfield in the Premier League. While Watford failed to win in their last seven away games. More worrying again, they did not score a goal in seven away games. Therefore, choosing the Liverpool players on GW31 is the best choice.
