FPL Gameweek 3 Tips: 2022-23 PL Season

With two gameweeks gone in the current Premier League (PL) season, champions Manchester City are have already started their hunt for the yet another title. 

While the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool who are yet to find their first win this season, the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are already left frustrated for picking the likes of Darwin Nunez and David de Gea.

Both Darwin Nunez and Cristian Romero were some of the top picks for the first two gameweeks. 

While Nunez announced himself on the English football stage with a debut goal in the Community Shield, Romero has been a no-nonsense defender for his team. 

A red card for Nunez against Crystal Palace has ruled him out while a muscle strain will see Romero sit on the sidelines. 

FPL Gameweek 3 Defenders Tips

If the FPL managers are looking for like-to-like replacement, there is no better alternative in defense than Ben Mee

Having transferred from Burnley, he has quickly made his mark and will be on everyone’s radar and is only available for £4.5 m. 

The FPL managers will be poised to add Mee to their ranks as he also faces a weaker opposition in the form of Fulham. He will be a perfect fit and replacement for Christian Romero.

FPL Gameweek 3 Transfer Tips

With a budget left of £9.5 m, there will be no better option but to draft in Dejan Kulusevski having mustard 13 points against Southampton in the opening gameweek. 

Kulusevski comes at a budget of £8.1 m, which leaves a hefty fee in the tank and will be a future boost for the FPL managers.

Manchester City players could ring in the points for you in the next few gameweeks!

In the upcoming match weeks we recommend fans to go with as many players as from Manchester City. At the current moment City have one of the easiest run as they face Newcastle United on the coming weekend.

This will be followed two consecutive home fixtures against Crystal Palace and then followed by the promoted Nottingham Forrest. 

With this kind of run we expect plenty of goals and assist. So FPL managers should creep in with transfers that will likely serve for next few weeks.

FPL Gameweek 3: Captain Tips

There should be no better option for the FPL managers to put Erling Haaland as the captaincy option. Not only does he face Newcastle in the next match, but he has already showed his class with a brace in his last away game and then an assist on home debut. 

With Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forrest to come in the coming gameweek, the stocks will certainly rise for the former Borussia Dortmund man.
