Fantasy Premier League tips: 5 players to sign in Gameweek 20
It's not only Christmas weight that needs to be shed at this time of the year.
Come the Christmas period, Fantasy Premier League managers often use their last opportunity to redeem their first wildcard and revamp teams bloated with point-fearing players.
Consider recruiting one of the following players if you are undergoing a last-minute clean-out of your FPL squad.
Abdoulaye Doucoure, Watford
They fell short against Chelsea on Boxing Day, but in Gameweek 19 Watford showed signs of promise and at the heart of it all was the inexhaustible Abdoulaye Doucoure.
The Frenchman has been linked with a €50m move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain due to his powerhouse performances, which have played a crucial part in the Hornets' season so far.
In the last five gameweeks Doucoure has scored 26 points and against Newcastle, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Burnley he could well add to his bumper collection.
Cost: £5.9m Points: 71
Kyle Walker-Peters, Tottenham
Three assists and a clean sheet saw Kyle Walker-Peters earn a mammoth total of 18 points in Gameweek 19.
Including him in your FPL side after just his first start in the league for Tottenham might seem like a knee-jerk reaction, but at £4.2m it's hard to ignore him following his efforts against Bournemouth.
Consider recruiting him as a third or fourth-choice defender.
Cost: £4.2m Points: 19
James Maddison, Leicester
Just one gameweek after Crystal Palace provided the shock of the season with a 3-2 victory over Manchester City, Leicester again proved that Pep Guardiola's reigning champions are mortal.
Claude Puel's men have dismantled two of the league's biggest sides in two gameweeks and are now set to embark on a winnable run of fixtures, facing Cardiff, Everton, Southampton and Wolves.
FPL managers should weigh up investing in impressive Foxes midfielder James Maddison, who has picked up 76 points so far this season.
Cost: £6.8m Points: 76
Gylfi Sigurdsson, Everton
Everton bounced back from a humbling defeat at the hands of Tottenham with an emphatic victory of their own against Sean Dyche's Burnley.
Gylfi Sigurdsson was yet again outstanding for the Toffees, picking up his fourth double-digit points total courtesy of a goal and an assist.
With the attacker in undroppable form, FPL managers should pick him up for fixtures against Brighton, Leicester, Bournemouth, Southampton and Huddersfield.
Cost: £7.3m Points: 96
Eden Hazard, Chelsea
Yet again, Eden Hazard put forward the case that he is the best player in the league with a barnstorming performance against a strong Watford side on Boxing Day.
Hazard scored his ninth and tenth goals of the season against the Hornets, boosting his FPL points total to 133. That's just four points behind overall leader Mo Salah.
Up next for Hazard and Chelsea are fixtures against bottom-half dwellers Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Southampton. Don't be surprised if Hazard adds to a goal or two his total tally in the next three gameweeks.
Cost: £11m Points: 133
