The Scout’s panel of experts discuss their chip strategies for the final nine Gameweeks of 2020/21 Fantasy Premier League.

It's been my plan for a while now to play my final and most powerful chip, the second Wildcard, in Gameweek 31.

There's some important and interesting fixture swings for a number of players in my squad who I will want to sell as I refresh my options for the run-in.

Geoff Dance (@GeoffreyDance)

I played mine already to moderate success. I can now simplify my game for the last quarter of the season, while those with chips will have to guard against over-complicating their decision-making process.

Diogo Jota (£6.6m) is among my targets for the run-in as he has the schedule to provide great value.

I don't have any of my chips left, having used the Free Hit in Gameweek 29. I used my second Wildcard in Gameweek 26 to set up for the long run.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee)

I have the Bench Boost and Free Hit chips yet to play. I am probably looking at Gameweek 33 for my Free Hit as four sides, Fulham, Manchester City, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur, are without a fixture.

For Bench Boost I will probably try to set up my team for it and strike at the best opportunity.

Nick (@WGTA_Nick)

I've still got my Free Hit. I'll probably use this in a Double Gameweek to come.

Spurs are still due one and Harry Kane (£11.6m) may be the man who gets the armband.
