DGW29 FPL stats: Mitoma puts pressure on Man Utd stars

2 Apr 2023
Premier League - AFC Bournemouth v Brighton & Hove Albion

Managers who transferred in Brighton star have big advantage over those who opted instead for Fernandes and Shaw

The third-most transferred in player for Double Gameweek 29, Kaoru Mitoma (£5.6m), has put huge pressure on two Manchester United stars heading into Wednesday's matches.

Mitoma was brought in by 524,000+ FPL managers for this Gameweek, richly rewarding them with a huge 14 points from his matches against Brentford and AFC Bournemouth.

The Japanese added to his goal against the Bees with an assist at AFC Bournemouth, becoming the first Brighton player to get a goal involvement in five straight PL matches.

Bruno Fernandes (£9.6m) and Luke Shaw (£5.2m) were the only players in greater demand, but they both had Gameweeks to forget.

Following their 2-0 loss at Newcastle managers were hoping for a stronger output against Brentford. However neither were able to deliver a strong numbers as Fernandes failed to produce an attacking return, while Shaw was substituted off in the first-half with a suspected injury, and had picked up a yellow card.

The three most-sold players were all ruled out through injury.

Miguel Almiron (£5.4m) isn't expected to feature again until Gameweek 34 after suffering a thigh injury. 

Meanwhile, William Saliba (£5.2m) missed Arsenal's 4-1 win over Leeds United with a back complaint.

More than 500,000 made the decision to part company with Erling Haaland (£12.0m), who sat out Man City's victory due to a groin injury.
