This weekend, the potentially title-defining clash between Manchester City and Liverpool takes center stage in the English Premier League. Still, many FPL managers will be looking to avoid that game.

From Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold to Kevin De Bruyne and Joao Cancelo, Sunday’s showdown will feature some of the best FPL players of all time. But they could cancel each other out.

My FPL rankings are stacked with Man City and Liverpool assets under normal circumstances. However, my tips for FPL Gameweek 32 reflect the upcoming fixtures, current form, and various other factors.

Let’s get the ball rolling by checking out the Gameweek 32 fixtures. I will then take you through the best FPL players and differentials for GW32 before wrapping things up with my FPL player rankings.

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 32 Fixtures

For the first time in a long time, we have a regular Gameweek on the way. Following countless Blank and Double Gameweeks, GW32 comprises ten clashes. That means each team plays once this week.

You can find the Gameweek 32 FPL fixtures below.

  • Newcastle United vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • Everton vs. Manchester United
  • Watford vs. Leeds United
  • Southampton vs. Chelsea
  • Arsenal vs. Brighton & Hove Albion
  • Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur
  • Leicester City vs. Crystal Palace
  • Norwich City vs. Burnley
  • Brentford vs. West Ham United
  • Manchester City vs. Liverpool

In addition to Man City and Liverpool’s top-two clash, there are some vital matchups at the opposite end of the Premier League table this weekend. Watford and Leeds meet on Saturday before Norwich and Burnley face off Sunday.

Manchester United has a favorable fixture against relegation-threatened Everton, while fellow top-four chasers such as Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham will be expected to win their respective games.

Newcastle and Wolves get the Gameweek 32 action underway this Friday, April 8, so don’t miss the early deadline! The GW32 deadline is 18:30 (BST) – 1.5 hours before Friday Night Football kicks off.

Best Players for FPL Gameweek 32 – Top 5 Picks

Here are my top five FPL players for Gameweek 32. If you want to maximize your chances of dominating GW32, you should look to find a way to get these must-have picks into your team.

Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur (£10.9m)

Son Heung-min grabbed a goal and an assist as Tottenham crushed Newcastle 5-1 last weekend. Since the start of December, the super-efficient South Korean has racked up ten goals and six assists in 16 Premier League outings. Pretty impressive, huh?

Spurs face an inconsistent Aston Villa outfit on Saturday. Not only have Steven Gerrard’s men lost each of their last three EPL games, but they have also lost five of their previous eight.

When you couple Villa’s recent record with Son’s current form, the Tottenham star is undoubtedly one of the best FPL players for Gameweek 32.

Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur (£12.5m)

Believe it or not, Harry Kane failed to get on the scoresheet in Tottenham’s thrashing of Newcastle. Still, the versatile striker pulled the strings from a deeper role and registered his sixth Premier League assist on the season.

Kane has notched three assists in the past two Gameweeks. On top of that, he has scored seven goals across his previous eight EPL appearances. With limited forward options in FPL at the moment, Kane is arguably the top pick in the forward department.

Reece James, Chelsea (£6.2m)

Between GW21 and GW29, Reece James missed seven games due to injury. But the marauding wing-back returned to action last weekend, albeit in Chelsea’s shock 4-1 loss to Brentford.

Regardless of Chelsea’s defeat in GW31, James is one best players for FPL Gameweek 32. The Blues have the ideal chance to make amends for last weekend’s loss, as they face a Southampton side that has taken a solitary point from the past four games.

This season, James has chalked up five goals and six assists this season in 18 EPL outings. Let’s not forget that he is classed as a defender!

Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United (£11.6m)

Having secured Portugal’s place at the 2022 FIFA World Cup by scoring both goals in last week’s 2-0 victory over North Macedonia, Bruno Fernandes appears to be back to his best.

The playmaker has chalked up nine goals and six assists this term in the Premier League. With four goals and three assists coming in his past EPL ten appearances, he will be confident of adding to his tally when Man Utd visits lowly Everton on Saturday.

Aaron Ramsdale, Arsenal (£5.1m)

Only three goalkeepers – Alisson, Jose Sa, and Ederson – have accumulated more FPL points than Aaron Ramsdale this season. The Arsenal shot-stopper has conceded 25 goals in as many Premier League games, keeping 12 clean sheets along the way.

Ramsdale will fancy his chances of achieving another shutout when struggling Brighton visits the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. The Seagulls are the third-lowest scorers in the league and have failed to score six of their last seven outings.

MOST FPL POINTS FOR GOALKEEPERS (2021-22)
Goalkeeper Team FPL Points
Alisson Liverpool 144
Jose Sa Wolverhampton Wanderers 134
Ederson Manchester City 129
Aaron Ramsdale Arsenal 118
Hugo Lloris Tottenham Hotspur 116

Best FPL Differentials for Gameweek 32

My recommended FPL differentials usually own 5% or under, but I’m mixing things up this week. Indeed, my GW32 FPL differentials are owned by less than 2% of managers.

Joachim Andersen, Crystal Palace (£4.5m)

It’s fair to say that Joachim Andersen was the surprise package of GW31. After recording two assists and a clean sheet in Crystal Palace’s 3-0 win against Arsenal, the center-back grabbed three bonus points to finish on 15!

Remarkably, Andersen is owned by just 0.5% of FPL managers. That makes him one of the best differentials for Gameweek 32.

The Eagles are enjoying a seven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions. Better still, they head into Sunday’s clash against an indifferent Leicester team on the back of four straight clean sheets.

Jonny Otto, Wolverhampton Wanderers (£4.5m)

It is no surprise that Jonny Otto has ownership of 0.3%. After all, the wing-back made his first Premier League appearance of the season in February after missing the majority of the campaign through injury.

However, Jonny has started the last four EPL games and comes into GW32 on a two-game scoring streak. Having found the back of the net against Leeds and Aston Villa, he could prove to be a shrewd acquisition for the run-in.

Fred, Manchester United (£4.9m)

We all know that Fred is not the most glamorous FPL option. Even so, his recent performances in a lackluster Man Utd team make him one of the top Gameweek 32 FPL differentials.

Owned by only 1.1% of FPL managers, the Brazilian midfielder picked up a goal and an assist across the past two games. You may be surprised to learn that Fred has registered four goals and five assists in the Premier League this term.

With the Red Devils facing Everton this weekend, Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo will be the popular Man Utd picks. But Fred has the potential to outscore any of his teammates.

Ben Davies, Tottenham Hotspur (£4.4m)

Ben Davies scored the equalizer in Tottenham’s demolition of Newcastle. Although he is best known for his defensive qualities, the makeshift center-back has consistently found himself in advanced areas since Antonio Conte arrived at the club.

Given that Davies has started all but one of the previous 21 EPL encounters, his 1.8% ownership puts him among the best FPL differentials in the game. He looks set to enjoy even more success against off-form Aston Villa.

Vitaly Janelt, Brentford (£4.9m)

Boasting a measly ownership of 0.1%, Vitaly Janelt surprised many people when he bagged a brace in Brentford’s thrashing of Chelsea. Could he cause West Ham problems in GW32?

The German midfielder has featured in 12 of the past 13 Premier League games. Since the Bees have won three of their previous four, Janelt is undoubtedly one of the top differentials for FPL Gameweek 32.

FPL Player Rankings for Gameweek 32

It’s time to go over my FPL rankings for Gameweek 32. Below, I look at the top five goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and forwards for GW32.

Best FPL Goalkeepers (GW32)

Aaron Ramsdale
  • Aaron Ramsdale, Arsenal (£5.1m)
  • Martin Dubravka, Newcastle United (£4.4m)
  • Nick Pope, Burnley (£5.4m)
  • David Raya, Brentford (£4.3m)
  • Edouard Mendy, Chelsea (£6.1m)

Given Brighton’s current form and recent scoring record, Ramsdale tops my GW32 FPL rankings for goalkeepers. Although the Gunners fell to Crystal Palace last time out, I expect them to bounce back against the struggling Seagulls.

Martin Dubravka, Nick Pope, and David Raya have favorable fixtures on the horizon. If you’re looking for a premium goalkeeper for Gameweek 32, I recommend choosing Chelsea’s, Edouard Mendy. It makes sense to steer clear of Alisson and Ederson this week.

Best FPL Defenders (GW32)

Reece James
  • Reece James, Chelsea (£6.2m)
  • Gabriel, Arsenal (£5.3m)
  • Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea (£6.1m)
  • Joao Cancelo, Manchester City (£7.0m)
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool (£8.4m)

I have already explained why James is one of the top FPL players for Gameweek 32. Having registered a goal-of-the-season contender last weekend, Antonio Rudiger is also among the best defenders for FPL GW32.

Gabriel is arguably the most reliable Arsenal defender, with Kieran Tierney sidelined through injury. Despite Man City and Liverpool going head-to-head on Sunday, I couldn’t leave out Joao Cancelo and Trent Alexander-Arnold here.

Best FPL Midfielders (GW32)

Son Heung-min
  • Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur (£10.9m)
  • Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United (£11.6m)
  • Dejan Kulusevski, Tottenham Hotspur (£6.3m)
  • Raphinha, Leeds United (£6.5m)
  • Mason Mount, Chelsea (£7.5m)

Alongside Son and Fernandes, I have chosen Dejan Kulusevski, Raphinha, and Mason Mount to complete my midfielder FPL rankings for Gameweek 32.

Kulusevski has bagged two goals and five assists in ten EPL appearances since joining Spurs in January, while Raphinha is the highest-scoring Leeds player by some distance. As for Mount, he is level with Rudiger regarding FPL points for Chelsea players.

Best FPL Forwards (GW32)

Harry Kane
  • Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur (£12.5m)
  • Ivan Toney, Brentford (£6.7m)
  • Emmanuel Dennis, Watford (£5.9m)
  • Joushua King, Watford (£5.7m)
  • Wout Weghorst, Burnley (£6.4m)

There is no denying that Kane is the best FPL forward at the moment. Although he made a slow start to the season, he is now the high-scoring forward in the game by a considerable margin.

Ivan Toney has chalked up seven goals across his past seven Premier League outings. Elsewhere, Emmanuel Dennis and Josh King will fancy their chances of exploiting the worst defense in the EPL when Leeds visits Vicarage Road on Saturday.

More Fantasy Premier League Tips for Gameweek 32

First and foremost, don’t forget about the early deadline this week. With Newcastle and Wolves clashing in Friday Night Football, make sure you finalize your FPL team at least 1.5 hours before the first game.

Please Note

It is also important that you consider Gameweek 33 when making your GW32 FPL transfers. Three teams – Aston Villa, Leeds, and Wolves – blank in GW33, while Arsenal, Brighton, Burnley, Leicester, Man Utd, and Southampton play twice.

On top of that, the Premier League recently announced rescheduled fixtures for Gameweeks 36 and 37. I strongly recommended using the FPL fixture difficulty analysis table to plan ahead.

Good luck for Gameweek 32! Join me next week as I share my Fantasy Premier League tips for Gameweek 33.
