Recommended Player for Gameweek 31 - Ryo Miyaichi


With Gameweek 31 upon us I didn’t think that I would be endorsing a player from a team battling against relegation.

However with some valid reasons at hand I have decided to endorse Bolton’s Ryo Miyaichi (on loan from Arsenal).

The Japanese international has played an integral part in reviving the fortunes of Bolton. In fact two back-to-back victories from the last couple of Gameweeks has ensured that Bolton are out of the relegation zone for the time being.

This was in large part due to him assisting a goal in each of those matches. Looking ahead, Bolton have a good run of upcoming fixtures as follows:

GW 31 – Wolves (A)
GW 32 – Fulham (H)
GW 33 – Newcastle (A)
GW 34 – No Bolton fixture
GW 35 – Swansea (H) / Aston Villa (A) – Double Gameweek for Bolton
GW 36 – Sunderland (A) / Tottenham (H) – Double Gameweek for Bolton
GW 37 – West Brom (H)
GW 38 – Stoke (A)

Most significantly, it must be noted that Bolton have two double gameweeks coming up which bodes well for transferring him in.

He is only selected by 0.7% of FPL managers which naturally makes him a differential.

Against a Wolves team in free fall decline (5 defeats in their last 6) what is to stop him from scoring a goal? After all Miyaichi has already shown his capability of scoring in a Bolton shirt during the FA Cup. At 4.9 he is definitely a steal purchase.

He may not have had first team opportunities at Arsenal, but during his last loan spell (at Feyenoord) he scored 3 goals in 12 matches.

Aged 19 he is showing promise of developing into a very decent footballer. The opportunity to save Bolton (and make a name for himself in doing so) could help Miyaichi prosper into a world class talent. So what are you waiting for? Buy him!
