If you have ever played regular FPL, there are very few differences between the two. You get a £100m budget to create a 15-man squad, and based on your players' performance in real-life premier league games, they will each accumulate points. The total points of all players in your starting 11 at the end of a game week will be added up, and that is your score for the week. Your captain gets double points, so choose wisely!

You may make one free transfer in/out of your squad per week, but any more than this will cost you four points each. You may only have a maximum of three players from one Premier League club.

For example, you cannot have Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luis Diaz and Virgil Van Dijk all in the same squad.

There are some key differences between regular FPL, and these are:

  • Wildcard is the only chip. One of these is to be used by Gameweek 19, and one more from Gameweek 20 onwards.

  • Saving up free transfers is unlimited, as opposed to being capped at two.

  • Each week, the deadline for transfers is right up until the kick-off of the first game.

  • Prices do not begin to change until Gameweek three.

  • If a goalkeeper scores (Alisson £6m), they get eight points instead of six.

  • 0.5 points will be added to a goalkeeper's score per save they make.

Below we have provided a table so you can see how points are scored and deducted:
