The international break has given us the ideal opportunity to take stock of all the double gameweek news and try to figure out the best way to end the season.
We’re set for some exciting rounds of fantasy football and hopefully at least one where we break the 100 points! With plenty of teams playing twice, it’s a very realistic possibility.
With just one round before the double gameweek action begins, every transfer you make should be with the subsequent fixtures in mind. It’s important to not get too carried away with the doubles though and ensure you’ve got a decent team for Gameweek 35 where the FA cup impacts the amount of teams in action. Anyway, let’s push on.
So without further ado, here is our weekly FFA Select XI, where we’ve chosen 11 players in a valid formation who we think will score highly this gameweek…
- Thibaut COURTOIS [AVL(A), 5.3m] – Chelsea have only conceded more than one goal in a game once in the last 8 gameweeks. Courtois is due a clean sheet and it may very well come at Villa Park against a team facing life in the Championship next season.
- Aaron CRESSWELL [CPL(H), 5.7m] – West Ham have a great shot of making the top 4 and some strong fixtures to finish the season on. They were fantastic at Chelsea and they’ll be targeting 3 points at home to Palace. Cresswell is the stand out choice at the back given the support he provides on the attack on top of any potential defensive returns.
- Hector BELLERIN [WAT(H), 6.3m] – Bellerin has finally come alive going forward with 3 assists in his last 2 games and he’s become the must have Arsenal defender as they look to chase down Leicester at the top.
- Timm KLOSE [NEW(H), 4.2m] – Norwich are embroiled in a serious relegation battle but they will take heart from back to back clean sheets and a vital 3 points gained at the Hawthorns. In Gameweek 32, they host Newcastle and another organised display at the back could provide the foundations for a very important victory.
- Alexis SANCHEZ (C) [WAT(H), 10.8m] – Sanchez has struggled to justify his pricetag but for managers looking to rise up the rankings, the Chilean should be considered. With 11% ownership, Sanchez could be the ideal option as Arsenal embark on a favourable run of fixtures to end the season. He’s also been Arsenal’s best attacking outlet in the last 4 gameweeks creating 8 chances and having 7 goal attempts.
- Dimitri PAYET [CPL(H), 8.3m] – Payet has been incredible for West Ham this season and if he continues his fantastic form, the Hammers have a great shot of breaking into the top 4. In the last 5 gameweeks, he’s scored twice and set up another 4, and is sure to cause all sorts of problems for Palace.
- Marko ARNAUTOVIC [SWA(H), 6.6m] – Arnautovic is another midfielder having a fine season, having racked up 140 points from his goalscoring exploits. He’s already reached double figures and will be going for more goals against Swansea.
- Riyad MAHREZ [SOT(H), 7.4m] – Mahrez was the difference once again with the winning goal against Palace and whilst some managers may be considering ditching the midfield maestro in favour of double gameweekers, here at Fantasy Football Addict, we have no intention of letting Mahrez go.
- Sergio AGUERO [BOU(A), 13.6m] – City’s title charge has taken some serious blows in recent weeks and with 15 points between them and Leicester, their focus is now on ensuring they have the Champions League to look forward to next season. They’ve got lots of injuries to contend with and will hope that De Bruyne can return to add much-needed firepower as Aguero looks to get back on the goal trail.
- Jermain DEFOE [WBA(H), 5.1m] – Defoe is finding some form as Sunderland seek the points to secure their survival, in the last 3 gameweeks, he’s scored twice and set up another. With 12 goals to his name, Defoe’s unerring ability to find the back of the net could prove vital to Sunderland’s hopes.
- Harry KANE [LIV(A), 10.4m] – Kane is on fire with 5 goals in his last 3 games. Despite no double in sight, you’d have to be insane to get rid of a striker inspiring Spurs to their closest ever title challenge for years.
