The double gameweek action begins this weekend as Palace and Everton play Norwich and Watford respectively before facing each other.
Whilst Palace have a home double, Everton will be on their travels. High scores are far from guaranteed but with two opportunities to impress, we’ve chosen a pair from each team for this week’s Fantasy Football Addict Select XI.
It’s also important to note that they both also have double gameweeks to follow in round 34. Palace have a particularly difficult double as they travel to Arsenal and United, whilst Everton host Southampton before visiting Anfield for the Merseyside derby.
Just one more thing, both Palace and Everton blank in Gameweek 35 so avoid loading up as United, Norwich, Watford and West Ham also miss out, but let’s move on to the gameweek at hand.
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…
- Joe HART [WBA(H), 5.6m] – City have only conceded a single goal in their last 4 games, turning on the style against weaker sides. Next up, they face West Brom who have failed to register a shot on target in 7 games this season, which bodes well for Hart.
- Scott DANN [NOR(H), EVE(H), 5.7m] – Our first double gameweeker is Palace’s top defender. Dann has picked up 5 goals and 2 assists to make up for Palace’s defensive struggles (only 6 clean sheets all season), racking up 113 points so far. With 2 home games, Dann is set for a decent score and possibly more as Palace look to climb further away from the relegation zone.
- Seamus COLEMAN [WAT(A), CPL(A), 5.8m] – Coleman has had an underwhelming season by his previous standards but he has called on Everton to finish strongly. Coleman picked up 2 bonus points despite being on the losing side against United and in Gameweek 33, he has 2 chances to build on this performance.
- Charlie DANIELS [AVL(A), 5.0m] – After the 4-0 defeat against City, Bournemouth have a fantastic opportunity to bounce back when they travel to Villa Park. Villa are rooted to the bottom and it’s only a matter of time before their relegation is mathematically confirmed.
- Alexis SANCHEZ [WHM(A), 10.9m] – Sanchez fully justified our captaincy pick last week as he cemented his recent form with a goal and an assist to rack up 14 points against Watford. It won’t be easy taking on West Ham but goals can be expected and Sanchez will be the man to watch for Arsenal.
- Yannick BOLASIE (C) [NOR(H), EVE(H), 6.0m] – With Palace’s home double in mind, we’re taking a gamble and captaining the man they voted as their player of the month in March, following his return from injury. Bolasie’s shown signs of promise, looking to set up goals for his team mates and with an ownership of just 3.5%, he’s a massive differential.
- Kevin DE BRUYNE [WBA(H), 10.3m] – De Bruyne is currently owned by 5.6% of all managers but you can expect that figure to rise with his fine comeback performance against Bournemouth. It was followed up by his goal in Paris and he could be a fine alternative to those looking to go without Aguero to free up funds.
- Riyad MAHREZ [SUN(A), 7.4m] – Mahrez has scored 3 in his last 4 away games, which bodes well against a Sunderland side who were firmly on the attacking foot when hosting West Brom. Leicester are dangerous on the counter attack and Mahrez is a clear threat.
- Philippe COUTINHO [STO(H), 8.2m] – Coutinho has been fantastic since returning from injury and looks like a man keen to make up for lost time under Klopp. He’s scored in both of his last 2 and is an excellent option for covering Liverpool’s attacking potential ahead of their upcoming double gameweeks.
- Romelu LUKAKU [WAT(A), CPL(A), 9.0m] – With Everton playing twice, we’re backing the obvious option of Lukaku. Despite failing to score against Arsenal and United, Lukaku will be looking to get back to the form that saw him score 3 in 4 previously.
- Graziano PELLE [NEW(H), 7.8m] – Against Newcastle’s defence, Pelle will be looking to build on the 3 goals he’s scored in the last 3 games. With an ownership of just 7.9%, if Pelle comes good, you can expect to rise up the rankings, whilst another advantage is Gameweek 35, where Southampton play Villa.
