Here are The FPL Way Value Picks for Double Gameweek 35 which commences on Friday 7th May at 18:30.
This is our second edition of Value Picks selections, we basically pick a side of 15 players (all with a low budget) to help you with your transfers should you need to get a budget player into your squad. This weeks team comes out at only 76.9 million.
This week it’s a Double Gameweek where the following teams will play twice, do remember, however, that four of these teams will have a Blank Gameweek 36). On top of this, we also have the fixture for Man Utd v Liverpool to be confirmed, and there are already talks that this could be rescheduled into GW35 but this is yet to be confirmed. Here are the Double fixtures as they currently stand:
|ARS||WBA (H), CHE (A)||–|
|AVL||MUN (H), EVE (H)||CRY (A)|
|CHE||MCI (A), ARS (H)||–|
|CRY||SHU (A), SOU (A)||AVL (H)|
|EVE||WHU (A), AVL (A)||SHU (H)|
|LEI||NEW (H), MUN (A)||–|
|MUN||AVL (A), LEI (H)||–|
|SOU||LIV (A), CRY (H)||FUL (H)|
The FPL Way XV – Who Are The Best Value FPL Players To Own For DGW35?
We will be going through all the fixtures for our selected value picks and providing reasoning as to why these budget players could add potential value for the upcoming Double Gameweek.
Leicester: Newcastle (H) | Man Utd (A)
Kelechi Iheanacho (6.3m) is our pick for the Foxes and he was without a doubt the easiest selection for the team. For his low price tag, current form and a very likely favourite for captaincy, this was a no brainer. Since GW26, Iheanacho has only blanked once, and within that time he has scored 9, assisted twice and amassed a whopping 73 points!
Crystal Palace: Sheffield Utd (H) | Southampton (A)
For the Eagles, we have selected Joel Ward (4.3m) and Christian Benteke (5.5m). Palace has the most favourable fixtures this Gameweek. In the reverse fixture for the two games, Palace kept a clean sheet in each game hence why we went for a defender (Ward). Although Benteke isn’t in too great of form recently, if he’s going to add some attacking returns to his tally, it will no doubt be in these fixtures.
Southampton: Liverpool (A) | Crystal Palace (H)
Our pick for The Saints is James Ward-Prowse (5.8m). With Ings out of the squad, Ward-Prowse will be on both set-pieces and penalties. He has scored 8 goals and provided 6 assists so far this season. If there is one person that will get some attacking returns for Southampton, it will no doubt be this fella!
Aston Villa: Man Utd (H) | Everton (H)
We have doubled up on Villa players including Bertrand Traoré (5.8m), and Ollie Watkins (6.5m). With two home fixtures and a team that has scored 9 goals in the last 5 GW’s, we feel that there will be some attacking returns. In the last five Gameweeks, Watkins has scored three goals and assisted twice and Traoré has assisted twice in this time as well.
Everton: West Ham (A) | Aston Villa (A)
We only have the one pick for The Toffees with Jordan Pickford (4.8m). We’re expecting at least one clean sheet and we feel he will add value to your team in upcoming Gameweeks as well. Everton will face Sheffield United (H) in G36 and Wolves (H) in GW37 which will make him a great keeper for these matches as well.
Man Utd: Aston Villa (H) | Leicester (H)
Our picks for Man Utd are Victor Lindelöf (4.8m) and Scott McTominay (4.9m). Both players are regular starters for The Devils and with two home fixtures and the price tag they have, we simply couldn’t ignore these guys.
Arsenal: West Brom (H) | Chelsea (A)
For Arsenal, we have Rob Holding (4.3m) and Bukayo Saka (5.1m). Although Holding didn’t play in GW34, that was because David Luiz started in his place. David Luiz actually picked up a hamstring injury in this game so we feel Holding could be back in the starting XI for these matches. Saka is also a regular starter for the team and hopefully, he can bag some attacking returns, especially in the West Brom fixture.
Our Bench Picks
Vicente Guaita (4.8m)
The choice between Pickford and Guaita was a difficult one. Although Palace has the easiest of fixtures, we benched Guaita as we didn’t want to double up on Palace defence. Guaita could potentially get some nice points in these fixtures so he most certainly is a great pick.
Jorge Luiz Frello Filho (Jorginho) (4.7m)
For his low price tag and a potential starter for both games, we just had to include this guy. He has scored 6 goals and provided 2 assists so far this season.
Ezri Konsa Ngoyo (4.7m)
Aston Villa doesn’t have the best of defensive fixtures but they do play at home twice. They also benefit from playing in the Blank Gameweek 36 playing Crystal Palace.
Jack Stephens (4.6m)
Southampton has some decent fixtures coming up and also don’t blank in Gameweek 36. There is potential for one clean sheet in the upcoming double!
