Here is our FPL Way Picks for the Double Gameweek 35 which commences on Friday 7th May at 18:30.
Our team this week comes out at only 98.8 million. Each week we build a team with a budget of 100 million. You may have more money in the bank so you could potentially upgrade some players here.
Following the strange GW34 where we had the Man Utd v Liverpool game postponed after protests in and around Old Trafford, we have a more exciting Gameweek coming up. This week it’s a Double Gameweek where the following teams will play twice (however, don’t forget that four of these teams will have a Blank Gameweek 36):
|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)|
Leicester: Newcastle (H) | Man Utd (A)
Our Foxes picks for this double are Timothy Castagne (5.8m) and Kelechi Iheanacho (6.3m). Castagne has already shown his impact at both ends of the pitch with two attacking returns in the last 3 Gameweeks. Hopefully, Leicester will manage at least one clean sheet on top of this which supports his value. Iheanacho on the other hand was a very easy selection for this Gameweek and he will be amongst the favourites for captaincy. Since Gameweek 26, Iheanacho has scored 9 goals and 2 assists and only blanking once in that time. That’s an incredible 73 points in the last 8 Gameweeks!
Crystal Palace: Sheffield Utd (H) | Southampton (A)
For Palace, we have selected Vicente Guaita (4.8m) and Wilfried Zaha (7.1m) in our starting XI. The Eagles have the most favourable fixtures where we should expect both defensive and attacking returns. In the reverse fixture for both matches, Guaita accumulated 2 clean sheets and 4 bonus points. We know their defence hasn’t been the greatest lately but we simply can’t ignore these fixtures/stats. If there is someone who is going to step up in these games, we feel it will be Zaha. He’s scored 10 goals and 4 assists this season and we have a feeling he will add to his tally here. Another reason to get in some Palace players is that they don’t blank in Gameweek 36 and they have decent fixtures now until the end of the season.
Everton: West Ham (A) | Aston Villa (A)
Seamus Coleman (4.9m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.5m) are our picks for Everton. Coleman has provided 2 assists and 3 clean sheets in the last 5 Gameweeks and could potentially add more to his tally in these two fixtures. We can’t ignore how great Calvert-Lewin started this season. Also, with him scoring in his last fixture against Aston Villa, we have a feeling he will get some attacking returns in both of these fixtures as well.
Man Utd: Aston Villa (H) | Leicester (H)
We have actually tripled up on Man Utd assets with Luke Shaw (5.4m), Bruno Miguel Borges Fernandes (11.5m) and Mason Greenwood (7.1m) in this fixture. Although they blank in GW36, they now have the Liverpool fixture to be re-scheduled which could potentially be another upcoming Double Gameweek for them this season (fixture announcement to be announced). We’re hoping that Fernandes is back in form now, especially when he got 2 goals and 2 assists in the Europa League semi-final against Roma in their latest fixture. Greenwood has scored four and assisted once in his last four Gameweeks accumulating 35 points. With two fixtures to play at home, we feel that both of these guys will get some attacking returns.
Southampton: Liverpool (A) | Crystal Palace (H)
Our only selection for The Saints is James Ward-Prowse (5.8m). If there is any player that is going to get an attacking return, it will be this guy. Ward-Prowse has scored 8 and assisted 6 times so far this season with 1 goal and 1 assist in the previous two Premier League matches. We definitely feel he could add to his tally here which is why we have selected him in our starting XI.
Spurs: Leeds (A)
We have selected only one player from this team and that is Harry Kane (11.9m). Kane is the only player we have selected that is not playing a Double Gameweek. Why? Well, Kane is currently the highest-scoring player in the Premier League with 21 goals and joint first on assists with 13. We definitely feel he could accumulate more points in one game than others can in two. With this, the fact that Spurs don’t blank in Gameweek 36 and because they have some nice fixtures until the end of the season, we simply just couldn’t go without this man!
Our Bench Picks
Jordan Pickford (4.8m)
With two favourable fixtures and for a decent price, Pickford is a nice pick, not only for this Gameweek but for the rest of the season. A guaranteed starter and with the potential for a clean sheet or two.
James Maddison (7.3m)
Although Maddison has only recently come back into the Leicester squad and is yet to get an attacking return, he could well do some damage here. We didn’t feel 100% confident about him which is why we selected Ward-Prowse in the starting XI instead. If you are using the Bench Boost Chip though, this guy could definitely get you some points.
Joel Ward (4.3m)
Since Palace have the most favourable fixtures, we had to get another Palace defender in the squad. On paper, this could potentially be two clean sheets, hence why we have selected him.
Rob Holding (4.3m)
Adding an Arsenal defender at only 4.3m was a simple decision. We’re expecting at least one clean sheet here, and for that value, he’s worthy of being in the team.
