The schedule for Gameweek 26 is standard, with 10 games spread out from Saturday lunchtime to Monday night, involving all 20 clubs. Double gameweeks taking place in 27 and 29, either side of a mega blank in gameweek 28, will make things considerably more frantic. In the upcoming weeks, the Free Hit and Bench Boost chips will be well-liked.

Similar to earlier pieces, the approaching schedule has had some influence on our choices for this weekend. Four clubs—Brentford, Brighton, Crystal Palace, and Southampton—play twice in Gameweek 27. The first two of these clubs, in particular, should draw immediate attention in the transfer market.

Gameweek 25 Top Scorers

Martinelli – 26 points
Van Dijk – 24 points
Zinchenko – 18 points
Saka – 15 points
Firpo – 15 points
Ings – 13 points
Ramsdale – 13 points
Foden – 13 points
Dier – 12 points

Top Picks For The Week…

Gabriel Martinelli

At the start of the season, Gabriel Martinelli was a very well-liked choice, but after a few quiet weeks, some may have lost hope in the Arsenal player. Yet, Gameweek 25 was a remarkably effective one. Throughout the course of their two games, he scored three times, giving his owners 26 points. The return of Martinelli’s scoring form comes at a critical time for the Gunners, who are currently five points ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League.

Fraser Forster

After posting back-to-back clean sheets, Fraser Forster has emerged as the finest budget goalkeeper in the world as Danny Ward has returned to his unimpressive early-season form after the World Cup. Hugo Lloris is still recovering from an injury, thus Forster is presently the least expensive starting goalkeeper at around £3.9m. Forster has been a dominant presence for Spurs after a challenging debut as the Frenchman’s backup against Leicester, despite not being overly challenged by either West Ham or Chelsea.

Oleksandr Zinchenko

Oleksandr Zinchenko is the least-owned defender in Arsenal’s back five, but his increasing offensive threat may make him a valuable differential in the coming weeks. In a recent victory over Aston Villa, the Ukrainian scored his first Arsenal goal and first Premier League goal. He then assisted Bukayo Saka in a 4-0 drubbing of Everton. Zinchenko is a far from prolific goal scorer, but he is interestingly second among all defenders for attempts on goal (with 14) and first for shots on target since the Premier League resumed on Boxing Day, only behind Newcastle’s Fabian Schar (19). (five).

Lewis Dunk

Although Pervis Estupinan is a more intriguing choice, the in-form left-back was unable to participate in Brighton’s FA Cup victory against Stoke on Wednesday. If Estupinan is available, keep a watch on Roberto De Zerbi’s pre-game press conference before the West Ham game because he likely replaces Lewis Dunk as the Seagulls’ starting defender. But that doesn’t mean Dunk isn’t a solid choice on his own. Dunk is by far the best Brighton player to target in terms of starting security because he has played 500 more minutes than any other defense in their lineup.

Martin Odegaard

Martin Odegaard’s FPL returns have decreased recently after a hot streak, with only two attacking returns in his previous six games. He still ranks third among midfielders in FPL scoring, and in his previous match against Bournemouth, he scored 16 points. Due to their opponents’ poorest away record in the league (32 goals allowed in 12 games), Arsenal’s opponents this week must almost certainly double their offensive output.

Ollie Watkins

Only two players—Rashford, who is now in the finest form of his career, and Erling Haaland, who is firmly on track to break Mo Salah’s record for the most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season—have scored more than four goals each during the past five gameweeks. Who else? Ollie Watkins of the Aston Villa. Watkins has had his best run of form in a Villa jersey ever since his former strike partner Danny Ings left the club. Villa’s decision to sell Ings to West Ham was a significant declaration of faith in Watkins’ abilities.

FPL: Gameweek 26 Captain Picks

Marcus Rashford

Rashford has been Manchester United’s most important player in recent games, but with the shaky performance of Alexander-Arnold’s since the beginning of the season, Erik ten Hag would be inclined to start him in his preferred position on the left. On the one hand, a great player who is seriously out of shape; on the other, a great player who is in the best shape of his life. With their divergent seasons, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Marcus Rashford’s matchup on Sunday at Anfield may have the most fascinating subplot.

Bukayo Saka

Although Bukayo Saka drew a frustrating blank in his first match against Leicester, he more than made up for it in the second game by scoring and contributing an assist as Arsenal easily defeated Everton. He was one of the most captained players of Gameweek 25. With 10 goals and 9 assists across 25 Premier League matches, Saka has already had his most fruitful season.

Erling Haaland 

Erling Haaland had been putting in work with an assist and a goal in his four appearances before to Gameweek 25, but it was still encouraging to see him record his first double-digit haul since Gameweek 21 during City’s convincing 4-1 victory over Bournemouth last weekend. After his shot ricocheted into Julian Alvarez’s path via the bar, Haaland was credited with the “assist” on the goal. He later doubled City’s lead with a predatory finish.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane will return to the starting lineup of Tottenham having been a sub in their shock FA Cup defeat to championship side Sheffield United, and the Englishman should have opportunities away at Wolves.
