Fantasy Premier League Preview: Week 34 (Double Gameweek)
Written by Patrick Echatah
Gameweek 34 will include two games (double gameweek), which is good news for Fantasy Premier League managers.
If managers can correctly guess the outcome from a wide range of alternatives, Liverpool, Fulham, Manchester City, West Ham, Brighton, and Manchester United will all play twice with large point totals on the line.
Here are our transfer and captain suggestions for this week’s FPL, which closes at 11 a.m. BST on Saturday.
Gameweek 33 Top Scorers
De Bruyne – 19 points
Mings – 15 points
Haaland – 14 points
Neves – 13 points
Zanka – 12 points
Steele – 10 points
Matip – 10 points
Gakpo – 10 points
Danilo – 9 points
Top Picks For The Week…
It’s time to bring Nick Pope back into your FPL team’s. Although Newcastle doesn’t have a double gameweek this week, the Magpies were dominant versus Tottenham. In terms of clean sheets this year, the Englishman is just second to David de Gea.
Reece James’ season-ending injury leaves Ben Chilwell as the full-back with almost no one to turn to for creative input. And despite the Blues’ terrible form, a breakthrough is undoubtedly on the way. Along with his offensive threat, the Englishman hasn’t made a single mistake this season that has directly resulted in a goal conceded.
Expect Brighton and Solly March to recover from back to back losses against Manchester United and Nottingham Forest. The winger ranks in the top 10 in the league for a number of noteworthy statistics, including xA, dribbles, and successful 1v1s. He is just behind Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, and Bruno Fernandes in terms of making dangerous passes.
This week, Mohamed Salah will be a well-liked option, but Cody Gakpo is a good, less expensive alternative who still plays a crucial role in the Liverpool assault. In his last three games, he has scored two goals and provided an assist, bringing his total points to 21. On Wednesday, he received the entire three bonus for his goal against West Ham.

Luke Shaw appears to be the best choice from Manchester United’s backline, in the wake of Harry Maguire’s return, this should cause him to switch across to left-back, where Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot are battling for playing time and Tyrell Malacia is out of favor.
Aston Villa, who is playing well, is confident about their trip to Old Trafford, and Brighton, who lost at Wembley last weekend, are both likely ready to exact retribution. As a result, Manchester United’s double gameweek is by no means simple. Marcus Rashford may benefit from that, though, since both Villa and Brighton are vying for a spot in the Europa League and will want to outplay United as a consequence.
Trent Alexander-Arnold has now contributed at least one assist in each of his previous four games, for a total of five, thanks to one he supplied during Wednesday’s victory at the London Stadium. Unsurprisingly, Kevin De Bruyne has the most in the division during that time frame with four, and he has three more than any defense.
FPL: Gameweek 34 Captain Picks
Erling Haaland has amassed more FPL points than anyone since Gameweek 30 despite only playing three games compared to others’ four, including three straight double-digit totals against Southampton, Leicester, and Arsenal. That total may be much higher given that he was substituted early in the first two games and had numerous opportunities to score against the Gunners.
Kevin De Bruyne
Kevin De Bruyne is an expensive signing that many players still don’t have as of today; he is now in 26.8% of FPL teams. His incredible recent run was capped off with two goals and an assist in that resounding victory over Arsenal. De Bruyne has scored a whopping 49 points in his last four appearances. That’s all come from three goals and five assists – it puts him in a great position ahead of two favourable fixtures.
Gameweek 33 saw Kevin De Bruyne fill our premium midfield spot, and we were glad we chose him over Mo Salah because the Belgian outperformed the Egyptian by picking up 19 points. Unless you can afford both along with Erling Haaland, choosing between them is probably the biggest challenge facing FPL managers this week. Salah might win if your budget only allows for one player because both of his games are at Anfield and Liverpool are making a late push for the top four.
