Fantasy Premier League GW34 – All You Need to Know

We had highs and lows last Saturday, with the 0-0 draw of the Merseyside Derby being one of the more underwhelming matches of Gameweek 33, but the Manchester Derby more than making up for the lack of drama in the opener… and with a huge “double gameweek” ahead of us, this weekend’s Premier League action should produce some massive scores for FPL managers around the globe!

Below you’ll find the Gameweek 34 starting lineup for the Free Super Tips Fantasy Premier League team, candidates for the captain’s armband, and other potential transfer options worth consideration.

FST – GW34 Captain

Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) – £11.6m

Manchester United vs Swansea predictions, free betting tips and match preview

Once the most-owned player in Fantasy Premier League, forward Romelu Lukaku has become one of this season’s most criticised figures, but his 13 goals in his 17 matches for club and country across all competitions are a timely reminder of the Belgian’s ability to deliver. Manchester United have a very favourable double gameweek ahead, facing West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday, who are without a clean sheet in seven away trips, before travelling to Bournemouth on Wednesday – only The Cherries have conceded the second-most goals at home this season.

Other GW34 Captain Alternatives

Harry Kane or Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur) – £12.9m or £9.4m

Leicester vs Tottenham predictions, betting tips and match preview

Harry Kane needs no introduction and as this season’s top scoring forward in FPL, it’s straightforward enough to see why any manager would want him in their team ahead of a double gameweek. Christian Eriksen, on the other hand, is the latest hot option for midfield, and should prove to be a key differential, being found in just 16% of squads. Spurs host Manchester City, who have suffered three successive defeats across all competitions, conceding eight goals, before travelling to Brighton & Hove Albion, who have conceded twelve goals at home in four matches against the top six. The Danish playmaker’s statistics over the last six Premier League matches show why he should be the go-to option – his 14 chances created are the most of any Spurs player, while his 21 shots, 10 of which found the target, are again more than any other team-mate.

Eden Hazard or Alvaro Morata (Chelsea) – £10.6m or £10.4m

Chelsea vs Manchester City predictions, betting tips and match preview

While neither Eden Hazard nor Alvaro Morata are in particularly top form, the pair should not be overlooked ahead of this double gameweek. Hazard has been a prolific points scorer against struggling sides – in fact, five of his six double-figure tallies have come against teams outside the top nine – while Morata has been involved in three consecutive goals (two scored + one assisted) for the first time since returning to Antonio Conte’s starting XI. Both look to punish a Southampton defense, who have conceded nine goals over their last three Premier League outings, before another away trip to Burnley on Thursday.

Riyad Mahrez or Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – £9.0m or £8.9m

Leicester City vs Stoke City Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Jamie Vardy continued building on his second-best ever Premier League season with an eighth goal in ten outings against Newcastle last weekend – 16 goals in 32 matches for the Foxes in total. With one of the more favourable runs of fixtures ahead, including a “double gameweek” against Burnley and Southampton, he should be looking to keep this tally growing. Burnley, though in good form, have kept just one clean sheet in 2018, so Algerian midfielder Riyad Mahrez, who has scored or assisted in 11 of his last 16 starts, returning double-digits on five occasions, will also be looking to take advantage of this.

FST – Ones to Watch

Alexis Sanchez (Manchester United) – £11.5m

Newcastle vs Manchester United predictions, free betting tips and match preview

The top FPL player in 2016/17 looks to finish the 17/18 season with a bang. Now more settled as a Manchester United player, Sanchez looks capable of emulating the form that we all know he is capable of. The Chilean has a goal and four assists over his last four Premier League outings, producing back-to-back double-figure scores for the first time this season, and with two double gameweeks ahead, an end of season surge from him would come as no surprise. As a midfielder, Sanchez benefits from an extra point for every goal he scores, and well as one for each United clean sheet, both of which look likely ahead of matches against West Brom and Bournemouth.

Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur) – £9.0m

Huddersfield vs Tottenham predictions, betting tips and match preview

Dele Alli has pulled a few top performances out of the bag just in time for the end-of-season run. The English midfielder has produced three goals, three assists and five bonus points over his last four Premier League outings – an average of 9.25 points per match – following an indifferent spell of FPL form which saw his ownership plummet. His late-season flourish does make him all the more significant for those managers looking to make up ground on mini-league rivals, especially with a double gameweek against an out-of-sorts Man City and Brighton ahead.

Ashley Barnes or Chris Wood (Burnley) – £6.3m or £5.4m

West Brom vs Burnley predictions, betting tips and match preview

Burnley strikers Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood are offering FPL value that few other forwards match. Barnes has delivered goals and bonus points in four of his last five appearances – in fact, his 22 touches in the opposition box and six shots on target between Gameweeks 28-30 are more than any forward in the game – and a double gameweek consisting of two home matches (one against Leicester and one against Chelsea) is the perfect opportunity for him to continue this form. Wood, who returned to the Burnley squad in Gameweek 29 after a spell sidelined, should also prove a differential, having clocked four goals, one assist and six bonus points over his last four Premier League outings.
