The 27th week of the Fantasy Premier League season is here with another double for Manchester City.

After a bumper DGW that promised so much and didn’t live up to expectations – certainly if you were me – this week could be a tougher task for the players.

With the FPL deadline at 6 a.m. GMT on March 6th, here are some of the key players to consider for your team – and maybe consider putting the armband on …


Ederson, Man City (£ 6.1m)

Choosing the number 1 of a team that forgot how to lose is not an inspired differential pick, but rather a double GW against a Manchester United team that is apparently unable to compete against direct rivals and a team with no confidence in Southampton confident about not admitting to points. Twice.

Kieran Tierney, Arsenal (£ 5.2m)

This can’t just be Manchester City so bucked the trend and picked Kieran Tierney. Arsenal begin after confidence-building wins against Leeds and Leicester, with even the senior guard being strengthened. Burnley was, to be honest, a mess against Tottenham and was lucky enough to wave off Leicester with points in hand in the middle of the week. The Gunners are likely to concede a goal this weekend, especially if Ashley Barnes is still on sideline.

midfield player

If you don’t already have it, what are you waiting for? Raphinha has created more chances and expected assists (xA) than anyone in the past four weeks of play. It’s West Ham next, but Leeds is one of the few teams to play in Blank Gameweek 29 and face Fulham. Tempting.

Harry Kane, Tottenham (11.1 m)

Tottenham’s attack suddenly looks massive and Harry Kane was unlucky enough to only score once in the last Double Gameweek. With Gareth Bale and Dele Alli, who also put Heung-min Son in a more creative role – no player had more chances than the South Korean last time with nine – then Kane against Crystal Palace on Sunday – and Arsenal, Aston Villa in the BGW, and Newcastle to come – looks very appetizing.

Who should I captain?

It really couldn’t be anyone else. Ilkay Gundogan has earned more points than any other player in the past six GWs, and his record against the Big Six is ​​similarly impressive with five goals and one assist in five games. Southampton is up there with the worst in the league when it comes to taking chances so it’s Gundogan for us. Now we are waiting for Pep Roulette.
