We are down to the final 3 game weeks of the English Premier League where each and every game is important for the teams battling for a top-four position. This coming week we have a big double gameweek in hand and practically a triple gameweek for Manchester United. Their match the last weekend was called off after anti-Glazers protests ran riot at the stadium. Last Gameweek was a pretty usual one as almost all the big teams registered their convincing wins. The only disappointment was Leicester being held by Southampton and Everton losing to Aston Villa. Other than these two, City, Chelsea, Spurs, and Arsenal all recorded big victories. Now, it’s time to make the team for the upcoming double gameweek which has gameweek in midweek also. There are a few big clashes such as City Vs Chelsea, Chelsea Vs Arsenal, and United Vs Liverpool and Leicester.
We at BTM will provide you with the most favorable team to earn maximum points in the Gameweek keeping in mind the recent performance of the players and their upcoming opponents.
Goalkeeper for FPL
Vicente Guaita (Crystal Palace) -Value – £4.8 M
The selection of Vicente Guaita as the Goalkeeper would surprise many of the FPL team makers. It’s a choice that needs some lucid explanation. Crystal Palace has the best opponents in this gameweek from a defensive perspective. They are playing away to relegated side Sheffield United and at home to Aston Villa. Both these two fixtures serve as an excellent potential to keep a clean sheet by the Palace team. Villa and Sheffield aren’t too much offensively sound and Guaita might look to capitalize this opportunity to record a clean sheet.
Defenders for FPL
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) Value – £7.5 M
Trent Alexander-Arnold, the English right-back, has been one of the few positives for Liverpool in their disastrous season. He has been quite phenomenal for the Merseyside giants for the past few seasons and continued in this year also. He has 2 goals and 7 assists in his kitty till now. Of late, he is in good shape and has 2 goals and 1 assist in the last 4 matches. Against United and Southampton, he is expected to come up with a good performance and help his side to win.
Timothy Castagne (Leicester) Value- £ 5.8 M
The Belgian is one of the main reasons why Leicester is so defensively sound and good on attacks from the wings. He has played a pivotal role in Leicester attaining a top-4 spot this season. In the last four matches, the Foxes have only conceded two goals and it’s largely because of him. This coming week, Leicester is playing against Newcastle and Manchester United. In both games, Castagne is likely to once again prove himself decisive for his side and keep a clean sheet.
Luke Shaw(Man United) Value – £ 5.4 M
The English left has once again regained his form for United this season and has been one of their key players. He is in sensational form for united in this 20-21 edition of PL with some eye-catching performances from him. In this season itself, he has recorded 1 goal and 6 assists as of now. He is one of the key players in the United defense. With United having a triple gameweek, one can be pretty sure of having a solid show on display from him.
Midfielders for FPL
Bruno Fernandes (Man United) Value – £11.5 M
If you are making an FPL team in this year’s EPL, then it is quite unquestionable to keep Fernandes in the team. Such is the Portuguese’s performance this season that he has earned the most points(1848) in this year’s FPL. He is undoubtedly the fulcrum of the United side and the driving force of the team. His stats also provide testimony to his selection. He has already netted 26 times and assisted 17 times. United has fixtures against Liverpool, AstonVilla, and Leicester this week and it is hoped that he will bring a substantial amount of points for the team makers. He is our captain’s choice for this FPL week.
Mason Greenwood (United) Value – £ 7.1 M
The Englishman is also one of the best finds for United in this season. The youngster has also lived up to the expectations of Solskjær who heaped praise on him. This man has almost cemented his place in the united team and is crucial for them also. He has already found the back of the net 10 times and recorded 5 assists already. In the last four games in PL, he scored 4 goals and 1 assist. In this triple gameweek for united, he is sure to fetch us a healthy amount of points.
Wilfred Zaha(Crystal Palace) Value – £7.2 M
The Palace midfielder has been in good shape for the Eagles in this season. He is one of the many reasons why they have been able to avoid relegation and are in good position. He has scored 10 goals and given away 2 assists for them. Crystal Palace is having quite easy fixtures in this gameweek and it would provide the stage for Zaha to fire again. He will definitely come up with a delightful performance.
Jesse Lingard (West Ham) Value – £6.6 M
The Englishman is having a dream season since going to Westham on loan from United. He has once again regained his lost touch and is proving quite decisive for his side. He has scored a whopping 9 goals and 3 assists from only 12 appearances. In the last five matches, he has recorded 3 goals and 2 assists for his side. West Ham is scheduled to play Everton and Brighton in this gameweek and Lingard is anticipated to put up a good show.
FORWARDS FOR FPL
Ollie Watkins ( Aston Villa) Value – £ 6.5M
The Englishman is in sensational form for the Villans in this year’s PL. He has already found the back of the net 15 times and gave 4 assists. He is the main reason why Villa has been good at scoring goals upfront. In the last five matches, he has 3 goals and 1 assist to his name. Villa is slated to play United and Palace this week and Watkins is sure to be on top again.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) Value – £ 7.5 M
Dominic Calvert Lewin has been in some swashbuckling form for the Toffees in this season. He has played a pivotal role in their quest for a top-four finish this year. He has a whopping 20 goals in his kitty and is in the list of top five goalscorers in PL. With Westham fixed to play Villa and Everton this week, we fancy his chances to give us a good number of points.
Kelechi Iheanacho(Leicester) Value – £ 6.2 M
The Nigerian has been in red hot form for the Foxes this season and has formed a deadly partnership with Vardy. He is a fox in the box and doesn’t let any opportunities go away in the opposition box. Iheanacho has chipped in with 5 goals and 2 assists in the last 5 matches. He will look to polish his scoring boots once again when Leicester plays Newcastle and United in this double gameweek. He is also the Vice-Captain of our team.
Net Value – £ 76.1 M, enough fund for Substitutes
Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa) Value – £ 5.2 M
The Argentine goalie has been in superb form between the sticks for the Villans this season. He is among the top five keepers in EPL having made a record 119 saves for them. His performance always proves to be decisive for his side and comes when it matters the most. Against United and Palace, he will surely come up with a solid performance to boost his side’s chances of winning.
Lucas Digne( Everton) Value – £ 6.1 M
The Frenchman has also been in excellent form for the Toffees in the left-back position this season. He has made some exceptional performances for his side throughout this year. Having 7 assists as a defender is quite impressive stat. Everton is slated to play Westham and Villa this gameweek and he is tipped to put up a good show.
Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea) Value – £ 4.7 M
The German defender is now one of the best in the EPL and has improved a lot under Tuchel. All have seen his impressive performances against Madrid on both legs. He is now the main defensive mainstay of Chelsea. With Chelsea having tough fixtures this week against City and Arsenal, we fancy his chances of keeping a clean sheet.
Mason Mount (Chelsea) Value – £ 7.3 M
The youngster has been on another level this season since Tuchel took over Chelsea. Mount is probably the most important reason why Chelsea is playing so well of late. He will be high on confidence after knocking out Madrid and playing in the UCL finals. He has bagged a total of 9 goals and 7 assists this season. With tricky fixtures coming against City and Arsenal, he is expected to come good once again.
Total Value – £99.5 M
