Trent Alexander-Arnold is still the best defensive asset in Fantasy, despite the incredible form of Man City full-back Joao Cancelo (£7.2m)

The Liverpool right-back is a captaincy option for DGW26 as the Reds host Norwich and Leeds this weekend.

Bargain Buy – Ben White (£4.5m)

An Arsenal defender is a must-have as we head into Double GW26, as the North Londoners host Brentford and Wolves at the Emirates.

English centre-back Ben White is the best value for money as far as Gunners defenders go, but you may want to choose Gabriel (£5.3m) or Kieren Tierney (£5.1m).


These two midfielders are on FIRE for their clubs.

Star Signing – Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)

Mohamed Salah has returned from AFCON and we expect the Egyptian to be in Jurgen Klopp's starting XI for the upcoming Double Gameweek.

This is a great chance to use your Tripple Captain Chip, as Liverpool face Norwich and Leeds at Anfield in one of the most enticing Double GWs of the season.

Bargain Buy – Jarrod Bowen (£7.0m)

West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen is in the form of his life right now and if you don't own him in FPL yet, now is the time to bring him in ahead of a home fixture v Newcastle.

The Englishman has two FPL double-figure hauls in his last two appearances in the Premier League and we wouldn't be surprised to see three in a row.


These two strikers have great Double Gameweek potential.

Star Signing – Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m)

With Pierre Emerick Aubameyang having joined Barcelona in January, French forward Alexandre Lacazette is firmly Arsenal's number one striker for the remainder of the season.

As mentioned previously, the Gunners have great Double GW fixtures this weekend, but also a relatively favourable run in to the end of the season too.

Bargain Buy – Emmanuel Dennis (£6.1m)

Despite having not produced an attacking return in the last six gameweeks, Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis is a great option for Double GW26.

The Hornets travel to Aston Villa before hosting Crystal Palace in DGW26 and Dennis will be hoping to re-find his goal-scoring form.
