There are just six gameweeks remaining but a fairly sizable double this coming week could be a potentially pivotal week for a lot of FPL managers. Naturally, we’ll be focussing on sides with a double and using our FPL Fixture Tracker to help us out.
FPL GW 33 Tips – Attack
Spurs are rejuvenated under Antonio Conte and their front three are firing on all cylinders. They might not have a double this week but strong fixtures to see out the campaign and a season-ending injury to Matt Doherty make owning three Tottenham attackers a genuine option.
Heung-min Son (11.1m) has been the headline-grabber after a hat-trick last gameweek propelled him to 17 PL goals for the season. No one has scored more league goals than the South Korean in 2022 and there are no signs of his output slowing down.
Back in the swing of things, Harry Kane (12.6m) has rediscovered his playmaking boots and his link-up play with Son is telepathic. Both are in peak form and, due to their premium prices, are only owned by around 1 in 4 FPL managers.
Completing the front three is mid-season signing Dejan Kulusevski (6.3m). The Swede may be the least prolific of the trio, but at half the price of Kane, he has done more than enough to justify his considerable FPL interest, scoring three and assisting six so far.
Newcastle & Everton could be a profitable pair of fixtures for owners of Leicester assets this week before back-to-back doubles with Everton & Norwich, then Watford & Chelsea later in the season.
Leicester’s forward line is a bit of a minefield only made more difficult by their involvement in the Europa Conference League. James Maddison (6.8m) and Harvey Barnes (6.6m) have been the obvious choices for a few weeks but their form has dipped slightly in recent weeks. Nonetheless, between now and the end of the season, FPL managers can bank on decent points returns.
The stars of last gameweek were the less-fancied Ademola Lookman (5.9m) with just 0.3% ownership and the incredibly cheap Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (4.4m). The latter is a terrific option to stretch budgets, and, after a goal and an assist, evidently has something to offer FPL managers when called upon.
The Bees have been in splendid form since Christian Eriksen made his first start and now look to be as good as safe from relegation. Struggling Watford are up next before games against Southampton, Everton, and Leeds in the final three weeks.
Ivan Toney (6.8m) has blanked just once in his last five, bagging three double-figure returns and averaging 9.6 points. A real paucity of viable attackers in FPL only strengthens his case.
Owned by 0.1% of FPL managers, Yoane Wissa (5.7m) is the ultimate differential, bagging two goals in his last three. However, given his instant impact, Christian Eriksen (5.6m) is the safer pick with set-pieces a huge factor in his appeal.
FPL GW 33 Tips – Defence
The Reds have the joint-best clean sheet record in the league with 18 and face a misfiring Manchester United this week.
Twelve assists haven’t been enough to convince over 60% of FPL managers who are still without Trent Alexander-Arnold (8.4m). Not far behind is Andy Robertson (7.3m) with 10, both of whom look like top picks to see out the campaign.
Liverpool spots will naturally be at a premium for FPL managers but anyone with one spare and a restricted budget could do a lot worse than Joël Matip (5.0m), although the Cameroonian is prone to the odd rest.
The Foxes haven’t exactly been solid at the back this season, but a couple of very cheap assets and their sheer amount of fixtures makes them worth a look.
Daniel Amartey (4.0m) has been a consistent presence at the back for Leicester and could be involved in as many as nine games in six gameweeks. Alongside him, the returning Wesley Fofana (4.3m) is a fixture in the side when fit, but his lengthy injury does raise questions over his immediate starting place.
We wrap things up with the Saints who just received their seasonal thrashing, this time at the hands of Chelsea. Despite that, Southampton face a double against an Arsenal side who blanked against Palace and Brighton last week, and a goal-shy Burnley.
Kyle Walker-Peters (4.8m) is a safe choice in terms of security of starts, with Tino Livramento (4.3m) not looking as assured. Mohammed Salisu (4.5m) didn’t have his best game last time out but should continue at the heart of the Saints’ defence. Meanwhile, Fraser Forster (4.4m) should continue between the sticks, especially with Alex McCarthy (4.3m) not being available.
