Plan for the future with your GW27 selection

As we head into the final few weeks of the season, the fixture schedule gets a bit hectic on FPL.

This week it is key to look ahead to a tricky GW29 (only four matches), especially if you have used up your Wild Card and Free hit.

Check out our top tips for GW27 below.

Keep hold of Ederson as he has a double game week, but if you don’t have the Man City keeper then these are the men to bring in.

Star Signing – Emiliano Martinez (£5.3m)

POINT MACHINE - Martinez makes more saves than any other keeper

The top scoring goalkeeper this season, Emiliano Martinez is currently part of nearly 40% of FPL sides.

With games against Wolves, Newcastle and then Spurs in GW 29 coming up, Martinez is one to bring in this week.

Bargain Buy – Bernd Leno (£5.0m)

LEFT FIELD SELECTION - Leno could be a differential in the coming weeks

With an eye on that tricky GW29, Bernd Leno could be a man to bring in, especially as Arsenal face low-scoring Burnley this week.

Leno already has more clean sheets this season than he managed in either of the past two, showing that Arsenal have improved their defence.


With one eye on that devilish GW29, these two are the men to bolster your defence.

Star Signing – Aaron Cresswell (£5.8m)

TOP OF THE CLASS - Cresswell leads the way for defenders this season

An ever-present in the West Ham side this season, Aaron Cresswell has racked up 121 points so far this season making him the best defender on FPL.

West Ham face the unpredictable Leeds on Monday night, and are also one of the eight teams playing in GW29.

Bargain Buy – Stuart Dallas (£5.0m)

MR CONSISTENT - Dallas is a permanent fixture in the Leeds XI

This season’s John Lundstram (if you know, you know). Stuart Dallas is an FPL must-have as he is always in Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Leeds have a couple of tricky ties against West Ham and Chelsea coming up, but Dallas has picked up points consistently and is great value for money.


Manchester City having a double game week makes things difficult, as you just never know who is going to play. We recommend keeping things simple.

Star Signing – Raheem Sterling (£11.6m)

BIG POINTS - Sterling has the potential for some serious points in GW27

There is a chance that Raheem Sterling will play two games this week, but one of them will be in the Manchester derby.

Sterling could then face Southampton, and with a trip to Fulham in GW28 there are points to be had here.

Bargain Buy – Bukayo Saka (£5.2m)

YOUNG GUNNER - Saka has been a bright spot in a tough season for Arsenal

At just £5.2m, Bukayo Saka is an absolute bargain. The Arsenal youngster has been a key man in their upturn in fortunes and faces Burnley in GW27.

Leeds’ Jack Harrison is another budget alternative, and like Saka will feature in GW29.


We can’t stress enough, keep an eye on GW29. With that in mind, there are some key men you need in your FPL side this week.

Star Signing – Harry Kane (£11.1m)

LETHAL FINISHER - Kane always performs in the London derbies

It is that man again, Harry Kane. If you brought him in last week then well played.

Kane faces Crystal Palace this week before the North London derby in GW28. With his record in London derbies, we are expecting some big points hauls.

Bargain Buy – Patrick Bamford (£6.8m)

OUT OF NOWHERE - Bamford is one of the surprise packages this season

Why go rogue when you can recommend the two highest scoring strikers? Yes, these tips may be obvious but if you don’t have these two strikers get them in.

Patrick Bamford has racked up 142 points so far this season, and more than half of the FPL managers already have him in their side.
