Goalkeepers

Three of the top four are not playing this week, so it is not the obvious choices that make up our team.

Star Signing – Alisson (£5.9)

BACK IN IT - Liverpool's season could end on a high

Yes, Alisson is expensive, but he can be a difference-maker in the final few matches with just 6.3% of managers selecting him in their sides.

Liverpool play West Brom, Burnley, and Crystal Palace in their final three games and could take maximum points from those fixtures as they hunt European football.

Bargain Buy – Jordan Pickford (£4.8)

NUMBER ONE - Pickford will likely start for England at the EUROs

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton side is still hunting a Champions League spot, and Jordan Pickford could be an astute purchase in FPL.

Everton play bottom of the league and goal-shy Sheffield United in GW36 before hosting Wolves, so the Toffees and Pickford could pick up some points.

Defenders

Once more we are backing Liverpool to finish the season strong and secure European football for next year.

Star Signing – Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6)

EXPERT CROSSER - TAA is one of the best right-backs in the world

Trent Alexander-Arnold has picked up 49 points from his last six matches, averaging 8.2 points per game.

Alexander-Arnold is expensive, but he could give you a handy points boost in the final three games.

Bargain Buy – Stuart Dallas (£5.2)

TOP PICK - Dallas is simply the must-have defender on FPL this season

Leeds could be in for a bright end to the season with some favourable fixtures, and Stuart Dallas is the obvious candidate for your defence.

The highest-point scoring defender this season, you really should have Dallas in your team.

Midfielders

Spurs are our surprise tip for this week despite their indifferent form, with Heung-Min Son and Gareth Bale both in form.

Star Signing – Heung-Min Son (£9.5)

CLINICAL - Son is one of the best finishers in the league

With three goals in three games, Heung-Min Son is back in form and could be in for more points this week against Wolves.

Spurs play Aston Villa and Leicester in their final two games and will be relying on their frontmen to fire them into Europe next season.

Bargain Buy – Stuart Armstrong (£5.5)

ENGINE - Armstrong is a driving force in the Saints midfield

Southampton midfielder Stuart Armstrong has picked up a couple of assists in his last few games and is our bargain buy for GW36.

The Scottish international faces Fulham this week who have just had their relegation from the Premier League confirmed after losing to Burnley on Monday.

Forwards

Sheffield United and West Brom have the worst defensive records in the league this season, so we often look at them to see which forwards to select on FPL.

Star Signing – Harry Kane (£11.8)

CLOSING THE GAP - Kane sits second in total FPL points behind Bruno

Spurs and England superstar Harry Kane is going through something of a goal-drought having not found the net in three games.

Kane has not gone longer than three games without a goal this season, so we are backing him to score against Wolves this week.

Bargain Buy – Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6)

LEADING THE LINE - DCL is the perfect number 9

Dominic Calvert-Lewin now has two goals in two games and could continue that form against Sheffield United.

Everton have put themselves in with a chance of Champions League football next season and DCL could be the man to fire them into Europe’s elite competition.
