Fantasy Premier League tips: Who to buy in FPL double gameweek 29
Liverpool, Brighton, Chelsea and Manchester United are just some of the 12 teams playing twice with the deadline set for Saturday at 11am BST.
There’s a lot to think about – not least with doubts from Erling Haaland and Marcus Rashford – so here are our tips for maximizing your points.
Mohammad Salah – Liverpool – £12.8m
The Egyptian has been one of the FPL’s most tentative players this year, but Liverpool’s run-in should have managers standing up and noticing the game’s most expensive player. Salah may have some tough games, but Salah has six goals and three assists against Manchester City in the Premier League, with four and two in 11 against Chelsea.
Kaoru Mitoma – Brighton – £5.5million
After scoring for Japan in midweek, Mitoma returned home with plenty of rest ahead of games against Brentford and Bournemouth. This may be one of the last chances to invest in the Seagulls given their next three game weeks are at Tottenham, Chelsea and then blank.
James Maddison – Leicester – £8.2m
Confidence will be high for Maddison as he heads to Crystal Palace for a huge relegation showdown against a side that may well struggle after the return of Roy Hodgson, ahead of a visit from leaky Aston Villa.
Kai Havertz – Chelsea – £7.6m
Both of Havertz’s games this weekend come at home, against Villa and Liverpool, with five of his seven Premier League goals this year at Stamford Bridge. He should also be recovered from the flu to figure.
