FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 25


Two teams have a Double Gameweek:

Leeds: Wolves (A), Southampton (H)

Southampton: Chelsea (H), Leeds (A)


Top FPL player targets ahead of the upcoming Gameweek:

GK: Ederson (MCI, GK, £6.1mil, 9.2% ownership)

DEF: Stuart Dallas (LEE, DEF, £4.9mil, 19.3% ownership)

MID: Harvey Barnes (LEI, MID, £6.8mil, 8.0% ownership)

FWD: Patrick Bamford (LEE, FWD, £6.9mil, 55.6% ownership)


Who are the teams to look out for and avoid?:

Leeds (Watch): One of the two teams in the Double Gameweek, with games against an out-of-sorts Wolves and Southampton. Leeds can turn it on, or not, but fingers crossed Bamford’s form can carry them out with a few fantasy points.


Southampton (Watch & Avoid): The Saints are also in the Double Gameweek, but they have a much tougher time of things. Playing a resurgent Chelsea isn’t great, and then they must travel to Leeds, which puts a grain of doubt over their ability to produce fantasy points. The only glimmer of hope is in the form of Danny Ings who’s natural goalscoring ability could surprise a few people/


Man City (Watch): The Citizens tend to dominate this fixture, especially at the Emirates. After watching City dominate their Double Gameweek, it is clear they are steamrolling every single club in the league. I believe Bernardo Silva is the reason why as when City were dominating a few years ago, he was the reason, and now that he is back in the team he is setting the pace, and he also got the recognition he deserved in the team with a huge haul of points against Everton in midweek.


Brighton (Watch): This weekend is the M23 Derby, which is one of my favourites in the league just because how bizarre it is, and because the games tend to be really good entertainment. I can see Brighton winning this fixture because Palace are back to their ways of struggling to find a goal in games.

Gameweek 25 – FPL Differential Picks:

WOL/LEE: Raphinha (LEE, MID, £5.4mil, 5.7% ownership)

SOU/CHE: Marco Alonso (CHE, DEF, £5.7mil, 3.3% ownership)

BUR/WBA: Jay Rodriguez (BUR, FWD, £5.8mil, 0.5% ownership)

LIV/EVE: Ozan Kabak (LIV, DEF, £5.0mil, 0.2% ownership)

FUL/SHU: Josh Maja (FUL, FWD, £5.5mil, 0.6% ownership)

WHU/TOT: Jesse Lingard (WHU, MID, £6.0mil, 2.7% ownership)

AVL/LEI: Çaglar Söyüncü (LEI, DEF, £5.3mil, 2.8% ownership)

ARS/MCI: Bernardo Silva (MCI, MID, £7.4mil, 1.1% ownership)

MUN/NEW: David de Gea (MUN, GK, £5.3mil, 4.9% ownership)

BHA/CRY: Neal Maupay (BHA, FWD, £6.1mil, 3.0% ownership)

LEE/SOU: Raphinha (LEE, MID, £5.4mil, 5.7% ownership)


Differential Captain: Raphinha (Leeds)

Leeds are the standout team in this Double Gameweek, and the best differential from that team is the overlooked Brazilian winger, Raphinha. Notching an impressive five consecutive returns including four assists, and a loan goal against Leeds away win against Everton, the winger has caught the attention of Top Six clubs. Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked already for a summer move, and it isn’t hard to see why after a breakthrough year for the Brazilian. The form is there, as are the fixtures, and when a player gets returns no matter the fixtures you can’t think too hard about it.

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 25


Two teams have a Double Gameweek:

Leeds: Wolves (A), Southampton (H)

Southampton: Chelsea (H), Leeds (A)


Top FPL player targets ahead of the upcoming Gameweek:

If you’ve had your eye on this Gameweek for a while, you’ve probably already got Danny Ings (SOU) and Patrick Bamford (LEE) on the radar. The real dilemma is how to get the best out of other options.


Jack Harrison (LEE) has scored in three of the last five games, whilst Raphinha has returns in five consecutive games – these are the players you need to consider as fourth and fifth midfield picks this week to buffer up attacking options. James Ward-Prowse (SOU) might be worth a set-piece too, whilst I’m avoiding defenders in their entirety.


Elsewhere, if you’re planning on playing your Wildcard, Brighton, Man United and Liverpool have some good games to bank on, though I’m refusing to look more than one week ahead.


Who are the teams to look out for and avoid?:

Arsenal (avoid): Arsenal tend to get whipped in the behind by Man City in this fixture. City are playing good football and should wrap up an impressive win ahead of their Champions League encounter with Gladbach next week. Expect City to tweak their team too as they have a serious chance at winning the UCL this season, with many ‘first choice’ players preferred in Champions League ties.


Liverpool (watch): A good run of winnable games are coming up for The Reds, though bare caution as the Champions lost to both Burnley and Brighton at home. Regardless of those losses, Mo Salah is in peachy form and worthy of setting and forgetting in this run – barring some truly terrible form or an injury, Salah also looks a lock for the Golden Boot. Klopp won’t rotate him, even in Champions League weeks, which will go on for a little longer after a confident display in Budapest against Leipzig.


West Ham & Spurs (Cautious): The evidence of a lacklustre and Europa League fatigued Spurs side all hints at a close score between Mourinho and Moyes. West Ham will be happy with a point to deny their fellow London side a chance to close the gap on UCL qualification. I still fancy Harry Kane to nab a goal though.


Brighton & Palace (Cautious): Two lower-mid teams often have a way of negating each other and I’m not jumping on the hype that Brighton have turned a corner and are all of a sudden a defensive beast after a 0-0 against a placid Aston Villa outfit.


Leicester (Watch): Villa’s form is plateauing gradually as the season wears on, which is understandable given their good early-season run. Leicester are a well-drilled beast and can pick teams off at the right time. Brendan Rodgers should find a way in this one.


Newcastle (Avoid): The Toon just do not have the squad to compete against Big Six teams, even without the injuries. United also just won 4-0 against Sociedad so the pressure is off.

Gameweek 25 - FPL Captaincy Picks:

Essential: Patrick Bamford (LEE)

Alternative: Danny Ings (SOU)

Differential: Jack Harrison (LEE)


It’s a Double Gameweek featuring just two team – you don’t have to be original. Leeds have a good set of games to score some goals, whilst the Saints have a reliable scorer in Danny Ings. Elsewhere, Mo Salah and Bruno Fernandes have good fixtures to bank on if you want to pick a template high-value player.


Other Gameweek Comments:

There’s a lot of Double Gameweek 26 noise on Twitter right now – don’t make any moves until it is confirmed, if at all.
