It’s double game-week season in Fantasy Premier League once again as four teams have two fixtures in Gameweek 20. Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Crystal Palace will all play on two occasions on this matchday, giving some of the most popular players in the game including Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, and Marcus Rashford a FPL double-gameweek.
Erling Haaland is a must-have for all FPL players this Gameweek, but the real question is which other two Manchester City players should Fantasy Premier League managers own. If he is affordable, Kevin de Bruyne is the best bet, but other attractive options include Phil Foden or 18-year-old Rico Lewis, who costs just 3.9 million and has featured in each of City’s three Premier League games after the winter break.
Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw are the two standout options for Manchester United for their double-gameweek. The English midfielder is in the form of his life, recording 27 points and 3 goals in his last 3 appearances. Shaw has also scored 32 points since the World Cup break and is part of a burgeoning Manchester United defence that have conceded just one goal in their past four matches.
Finding a third Manchester United player is tricky, but Anthony Martial could be the best option, considering the Frenchman has been back to full fitness since the season resumed.
Tottenham have a tough double gameweek against the two best teams in the country – Manchester City and Arsenal – from an FPL perspective. The only player worth earning for this double is Harry Kane, who has 15 goals and 127 points in Fantasy Premier League this season.

There is only one real captaincy option this week, Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian striker has been the best player in FPL in the 2022/23 season and has two fixtures in Gameweek 20, making him an automatic lock for the armband. Fantasy Premier League managers can even consider triple captaining the Manchester City striker this weekend, considering his explosive potential over two matches.
Shivaan’s FPL Team Selection for GW20: Darwin Nunez and Joao Cancelo for Harry Kane and Rico Lewis, Erling Haaland captain.
I already have four double gameweek players in my side for this week, and the plan is to bring in one or two before the deadline. Anthony Martial was my number one priority, but the Frenchman may be a doubt for United’s home fixture against City due to a slight knock.
Another option I may consider is removing Darwin Nunez for Harry Kane, which will be funded by exchanging Joao Cancelo for Manchester City youngster Rico Lewis.
As for the captaincy, Erling Haaland gets the armband. Best of luck for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 20!
