Game-Week 32 sees the return of the double game week as Tottenham Hotspur face both Everton and Southampton ahead of the League Cup final. Tripling up on Tottenham assets seems like the best way to go to take advantage of this fixture switch despite their indifferent league form under Mourinho. Amongst other teams, Leicester and Arsenal also have a nice run of fixtures in the next few weeks and managers should look to target the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho to catch up with their mini-league rivals in the last 7 weeks of the season.
That being said, here are our FPL picks for Game-Week 32:
GK: Edouard Mendy (CHE) – £5.2m
Despite conceding in the last two consecutive weeks, Chelsea remains the best option for clean-sheets in terms of their underlying numbers and they come up against a Brighton side this week that have struggled with their finishing throughout the season.
DEF: Rob Holding (ARS) – £4.2m
Rob Holding has played in all 9 games in the Premier League that Arsenal have kept a clean sheet and earned 8 points last time out against Sheffield United. At £4.2m Holding is a great budget option in defence that acts as an enabler for the rest of your squad.
DEF: Luke Shaw (MUN) – £5.3m
Shaw has emerged as the standout defensive option in recent weeks with 9 returns in his last 10 games and has a great fixture against Burnley at home at the weekend.
DEF: Sergio Reguilon (TOT) – £5.5m
Sergio Reguilon is the most attacking option in the Tottenham defence ahead of their two fixtures in game-week 32. Reguilon has 17 shots and 14 chances created this season and has the highest points ceiling amongst defensive options this week.
MID: Jesse Lingard (WHU) – £6.5m
Jesse Lingard just can’t stop scoring at the moment and has three double-digit returns in his last three weeks. Lingard already has incredibly high ownership with this sudden turn of form and has a favourable fixture this week against Newcastle.
MID: Heung-Min Son (TOT) – £9.5m
Son marked his return to the Tottenham starting XI with a goal against Manchester United and is a great option for the armband with his two fixtures in game-week 32.
MID: Bruno Fernandes (MUN) – £11.5m
Bruno Fernandes has underwhelmed in recent weeks in fantasy terms but is still the highest points scorer in the game and could deliver another double-digit haul at the weekend against a struggling Burnley outfit.
FWD: Diogo Jota (LIV) – £7.0m
Diogo Jota was rested for the Champions League game against Real Madrid on Wednesday which could guarantee him a start at the weekend against Leeds United. Jota continues to be the best value option in the game with his high points ceiling and has scored 3 League goals since his return from injury.
FWD: Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) – £6.0m
Kelechi Iheanacho is the most transferred in player this week after his exploits in recent games against West Ham and Sheffield United. The Nigerian international has 7 goals in his last 5 games and has two great fixtures at home in the next two weeks against West Brom and Crystal Palace.
FWD: Jamie Vardy (LEI) – £10.1m
Jamie Vardy bagged three assists and 13 points the last time Leicester faced a bottom three club at home and could be a great differential option this week against West Brom.
FWD: Harry Kane (TOT) – £11.7m
With Tottenham having two fixtures against Everton and Southampton this week, Kane is the closest thing to must-have and should be the number one priority for managers heading into this game week.
Captaincy this week is a no-brainer. Harry Kane has the most goal contributions in the game and has two fixtures this week, making him the obvious choice and also a Triple Captaincy candidate for those who still have that chip available.
