Victor Lindelof – £4.1m


The Swede has deputised well for the injured Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez, despite regular centre-back partner changes.

Erik ten Hag gave his players time off after their defeat to West Ham on Sunday for much-needed rest, with United playing more than any other side in Europe this season.

Expect a rejuvenated United to keep a clean sheet against Wolves (as they did in the reverse fixture), with Lindelof likely to be heavily involved.

Alexis Mac Allister – £5.5m

Two utterly contrasting performances and results from Brighton against Manchester United and Everton last week, but the one constant was an Alexis Mac Allister goal.

Brighton double again this week, and the Argentine averages nearly three shots per game, giving hope that he should improve on his nine goals already this season in GW36 across two fixtures.

Martin Odegaard – £6.7m

Speaking of consistent goals, Arsenal’s captain has kept his side in title contention with two stellar performances and a host of FPL points against Chelsea and Newcastle.

The Norwegian put all three of his shots on target against Newcastle, scoring one and driving his side to victory.

With Forest and Wolves still to play, expect Odegaard to continue inspiring his team and, of course, continue scoring FPL points for a very reasonable £6.7m.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – £7.6m

For the second week running, Trent Alexander-Arnold is an essential pick for your FPL team.

He continued his remarkable recent consistency with a clean sheet and seven points against Brentford.

Such is his quality, his assists are in no way linked to his xA (registering two assists from 0.29 xA).

Instead, you should focus only on Trent’s upcoming opponents for reassurance – with Leicester and all-but-down Southampton left to play, there’s plenty of potential for big scores.

Wilfried Gnonto – £4.7m

Leeds’ dynamic young forward is back in our picks despite a tough GW36 fixture against Newcastle.

The winger grabbed Leeds’ only goal in their thrashing at Bournemouth in GW34 and has squeezed two goals and four assists from 1.8 xG and 2.0 xA.


Newcastle, West Ham and Spurs await Leeds in their final three games, with ample opportunity there to get on the scoresheet under Sam Allardyce’s stewardship.
