Fantasy Premier League

With less than a fortnight and three sets of fixtures to go, the Premier League 2020/21 campaign will be over. 

Man City have been crowned the Premier League champions meanwhile, Sheffield United, West Brom and Fulham have all been relegated.

The race for European qualification takes centre stage, with the final Champions League set to go down to the wire. 

The final blank gameweek of the Fantasy Premier League season is upon us (good riddance!) and caution, as ever, is the watchword for Game Week 36.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester United are all out of action alongside their heavily owned players. On the flipside; West Ham, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton are teams who would still be pushing for meaningful results this GW while the likes of Man City, Liverpool, Everton, Leeds and Aston Villa all enjoy favourable fixtures.

Ahead of the game week 36 deadline at 18:30 GMT on Friday 14 May. The best selections and FPL advice are of course available on The Football Castle.


Jordan Pickford(£4.8m)

In GW 35, Pickford picked up a crucial three points and a clean sheet against in-form West Ham, following it up with another shutout in the stalemate against Aston Villa. 

Facing relegated Sheffield, the England international will be brimming with confidence after three clean sheets in his last five games.


The Brazilian has kept 18 clean sheets and will likely win the golden glove award. He’s a safe option against Newcastle who have struggled to put the ball in the net, and ends the season against Brighton and Everton.


Trent Alexander-Arnold(£7.6m)

The full-back once again impressed in Liverpool’s first win at Old Trafford in seven years as he set up Roberto Firmino’s second of the night. 

Alexander-Arnold is fighting to impress Gareth Southgate for a realistic place in the European Championship squad and his attacking performances should continue his hot FPL form in lip-smacking fixtures against West Brom, Brunley and Crystal Palace.

Lucas Digne(£6.2m)

While visitors Sheffield have the worst attack with 18 goals in 35 Premier League games this season. Digne carries a threat going forward too, and should be supplying Calvert-Lewin.

The Frenchman is on set-pieces and has seven assists to his name this campaign.

Stuart Dallas(£5.3m)

Has registered the most FPL points for any defender(158) as he usually plays as an attacking midfielder, thus has produced eight goals and three assists plus 10 clean sheets.

Dallas is an all-around player who attacks and defends well. Pertinently, Leeds also have a favorable run to the finish, facing Burnley, Southampton, and West Brom.


Mo Salah (£12.7m) 

In what is the most inviting fixture of the gameweek, Mo Salah will face off in a game against a West Brom side that now has nothing to play for following their relegation last weekend

Having broken the 200-point mark for the fourth consecutive season, Salah is now level with Kane on 21 goals in the race for Golden Boot. West Brom have the worst defensive record having conceded 68 goals in 35 games, and have conceded three or more times on seven different occasions in the league this season.

Heung-Min Son(£9.5m)

Who now sits as the second highest-scoring midfielder this season (218 points) is enjoying the form of his life with 17 goals and 10 assists this season.

Son now has four goals and one assist in his last five games, a clear sign he is one of the huge benefactors since Ryan Mason’s appointment. He is also in prolific mood with 29 shots taken in the last three games.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) 

Man City assets have been off the radar for a while now due to all the double gameweeks and rotation amidst European fixtures. They are, however, front runners in blank GW 36 with little left of the season.

KDB faces a Newcastle side who have recorded just two clean sheets in their last 20 league games, and has a decent record against the Magpies with two goals and five assists in eight appearances.

Gylfi Sigurdsson(£6.9m)

Is one of Everton’s most reliable assets this season and will be responsible for taking their penalties and set-pieces against a struggling Sheffield United defence.

The Icelandic midfielder delivered two clean sheets in DGW 35 and could at least reproduce that should he pull a blank in attack.


Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) 

On course to cement his place in England’s Euros squad, Calvert-Lewin has rediscovered his early-season form with two goals in his last three games. That all bodes well for a meeting with the relegated Blades, who have conceded 11 times in their last five games.

Chris Wood(£6.4m)

The striker has been in clinical goal-scoring form since GW 27, hitting eight goals and three assists in eight appearances. 

The Kiwi has now hit double figures for goals in four consecutive seasons and his price range is hard to ignore at this stage of the season.

Harry Kane (£11.8m)

Despite having no goal contribution in his two league matches under Ryan Mason, it’s unthinkable to write the Englishman out given his world class attributes and 21 goals plus 13 assists. 

Kane is set to end up with either or both of the Golden Boot and Playmaker awards, and will look to continue his scoring form in the final three fixtures so he can go to the Euros with full confidence.
