Fantasy Premier League enters one of its most tricky game weeks of the season with some teams playing twice and others not at all.

Game week 25 is set to be a real test for Fantasy Premier League managers who will be tempted to use a free hit chip to get many Arsenal, Liverpool, Wolves and Everton players as Manchester United, Newcastle, Brentford and Brighton are all out of action on the Carabao Cup final weekend.

There is an exciting game week ahead, and FootballCastle provides reliable tips for Double Gameweek 25 ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline.


Aaron Ramsdale (£4.9m)

The Arsenal goalkeeper is one of the top picks in double game week 25 when he faces Leicester City and Everton. 

Ramsdale also faces Bournemouth, Fulham and Crystal Palace thereafter as he sits second for clean sheets after Newcastle’s Nick Pope (12).

Jordan Pickford (£4.4m)

The Everton man also has a double game week 25 off the back of clean sheets in his last two home games. 

He will hope to keep up that run in a home meeting with Aston Villa even though his chances of another shutout at Arsenal are far less, he will rack up some save points as he sits third for saves among goalkeepers.


Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) 

After points returns in consecutive outings, the full-back’s underlying numbers have also seen a big jump.

Alexander-Arnold has created a team-high five chances and 20 crosses to go with two clean sheets on the bounce.

James Tarkowski (£4.3m) 

No player has managed more shots than his five since Sean Dyche took charge at Everton as he is benefitting from a much more organised team which will secure many clean sheets in the rest of the season.

Tarkowski has played a big part in two clean sheets in the last three matches and is well worth another in DGW25.


Martin Ødegaard (£7.0m)

The Arsenal captain is having his best season with an impressive eight goals and seven assists so far.

Ødegaard is the third-highest-scoring midfielder in the game and should get around 90 minutes each against Leicester and Everton as the Gunners’ best value attacker. 

Jarrod Bowen (£8.0m) 

Bowen faces Nottingham Forest on the back of 21 points in his last two home outings against Everton and Chelsea.

The West Ham man has registered five of his eight goal involvements this season since the GW17 restart.

Dwight McNeil (£5.1m) 

Dwight McNeil is Everton’s leader for final-third touches (77), crosses (31) and big chances created (three) in the last three matches as the main creative outlet under his former Bunley mentor, Sean Dyche.

The winger’s dangerous deliveries into the box will be a key attacking weapon in the coming weeks so get ahead of the curve by bringing him in DGW25.

Bukayo Saka (£8.4m)

The winger continues to pick up points after five goals and two assists in nine games since the restart. Arsenal take on Leicester and Everton with Saka as one of the best options for returns in DGW25.

Regardless of the Arsenal result, Saka is capable of a goal contribution hence he can be trusted with the captaincy.  

Jack Grealish (£6.8m)

Manchester City’s attacking midfielder has been overlooked despite seven goal involvements since the league’s restart, proving his potential for differential returns.

Grealish has been benched only once since the GW17 restart and can continue his run of three straight attacking returns against Bournemouth in GW25.

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m)

With ‘only’ eight goals and six assists so far, Salah is having his worst season in a Liverpool shirt but he seems to be getting into his stride with two goals and as many assists in his last three games in all competitions.

Liverpool come up against Crystal Palace and Wolves in DGW25 with their Egyptian King back in among the goals.

Cody Gakpo (£7.8m) 

The Dutchman looks to be a great differential with his 4.8 per cent ownership after back-to-back goals. Gakpo has claimed 14 points in his last two games and faces Palace with one clean sheet in seven games while Wolves also visit after only one away clean sheet this season.


Ollie Watkins (£7.2m)

Aston Villa’s marksman has four goals and an assist in his last four games with the continuity of good fixtures to come. After facing Everton in GW25, Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Bournemouth represent a chance for Watkins to get a solid run of goals together. 

Darwin Núñez (£8.7m)

The Uruguayan looks to be entering a strong run of form consolidated by that well-taken goal against Real Madrid in midweek to make it a goal or assist in three successive games. 

Núñez registered five points each in his last two games and should add some more against Palace and Wolves especially considering a budding linkup with Mo Salah

Harry Kane (£11.8m)

Tottenham’s main man has seven goal contributions in the last seven games and the club’s record goalscorer is a reliable captaincy option amidst loss of form with other heavy hitters.

Erling Haaland (£12.2m)

Despite missing two big chances and blanking away at Nottingham Forest, Haaland should remain in your first XI against Bournemouth.

You are much safer betting on the big Norwegian to bounce back with goals in GW25.
