Erling Haaland and Phil Foden

A regular Fantasy Premier League schedule is back in Game Week 27 as it comes in between a blank last time out and a double Game Week 28. Only two clubs face double Game Weeks next week and there is a chance to rake in a good points haul before the disruptions. 

The FootballCastle is back with our Fantasy Premier League preview for Game Week 27 where you can find the most essential tips. Take note of these changes that must be made to your team before the deadline on Saturday, March 2 at 1:30 PM GMT.


Guglielmo Vicario (£5.3m)

Despite the lack of clean sheets recently, Tottenham’s shot-stopper has a number of good fixtures over the coming weeks, starting with the visit of Crystal Palace who have not scored more than once in six of their last seven away games.

Emiliano Martinez (£5.3m)

The Aston Villa goalkeeper has had a shut-out in two of his last three away games which means he will be looking for a decent haul in Game Week 27.

Luton Town have lost some of their home form in recent weeks and Villa will be ready to pounce.


Jakub Kiwior (£4.3m) 

The Arsenal man has replaced the injured Oleksandr Zinchenko with minimal fuss as he produced a goal, two assists and two clean sheets in the last four games.

Kiwior is the Gunners’ top-scoring defender in FPL since GW23 when he earned 23 points, and his bargain price draws bigger appeal in the visit to Sheffield United who have found the net only once in their last four matches.

Fabian Schär (£5.4m)

Newcastle may have only won two of their last five matches but Schär is an automatic starter who has bagged three goals and an assist in that time. 

The Magpies have Wolves and Chelsea up next so their Swiss defender can continue his rich vein of attacking form. 

Marcos Senesi (£4.5m) 

Senesi has been Bournemouth’s standout defender in FPL this season with his three goals being the highest from anyone in his position alongside two assists. 

The Cherries now face Burnley in GW27 before completing the trio of all promoted sides against Sheffield and Luton in DGW28. Senesi can keep a couple of clean sheets while adding to his attacking tally during this run. 


Bukayo Saka (£9.2m) 

Is he world class or not? The Arsenal ace stands out as a captaincy candidate for GW27 after delivering four double-digit hauls in his last five games. 

Bukayo Saka

Having netted seven goals in that time, Saka should keep up his scintillating form against bottom-of-the-league Sheffield United.

Phil Foden (£8.1m)

Foden has produced 39 FPL points since GW23 and he is now a sure starter which helps his FPL appeal. Although Manchester City face Manchester United and Liverpool over the next two GWs, Foden has hit 23 shots in the last four Game Weeks and scored in the Derby earlier this season. 

Pascal Groß (£6.5m) 

The ever-reliable German has delivered five attacking returns in the last four GWs with a goal, four assists and 11 bonus points thanks to his creativity and set-pieces. 

GW27 opponents Fulham are particularly weak at corners and free-kicks which would please Groß, a budget differential with less than ten per cent ownership.

Leon Bailey (£5.6m) 

Bailey has registered two goals and three assists for 30 FPL points in the last five GWs and he next faces Luton who have conceded 19 goals in the last five matches in all competitions. 

The Aston Villa man offers lots of attacking threat and he can be relied upon due to having a fixture in blank Game Week 29.

Jarrod Bowen (£7.7m) 

West Ham’s marksman has suddenly become a key consideration after his hat-trick last time out against Brentford. 

Bowen’s prospects are further helped by the fact that he now faces Everton and Burnley while he is scheduled to take part in BGW29. 


Dominic Solanke (£7.1m)

The most-bought player ahead of GW27 is popular because of the game against Burnley as well as a double Game Week at home to Sheffield United and Luton Town. 

Solanke is on 128 FPL points this season and should add to his tally over the coming weeks. 

Erling Haaland (£14.5m)

Haaland is the go-to captain pick having scored five in midweek and he looks to be getting into the goalscoring groove after his injury spell.

The Man City striker enjoys the derby games and he would be aiming to better his 16 FPL points from the reverse fixture against Man Utd.

Alexander Isak (£7.5m) 

The Swede returned from injury at Arsenal and has eyes on getting back to top form against Wolves in GW27. Isak is Newcastle’s most potent player so he should start with the aim of punishing a defence that has only two clean sheets from 13 away matches in 2023/24.

Rodrigo Muniz (£4.4m) 

Muniz has scored four goals and collected 31 points since replacing the injured Raul Jimenez in GW23. Fulham now have an encouraging run of upcoming games from an attacking perspective while they also face Tottenham in BGW29. 

The Brazilian can continue to enjoy this patch of form as his bargain price has so far been caught on by only 1.9 per cent of FPL managers. 

Ollie Watkins (£8.9m)

Aston Villa’s frontman has delivered 29 goal involvements in just 26 appearances this term while he has four goals and four assists in as many games when he also hauled 42 points. 

Luton Town will be wary of facing the in-form Watkins having been without a clean sheet in their last four games, conceding 12 goals in that time.
