The biggest double game week of the Fantasy Premier League campaign precedes a regular schedule with only nine games remaining this season for most teams.
Game Week 30 sees Arsenal travel to Liverpool amidst a crunch title race while Southampton vs Manchester City and Leicester City vs Bournemouth hold the most likelihood of a high-scoring affair. FPL managers will be keen to secure the best players that can deliver vital points for their mini-leagues.
Therefore, the FootballCastle provides some of the best tips you will need in game week 30, ahead of the deadline at 11:00 BST on Saturday, 8 April, 2023.
Emiliano Martinez (£4.9m)
The World Cup winner is a smart goalkeeping option during an impressive run of form that has seen four clean sheets for 40 Fantasy Premier League points in his last six matches.
Having conceded only twice in that run, Martinez hauled 14 points in Double Game Week 29 and another shutout could be forthcoming when they face Nottingham Forest who have a meagre five away goals all season.
Luke Shaw (£5.2m)
Manchester United will be looking to rediscover their best form when they welcome Everton in GW30, meanwhile, Luke Shaw has been a reliable source of points at home.
The left-back has delivered 42 points in seven Old Trafford outings since the World Cup with a goal, an assist and four clean sheets. Additionally, Everton have only scored 10 goals in 14 away games this season, raising Shaw’s clean sheet potential
Ben Chilwell (£6.0m)
Chilwell possesses various routes to returns given his huge attacking qualities and reliable set-piece deliveries. The left-back has a goal, an assist and two clean sheets in the last five matches which earned him 28 points.
Despite the dramatic managerial turnover at Chelsea this week, the Blues will be aiming for back-to-back clean sheets when they travel to Wolves for Frank Lampard’s return.
Kieran Trippier (£6.1m)
After a patchy run of form, the game’s top-ranked defender has pulled up two assists and a clean sheet in the last four games, with his 14 points in DGW29 being his first double-digit returns since the World Cup.
Trippier is an essential FPL pick this season as he is 47 points behind Andy Robertson’s (213) all-time FPL record points tally from a defender in a single campaign, with 11 games to go.
Newcastle United’s right-back faces Brentford with form and momentum on his side.
Tyrone Mings (£4.4m)
The Aston Villa defender is a differential option who is outperforming his prospects with excellent form which reads four clean sheets and an assist from his last six games.
Mings features in only 7.0% of squads and you could gain massively from the upcoming home game against Nottingham Forest who are shy away from home.
Kaoru Mitoma (£5.6m)
The Brighton midfielder is playing with confidence after five consecutive returns with two goals, four assists and three clean sheets.
Mitoma is now up to 11 goal contributions in his last 12 Premier League games and Tottenham would have to beware of the Japanese in GW30.
James Maddison (£8.3m)
Leicester City’s jewel has nine goals with six assists this season and he is sought after in one of the best fixtures of GW30 against Bournemouth who are the league’s leakiest defence.
Despite their woes, Maddison is at the forefront of an attacking side and thus most likely to get returns from this game given he also takes their set-pieces.
Jack Harrison (£5.7m)
The winger is enjoying a good upturn of form under Javi Gracia with three goals and two assists in his last six games. Harrison has earned 38 FPL points in that time and offers a route to attacking returns at home to Crystal Palace.
Jack Grealish (£6.8m)
Grealish has become a vital member of Manchester City’s starting line-up this season and he proved so with a goal and assist against Liverpool for a season-high tally of 12 FPL points. Southampton and Leicester City in the upcoming games could be part of a strong run.
After providing three goals and six assists in 14 appearances since the World Cup, the forward’s 66 total points are only bettered by Erling Haaland (80). The City number 10 is thriving on the left side of the attack, and Phil Foden’s recent Appendix surgery rubberstamps his starting place over the coming weeks.
Eberechi Eze (£5.4m)
The Crystal Palace attacking midfielder was restored to the starting lineup in Roy Hodgson’s managerial return and provided an assist in the late win over Leicester City.
Eze was brilliant in a central midfield role and created three chances with five shots on goal, providing optimism for what is to come. Leeds in GW30 continues a run of games against five of the eight teams below them in the league standings.
Mohamed Salah (£12.8m)
League leaders Arsenal visit Anfield to face an underwhelming Liverpool side, yet it could well be raining goals come Sunday afternoon.
Salah remains the Reds’ top marksman with five goals and three assists in his last eight matches. His goal and assist threat as well as penalty duties make him a reliable points source regardless of his team’s inconsistencies.
Ollie Watkins (£7.5m)
Arguably the most in-form player in the Premier League netted in both Double game week 29 fixtures to extend his goalscoring streak to six away games. Watkins has now delivered 13 goal contributions in 15 appearances under Unai Emery.
The Aston Villa striker has eight goals and two assists for 72 FPL points across his last ten games, much higher than Haaland’s 59 points across his last ten. Furthermore, GW30 visitors Nottingham Forest have conceded at least twice in their last four away games.
Erling Haaland (£12.0m)
The Norwegian has returned to full training ahead of their trip to bottom-side Southampton so he will understandably be in high demand for GW30.
The Saints have conceded the most goals at home and with Haaland back in action, City will be keen to get him firing in the race against Arsenal.
Harry Kane (£11.7m)
Kane has been one of the most consistent players this season with the highest goal involvement (53%) in the league and only seven blanks in his 29 league games.
The Tottenham striker has multiple routes to attacking returns and is also on penalties, Brighton would be very lucky to avoid the inevitable marksman on Saturday.
