The final month of the Premier League season brings a number of tough selection decisions for Fantasy Premier League managers who will be desperate to secure points from as many players as possible.
It’s squeaky bum time in the last four game weeks as managers know every single point can make a big difference in the final FPL standings or mini-leagues.
Therefore, The FootballCastle brings you all the tips to consider ahead of the Fantasy Premier League game week 35 deadline at 13:30 BST on Saturday, 6 May 2023.
Jason Steele (£4.0m)
The Brighton ‘keeper has settled into his starting role and earned another clean sheet against Manchester United to make it 25 total points over the last three games. Steele has five clean sheets, an assist and a penalty save in his nine games since winning the number-one shirt and he still has two double game weeks this season.
Emiliano Martínez (£5.0m)
Man United stopped Aston Villa’s unbeaten run at ten as Martínez kept seven clean sheets in that run. After 64 FPL points in his last 11 games, Wolves in GW35 is a good fixture to get more points on the board.
Pervis Estupiñán (£4.9m)
The full-back is the most-bought defender in GW35 as Brighton welcome Everton who have failed to register a goal in two of their last three away games.
After an assist and two clean sheets in his last two matches, the Ecuadorian is understandably in demand for managers who want to profit from the Seagulls with European football to play for.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m)
A new role has worked wonders for the full-back-cum-midfielder who has registered six clean sheets and an assist in his last six outings, earning 35 points.
Alexander-Arnold offers huge all-round potential against Brentford given Liverpool’s improved attacking fortunes.
Marcus Rashford (£7.2m)
The Manchester United star is the most-bought midfielder in GW35 after a goal, two assists and a clean sheet in his last three games. Rashford has 20 FPL points in that time and he is set for many more points in the coming fixtures, with another DGW still to come.
Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)
Salah now has six goals in his previous six games, gathering 46 points as Liverpool’s form improved. The Egyptian has recorded 200 FPL points for the sixth successive season and hosts Brentford having scored in seven consecutive home matches.
Morgan Gibbs-White (£5.5m)
The Nottingham Forest playmaker has collected 78 points from home games this season and he has two goals with as many assists in his last three games.
Gibbs-White would be key in the crucial home encounter with relegation rivals Southampton and you can expect a few returns before the season ends.
Kaoru Mitoma (£5.6m)
Despite five successive blanks, Brighton host Everton who have conceded 14 times in seven away games under Sean Dyche.
After seven unreplied goals in their home games in GW34, Brighton can look forward to another positive result as Mitoma tries to get back within the FPL hauls.
Joelinton’s excellent recent form has gone under the radar and his 2.4% of owners won’t want you to know about his four goals and two assists in the last six appearances.
Newcastle welcome Arsenal who have struggled in defence with eight goals conceded in their last three away matches and the Brazilian can maintain his strong run in front of goal.
Son Heung-min (£11.5m)
Despite a poor season by his own standards, Son welcomes Crystal Palace in his best form of the season after scoring four and supplying an assist in his last five matches for 35 FPL points.
The South Korean has also never blanked in a home match against the Eagles as he averages 9.7 points per match after six goals and an assist in six meetings.
Julio Enciso (£4.6m)
Owned by only 1.3% of FPL managers, the youngster has two goals and two assists in the last six games as his stock rises in the Brighton first 11.
Enciso has deputized in the absence of Evan Ferguson and he could prove a valuable asset at the business end of the season.
Julián Álvarez (£6.0m)
The Argentinian’s fortunes have risen in recent weeks as Man City progressed into the UEFA Champions League semifinals. Álvarez is worth the risk as Pep Guardiola expectedly rotates ahead of the cup game next week.
The striker is a reliable option having delivered double-figure returns in three of his last four starts, including three goals and two assists in his last six appearances.
Jamie Vardy (£9.1m)
Vardy has been a huge influence since Dean Smith took over as he registered two goals and an assist in successive games, while his return to form could prove decisive in the season’s run-in.
GW35’s fixture against Fulham looks good for the Leicester City striker and his 2.0% ownership could supply crucial late-season differential points
Callum Wilson (£7.0m)
The most-bought player in GW35 is hot commodity at the moment after scoring twice off the bench against Southampton. Despite starting only two of the last seven matches, Wilson has eight goals and one assist as he is the top-scoring FPL forward in that period with 54 points.
The Newcastle striker is well-placed to continue his prolific run after attacking returns in four of his last five appearances off the bench. GW35 opponents Arsenal have conceded eight goals in their last three away games.
Dominic Solanke (£5.6m)
After four wins in their last five matches, Solanke has contributed two goals, three assists and 30 points in their last four.
Chelsea are up next having lost six successive matches under Frank Lampard.
