fantasy premier league

The Fantasy Premier League campaign is spinning to a conclusion soon, and there are lots of movements still to be made in the Premier League table as well as FPL mini-leagues.

In Game week 36, Newcastle and Brighton will both play twice meaning there are many players to select from the Europe-chasing clubs. However, keep an eye out for the late-season gems who unexpectedly gather points as their teams make a late push up the table. 

The FootballCastle provides tips you can depend on, going into the Double Game Week 36 deadline on Saturday, May 13 at 11:00 BST.


David De Gea (£5.0m)

The Spaniard is joint-top in FPL having kept 10 clean sheets in home matches for Manchester United this season. De Gea can bounce back from consecutive away defeats against a Wolves side who have scored just 12 times in away matches.

Furthermore, the 32-year-old has one away fixture of the four games left this season so he can look forward to a few more shutouts. 


Pervis Estupiñán (£4.9m) 

The Brighton left-back possesses strong all-round potential despite tough Double Game week 36 fixtures against Arsenal and Newcastle. Estupiñán was his side’s best performer in DGW34 after an assist, two clean sheets and one bonus point earned him 16 points.

The Ecuadorian also has the volume of fixtures to keep delivering at both ends of the pitch.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m) 

Alexander-Arnold’s run of assists may have ended at four successive games but Liverpool’s two recent clean sheets have retained the defender’s all-round potential leading up to GW36 against Leicester City.  

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Six assists in his last seven games since moving into central midfield have brought a total of 42 points, and the 24-year-old can keep going for the remaining games of the campaign.

Kieran Trippier (£6.1m) 

The right-back has endured seven straight blanks but his 15 chances created are at least six more than any team-mate. Trippier’s 67 per cent ownership could have their patience rewarded soon with Double Gameweek 36 games against Leeds United and Brighton looking like the kind to ignite a return to top form.


Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m)

The World Cup winner has five fixtures in the final three game weeks left this season and has scored in each of his last two games.

Mac Allister is the most-bought midfielder in DGW36 and Brighton’s penalty-taker is assured of playing time as well as potential for returns against any opponent.

Mohamed Salah (£13.1m)

Salah has risen back to the top of the midfield leaderboard with 11 goals and two assists in his last 12 games. Indeed, the Liverpool marksman visits Leicester after successive double-figure returns and 56 points in his last seven matches.

The damaged Foxes conceded five last time out against Fulham to make it 12 goals let in since Dean Smith’s first game in GW31. Salah will surely be looking to add to his scoring run and Liverpool’s six-game winning streak in their late European charge.

A brilliant DGW36 captain despite having one fixture.

James Maddison (£7.9m)

The England international has registered one goal and three assists in each of his last three games to collect 17 points.

Most of Leicester’s survival hopes will rest on Maddison who will be keen to continue GW36 opponents Liverpool’s record of only four clean sheets in away matches all season.

Martin Ødegaard (£6.7m)

Martin Odegaard

Following back-to-back double-digit hauls, Ødegaard now has five goals in as many games when he is also averaging almost nine points per game.

While the Arsenal captain is trying to push his side back into title contention, GW36 opponents Brighton have claimed only two away clean sheets this season.

Riyad Mahrez (£7.3m)

The Algerian has four assists in the last three games and looks set to start if Pep Guardiola rotates his side in between their mammoth semifinal tie against Real Madrid.

Mahrez has registered 21 points in his last three matches and can prove a useful option in the final four games of the league campaign.

Joelinton (£6.0m)

The Brazilian has four goals and two assists in his last seven games amidst the high demand for Newcastle’s attack-minded players for their DGW63 matches against Leeds and Brighton.

The Whites have conceded 12 goals in their last three home matches while the Seagulls are susceptible to conceding away from home. 


Julian Alvarez (£6.0m)

The Argentine has secured double figures in three of his last five starts and having earned a place in the lineup recently, could be set for more hauls in the season’s run-in.

The midweek games against Madrid mean Alvarez is likely to start in the league once again. 

Alexander Isak (£7.0m)

The Swede has been starting alongside Callum Wilson which bodes well for both parties who have shared the goals recently.

Although Isak is more likely to start both DGW36 fixtures, he has also been super efficient with ten goals and an assist from 13 starts. The striker has delivered attacking returns in five of six starts against teams outside the top four and you can rely on him as a captaincy option.
