FPL GW20 Transfer Tips: Who Are the Best Picks?

FPL GW20 is the second double gameweek of the season and the biggest so far, with four teams playing twice.

Crystal Palace, Man City, Man Utd, and Tottenham have two matches each.

Some of the most in-form FPL assets are from these teams, including United duo Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw.

So here are the best players to transfer in for DGW20.

Kevin De Bruyne

  • Price: £12.5m
  • Picked by: 37%
  • Fixtures: Man Utd (a) + Spurs (H), Wolves (H), Spurs (a)

De Bruyne is a chance creation machine. He has the most assists in the league (10) and the highest xA (9).

The Belgian has the most key passes (57), shot-creating actions (106), and goal-creating actions (18).

He has three goals too, taking 45 shots overall (7th most).

Erling Haaland (£12.2m) is another obvious transfer this week, but he’s in 85% of teams anyway.

Harry Kane

  • Price: £11.6m
  • Picked by: 30%
  • Fixtures: Arsenal (H) + Man City (a), Fulham (a), Man City (H)

With the crazy form of Haaland, Kane’s impressive season has gone under the radar somewhat.

He has the second most attacking returns, 15 goals, and four assists, taking the second most shots as well (62).

Tottenham play Arsenal at home in the first of their two fixtures, where they have a strong record, being unbeaten in their last 8, winning 6.

Kane himself has a good record against Arsenal, scoring 14 times in 16 meetings with them.

They also play Man City at the Etihad, where they won 3-2 last season with Kane scoring twice.

Marcus Rashford

  • Price: £7.0m
  • Picked by: 38%
  • Fixtures: Man City (H) + Crystal Palace (a), Arsenal (a), Crystal Palace (H)

Rashford is currently in red-hot form, scoring in each of his last 5 appearances in all competitions.

He’s United’s top scorer in the league with 7 goals, providing three assists too.

He also has the second-highest xG out of all midfielders (7.2).

Additionally, he takes penalties sometimes, scoring one against Everton in the FA Cup.

United’s double gameweek includes Crystal Palace, but also a tough fixture on paper versus Man City.

However, United are in good form, winning their last four matches, so it should be a competitive game.

Luke Shaw

  • Price: £5.1m
  • Picked by: 13%
  • Fixtures: Man City (H) + Crystal Palace (a), Arsenal (a), Crystal Palace (H)

Luke Shaw came away with a 15-point haul in the last gameweek thanks to a goal, a clean sheet, and all three bonus points.

He has two assists this campaign too, with an xA of 1.9 (9th highest amongst defenders) and 2.9 shot-creating actions per 90.

United have the 5th best defence statistically, conceding just 20 times, plus the fourth-lowest xGA (19.2).

Nathan Ake

  • Price: £5.0m
  • Picked by: 1%
  • Fixtures: Man Utd (a) + Spurs (H), Wolves (H), Spurs (a)

With a double gameweek, it’s crucial that you have a Man City defender.

They have the lowest xGA this season (12.3) and Ake is a great choice.

He’s cheap at £5.0m, playing left-back lately but with his main position being a left centre-back he’s more likely to get minutes ahead of others.

The Dutch international has made 10 starts so far, including four of the last 5 league games.

Importantly, he’s only been subbed on once, so there’s a low risk of him coming off the bench for a 1 pointer.

John Stones (£5.4m) and Manuel Akanji (£5.0m) have also featured a lot this season and are worth considering too, but there’ll be rotation risk regardless of who you choose.
