Mohamed Salah

  • Price: £12.6m
  • Picked by: 24%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (a) + Wolves (H), Man United (H), Bournemouth (a)

Liverpool have dropped off massively this season, but have won their last two games 2-0.

Salah is a safe bet for the double gameweek, scoring 8 goals and getting 6 assists this term.

He will not only be a popular captain option but statistically the best, too.

The Egyptian has taken 70 shots overall (fourth most), including the third most on target (28), giving him an xG of 11.4 (5th highest).

He has also made 40 key passes, 83 shot-creating actions (both 10th most), and 12 goal-creating actions (fourth most) resulting in an xA of 5.1 (9th highest), giving him an xGI of 16.4 (fourth highest).

Liverpool play Palace and Wolves in DGW25. They travel to Selhurst Park to face the Eagles who have conceded the third most home goals (17), before facing Wolves at Anfield where they’ve won 7 out of 11 this campaign.

Darwin Nunez

  • Price: £8.7m
  • Picked by: 8%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (a) + Wolves (H), Man United (H), Bournemouth (a)

Nunez has been viewed as a flop by many, despite scoring 6 goals (roughly 0.5 per 90) and providing four assists.

The Uruguayan is underperforming his xG of 10.8 (6th highest), but this usually evens out so expect lots of goals to come.

His xG per 90 also backs this up, averaging 0.9 – the 5th most in the league.

The forward has taken 68 shots (5th most), the most per 90 (5.5) including the most on target too (2.3).

He could be a very high-scoring asset in DGW25.

Bukayo Saka

  • Price: £8.4m
  • Picked by: 35%
  • Fixtures: Leicester (a) + Everton (H), Bournemouth (H), Fulham (a)

It feels like Arsenal are doubling every week right now, with this being their second in three gameweeks, and Arsenal assets are very popular as a result.

Saka has been the most consistent, scoring and assisting 9 each, the third most attacking returns so far.

The winger has been an influential figure this term, taking 55 shots (8th most) and making 50 key passes (6th most).

Additionally, he has produced 99 shot-creating actions (5th most) and the second most goal-creating actions (17), averaging 0.8 per 90.

If you need one Arsenal asset over any others, Saka is your man.

Jordan Pickford

  • Price: £4.4m
  • Picked by: 6%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (H) + Arsenal (a), Nottingham Forest (a), Brentford (H)

Under Sean Dyche Everton have played two home games, keeping two clean sheets, nearly as many as they picked up during the rest of the season (three).

In this week’s double they face Villa at home, with a good chance of another clean sheet.

Pickford has made the third most saves (79), 74% of the efforts he’s faced.

He has also saved Everton 1.2 goals over the course of the season according to post-shot xG – GA (6th highest), which measures the ‘keeper’s ability to stop shots.

Even if Everton don’t keep a clean sheet, Pickford still has the chance to pick up save points so it’s a transfer worth making in a double gameweek.

James Tarkowski

  • Price: £4.3m
  • Picked by: 5%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (H) + Arsenal (a), Nottingham Forest (a), Brentford (H)

An alternative Everton defender to Pickford is James Tarkowski.

Tarkowski is cheaper at £4.3m and provides a significant goal threat, with the 5th highest xG for a defender (1.8), scoring once, as well as taking 1.8 touches in the opposition box per 90 (98th percentile in Europe’s top 5 leagues).

His minutes are secure too, playing every minute of Everton’s league matches this campaign.

Alongside, Luke Shaw and Seamus Coleman, Tarkowski is the highest point scoring FPL defender in the last three gameweeks.
