There are only three gameweeks remaining, including a seven-match schedule this weekend which sees Chelsea, Man United and Leicester among those to miss out. With some big stars blanking it’ll take some careful tweaks for you to have a strong weekend.
Ahead of this weekend’s fixtures we’ve ran through each game to pick out the FPL stars to sign before Friday’s deadline.

Fantasy Football Transfer Tips this Week
Leeds set for big finish
This has been a brilliant campaign for Leeds, who will be out to finish in the top half in their final three matches. The idea of Bielsa burn-out has been dismissed with good displays late in this condensed season. Now the Elland Road side have three good fixtures to end their first season back in the top-flight.
Leeds meet Burnley, Southampton and West Brom in the next three and we’ve gone for three of their stars to pad out our side. Illan Meslier (£4.7million) is a great option in goal at a bargain price, while Stuart Dallas (£5.3m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.4m) have combined for 333 points between them this term. They can do more damage in the run-in.
Everton making Euro surge
Another side we’re tripling up on this weekend is Everton. The Toffees won at West Ham last weekend to keep their own Europa League ambitions alive, with their good recent form built on a solid defence. That’s led to us backing two Everton defenders.
Lucas Digne (£6.2m) and Seamus Coleman (£4.9m) are both great options. The full-backs can pop up with assists, but they’re able to bank points as part of a good backline. With a pair of home games against Sheffield United and Wolves up next, we’re expecting the pair to produce the goods in the final two weeks of the campaign.
We’re also willing to give Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) another chance to get among the goals in those two games.
Who to Captain in GW36
Liverpool players will be popular in the run-in as the Reds face three straightforward games with a Champions League place still within their reach. However, getting Mo Salah on side isn’t going to move the needle if you need a big finish.
Instead, it’s worth turning to Sadio Mane (£11.7m) for the final few games. The forward has blanked once in his last five starts in the league and he should tear into a poor West Brom side this weekend. The best thing about Mane is that his ownership sits at just 5.5%, giving you and edge over most FPL managers.
