FPL GW27 Tips: Time to chill?

Double Gameweek 26 is almost over, but there are still busy moments ahead of us.

We will see another double gameweek in the next round.

If you planned properly you will go through it without any problems and perhaps even safe one transfer.

If that is your case, you can chill now and ease your mind from FPL.

But if not…

Here are FPL GW27 Tips.

Tips for FPL GW27

Strategy for double gameweek 27

Southampton and Manchester City play twice in GW27.

The Saints do not have very appealing fixtures in GW27 – Sheffield (A) and Man City (A).

Their players were very unconvincing lately and we would avoid them altogether despite that they play twice.

On the other hand, Manchester City is in great form and their fixtures are better – Manchester United (H) and Southampton (H).

We advised you to load up on 3 Man City players back in GW24.

So you should be well set up for GW27 and you could perhaps even safe a transfer to have more flexibility in the next round and ahead of Blank GW29.And chill and ease your mind.

But in case you do not have three City players in your team, just transfer them in.

Best double gameweek 27 captain

If you do not want to captain double gameweek player in GW27, then look at Spurs and Liverpool players.

Kane and Son could be good captaincy choices again, this time against Crystal Palace.

Liverpool has very favorable fixture against Fulham, so second most scoring player Mohamed Salah could be great captain.

A lot of FPL managers will captain a City player. So, if you are looking for differential captain, Mohamed Salah is your man.

However, if you want to exploit full potential of the double gameweek, you should captain Manchester City players.

Focus on players, that were benched in GW26, as they could play more minutes in GW27.

Raheem Sterling is one of them, but he has disappointed us as a captain a lot this season.

Sterling is not playing the way he played previous three seasons where we were captaining him a lot.

He is not even on course for 200+ points season (he scored 200+ points in all three previous seasons).

That’s why our current GW27 captain pick is Joao Cancelo.

Creative fullback was rested in the first game of double gameweek 26, so we expect him to start both games in GW27 and to support City’s attack again.

In addition, City have amazing defensive record this season, so there could be at least one clean sheet for their defenders in next gameweek.
