Managers in Fantasy Premier League need to start planning for the final two Double Gameweeks of the season.

In Gameweek 34 two teams, Cardiff City and Brighton & Hove Albion, will play twice.

Eight teams then have a Double Gameweek 35, including six of the top eight in the Premier League.

FPL managers have a number of chips available to prepare for the run-in and take advantage of such scenarios.

The FPL panel of experts reveal their plans for the chips over the remainder of the season.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): My Wildcard's active this week with a view to playing my Bench Boost chip in Double Gameweek 35. I'm looking at Shane Duffy (£4.7m) as my differential pick for the run-in, with two upcoming Double Gameweeks for Brighton.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): With my Wildcard active for Gameweek 34 and a Bench Boost chip to follow in Gameweek 35, Brighton assets are on my watchlist for their two doubles. Mat Ryan (£4.4m) looks the obvious pick, but Lewis Dunk (£4.4m) and Duffy could be great picks too. I’m also bringing in James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m) for Southampton’s Double Gameweek 35. He's in decent form and has great fixtures all the way through to the end of the season.

WGTA (@WGTA_FPL): I Wildcarded last week. Troy Deeney (£5.9m) at Watford may join Harry Kane (£12.5m) and Raul Jimenez (£6.8m) in my front line for his Double Gameweek 35.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): With my Wildcard active, I'm looking at the Tottenham Hotspur midfield for differentials as I feel Kane is dropping slightly deeper to dictate play. The form of Christian Eriksen (£9.2m) means he’s in my thoughts, as is Son Heung-min (£8.5m). But I reckon Lucas Moura (£6.7m) and Dele Alli (£8.8m) could be big differentials.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg): I only have Bench Boost left so have upgraded Jason Puncheon (£4.2m) to Ryan Fraser (£6.3m) as preparation. I thought Gerard Deulofeu (£5.7m) would be a good differential when I brought him in on Saturday night and his FA Cup semi-final display has highlighted his potential.

Paul Gee (@fplPaulGee): I hit the Wildcard button on Friday night. Danny Ings (£5.4m) could be a massive differential.

Josh, Always Cheating #FPL Podcast (@hailcheaters): My Wildcard is active and I still have Bench Boost and Triple Captain left to use. With no more FA Cup commitments, I love Wolves assets for the rest of the season. I'll be tripling up, likely with Jimenez, Diogo Jota (£6.1m) and Jonny (£4.3m).
