The Scout's panel of FPL experts discuss who they will be backing for the Gameweek ahead.

What the experts say

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): It's a massive Double Gameweek for Manchester City in terms of clinching the Premier League title. Kevin De Bruyne (£9.7m), Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) and Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) are going to be crucial to their success. Look past those tough fixtures.

Ash (@FPLHints): The Double Gameweek provides an opportunity for the Bench Boost chip. De Bruyne is a standout sub-£10m pick, as demonstrated on Sunday. An honourable mention must also go to Nathan Redmond (£5.3m) for Southampton's two fixtures.

Simon March (@MarchSimon): Arsenal's largely unfancied attacking assets might surprise a few against Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Their UEFA Europa League match on Thursday should give us an indication of who is most likely to start.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Every team with two matches seems to come with a "but", and we shouldn't forget those with a single Gameweek, like Liverpool, who play Cardiff City. I'm aiming for a main course of Tottenham Hotspur, Wolves and Liverpool, with a side order of Man City and Southampton.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Gameweek 35 has some really difficult fixtures to navigate. Arsenal have a reasonable Double and players like Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) could be good options. 

Paul Gee (FPLPaulGee): For me, Southampton are safe after their weekend win over Wolves. Huddersfield are Huddersfield, so backing Watford is the way forward.
