GW26 Kings to watch: Calvert-Lewin has fixtures to thrive

The Scout 24 Feb 2021

In-form Everton forward faces Southampton and West Brom in his Double Gameweek

A Double Gameweek 26 against Southampton and West Bromwich Albion looks hugely encouraging for the prospects of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) in Fantasy Premier League.

The forward returned from a short-term injury to earn the assist as Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) scored his penalty in Everton’s 2-0 win over Liverpool last weekend.

That took Calvert-Lewin's tally to two goals, two assists and 25 points in his last three appearances. 

When selected, he has been involved in a team-leading 58 per cent of Everton's goals this season.

Calvert-Lewin's GW23 goal

He now faces a pair of defences that have struggled to keep out their opponents recently.

Southampton have lost seven of their last eight Premier League matches, while West Brom have kept just one clean sheet in 11 outings under Sam Allardyce

Calvert-Lewin is among five Kings to watch selected by The Scout ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £6.9m

The Leicester City winger has emerged as the top target for Double Gameweek 26, earning 412,000 new owners for his matches against Arsenal and Burnley

Barnes has produced both a goal and an assist in each of his last two Gameweeks, totalling 25 points. 

Six of his nine goals this season, and four of his five assists, have come in the Foxes’ last 11 matches.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £11.8m

An ownership of under 12 per cent makes the Belgian a major differential for the Gameweek 26 captaincy.

Manchester City play at home on both occasions, facing West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The underlying numbers show De Bruyne’s huge all-round potential for those encounters.

At home, his 31 shots and 26 chances created are both team-leading totals for the league leaders.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.1m

The Tottenham Hotspur striker is the top-scoring forward in Fantasy on 155 points.

With 13 goals and 11 assists, he is among only two players in FPL to record double-figures for both statistics. 

He has averaged 7.0 points per match ahead of his Double Gameweek 26 against Burnley and Fulham.

Kane's goal threat, in particular, has been a standout feature for Spurs.

His 82 shots, 51 shots in the penalty area and 30 shots on target are all more than any team-mate. 

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £9.6m

The Manchester United attacker visits Chelsea and Crystal Palace on the back of a 12-point haul against Newcastle United, his highest since Gameweek 13.

Rashford has produced 28 points in his last four outings, scoring twice and supplying three assists.

An ownership of just 12.1 per cent makes him a powerful differential, particularly as a double-up option alongside Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m), for Man Utd's pair of matches.
