The Scout assesses the best options by position in Fantasy Premier League for managers planning for Double Gameweek 22 and beyond.
David De Gea (MUN) £5.2m
De Gea has been a key performer for interim head coach Ralf Rangnick, averaging 5.2 points per match over five outings.
He has combined two clean sheets with four save points and four bonus points in that period.
De Gea's best 2021/22 saves
Man Utd's upcoming matches further boost De Gea’s appeal for managers playing their Wildcard.
From Gameweek 23 onwards, four of their subsequent five matches score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).
Hugo Lloris (TOT) £5.4m
Tottenham Hotspur’s No 1 has also thrived under a new head coach, averaging 5.1 points per match since Antonio Conte arrived in north London.
However, his schedule thereafter suggests the Frenchman could be a strong long-term pick.
Robert Sanchez (BHA) £4.6m
On the downside, Brighton's Blank Gameweek 24 means Sanchez’s 18.3 per cent owners will need another goalkeeper as cover.
Crucially, Brighton have a kind schedule following that blank. From Gameweek 25 onwards, three of their next four matches score only two in the FDR.
Daniel Bachmann (WAT) £4.3m
With Ben Foster (£4.1m) still a major injury doubt for Watford, Bachmann could be a handy budget option for managers playing their Bench Boost chip.
Although Watford have yet to keep a clean sheet, Bachmann is likely to provide managers with plenty of save points.
The Austrian made nine saves, and therefore earned three save points, against both Manchester City and Spurs in his last four outings.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (CHE) £4.7m
Chelsea's back-up goalkeeper offers a short-term option for managers playing their Free Hit chip for Double Gameweek 22.
With Edouard Mendy (£6.2m) participating in the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal, Kepa is expected to start against both Man City and Brighton.
At a cost of just £4.7m, he could be strong value as a route into one of the league’s best defences, particularly against the Seagulls in his second match of Gameweek 22.
