A goal and an assist at Watford have made Bukayo Saka (£6.5m) a must-have for many managers in Double Gameweek 29 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Arsenal winger also collected two bonus points at Vicarage Road, claiming a 12-point haul on Sunday.

Saka is the most-bought player in Fantasy in the last 24 hours, earning 83,000+ new owners for the Gunners’ home matches against Leicester City and Liverpool

The winger has stepped up his output recently, blanking in only three of his last 10 appearances. 

Top-scoring DGW29 players, last four matches*
Player Points
Mane (LIV) 37
Salah (LIV) 34
Robertson (LIV), Schar (NEW) 32
Kane (TOT) 28
Saka (ARS), Willock (NEW) 26
Fraser (NEW) 25
Lacazette (ARS), Kulusevski, Son (TOT) 23

*Maximum three players per DGW team

Crucially, Arsenal, along with Tottenham Hotspur, are one of only two DGW29 sides who are also scheduled to play in the reduced Gameweek 30.

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) has scored two of his three goals this season, and supplied all eight of his assists, in their last 10 matches. 

Value in Spurs and Liverpool

Spurs winger Dejan Kulusevski (£6.1m) offers a value route into their attack against Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Ahead of their meeting with Everton this evening, the Swede’s 23 points in his previous four is identical to the total of team-mate Son Heung-min (£10.8m).

Meanwhile, Sadio Mane (£11.7m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.2m) could prove major differentials for Liverpool’s matches with Brighton and Arsenal.

Mane has outscored Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) by 37 points to 34 in their last four matches yet is owned by a mere 3.4 per cent. 

Robertson, who can be found in 7.2 per cent of squads, returned 32 points, more than any other Reds’ defender.

In-form Schar

Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar (£4.3m) is another defender in superb form. 

The centre-back faces Chelsea and Everton on the back of a goal, an assist, two clean sheets and seven bonus in his last four appearances.
