Luke Shaw among five players with two matches picked in best Fantasy XI

Luke Shaw (£5.3m) is among three Manchester United players picked in the best XI for Double Gameweek 22 of Fantasy Premier League.

The left-back is joined by Marcus Rashford (£7.2m) and Bruno Fernandes (£9.9m) for the Red Devils' pair of home encounters with Crystal Palace and Leeds United.

Shaw has emerged as a major target ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline, with his 524,000 transfers in more than double that of any other defender.

He has proven a huge success at Old Trafford recently, combining a goal with five clean sheets in his previous six.

Nonetheless, it is his team-mate Rashford who earns the armband, with Fernandes named as vice-captain in a 3-4-3 formation. 

Illan Meslier (LEE) £4.5m 
The goalkeeper offers all-round potential for Leeds' trips to Nottingham Forest and Man Utd. Meslier has two clean sheets and four save points in his five matches since the season resumed.

Kieran Trippier (NEW) £6.1m
Newcastle United's right-back hosts West Ham United on the back of an impeccable record at St James' Park. Trippier has produced attacking or defensive returns in all 10 of his home appearances this season, averaging 7.7 points per match.

Luke Shaw (MUN) £5.3m
His 44 points in his last six home matches rank joint-top with Rashford for Man Utd.

Ben Mee (BRE) £4.8m
Brentford's centre-back can produce points at both ends of the pitch at home to Southampton. Mee is the third top-scoring defender at home this season, earning 51 points thanks to two goals, four clean sheets and six bonus.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £9.9m
The Portuguese is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning 586,000+ owners for Man Utd's two matches. Fernandes' total of 19 points in Double Gameweek 20 was more than any team-mate.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.2m
The England star offers a strong Triple Captain chip option against Palace and Leeds. Rashford has averaged 9.1 points per home start this term, producing seven of his nine goals and two of his three assists at Old Trafford.

Martin Odegaard (ARS) £6.9m
Arsenal's playmaker has scored six of his eight goals this season in away matches. Odegaard visits Everton with six double-figure scores to his name in 2022/23, second only to the seven of Erling Haaland (£12.2m).

Kaoru Mitoma (BHA) £5.1m
Brighton & Hove Albion's Japanese star hosts AFC Bournemouth in a prolific run of form. Mitoma has four goals and two assists in his last six in all competitions, claiming his season-high 10 points in the 2-2 draw at Leicester City last time out.

Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.2m
Manchester City's forward has averaged 8.9 points per match on his way to the top of the player standings. Haaland has scored a league-high seven goals since the season resumed, including a strike in the 4-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 20 ahead of Sunday's reverse fixture.

Ivan Toney (BRE) £7.7m
The Brentford talisman has amassed 40 points across his previous five appearances, scoring five goals and supplying an assist. Toney can deliver another big score against a Southampton side who have kept only one single clean sheet on their travels.

Wilfried Gnonto (LEE) £5.0m 
His 11 shots, eight shots in the box and five chances created all place among Leeds' top three players from Gameweek 17 onwards. Gnonto has three goals in his last five matches across all competitions and could be a vital figure in the absence of the injured Rodrigo (£6.4m).
