With ArsenalLiverpoolWolverhampton Wanderers and Everton each having a Double Gameweek 25, The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League pick out the key targets.

What the experts say

Triple Arsenal is a must as they are the form team and have great fixtures in the Double. I still think Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) is worth buying despite his and Liverpool's poor form. You have to put yourself in a position to get lucky over two matches.

Given most people already have triple Arsenal, adding two or three Double Gameweek players doesn't seem too ambitious. Bukayo Saka (£8.3m) is the standout player to own but Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) could make strong cases despite their high prices.

I have three Arsenal players as well as Liverpool's Darwin Nunez (£8.7m). With Arsenal playing twice in Gameweek 25 and certain to play in Gameweek 28, owning three of the Gunners' stars is essential.

Liverpool haven't been in great form so investing in them feels like a risk. But many of their assets are differentials and could therefore give managers a rank boost. Everton, like Arsenal, can't blank in Gameweek 28, so investing in James Tarkowski (£4.2m) seems sensible.

Three players from Arsenal is something everyone should and will probably have. Outside of that, I'm looking at owning two or maybe three Liverpool players because you can't get lucky if you're not trying. I am also looking at Tarkowski.

I already have three Arsenal and one Wolves player, but none from Liverpool. I'm considering maybe a couple of players from the Reds to bolster my numbers for the Double Gameweek, despite their poor form.

I am hesitant to overcommit on an out-of-form Liverpool. At the moment I plan to just have Salah. Teams should be well stocked up on Arsenal.

From the other two teams, Everton's Tarkowski or Jordan Pickford (£4.4m) could be great picks for the Double, and they have confirmed fixtures in Blank Gameweeks 28 and 32.

Arsenal look good for the triple-up. The only other team I'd look at for Double Gameweek 25 is Liverpool, and even then I'd need to see some form and a better performance against Newcastle United in Gameweek 24. 

Salah's probably a stretch for many FPL managers, but Nunez feels a little more in reach and has an ownership under 10 per cent, making him a decent differential.
