Some of the world's top managers on who they are backing from Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City

The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts share their thoughts on the best attackers to own for Double Gameweek 25 ahead of Friday's 18:30 GMT deadline.

Of the DGW teams Arsenal and Liverpool look the best attacks to target. Bukayo Saka (£8.4m) looks the must-have of the attacking options as long as his ankle is OK after Gameweek 23's match with Aston Villa.

Cody Gakpo (£7.8m) also looks to be a great differential after back-to-back goals in GW23 and 24. The midfielder is only owned by 4.0 per cent of managers and is much easier for managers to budget for without selling the likes of Harry Kane (£11.7m) to fund Mohamed Salah (£12.6m).

However don't overlook the single gameweekers with great fixtures, who could end up bringing great returns in GW25, such as Erling Haaland (£12.2m) against AFC Bournemouth.

Despite not boasting very encouraging numbers, I've already bought in Salah because simply put, in a double, I will back him. Eddie Nketiah (£6.8m) has been unlucky of late but I think eventually, he'll deliver on his underlyings.

I also fancy getting in Darwin Nunez (£8.7m) to catch him on the day, if he buries his chances instead of missing them, as long as he is fit and available.

Saka, Martin Odegaard (£7.0m) and Nketiah would be my top three picks in that order. Liverpool have also showed glimpses of their old self over the last two matches. Salah and Nunez, if injury-free, are top picks and Gakpo is also worth a look.

I noticed Gakpo's confidence visibly soar where he scored his first goal for Liverpool in the Merseyside derby and he followed that strike up with another against Newcastle.

If you've got your eye on a Liverpool midfielder, Salah is the best choice in my opinion, but at his price it might mean making sacrifices you don't want to make - like Kevin De Bruyne (£12.4m) or Kane.

If that's the case, then Gakpo is a differential worth looking at given his low ownership.

Saka, Odegaard, Nketiah, Salah and Nunez seem the best picks if you're looking to buy. I think Gabriel Martinelli (£6.5m) is worth holding but not taking a hit to buy.

Dwight McNeil (£5.1m) is probably the best option from Everton or Wolves as he looks to deliver the ball in the box at every opportunity.

Most managers already have triple Arsenal, so we have to look to Liverpool to cover an attack that is starting to convert more of their chances.

Whilst Salah, Nunez and Gakpo are all more obvious attacking transfers, don't forget that the Liverpool full-backs regularly produce good assist threat.

I think owning the penalty takers over a DGW is always wise, and that makes Salah and Saka my top two picks.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal are great attacks so pairing them with another like Nunez, if fit, and Odegaard or Nketiah, would be wise.
