With Liverpool having several Double Gameweeks coming up, and no Blank Gameweeks, the Scout's panel of experts discuss which Reds players to target in Fantasy Premier League.

I'm still unconvinced by Liverpool's defence, particularly with their challenging fixtures in the short-term. Manchester City and Chelsea away is hardly ideal in Double Gameweek 29. However, they do tend to turn up in the big matches, so I'm OK investing in the attack with Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) or Darwin Nunez (£8.8m), if the latter is ruled fit.

As Erling Haaland (£12.0m) is an injury doubt, I'm considering bringing in Salah for Double Gameweek 29. I have my doubts about their defence but I think their attack will still score goals.

If you don't have your Free Hit chip available, Liverpool are a great club to target as they play Nottingham Forest in Blank Gameweek 32 and also have a great Double in Gameweek 34.

Though Liverpool have a Double Gameweek 29, players like Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) will come at a considerable cost. Cody Gakpo (£7.7m) may represent a cheaper alternative. Luis Diaz (£7.8m) may also be one to watch if he can get himself fit in time.

Liverpool are a team very heavily dependant on the chips you have left. While they have a Double in Gameweek 29, it isn't the best as they play Man City and Chelsea away.

However, they have some great fixtures after Gameweek 30. Planning how to get their players in will be crucial, given their expensive prices. Salah will be my second premium, and one of either Alexander-Arnold, Diaz or Darwin are on my radar.

As well as playing in Double Gameweek 29, Liverpool have a fixture in Blank Gameweek 32 and another Double in Gameweek 34. Therefore, this could be a good time to invest. Managers should consider their defence as they have kept five clean sheets in their last six Premier League matches.

Liverpool's fixtures swing for the better in Gameweek 31. With no Blank Gameweeks forecasted, and a good Double in 34, I think there will be plenty of interest in their players.
