Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester United assets dominate the best XI for Double Gameweek 29 of Fantasy Premier League.

Both clubs supply three players to a side that lines up in a 3-5-2 formation.

At the back, Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele is a cut-price gem at £3.9m for his matches with Brentford and AFC Bournemouth, while Man Utd left-back Luke Shaw (£5.2m) offers strong all-round potential against Newcastle United and Brentford.

Brighton and Man Utd also supply two midfielders each, with the Seagulls’ Kaoru Mitoma and Alexis Mac Allister (both £5.5m) joined by United's Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) and Bruno Fernandes (£9.6m).

Rashford is handed the armband on the back of six goals and an assist in his last seven matches, while Mitoma’s average of 6.6 points per start this season, earns him the vice-captaincy.

Jason Steele (BHA) £3.9m
The goalkeeper has been a major success since taking over from Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) as Brighton’s No 1. Steele has 17 points in three matches, keeping a clean sheet on two of those occasions.

Kieran Trippier (NEW) £6.1m
Newcastle United’s right-back offers many routes to returns against Man Utd and West Ham United. Trippier has combined a goal and six assists with 14 clean sheets and 31 bonus points on his way to the top of the defender standings. 

Luke Shaw (MUN) £5.2m
Man Utd’s left-back is the most-bought defender in the Gameweek, earning 110,000+ new owners. Shaw is the top-scoring defender in Fantasy since the season resumed, amassing 64 points thanks to one goal and two assists and six clean sheets.

Ben Chilwell (CHE) £6.0m
Back-to-back home fixtures against Aston Villa and Liverpool give the Chelsea wing-back the chance to maintain his current form. Chilwell has 19 points over his previous three appearances, returning one goal, one assist and a clean sheet.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £9.6m
The Portuguese totalled 31 points over Man Utd’s Double Gameweek 20 and Double Gameweek 22, just a single point behind Rashford (£7.3m). Fernandes’ ownership of under eight per cent makes him a huge differential for his two matches.

James Maddison (LEI) £8.2m
Leicester City’s playmaker offers a major all-round threat against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. Maddison’s 58 shots and 48 key passes are both team-leading totals for the Foxes this season.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.3m
Man Utd’s England star has averaged 8.1 points per start since the season resumed. Rashford has 10 goals and two assists in 12 appearances in that period, with his 94 points joint-top among all players in Fantasy.

Kaoru Mitoma (BHA) £5.5m
The Japanese has been one of the most reliable players in Fantasy this term, blanking in just three of his 13 starts for Roberto De Zerbi. Mitoma has returned all three of his double-figure hauls for 2022/23 in his previous seven appearances. 

Alexis Mac Allister (BHA) £5.5m
A recent move to a No 10 role has lifted the attacker's goal threat. Mac Allister’s totals of 15 shots, 10 shots in the box and six shots on target in his last four matches were all more than any other Brighton player.

Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.0m
Despite having a single fixture in Double Gameweek 29, Man City’s Norwegian remains among the best armband options. Haaland averages 9.9 points per home start in his debut Fantasy campaign ahead of his encounter with Liverpool

Ollie Watkins (AVL) £7.5m
Aston Villa’s forward visits Chelsea and Leicester in prolific form on the road. Watkins has scored in each of his last four away fixtures and also collected five bonus, totalling 29 points.
