Key players from Brighton & Hove Albion are set to play a huge part in the Fantasy Premier League run-in following the rescheduling of a previously postponed match on Thursday afternoon.

The Seagulls’ trip to Newcastle United at St James’ Park has been given a new date of Thursday 18 May, resulting in a Double Gameweek 36 for both clubs.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side admittedly have a tough pair of matches, visiting Arsenal prior to meeting Newcastle, who will travel to Leeds United beforehand.

However, Brighton are also among the six sides who have a Double Gameweek 34 too, hosting both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United.

Although Brighton face a Blank Gameweek 32 due to their progress to the FA Cup semi-finals, they still have another match to be rescheduled, which could result in a further Double Gameweek over the run-in.

Kaoru Mitoma (£5.7m) is their top pick, with his average of 6.1 points per start placing fourth among midfielders this season.

Mitoma's goal v Brentford

Solly March (£5.2m) and Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) provide strong double-up options in attack.

March has created 18 chances over the last four Gameweeks, more than any other player in Fantasy.

Mac Allister's 15 shots in that period are top for De Zerbi's side.

In defence, five assists and seven clean sheets suggest Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m) can provide further value.

Isak the prime pick

Alexander Isak (£6.7m) has been Newcastle's standout pick recently and is the best double-up option alongside Kieran Trippier (£6.2m).

Isak has scored five goals in his last six matches since a recent return from injury, picking up a team-leading 35 points.

Isak's goal v Brentford

The forward's totals of 17 shots and 13 shots in the box in his last six matches are both more than any team-mate.

Isak's 10 shots on target across that run have been more than double any other Newcastle player and placed third among all forwards.
