With just over two days until the Gameweek 33 deadline in Fantasy Premier League, The Scout looks at the players from the six Double Gameweek 34 sides with the best schedules.

Reds can reward

Liverpools key players have the form and upcoming run of opponents to immediately reward investment.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), their three matches over the next two Gameweeks score a combined total of eight.

Brighton NFO (A) WOL (H)

Liverpool WHU (A) TOT (H)

Man City ARS (H)   FUL (A)

Man Utd  TOT (A)   AVL (H)

West Ham  LIV (H)   CRY (A)

The Reds visit West Ham United in midweek before hosting both Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham in Double Gameweek 34.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) is thriving in a new central-midfield role, supplying four of his eight assists this season in the last three matches.

While Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) is Liverpool’s go-to captaincy pick, Diogo Jota (£8.8m) has emerged as a huge differential for FPL managers’ forward lines, with back-to-back double-figure returns. 

Fixtures favour Seagulls

Brighton & Hove Albion have the most favourable schedule in the FDR analysis, with their three matches tallying only seven.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side travel to 19th-placed Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 33.

Along with Liverpool, they are one of only two sides who have two home matches in Double Gameweek 34, against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United

Indeed, their long-term fixtures indicate now is the time to bring in Brighton players.

They are the only side to have three Double Gameweeks over the run-in, also playing twice in Gameweek 36 and Gameweek 37. Furthermore, both their matches in Gameweek 35 and Gameweek 38 score only two in the FDR.

Kaoru Mitoma (£5.6m) is by far the Seagulls' most popular pick, with an ownership over 25 per cent.

He ranks 10th for points in Fantasy since making his full debut in Gameweek 14, producing 106 points thanks to seven goals and six assists.

His fellow midfielders Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) and Solly March (£5.2m), along with left-back Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m), can also offer huge value across the rest of the campaign.

Forward targets at Man City 

Manchester City’s schedule also looks encouraging for their attacking potential.

In Gameweek 33, their title-rivals Arsenal arrive at the Etihad Stadium having conceded at least twice in three successive matches.

Matches with Fulham and West Ham United in Double Gameweek 34 give Jack Grealish (£7.2m) the chance to claim his role as the best double-up option alongside Erling Haaland (£12.1m).

Grealish has two goals, three assists and 31 points in his last three matches. 

Crucially, he has been immune to Pep Guardiola’s rotation and has started each of Man City’s last 12 league matches. 

Rashford for the run-in

Man Utd and Fulham, meanwhile, each face three of the current top eight sides over the next two Gameweeks.

Regardless of his schedule, the fit-again Marcus Rashford (£7.1m) is a must-have for the run-in.

The United attacker is the joint-top scoring player in Fantasy since the season resumed, with 112 points, after scoring 11 goals and supplying three assists.

Fulham’s Andreas Pereira (£4.4m) has scored two of his four goals this season in the last four Gameweeks and could be a very handy budget pick.

The Brazilian also has 10 assists this season, a total bettered by only two other players in Fantasy, and could also be on penalty duties due to Aleksander Mitrovic’s (£6.6m) long-term suspension. 

Hard on Hammers

West Ham’s upcoming schedule is arguably the least promising of the Double Gameweek 34 sides.

They are up against both Liverpool and Man City and also face a Crystal Palace side revitalised under Roy Hodgson.

David Moyes’ men then host Man Utd in Gameweek 35, lessening the appeal of Jarrod Bowen (£8.0m).

Ahead of their Gameweek 32 fixture with AFC Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon, the midfielder has produced returns in three successive fixtures for the first time this season.
