You may have missed the boat on the three promoted sides, whose players are scoring double points in this week's FPL Challenge, but don’t worry, you can still enter a squad.

And there is still plenty to play for, with Chelsea, Newcastle United, Manchester United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester City all yet to play.

Remember, you’ll have to pick players from these five teams before their FIRST fixture of DGW34. Once a player's team have started their first match of the Double Gameweek, they will be locked from any changes in or out of your line-up.

The final deadline for entering a squad is at 20:00 BST on Wednesday.

Here, Fantasy expert Neale Rigg pinpoints the players and matches to target in the fixtures before that deadline.

20:00 BST Fantasy Challenge deadline 
Arsenal v Chelsea

Arsenal, Bournemouth and Wolves players will be off-limits if you're entering a squad at this stage because this will be their second fixture of DGW34.

But Chelsea enter the conversation at Emirates Stadium.

In truth, it’s likely only Cole Palmer (£6.2m) who could tempt Fantasy managers away from the Double Gameweek path.

What a season he’s having, with a double-century of points already in the bag - and he didn't start a match until Gameweek 7!

Since then, Palmer's delivered a remarkable 11 more attacking returns than any other Fantasy midfielder. Having already scored against Arsenal this season, a trip to north London will hold no fear.

20:00 BST Fantasy Challenge deadline
Crystal Palace v Newcastle
Man Utd v Sheff Utd
Brighton v Man City

It’s the turn of Newcastle, Brighton and both of the Manchester clubs to stake their claim ahead of the final deadline in FPL Challenge.

All of these sides play just once in Gameweek 34, of course, so they might be a harder sell this week.

With that said, Alexander Isak (£8.0m) can do plenty of damage in just one match. He’s delivered 17 goals in only 21 starts and a handful of substitute appearances. Seven of those strikes have come in his last six runouts, so he is FPL’s form forward.

Speaking of form, Bruno Fernandes (£8.3m) has plenty of it ahead of a home match against the league's leakiest defence. He’s delivered seven attacking returns in his last seven starts.

Not being able to see the line-ups ahead of Thursday's match at the Amex Stadium might be enough to put most Fantasy managers off Man City.

But it’s a ground that Phil Foden (£8.2m) loves: he’s scored in each of his last three trips to Brighton.
