FPL Show: Mendy return poses Sane questions

The first Double Gameweek of the Fantasy Premier League season raises the prospect of big returns from Manchester City and Everton players.

The two teams will face each other next Wednesday, after Man City host Arsenal and the Toffees welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Goodison Park over the weekend.

Leroy Sane (£9.7m) looks well-placed to profit from those fixtures and could emerge as a leading captaincy candidate.

He is one of five players selected by The Scout who could be set for a bumper points haul in Gameweek 25.

Leroy Sane (MCI) £9.7m

The City winger has five double-figure returns this season, joint-top with Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) at the club.

At the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, Sane first takes on an Arsenal side who are the only team without an away clean sheet this season.

A trip to Everton should not hold too many fears either. Only Tottenham Hotspur, with 30, have scored more goals on the road than City's total of 23.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.4m

The attacking midfielder could be the pick of Everton's Double Gameweek prospects.

At home, Sigurdsson’s total of 36 shots is second only to the 45 of Paul Pogba (£8.7m) among FPL midfielders.

That could be crucial as both of Everton's fixtures are at Goodison Park.

They will look to breach a City defence with only two clean sheets since Gameweek 15 and a Wolves side who have managed just two shutouts on the road all season.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £8.6m

Son has been in superb form since opening his account for the season in Gameweek 11, scoring nine goals and setting up a further seven.

He marked his return from the Asian Cup with a goal in Spurs’ midweek win over Watford and will hope for more of the same when Newcastle United visit.

The Magpies travel to Wembley Stadium with one clean sheet from their last six away matches.

Patrick van Aanholt (CRY) £5.4m

Crystal Palace will be looking for a ninth clean sheet of the campaign when they host Fulham on Saturday.

The full-back boasts a major goal threat at Selhurst Park in particular. At home, his total of 20 shots ranks second among FPL defenders.

Fulham arrive with the joint-worst defensive record in the league, having conceded 20 goals on their travels.

Pascal Gross (BHA) £6.7m

Injuries have lessened the impact of the Brighton & Hove Albion playmaker this season.

But he is finding some form and has a goal or an assist from three of the last four Gameweeks.

The Seagulls host a Watford team with only two clean sheets from 12 away matches.
