FPL Gameweek 25: Gabriel Martinelli, Diogo Dalot and five tips for players to sign this week
The return of the Champions League, plus Europa play-off games, means midweek alterations and weekend rotations once again become a factor for Fantasy Premier League managers to take into account as we move into a fractured period of fixtures.
Some teams have double gameweeks across the next ten days or so, including Premier League leaders Liverpool - but the following week, GW 26, will see four clubs without any fixtures - again the Reds are one of them.
Here are our selections and tips for GW25 for five players worth considering as transfers to bring in if you don’t already own them - but remember the gameweek starts after Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace on Monday night.
Sheffield United, Everton, Fulham, Nottingham Forest - that’s the upcoming fixture list for Brighton in the Premier League, four teams with a combined two wins from their last 16 games between them. If the Seagulls were in slightly better form it might make them a more tempting proposition, but even so they’re a good enough team to score plenty of goals in that run.
Staying slightly safe with a pick, though, Pascal Gross is in good form to average 6.5 points per game over the last month, takes set pieces and is a regular 90-minute performer. Regardless of the rotating cast of attackers around him, the German is always central to Brighton’s best attacking performances and is only owned by 5.6% of FPL teams - despite being a top 10 midfielder by points this season.
If you’re looking at the teams who have double gameweeks, Brentford possibly aren’t the way to go - they face Liverpool then Man City, just three days apart. But Liverpool themselves will surely see a chance to rack up six more points in quickfire fashion as they look to hold top onto top
