Fantasy Premier League | Gameweek 27 – Picks For The Double Gameweek

For the first time in FPL this season we have a double gameweek; Manchester City and Stoke will play twice. We pick five players that we think could be the difference in Gameweek 27.

So here it is, the double gameweek; don’t panic because here at AllSportsNews we’ve got you covered.

Because of their involvement in the cup, Manchester City and Stoke will both play twice this week and it’s a perfect opportunity to grab some extra points.

However, do be aware that Gameweek 28 poses an issue as neither of these teams are playing, so don’t go overboard with your transfers.

We’ve compiled the five Manchester City and Stoke players we think could have the biggest impact over the two fixtures.

Here are the fixtures in question.

Saturday March 4

Stoke v Middlesbrough – 15:00

Sunday March 5

Sunderland v Man City – 16:00

Wednesday March 8

Man City v Stoke – 20:00

Five Picks For Gameweek 27

Sergio Aguero - £12.7 million

Despite not scoring a Premier League goal since Gameweek 20, we’re backing the Argentinian to come good this week after scoring twice in City’s FA Cup replay against Huddersfield.

The striker is now back in the frame after Gabriel Jesus’ injury put him out for the foreseeable future.

Aguero scored against Sunderland and a brace against Stoke in Gameweeks 1 and 2.

Leroy Sane - £7.5 million

The winger, who is owned by just 1.5% of managers, has returned in three of his last four fixtures as well as scoring against Huddersfield in the week.

He is a cheaper option to tap into the City midfield but is still involved in many of their attacks.

John Stones - £4.7 million

The young defender has had more than his fair share of criticism this season and managers have voted with their transfers which has seen his price drop £0.3 million since the start of the season.

Which is perfect now as City have finally appeared to have shored up their defence, keeping two clean sheets in their last three games.

Lee Grant - £4.4 million

Stoke haven’t been as solid as they were in the Tony Pulis era but have a great chance to take a clean sheet against a Middlesbrough side that haven’t scored in their last three games.

Anything Grant takes against City at the Etihad will be a bonus, he could be in for a save point.

Joe Allen - £5.1 million

Perhaps a gamble but if you don’t want to load up on City midfielders or you can’t afford to; then Allen may be your best bet.

The Welshman has calmed down since his scoring run earlier in the season but did score against Palace recently.
