With just three remaining gameweeks in FPL, time is running out to bag the big points. Our ones to watch for gameweek 35 produced mixed results but were highly unlucky not to deliver more points. We are hoping to do better with our gameweeks 36, so here they are:
Joe Bryan (Fulham, £4.8m)
It may seem strange to select a player from a team already relegated to the Championship. However, the Cottagers seem to have now found their form under caretaker boss Scott Parker in recent weeks.
Bryan is definitely one that flies under the radar, but the former Bristol City star offers a viable option at both ends of the pitch. The Cottagers have kept back-to-back clean sheets against Everton and Bournemouth. A home game with relegation-threatened Cardiff , which Fulham are favourites to win, this weekend offers more potential for another clean sheet for Bryan and his teammates. The full-back has also been a threat going forward in recent weeks.
In gameweeks 32-35 he has produced seven goalscoring chances for his teammates, with only Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold creating more chances from a defensive position than Bryan. The full-back may look like a maverick choice. However, he may be a superb differential considering that he is owned by just 0.1 per cent of FPL teams.
Diogo Jota (Wolves, £6.2m)
The Portuguese attacking midfielder was the star of Wolves promotion campaign. Jota has moved into a central striking role in recent months. He has scored eight goals and also produced seven assists this season.
The former Atletico Madrid star scored last time out against Arsenal in a 3-1 victory. A visit to Watford this weekend could be a good opportunity for Jota to add to his points haul. At £6.2m, the 22-year-old represents a good value option for anybody’s FPL.
A home game with already relegated Fulham follows their trip to Watford, which looks a good fixture for him Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Fernando Llorente (Tottenham, £5.1m)
The Spaniard forward could well start this weekend’s home game with West Ham, which the side from north London are favourites to win. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could make changes to his starting line-up, with a Champions League semi-final against Ajax next week.
Llorente has produced three assists and one goal in his last four Premier League starts for Spurs. An away game at Bournemouth plus a home match against Everton remaining means that Llorente could add to his points tally. The former Athletic Bilbao striker represents a major differential at £5.1m. He is an ideal player to fit the third striker berth.
Ayoze Perez (Newcastle, £6.1m)
Perez is another Spanish cut-price striking option for gameweek 36. The former Tenerife striker is talented but has struggled for consistency during his Newcastle career. The 25-year-old has scored ten top-flight goals this season, four of which have come in the last two league games.
A trip to struggling Brighton in the late kick-off represents a great chance for the Spaniard to continue his hot run of form in the Premier League.
Who will be gameweek 36’s ones to watch?
