So, gameweek 28 saw just one of our four picks deliver. However, that one was Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who bagged a hat-trick. We are hoping for an improvement in gameweek 29, which has just four fixtures taking place due to the FA Cup quarter-finals. Here are our picks for the latest FPL gameweek:
Stuart Dallas (Leeds, £5.1m)
While Leeds have not been great in defence, Dallas has played in various positions this season, making him more of an attacking threat, scoring five goals and producing three assists too. Last weekend, Marcelo Bielsa’s team kept a rare clean sheet.
A trip on Friday night to Fulham looks like a potentially profitable one for the Northern Irish international, as only two teams in the Premier League have scored fewer goals than the Cottagers this season in bottom two West Brom and Sheffield United. A home game against bottom team Sheffield United in their next match also offers the prospect of a decent points return.
Lewis Dunk (Brighton, £4.9m)
The centre-back is a double threat, as Brighton can be relatively solid in defence, Dunk also offers a big threat in attack. His attacking threat has given the England international extra attraction to FPL assets. The defender has scored four goals this season, including in a 2-1 win last time out at Southampton. A home game against a Newcastle team that struggles for goals looks to be a good game for Dunk to add to his points tally at both ends of the pitch. There is one caveat, as the Seagulls next three league games are against Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea.
Jesse Lingard (West Ham, £6.1m)
The midfielder has looked like a different player since making a loan move to the Irons from Manchester United in the January transfer window. The 28-year-old has scored four goals in just six appearances for David Moyes team, while also producing two assists.
The England midfielder has played a key role in the Hammers recent good results. He missed out on the game against parent club United last time out. He will return for a home game against London rivals Arsenal this weekend. Their next game after that is a trip to out-of-sorts Wolves.
Gareth Bale (Tottenham, £9.6m)
The Wales international has shown flashes of his immense ability in recent weeks after a slightly slow start to his second spell at the north London club. The Real Madrid loanee has scored four goals and produced two assists in his last five league. appearances for Jose Mourinho’s team.
Bale’s effectiveness will of course depend on how the Portuguese head coach decides to set up at Aston Villa this weekend. The team from north London played in a pragmatic manner in a 2-1 defeat at rivals Arsenal in the derby in their last league outing. A trip to Newcastle in gameweek 30 looks like an attractive fixture for Bale too.
