We are already on gameweek 20 of FPL, as the gameweeks seem to flash by. The double gameweek in 19 gave us a decent return from our ones to watch, although Pep Guardiola’s rotation roulette did get us. We hope to do better in the midweek gameweek 20 fixtures. Here are our picks for gameweek 20:

Stuart Dallas (Leeds, £4.8m)

The Northern Ireland defender has gone through a rough patch in recent weeks, as his team have not played well. However, a game at Newcastle on Tuesday night gives Dallas the chance to add to his tally of three goals and three assists this season. His numbers show that Dallas offers an attacking threat and a game against shot-shy Newcastle seems to be the perfect one to add a clean sheet too. The Magpies have looked toothless in attack of late.

Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City, £5.5m)

The German midfielder has become a superb budget midfield option of late for FPL bosses. While City’s star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is sidelined, Gundogan could provide City cover for a fraction of the Belgian’s price tag. However, he is far more than just a budget enabler, Gundogan has scored four times in his last five Premier League appearances. The fact that he has been playing in a slightly more advanced midfield role has made him a big attacking threat.

The fact that City face a trip to struggling West Brom before a home match against rock-bottom Sheffield United make Gundogan a very attractive option for FPL bosses in the coming weeks.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton, £7.6m)

The England international enjoyed a stellar start to the season in front of goal. However, he recently picked up an injury that kept his sidelined for a few weeks. Before the injury, he was going through a slight goal drought. However, he returned to action at the weekend with a goal in a 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup fourth round.

With the likes of James Rodriguez and Lucas Digne now likely to be available to create chances for Calvin-Lewin, the former Sheffield United player may well once again look good value at £7.6m, even if he does face a home game with another high-flying team in Leicester on Wednesday night.

Michal Antonio (West Ham, £6.3m)

The Hammers forward only missed out on our gameweek 19 ones to watch because of fitness issues. However, after scoring in both his gameweek 19 fixtures, it is hard to ignore Antonio as an FPL option in gameweek 20. The England international has proven his fitness and is now basically the only central attacking option for David Moyes’ team.

At £6.3m, the 30-year-old offers very good value for money as a forward asset. A visit to Crystal Palace this weekend only adds to Antonio’s viability, as Palace have been poor defensively this season.

Do you fancy Michail Antonio to score for West Ham against Palace and want to place a bet? Well, don’t forget to check out our betting page for the bookmakers we recommend for your bet.

Will any our gameweek 20 picks be in your FPL teams?
