Well, gameweek 24 was a bit of a bumper week in FPL, mainly due to the double gameweek. All our picks for the week delivered points and we are hoping for another decent haul in gameweek 25. Here are our gameweek 25 picks:

Ryan Dunk (Brighton, £4.9m)

The Seagulls centre-back is the only one of our picks that is not a double gameweek player. However, he represents good value for money at £4.9m. Graham Potter’s team have been rock solid of late, keeping clean sheets in five of their last six league matches. In the one game that they did concede, Dunk scored a goal.

Those are pretty impressive statistics heading into a home game with Crystal Palace, who could once again be without star man Wilfried Zaha for the fixture. A trip to struggling West Brom in gameweek 26 looks to be a promising one for clean sheet points.

Raphinha (Leeds, £5.4m)

The Brazilian is looking like a bargain for Leeds this season. The winger has scored twice and produced four assists in his last five Premier League outings. He is certainly in form heading into a double gameweek involving matches against Wolves and Southampton. Looking at the double gameweek, Raphinha looks like one of the more attractive options. Some are even talking about the winger as a potential option for captaincy. A decent differential to Raphinha is teammate Jack Harrison, who has outscored him this season.

Patrick Bamford (Leeds, £6.9m)

The former Chelsea forward has been one of the success stories of the current Premier League season. Bamford looks to be a no-brainer pick for gameweek 25 and could even be a captain option, as he faces a double gameweek with a visit to Wolves before a home match against Southampton.

Bamford has scored twice and produced three assists in his last four top-flight outings. The gameweek 25 matches are not the toughest and the next two fixtures after the double are also not terrible.

Do you fancy Patrick Bamford to score in gameweek 25 and want to place a bet? Well, be sure to check out our betting page for the bookmakers we recommend for your bet.

Danny Ings (Southampton, £8.4m)

The Saints striker at first looks like a double gameweek trap as some have put it. However, Ings has the potential to produce in gameweek 25. The England international had been going through a goal drought until last time out when he scored against Wolves.

Ings is a streaky striker, who tends to score in streaks, so a double gameweek represents a good opportunity for the former Liverpool striker to add to his tally. A home game with Chelsea before a trip to Leeds may not be brilliant fixtures, but when on form he can cause any team in the Premier League problems.

Just like a dog is not just for Christmas, Ings is not just for the double gameweek. The forward faces Everton, Sheffield United and Brighton in the weeks following the double, which could offer the potential for a decent return in the next month.

Will any of our gameweek 25 picks be your FPL team?
