    Following a jam-packed Double Gameweek for four clubs in the previous round, it’s now the turn of Leeds and Southampton to enjoy two games in FPL Gameweek 25.

    First up, Leeds face a tricky away test against Wolves on Friday night, while Southampton host Chelsea at St. Mary’s on Saturday.

    Here are the Gameweek 25 fixtures.

    • Wolves vs. Leeds

    • Southampton vs. Chelsea

    • Burnley vs. West Brom

    • Liverpool vs. Everton

    • Fulham vs. Sheff Utd

    • West Ham vs. Tottenham

    • Aston Villa vs. Leicester

    • Arsenal vs. Man City

    • Man Utd vs. Newcastle

    • Brighton vs. Crystal Palace

    • Leeds vs. Southampton

    We also have the small matter of the Merseyside Derby this weekend, as well as a big all-London clash between West Ham and Tottenham. Elsewhere, Arsenal welcome Man City to the Emirates.

    Let’s take a look at the top picks for FPL Gameweek 25.

    Goalkeepers

    Emi Martinez (Aston Villa) added yet another clean sheet to his impressive tally this season, preventing Brighton from scoring last weekend. Villa come up against in-form Leicester on Sunday, but Martinez could easily achieve another shutout.

    Sheff Utd – the league’s lowest scorers – welcome Fulham to Bramall Lane this weekend, meaning Alphonse Areola could be in line for another clean sheet.

    Ederson (Man City) and Nick Pope (Burnley) are always worth considering, while it is also worth noting that Kepa (Chelsea) started – and kept a clean sheet – last time out.

    Defenders

    Ola Aina (Fulham) notched up a whopping 20 points in the previous round, contributing a goal and an assist, as well as attaining a shutout. In fact, any Fulham defender would be a sensible pick this week, with the Cottagers facing the low-scoring Blades.

    Burnley remain the second-lowest scorers in the league, so West Ham defenders Issa Diop, Aaron Cresswell and Ryan Fredericks could all prove to be solid picks for Gameweek 25.

    Joao Cancelo (Man City) and Matt Targett (Aston Villa) are both among the top five highest scoring defenders in the game, although James Justin (Leicester) – the third-highest scoring defender – looks set to miss the rest of the season through injury.

    Midfielders

    Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) added to his remarkable record by scoring against West Brom in the previous round, meaning the highest scoring midfielder now has 14 goals and ten assists in the Premier League this term.

    Other pricey midfielders include Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Raheem Sterling (Man City).

    If you’re looking for a solid budget midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan (Man City), Harvey Barnes (Leicester) and Tomas Soucek (West Ham) should all be in your thoughts.

    Forwards

    With a Double Gameweek for Leeds, Patrick Bamford will be confident of adding to his tally in the coming days. The Leeds forward has bagged 12 goals and six assists in the league this season, including two goals and three assists in his last four outings.

    Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa), Michail Antonio (West Ham) and Ashley Barnes (Burnley) are all among the games’ in-form forwards, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) looks set to return from injury this weekend.
