    • West Brom vs. Wolves

    • Burnley vs. West Ham

    Let’s take a look at the top picks for FPL Gameweek 34.

    Goalkeepers

    Following last weekend’s Carabao Cup success, Ederson (Man City) returns to action with a favorable fixture against low-scoring Crystal Palace on Saturday.

    Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) is also worth considering, with Spurs coming up against the league’s lowest scorers – Sheffield United.

    Illan Meslier (Leeds) will be confident of building on last weekend’s clean sheets against Man Utd when Leeds face struggling Brighton.

    Defenders

    Ben Chilwell (Chelsea) was the highest scoring defender in the previous round, notching a clean sheet and an assist against West Ham last weekend.

    Ben Godfrey (Everton), Timothy Castagne (Leicester) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Man Utd) are also among the league’s in-form defenders at the moment.

    Spurs defenders are likely to enjoy success against Sheff Utd this weekend, so Sergio Reguilon and Serge Aurier are worth considering.

    Midfielders

    Dwight McNeil (Burnley) bagged two assists against Wolves last time out, taking his tally for the season to two goals and five assists. He is a solid budget option.

    Ashely Westwood (Burnley) also got on the scoresheet last weekend, as did Matheus Pereira (West Brom) and Anwar El Ghazi (Aston Villa).

    Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) remains the highest scoring FPL player this season, boasting a whopping 221 points – three more than Harry Kane (Tottenham).

    Forwards

    Chris Wood (Burnley) was the star of Gameweek 33, netting a hat-trick against Wolves. He now sits on ten goals for the season.

    If you haven’t got Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester) in your team, get him in! The Nigerian has scored 14 goals in his last 14 appearances in all competitions.

    Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa), Timo Werner (Chelsea) and Richarlison (Everton) have also been among the goals recently.
