Five Fantasy Premier League tips for Gameweek 26

How was your double gameweek?

I must admit, I felt an overwhelming sense of guilt when Pep Guardiola opted to start Sergio Aguero on Wednesday night ahead of Gabriel Jesus, whom I'd advised you all to transfer in. However, that guilt soon vanished when the Brazilian poached in Manchester City's second against Everton.

Looking ahead to this Gameweek 27, there are some tasty fixtures lined up. The thigh rubber of the weekend comes on Sunday afternoon, when Chelsea travel to the Etihad in what will be considered a must win game for both sides. But there are plenty of points to be earned elsewhere, which brings me to this week's tips.

1. João Moutinho - Wolves, £5.3m

The Portuguese playmaker is the second most in-form midfielder in the league right now, and only costs a reasonable £5.3m. Wolves host Newcastle on Monday night, who will have gained a lot of confidence from beating Manchester City but may struggle to remain solid against the creativity of Moutinho and his partner in crime, Ruben Neves.

2. Victor Lindelöf - Manchester United - £5m

After a slow start to life at Old Trafford, Lindelöf is finally showing why United forked out more than £30m for him. Having established himself as United's first choice centre-back, he is enjoying a strong run of form, scoring his first goal for the club to snatch a point against Burnley at home. The Swede is statistically the most in-form defender right now, and has been selected by less than 5 per cent of FPL managers.

3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - Arsenal, £11.2m

Arsenal's next two matches are against Huddersfield and Southampton, giving Aubameyang a good chance to return to the top of the goalscoring chants. He's currently just one goal behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, who has 16 in the league this season. A natural poacher, the Gabon international should get plenty of scoring opportunities. You'd be a fool not to transfer him in for the next two gameweeks.

4. Glenn Murray - Brighton, £6.3m

It's astonishing that still only 3 per cent of FPL managers have Murray in their team. He is one of, if not the best option for a reasonably priced striker to complement more glamorous names up front. Brighton are at home to Burnley this weekend. Need I explain further?

5. Craig Cathcart - Watford, £4.5m

Watford play Everton this weekend. Cathcart scored from a set-piece last weekend. Only two teams in Premier League history have had a worse record conceding from set-pieces at this stage of the season - Hull and Watford - both managed by Marco Silva.
