Fantasy Premier League tips: Who will you sign and sell ahead of GW35?
FPL bosses are treated to a bumper fixture list in GW35 with eighteen matches taking place over the next five days.
Manchester City have the toughest test as they look to continue their title charge, hosting Spurs at the Etihad before travelling to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Wolves players will be in high demand ahead of their home games against Brighton and Arsenal but single gameweek stars shouldn’t be overlooked.
Liverpool travel to Cardiff while Chelsea host relegation-threatened Burnley with both teams boasting the potential for big points – so who will you sign and sell ahead of GW35?
Top FPL transfer tips
DEF: Andreas Christensen (Chelsea) – £5.0m
Owned by less than one per cent of managers but set for a start against Burnley after Antonio Rudiger’s nasty injury against Liverpool.
MID: Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) – £6.3m
Just one match for Bournemouth this week but it’s at home against Fulham, with Fraser tipped to run riot after a goal and two assists against Brighton.
FWD: Andre Gray (Watford) – £5.9m
Troy Deeney will miss the next three matches due to suspension and Gray is the man to step in, with Watford likely to trouble Huddersfield and Southampton.
Fantasy Premier League tips: Andre Gray should benefit from Troy Deeney’s suspension
In-form FPL players
MID: Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur – £9.3m) – 8.7 form
An assist in three consecutive games plus a goal against Crystal Palace has seen Eriksen’s form skyrocket.
MID: Lucas Moura (Tottenham Hotspur – £6.8m) – 9.3 form
The Brazilian bagged a hat-trick as Spurs thrashed Huddersfield 4-0, and Moura should be rewarded with another start against Manchester City.
FWD: Chris Wood (Burnley – £6.3m) – 9.7 form
Three goals in his last two matches has seen Wood reach 10 for the season, while the New Zealand striker also has two assists in his last three.
Fantasy Premier League tips: Chris Wood is in excellent form for Burnley
Best-value FPL bargains
MID: Ryan Babel (Fulham – £5.5m) – 1.5 value
The Dutchman has been a rare bright spark in a torrid season for Fulham, scoring four goals and providing four assists since his January arrival.
MID: Nathan Redmond (Southampton – £5.3m) – 1.5 value
An FPL manager’s nightmare with his inconsistent performances, but two goals for Redmond last time out has seen his value rise.
DEF: Kurt Zouma (Everton – £5.0m) – 1.5 value
The 2-0 defeat to Fulham was a blip, with the Toffees having secure two consecutive clean sheets prior to that shocking loss – and Zouma was integral to both shut-outs.
Fantasy Premier League tips: Kurt Zouma represents excellent value for money

Who should I captain in FPL GW35?
Raul Jimenez (Wolverhampton Wanderers) vs Brighton & Hove Albion (H) and Arsenal (H)
Wolves are the only side which has two home matches this gameweek, and Jimenez is their most likely source of FPL points with 12 goals and 10 assists already this season.
Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) vs Tottenham Hotspur (H) and Manchester United (A)
Tough fixtures but Sterling is on fire and scored twice during the 4-3 Champions League victory over Spurs in midweek.
Likely to be handed the armband by thousands of managers who opt for form over fixtures.
TOP CHOICE: Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) vs Manchester City (A) and Brighton & Hove Albion (H)
A tricky selection with so many tempting double gameweek options, but Son gets the nod with the South Korean having picked up a suspension for the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.
Mauricio Pochettino is likely to field the forward in place of Harry Kane and any blank against City is likely to be compensated by a matchup against Brighton.
