According to Andy Park (@FPL_Sonaldo), prioritizing players with Double Gameweeks is crucial for Gameweek 25, especially with Manchester City having a fixture in Gameweek 26 while Liverpool faces a blank. Park suggests that Erling Haaland (£14.2m) and Phil Foden (£7.9m) are must-haves for his team, with Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) also worth considering. For Liverpool, he highlights Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.5m), Diogo Jota (£8.1m), and Darwin Nunez (£7.4m) as essential picks. Lastly, from Brentford, Park recommends considering Ivan Toney (£8.1m).

Pranil Sheth (@Lateriser12) highlights Erling Haaland’s recent strong performance, playing nearly the full 90 minutes against Brentford, making him a compelling choice for the Double Gameweek. Sheth suggests doubling down on Manchester City players, as they don’t have a blank in Gameweek 26, recommending a triple attack strategy with Haaland, Phil Foden, and Kevin De Bruyne. Additionally, for Liverpool, Sheth favors Diogo Jota, who has been in excellent form, and Darwin Nunez, whose underlying statistics have been impressive.

According to Utkarsh Dalmia (@ZopharFPL), Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland, and Phil Foden emerge as the standout choices from Manchester City for the upcoming Gameweek. However, for Liverpool, the situation is more complex, especially with uncertainties surrounding the fitness of key players like Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah (£13.0m). Dalmia suggests that Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez are the current appealing options from the Liverpool squad.

Gianni Buttice (@GianniButtice) emphasizes the significance of strategic planning, particularly regarding investment in Liverpool and Luton Town assets, considering their blank in the subsequent week. Buttice suggests that one’s chip strategy should influence decision-making, indicating that they do not intend to use the Free Hit chip in Blank Gameweek 26. Consequently, they anticipate owning double Liverpool assets, while acknowledging that many managers may opt for a triple-up strategy.

Pras (@Pras_FPL) identifies his top targets for the upcoming Gameweek, prioritizing Erling Haaland, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, and Phil Foden. While acknowledging the appeal of other players such as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker (£5.5m), and Alfie Doughty (£4.6m), Pras categorizes them as “nice to have” rather than essential must-haves.

Harry Daniels (@FPL_Harry)

Harry Daniels (@FPL_Harry) stresses the importance of having Kevin De Bruyne in his team, noting that watching Manchester City without the midfielder has been stressful. De Bruyne is considered a top priority for him. Additionally, Daniels emphasizes the need to add a Liverpool attacker, suggesting either Diogo Jota or Darwin Nunez as viable options.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily) acknowledges the logic behind tripling up on Manchester City players for the Double Gameweek but suggests that choosing the third City player beyond Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne is debatable. To allocate budget for Liverpool assets, Bonfield is considering opting for Rodri (£5.6m), who is expected to feature in both matches during the Double Gameweek.

Additionally, Bonfield aims to have at least two Liverpool assets, with Diogo Jota likely to be included, pending further updates on Mohamed Salah’s status. Furthermore, Bonfield highlights Alfie Doughty and Ivan Toney as appealing options for managers seeking Double Gameweek players from Luton and Brentford, respectively.
