Fantasy Premier League 2015-16: Gameweek 33

It was a goal-laden Gameweek 32 which saw Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City sail to 4-0 victories, with Pedro, Sanchez, de Bruyne and Pato proving a point. A harsh red card saw Payet's incredible free kick go largely in vain as Man United took advantage with a win over Everton to move above the Hammers and within a point of top four.

Elsewhere, Liverpool and Spurs battled to a draw at Anfield as Coutinho's great strike was cancelled out by Harry Kane's belter at Anfield, delighting the Foxes whose astonishing fairy tale went on. Wes Morgan headed in a peach of a cross from Fuchs to give Leicester a bigger points lead than Bayern, Barcelona and Juventus have.

Back to the present - This is the first of three double gameweeks remaining in the season, with Crystal Palace and Everton in the spotlight in this round before the following week sees half the league play twice. On we go.

Player Picks

Forwards

Lukaku (9.0) - After coming up short against solid Arsenal and Man Utd sides, Everton should have a much easier time of it in the matches to come. Lukaku will spearhead an Everton attack taking on the shaky Watford, Palace and Southampton defences in the matches to come. Get in.

Aguero (13.5) - The Argentine netted at Dean Court and should be expected to keep delivering as City prepare to face West Brom, Newcastle and Stoke in the coming weeks.

Midfielders

Coutinho (8.2) - As suspected, Coutinho delivered the goods against Tottenham. The schedule gets easier for Liverpool with 3 home games in the next 3 gameweeks, and the Brazilian should be at the forefront of all things good for the Reds.

de Bruyne (10.3) - Kevin de Bruyne has been an instant success following his return from injury, scoring against Bournemouth and PSG. His attacking output will be key to City's push for top four, and the schedule upto Gameweek 35 isn't untidy.

Barkley (7.1) - It has been a couple of months since any noteworthy return from Barkley, but it's worth gambling on him returning to his best form with a double gameweek against two of the league's out-of-form defences.

Iwobi (4.5) - The Nigerian teenager is making good on his chances, with two goals in the last two matches. With his FPL ownership standing at 0.6%, he is a potentially explosive differential pick for the coming weeks.

Defenders

Otamendi (6.5) - Otamendi is a sturdy choice at the back given 3 shutouts in the last 4 games and 13 bonus points over the course of the season, combined with a schedule that promises plenty of clean sheet potential.

Gabriel (4.3) - Arsenal's newfound defensive solidity means that it's worth considering Gabriel, who can pick up shutout points in the coming weeks while enabling a splurge elsewhere.

Dann (5.7) - With 5 goals and 2 assists over the season, there is plenty more Scott Dann can offer than shutout points, and is well worth considering as Palace have two double gameweeks in a row.

Keepers

Robles (4.3) - Everyone's on the lookout for bargain buys and with four games over the next two gameweeks, Robles can provide value for money with just appearance points.

Hart (5.6) - Joe Hart is back from injury and is a good choice between the sticks if you're looking for a reliable DGWer with potential for clean sheets.
