Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho & The 5 #FPL Players You MUST Pick For GW35
DEFENDER: Luke Shaw – £5.7m (Home v West Brom)
With Champions League football now pretty much secured – curiously having lost their last two games – Manchester United can now build for next season, during which Luke Shaw is sure to be an important player for them.
A popular pick at the start of the Fantasy season, Shaw has ensured somewhat of a nightmare first campaign at Old Trafford, but having made consecutive starts he’ll be hoping for an injury-free run to the end of campaign and the chance to create a springboard into 2015/16.
MIDFIELDER: Philippe Coutinho – £7.9m (Home v QPR)
Liverpool may be limping towards the end of the season, but in PFA Team of the Year member Philippe Coutinho they have certainly had one of the most watchable players within it.
The Brazilian seems to specialise in performing well against QPR, too. He scored the winner the last time the Rs visited Anfield in 2013, and he was also on target in the madcap 3-2 win the Reds achieved at Loftus Road in October.
FORWARD: Christian Benteke – £7.6m (Home v Everton)
The key element behind Aston Villa’s improvement under Tim Sherwood, forward Christian Benteke will be fired up for the visit of Everton to Goodison Park as Villa seek to take another step towards safety.
The Belgian will be up against a side who are on a high following the win over Manchester United, but he and Villa are no respecters of reputations right now, and it would be no surprise to see him find the net.
THE OUTSIDER: Connor Wickham – £5.6m (Home v Southampton)
It was this time last season that Sunderland’s Connor Wickham suddenly found terrific form as he shot the Mackems to safety, and the signs are that he could be following suit in this campaign.
The forward has netted against Crystal Palace and Stoke in his last two games, and with Sunderland facing a Southampton side who are suddenly leaking goals at the weekend and as one of only two sides who have a Double Gameweek left this season, he could be worth a gamble.
THE CAPTAIN: Eden Hazard – £11.4m (Home v Crystal Palace)
With the title set to be secured, it would make sense to focus on a man who has done so much to bring it back to Chelsea.
Eden Hazard – the best player in the Premier League this season and by far and away the top Fantasy Premier League points scorer – will face up to Crystal Palace knowing that his first English title is within touching distance, and you can expect him to do all he can to secure it.
