Premier League fantasy - Making the best of the double gameweek

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson reveals his top three players to pick for your fantasy team this week.

Just five weeks left in the Premier League season and we've reached what could prove to be a pivotal gameweek as four teams play twice.

Off the back of the FA Cup semifinal weekend, when transfer tactics really came to the fore, now it's a case of making the most of these double fixtures while taking into account both form and future matches.

Remember, players will score points for both fixtures in this gameweek, and captains will score double points in each too.

Branislav Ivanovic has been the standout fantasy defender of the season.

Premier League fantasy - dealing with the blank FA Cup weekend

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson highlights his top fantasy Premier League picks ahead of a FA Cup heavy weekend.

Just six gameweeks to go in the Premier League season and it's incredibly tight at the top of the fantasy leaderboard.

Only one point separates the top two teams, with a mere 25 points between first and seventh.

It means every transfer and selection decision is crucial, and now we have reached the point of the season when using transfers wisely can make a season.

It's FA Cup semifinal weekend, so six teams will be without a match in this gameweek. Arsenal, Aston Villa and Liverpool will all be in...

Ashley Young, Manchester United (5.9)

The Englishman was brilliant against Manchester City, with a goal and two assists.

Yannick Bolasie,...
