FPL Gameweek 34 tips: Three stars you should be looking to bring in

Premier League betting tips

As the Premier League season draws to an end, FPL bosses across the country are scrambling for some much-needed last minute points.

A weekend that will be highlighted by Chelsea’s trip to Anfield on Sunday, Fantasy Football managers will be looking for a replacement for the injured Harry Kane.

Along with finding an affordable deputy for the Spurs talisman, we have found three stars you should be looking to bring in ahead of a hectic Gameweek 34.


Lucas Digne – £5.3million

With Everton putting in another impressive display in their 1-0 win over Arsenal on Gameweek 33, the Blues appear to have saved their best performances for the back end of the campaign.

Now enjoying a three-match winning run in the Premier League that has also seen the pick up victories over Chelsea and West Ham, Marco Silva’s side will have one eye on making a late push for the final Europa League spot.

Arguably the biggest improvement that the Toffees have made of late has been their recent defensive stability, Everton have recorded clean sheets in all of their three victories.

Even more impressive, Saturday’s visitors have recorded clean sheets in five of their last six Gameweeks.

One man who has played a huge part in Everton’s newfound defensive stability is left-back Lucas Digne.

Racking up an eye-catching eight points against Arsenal last week and earning a spot in the Gameweek 33 Team of the Week, the former Barcelona defender has become an FPL favourite this season.

A real threat from set pieces and already registering three goals and four assists in his debut season in England, Digne’s overall points tally of 123, sees him currently hold the fourth highest return of any player at Goodison.

Also finding himself sat in the top 10 for FPL defenders this season, the full-back should be confident of extending his clean sheet tally on Gameweek 34.

Traveling to an already relegated Fulham this weekend, Silva’s side should be looking to exploit the Cottagers’ continued struggles at Craven Cottage.

Suffering a 4-1 loss away at Watford on Gameweek 33 and securing their spot in the Championship next season, Scott Parker’s side have lost their last four Gameweeks on home soil.

Even more worrying for Saturday’s hosts, they have found the net just twice in their last four matches at Craven Cottage.

Owned by just 8.6% of FPL bosses across the country, Digne would be a wise investment for their favorable trip to West London.


Youri Tielemans – £6.1million

With the arrival of Brendan Rodgers last month appearing to spark a Leicester revival at the back end of the season, the mood around the King Power is the highest it has been in recent memory.

Putting in yet another dominant display in their 4-1 win over Huddersfield on Gameweek 33, the Foxes sit in pole position to secure that lucrative seventh-place finish.

Enjoying a four-match winning run and really starting to shine in the final third, Friday’s hosts have scored 11 goals on their winning run.

While the goalscoring exploits of leading goalscorer Jamie Vardy might be stealing the headlines in Leicestershire, Rodgers will be growing more impressed by the immediate impact that Youri Tielemans has had since arriving in January.

Once again finding the net in Leicester’s 4-1 win last week, the Monaco loanee is quickly becoming an FPL hidden gem.

Already collecting a points tally of 43 in just eight appearances for the Foxes, the 21-year-old is playing a huge part in Rodgers’ new attacking identity.

Picking up two goals and two assists over his past four Gameweek, Tielemans should be relishing the chance to come across a Newcastle side who have drastically struggled away from St. James’.

Despite all but securing another season of Premier League football and holding a seven-point buffer over the drop zone, Rafa Benitez’s side are coming off the back of a pair of defeats against Arsenal and Crystal Palace.

Remarkably failing to win any of their previous eight matches away from the North East, Newcastle have not picked up a single clean sheet on the road since a 1-0 win over Huddersfield on Gameweek 17.

With Leicester picking up a 2-0 win when the two sides met back on Gameweek seven, coupled with Tielemans being priced at just £6.1million, the Belgian international is certainly a smart transfer for FPL bosses.


Ashley Barnes – £6.1million

While many FPL managers will be turning to the likes of Sergio Aguero and Jamie Vardy to fill the void of the injured Harry Kane, we have found a far more cheaper option for those not willing to break the bank.

Despite many last month believing that Burnley were at the heart of a relegation scrap, the Clarets have begun to show some real signs of life over the past two Gameweeks.

Picking up a pair of impressive victories over Bournemouth and Wolves, Sean Dyche’s side now hold a commanding eight-point buffer over the drop zone.

With Burnley now finding the net in nine of their last 10 Gameweeks, many around Turf Moor have been impressed by the recent form of striker Ashley Barnes.

While the 29-year-old was credited with an own goal on the South Coast last weekend, Barnes did manage to find the right net in Burnley’s 3-1 win at the Vitality and now has six in his last 10 Premier League appearances.

Collecting an impressive overall points tally of 103, the former Brighton man is one of just three players in Lancashire to break the 100-point FPL barrier.

Also now scoring three in his last five Gameweeks at Turf Moor and owned by just over 2% of FPL bosses, Barnes should be relishing a showdown with a struggling Cardiff side.

Sat five points adrift of safety and many believing that they will be the third and final team to face the drop this season, Neil Warnock’s side have lost five of their last six top-flight outings.

Really struggling away from South Wales and conceding two or more goals in four of their last five Gameweeks on the road, an infrom Barnes appears to be quite the steal at just £6.1million.
