FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard: Double Gameweek for Gundogan, Bruno Fernandes, Salah, & Kane

FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard Tips:

It's one of those weeks in the Fantasy Premier League which could make or break your season. With a double gameweek for more than half a dozen teams in the Premier League, FPL gameweek 26 would be the perfect week to use your Wildcard option.

We get straight into prediction mode on which players should you pick in your team along with captain choices for this week.

FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard: Goalkeeper Pick

Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa)

The Aston Villa man has been fairly consistent this season between the sticks. With Aston Villa having a double gameweek as well, at a price of £5.3, Martinez would be a great choice for you this week.

FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard: Defender Picks

Manchester City have kept the most no. of clean sheets this season in the Premier League. It would be a no-brainer to have a couple of solid City defenders in your team this gameweek. 

However, with Man City almost certain to win the title, you can expect some rotation from Man City manager, Pep Guardiola in his squad. Another cheaper defender with a double gameweek would be Aston Villa's Matt Target.

FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard: Midfielder Picks

With double gameweeks for Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool, and Leicester City we would recommend having one player from each of them in your team to keep the balance right. You would have already guessed by now the usual suspects for midfielder picks. 

Ilkay Gundogan was back last week against Arsenal after his injury and is in hot form this season. For a cheaper midfielder option, we would recommend you go with Leicester City's dynamic midfield maestro, Harvey Barnes.

FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard: Forward Picks

Tottenham Hotspurs and Everton are the other teams that play twice in gameweek 26. Everton on the other hand, would be over the moon with their impressive victory against Liverpool at Anfield last week. 

Both Tottenham and Everton welcome back their main men upfront i.e Harry Kane and Calvert-Lewin, respectively. Our third and final pick for forwards would be Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.

FPL Gameweek 26 Wildcard: Captain Pick

This gameweek we are certainly spoiled for choices to pick our captain. Harry Kane, Bruno Fernandes, Ilkay Gundogan, and Mo Salah would be our ideal options but we would recommend you go with Harry Kane or Ilkay Gundogan for this gameweek simply because of they have much easier fixtures as compared to Fernandes or Salah.
