Premier League Fantasy gameweek 26 preview

We have reached gameweek 26 of the Premier League Fantasy Football campaign, and this could be one of the most challenging weeks for managers to navigate.

The FA Cup results have altered plans for some in the weeks to come, but at least for this week, we have a clear structure in place, and things are returning to normal this weekend at least. 

There are seven games to come on Saturday, and two on Sunday, while Brentford's clash with Fulham brings gameweek 26 to a close on Monday evening. 

Unlike last week, there are no sides playing twice, so with a simple structure needed, we have picked out five players to include in your team this week.

Goalkeeper - Aaron Ramsdale 

Only three goalkeepers have scored more points than Ramsdale this season, and at £4.9m, he is a cheap and safe option this weekend. 

The Gunners take on Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, and they will once again look to maintain their five-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table. 

With Manchester City playing earlier on Saturday at 12:30, Arsenal will have to handle the occasion, but they should be able to against an out-of-form Bournemouth side. 

The Cherries have failed to score in six of their last eight on the road in all competitions, and while they did win 1-0 against Wolves last month, Arsenal will pose a much bigger threat. 

Only Newcastle have conceded fewer goals than Arsenal this season, and the Gunners should win to nil at odds of 5/6

Defender - Pervis Estupinian 

Brighton's home fixture against West Ham United looks favourable this weekend, and we have picked out Estupinian as our best Brighton defender. 

The left-back has scored 64 points for managers this season, and he has been an ever-present member of the Brighton backline in recent weeks. 

Estupinian last scored two points or less in Gameweek 19, and he has since scored 36 points. 

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi confirmed in his press conference on Friday that he has shaken off a muscle problem ahead of kick-off, and if he starts, he can cause problems for the Hammers. 

Estupinian has picked up three assists since Gameweek 21, and he should be able to get Brighton over the line at 4/5

Midfielder - Bukayo Saka 

Only Marcus Rashford has scored more points as a midfielder than Saka, and he is in the form of his life at present for Arsenal. 

The 21-year-old has scored 10 goals this season in the league for the Gunners, including three in his previous four under Mikel Arteta. 

His powerful right-footed effort against Everton on Wednesday helped the Gunners seal a 4-0 win, and he has to be included in any team going forward. 

With Saka likely to start as part of Arsenal's front three, we fancy him to get on the scoresheet anytime at 7/5, while he is 15/2 to score two or more.

Midfielder - Marcus Rashford 

As we have already confirmed, Rashford is the top-scoring midfielder in Fantasy Football this season and we have to continue to back him this week. 

The Red Devils return to league action this week after they won the EFL Cup last week, with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United securing the first trophy of the campaign and the first under Erik ten Hag. 

Rashford scored during that game, and he now has 14 goals in 24 appearances. The England international has caused problems for nearly every team he has faced since the start of February. 

The academy product has scored seven goals since 1st February and he faces a fragile Liverpool defence on Sunday. 

Rashford scored in the previous meeting at Old Trafford in August, and if he starts opposite Trent Alexander-Arnold, he may even grab two goals, which is priced at 8/1.

Forward - Harry Kane 

Tottenham forward Kane has scored 161 points in Fantasy Football so far this season, and he has every chance of adding to that when Spurs travel to Molineux to take on Wolves on Saturday. 

Julen Lopetegui's side are winless in three and slowly creeping back towards the bottom of the table, while Spurs have won four in five in the Premier League. 

Kane's form has been crucial to that, and he now has 18 for the season after recent goals against Fulham, Manchester City and Chelsea. 

Wolves' inconsistent form should play into Tottenham's hands, and Kane is never one to shy away in front of goal. 

He has scored two goals in his previous three matches against Wolves, and readers can get a price of 5/1 for Kane to score first and for Spurs to win Saturday's battle in the Midlands.
