Premier League Fantasy gameweek 27 preview

We are approaching gameweek 27 of the Premier League Fantasy Football campaign and time is running out for managers to climb their respective leagues.

Thankfully, this week is a double gameweek for Brentford, Brighton, Crystal Palace and Southampton, so we have picked our team accordingly around these fixtures.

Last week was a surprise for many managers, as Liverpool ran riot against Manchester United, winning 7-0 at Anfield.

We will hope for the same drama, with six games scheduled on Saturday, four on Sunday and the bonus of those final two matches of gameweek 27 taking place on Wednesday.

Goalkeeper - David Raya

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya is hard to ignore this weekend, especially with the Bees playing twice.

That is not all, though, as Raya is in superb form for Brentford. Thomas Frank has got the best out of the stopper and he has picked up six or more Fantasy points in three of his last five.

Not only that, Brentford's games come against relegation-threatened Everton and Southampton.

The Bees are unbeaten in five in the Premier League away from home and they are 17/10 to pick up all three points on Saturday at Goodison Park.

Defender - Pervis Estupinan

Pervis Estupinan is another player in gameweek 27 that will play twice and considering his recent form, he looks a great pick.

The left-back will head to Elland Road with the rest of the Brighton squad on Saturday before the Seagulls then play Crystal Palace.

Estupinan has scored six points or more in six consecutive fixtures and he can help Brighton pick up a clean sheet in a routine away win at 5/2.

The Brighton defender has scored 70 points already this season and his added goal threat makes him a strong choice this week.

Midfielder - Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford and co have got it all to do this weekend as they try to move on from their 7-0 thrashing by Liverpool.

While the Red Devils beat Real Betis 4-1 in the Europa League on Thursday, Erik ten Hag's side need to recover in the Premier League.

Thankfully for United, they host Southampton at Old Trafford on Sunday and Ruben Selles' men have lost three in four on their travels.

Rashford's 14 league goals in 25 matches prove he is the man for the job this week and he can be backed to score anytime at 20/21.

Rashford scored five goals to help United win three of their dour league matches in February and he has become deadly in front of goal.

As an academy product, last week's defeat to Liverpool will hurt him more than most and if he has the bit between his teeth, Southampton may be in trouble at Old Trafford.

Forward - Ivan Toney

As we have already mentioned, Brentford have two favourable fixtures this week, which means striker Ivan Toney becomes an automatic selection in our five-man squad.

Only Erling Haaland and Harry Kane have scored more goals in the Premier League this season than Toney and he netted his 15th on Monday as Brentford beat Fulham.

The Bees frontman has scored two goals in his last four games against Everton, while he has scored two in three in the Premier League.

Readers can back Toney to score first and Brentford to win at 7/1 and Sean Dyche's side will do well to keep him quiet this weekend.

Forward - Erling Haaland

Picking a team without Manchester City's Haaland at the centre of it has not worked out well for anybody this season and even though his goals have slowed down a little, he is still the man to pick in the final third.

Haaland has scored one in his last three, but two assists mean he has still picked up 16 points during that time.

He faces a Crystal Palace side who are low on confidence and, more importantly, who struggled to contain him at the Etihad Stadium in August.

Haaland scored a hat-trick during that 4-2 win and with Palace struggling at the minute, this weekend's fixture should end in a routine win for the reigning champions.

The Norway international is available at 11/4 to score two or more or 10/1 to score three or more.
