After yet another double gameweek, providing a whopping 13 fixtures, Fantasy Premier League managers have just four games to prepare for in gameweek 30 due to the FA Cup quarter-finals.

  • Wolves vs Leeds
  • Aston Villa vs Arsenal
  • Leicester vs Brentford
  • Tottenham vs West Ham

With only eight teams involved you may be considering playing your Free Hit chip, if you are fortunate enough to have not already used it during this protracted season.

Here are 90min's tips for the players to bring in this week...


1. Ivan Toney (£6.6)

This one is a no-brainer. After a slight goal drought Ivan Toney is back with a bang.

The Brentford striker has scored five times in his last two games – a hat trick and a brace – and you'll still get change from £7.0.

Toney's next task is to dismantle Leicester's ropy defence too, which should not be an issue, especially if the Bees get a corner...


2. Kieran Tierney (£5.1)

Arsenal's defence has been one of the best in Europe this season, and although they have some tough matches on the horizon buying into the backline could still be a smart move.

Ben White and Gabriel are both good options, as is stand-in right-back Cedric Soares, but the best value can probably be found in Kieran Tierney.

The Scot has good assist potentially due to his regular forays forwards and he is also a safe clean-sheet bet.


3. Son Heung-min (£10.9)

Antonio Conte recently admitted that Son Heung-min was 'undroppable' and you should probably adopt a similar approach when you select your FPL team this week.

Son has a pretty good record against West Ham, netting five goals in his 14 games against the Hammers, as well as seven assists.

He's also in good form, netting twice in his last three games.


4. Sergio Reguilon (£5.2)

From one Spurs left-sider to another, Sergio Reguilon is likely to combine with Son to cause Ben Johnson real problems this weekend.

Reguilon has been on a roll recently, managing a goal and an assist in his last two appearances.

With Ryan Sessegnon out injured too, he is almost guaranteed a start.


5. Raphinha (£6.5)

Leeds have looked considerably more cohesive since Jesse Marsch took the reigns from Marcelo Bielsa and one of the beneficiaries of this change has been Raphinha.

The Brazilian has had the shackles loosened somewhat out of possession and he has looked likely to score in each of his last three games.

He also grabbed an assist in his last game. Wolves should be afraid of his influence.


6. Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4)

Mid-price forwards have been difficult to find on FPL this season, but Alexandre Lacazette is emerging as a possible option.

Arsenal's January business means he is all but certain to start each of the Gunners' remaining games and he is racking up assists with amazing regularity.

A trip to Aston Villa is a winnable game for his side this week too, which could help him get on the scoresheet.
