Fantasy Premier League picks up again this weekend following a midweek filled with Champions League entertainment.

The Premier League is approaching its final weeks with the title, European qualification and relegation to be determined. More importantly, though, FPL leagues will be won and lost around the world, and picking the right goalkeeper could be the difference between ecstatic glory and embarrassing defeat.

But who should be on the radar between the sticks this weekend? Here are 90min's picks.


Emiliano Martinez (£5m)

No team has conceded fewer goals in their last six games than Aston Villa, who have conceded only twice in that time. Emiliano Martinez has been as key as ever, though a solid defence in front of him have contributed just as much.

The Argentina was outscored in GW30 only by Nick Pope, with the Villans set to host Newcastle on Saturday in what should be a mightily tight and fascinating fixture.


Jason Steele (£3.9m)

Sorry if this 'differential' is being forced down your throat a little by this point, but bringing in Brighton's Jason Steele gives you another competant goalie and a route into a top seven defence.

The Seagulls travel to face a Chelsea side who haven't scored a goal in any of their last four matches. They are without a league game in GW32 due to their involvement in the FA Cup semi finals, so just make sure you've got someone in reserve.

Jose Sa (£5m)

Jose Sa is the fourth highest scoring goalkeeper in FPL this season, being outscored only by Alisson, David Raya and Nick Pope.

He's jumped up the standings in recent weeks thanks to 12 points in his last two games. The Portugal international picked up two bonus points for his six saves at Nottingham Forest before shutting Chelsea out in the Wanderers' 1-0 win last time out.


When is the FPL Gameweek 31 deadline?

With the first game of the Premier League weekend being Aston Villa's fixture with Newcastle at Villa Park on Saturday at 12:30 BST, the FPL deadline is set at 11:00 before the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City are in action.
