Gameweek 34 has arrived and, whilst the end of the season draws closer, there are still plenty of FPL points up for grabs.

With the help of the Comparison Matrix, our FPL expert Holly Shand has picked out another three fantasy football sleepers you should be considering for the forthcoming weekend.

Who has a favourable fixture? Who is entering the form that could make them, and you, a title winner? Don’t bank on a hunch, let Holly steer you through the statistics behind our picks.

Trent Alexander-Arnold vs Fulham (A), Everton (A) – 8.3% ownership

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold returned from injury to feature from the bench in the defeat to Crystal Palace last time out and is one to consider given his status as the most attacking defender in the Premier League in recent seasons.

In points per match terms, he’s behind only injury flagged deputee Conor Bradley in points per match term among defendersthis campaign, gaining 4.7 points per game with seven goal involvements. He is heavily involved in Liverpool’s set pieces which is a key source of points.

Eberechi Eze vs West Ham (H), Newcastle United (H) – 4.6% ownership

Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze stole the show last time out scoring the only goal in the shock win against Liverpool, his third attacking return in six gameweeks since returning from injury. At just 4.0% owned, he’s set to be a big differential ahead of a pair of home games.

Eze is talismanic and his route to points is plentiful. He leads the way among the Eagles assets for shots on goal with 60 and key passes with 42. He is heavily involved in their set pieces, including penalties, with two double digit returns to date this season.

Matheus Cunha vs Arsenal (H), Bournemouth (H) – 4.2% ownership

Wolves striker Matheus Cunha scored a brace on his full return from injury last time out and is now their top scorer for the campaign, with 11 goals. He remains a big differential in just 3.8% of sides and will be a popular acquisition for anyone on Free Hit this week.

Cunha has the pedigree in these fixtures, having scored in the 2-1 away win against Bournemouth in Gameweek 9 and getting on the scoresheet in the 2-1 defeat at the Emirates in Gameweek 14. There’s also a possibility that he could be on spot-kicks.
