It’s another double gameweek in FPL and there are plenty of points on offer. Could this week be the difference between glory and failure in your leagues?

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.

Diogo Dalot vs Burnley (H) – 6.8% ownership

Manchester United have one of the defensive fixtures of the weekend against a Burnley attack with just 37 goals this season. Diogo Dalot has been a consistent performer in the heart of their defence, involved in seven of their eight clean sheets in this campaign.

Dalot is the most attacking of Manchester United’s defenders, having had 24 shots on goal in this campaign, scoring one goal. He also leads the way among their backline for key passes with 21, delivering three assists from four big chances created.

Brennan Johnson vs Arsenal (H), Chelsea (A) – 1.0% ownership

Spurs winger Brennan Johnson has established himself as a regular on the right of the Spurs attack and has been their highest fantasy scorer since the international break, with three goal involvements yielding 21 points. He remains in less than 1% of FPL teams.

Spurs players are popular this week given that they’ve got a maximum six fixtures remaining for the run-in, including two double gameweeks. Johnson sits third among midfielders over his last four gameweeks for big chances on goal, with four.

Nicolas Jackson vs Aston Villa (A), Tottenham Hotspur (H) – 5.7% ownership

Having avoided a tenth yellow card of the season away at Arsenal in midweek, Chelsea striker Nicolas Jackson’s fantasy stocks are flying ahead of the double gameweek. He scored a hat-trick against Spurs in the reverse fixture back in Gameweek 11.

Jackson’s recent form has been on the rise too, with the side unbeaten in eight games before they faced Arsenal on Tuesday. Jackson’s standout performance was in the 6-0 win against Everton, where he chalked up three attacking returns at Stamford Bridge.
