FPL Gameweek 26 Players to target.
Here are a few players that you can target in the gameweek 26
Aaron Ramsdale (4.9): Arsenal kept two clean sheets in their last two matches. Now they have an easy run of fixtures and their number one choice is a good pick in this run.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (4.7): Chelsea’s goalkeeper will look to end his side’s poor run. He has been solid since his return to the team and is a good option in a struggling Chelsea side.
Cristian Romero (4.9): The World Cup winner with Argentina is a regular for Antonio Conte’s side. Spurs will face Wolves and look to keep a clean sheet.
Wout Faes (4.2): He is a cheap option in the defence and features regularly for the Foxes.
Oleksandr Zinchenko (5.1): He has been a bargain for Arsenal and is leading them to a league title. After an assist in the last match and clean sheets in back-to-back games, the player will be hungry to add more points to his tally.
Gabriel Martinelli (6.5): The Brazilian has scored four goals in the last three matches. He is starting in the number nine role for Arsenal and is likely to continue doing the same thing against Bournemouth.
Phil Foden (8.0): The young English talent has made his way back to Pep Guardiola’s side. He has scored goals in the last two matches and will look to add more against Newcastle United.
Raheem Sterling (9.7): Chelsea are desperate for a win and so is Raheem Sterling. The English forward hasn’t been in the best of forms for the Blues and will look to add goals to his tally.
Casemiro (4.9): He is a bargain pick and can offer a goal or two.
Harry Kane (11.7): Harry Kane is looking to catch Erling Haaland in the race for the Golden Boot. He scored a goal against Chelsea and will aim for getting on the score sheet once again.
Ollie Watkins (7.3): The Englishman has netted five goals in the last five matches. He will look to extend his run to six matches.
