GW33 Scout Picks

Everton and Crystal Palace both have a double gameweek this week, with another double for each team in gameweek 34. Then they both have a week off in 35.

Both of their defences have been pretty awful. No stand out contenders to pick here. Everton's Joel Robles might still be available in your league and might be worth going for in goal. Coleman is a good option in defence if you can get your hands on him. He's an attacking threat and with Everton playing Watford and Palace, they have a chance of 2 clean sheets (unlikely given their awful defensive form however.)

Further up the field, Lukaku is the stand out pick with 18 goals this season, but he won't be able to get your hands on. Barkley is another who will definitely be owned in your league. If for some reason Lennon hasn't been picked, he's a must have for the two double gameweeks.

As far as Palace goes, the interesting players are Cabaye (on penalties and set pieces), Zaha, Bolasie, and Puncheon. Connor Wickham is back from injury and was in good form before he got injured, but with 4 games in 2 weeks and only just coming back from injury, he'll probably get rotated. Dann is a good defensive option although someone has mostly likely already got him. CPL could keep a clean sheet against Norwich in their first game of the week.

Other players to keep an eye on are Man United players. They haven't been great this year, but have a very good double gameweek coming up with games against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace. Even Van Gaal's United can surely score a few goals against that opposition. Someone like Lingaard might be worth getting your hands on now already before he gets snapped up next weekend.

Other teams to load up on next week are Arsenal and Liverpool. Both teams play twice in GW34 and don't have a blank in GW35. Both have a lot of reason to win. The next few weeks will shape their respective seasons.
