Fantasy Premier League tips: GW30 captain picks plus transfer bargains

Gameweek 30 is almost here with a couple of huge fixtures and some tricky calls for FPL bosses, with not long left to make up ground during the run-in.

With an FPL deadline at 11am GMT on Saturday April 3, here are some of the key players you should consider for your team – and perhaps think about handing the armband to…

Goalkeeper

Edouard Mendy, Chelsea (£5.2m)

A safe bet for sure, but with Chelsea facing a struggling West Brom side and Thomas Tuchel likely to rotate ahead of a midweek Champions League tie against FC Porto, Mendy is a solid defensive choice for the Blues.

Defender

Luke Shaw, Manchester United (£5.2m)

The Manchester United left-back is the League’s in-form FPL defender. Shaw will have gotten a confidence boost from his England recall, and notched another assist with a cross for Harry Kane against Albania. Rested against Poland, he should be raring to go against Brighton – and that’s the sort of game where a double-digit haul seems likely in this form.

Matt Targett, Aston Villa (£5.1m)

The wing-back has been a good bet for an assist this term, and a home tie against Fulham on Sunday looks too good to pass up even with Scott Parker’s side in form.

Lucas Digne, Everton (£6.1m)

The Toffees have turned in some strange results this season, beating top sides one week and losing games they should coast just a few days later. Everton are coming off the back of two League defeats, but the international break was a welcome respite and should they return to form against Crystal Palace, Digne is a good bet for a solid score.

Midfield

James Ward-Prowse, Southampton (£5.9m)

The Saints midfielder will be coming off the high of an England squad call-up, while he was released ahead of the final game against Croatia as an injury precaution. With some valuable rest, Ward-Prowse is a tempting pick for a home game against Burnley where set-pieces could be key.

The Portugal star has blanked in three of his last five gameweeks, but United host Brighton on Sunday night. The Seagulls have been playing well of late if not scoring the goals they deserve – if they approach this game in the same manner, that could leave plenty of space in behind for Bruno. Oh, and he obviously takes penalties and free-kicks as well.

The midfielder returned a goal last time out against Fulham, and with a home clash against basement-dwellers Sheffield United, the Brazilian looks a good prospect for a tidy price.

Forward

Harry Kane, Tottenham (£11.6m)

It doesn’t take a genius to pick arguably the Premier League’s best striker in your side, but with a trip to Newcastle ahead of a double gameweek 32 against Everton and Southampton, it’s a good time to have the England forward.

Patrick Bamford, Leeds (£6.7m)

Bamford got a goal and an assist at Fulham in his last League outing, and, like Raphinha, will look at Sheffield United as a chance to fill his boots.

Ollie Watkins, Aston Villa (£6.6m)

Another player full of confidence after scoring his first goal for England, Watkins could be about to start another good run of form after blanking in his last seven League games. Fulham are in form, but Watkins will fancy his chances at Villa Park.
