Romelu Lukaku had a brilliant gameweek 28 as he returned 12 points. He is a shoe-in for the FantasySports.co.uk top 5 forwards of the week list. Who joins the Belgian? Let’s look and see.
Romelu Lukaku – Everton
Games: 27; Goals: 19; Total FPL points: 166
Lukaku was fantastic in gameweek 28 against West Brom. The Belgian tallied a goal and an assist in a 12 point haul. Everton play Hull in gameweek 29 and Lukaku should do well against the Tigers’ defence. Hull have given up the joint most goals in the Premier League, and Lukaku has the potential for double-digits.
Diego Costa – Chelsea
Games: 25; Goals: 17; Total FPL points: 154
Diego Costa’s last Premier League outing saw the Spaniard tally nine points against West Ham. After a week off of league action due to FA Cup commitments, Chelsea and Costa are back.
The Blues play Stoke and Crystal Palace in their upcoming games, and Costa tallied a combined 12 points against both teams earlier this term.
Jermain Defoe – Sunderland
Games: 27; Goals: 14; Total FPL points: 142
Jermain Defoe has kept Sunderland within touching distance of relegation survival. Unfortunately, the team is now slipping more and more each gameweek.
Burnley is on tap next for the Black Cats. Defoe and company lost 4-1 at Turf Moor earlier this season, but Defoe tallied seven points. At the Stadium of Light, Defoe is a great choice for your Fantasy Premier League or daily fantasy sports team this week.
Manolo Gabbiadini – Southampton
Games: 3; Goals: 4; Total FPL points: 25
Manolo Gabbiadini has taken the Premier League by storm and was a great piece of business pulled off by the Saints in the January transfer window. He has tallied four goals in three games, and with the form he has been in makes a great choice for your FPL or DFS team.
At only £6.8, Gabbiadini could be the points scoring forward you need to go along with Lukaku or Costa. Other FPL managers think he is a great choice as he has been on of gameweek 29’s top transfers.
Heung-Min Son – Tottenham
Games: 24; Goals: 7; Total FPL points: 100
Heung-Min Son should benefit from Harry Kane’s loss as the Tottenham star is out following last weekend’s FA Cup clash with Millwall.
Son hasn’t had a double-digit return since gameweek 14, but with Kane in such good form, Son hasn’t needed to be playing his best. Spurs have five matches upcoming that should be winnable, and Son has the potential to earn big points..
