Fantasy Premier League has announced two more absolutely colossal double gameweeks

By Max McLean

Double games means double points, and double points could equal big prizes.

As the football season draws to a close, fantasy football managers around the globe will be getting ready for the title run-in – and it just got a lot more interesting.

That’s because the Premier League’s official fantasy football game is set for not one, but two consecutive double gameweeks – and one of them is colossal in size.

Arsenal and Southampton will play twice in gameweek 36, with Arsenal taking on Manchester United and the Saints playing Liverpool before both sides meet – but it’s gameweek 37 we’re interested in.

A grand total of 10 teams will play two games during the penultimate week of the season, offering the perfect chance to make a move in any private leagues you may be in.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will all play twice, with Watford, Sunderland, West Brom, Southampton and Leicester joining them in a bonanza of fantasy footballing.

So you’re going to want to pack your squad full of some of those teams’ players, right? Here are some suggestions.

Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez (£11.6m)

Chelsea: Marcos Alonso (£6.8m)

Leicester City: Jamie Vardy (£10.1m)

Manchester City: Raheem Sterling (£7.6m)

Manchester United: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£11.4m)

Southampton: Nathan Redmond (£5.9m)

Sunderland: Jermain Defoe (£7.7m)

Tottenham Hotspur: Christian Eriksen (£8.8m)

Watford: Troy Deeney (£6.9m)

West Brom: Gareth McAuley (£5.3m)

Here ends this public service announcement.
