As we go into the deep end of this year’s Premier League there are a lot of interesting narratives waiting for their conclusion to occur.

There is fight for the title as Manchester City and Liverpool who are arguably the best two teams in Europe go head to toe for the trophy.

There is a fight for European places and there is fight at the bottom.

Gameweek 34 sees Arsenal clash with United, while a tantalizing Merseyside derby set to unfold as well.

Manchester City and Watford will play out their contest at the home of the champions – the Etihad on Saturday.

So, with interesting matches lined up and interesting narratives waiting to unfold, who should you pick in your FPL team for this gameweek?

Let’s find out which players are we backing to perform well as the season heads deep into the business end!

Here are the top players you should be thinking about in having in your FPL team.

Ederson (Man City)

The disadvantage of selecting goalkeepers from top clubs, aside from their high prices, is that it may prevent a future move to an outfield player from the same club.

Managers should resist signing Alisson or Edouard Mendy, for example, because owning other Liverpool or Chelsea assets has far more upside. That is less of a concern for Manchester City, where rotation is common and points are shared.

Ederson is a lock to start, especially following Zack Steffen’s Wembley nightmare, and will try to add to his clean sheet total during a run-in that appears to be pretty uncomplicated.

Mo Salah (Liverpool)

Following a run of six games without a goal in all competitions and no goals from open play in the Premier League since Gameweek 26, FPL managers may have felt tempted to take a risk and sell the game’s leading scorer.

Big blunder. Salah provided a timely reminder of his abilities on Tuesday, scoring twice and registering an assist to lead Liverpool to a 19-point victory over Manchester United. Everton is up next, a team he scored twice against earlier in the season.

Teemu Pukki (Norwich)

This season, there have been so few good strikers to choose from that only six of the 65 players who have crossed the 100-point barrier in FPL are forwards.

Teemu Pukki is one of them, which is surprising given Norwich City’s imminent return to the Championship. Pukki has yet to register a double-digit goal total, but he has quietly been ticking along recently, scoring four goals and giving two assists in his last six outings.

Norwich have a good run of games to finish the season, and Pukki should be able to continue his hot streak now that the pressure is off.

Joao Cancelo (Man City)

With Manchester City playing on two fronts, Pep Guardiola may decide to rest some of his key players, and a home game against Watford provides an excellent opportunity to do so.

Guardiola’s full-back choices are now limited due to Kyle Walker’s ankle injury, which might be excellent news for Joao Cancelo’s owners.

If Cancelo starts against Watford, his prospects of scoring and defending are strong, given that Roy Hodgson’s struggling Hornets have conceded seven goals and scored one in their past three away games.
