FPL 2023-24 – Double Gameweek 7 Forwards

-

For the second gameweek in a row, no forwards reached double figures for points over the weekend, but there is still plenty to discuss ahead of Double Gameweek 7.

It’s taken awhile, but Ollie Watkins (£7.9m) finally has his first Premier League goal of the season with the Aston Villa striker scoring the only goal of the game in his side’s 0-1 win away at struggling Chelsea, which yielded nine points. Despite the time it’s taken him to find the net though, the fact he has registered four assists means that only three forwards have scored more points than the Englishman this season.

Matching Watkins’ nine-point score was Luton frontman Carlton Morris (£5.5m), who notched his second of the campaign as the promoted side drew with Wolves. Morris is proving popular in FPL circles this week as Luton have a double gameweek consisting of fixtures against Everton (a) and Burnley (H). Fantasy bosses who have brought Morris into their sides will be hoping he records an attacking return in at least one of those fixtures to justify his purchase.

Perma-captain Erling Haaland (£14.1m) got his customary goal in Man City’s 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest, but there was disappointment for owners of Julian Alvarez (£7.0m), who returned just one point due to being substituted in the 56th minute (as a result of Rodri’s red card). Man City face Wolves in Double Gameweek 7, a fixture that has the potential to produce major hauls for Pep Guardiola’s strikers.

Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez (£7.4m) appears to have nailed down a spot in Jurgen Klopp’s front three and the Uruguayan’s goal against West Ham in Gameweek 6 was his fourth attacking return in his last five Premier League fixtures.

In terms of under-the-radar options, how about Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m)? The forgotten man appears to be injury free at the moment, and made an assist in Everton’s 1-3 victory at Brentford last weekend. DCL followed that up with a goal in the Toffees’ midweek Carabao Cup tie, so he could be a canny differential in Double Gameweek 7, when Everton host winless Luton.
