FPL 2023-24 – Double Gameweek 7 Goalkeepers


As we enter into our first double gameweek of the season, we cast our eye over the FPL goalkeeping landscape.

Extending his lead the top of the point-scoring charts for players in his position, Bernd Leno (£4.6m) was the only goalkeeper to hit a double-figure score in Gameweek 6, as Fulham’s goalless draw with Crystal Palace yielded ten points for the German. He is now nine points clear of his nearest competitor and has two home fixtures in a row, starting with the visit of misfiring Chelsea in Double Gameweek 7.

With Burnley and Luton playing twice, it would be foolish not to at least consider the prospects of James Trafford (£4.5m) and Thomas Kaminski (£4.5m). Neither have kept a clean sheet in the Premier League this season, but with two bites at the cherry, they are worth considering. Aside from facing each other, Burnley take on Newcastle while Luton face Everton.

Andre Onana (£4.9m) owners finally had reason to celebrate last weekend when he kept his first clean sheet since Gameweek 1 in the 0-1 win away at Burnley. He followed that up with another shutout in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, and that bodes well for his Double Gameweek 7 prospects, when Man Utd host Crystal Palace.

Since replacing Aaron Ramsdale in the Arsenal goal, David Raya (£4.8m) has kept clean sheets in two of his three competitive games, with only the clinical Heung-Min Son having scored past the Gunners’ summer signing. Double Gameweek 7 sees Arsenal travel to Bournemouth, who have scored just once across their three home games this season.

With Newcastle now looking much more solid at the back following a run of three straight clean sheets in all competitions (at the time of writing), Nick Pope (£5.5m) represents a tempting option in goal. Newcastle’s Double Gameweek 7 opponents Burnley have scored the joint-second fewest goals in the Premier League this season, so another clean sheet for the Magpies looks very much on the cards.
