FPL 2023-24 – Double Gameweek 7 Midfielders

-

Gameweek 6 was a blockbuster one for midfielder with plenty of double-figure scores floating about, but can we expect more of the same in Double Gameweek 7?

Mo Salah’s (£12.5m) relentless form continued with the Liverpool star scoring ten points thanks to a goal against West Ham last weekend. The Egyptian has either scored or assisted in every Premier League game this season, and next faces a Spur side he has scored 11 career goals against. Only Man Utd have conceded more goals to Salah.

Facing off against Salah will be Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son (£9.2m), who is coming off the back of a superb brace in the North Londo derby in Gameweek 6. The South Korean has scored 36 FPL points over the course of the last three gameweeks, and that includes a blank!

Arsenal are suffering something of an injury crisis in attacking midfield at the moment with Bukayo Saka (£8.7m), Gabriel Martinelli (£7.8m) and Leandro Trossard (£6.6m) all doubtful for the Gunners’ Double Gameweek 7 clash with Bournemouth. Saka in particular would be a big miss, given that no other midfielder has accumulated more FPL points than him at this stage of the season. Fantasy bosses may instead look for returns from Martin Odegaard (£8.5m), who has scored three goals in all competitions this season.

Elsewhere, Man Utd’s Bruno Fernandes (£8.4m) recorded his second double-figure return of the season thanks to his fine goal against Burnley, while Man City’s Phil Foden (£7.6m) produced an attacking return for the fourth time in the last five gameweeks when he scored his side’s opener against Nottingham Forest on Saturday. Man Utd entertain Crystal Palace in Double Gameweek 7, while Man City travel to Wolves.

With just an assist to speak of across Gameweeks 3-5, some FPL managers were beginning to get cold feet with Kaoru Mitoma (£6.6m), and they will have been searching for replacements when they saw he wasn’t starting against Bournemouth last weekend, However, two goals off the bench in the second half is bound to restore confidence in the Brighton man. West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen (£7.1m), meanwhile, has been quietly racking up the points with five goal involvements in the Hammers’ six Premier League games to date. David Moyes’ men host Sheffield Utd this weekend, with the Blades still licking their wounds after a heavy defeat to Newcastle.
