Main objectives for Double Gameweek 26
Managers have made Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) their top priority for Double Gameweek 26 in the Fantasy Premier League.
Over 354,000 have already brought in the Egyptian from Liverpool for their home games against Norwich City and Leeds United.

Salah has produced 25 points in his meetings with these two opponents earlier this term and is expected to be the most selected captain.
However, with a total of eight teams scheduled to play twice, there are plenty of options to consider at both ends of the pitch.
The Scout’s expert panel identifies other players who can also reward managers with huge payouts in the next set of matches.

Yes Wout Weghorst (£6.5million) has gone into form he is the perfect choice as Burnley play twice in Gameweek 26 and Gameweek 27.
He was unlucky not to return against Liverpool and he has already secured an assist against Manchester United.
But don’t overlook Gameweek’s unique choices. The shape of Jarrod Bowen (£7.0m) means he should be a priority for managers as West Ham United welcome Newcastle United.

Arsenal matches in Double Gameweek are good and they also have one confirmed match in Gameweek 30.
Given their defensive record, Gabrielle (£5.3 million), Kieran Tierney and Aaron Ramsdale (both £5.1m) are on my watch list.
Liverpool assets are obviously prime targets as well.

Nick Pope (£5.4million) looks good for managers who need a new goalkeeper, while Son Heung-min (£10.7 million) and Harry Kane (£12.2million) are options if you fancy Tottenham Hotspur bouncing back from successive home defeats.
I still love Aston Villa players Lucas Digne (£5.1 million) and Philippe Coutinho (£7.3m) despite only playing once, as they face struggling Watford and I expect a reaction after their poor display at Newcastle.

Arsenal have some great Double Gameweek matches. I would double their defense with Ben White (£4.5 million) and Ramsdale because they are nailed to begin with. Just be careful because they have a Blank Gameweek 27.
