Fantasy Premier League expert and football tipster Holly Shand is back to look through the best FPL special bets on Betfair, looking at ways we can profit on Arsenal attackers,


Bet #1 - Bukayo Saka & Kai Havertz to combine for 12 or more FPL points @ 6/42.50

Arsenal come into their weekend fixture against Wolves having scored a leading 38 league goals this calendar year, with Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz their highest fantasy scorers in this period. They've amassed a huge 21 goal involvements between them in this spell, highlighting their output.

The reverse of this fixture resulted in a 2-1 win for the Gunners, with Saka on the scoresheet on that occasion. Wolves have kept just one clean sheet in their last ten league games, conceding 15 goals in this period. Wolves could be 'on the beach', while Arsenal have it all to do for the run in.

This pair have combined for 12 or more points in four of their last eight games, while they are predicted by AI to score a combined 22 points across their two fixtures. Given the explosive nature of the Gunners attack, I expect this target to be well within their reach.

Bet #2 - Bukayo Saka to score 15 or more FPL points in Gameweek 34 @ 11/43.75

Saka is predicted by AI to score 11.7 points across his pair of fixtures and scored a combined 13 points across the reverse fixtures, having picked up an attacking return in each game. While I expect him to be involved in the Gunners goals, this tally of 15 points does feel a little out of reach.


Bet #3 - Morgan Gibbs-White to score more FPL points than Dominic Calvert-Lewin @ 9/43.25

Nottingham Forest's Morgan Gibbs-White has been in great form since the international break, with two goals and two assists in four appearances. This purple patch has correlated with three home games in this period and a big push to survival for the club.

Everton are also in the battle to avoid relegation, with striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin finally managing a run of minutes, scoring goals in two consecutive games since the international break. He did miss the defeat to Chelsea though which sees him flagged with a hamstring injury.

That yellow flag sees his predicted points drop to just 4.2 points across Everton's two fixtures and he could be restricted to a one point cameo as his minutes are managed. If that's the case, then Gibbs-White on 3.8 predicted points looks well-placed to be the victor in this match-up.

Bet #4 - Cole Palmer to score more FPL points than Bukayo Saka in Arsenal v Chelsea (price to come on Monday)

Cole Palmer's form continues to go from strength to strength, and he's now vying with former team-mate Erling Haaland in the pursuit of the Golden Boot. He's scored a remarkable nine goals in four games since the international break and sits top in points per match terms.

We do need to be mindful that the majority of Palmer's recent hauls have come at Stamford Bridge, with only two double digit hauls on the road. The trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal will provide a different challenge. He did score a penalty in the 2-2 draw against the Gunners earlier this season.

Penalties have been a crucial part of his output, with only one quarter of Chelsea's spot-kicks awarded on the road this season. Since the international break, Palmer has outscored Saka by 51 points and so despite his predicted points being down at just 5, he has the potential to surpass Saka with ease.


Bet #5 - Mohamed Salah to score 15 or more FPL points (v Everton) - price to come on Monday

Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah has looked sensational since the international break but has fallen a little short when it comes to converting his chances. He sits second for shots with 23, but has scored just twice from six big chances on goal.

The Merseyside Derby is a fixture which typically yields goals: Salah scored a brace in the 2-0 win earlier this season, netting him 16 fantasy points on that occasion. He has scored seven goals in ten Premier League appearances against Everton, with three of those coming at Goodison Park.

Salah is predicted by AI to score 14.8 points across his two fixtures in FPL Gameweek 34, which means 15 points in the single game a little ambitious. On his day he is capable, reaching this target on four occasions this season, but a repeat derby performance would be some haul.


Bet #6 - Kevin De Bruyne to score 12 or more FPL points v Brighton (price to come)

It's set to be a pivotal week for Manchester City in the context of the season run in, with title rivals Arsenal and Liverpool playing twice before the current champions play again. Results could see City lose their lead at the head of the Premier League table ahead of their trip to Brighton.

Kevin De Bruyne has been in great form in his Premier League performances, with hauls particularly prevalent away from the Etihad. Two thirds of his goal involvements for the campaign have come on the road, notably scoring 18 points against Crystal Palace and 12 points against Newcastle United.

He is currently flagged with a small knock, having asked to be substituted in the Champions League loss to Real Madrid on Wednesday, so any backing here would be subject to him being in the starting eleven against Brighton. An uncertainty of minutes sees his prediction at just four points.
