Fantasy Football Tips: Three Transfers to make for Gameweek 26

It’s starting to hot up in the title race, with Manchester City and Liverpool now level on points heading into Gameweek 26 in the Premier League.

That means things are getting just as serious in Fantasy Football, with managers now under more pressure than ever to make the right calls ahead of their own title races in their respective leagues.

Below, we have picked our top three transfers to make ahead of Gameweek 26.

Marcus Rashford

Team: Manchester United

Value: £7.7m

Next Opponent: Fulham (A)

There are few players in better form in the Premier League at this moment in time than Marcus Rashford, who looks a transformed player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in recent weeks. The 21-year-old has scored six goals in his last eight appearances in the Premier League, as well as chipping in with an assist, and is flourishing as United’s leading man up front. This weekend, he and his team face Fulham away from home in Saturday’s early kick-off and will be confident of bagging goals when they face a side who have conceded 55 goals in just 25 games this season - the worst return in the top flight.

Paul Pogba

Team: Manchester United

Value: £8.6m

Next Opponent: Fulham (A)

For many of the same reasons as Rashford, we’ve gone with Paul Pogba, who has been another one of United’s standout players during their resurgent run of form in recent weeks. There aren’t too many players that would receive as much criticism as the Frenchman has this season, who is currently enjoying the best goalscoring season of his career, currently having 11 to his name as well as eight Premier League assists. Pogba got an assist last weekend with a sumptuous pass for Rashford away at Leicester and given the frailties of the Fulham defence, we’re backing him to find holes in their backline and exploit them.

Heung-Min Son

Team: Tottenham Hotspur

Value: £8.7m

Next Opponent: Leicester (H)

With Harry Kane and Dele Alli continuing to nurse injuries, Heung-Min Son has really stepped up and produced for Spurs in recent weeks, becoming their go-to man when they’ve needed him most. The South Korean international has scored two crucial goals in his last two outings, that have ultimately won his team five additional points to the one they would’ve taken without them. Son is set to feature once again against Leicester this weekend, doing so against a team that haven’t kept a clean sheet in five games and that he also scored and got an assist against in a 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium earlier this season.
