The FPL Gameweeks keep coming thick and fast, with Gameweek 34 on the horizon after the conclusion of Blank Gameweek 33.

Gameweek 33 was a sub-par one for a lot of FPL managers some popular FPL assets like Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min were not in action, while Bruno Fernandes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin drew blanks.

I had a decent Gameweek, scoring 55 FPL points against an average of 36, after handing my armband to Mohamed Salah. While I made a mistake by benching Cesar Azpilicueta and playing Jarrod Bowen, Kelechi Iheanacho's 12-point FPL haul in the last match of the Gameweek saved my blushes.

FPL managers will look to target teams that have some decent fixtures towards the end of the season. They'll also consider the motivation of various teams and FPL assets while keeping an eye on player rotations in teams like Chelsea and Manchester City.

Whatever transfers they make, they should do so before the Gameweek 34 deadline on Friday evening UK time.

Gameweek 34 Deadline: Friday, 30th April; 06:30 PM (BST) and 11:00 PM (Indian Standard Time).

Transfers

#1 Son Heung-Min for Bruno Fernandes

Son Heung-Min.
Son Heung-Min.

Bringing Son Heung-Min in one Gameweek after I sold him doesn't look pretty for my team.

However, a focussed Spurs team with a terrific final run of fixtures is too good to miss out on. Three of Spurs' last five games are at home, and Son has seven double-digit hauls at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season.

He'll look to finish this season the same way he started it and in the process, reward his FPL owners with invaluable points.

Selling Bruno Fernandes could be a risky proposition, but his lack of FPL output in the last seven Gameweeks makes it slightly easier. It could come back to haunt me, though, but Son's explosive FPL potential makes it worth the risk.


#2 Stuart Dallas for Pascal Struijk

Stuart Dallas.
Stuart Dallas.

Stuart Dallas looks like an FPL must-have for the final few games of the season. The Leeds midfielder is listed as a defender in FPL but has hauled big this season. With seven goals and three assists, he's the highest point-scoring FPL defender so far.

He's top in the Threat Index for defenders. With Leeds improving defensively, he offers excellent value both in attack and defence. Leeds take on Brighton, Burnley, Southampton and West Brom in their last five games. With a good schedule ahead, Dallas looks like a solid FPL pick for the run-in.


Best FPL XI for Gameweek 34:

Chips activated: None.

Point Hits taken (if any): -4.

Captain/vice-captain: Son Heung-Min (or) Harry Kane (or) Kelechi Iheanacho/ Jesse Lingard.

Goalkeeper:

Robert Sanchez.
Robert Sanchez.

Robert Sanchez (BHA) (£4.4 million) | Opponent: LEE (H): Brighton & Hove Albion will look to bounce back from their loss to Sheffield United when they take on Leeds in Gameweek 34.

Sanchez is likely to face a lot of shots and get some FPL points even if the Seagulls don't keep a clean sheet.


Defenders:

Trent Alexander-Arnold will look to help Liverpool keep a shutout against Manchester United.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will look to help Liverpool keep a shutout against Manchester United.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) - £7.5 million | Opponent: MUN (A): Liverpool and FPL owners of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson were left stunned and frustrated by Joe Willock's late winner. Nevertheless, Alexander-Arnold will look to contribute to the Liverpool attack against Manchester United while also tightening the screws in defence.

Stuart Dallas (LEE) - £5.2 million | Opponent: BHA (A): Dallas could get FPL points both in attack and defence against Brighton. Leeds' impressive defensive form combined with his goal threat makes him an FPL must-have in the last few Gameweeks of the season.

Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) - £5.8 million | Opponent: FUL (H): Cesar Azpilicueta is a bit of a rotation risk for this game, but Chelsea's impressive defensive form makes it worth the risk playing him.


Midfielders

Mohamed Salah will look to continue his goalscoring form.
Mohamed Salah will look to continue his goalscoring form.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) - £12.5 million | Opponent: MUN (A): Mohamed Salah looks like an FPL must-have for the final few Gameweeks of the season. This game is likely to be a cagey affair like most of Manchester United's games against the top six this season. But with Liverpool in a must-win situation, Salah could conjure some magic up front.

Adama Traore (WOL) - £6 million | Opponent: WBA (A): Wolves will look to bounce back from their humiliating loss to Burnley. Traore playing in a much central role looks like a good FPL differential against a leaky West Brom defence.

Son Heung-Min (TOT) - £9.5 million | Opponent: SHU (H): A fit and fresh Son Heung-Min should be in the goalmouth action for a Spurs side that'll focus on getting into the top four. Expect him to revert to his early-season form.

Jarrod Bowen (WHU) (MID) - £5.9 million | Opponent: BUR (A): I'm playing Jarrod Bowen ahead of Jesse Lingard in a differential move. The midfielder has done well playing out of position as a forward and should get some FPL returns in this vital game against Burnley.


Forwards:

Spurs will be eager to bounce back after their EFL Cup final defeat to Manchester City.
Spurs will be eager to bounce back after their EFL Cup final defeat to Manchester City.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) - £6 million | Opponent: SOU (A): Kelechi Iheanacho has been sensational over the last few Gameweeks and has offered tremendous FPL value. Expect him to continue his goalscoring run against Southampton.

Ollie Watkins (AVL) (FWD) - £6.4 million | Opponent: EVE (A): Ollie Watkins has been steadily delivering FPL returns over the last few Gameweeks. He'll look to get back on the scoresheet after producing an assist each in the previous two Gameweeks.

Harry Kane (TOT) - £11.4 million | Opponent: SHU (H): Harry Kane will look to continue from where he left off before sustaining an injury against Everton. He has the most FPL attacking returns of any player and will look to be on the scoresheet against the Blades.


Bench:

GK: Emiliano Martinez (AVL) (£5.4 million) | Opponent: EVE (A).

1st Sub: Jesse Lingard (WHU) (MID) - £6.2 million | Opponent: BUR (A).

2nd Sub: Luke Shaw (MUN) - £5.1 million | Opponent: LIV (H).

3rd Sub: Romain Saiss (WOL) - £4.9 million | Opponent: WBA (A).
