FPL 2020-21: Best Fantasy Team for Gameweek 36 | FPL Tips

Is it time to start backing Salah and Mane once more?
Is it time to start backing Salah and Mane once more?

FPL managers will have to face another quick turnaround as Gameweek 36 kicks off in less than 24 hours post the conclusion of Triple Gameweek 35. Bruno Fernandes was undoubtedly the top FPL captaincy pick for the Gameweek, and he justified that selection with a goal in United's first fixture. However, Mason Greenwood was the real star, scoring two goals in two starts with the main United FPL assets benched for the clash against Leicester.

The rearrangement of the Manchester United-Liverpool clash wrecked the plans of many FPL managers, including mine. With the opportunity to have a player play three fixtures too good to miss out on, I took an ill-advised -12 hit to bring in Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford, a move that I now regret.

However, with three Gameweeks remaining, FPL managers still have time to catch up in their mini-league and rise up the rankings. With the title and relegation spots decided, FPL managers should target teams that have something left to play for. The choice will be complicated by Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester City, and Manchester United having a Blank Gameweek.

Whatever moves FPL managers make, they should do so ahead of the Gameweek 36 deadline on Friday evening UK time.

Gameweek 36 Deadline: Friday, 14th May; 06:30 PM (BST) and 11:00 PM (Indian Standard Time).

#1 Pascal Struijk for Harry Maguire

I'm making this transfer to free up some funds for my move to get Calvert-Lewin instead of Iheanacho this Gameweek. Maguire's injury in the first game of the Triple Gameweek wrecked my plans, and I'm glad to take him out.

Struijk, meanwhile, has cemented his place in this Leeds United team and looks like a solid FPL bench option for the rest of the season. It looks like the ideal FPL transfer to make to get DCL in my team.

#2 Dominic Calvert-Lewin for Kelechi Iheanacho

While Patrick Bamford and Michail Antonio look like attractive options, Dominic Calvert-Lewin looks like the player to target towards the end of the season. Everton look to be gaining form at the right time and need to win every game to secure a place in the top six.

With two goals in the last two games, DCL has returned to form ahead of Gameweek 36. At £7.6 m, he's a budget-friendly FPL must-have for the final three Gameweeks of the season

Best FPL XI for Gameweek 36:

Chips activated: None.

Points Hits taken (if any): -4.

Captain/vice-captain: Mohamed Salah (or) Harry Kane (or) Dominic Calvert-Lewin/ Trent Alexander-Arnold.
