Week FPL 34 FPL Matchups

Crystal Palace, Manchester United, and Middlesbrough all have two matches this week while West Brom don’t play at all. Southampton and Arsenal will have future double games coming up in week 36.

Crystal Palace and Manchester United are both viable options, however, don’t be surprised to see Zlatan rested for Sunday’s match, but available for Thursday’s Manchester Derby.

Crystal Palace’s recent form makes them excellent candidates to stack and Christian Benteke could be a sneaky captain for the week. Middlesbrough, meanwhile, should be completely avoided. Although, they would also make for some great differential picks considering that they will be avoided by most teams. They aren’t dead last in the form table, but are close to it. The only saving factor for them is their second match against Sunderland in which they are slight favorites. Defensive picks could be a good option for this week.
