Pep Guardiola’s side have back-to-back double gameweeks and all four of those matches are at fortress Etihad. Yikes.Elsewhere, Aston Villa’s fixtures stand out as they face two of the most porous backlines in the division in Leeds and Sheffield United, although judging by Sunday’s defeat to Leicester City, the injury-enforced absence of the talismanic Jack Grealish weakens their attack considerably.Everton, buoyed by their derby day heroics also have a couple of promising matches at home to Southampton and away to West Brom, while Spurs have to take maximum points from matches against Burnley and Fulham to keep their slim hopes of a top four place alive.Here are i‘s top picks for Double Gameweek 26.Harry Kane (Tottenham)Tottenham are in a pickle alright. Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham means that they have lost five of their previous six Premier League matches and collected only 11 points from their last 12. A bristling Jose Mourinho went on the defensive post-match, which rarely bodes well for anybody. Read More The case for Tottenham retaining Jose Mourinho is diminishing by the week Still, despite all their problems, there were signs of life for Spurs fans to cling onto at the London Stadium, particularly during the second half. Harry Kane was lively, if a tad wasteful, firing off six shots on goal and flashing a couple of delicious passes across Lukasz Fabianski’s goalmouth that were begging to be converted.Since making a surprise return to action against West Brom in Gameweek 23, Kane has had 13 efforts on goal, the joint-most in the division alongside Leicester’s James Maddison. Kane has scored six goals and registered three assists in his last four matches against Burnley and was on target in the 1-1 draw with Fulham in December.Price: £11.1m Points: 155Ricardo Pereira (Leicester)James Justin was one of the breakout stars of the Premier League and FPL season before a knee injury curtailed his progress. Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne’s timely returns to fitness have at least helped Brendan Rodgers compensate for Justin’s absence.

.Listed as a defender on FPL, Pereira was deployed on the right wing during Sunday’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa and he showed plenty of attacking promise at Villa Park, having three shots on goal and creating two chances during his 76 minutes on the pitch.Ricardo Pereira has started Leicester’s last four Premier League matches (Photo: Getty)Price: £5.9m Points: 17Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa)Ollie Watkins has enjoyed an impressive debut campaign in the Premier League since making a big-money move to Aston Villa from Brentford last summer, top-scoring for the Villans with 10 goals and weighing in with a couple of assists for good measure.The 25-year-old has been provided with a steady stream of chances by his creative teammates throughout the season, as shown by his 65 shots on goal so far, a total which ranks sixth in the Premier League amongst all players.Although Watkins has blanked in back-to-back matches, he looks a good bet to get back on the goalscoring trail this week considering he’s up against Leeds United and Sheffield United, both of whom rank in the bottom five for goals conceded.Price: £6.5m Points: 104Lucas Digne (Everton)Everton are a funny old team at the moment. Over the past six games, they have been thoroughly outclassed and beaten at home by both Newcastle and Fulham, yet they have also won away to Leeds and Liverpool and taken a point off Manchester United at Old Trafford in that period.Carlo Ancelotti will hope that the magnitude of Saturday’s win at Anfield – Everton’s first there since 1999 – can galvanise his side’s European push. The Toffees certainly have a nice run coming up with games against Southampton, West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace in their next five.Lucas Digne earned seven points during Everton’s 2-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday (Photo: Getty)Despite missing a third of Everton’s games this season due to injury, Lucas Digne ranks joint-top among defenders for Premier League assists with six, alongside West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell. If Everton can build upon their titanic defensive display in the Merseyside derby, Digne can score big at both ends of the pitch.Price: £6.1m Points: 60Kevin De Bruyne (Man City)It is a testament to the quality of Manchester City’s squad that they have not even missed arguably the best player in the country while he has been injured over the past few weeks. Between Gameweeks 20 and 24 in which Kevin De Bruyne didn’t feature, City won all five games at an aggregate score of 15-1.But as much as City have been brilliant and Ilkay Gundogan has gone all Super Saiyan without De Bruyne, it never hurts to have a player of his quality available for selection. After giving him a late run-out against Everton, Guardiola chucked De Bruyne back into his starting XI against Arsenal and it was as if he’d never been gone at all.Although he didn’t register any FPL returns, De Bruyne created three chances and attempted three shots on goal before being taken off just past the hour mark. Owned by just over 11 per cent of FPL managers, it makes sense to beat the inevitable rush for De Bruyne by getting to the front of the queue early.Price: £11.8m Points: 99Want more tips?
