If we have learned one lesson from the past week in football, it’s that it really is never over until it’s over. One more gameweek of Fantasy Prem to go, which means your last opportunity to finish as high up the numerous mini-leagues you’re in as possible. And, pleasingly, all games kick off at exactly the same time: Sunday at 3pm.
The obvious place to start is with the title race, of course. Leaders Manchester City travel to Brighton knowing that a win – their 14th in a row in the Premier League – will see them retain the title for the first time in their history. Any slip, however, and Liverpool would secure their first ever Premier League with a win over dangerous Wolves at Anfield.
The rest of the European places look to be sorted: Champions League incumbents Chelsea and Tottenham face Leicester and Everton respectively, while Europa League finalists Arsenal visit Burnley and Manchester United host relegated Cardiff. With little else to play for elsewhere, goals and thus fantasy points could be in numerous supply – Southampton host Huddersfield, Bournemouth visit Crystal Palace, West Ham go to Watford and Fulham welcome Newcastle to Craven Cottage.
It’s back to the title race for our final captain’s pick, however – although perhaps not the obvious choice.
