Three more games to go. If you’re still fighting for this fantasy title, transfers are now more important than ever. Can you afford to drop points in favour of an extra change? Do you still have your bench boost available? Triple captain? How will you approach the run-in: play it safe with your tried and tested picks – Raheem Sterling, Virgil van Dijk – or take a couple of gambles in the hope of finding a game-changer? These are big calls to be making.
The weekend kicks off at Anfield on Friday night, where title-chasing Liverpool host Huddersfield. Six games follow on Saturday, the pick of which promises to be the FA Cup semi-final repeat that sees Wolves visit Watford, before a tantalising triple bill on Sunday ends with Manchester United hosting Chelsea in a battle to see which team can most balls up their efforts to make the top four.
There is only one place to start when making the call on a captain for the week, however – and that’s with the team hosting the Premier League’s bottom club.
