There’s a classic form vs fixture conundrum this week with Son Heung-Min. If he was scoring goals it would be straightforward but one in his last eight is a worry, even if he’s up against the top flight’s worst defence by a distance.
Bruno Fernandes delivered – eventually – against nine-man Southampton and could do so again for Everton’s visit to Old Trafford. Trusting Michail Antonio could be an effective play in yet another week without a stand-out pick.
As Tottenham’s issues are more to do with their attack than defence, they remain a safe bet for a clean sheet.
Three consecutive Chelsea clean sheets bodes well for the trip to Sheffield United. Brighton travel to low-scoring Burnley on the back of two shut-outs.
Doubles and Blanks
When making this week’s transfer, bear in mind that six teams now have a double gameweek around the corner after several postponed games were rescheduled.
Manchester City, Everton, Burnley and Fulham all play twice in gameweek 24, while Leeds and Southampton play twice in gameweek 25.
Mendy; Shaw, Rudiger, Cancelo; Son, Fernandes, Raphinha, Soucek; Antonio, Bamford, Wilson.
