Penalties are becoming more common over the course of this season and Milivojevic has benefited from Palace’s luck. Yahoo provide all of the statistics of penalties scored: our main issue last time out was getting those penalties converted by Harry Kane!

Those of you considering giving Kane the armband this week will be keeping an eye on the injury news from Ben Dinnery. If Peter Cech fails to overcome his calf injury, then David Ospina may deputise which could prove favourable for Harry.
Petr Cech is a major doubt for this weekends north London derby. The Arsenal goalkeeper is struggling to shake off the calf injury he sustained in a clash with Oumar Niasse at The Emirates during the 5-1 win over Everton. Nacho Monreal [illness] should be fine. #AFC

Leicester feature highly for fixtures in the Fantasy Football 247 Gameweek 27 preview. Will you be bringing Jamie Vardy into your side ahead of this favourable run? Mahrez is still absent from training this week.
This week it’s all about the fixtures. I look at who to back and who to avoid in the next three game-weeks! https://t.co/2HHuKTtx5P
