It’s tempting to release funds from those Manchester City assets who we loaded up on for the Double Gameweek, given their blank. However, their run of fixtures for the subsequent 4 games could suggest it’s a hold for now.
No GW27 fixture, so I have no City…and with no GW31, I probably shouldn’t be looking to get any in.
BUT. BUT…i’ll miss out on points in these decent looking fixtures! ⤵️

Leicester assets have seen plenty of transfer activity given their favourable run of fixtures, including in the blank gameweeks 31 and 33. However, Ben Dinnery brings some worrying injury news regarding some of their assets.
Ben Chilwell and James Maddison are doubts ahead of the game with Crystal Palace. Both players face a late fitness test. Leicester are without Daniel Amartey (ankle) and Marc Albrighton (hamstring) who may not play again this season. Mendy is fit. #LCFC https://t.co/cckOHhGs0b
