The big decision going forward is Mane, Salah or both. Adam Hopcroft crunches the numbers on their link-up play and concludes that one does not cover the other. Therefore, perhaps we need to squeeze both in our squads before the Double Gameweek.
Salah has 19 goals since start of 2019
Assists from those goals:
Firmino – 3
Robertson – 2
TAA – 2
Mane – 2
Mane has 25 goals since start of 2019
TAA – 5
Robertson – 4
Firmino – 3
Salah – 0
Hard to cover Salah/Mane goals unless you own Salah/Mane

Blank and Double Gameweek Guru, Ben Crellin, has all the key information for the upcoming fixtures. He’s also proposing the popular chip strategy to adopt, with the potential of using a Triple Captain chip in the looming double at the end of this month.
The popular chip strategy will be:
Free Hit in Blank GW31❄️
Wildcard in GW36
Bench Boost in DGW37 🔥
Triple Captain in a smaller DGW 🔥
But be flexible – wait until we get more info on the Blanks before committing to a strategy that you think will work best for your team.

Marc Rubinstein has provided a detailed thread on target ranks for the end of the season given current ranks at just over the half-way stage. The probability chart is particularly informative for fantasy managers to understand their limits.
An #FPL thread:
Over halfway through the season, what’s a realistic target for a year-end rank?
Based on last year’s data, there’s not that much overall movement in the rankings left. Correlation between GW21 rank and final rank is 0.86. pic.twitter.com/RKVi6PerFP

FPL Salah returns to the FPL Gameweek 22 tips with the bookies goalscorer and clean sheet odds. Aston Villa look set to have a tough time against Manchester City, with Aguero the tip. The big question here is whether he gets the game-time.

FPL General provides a word of warning when it comes to planning for the rest of the season. Much of the focus this week has been around Liverpool players, but there’s plenty of football to be played before their Double Gameweek in 24.
All the talk is about DGW24, you'd think it was this weekend.
Don't forget there's two Gameweeks before it.
Get a fixture ticker in front of you when making your transfers this week rather than having tunnel vision for 24 & triple Liverpool.

FPL Connect crunches the captaincy numbers in the latest metric article. Vardy and KDB are the front runners in the community, but this interesting analysis suggests that the armband would be better placed with a Liverpool attacker.

There’s been plenty of injuries reported over the last ten days, with the biggest news coming from Spurs, Aston Villa and Leicester. Jamie Vardy is back for the weekend, but Tom Heaton and Harry Kane are out with long-term injuries.
Brendan Rodgers confirms Jamie Vardy is "fine" after missing the last two games due to a tight calf. Wes Morgan (groin) will "probably" miss the next couple of games. Benkovic (knee) was a precautionary withdrawal in the cup. "He should return to training [this week]." #LCFC

Finally, Planet FPL provides a thread on an outside chance of a treble gameweek at the end of the season. There are a sequence of events that will need to occur for this to become reality, but it could impact chip strategies earlier in the season.
Although incredibly unlikely…
A Treble Gameweek remains a possibility
A TGW37 Treble is not an impossibility if one of Man City or Arsenal reach the last 4 in Europe & progress well in the FA Cup
Should it affect our DGW24 plans?
