Manchester City players dominate the community discussion in the Last Minute Gameweek 23 Tips.
Liverpool may have the extra fixture coming up, but it’s City who are in scoring form and have the more favourable game this weekend.
In the latest edition of the Fantasy Weekly podcast, I joined Mark, James and Dave to discuss plenty of Gameweek 23 tips. Top of the agenda was the situation at Leicester, who have been faltering since Christmas.

As many managers scramble to get the latest in-form players, it’s Wolves assets who have been reasonably high on the agenda to release the funds. In this latest thread, FPL Swede debates whether to sell Raul Jimenez for Danny Ings.
Time to sell your Wolves attackers? (Thread) 💭
After a few disappointing games, managers are now starting to lose patience with their Wolves attacking players…

Another solution for gaining valuable funds is to look to the very cheapest defenders. Manchester United’s Williams comes in at just £4.0 million and has been making his mark in the team, in the absence of Luke Shaw.

With the second season wildcard now available, it’s difficult to know when and why it should be activated. In this informative thread, FPL Kramer studies the merits of playing it early or saving it to use in conjunction with the doubles.
[WILDCARD PLANNING THREAD] ?⚽️❓? ?
When’s the best time to use your wildcard?
Now? Too early?
GW36 before the double? Too late?
My plan is (provisionally) to wildcard in Gameweek 33!

Marcus Rashford scored an impressive brace against Norwich last weekend but then went off injured. Expert Ben Dinnery provided an update on his condition, after he picked up another issue as a substitute in the FA Cup.
Did the decision to play Marcus Rashford backfire?
"Yes it backfired. You got to take them once in a while. He'll be tested in the next few days – we have to see for Sunday. He couldn't run. He struggled a little bit with his back and got another knock. It didn't help."

Finally, Smarter Scout looks at the rise of Danny Ings this season, after several seasons hampered by injury. Could he replicate his Championship form with Burnley or even improve on it? It’s all in the Gameweek 23 tips.
THREAD: According to our stats, Danny Ings 🏴 hasn't had this kind of form as a finisher since 2013-14 in the Championship with Burnley, and even then he wasn't as hot as he is now. What's changed to turn him into such a deadeye striker? Can it last?#FPL #SaintsFC
