We’ve arrived at a junction in fixtures, where some sides have more fixtures on the road, and others grabbing home comforts. Can they capitalise on this and what does it mean from an FPL perspective?

Ben Dinnery provides an update on Mason Mount’s injury. He looks unlikely to make the weekend but it’s not a long-term issue. You are probably wise to hold him given the amount of price rises he has seen.
The Athletic (@AlexKayJelski) reports that tests confirm Mason Mount did not suffer ligament damage in the Champions League although the midfielder remains a major doubt for this weekends' game against Liverpool. #CFC

Form has been the hot topic in the community this week, with FPL Hal providing a thread detailing how the data backs up the statement that form isn’t a thing. It’s an intriguing read.
1/ Okay, this is going to be controversial, but in #FPL:
*There is no such thing as form*
Hopefully I can convince you with data, this is going to be a (very) long thread
