Double Gameweek 34 confirmed and three teams have doubles: United, Borough and Palace.
Should we start planning to get players in for these teams?
Borough and Palace aren’t immediately exciting although Big Sam’s team has responded recently by winning their past three games. Palace hardly have the most appealing pair of fixtures – CP will now travel to Liverpool before hosting Spurs. Middlesbrough face two vital relegation clashes, with a trip to Bournemouth preceding their home encounter with Sunderland. These might be good if they get a bounce having disposed of Karanka. Man United, meanwhile, will hit the road twice – making their way to Burnley before rolling up to neighbours City on Thursday April 27 in the final match of GW 34.
West Brom will blank in GW 34 as a result. Their fixtures are also pretty rubbish between now and then anyway so I’d be reluctant to add any to my squad. Though Brunt’s set piece duties must surely garner him some points soon.
For me, the above fixtures aren’t that exciting. Given United have 2 x DGWs coming up then it makes sense to get Ibra back in when he returns from suspension. But we still need to find out when the following are rescheduled:
Arsenal v Sunderland
Chelsea v Watford
Leicester v Spurs
Man City v West Brom
Southampton v Arsenal
Southampton v Man UnitedThink I’m going to keep my powder dry for now.
