With the league slowly reaching curtains, it has been paramount to occupy the team with regular starters. Ayoze Perez is transferred out and in his stead, Allan Saint-Maximin is brought in.

Tips and Tricks
- Team choices – Liverpool will more likely begin to give their bench players opportunities and therefore it would be an apt time to load up on the cheaper bench options from Anfield.
- Captain – Leicester, although currently in a slump has been bolstered by the return of James Maddison. Their strong second half showing against Everton is a prime example of their potential and Jamie Vardy is more likely to benefit from the return of the talismanic playmaker. Vardy would be an apt choice for captain.
- Defense – Manchester United have been steadfast and unrelenting in defense conceding only two goals in their four games after lockdown. Aaron Wan-Bissaka could also get an assist.
Top four battle is heating up. Manchester United are at home to AFC Bournemouth while Chelsea face relegation-threatened Watford at Stanford Bridge. Arsenal will aim to better their spot and gain ground as they go to Molineux to face the dangerous Wolves. Manchester City are away from home to Southampton while Liverpool are at home to Aston Villa. Tottenham will be hoping to put their misery behind as they host a resurgent Everton.
