The match of the week, saw Liverpool come out unscathed against Chelsea, reviving their title race with a thrilling win at Anfield.
Gameweek 34 Review

Sadio Mane supported them with 9 crucial points while Alisson becker got 7 points for his clean sheet against Chelsea. Captain Rashford and vice-captain Aguero only got 2 points each with Ricardo Pereira and Aymeric Laporte also getting two points each. Richarlison finished the week with one point while Matt Doherty got 0 points from his side’s loss against Southampton.
Gameweek 35 Transfers
Richarlison is the likeliest player to be transferred out. The Brazilian has been going through a slump of sorts with only 6 points during the last three matches. However, his occasional outburst of points gives him enough value and makes him a better choice than James Maddison or Lucas Moura. The latter is expected to shine in the absence of Harry Kane and could be a valuable piece during the last four weeks.
