Not all teams in action are in the Premier League this weekend as the FA Cup has reached the quarter-final stage, but Gameweek 28 is a good time to make some headway in fantasy football if you keep your eye on the ball.
With both Manchester clubs in cup action, it is a big week on both sides of north London as Tottenham look to boost their top-four credentials at Wolves and Arsenal can go eight points clear at the top if they can see their way past managerless Crystal Palace on Sunday.
There is also bound to be lots more drama at the bottom of the table as the fight to avoid relegation intensifies.

It may come as a surprise that Arsenal have kept just three clean sheets in 15 home league matches this season, but there looks to be a good chance that they will produce one against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Eagles parted company with manager Patrick Vieira on Friday after an 11-match winless run and their 1-0 defeat to Brighton on Wednesday was the fourth successive match in which they have failed to score.
At least they were able to stop a rot of three outings without mustering a shot on target, but the Gunners should be mindful that they cannot slip up at the back, following their Europa League exit to Sporting Lisbon and their scare against Bournemouth when they came from two goals down to win 3-2.
Aaron Ramsdale continues to boost his England credentials and will be keen to put on a good show before joining up with Gareth Southgate’s squad, and the Gunners are 5/6 to win to nil at the Emirates.
Two league wins and progress in the Champions League have eased the pressure on Chelsea manager Graham Potter and his side should be confident about seeing off struggling Everton.
While the London outfit suffered a shock home loss to Southampton recently, Arsenal and Manchester City are the only other teams to win at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this season, while Everton have scored in just two of their last nine away games.
A Chelsea clean sheet looks likely and they are 6/5 to win to nil and there is a strong possibility that full-back Ben Chilwell will make a telling contribution.
He scored and provided an assist in the Blues’ 3-1 win over his former club Leicester City and the England defender is 6/1 to score at any time.
Leeds United face a key relegation battle at Wolves and, after he scored in last week’s 2-2 draw with Southampton, Jack Harrison could shine for the Yorkshire outfit.
That was the 26-year-old’s second goal of the season, but he has been a key provider for the Elland Road team with six assists, which puts him in the top ten in the Premier League list.
Leeds’ only league win in their last 13 games came against bottom-of-the-table Southampton and they are 23/10 to take three points from their trip to Molineux, while Harrison is 5/1 to score for the second consecutive week.

Manchester United confident of landing Harry Kane this summer
Tottenham have been struggling to create chances in recent matches and, with both Richarlison and Heung-min Son disappointing for most of the season, it should pay to keep faith with Harry Kane to spearhead their challenge at relegation-threatened Southampton.
The Saints fell to a 2-0 home defeat to Brentford on Wednesday and there is scope for Kane to cause havoc against a team who have won just one of their last ten league matches at St Mary’s.
The England striker was on target twice in last week’s 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest, taking his tally to seven in his last ten league outings and his ability to bring others into play means a return from an assist is perfectly possible too.
Kane is 21/20 to find the net on the South Coast and should lead the Spurs charge as they look to boost their top-four chances.
Another striker to get behind this week is Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins as Bournemouth head to the Midlands.
Villa have failed to score in just two of their last 17 home league games and Watkins has persistently been their most potent attacking threat.
The former Brentford striker has scored in six of his last seven Premier League matches and he can make hay against a team who have the worst away defensive record in the top-flight.
Watkins is 7/4 to score against the Cherries and he looks a strong selection this week.
