The Premier League gears up for another enthralling weekend in March as the season enters its crucial final third. Manchester City kicked off their challenging fixture run with a comfortable win over Manchester United last week, but their biggest test arrives this time around as they face league leaders Liverpool in a three-way title race that also includes Arsenal, who will be hoping for a draw between the top two. Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur appear to be the only realistic contenders for the top four, making their clash this week even more significant. The match between Newcastle United and Chelsea could be pivotal, offering stability to one project while raising further questions about the other. With so much at stake on the pitch, the excitement extends beyond the games themselves, with Krida fans fiercely battling it out for the top spot in their fantasy leagues.

Players to watch out for Gameweek 28

This Gameweek will see an additional fixture between Bournemouth and Luton Town, the game which was suspended due to the cardiac arrest of Luton’s captain Tom Lockyer. Fantasy managers would see this as an opportunity to reshape their squad, striking the right balance between maximizing points for this week and maintaining a consistent strategy for the coming months. 

The next paragraph will provide useful information on key injury concerns and suspension that could help fantasy managers plan their squads effectively:

Notable Absences

Due to loan restrictions, Arsenal will be without goalkeeper David Raya for their match against Brentford. Veteran defender Kieran Trippier remains sidelined with a calf injury, leaving a hole in Newcastle United's backline. Manchester City faces a midfield shortage in their crucial clash with Liverpool, as Matheus Nunes suffered an injury during the midweek Champions League match and will be unavailable.


Rodrigo Muniz. Source:

a. Antoine Semenyo (Bournemouth) has scored two goals in the last three matches for Bournemouth, proving his worth to his team. The forward would be eager to add to his tally as Bournemouth faces two promoted sides in the form of Sheffield United and Luton Town in the upcoming games.

b. Carlton Morris (Luton Town) scored for Luton in the losing cause against Aston Villa last week. He has made a great impression this season with his 8 goals and 4 assists and will get two opportunities this week to add further as Luton faces Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

Tip: For 11.6 credits (720.6 points), Fulham’s Rodrigo Muniz could be an exciting choice for any fantasy manager. The young Brazilian has scored 5 goals in the last 5 matches and has proven valuable for Fulham in the absence of Raúl Jiménez.


Eberechi Eze. Source:

a. Kai Havertz (Arsenal) has scored in each of Arsenal's last three matches in addition to assisting two goals. The former Chelsea midfielder seems to be settled at Arsenal and could play a great role in their title push.

b. James Maddison (Tottenham Hotspurs) was perhaps in contention for Player of the Season before his injury in November. The midfielder has made a decent return since and contributed to his team’s win in the last match in the form of an assist. Spurs would hope Maddison could guide them back to Champions League football next season.

Tip: For 10.1 credits (1191.2 points), Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze could be a decent transfer choice. The Englishman has proven to be a reliable attacking option for Palace particularly in the absence of Olise and they would hope he could show his ability against their next opponents.


Vladimír Coufal. Source:

a. John Stones (Manchester City) seems to be favored in the midfield position these days by Pep Guardiola where he continues to shine. The defender could prove his all-round ability again as they face their fiercest rival in the form of Liverpool in the next match.

b. Diogo Dalot (Manchester United) is among the few Manchester United players who have performed above expectations this season. The right-back assisted Garnacho’s wonder goal in their last match against Everton and would hope to contribute again as United face Everton at Old Trafford in the next match.

Tip: For 6.6 credits (995.6 points), West Ham United’s Vladimír Coufal could prove to be a safe transfer choice. The experienced right-back has chipped in with 6 assists this season and could play a vital role for his side in the match against Burnley.


Caoimhin Kelleher. Source:

a. Matz Sels (Nottingham Forest) was impressive against Liverpool for Forest and has been a good January signing for his club. Sels, who has kept one clean sheet since joining Forest, would hope he could add to his tally against Brighton who struggled to score against Fulham.

b. Martin Dúbravka (Newcastle United) registered his third clean sheet against Wolves in the last match. The veteran goalkeeper has been between the sticks in the absence of Nick Pope and would like to excel in high-profile matches such as their next match against Chelsea.

Tip: For 4.9 credits (274 points), Liverpool’s Caoimhin Kelleher could prove to be a great gamble. The Irish goalkeeper would probably play the most high-profile match of his career as Liverpool look to remain top of the League after their match against Manchester City and Kelleher could play a vital role in that.
