The ranks for fantasy EPL week 36 reflect a growing concern for Kyle Walker, uncertainty over squad rotation for Southampton and questions as Arsenal lumber to the finish line. For managers in Perfect XI and draft leagues without playoffs the Saints and Gunners have a second match this week (conveniently against each other) but not even a promising DGW could help. Maybe there are just too many questions. Maybe memories of Middlesbrough’s terrible DGW are tooooooo fresh.

Juan Mata may be back for United, but this match should come too soon for the midfielder to feature for more than 60′. The boys on Talkin Togga spent far too much time talking about United – give it a listen! – but injuries have opened up potential playing time and may create hidden FPL value.
