Let’s be clear: if you don’t have three Manchester City players on your fantasy football team, you’re not doing your job right

But with Aymeric Laporte fully recovered and both Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero returning from injury, which three to choose to maximize those precious city returns?

Because of their phenomenal defensive record, many managers, including myself, initially opted for the dual strategy of city defense – mostly two from Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and John Stones – as well as Raheem Sterling or Ilkay Gundogan after De Bruyne was injured But now they look so good on both ends of the field that I’m tempted to switch that to a defender and two midfielders

De Bruyne’s return shouldn’t detract from Gundogan’s incredible form – as Statman Dave pointed out on this week’s Fantasy 606 podcast, the two were gorgeous at the start of the season Match week against West Brom and scored four goals in the next six games, while De Bruyne filled in with one goal and four assists

So my currently optimal city trio would be Cancelo, Gundogan and De Bruyne, with Cancelo nodding over the central defenders to get the possible offensive returns

I wouldn’t worry about Aguero just seeing how his comeback goes, but he would certainly be considered if he can stay fit and play a number of games

And I haven’t even mentioned Phil Foden or Bernardo Silva, both of whom are in splendid shape but still have to queue behind Gundogan and De Bruyne

Now for the 25 Game week when many managers will bet on Leeds and Southampton players Both clubs have two games – Leeds host Chelsea at Wolves and Southampton before they meet at Elland Road on Tuesday

It’s no surprise Patrick Bamford, Danny Ings, Stuart Dallas and Raphinha are four of the top five broadcast players this week, and I wouldn’t put you off any of them. You don’t necessarily have to show Leeds clean twice, but you really sign Stuart Dallas because of his attack potential

Both managers are also very consistent in the line-ups they choose, so you hope to get the most out of all two games

For this reason, it is probably also advisable to appoint one of these asset captains in Leeds or Southampton I got burned last week supporting Bruno Fernandes in West Brom over Gundogan who almost certainly would have made this gaffe more damaging. He didn’t miss the Everton game. Bamford and Ings will be in 25th Game week will undoubtedly be popular captain elections

If you’re looking for a bit of differentiation with these two teams, Jack Harrison is a great option for Leeds as he has scored three goals in his last five Premier League games and owns only two, 8% of the managers, despite having owned Raphinha’s only 5% is also low

There’s a better differential in the Southampton squad, Takumi Minamino at 04% and Stuart Armstrong at only 03%, so these are two options worth considering

Elsewhere The Brighton Defense is definitely worth a look, especially given that it is one of only six teams currently in the 29th Game week which will be a home game against Newcastle

All defenders and goalkeepers Robert Sanchez have cost less than £ 5m and have five clean sheets in the last six games Dan Burn has not scored a goal for Brighton in 58 games but has seen a real threat from set pieces and Tariq Lamptey is on his way back soon and would offer the potential to attack the return on the right flank

Finally, at the time of writing, we’re still waiting for the Premier League to confirm some of the rearranged games that may turn game week 26 into doubles week

Hopefully the news will come on Friday at 6:30 p.m. GMT before April 25th Matchday, which means you can play your second wildcard with all that knowledge, then put together your team of 15 double game week players for a bench boost and hopefully a massive score in game week 26

The Triple Captain chip could also be a good option in game week 26, but don’t forget that you cannot play the wildcard and bench boost or triple captain in the same week – you MUST play the wildcard that week if you can want to use this strategy
