This weekend starts a little early in the Premier League with Friday night lights returning. 

Tottenham visit West Ham in an 8pm kick off at the London Stadium and that has knock on consequences for your Fantasy team - in the sense that the deadline for this weekend's Gameweek 36 is not on Saturday as would be normal but Friday 7pm.

On this week's Fantasy Premier League segment with Eoin Sheahan and Tommy Rooney, they focused in on Sunday's fixture between Arsenal and Manchester United.

On the latter club, the advice is to steer clear as Jose Mourinho has already stated that he will be resting players who have featured regularly during April as he attempts to prevent fatigue given that they were in Europa League action away from home at Celta Vigo on Thursday.

On that one, Tommy says: "I wouldn't go near any attacking assets and no defensive ones either."

As for Arsenal, there is a dilemma around Alexis Sanchez as he has been a tad underwhelming.

As Eoin says: "He's only got one goal in his last six Gameweeks. So there's huge concerns about him. At €11.5 million, I'm not sure he's worth it and I think Mesut Ozil at €9.4 million is going to give you just as much as Sanchez if not more really. Two goals and two assists in his last six."
