Experts assess the best ways to navigate the forthcoming fixtures for Spurs and Man City

As we head towards Double and Blank Gameweeks, the Fantasy Premier League experts have been looking at how best to navigate the remaining fixtures for Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

Spurs play twice in Gameweek 32, travelling to Everton before hosting Southampton. They also have an attractive home meeting with bottom club Sheffield United after their EFL Cup final appearance.

According to FPL experts Sam and Lee Bonfield, of the FPL Family, these forthcoming matches make them worth the investment.

"Spurs do have a nice run of fixtures, so investing in them for the Double Gameweek feels sensible given you can hold them again until the end of the season," says Sam on the latest episode of the FPL Show.  

Lee adds that holding Spurs assets is particularly worthwhile for those with the Free Hit Chip in hand.

"If you're piling into Spurs because of the Double Gameweek, you can only bench three players in that Gameweek," he says.

"It's an advantage for those that have held the Free Hit chip this long. Bringing in Spurs for the Double Gameweek, taking them out as part of your Free Hit chip strategy for Gameweek 33, to see them return against Sheffield United, would be utopia."

With Pep Guardiola likely to continue his squad rotation, due to Man City's UEFA Champions League ambitions, Sam and Lee suggest it may be time to start thinking about cutting back on City players, especially as they blank in Gameweek 33. 

"I've got three [City players]," says Lee. "If I am thinking of piling into Spurs again - I want to get Kane on my Wildcard - suddenly I've got a Wildcard with five players who blank in that Gameweek. That's a big problem."
