The Blues’ FA Cup semi-final win over Crystal Palace on Sunday means their fixture against Manchester United, which had been scheduled for Gameweek 37, has now moved to Gameweek 34.

As a result, both Chelsea and Man Utd will have a Double Gameweek 34.

Thomas Tuchel’s side host West Ham United before visiting the Red Devils, who will travel to Arsenal beforehand.

Chelsea are now scheduled to play five matches in the next three rounds of fixtures, also facing Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United in Double Gameweek 36.

The Blues will now play once in Gameweek 37, while Man Utd blank.

Mason Mount (£7.6m) and Reece James (£6.3m) have been the most likely Chelsea players to produce big hauls this season, with five double-figure returns each.

Mount is the Blues’ form attacker, with four goals and two assists in his last three matches in all competitions.

If James can avoid rotation for the run-in, his average of 7.1 points per start highlights his potential as a captaincy pick.

Antonio Rudiger (£6.2m) offers the most secure route into Tuchel’s defence, while Kai Havertz (£7.9m) and Timo Werner (£8.6m) could prove handy differentials.

Havertz has five goals, an assist and 41 points in his last five outings.

Werner is certainly a riskier pick, but he has started Chelsea’s last four matches, producing 15 points against Southampton last time out.
