Can Manchester United finish Liverpool's winning run

FANTASY FOOTBALL EXPERT: See Jamie Vardy as a differential captain

For those like me who didn't own Riyad Mahrez or Kevin De Bruyne, it's been a scalding week.

It has always been the right call to double Manchester City's assets with Pep Guardiola's side in consecutive double weeks of play.

But Raheem Sterling was not what it now turns out to be the tip of a hat to those who fell on the right side of city roulette;

Liverpool's woes got worse and worse as Fulham left Anfield with three valuable points

Elsewhere, Manchester United have taken on local boasting rights by ending City's winning run - Bruno Fernandes can't do it anymore in big games, that's over.

But Liverpool, the less the better. They really face a fight for the top 4 after losing to Fulham at Anfield.

As always, I'll break down in this column what we've learned from the last round of the game, how we can best use the free transfer for our squads and the differences that can make the biggest difference from week to week.
& nbsp; Largest takeaways from GW27

Manchester City ARE beatable, they are human. For a while it looked like they would never lose a soccer game again.

Also a nod to Luke Shaw. He is in sublime form and could have held his own at City in a Man of the Match performance.

City will continue to win the league and their fortune is still a must, but it was a reminder that they can be beaten.

Less surprising was that Arsenal are still stuck defensively, as they hilariously proved at Burnley.

Granit Xhaka was back in the line of fire when he was blamed for Burnley's opener in the 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Jurgen Klopp's frustrations hit a new low after Fulham turned his side in Anfield last week

Arsenal assets, especially defensive ones, were viewed as damaged goods from the FPL's perspective and there seemed to be good reason to be watching performance in Lancashire.

Victories for Leicester, Tottenham, Chelsea and West Ham keep the top four races very interesting. Only five points separate the Blues in fourth and Tottenham on 45 points in seventh place.

Worryingly, Liverpool are in the top four seven times and have been hidden in eleven of their last 14 weeks of play. It's no surprise that FPL bosses are reducing their losses against Mohamed Salah.

Tripping to the Wolves on Monday night, Liverpool know another defeat could prove the final nail in their coffin as hopes for next season's Champions League dwindle week by week.

Harry Kane (Tottenham) - £ 11.3m

There's just something about Kane and a derby in north London - he absolutely loves them.

That didn't go unnoticed as it was signed by more than 350,000 FPL managers prior to a trip to the Emirates Stadium.

He's the most signed player for GW28 and for good reason.

Kane's 12-point return against Arsenal earlier in the season shows how important he could be as a captain.

Harry Kane's double pack in the Europa League convinced the FPL bosses to inject the money

His 19-point return against Crystal Palace was sensational for those who already owned him, and Kane's midweek braces in the Europa League suggest he might hit a purple stain.
