Wednesday

Arsenal v. Southampton

Do you see a problem there? Southampton and Arsenal both play Sunday and Wednesday. Why not have them play their first games on Friday or Saturday? You’re telling me the league couldn’t have slightly rescheduled those games a few weeks back to give them a little more rest? (Especially with both teams also playing Saturday, May 13.) Rubbish, I say, rubbish!

Even if the fixture congestion makes it impossible to guarantee two starts for your favored players, you still better be loaded up on Gunners and Saints!

My teams:

OFFICIAL: Cech / Alonso, Gabriel, Stephens / King, Sanchez (TC), Sane, Son / Costa, Gabbiadini, Kane / BENCH: Jakupovic, Clichy, Moses, Walker

FANTRAX: Cech / Bertrand, Koscielny, Stephens, Yoshida / Ozil, Ramsey, Tadic / Gabbiadini, Jesus, Sanchez

Here’s hoping for a better double game week haul from Arsenal/Southampton than the recent Crystal Palace/Manchester United/Middlesbrough double that left me wanting.
