Game Week 36 completes the 2022/23 season – make sure to use any remaining transfers!

This is an important public service announcement.

All Dream Team gaffers should be aware that Game Week 36 will be the last Game Week of the 2022/23 season.

That means the final day of the Premier League campaign falls under the same umbrella as the FA Cup final, Europa Conference League final and the Champions League final.

Sunday promises to be a tense day for Leicester, Leeds and Everton supporters

To be clear, every player will be subject to lockout from 4:30pm Sunday when every team kicks off at the same time, meaning Dream Team managers won’t be able to make any transfers after that time (unless both players involved haven’t yet featured of course).

May’s transfer refresh was the last batch of the season so Dream Team bosses should use any remaining transfers before Sunday’s games get underway to tailor their XI to the final fixtures.

Naturally, players likely to appear in the last round of league games plus one (or two) of the subsequent finals seem best placed to register serious points.

Man United host Fulham before yet another visit to Wembley, the site of their Carabao Cup victory a few months ago.

West Ham travel to relegation-threatened Leicester before their meeting with Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final in Prague.

However, Man City are once again the central protagonists as they will compete three times in Game Week 36.

Man City will play three times in Game Week 36

The Premier League champions visit Brentford on Sunday, face their local rivals in the FA Cup the following Saturday, and take on Inter in the Champions League final a week later as they chase a historic treble.

Pep Guardiola may opt for a second-string starting line-up again this coming weekend – the likes of Sergio Gomez (£4.6m), Kalvin Phillips (£1.2m) and Rico Lewis (£3.9m) were given rare starts against Chelsea in Game Week 35 – but even if that’s the case, the popular favourites will surely be reinstalled for the two major finals.

Whatever strategies Dream Team gaffers decide upon, it’s crucial everyone understands that (a) any remaining transfers should almost certainly be implemented before 4:30pm on Sunday and (b) there will be no transfers issued on the first Friday of June.
