With the FA Cup semi-finals being played this weekend, it means that Tottenham amd both Manchester clubs do not have a match this gameweek. Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira, despite his side having a tricky home fixture against Liverpool, is a strong option for this round of matches after making four goal contributions (two goals and two assists) in his last four league appearances.


Luton Town v Brentford (11am)

Luton were comprehensively beaten at Manchester City last week to remain one point from safety.

Mads Juel Andersen, Amari Bell, Gabriel Osho, Dan Potts, Tom Lockyer, Marvelous Nakamba, Elijah Adebayo, Chiedozie Ogbene and Jacob Brown are out with various injuries, while Teden Mengi and Albert Sambi Lokonga are doubtful this week.

Brentford eased past Sheffield United to pull seven points clear of the drop zone. Aaron Hickey, Rico Henry, Ben Mee, Josh Dasilva and Christian Norgaard are out to injury, while Kristoffer Ajer is doubtful.
