Man City v Sheffield Utd (18:00)

The top rated team to keep clean sheet in Gameweek 20 are Man City, who face Sheffield Utd (H) in the final match of the weekend. They are credited with a 50.0% chance of keeping a clean sheet against the Blades. As always it's difficult to predict a starting line-up with Pep Guardiola in charge so if you're looking for defensive coverage, the safe option would be to go with goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (£4.8m) who will take the place of Ederson (£6.0m) after the Brazilian was sent off in Gameweek 19.

Right on the heels of the Citizens in terms of clean sheet rating are Premier League table-toppers Liverpool. They've now kept three clean sheets in their last three league matches and are predicted to have a 46.2% chance of making it four in four against Wolves (H) in Gameweek 20. Again, rotation could be on the cards but the likes of defender Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) and goalkeeper Alisson (£6.0m) should certainly start. There is a question mark over whether manager Jurgen Klopp will be tempted to rest Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m), fresh from his 24 point FPL haul in Gameweek 19 away at Leicester.
