They can’t all be 4,000-word long-reads on why the form of Ashley Westwood is key to Burnley’s clean sheet potential.
A little distraction and light relief amid the grave events elsewhere in the world can’t go amiss so, with that in mind, we’re launching a weekly Fantasy Premier League quiz while top-flight football is on an enforced break.
We’ll be operating on a season-by-season basis, starting with the current campaign and going backwards in time.
It’s not just FPL points we’re talking about here, however.
We’re harnessing statistics and images from our Members Area, asking questions on underlying numbers as much as Fantasy returns.
It’s just for “fun” (citation needed) and, of course, the answers can be easily enough sourced by accessing the Members Area or the FPL site itself – but where’s the satisfaction in that, we ask you.
Click ‘next’ below to start the quiz and to cycle through the questions.
We’ll return next week with the 2018/19 campaign.
