Gameweek 29 is on the horizon, and with there only being 10 more gameweeks left, fantasy managers will look to get their teams high up the leagues. Here is our preview for the 10 fixtures this week:
Crystal Palace v QPR
A crucial early kick-off encounter down the wrong end of the table sees the clash of two of the newly-promoted managers take on each other. The Eagles should have enough with their pacey flanks against a side with the worst away record.
STAR MAN – Jason PUNCHEON
Puncheon’s hat-trick of assists a couple of weeks back must not go unnoticed so we shall hope he delivers the goods once again.
Arsenal v West Ham
The Gunners actually go into this game with fantastic form and face a West Ham side who have not won a football match in over two months. Arsene Wenger is slowly but surely cementing Champions League football for another consecutive season.
STAR MAN – Olivier GIROUD
The in-form Frenchman is scoring for fun right now in the league and is pouncing on every ball put through to him.
Leicester City v Hull City
Another massive game featuring two teams desperate to avoid the relegation zone, bottom of the table are hoping to climb off the foot and leapfrog the sides around them, and they may well do so if Hull are having an off day.
STAR MAN – Andrej KRAMARIC
The new signing has been handed a lot of game time lately and he will be looking to make that count this gameweek.
Sunderland v Aston Villa
Aston Villa enter this game coming off the back of beating West Bromwich Albion twice in a week, but both victories were not convincing and marred by a pitch invasion, so Sunderland will fancy their chances here.
STAR MAN – Fabian DELPH
The pacey English midfielder showed that he has a good eye for goal, and that he can also finish from a tight angle.
West Brom v Stoke City
This rather mid-table clash pits together two clubs that Tony Pulis has managed so he should know the opposition inside out. However, Stoke have enjoyed five wins in their last seven games and will look to make it six out of eight.
STAR MAN – Saido BERAHINO
The young talisman is extremely important to The Baggies’ season and will look to find the back of the net again.
Burnley v Manchester City
On paper, this is a fantastic Fantasy Premier League game, but cast your minds back to the reverse fixture at the Etihad where the Clarets gained a valuable point. If anything, this match showcases the unpredictability of the division.
STAR MAN – James MILNER
Milner is on a good run of goals and as City had no cup game, he should be fresh against one of the arguably lesser sides in the league.
Chelsea v Southampton
The Saints managed to grab a draw in the reverse fixture but Chelsea seem to be growing from strength to strength as the games go by. They just cannot stop winning and are grinding out consistent results.
STAR MAN – Eden HAZARD
This Belgian beauty has been a star performer as of late and is the magician behind many of the Chelsea attacks.
Everton v Newcastle
Toffees manager Roberto Martinez has admitted that his side are in a relegation scrap so they will be hoping for three points. Their opponents, Newcastle, effectively have their season over already so will not play at full strength.
STAR MAN – Romelu LUKAKU
Let us hope that another Belgian will bring his five goals scoring form from his Europa League tie against Young Boys into the domestic division.
Manchester United v Tottenham
This is a huge battle in the race for Champions League football next season as the Red Devils take on the Lilywhites. Spurs need to go for the win if they are to have a late surge but Van Gaal somehow keeps getting the victory.
STAR MAN – Harry KANE
Kane is now only behind Costa and Aguero in the pecking order for the Golden Boot so get him in your team!
Swansea v Liverpool
When these two sides met at Anfield, Liverpool just completely ran riot and Rodgers will hope his team improve on the disappointing performance in the cup against Blackburn by getting the victory here.
STAR MAN – Kolo TOURE
With Skrtel’s injury, Toure will feature and he hit the post as well as score a disallowed goal in his last game.
