There are just three weeks left of Fantasy Premier League to bag those all-important final points and shoot up the league tables, so here we shall guide you through the do’s and don’ts for gameweek 36!
Everton v Sunderland
Although a recent slip-up against Aston Villa would have been a hindrance, the Toffees are enjoying a fine end to the season and should come out on top in this one. Sunderland have been poor all campaign.
STAR MAN – Leighton BAINES
One of the stars of the FPL last season, Baines should have no problem in the backline and has a hand in set pieces too.
Aston Villa v West Ham
The claret and blue clash is likely to produce another home victory for Tim Sherwood, since the Hammers have been lacklustre in their performances towards the back end of 2014/15. Villa are playing good football.
STAR MAN – Christian BENTEKE
The Belgian beast has found his shooting boots and is unplayable at times, being the predominant goal threat for Villa with his pace and aerial strength.
Hull v Burnley
Perhaps the biggest game of the weekend sees this encounter in which the Clarets need to win this six pointer or we will have to say farewell to them from the Fantasy Premier League. Hull need the points to stay up too so it could be feisty.
STAR MAN – Ahmed ELMOHAMADY
One of the best wingbacks outside the big clubs is Elmohamady, who should not have his defence troubled and got an assist in his defeat to Arsenal.
Leicester v Southampton
The great escape is nearly complete by the Foxes and Nigel Pearson’s men will be extremely upbeat for this one following their thrashing over Newcastle. The Saints still want to push for a European place though.
STAR MAN – Leonardo ULLOA
The Argentine showed what he was all about with his brace in his last outing, showing signs of his form from the early end of the season.
Newcastle v West Brom
Eight losses in a row for the Magpies is as close to embarrassing as it can get in the Premier League so their defence must be avoided at all costs. West Bromwich Albion’s defence on the other hand is enjoying three consecutive clean sheets.
STAR MAN – Jonas OLSSON
The Swedish centre-half is enjoying rare playing time and his experience is keeping goals out, as well as his goal intent we saw against Manchester United.
Stoke v Spurs
The top four is all but over for another year for Tottenham Hotspur, but they will want to finish strongly against an unsung Stoke side that are enjoying their football under Mark Hughes. A score draw is likely at the Britannia.
STAR MAN – Charlie ADAM
In contention for player of the month, Adam has been scoring from all over the pitch in recent weeks for Stoke.
Crystal Palace v Man Utd
A surprisingly disappointing past couple of games for the Red Devils has seen three consecutive goalless defeats. Pardew’s Palace are enjoying their time on the playing field and may still add to Van Gaal’s woes.
STAR MAN – Wilfried ZAHA
The classy winger may well be on the top of his game as he features against his old club for the first time since moving permanently.
Man City v QPR
A very memorable fixture in Premier League history, but it is Queens Park Rangers who will be looking to grab all three points in an attempt to stay in the Premier League for another season and not say goodbye to the fantasy shenanigans.
STAR MAN – Sergio AGUERO
Another Argentine frontman we expect to do well this weekend, Aguero is heading for the golden boot and should be scoring comfortably well.
Chelsea v Liverpool
A fantastic looking game on paper although Chelsea have already been crowned champions so they may not be playing as well as they could at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool still have an outside chance of making the Champions League spots.
STAR MAN – Eden HAZARD
The Player of the Season showed why he won this accolade last week with his title clinching goal against Crystal Palace.
Arsenal v Swansea
The Gunners are unbeaten in ten matches and will look to consolidate a second place finish for the first time this century, whilst Swansea have had their best ever season in Premier League history and may lay back a little.
STAR MAN – Alexis SANCHEZ
The former Barcelona man proved his critics wrong with a brace against Hull City and we expect more from this young maestro.
