It’s the penultimate gameweek of the 2014/15 Fantasy Premier League season and what a rollercoaster of a ride it has been for all of us. Ups and downs across the board, let’s try and help you all finish on a high.
Southampton v Aston Villa
Funnily enough, the early kick off involves two teams who still have plenty to play for at this late stage of the season. Southampton still want to achieve European football, whilst the Villa need to avoid the drop.
STAR MAN – Tom CLEVERLEY
I never thought I would be saying this, but three goals in three games for the Englishman has been a blessing in disguise.
Burnley v Stoke
Perhaps the Clarets will want to go out on a high despite relegation to the Championship next season, and to be fair they do go into this game having won their previous one. Stoke meanwhile are enjoying a top half finish.
STAR MAN – Danny INGS
With many clubs around the continent on alert, Ings will want to show what he is all about in the remaining games.
QPR v Newcastle
In a weird way, Newcastle look set to end the Fantasy Premier League season the way that they started it, which is right down at the bottom. Fortunately for them however, an already relegated Queens Park Rangers should not be too hard.
STAR MAN – Ayoze PEREZ
The Spaniard has been the bright spark for the Toon this season and goes into this one having scored in Newcastle’s last game.
Tottenham v Hull
A fantastic start to the campaign for Spurs seems irrelevant now as they push for yet another Europa League place. Hull are in huge danger of not being on the Fantasy Premier League next season and Steve Bruce will need to go all out.
STAR MAN – Harry KANE
The Englishman has many goals at White Hart Lane this season and he should be finding the net with ease.
Sunderland v Leicester
Two wins on the spin for the Black Cats has seen a remarkable change in fortunes for them as they may now survive. This is most probably the tie of the gameweek as both teams look to ensure survival
STAR MAN – Jordi GOMEZ
Out of the blue, the summer signing from Wigan has three goals in as many games for Dick Advocaat’s team.
West Ham v Everton
The Hammers have had a simply shocking 2015 judging by their first half of the season, and speaking of halves, the top half of the table is where Roberto Martinez would ideally like to finish the season inside.
STAR MAN – Ross BARKLEY
The Englishman has been a spark of delight as he grows into the first team frame more and more for the Toffees.
Liverpool v Crystal Palace
Palace have had a wonderful season, but perhaps Liverpool will look to finish strong as they have an outside chance of still finishing in the top four. Brendan Rodgers may even give some of the youngsters a go.
STAR MAN – Steven GERRARD
A legend of the game, Steven Gerrard is only available for selection on just two more occasions in Fantasy Premier League.
Swansea v Man City
The Swans will be buzzing following their victory at the Emirates, and they will fancy their chances of a victory against the no longer reigning champions. They lie just two points adrift of sixth position in the league.
STAR MAN – Sergio AGUERO
The top scorer this season is on course for the golden boot, as well as a place in our Fantasy Premier League sides.
Man Utd v Arsenal
A good tie on paper, but this could potentially be a dead rubber. Both sides look set to qualify for the Champions League next campaign, although this fixture has a lot of history within it, including that 8-2.
STAR MAN – David DE GEA
Some true top class saves against Crystal Palace by the Spanish goalkeeper gives him a place in my team.
West Brom v Chelsea
The Baggies are enjoying life under Tony Pulis and look set to survive, but this is all about the champions Chelsea who will be playing in their final game of the season away from home.
STAR MAN – John TERRY
The highest scoring defender in Premier League history is now John Terry, and combined with his amazing defensive ability, he is surely the perfect player.
Arsenal v Sunderland
This bonus game pits together two teams at opposite ends of the standings, so it will be interesting to see which way this one swings. A shock could be on the cards as we saw when the Gunners hosted Swansea.
STAR MAN – Olivier GIROUD
The Frenchman is lethal in the air, and Sunderland are a side that really struggle to defend from a set piece.
