The 14th gameweek of the FPL season dawns upon us and along with it comes an FPL gameweek 14 preview! A few peppy fixtures, in which slightly cheeky investments could reap massive reward. Choose wisely as from now on, fixtures come thick and fast!
Best of luck and may your arrows be green!
Manchester City vs Chelsea
After a hard fought win versus Spurs last weekend, Chelsea extended their winning streak to six games now, whereas Manchester City somehow managed to scrap out a win away from home at Turf Moor against a resilient Burnley side. Looks to be a cracker of a contest between two teams at the very summit. Expect a game evenly fought between the sides.
STAR MAN: Kevin De Bruyne (10.8m)
He has been influential in City’s attacking prowess this season and will hope to come good in this important fixture.
PREDICTION: Chelsea 2-2 Manchester City
Crystal Palace vs Southampton
Palace have been on their worst run in the Premier League after six consecutive defeats and slumping close to the relegation zone. The Saints have done well to overcome their poor start to the season and are on the back of a good victory versus Everton. Palace will be desperate to get something out of this game, especially since it is at home. The Saints might just find it a bit tough to contain the attacking threat of the Eagles.
STAR MAN: Wilfried Zaha (5.4m)
He has been the guy who is carrying the Palace attack in recent games and looks to be in good form.
PREDICTION: Crystal Palace 2-1 Southampton
Tottenham vs Swansea
Spurs were on the losing end for the first time this season in last week’s tough game against an in form Chelsea team. Swansea on the other hand came back to win a nine goal thriller at the Liberty against the Eagles. The Spurs solid defence might make it very difficult for the Swans to score away from home. Expect an easy Spurs victory from this fixture.
STAR MAN: Harry Kane (10.9m)
Been in great form after coming back from injury and will be looking to take the attack to the opposition.
PREDICTION: Tottenham 2-0 Swansea
Stoke vs Burnley
Stoke seem to have gotten their season back on track with an away win against Watford last time out. Burnley have now suffered back to back defeats and have found it difficult to break down opposition defences. They haven’t managed to score many goals as of yet and that might play a key role when they face the rigid defence of Stoke this week. The game could get cagey with both sides getting their fair share of chances.
STAR MAN: Marko Arnautovic (7.2m)
Has been in and out of form this season but seems to be vital in Stoke city’s attacking play.
PREDICTION: Stoke 2-0 Burnley
Sunderland vs Leicester
Sunderland have shown that they can add quality to their game with their grit and determination to stay in the Premier League. Moyes’ men have been impressive in their last few fixtures and will be looking to carry on this form as they face a struggling Leicester team who have so far had the worst title defence of any team in the history of the Premier League. Looks like an open game with many chances which might be created for both teams.
STAR MAN: Jermain Defoe (7.5m)
The Englishman has been key to the Black Cats form revival this season and will be a key man for their upcoming games in terms of attack.
PREDICTION: Sunderland 2-1 Leicester City
West Brom vs Watford
The Baggies side are a side in form, having grabbed 7 points out of a possible 9 in the last 3 games, and come up against a Hornets side that didn’t look like themselves last time out against Stoke. It seems like it’ll be an end to end game with a likely home win on the cards.
STAR MAN: Nacer Chadli (6.3m)
The Belgian is back from a spell on the sidelines, and should have something to say in this fixture.
PREDICTION: West Brom 2-0 Watford
West Ham vs Arsenal
Arsenal came back strong last weekend after the disappointing display at Old Trafford and will definitely want to continue if they are to go anywhere near close to winning the league. This week, they face a Hammers side that were quite lucky to have grabbed a point at Old Trafford last weekend but the goalkeeper won’t step up every week. An easy away win for Arsenal.
STAR MAN: Theo Walcott (7.9m)
The Englishman is on top form; don’t be surprised if you see him bag a goal or two this weekend.
PREDICTION: West Ham 1-3 Arsenal
Bournemouth vs Liverpool
Liverpool have undoubtedly been one of the best teams this season, having not lost a single game since Gameweek 2. This week though, they are definitely without their creator-in-chief Philippe Coutinho and possibly Adam Lallana, so this win might not be as easy.
STAR MAN: Divock Origi (6.5m)
With both Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge doubts to start the game, this could prove to be the Belgian’s gameweek.
PREDICTION: Bournemouth 1-3 Liverpool
Everton vs Manchester United
This is definitely one of the fixtures to look out for this gameweek, as a frustrated United side travel to Goodison Park. Both sides are desperate for the 3 points and this could just bring the best out of both of them. This game definitely promises a lot of action which might be a treat to watch.
STAR MAN: Juan Mata (7.5m)
The Spaniard is the man on form and might well prove to be worthy of a punt.
PREDICTION: Everton 1-3 Manchester United
Middlesbrough vs Hull
Both the Tigers and Boro sit in the bottom half of the table and are desperate for any possible points. This is a fixture both sides will look to to grab a vital victory. This Monday night game seems to be an open ended game which should definitely involve a few goals from both sides.
STAR MAN: Adama Traore (4.8m)
He has been quite lively in the last 2 games, and a Monday night game against a weak Tigers defence could guarantee some points.
PREDICTION: Middlesbrough 3-2 Hull City
