FAVOURABLE FIXTURES MANCHESTER CITY – Fulham (A), Liverpool (H), Crystal Palace (H), Swansea (A) City certainly put down a marker on Saturday then! As a statement of intent you do not get much more emphatic than scoring six against the league leaders. The potential loss of Sergio Aguero for anything up to two months, depending on which report you read, may on the face of it be a blow but judging by Saturday alone, they may well be ok – they scored three with him and still notched another three once he had departed. Liverpool looked in rude health at the weekend, dispatching Spurs for fiv...Read More
Aston Villa 0-3 Man Utd Man Utd were dealt a huge blow midweek with the news that Robin van Persie would be side-lined for about a month with a thigh injury. Aston Villa were without the influential Fabien Delph who was serving a one game suspension and the Villains were hoping to end their abysmal home run against Utd, their last league win against Utd was 18 years ago. Sadly for Villa after just 18 minutes of play they found themselves two nil down thanks to Danny Welbeck. The first came after Adnan Januzaj had hit the post and Welbeck was first on hand to slot home, the second came three mi...Read More
Manchester City 6-3 Arsenal What a way to start off the weekend! Words cannot really describe to you what on earth went on in those 90 minutes at the Etihad yesterday but we will try our best to put it into words for you. From a corner kick, Sergio Aguero gave Manchester City the lead after a flick on by Martin Demichelis was volleyed in brilliantly at the far post. On the half hour mark the return of Theo Walcott for Arsenal saw him grab his first of the game when a rather tame shot trickled past Pantilimon in goal. Perhaps a slight deflection off a City defender could have been the reason fo...Read More
The deadline bell has rung, your transfer concerns are over and your agonies over who to captain are no more. But will they perform, did you give the armband to the right player and will you see green arrows for your team this week?
Welcome to GW16 and it promises to be a real cracker, with no easy home fixtures for the “big” boys, meaning the likes of Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez are not necessarily such obvious picks for captain this week. So it’s a week that promises to really test the skill of fantasy managers and with injuries and suspensions mounting up, it could also be a test of the strength of our squads, rather than just the starting XI. With that in mind, let’s go around the grounds and see what the managers have said regarding team news for GW16.
As good old Perry Como once sang, “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas ” and from a fantasy football point of view that means games, games & more games! You thought you’ve had it tough over the first 15 game-weeks? Well you ain’t seen nothing yet! With so many games in such a short time period the top clubs are likely to rotate their squads, while the smaller clubs who don’t have the luxury of rotating their squads are more at risk of picking up a couple of injuries. Basically it just means more headaches for us fantasy managers! But fear not, below we have detailed a n...Read More
No fewer than six players have managed to clock up a suspension for the coming game-week, none more notable than Kevin Nolan, who received a straight red card for a challenge on Jordan Henderson. We rather suspect he may have fancied Christmas off having viewed how rash and unnecessary it was! However, he may not have factored in the Capital One cup match in mid-week next week as he will now only miss 2 FPL games as a result. Plenty of players are falling foul of the ‘totting up’ rule as 5 yellow cards at this stage of the season means an automatic 1 match suspension. In these situ...Read More
