HOME – Newcastle Saturday 16th March 15:00

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Eddie Howe was surprisingly open about his team’s injuries today, having said that, he could have just been lying, it’s what he does.
  • Howe said: “Adam (Smith) has a small grade hamstring strain so will be missing. Whether he will make the first game back after the international break, I’m not sure at the moment.”
  • Eddie also said Gosling and Stanislas would be unavailable for the game vs Newcastle.
  • Brooks is building up fitness still but should feature and Fraser missed some training earlier this week, but is expected to be fit.
  • Lewis Cook, Simon Francis and Steve Cook remain out.

HOME – Leicester Saturday 16th March 15:00

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Burnley are really hoping to get back to winning ways as they host Leicester this week. They are currently sit in 17th place in the Premier League, just two points off the relegation zone.
  • Sean Dyche on the Burnley injury news: “Aaron [Lennon] has got a chance over the next few weeks, we’ll see. Steven [Defour], probably not. The others, just a few knocks and bruises, nothing too serious.”
  • Dyche praised Tom Heaton for his England call up. “It’s good for Tom. He has deserved it with his performances and the way he generally goes about his business,”.
  • Gudmundsson could come in after scoring from the bench against Liverpool.

AWAY – Everton Sunday 17th March 16:30

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Chelsea travel to Everton this week and are hoping to return to winning ways after their draw with Wolves last week. The three teams above them do not play this weekend so this is a good chance to put pressure on their rivals. They face an Everton team with just four points from their last six matches.
  • Sarri praised Giroud after his perfect hat trick in Kiev. “Very, very good. But, in the last period, every time he has been on the pitch, he was able to play really very well. He’s scored nine goals in this competition. As you know very well, Olivier for us is a very important player. I’m really very happy for him, and am really very happy with him.”
  • Higuain has been struggling with illness this week so is a doubt.
  • No new injuries have been reported. Emerson was rested in Kiev so is expected to come back in at LB despite Alonso scoring in the Europa league.

HOME – Chelsea Sunday 17th March 16:30

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Silva rubbished any suggestion that Pickford might be dropped; ‘Jordan has all my confidence…He has the confidence of the national team coach, which is important also.’
  • Coleman (illness) and Baines (rib) are both available for selection at the weekend although Jagielka has been ruled out with a minor knee injury.
  • Schneiderlin could be deployed in midfield as he was against Liverpool with Gomes missing out.
  • Zouma cannot play against his parent club which could see Yerry Mina make a return to the starting 11.

Current form: LLLWDL

Fantasy Football TipsFulham






HOME – Liverpool Sunday 17th March 14:15

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Alfie Mawson and Marcus Bettinelli have been ruled out. Andre Schürrle has returned to training following a month on the sidelines due to illness and could come be back into the side.
  • Odoi has not looked suited to right-back in recent weeks and Parker could look to change things with Cyrus Christie waiting in the wings, although the latter has not played a minute under the interim manager to date.
  • Ryan Sessegnon’s defensive credentials may well see him start on the wing again as Parker will be wary of playing too offensively against Salah and Alexander-Arnold.
  • Seri and Anguissa will be pushing for starts and Parker may well turn to them to shake things up after defeats in his first two games as manager.

Current form: LLLLLL

Fantasy Football TipsHuddersfield





AWAY – West Ham Saturday 16th March 15:00

Last Updated: Thursday 14th March 2019

  • Huddersfield pressers are the most thankless job at FF247, luckily I appreciate my little Terriers as I do appreciate a team who is the best at being the worst.
  • Jan Siewert was very forthcoming with his team’s long list of injuries although it can be said that it probably would have been easier if he listed the players who are not injured
  • Adama missing, Hoggy is out, Depoitre struggling, TK (Kongolo) still has problems, Durm has a small problem, Mbenza still missing, Williams still out.
  • The gaffer said “We have to score goals” well now, I can see why they put him in charge, there is no way the previous manager would have thought of such a thing.
  • The Terriers have 4 points since the start of December.

AWAY – Burnley Saturday 16th March 15:00

Last Updated: Thursday 14th March 2019

  • BR on injuries had this to say “There’s nothing as of yet. There’s another day to go but at this moment they are okay.” So no fresh injuries then, sounds like only Albrighton and Amartey are unavailable for selection.
  • On Matty James and his fight with injuries and possible minutes down the line “It seems to be a constant but he is back now training and it will be difficult for him first-team wise this season but he may get some games in the seconds to reinforce, then be ready to start pre-season and see how it goes.”
  • After Leicester’s first win last week under Rodgers one should not expect many if any changes in the XI.

AWAY – Fulham Sunday 17th March 12:00

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Henderson was withdrawn after just 13 minutes against Bayern Munich with an ankle injury and he has been ruled out of playing any part against Fulham this weekend; he will hopefully return to full fitness after the international break.
  • Keita is looking close to a return and will be assessed to see whether he is fit enough to train today.
  • Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping to make his return after the international break after a minor set-back whilst playing with the Under 23s. Gomez is aiming for a similar return date.
  • After a gutsy performance against Bayern in which many key players played the full 90, Klopp could use the trip to Fulham to give some players a rest. Liverpool are not blessed with the squad depth of City though.

Last Updated: Friday 15th March 2019

  • Rafa rules out the skipper saying “We won’t take the risk with lacaselles”.
  • Longstaff and Elliot are unavailable but Clark is back in contention according to Rafa.
  • With lacaselles ruled out and Schar suspended, Rafa could revert to a back four like he used vs Everton in the second half last week.
  • Ki could make way for Shelvey after the latter came on for him and helped turn the game in favour of Newcastle last week.

Last Updated: Thursday 14th March 2019

  • Andy Carroll has been ruled out with an ankle injury which is yet to be medically examined.

  • Pellegrini explained that Arnautovic ‘was left out of the squad’ in recent months for many reasons. It remains to be seen whether he will start this weekend but he did add “He was going to start against Manchester City but he felt bad that day. There’s a lot of reasons why he was starting on the bench, but I think he is ready to return in his position.”
  • Sanchez, Yarmolenko and Wilshere are all still out.
  • Very short presser from Pellegrini today although he still managed to put his excuses in place; Huddersfield are ‘maybe a more dangerous team’ because they are ‘fighting for something’. Since when?

      I used my Free Hit this week, as I would rather use it to get a player in who will play 90 minutes, than get one in who may or may not play 180. I always found the DGWs a bit hit and miss to be honest.

      Then again, pretty much all my decisions this season have gone awry, so take my advice for whatever it is worth!

      DMC says:

      @LJY1985: Your team doesn’t look great for BGW31 neither for DG32 so you got yourself in a pickle there mate. I think you are playing the losing game, that is, you are losing points in BGW31 to those who fully prepared for it and you are not that well prepared for DGW32 either.

      So, which is the best gw to play the FH? I don’t know your personal situation in terms of mini league and or OR but I’d still think you are better off with say a -8 this week to field 8 players that have a game in 31 and 33 and thus partially annul those hits than not having the FH chip for 32. You can really be in jeoperdy with this team if you don’t have the FH in 32.

    Thanks for the tips! Is it worth taking a -4 to bring Vardy in for Rashford?

    Used my 2 FT’s to bring in Vardy and Wilson.
    Straw poll:
    Hazard or Fraser as a midfield addition for a hit?
