The best part about midweek matchdays is that it doesn't let you wait for the next one, which is just 2 days away.Its the momentum that continues from one to another and im sure more clarity about some picks which did or didnt work well in the previous matchday.
Our articles in the last few weeks have started with mentioning Krul as he either makes or breaks your matchday.Well this week he did a brilliant job for most of you who stuck with him.Some of the ex-man.utd players like Campbell,Gibson or Obertan were on the scoresheets.Bale and Dempsey have proven it yet again that they are the best midfielders in the league at the moment.First goal for the season for Kuyt,Gibson and N Zogbia. Last but not the least Carroll did finally score a goal.
Lets get straight to Week 24 :
Keepers are turning out to be an important member in the team where contributing to points is concerned.It does require the defence to be inform and no slip ups at all.Coming off a clean sheet and playing at home against Blackburn does make Szczesny a good bet for this week.
With an improved performance over the last few weeks, you could see alot more from Vermaelen.He did look lively against Bolton and with Blackburn making a trip to the Emirates you could be ready for a good game from him.Another reason to pick him is the weak right back options for Blackburn which will allow Vermaelen free access.
A strong debut for Taye Taiwo yesterday with a shot on target and some passes intercepted.Always prefer a wing back to a centre forward as they keep contributing from their offensive performances apart from the clean sheets.Playing at home against Wolves should be a no brainer and his price hasnt gone up too much to get him in.
There could be some formation changes with the absence of Cabaye for the next few weeks and the return of Ba and Cisse.This could lead to R.Taylor moving up to midfield and therefore not changing the defence too much.Coming off a clean sheet and his price not so high, Santon could be worth a look in for this week against Aston Villa at home.
For leading your midfield, look no further than Gareth Bale who is in a form of his own and doesnt really matter who he is playing against.Even though Liverpool are a good team to play against, top players like Bale could sort any opposition out.Having him in your midfield does provide stability and you are in for a good performance irrespective.With his price gone up making him the most expensive player in the game, you wouldnt want to keep him out of your team at this point.
G.Sigurdsson has looked lively in his first few games and is teaming up well in the Swansea midfield.His contributions have been noticed.Playing against West Brom, who have not won a game at home since November 19th , should be a good matchup.
With the addition of Martin o Neill, Sunderland look like a strong team and have put in some amazing performances.One man who is in the thick of things is Sessegnon who has been assisting andscoring goals for fun.In the last 5 games, he has scored 3, assisted 2 and averages a shot on goal per game.On the other hand Stoke conceed goals at home and not as strong as they used to be.
Sticking with another team with a new manager, QPR seem to have been uplifted in all ways possible with the addition of Mark Hughes.The did look more lively against Aston Villa and now they have easy games against Wolves and Blackburn.Buzsaky,if fit, looks like the player to have in your side.Missed out last matchday but should be back in the line up.His last home game saw him produce a goal,an assist and 4 shots on targets.He does seem to be the pick of QPR midfielders.
After some quiet weeks its about time to support the man,RVP.His value has been on its way down and it does seem in reach with the budgets.There couldnt be a better matchup and timing for Arsenal to play Blackburn at the Emirates.Picking RVP for this week doesnt require any stats, thoughts or any comparisons.
Qpr has the right matches coming up and the morale in the dressing room is sky high.The team has made the right additions in the January transfers and with the partnership of Cisse and Zamora they could be a team to watch out for in the near term.
Having someone like Fraizer Campbell back after a long layoff due to injury must be like a new signing for Martin O Neill.With the absence of Bendtner, it could be a good time to stick with Campbell as the midfield is providing the right support for their frontman.
Well that sums up our best picks for week 24.This week we have put up a different format and a change from the regular.Hope you did like it.Looking forward to a good week and hopefully a high scoring one.
Hope you have a great weekend.You can follow our twitter @iFantasyEPL for all team updates.
