Last week was great as most of us who went all in with Liverpool players did see a good jump in points and rank.A brilliant performance by Gerrard and its important to mention Suarez here as he unselfishly set up 2 of the 3 goals scored by Gerrard.
A much needed boost going in to the last phase of the season.With just 10 matchdays to go, its time to do things differently and thats what we aim to do in our analysis of Week 29.
Lets first take a look at the easy matchups :
Wolves vs Man Utd
Tottenham vs Stoke
Fulham vs Swansea
Newcastle vs Norwich
Forwards : Rooney(the pick of the forwards for this week and the weeks to follow as the fixtures are good, form is good and players in the team are returning from injuries which will only help him to score ) Pogrebnyak ( Fulham at home are a different side all together even though them might struggle away from home.Pogrebnyak has till now been super at home and scored from every opportunity thats come his way.Worth sticking to him even after a bad run again Aston Villa last week.) Ba (His value has come down to aroung 15 and you wouldnt mind paying that for someone who has scored 16 goals this season.Home game against Norwich would be ideal for picking up Ba incase you havent got Rooney or Suarez ) Adebayor ( After a bad run of games,Tottenham would want to put this phase behind them and start putting in some serious performances to secure a top 4 finish.At home against stoke could be an ideal situation to get in a good show)
Midfielders : Dempsey( Fulham have a great record at home and there is nothing that can stop them scoring plenty of goals.Swansea on the other hand have been poor on the road) Young ( He is starting to show some solid form just like the way he began this season.His injury is behind him and will be eager to put in all he has in the remaining games). Bale( He is the key to Tottenham's performances and due to injury he has been out of the side.Now he is back to full fitness and it will be a big boost to Tottenham's finish to the season.he is worth an investment in case you dont have money parked in Rvp or Rooney) Valencia (He has travelled along with the squad for the second leg of the Europa League, meaning he is fit and ready for first team action.His value is affordable but the question remains whether he will play against Wolves.I think he will as it will be a easy game for him to get some playing time) Ben Arfa ( Newcastle are at home against Norwich and Pardew has been putting his faith on Ban Arfa lately.I prefer him to Cabaye as he tends to play a more attacking role.He scored last week against Arsenal and is doing what it takes to cement a starting place in the squad)
Defenders : Man Utd's defenders stand out this week as Wolves are just poor.Evans was cheap before his price went up.Smalling is back in contention and should start as Jones has some injury issues.Kelly is back from injury and will start for Fulham.Newcastle defenders are cheap and worth a look.Santon ( 4.78) is cheap and with the absence of R.taylor he could keep his place in the defence.
Goalkeepers : Freidel ( This is the right time to get him in as Tottenham have had a bad patch of form but i see this as the right opportunity to put that behind them and start fresh at home against Stoke) DDG ( Its been a while since he made it to our keeper recommendations but the stretch of matches is good and their defence is getting their act in order.Though he is expensive and i would rather put that money in midfield or forwards )
The best of the rest :
Forwards : Suarez, Agbonlahor, Rvp, Cisse (at discount only), Odemwingie is a injury doubt
Midfielders : Gerrard, McClean, Hoilett, Miyaichi, Brunt
Defenders : Kelly, Enrique, Bridge, Ream, Vermaelen
Keepers : Given, Krul
This week matches are spread from saturday to Wednesday next week as there is FA cup action this weekend and therefore midweek EPL games for those who play in the FA cup tie.
Thats all we have in our recommendations .Hope you all have a great matchday and get in good numbers. Feel free to discuss your teams, picks or any queries you have regarding your team.Keep in touch with all updates, injuries etc on here or our official twitter account @iFantasyEPL
Have a great weekend.
