Glad to hear that Muamba is showing good signs to recovery and its the strength of the footy family thats transfered the good wishes to him.We do hope you all continue to pray for him to recover fully . #PrayforMuamba
We are into the Week 30's and its the business end of the season where teams try to make their positions safe(r) whichever spot on the table they may belong.Its the top 7-8 teams and the bottom few teams who give it all as there is lots to win or lose.It makes us benefit from no rotations or no resting of players and we would see the best eleven on the field.
Lets get straight to Week 30 and the best matchups :
Liverpool vs Wigan
Norwich vs Wolves
Stoke vs Man City
Arsenal vs Aston Villa
Man Utd vs Fulham
Forwards : Rooney ( With Alex putting all his faith on his top man to score 40+ goals this season, i dont see anything stopping him.He will be looking to add to the 7 goals he has scored in the last 5 games he has played in the league ) Suarez ( Scored a blinder in the FA cup last weekend and is playing a weak Wigan side at home.This could be an all in time where he is concerned) RVP ( If you have kept him at a good discount, this could be your week for redemption again) Aguero(There has been a debate about Aguero not returning enough points and just going off for the last few weeks.But i do feel he still has a part to play for Man City to pose any threat to United in this exciting run in to the end)
If you do like to take a gamble on one of your forward spots, Tevez is cheap at around 7.Also in this catagory is Holt who is also at an affordable price around 8.
In case you cannot afford Rooney in your team, you need to look at Hernandez who should keep his place in the side ahead of Welbeck after his brace last week.
Midfielders : Valencia ( Undoubtedly the best right winger in the league right now and he showed us time and time again that why he is such a threat.Last week was enough to bring him straight into the team and keep him till further notice) Gerrard (No brainer as he is the only Liverpool midfielder who i would put my money on against a weak team that too at home) Pilkington ( Norwich at home against Wigan could see alot of goals for the home side and Pilkington is a good option) Young ( In case you hold him at a discount i would suggest you stick with him as he has had enough rest time last week)
Defenders :Usually all our easy matchups mentioned above are potential good defensive options.Evans ( scored his first goal for the reds last week and has been their best defender for most of this season ) Carragher,Skrtel and Enrique are good picks at home.Its a toss up between Kelly and Glen Johnson as the latter is on his way back from injury and we will know on Friday on the exact status.Vermaelen has been showing some form and has scored in each of his last 2 games.Santos is back in contention and should get a game.Smalling's price is at an all time low(5.79) and its the best time to get him in.
In case you believe in a ManCity clean sheet, Kolo Toure could be worth a look as his price is affordable.
Keepers :No real bargains here this week as most of them cost above 8.In case you are buying a keeper at retail i would suggest you spend that money on either Reina or Ruddy who cost around 9 and 8 respectively.In case you hold Ddg at a discount, its an ideal situation.
Well thats alot of options from the easy matchup, but there are some good options in the other games as well.
The Best of the Rest are :
Forwards : Bendtner, Yakubu, Sinclair
Midfielders : Sigurdsson, McClean, Miyaichi, Hoilett,
Defenders : Ream, Bridge, Rangel
Im putting my investments upfront/midfield and bargain picks from favourable matchups in the defenders spots.
