I suppose the massive query this week is whether or not Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane can be again from the African Cup of Nations in time to play for Liverpool. It additionally needs to be remembered that Chelsea and Brighton don’t play and Chelsea don’t play in Gameweeks 25 and 27 both which makes their gamers significantly unattractive to fantasy managers in the intervening time. If I had to decide on a captain for this week I feel Kevin de Bruyne may simply be the person to have, however sadly he’s not in my squad because it stands.

West Ham gamers might have week in opposition to Watford which makes Jarrod Bowen possibility for fantasy managers whereas Liverpool appear like they may do nicely in opposition to Leicester together with City gamers scoring loads of factors in opposition to Brentford

Tuesday 8 February 

Newcastle United v Everton 

7.45pm GMT, St. James’s Park, Newcastle 

Newcastle received a badly wanted 1-0 win away to Leeds of their final recreation, however it wasn’t sufficient to elevate them out of the relegation zone. They’ve only misplaced considered one of their final six residence video games with only Norwich conceding extra targets on their very own patch. They’re unbeaten in three video games and a win on this recreation ought to transfer them out of the underside three.

Allan Saint-Maximin remains to be the Newcastle player to have for fantasy managers.

Everton misplaced 1-0 at residence to Villa final outing they usually’re now only 4 factors above the underside three. They’ve only taken two factors from their final eight away video games with only Burnley taking much less factors on their travels. They’ve only taken one level from their final 5 video games they usually haven’t saved a clear sheet in 9 video games, however the appointment of Frank Lampard is perhaps the increase they should climb the desk.

I’m undecided there are any Everton gamers doing sufficient in the intervening time to curiosity fantasy managers.

This can be a very huge recreation for 2 groups on the improper finish of the desk and I wouldn’t be stunned to see it finish in a draw.

Prediction: 1-1

West Ham United v Watford 

7.45pm GMT, London Stadium, London 

West Ham misplaced 1-0 away to United of their final recreation and that defeat noticed them drop out of the highest 4.

Jarrod Bowen is the West Ham player to have for fantasy managers whereas Michail Antonio is an efficient possibility too and Stated Benrahma needs to be thought-about now that he’s again from international responsibility.

Watford misplaced 3-0 at residence to Norwich and drew 0-0 away to Burnley within the final Gameweek and people outcomes noticed them fall into the underside three. They’ve only taken two factors from their final 5 away video games, however they’ve taken extra factors on the highway than they’ve at residence. They’ve only taken two factors from their final 9 video games with only Norwich and Newcastle conceding extra targets, however they did preserve their first clear sheet of the season of their final recreation.

Emmanuel Dennis is the Watford player doing probably the most for fantasy managers, however his disciplinary file could be a huge let down.

I feel West Ham will preserve the stress up of their quest for a high 4 end with three factors on this recreation.

Prediction: 3-0

Burnley v Manchester United 

8pm GMT, Turf Moor, Burnley 

Burnley drew 0-0 away to Arsenal and at residence to Watford within the final Gameweek and people two attracts noticed them drop to the foot of the desk.

United received 1-0 at residence to West Ham of their final recreation and that win moved them above West Ham into the highest 4. They’re unbeaten of their final 5 away video games, however they drew three of them and their subsequent two away video games are in opposition to groups on the improper finish of the desk. They’ve taken 21 factors from their final 10 video games and their subsequent 5 video games are all ones they are going to be anticipated to win.

With an excellent run of video games arising Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford might all do very nicely for fantasy managers.

I feel this can be an in depth recreation, however the chances are high United will emerge with the three factors.

Prediction: 1-2

Wednesday 9 February

They’ve run of video games arising and they’re going to hope to increase their lead on the high of the desk to allow them to focus on the opposite trophies they wish to win this season too.

City’s defenders and keeper are nonetheless the most effective bets for fantasy managers together with Kevin de Bruyne after all.

Brentford misplaced 2-1 at residence to Wolves final outing, however they nonetheless have a wholesome eight factors to spare over the underside three. They’ve only taken two factors from their final seven away video games they usually conceded 19 targets in these video games with only three different groups conceding extra targets on their travels. They’ve misplaced their final 4 video games they usually conceded 12 targets in these video games with only 4 different groups conceding extra targets.

Ivan Toney is the Brentford player almost definitely to carry out for fantasy managers, however perhaps not on this recreation.

7.45pm GMT, Carrow Highway, Norwich 

Norwich received 3-0 away to Watford of their final recreation and that win was sufficient to maneuver them out of the relegation zone for the primary time this season. They received their final residence recreation after dropping the earlier three with out scoring and no different workforce has scored much less targets at residence.

Palace misplaced 3-1 at residence to Liverpool of their final recreation, however they’re nonetheless only two factors off the highest half of the desk. They’ve only taken two factors from their final 5 away video games and only three different groups have taken much less factors on the highway. They’ve only received two of their final 11 video games and only three different groups have drawn extra video games.

Conor Gallagher continues to be the Palace player to have for fantasy managers whereas Michael Olise and Odsonne Edouard are potentialities too.

I feel Palace needs to be ok to take the three factors on this recreation.

Prediction: 0-2

8pm GMT, Villa Park, Birmingham 

Villa received 1-0 away to Everton of their final recreation they usually’re only exterior the highest half of the desk on purpose distinction. They’ve only received two of their final seven residence video games, however they’ve a beneficial run of residence video games arising beginning with this one. 4 of their subsequent 5 video games are in opposition to groups beneath them within the desk and people video games give them an excellent probability of transferring into the highest half of the desk.

With run of video games arising Ollie Watkins, John McGinn, Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia might all be of curiosity to fantasy managers.

Leeds misplaced 1-0 at residence to Newcastle of their final recreation when a win would have given them quite a lot of respiratory house on the improper finish of the desk. They received their final away recreation at West Ham, however they’ve conceded 12 targets of their final three away video games with only Norwich and Southampton conceding extra targets on the highway. That they had received two video games in a row for the primary time this season earlier than dropping to Newcastle, however they may do with one thing from their subsequent two video games earlier than their fixtures get quite a bit trickier.

Raphinha is the Leeds player to have for fantasy managers in the intervening time so long as he’s handed match to play.

I feel Villa ought to simply have sufficient about them for a slim victory on this recreation.

Prediction: 2-1

Thursday 10 February 

Liverpool v Leicester City 

7.45pm GMT, Anfield, Liverpool 

Liverpool received 3-1 away to Palace of their final recreation they usually’re now 9 factors behind City on the high of the desk, however they do have a recreation in hand.
