Man United – Not Just Ibrahimovic?

Manchester United have hit an upsurge in form over their last ten league games, with seven wins and three draws in that period. So in this article I want to analyse their defence and their midfield, and look at their prospects over the next ten league games, as well as whether or not I recommend taking on any United players into your FPL team beyond the obvious goalscoring threat of Ibrahimovic.

Aguero vs Costa – Is There A New King In Town?

Having, assessed Sanchez and Hazard, I now want to look at strikers. Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa are two of the league’s top strikers, many would argue the top two in the league right now, with seventeen goals between them this season, and 134 combined FPL points across a total of 20 games. But which one is better for your fantasy team? Continue reading

Tom Heaton – England’s Number One?

Tom Heaton is currently the best goalkeeper on FPL, having racked up fifty points so far this season. Heaton is currently being hailed as one of the top keepers in the division, and his performance at Old Trafford, where United had thirty-seven shots without scoring and Heaton made eleven saves, is being called one of the very best. The brute stats backing up Heaton’s performances so far this season are overwhelming, so I want to just rattle off a few in his defence. Then I will examine the United game to see how far it affects his overall stats. And then I want to look at what I think is a very interesting feature of Heaton’s game, which underlines why he is a top keeper and how he will fare in future weeks as a result of this feature.

Does the November curse still haunt Arsenal?

Arsenal looks reasonably well set going into this November, currently second in the Premier League only on goal difference and having not lost since the opening day of the season. But historically, November is a bad month for Arsenal. Over the last decade, they’ve played 40 November league games worth a potential 120 points, yet the Gunners have lost 15 of these games picking up just 59 points.

So will it happen again this year? Continue reading

Sergio Aguero – Time To Bite The Bullet?

Sergio Aguero is the hottest prospect in the Premier League. In the last five seasons, he’s broken twenty goals three times, and when he hasn’t it’s because he’s been injured. As far as FPL, he has broken the two hundred point barrier on more than one occasion, was in the dream team last season and is selected by over 43% of teams. He is a must buy. Continue reading
