Advice

Arsenal CrestArsenal

Review

With Arsenals top scorer Sanchez confined to the bench, no wonder Arsenal lost to a well drilled Liverpool side this weekend. Recently all the talk has been around Alexis’ future at the club, however I still believe he has a huge part to play in the remainder of the Gunners season. Disappointingly, with Wenger’s change of striker, Giroud had less touches in the first half than both of the goalkeepers! Which is why I believe that with fairly kind fixtures to come I think we haven’t seen the last of the Chilean.

Tips

The Gunners have a blank this week but after that the fixtures look bright going into the DGW’s, barring a tricky home tie against City. Sanchez remains the key asset, however with rumours regarding a bust up on the training ground we need to monitor his game time, so I wouldn’t go buying without further information.

Bournemouth CrestBournemouth

Review

Eddie Howe’s side are still without a win since GW19, however they picked up only their third point from 9 games in a hard fought battle against The Devils. The Cherries face two winable home fixtures in the next two and more importantly a guarenteed fixture this week, before facing Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs in matches to come.

Tips

Sell Stanislas, although consider holding for GW28 if you have other urgent transfers in the hope he might play. King looks to be the short term budget midfielder, playing as striker and scoring 4 goals from as many fixtures, could be a decent replacement for the likes of Stanislas and Phillips.

Burnley CrestBurnley

Review

Burnley’s horrific away form continues in a crucial game that puts Burnley under pressure towards the end of the season. Gray brace meant that the 3-2 loss wasn’t all negative, but it is the first time the Clarets have scored more than one on the road and all together there 8th goal in away trips!  

Tips

Dont buy ahead of their fixture vs. Liverpool, however hold property for this week. Monitor Brady who has 1 goal and 2 assists in his last three starts.

Chelsea CrestChelsea

Review

The Blues showed off their counter attacking ability this week against West Ham, regaining the 10 point gap between closest chases Spurs. Despite being unbeaten since Spurs in GW20, Chelsea haven’t kept a clean sheet in 5 games, although with Stoke, Palace and Bournemouth in the next four, I back there defensive ability to come through once again.

Tips

Hold all property. With Hazard starting to regain form and the fixtures turning bright, regardless of GW28’s blank, it will be worth sticking with your men. Pedro provides a budget option as an alternative to Hazard in the Chelsea midfield, adding two goals and two assists in the last three to Chelsea’s attack.

Crystal Palace CrestCrystal Palace

Review

Back to back wins and clean sheets for Big Sam’s Eagles in what has been a crucial turn to their PL season. With Palace now boosted by two wins out of the drop zone, it is vital their form continues as being only 3 points ahead of chasing Middlesbrough suggests anything but safety.

Tips

Palace wingers Zaha and Townsend provided the class with two expertly taken goals, however my recommendation is two only monitor due to their fixtures of Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal in the next five. Van Aanholt owners should be weary, he was taken off at 61 mins with an ankle injury.

Everton CrestEverton

Review

Evertons unbeaten nine game streak came to an end after Sundays defeat to Spurs. Despite the loss, owners of Lukaku should be optimistic over the next two games as they face West Brom and Hull at Goodison in what look rather tempting fixtures for Lukaku to chase the Golden boot rivals.

Tips

For GW28 I believe that owning some Everton property is essential. Including either one of Baines or Coleman, I would tip Coleman over Baines because of his attacking threat, however if you own Baines don’t be worried as he remains on penalties and has equally as good assist potential. Once the again the Big Belgian is a solid captaincy option this week against the Baggies, who have already conceded 4 goals in fixtures against Spurs and City.

Hull City CrestHull City

Review

Hull started sharply in their game against Leicester scoring in just 14 minutes against the Champions. However, their lead did not last long and they ended up with a disappointing 3-1 loss in what looked to be a game between two sides fighting relegation. Hull came close to other goals after Maguire’s effort from a corner ricocheted off the post and he saw another one just miss soon after.

Tips

After hitting the post against the Foxes, Maguire at £4.4mil in my recommendation for this week. Monitor Grosicki, two assists in two suggests hes found a grove and my provide a good differential over kind fixtures.  

Leicester City CrestLeicester City

Review

A revived Leicester City? Lets give them another game, however we will have to wait a couple of weeks to find out as they face a blank this weekend. Mahrez netted his first PL goal since GW13 with a stylish finish and with West Ham, Stoke and Sunderland in the next three, the Foxes will hope they escape the drop in the next few games.

Tips

Avoid this week due to the blank. Monitor Vardy and Mahrez because if this is a revived Leicester team then these two will score. Fuchs looks an appealing option in defence although look elsewhere until we can confirm consistency.

Liverpool CrestLiverpool

Review

After a woeful performance against Leicester the previous week, The Reds turn it on against a pretty lacklustre Arsenal side, meaning they remain unbeaten against the current top 7 premier league sides this season. With Liverpool being one of only eight teams to play this week, its well worth a look at their midfield assets.

Tips

All sides should have one Reds midfielder this gameweek. Lallana is the budget option although he has gone of the boil slightly having not scored or assisted since GW19. Mane is the most expensive but I would tip him over the Brazilians due to is percentage involvement in Liverpool’s goals and has proved more consistent all season. Monitor Coutinho, 12 shots in the last 2 gameweek, more than any other midfielder – we may see him return to his pre-injury form.

Man City CrestMan City

Tips

Sell. The only asset you could argue to keep is Sterling, but with a disappointing DGW and tough upcoming fixtures their are better alternatives elsewhere at the same value.

Man United CrestMan United

Review

The Devils were held at home to just a single point by a renewed Bournemouth defence, despite being reduced to 10-men shortly before half-time. Man Utd were lucky to not lose their top scorer Ibrahimovic to a red card after he elbowed Mings to the face in retaliation to the Bournemouth defender stamping on his head. The big Swede later went on to miss a penalty, costing Man Utd all three points.

Tips

With a now confirmed retrospective 3-match ban, Ibra will return to face Everton in the premier league on the 4th April. With Man Utd incurring a blank this week anyway, now is certainly the time to be selling Zlatan, especially with the likes of Kane hitting form and with Lukaku having a guarenteed fixture this week there are definately better alternatives elsewhere.

Middlesbrough CrestMiddlesbrough

Review

Despite conceding fewer goals than Arsenal, Man Utd and Man City this season, Brough find themselves in the dreaded drop zone. Middlesbrough’s recent success in the FA cup means they wont feature in GW28.

Tips

Normally I would sell any defenders from a team that could quite possibly be relegated. However, with M’Boro conceding only 30 goals this season I would hold your defensive property. In addition after GW29’s clash with Man Utd there fixtures remain admirable so I would be tempted to BUY Chambers or Friend (if fit) in preparation for DGW’s.

Southampton CrestSouthampton

Review

Claude Puels current plan seems to be simply to outscore their oppostion, racking up 9 goals in the last 3 PL matches. However, whilst their attacking capabilities look sound, they are defensibly unstable conceding three goals this week to an unlucky Hornets side. With the Saints facing a second blank this week followed by a tough away trip to Spurs, their defensive ability will certainly be put to the test be a ravaging Harry Kane.

Tips

Hold of buying for now until GW30 when the fixtures look brighter. Gabbiadini has scored in every Saints game he has played so is definitely my pick for when they face Bournemouth and Palace at home in weeks to come. Monitor both Tadic (16 pts) and Redmond (14 pts) who both exploded this week and may provide good budget midfield options for the double GW’s.

Spurs CrestSpurs

Tips

Harry Kane is in the form of his life, with 6 goals and 1 assist in his last 4 PL appearences, but sadly Spurs do not feature this week. With amazing fixtures right through until the end of the season I wouldn’t recommend dropping any Spurs players as both Alli and Eriksen have showed tremendous value. After the blank, owning one of Kane, Alli, Eriksen, Walker or Rose (if fit) must be essential as I back Spurs to go on and challenge for the title.

Stoke City CrestStoke City

Tips

Stoke have displayed great defensive ability recently so even with tricky fixtures it may be worth holding onto good value property like Grant (£4.4) and Pieters (£4.6). Monitor Crouch and Berahino, gametime may be an issue now for Crouch as we saw against City, although we may see another striker become valuable if Berahino can live up to his price tag.

Sunderland CrestSunderland

Review

Three losses on the bounce for David Moyes spells trouble as he is 6 points off Palace in 17th. Sunderland play Burnley, Watford and Leicester next after the blank so it is a crucial time for Sunderland to chase their relegation rivals.

Tips

Owners of Defoe and Pickford should hold. If Sunderland are going to stay up they will need to score (likely Defoe) and keep clean sheets. Pickford is great value in goal and offers the best save points potential of any goalie.

Swansea City CrestSwansea City

Tips

Siggy is essential for this blank period providing 3 goals and 4 assists in the last 6 gameweeks. Swansea provide other great value across the team, Llorente,who has proved to be a great budget forward, Olsson in defence adding 2 goals to the Swans attack after joining the club in January and Tom Carroll (£4.3), a cheap midfield option with bags of attacking potential.

Watford CrestWatford

Tips

Deeney is in great form, 5 goals in his last 6 PL games which makes him a fair option after the blank going into a nice run of fixtures. Monitor Niang who has showed great attacking threat and scoring potential since joining on loan. Avoid Hornets defenders. 

West Bromwich Albion CrestWest Bromwich Albion

Tips

Hold assets for the blank GW28, but look to replace Foster, Rondon and Phillips with better value players as the fixtures get tougher. Consider keeping McAuley and Brunt as their potential for goals from set pieces is significant against any side.

West Ham United CrestWest Ham United

Tips

Again, I would hold any Hammers players you own because of their guaranteed GW28 fixture, but would look to offload defenders after this. They have conceded 10 times in their last 5 PL fixtures and only bagged 1 clean sheet in the last 9. Lanzini at 1.5% ownership is a great differential ahead of kind fixtures and Carroll my be worth a punt this week after returning to the starting line-up.
