Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 33

The Manchester Derby was intriguing as always. Sergio Aguero scored a goal fit to win any contest, but City imploded way too many times earlier in the season for the result to make a difference. The race for top 4 is as hot as ever though, while QPR and Reading get more distant from safety.

On we march to the upcoming gameweek, where 5 teams double up, and Swansea, Tottenham and West Brom do not play.

Gameweek 33 fixtures

Arsenal v Norwich
Villa v Fulham
Everton v QPR
Reading v Liverpool
Southampton v West Ham
Newcastle v Sunderland
Stoke v Man Utd
Arsenal v Everton
Man City v Wigan
West Ham v Man Utd
Fulham v Chelsea

The Double Gamers

Arsenal have been in good nick of late, and a double home gameweek makes them the jackpot team this week. The main man for you is Santi Cazorla (10.1), followed by Gervinho (7.0) who has scored 7, 14, 7 in his last three gameweeks. Also Fabianski (5.3) might not do too badly against the league's second worst away attack (Norwich).

West Ham aren't the best away team, and Man United don't present the ideal home tie for a second game. But they will have the in-form Andy Carroll (8.2) back leading the line after missing out at Anfield due to the parent club rule, and he should score at least once.

Man United don't seem to be offering as much fantasy value from the strikers as before, but the "cheapest" sure thing given van Persie's Torres-like drought is Wayne Rooney (12.0). A gambling man (better you than me) would try his luck with Phil Jones (5.6).

Fulham are exactly like West Ham - not the greatest away team (not to forget Villa are in form), and are home to Chelsea for the second game. And again like West Ham, their in-form striker Dimitar Berbatov (7.4) is a must-have these days.

Everton are in double joy after their two main midfielders Fellaini (7.4) and Pienaar (6.6) return from their two-match suspensions. Do look to fit them in (replacements for Bale, maybe?). Also, Mirallas (6.8) has been sublime since his return from injury.

The Other Guys


Papiss Cisse (8.8) - facing Sunderland. A team whose last win was 3 months ago, and has gathered only 3 more points since. At home.

Luis Suarez (11.2) - Disappointing game last week, but surely he can't slip up against Reading?

Christian Benteke (7.3) - Unstoppable at the moment, and Fulham aren't the worst opposition to host.

Jay Rodriguez (5.2) - Same reasoning as above, replace Fulham with West Ham.


Phillipe Coutinho (7.0) - Generally impressive, and has impacted the numbers quite well since arriving from Inter. Like Suarez, he shouldn't be having a low score this time.

Adam Lallana (5.6) - The Southampton skipper found the net last week after a minor injury, and is wonderfully priced.

Yohan Cabaye (6.6) - Tends to perform well at home, and the opposition aren't Barcelona.


Luke Shaw (4.0) - The Saints are a side on the up, and West Ham have scored 9 goals away from home all season and not netted in their last two away games. Oh, and he's cheap.

Gael Clichy (5.6) - City have the league's best home defence, having let in just 11 at the Etihad all season, and should really shut Wigan out, and Clichy's the cheapest starting full back.

Jose Enrique (6.0) - It's Reading.


Boruc (4.4) - Cheap with a good chance of a clean sheet.

Guzan (4.8) - Not that he will shut Fulham out, but a combination of his price, the number of saves he usually makes and the less-than-savvy-when-playing-away opposition, you might be on to something here.
