Manchester United’s Angel Di Maria And The 5 #FPL Players You Must Pick This Week

Gameweek 13

DEFENCE: Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m) – Away v Sunderland

We’ve highlighted him before, but Cesar Azpilicueta really is one of the most consistent defenders in the game even if he doesn’t get the headlines – or the FPL ownership – to show for it.

Lacking the goal threat of the rest of his teammates he does at least make up for that with raiding runs from left-back, and more assists do seem to be on the way.


MIDFIELD: Angel Di Maria (£10.0m) – Home v Hull

That noise you can hear is Manchester United slowly clicking into gear, and although things might remain at mess at the back for them they have at least got outright quality going forward in Angel Di Maria.

Assists in his last two games take his tally to six for the season, and he’ll be looking to add to his three goals when Hull come calling to Old Trafford.


FORWARD: Harry Kane (£4.9m) – Home v Everton

He could be making appearance in ‘The Outsider’ section, but at his price you really can’t ignore Tottenham’s Harry Kane ahead of a home meeting with Everton.

The forward has forced his way to the front and centre of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, perhaps despite the manager’s best wishes, and after goals against Aston Villa and Hull he could be worth a gamble for one week only.


THE OUTSIDER: Jefferson Montero (£5.7m) – Home v Crystal Palace

Speaking of gambles… It’s a curveball, I’ll admit, but that is what the outsider pick is all about.

Swansea’s Jefferson Montero has looked lively as he started all of his side’s last four games, during which he’s provided two assists. He’s got Palace and QPR at home in his next two fixtures, and with just 0.3% ownership he could cause quite a bit of damage in your mini-leagues.


THE CAPTAIN: Diego Costa (£11.1m) – Away v Sunderland

You know the drill by now.

19. And Of Course, No Fantasy Football!













 started out as most random fantasy football leagues do…

over alcohol.


People often ask ” What does the name mean? “

Long story short – One bloke says to the other “I need a name for the mini-league”

“the what??” came the reply.

“the fantasy league, we have to give it a name”

“I haven’t got a (Insert word of your own choosing ) clue. Sure name it after Yir Ma!”


This statement was thus taken literally and FantasyYIRMA was born!!

Since 2008 more than 10,000 people have now entered a Fantasy YIRMA mini-league.

The main league is free to play and the £100 prize fund is typically paid by the loser in the bet between the FantasyYIRMA admin team.

To take £100 off your mate in a bet is fun- to make him sponsor the league for an entire season …is funnier.

I think it’s fair to say, that if you had told me would still be running almost two years after it started I would have chuckled immensely… but it has… we have… and as both the twitter (@FantasyYIRMA ) account and website have continued to grow, it genuinely is a pleasure to be involved in the ridiculously brilliant world of Fantasy Football.

The interaction online from #FPL fans across the world has been fantastic! Our goal now is the same as it was from day one – to try and provide interesting and quality insight and to help create as much interaction around the game as possible. Simply watching the evolution of the game over the past few years as the level of interest continues to grow has been fascinating. 

Best of Luck to everyone for the 2014/15 season from us at FY!
