The Monday Night game. That Monday Night game. Bonus points for Baird, Stones (2) and Jagielka (3). Oh, and this: I’d be willing to wager 18.3% of fantasy premier league players reacted similarly. It isn’t just that Mirallas missed the spot kick, but that he took it at all. As noted just shy of everywhere, […]

DEFENDER: Alberto Moreno – £5.0m (Away v Aston Villa)
What’s this? A Liverpool defender? Will wonders never cease?
Well the Reds are facing an Aston Villa side who seem to have the same attitude to scoring goals as the rest of us do to getting our teeth pulled at the dentist, and Alberto Moreno has started the last three and also shown a willingness to get forward on the left side of Brendan Rodgers’ midfield four, so it’s not too crazy is it?
MIDFIELDER: Angel Di Maria – £9.5m (Away v QPR)
Manchester United will be eager to bounce back from their Southampton disappointment when they go to struggling QPR on Saturday, and luckily for them they’ll have Angel Di Maria on their side when they do so.
The Argentinean got 71 minutes under his belt in last Sunday’s defeat, and although things didn’t quite go to plan for him and his teammates there he’ll have plenty of chances to put things right in a match United really need to win.
FORWARD: Andy Carroll – £6.9m (Home v Hull)
His stunning goal against Swansea earned Andy Carroll all three bonus points last weekend, and he’ll be eyeing another impact at home to a Hull City side who look ripe to be beaten by West Ham.
On his day Carroll can be very difficult to stop, and if he can get the right service on Sunday afternoon then the big man could be a huge addition to your side.
THE OUTSIDER: Danny Ings – £5.7m (Home v Crystal Palace)
There are signs of life at Burnley, and after his fine goal against QPR last week the main source of that life is the forward Danny Ings.
Throw in the fact that he’s out of contract in the summer and could well be playing for a move should the Clarets end up going down, and you’ve got a pretty strong mix and one which could end up with a goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
THE CAPTAIN: Diego Costa – £11.2m (Away v Swansea)
Sergio Aguero is back in action and will fancy finding the net against Arsenal, but if you’re playing the percentages then it’ll surely pay to go with Diego Costa again.
After what seemed like a mini-slump the Chelsea man has scored in his last two, and that has every chance of becoming three as the Blues go to Swansea on Saturday.
After posting a couple of blanks in recent gameweeks, the recap column is back and firing – this column is the Alexis Sanchez of the YIRMA family. The Chilean actually saw negative net transfers for the first time since 18 October with a total -9424 transfers ahead of his 19 point outing against Stoke City. […]

DEFENDER: Marcin Wasilewski – £3.9m (Home v Aston Villa)
Giant Polish defender Marcin Wasilewski has played the full 90 minutes in each of Leicester’s last 11 league matches, and whilst their largely awful form doesn’t make that anything to write home about, he could be a useful cheap addition ahead of the home clash with an Aston Villa side which struggles to score goals.
After a win (and clean sheet) at Hull and comeback point at Liverpool the Foxes will be high on confidence, and if Wasilewski can blunt out Benteke and co then they will be feeling even better about themselves.
MIDFIELDER: Jordan Henderson – £6.0m (Away v Sunderland)
All the talk may be about another Liverpool midfielder at the moment, but with the next five months effectively being preparation to become the club’s captain, Jordan Henderson will have to assume an even greater responsibility in the Reds side.
He’s already one of Brendan Rodgers’ main men, and as he visits former club Sunderland in Saturday’s early kick-off he’ll be eager to prove why, and to add to his two goals and six assists so far this season.
FORWARD: Harry Kane – £5.6m (Away v Crystal Palace)
He’s the talk of the Premier League after his New Year’s Day heroics against Chelsea, and Tottenham’s Harry Kane has quickly become one of those Fantasy players that you really can’t be without.
The forward’s price and ownership percentage continue to rise, and there’s every chance that his goal count will too as Spurs go to Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
THE OUTSIDER: Olivier Giroud – £8.2m (Home v Stoke)
No doubt desperate to make up for his red card against QPR on Boxing Day, Olivier Giroud is ready to return from suspension for Arsenal as they host Stoke on Sunday, and the Frenchman can make a positive impact this time around.
These are sort of fixtures which Giroud cleans up in, and if you can afford it then he could be worth a gamble this week.
THE CAPTAIN: Eden Hazard – £10.7m (Home v Newcastle)
Make no mistake, the dramatic reversal at Tottenham really wasn’t in the script for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, and thee Portuguese will be plotting his side’s recovery against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard sat out the Watford fixture in the FA Cup but he’ll return here, and is likely to be the main man for the hosts yet again in a fixture he scored a hat-trick in last season.
