Previews by @OurLogie and @Bet_McLean It’s all to play for in the Premier League this weekend. Chelsea can clinch the title which they really won a few weeks ago. They have almost stumbled to the finish line but they have been the best side in the league. The race to the top has been a […]

DEFENDER: Luke Shaw – £5.7m (Home v West Brom)
With Champions League football now pretty much secured – curiously having lost their last two games – Manchester United can now build for next season, during which Luke Shaw is sure to be an important player for them.
A popular pick at the start of the Fantasy season, Shaw has ensured somewhat of a nightmare first campaign at Old Trafford, but having made consecutive starts he’ll be hoping for an injury-free run to the end of campaign and the chance to create a springboard into 2015/16.
MIDFIELDER: Philippe Coutinho – £7.9m (Home v QPR)
Liverpool may be limping towards the end of the season, but in PFA Team of the Year member Philippe Coutinho they have certainly had one of the most watchable players within it.
The Brazilian seems to specialise in performing well against QPR, too. He scored the winner the last time the Rs visited Anfield in 2013, and he was also on target in the madcap 3-2 win the Reds achieved at Loftus Road in October.
FORWARD: Christian Benteke – £7.6m (Home v Everton)
The key element behind Aston Villa’s improvement under Tim Sherwood, forward Christian Benteke will be fired up for the visit of Everton to Goodison Park as Villa seek to take another step towards safety.
The Belgian will be up against a side who are on a high following the win over Manchester United, but he and Villa are no respecters of reputations right now, and it would be no surprise to see him find the net.
THE OUTSIDER: Connor Wickham – £5.6m (Home v Southampton)
It was this time last season that Sunderland’s Connor Wickham suddenly found terrific form as he shot the Mackems to safety, and the signs are that he could be following suit in this campaign.
The forward has netted against Crystal Palace and Stoke in his last two games, and with Sunderland facing a Southampton side who are suddenly leaking goals at the weekend and as one of only two sides who have a Double Gameweek left this season, he could be worth a gamble.
THE CAPTAIN: Eden Hazard – £11.4m (Home v Crystal Palace)
With the title set to be secured, it would make sense to focus on a man who has done so much to bring it back to Chelsea.
Eden Hazard – the best player in the Premier League this season and by far and away the top Fantasy Premier League points scorer – will face up to Crystal Palace knowing that his first English title is within touching distance, and you can expect him to do all he can to secure it.
Previews by @OurLogie and @Bet_McLean Other leagues may already be done and dusted but not so the Premier League. Chelsea I surely won’t lose the title at this stage but the most interesting battle of course is at the bottom. What a battle to avoid relegation and there are some huge games on offer this […]

Guest post written for FantasyYIRMA.com WILCARD WORRIES by @FPLHINTS For the last 5 FPL seasons I have used my all-season wildcard to coincide with the March/April Double Gameweeks (DGWs). I believe this is the most optimum time to use it in terms of points maximisation. I try and avoid using it for the mini-DGWs (i.e. […]
WILCARD WORRIES by @FantasyGaffer A 4-5-1 looks to be advantageous for the coming weeks, with little room for defensive rotation; I’d prefer to move in an extra midfielder or forward than spend for a fifth defensive option. The goalkeeper question is largely settled by the double-game week and not wanting to use a key […]

REVEALED: The #FPL Team You Should Pick For ‘Wildcard Week 34’, Featuring Arsenal, Chelsea & Liverpool Stars
So we’re doing something a little different this week.
Instead of the usual array of five players to pick for the upcoming Gameweek, we’ll instead be honouring the fact that it’s Wildcard Week by giving you our recommendation for the rest of the season, on one of the final weeks you can use your wildcard for 2014/15.
Ready? Let’s go:
GOALKEEPERS: David Ospina, Boaz Myhill
We know that we don’t often like discussing goalkeepers here, but the rise of Arsenal’s David Ospina since replacing Wojciech Szczesny in the Gunners goal in January makes him difficult to ignore.
With Arsenal facing two matches in Gameweek 37 then he can be a man to trust stand between your sticks, with West Brom’s Boaz Myhill a cheap substitute and also guaranteed to play for his side.
DEFENDERS: Nacho Monreal, Jeffrey Schlupp, Branislav Ivanovic, Alberto Moreno, Aaron Cresswell
Four of our five featured defenders face Double Gameweeks between now and the end of the season, with Leicester’s Jeffrey Schlupp, Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno all in action twice over the coming week.
Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal has done well to displace Kieran Gibbs from the Gunners’ left-back spot this season, whilst Aaron Cresswell could be a beneficiary of West Ham’s somewhat kind run-in to the end of the season, and has been hugely impressive in his first Premier League campaign.
MIDFIELDERS: Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho, Andy King, Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard
Double Gameweeks are again a key element of our midfield quintet, which is dominated by Liverpool and Chelsea players.
Your captaincy choices for this week should centre here, too, and perhaps a gamble on the Reds’ creator in chief Philippe Coutinho could pay off given that Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard face a tough game at Arsenal.
Jordan Henderson could also be a good left-field choice for the captain’s armband, whilst Leicester’s Andy King completes our five given that he’s scored twice in his last three games.
FORWARDS: Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Olivier Giroud
There are some players that you simply can’t ignore, however, and Harry Kane’s form this season means that he’s one of them.
The Tottenham forward faces a tough fixture at Southampton this weekend, and might find himself in the unusual position of being left on the bench by many Fantasy bosses, particularly if they’ve also got Sergio Aguero and Olivier Giroud to call upon.
Aguero has found his form again after struggling for a few weeks, whilst Giroud is now Arsenal’s main man after a terrific run of form, and the Frenchman has seen his ownership level rocket as a result.
