So another cracking gameweek is over with some awesome games and some nail-biting results. While Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs manage to win their matches, though not convincingly, Manchester City drop points against Liverpool after Sergio Aguero leveled Steven Gerrard’s cracking goal which saw Liverpool take the lead over their counterparts.
The biggest disappointment was Chelsea who again slumped to Newcastle after new buy Sissoko scored twice to aid Newcastle in their comeback and win the match. But the maximum goals were scored in the Everton versus Aston Villa match which witness the ball find the net six times, thrice for each team. Therefore, gameweek 25 has been quite a spectacle for the Fantasy Premier League managers and some very interest conclusions can be drawn from this week’s games.
Danile Sturridge soon becoming a FPL asset
The Chelsea outcast who joined Liverpool recent has been in quite good touch right from his game at the club and if his cracking goal against Manchester City is anything to go by, he is soon becoming a stuff of which Fantasy Premier League dreams are made of. His returns of 21 points in the last four matches are definitely a bargain for a striker who costs only £7.6m and is employed as the lead striker in a club with Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard assisting him. His 6.7% ownership is sure to get up if his form continues and it is highly advisable to have him in your sides before his price further increases.
Impressive new signings
Although it is still early days but still some of the January signings are clearly impressing everyone with their performances and the often saving their team’s backs. A special mention must be made of Newcastle midfielder whom they brought in from France in January. He is clearly showing his intentions clear and it was mainly his aggressive play that saw him grab two goals and Newcastle a win. Another player who has been really drawing the attention of everyone with his debut performance is Nacho Monreal of Arsenal. He has been really good with his attacking instincts and it looks certain for him to score a goal every now and then for his team. At £5.5m, he is a real bargain for the Fantasy Premier League manager who cannot afford to have Evra or Baines in their team.Bale continues to fetch points game after game
Fellaini, Bale score points
The beast within Marouane Fellaini is unleashed yet once again as he steals with the show to score two goals and make an Everton comeback after Everton trail Aston Villa by 3 goals to 1. He goes on to earn 15 points for his team and is certainly one of the contenders to finish the year with the highest points. Another contender for the top spot, Gareth Bale looks to in magnificent touch and his goal against West Brom bear enough evidence of this fact. Although his price is too high right now, but still we want to advise anyone who can afford him, just go for him!
Stoke City looking defensively fragile
The initial solidness of their defence is long gone and now Stoke City are just consuming a number of cheap goals, goals that certainly does not put their defenders on the wish list of many Fantasy Premier League managers. Their defensive woes can be traced to their lack of stability in the midfield, which fails to create any sort of pressure on the opposition, but until and unless they sort out their problems, it is best to keep the Stoke defenders out of one’s team and maybe pick up one defender from the new team which is showing some solidarity in the defence, QPR.
