Tuesday December 2
Burnley v Newcastle United
7.45pm GMT, Turf Moor, Burnley
Burnley are unbeaten in three games now after coming from behind to get a late point at home to Villa on Saturday. They have only won once in their seven home games though and only Villa have scored less goals at home. If they're going to have a chance of staying up they will have to start winning more home games.
Danny Ings scored again on Saturday to show he might just be worth considering for fantasy managers.
Newcastle had won five league games in a row before they lost to West Ham on Saturday, but they weren't helped by the sending off of Moussa Sissoko. They have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six games and are proving to be a good defensive unit. They will be looking to get back to winning ways against struggling Burnley, but injuries and suspensions could hamper their chances.
The Newcastle defenders are still looking pretty good for fantasy managers at the moment along with Ayoze Perez.
I think this will be a very close game, but Newcastle might just have enough to shade it.
Leicester City v Liverpool
7.45pm GMT, King Power Stadium, Leicester
Leicester have slipped to the foot of the table after taking only two points from their last eight games. They have failed to score in six of those games and need to find a way to reverse their fortunes very quickly. Despite their current bad run they have only lost once in their six home games, but they have drawn four of those games.
I still can't see any Leicester players to recommend to fantasy managers.
Liverpool just about got back to winning ways at home to Stoke on Saturday and will see this game as a chance to build on that result. They have lost four of their six away games though and only three other teams have conceded more goals away from home. They have only kept three clean sheets so far and that weakness at the back is proving more costly this season with their lack of last season's firepower.
Raheem Sterling is still probably the best fantasy choice in the Liverpool team, but none of their players are doing much for fantasy managers right now.
This is an ideal chance for Liverpool to win again, but I think Leicester might just take a point off them.
Manchester United v Stoke City
7.45pm GMT, Old Trafford, Manchester
United have won their last three games in a row and look like they might be starting to find some form and confidence. They have won five of their seven home games and only Chelsea have taken more points at home. A win in this game could move them within a point of third place if other results go their way.
Wayne Rooney looks like the best fantasy choice in the United team with Angel di Maria injured.
Stoke were a little unlucky to lose to Liverpool on Saturday and they have played well against the better teams in the league so far. They have already won away to City and Spurs and will want to add United to that list. Unusually for Stoke they have taken more points away from home than at home so far this season.
I still can't see any Stoke players setting the fantasy football world alight right now.
I think this game could be quite close, but United might just edge it.
Swansea City v Queens Park Rangers
7.45pm GMT, Liberty Stadium, Swansea
Swansea have only lost one of their seven home games and only Chelsea and Southampton have conceded less goals at home. They're eighth in the league but within three points of the top four and capable of beating any team. A home game against one of the bottom three has to be seen as an ideal chance to get another three points.
Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wilfried Bony are still the two Swansea players to have for fantasy managers.
QPR won at home to Leicester on Saturday to lift themselves off the foot of the table. They have lost all six of their away games so far though and that's something that has to change if they're going to have a chance of staying up. They are the lowest scorers away from home as well conceding more goals away from home than any other team.
Charlie Austin looks like the QPR player to have for fantasy managers at the moment.
I think QPR will make a game of this, but Swansea will win by the odd goal.
Crystal Palace v Aston Villa
8pm GMT, Selhurst Park, London
Palace followed up their home win over Liverpool by getting a good point away to Swansea on Saturday. Those four points have given them a little breathing space at the wrong end of the table and a win in this game would improve their situation further. They have only won two of their six home games though and haven't found goals too easy to come by on their own ground.
Mile Jedinak is proving to be the Palace player most likely to succeed for fantasy managers.
Villa almost got their first win in a long time on Saturday, but Burnley hit them with a late equaliser. They have drawn their last three games though and have taken more points away from home than at home. They have done very well to get eight points away from home with only three goals in their seven games.
I still don't see any Villa players to make a difference for fantasy managers right now.
I think Palace will be good enough at home to win this game.
West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United
8pm GMT, The Hawthorns, Birmingham
West Brom lost their third game in a row at home to Arsenal on Saturday and they failed to score in all three of those games. They have only won once in their seven home games and are sliding quickly towards the wrong end of the table. They're only two points above the bottom three and it looks like they could spend the season fighting the drop.
Saido Berahino has been the best fantasy choice in the West Brom team, but the goals have dried up for him recently.
West Ham beat Newcastle on Saturday to stay fifth in the table after a good start to their season. They have scored 12 goals in their six away games and only the top two have more goals away from home. They will see this game as a very good chance to get another away win and a few goals with it too.
Stewart Downing has been the best fantasy performer for West Ham so far with Aaron Cresswell doing well in recent weeks.
I think West Ham will have enough to win this game and continue West Brom's woes.
Wednesday December 3
Arsenal v Southampton
7.45om GMT, Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal got a win away to West Brom on Saturday to halt a run of two defeats in a row. They have only won two of their six home games though and need to improve their home form. They're only two points off the top four and need to put a good run together to close that gap.
Alexis Sanchez has been by far the best fantasy performer in the Arsenal team so far, but he hasn't fared well in the last two games.
Southampton came crashing back to earth on Sunday when they lost 3-0 at home to City and dropped to third in the league. They have some tough games coming up and need to try to bounce back as soon as possible. They have taken 10 points from their six away games and have the best defensive record away from home.
Southampton's defenders have all done well so far but they have a tough run of games at the moment while Graziano Pelle has gone off the boil recently.
I think Arsenal might just be able to get the better of a good Southampton team in this game.
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
7.45pm GMT, Stamford Bridge, London
Chelsea have a 100% record at home and a six point lead at the top of the table. They have the best defensive record at home and only Southampton have scored more goals at home. They will have to do without the suspended Diego Costa, but will still be favourites to win this game.
With Costa suspended Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and all of the Chelsea defenders are very good fantasy options.
Spurs have come from behind to win their last two games and keep within two points of the top four. Only the top two have taken more points away from home than Spurs and they will feel they have a chance in this game. They will have to ride their luck to have any chance against a team with Chelsea's home record.
Christian Eriksen continues to impress for Spurs while Nacer Chadli is a good option if he has returned from injury.
Despite the absence of Costa and Spurs away record I think Chelsea will win this game by a couple of goals.
Everton v Hull City
7.45pm GMT, Goodison Park, Liverpool
Everton have only won two of their six home games and have the worst defensive record at home too. They led away to Spurs on Sunday but ended up losing and dropping back to tenth in the table. They will be strong favourites to win this game and improve their home record in the process.
Leighton Baines is the Everton player most likely to succeed for fantasy managers with Seamus Coleman and Romelu Lukaku as good back up.
Hull are on a very bad run at the moment and are only outside the relegation zone on goal difference. They have lost their last four games in a row and only scored one goal in the process. They have only won once in seven away games so far and will do well to get anything out of this game.
There are no Hull players making an impression for fantasy managers at the moment.
I think Everton will get back to winning ways with a couple of goals to spare.
Sunderland v Manchester City 7.45pm GMT, Stadium of Light, Sunderland
Sunderland got a very good point at home to Chelsea on Saturday and have really improved defensively since Southampton put eight goals past them. They have only lost once in their seven home games, but they have drawn five of those games too. They're three points above the relegation zone and will do very well to have widened that gap after this game.
Despite their recent improvement I can't see any Sunderland players to recommend to fantasy managers with the possible exception of Costel Pantillimon.
City got a very good win away to Southampton on Sunday to move up to second and within six points of Chelsea. They're the top scorers away from home and only Chelsea have more points away from home. If any team can catch Chelsea it will be City, but it's a very tough task.
Sergio Aguero is the must have striker for fantasy managers at the moment while Yaya Toure is finally finding some form too.
I think Sunderland will make a game of it for City, but City will still take the three points.
That's it for this week.
See you next week.
