Tuesday February 10
Arsenal v Leicester City
7.45pm GMT, Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal had a great chance to move into the top four against Spurs on Saturday, but they were beaten and dropped back to sixth place. They have still won five of their last seven league games and have kept clean sheets in three of their last four. Arsenal have only lost once in their 11 home games with only Chelsea and United winning more home games and they're the top scorers at home too.
Arsenal have some great attacking options with Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez (if he's passed fit) all worth having for fantasy managers.
Leicester were beaten at home to Palace on Saturday and remain rooted to the foot of the table with some very tough fixtures coming up. They have lost nine of their 12 away games so far with only Villa and QPR scoring less goals away from home. They have lost their last three league games and have only taken eight points from their last 17 games.
I can't see any Leicester players to recommend to fantasy managers right now.
Arsenal need to win this game to get back on course and I think they will do so by a few goals.
Hull City v Aston Villa
7.45pm GMT, KC Stadium, Hull
Hull got a very good point away to City on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to get them out of the relegation zone. That goal at City was their first goal in four games and they lost their three games before taking the point from City. They have only won two of their 11 home games and only Villa have scored less goals at home.
I still can't see any Hull players who might make a difference for fantasy managers right now.
Villa managed to score a goal at last at home to Chelsea on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to get them a point as they were beaten yet again. Only the bottom two have lost more away games than Villa and they're now only two points above the relegation zone. They have only taken three points in their last nine games and have failed to score in seven of those games.
Villa players aren't exactly making an impression for fantasy managers at the moment.
This is a real relegation six pointer and looks like it could be a very close game with a draw as the most likely outcome.
Sunderland v Queens Park Rangers
7.45pm GMT, Stadium of Light, Sunderland
Sunderland got back to their drawing ways when they got a good point away to Swansea on Saturday. They have taken four points from their last two games to move four points clear of the relegation zone after taking only one point from their previous five games. Sunderland have only won two of their 12 home games with only Villa and Hull scoring less goals at home.
Jermaine Defoe has looked good since signing for Sunderland and is possibly worth a punt for fantasy managers while Costel Pantilimon continues to impress in goal.
QPR were beaten again on Saturday and at home this time to leave them in deep trouble in the bottom three. They have lost all 11 of their away games so far and have the worst defensive record away from home with only Villa scoring less goals on the road. They have only taken two points in their last seven games, but despite their poor form they're still only two points from the relative safety of seventeeth place.
With Austin injured Leroy Fer might do well for fantasy managers, but it would be a brave person to choose QPR players away from home.
I think QPR will make a game of it for Sunderland, but might just lose by the odd goal.
Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur
8pm GMT, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool could only take a point away to Everton on Saturday and are still pushing hard to catch the top four. They have taken 18 points in their last eight games and have kept clean sheets in their last four. Liverpool have only won five of their 12 home games and have struggled to score goals at home too.
Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge are the best fantasy choices in the Liverpool team with their defenders doing well in recent weeks too.
Spurs got a very good win at home to Arsenal on Saturday which saw them climb above their local rivals into fifth place. Only the top three have won more away games than Spurs and only three teams have scored more away goals than them too. They have taken 22 points from their last nine games and are only two points outside the top four.
Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen are the Spurs players to have for fantasy managers right now with Kane in particular looking very good.
I think this will be a very close game and it could quite easily end in a draw.
Wednesday February 11
Chelsea v Everton
7.45pm GMT, Stamford Bridge, London
Chelsea beat Villa on Saturday to increase their lead at the top of the table to seven points after City could only draw with Hull. They have won 10 of their 11 home games and have the best defensive record at home with only Arsenal scoring more goals at home. They have taken 10 points in their last four games and their odds on winning the title are becoming shorter by the week.
Eden Hazard is the Chelsea player to have for fantasy managers right now with Diego Costa injured and Cesc Fabregas injured while all of their defenders are always worth considering.
Everton got a good point at home to Liverpool on Saturday to ease that little bit more away from the relegation zone. Everton are unbeaten in their last four games and have kept clean sheets in their last three, but they have only won once in their last eight. They have lost half of their 12 away games and no other team in the bottom half of the table has scored more goals away from home.
It's still not easy to see any Everton players making a difference for fantasy players right now.
I think Everton won't make things easy for Chelsea, but Chelsea will take the three points.
Manchester United v Burnley
7.45pm GMT, Old Trafford, Manchester
United got a last minute equaliser away to West Ham on Sunday to hold on to fourth place in the table. Only Chelsea have won more home games than United and only Arsenal have scored more home goals than them. They have only won three of their last eight league games though and have only kept clean sheets in two of those eight games.
Despite having some great attacking options like Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao, Wayne Rooney and Angel di Maria there are no United players excelling for fantasy managers at the moment.
Burnley were yet again pegged back after leading by two goals on Sunday, but at least the point at home to West Brom kept them out of the relegation zone. They have only won once in their 11 away games and only QPR have conceded more goals away from home. They have only won once in their last eight games and have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of those games.
Danny Ings continues to impress for Burnley and George Boyd hasn't done too badly recently either.
Despite Burnley being tough to beat I think United will win this game by a few goals.
Southampton v West Ham United
7.45pm GMT, St Mary's Stadium, Southampton
Southampton won away from home yet again on Saturday and the three points they got at QPR kept them firmly in third place. They have taken 19 points from their last eight games and have kept clean sheets in four of those games. Only Chelsea and United have won more games at home and only Chelsea have conceded less goals at home.
Southampton's defenders continue to impress for fantasy managers while Sadio Mane is looking pretty good too.
West Ham were pegged back in added time by United on Sunday in a game they probably deserved to win. They have only won three of their 11 away games and no other team in the top half of the table has conceded more goals away from home. They're in the middle of a very tough run of games and have only managed to win once in their last seven league games.
Stewart Downing is still the best fantasy performer in the West Ham team while Diafro Sakho might not be a bad choice either.
I think this will be a very close game and West Ham might just do enough to get a point out of Southampton.
Stoke City v Manchester City
7.45pm GMT, Britannia Stadium, Stoke
Stoke got a good point away to Newcastle on Sunday to continue their progress in the top half of the table. They have taken 14 points in their last seven games and have kept clean sheets in three of those games. They have only won five of their 11 home games and no other team in the top half of the table has won less games at home.
Despite Stoke doing quite well in recent weeks I still can't see any of their players to really interest fantasy managers.
City are in an awful run of form and look more likely to drop back to the pack chasing them than to catch Chelsea at the moment. No other team has won more away games than City though and only Chelsea have scored more goals away from home. They have only won once in their last six league games and haven't kept a clean sheet in seven.
Despite their current poor form it's still impossible for fantasy managers to ignore Sergio Aguero and David Silva.
City will have their work cut out to stop Stoke getting a famous double over them and I think they will do so, but only by taking a point.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle United
8pm GMT, Selhurst Park, London
Palace got another precious away win on Saturday when they beat Leicester and it helped them to move six points clear of the relegation zone. They have only won three of their 11 home games and only Villa and Hull have scored less goals at home. They have won three of their last four league games though and Alan Pardew looks like he will lead them to safety.
I still think Jason Puncheon looks like he could do well for fantasy managers and so does Mile Jedinak now that he's back from international duty.
Newcastle are stuck in mid table limbo yet again and don't look like ending it any day soon. They have lost six of their 12 away games with only three other teams conceding more goals away from home. Newcastle have only won two of their last nine league games, but the four points they have taken in their last two games have steadied the ship as John Carver takes control for the rest of the season.
Jack Colback has slowly but surely made himself the best fantasy choice in the Newcastle team.
I think Pardew might just get one over on his previous club in this game and lead Palace to a narrow victory.
West Bromwich Albion v Swansea City
8pm GMT, The Hawthorns, Birmingham
West Brom did very well to come from two goals down and get an important point away to Burnley on Sunday. They have only won three of their 12 home games and have only won once in their last eight league games. They have three points to spare overt the bottom three and they could really do with something from this game to help improve that situation.
I'm still not sure there are any West Brom players performing consistently enough to recommend to fantasy managers.
Swansea did well to come from behind and get a point at home to Sunderland on Saturday. They have only won once in their last six league games and have only won three of their 11 away games. They have found goals hard to come by away from home with only 11 in those 11 games.
With Gylfi Sigurdsson still suspended Lukas Fabianski and Kyle Naughton look like they might be the best fantasy choices in the Swansea team.
West Brom could do with a win and I think they might just manage a narrow one in this game.
That's it for this week.
See you next week.
