Both Spurs and QPR play their game in hand in this Gameweek and their players are a must for fantasy managers if you can get the right ones. It's also a good idea to make a player from one of those teams captain this week with Harry Kane and Charlie Austin as the prime candidates.
Tuesday March 3
Aston Villa v West Bromwich Albion
7.45pm GMT, Villa Park, Birmingham
Villa were beaten yet again at the weekend when they lost 1-0 away to Newcastle to stay in the bottom three. Villa haven't won in their last 12 league games and failed to score in nine of them. They have lost their last seven in a row and they have only won two of their 13 home games as well as being the lowest scorers at home and away.
I can't see any Villa players who could possibly make a difference for fantasy managers right now.
West Brom got a very good win at home to Southampton on Saturday to move even further away from the relegation zone. They have only lost once in their last eight games and have kept clean sheets in their last three league games. They have only won two of their 13 away games, but only Southampton have conceded less goals away from home.
West Brom's defenders have been doing well since Tony Pulis took the reins and are worth checking out for fantasy managers.
I think this will be a very close game and might just end with the spoils shared.
Hull City v Sunderland
7.45pm GMT, KC Stadium, Hull
Hull were beaten away to Stoke on Saturday to end a run of seven points from three games. They might have lost six of their 13 home games, but no other team in the bottom half of the table has conceded less goals at home. They have moved four points clear of the relegation zone and have the opportunity to increase that gap with a home game against one of the teams below them.
I still don't see any Hull players to recommend to fantasy managers right now.
Sunderland were beaten away to United on Saturday after putting up a good fight for much of the game. They have only taken six points from their last 10 games and have failed to score in their last three games. They have a three point cushion over the bottom three, but only Villa have scored less goals than them and that lack of goals is keeping them in the relegation dog fight.
Costel Pantilimon and Anthony Revilliere have done quite well for fantasy managers despite Sunderland's position in the table.
This is a game neither team will want to loose and I think it might end in a draw.
Southampton v Crystal Palace
7.45pm GMT, St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton
Southampton were beaten away to West Brom on Saturday and have dropped back to sixth after spending so long in the top four. They have only won once in their last five games and have failed to score in their last three. They have only taken one point in their last three home games and have failed to score in those three games too.
Despite their recent problems Southampton's defenders are still a good option for fantasy managers.
Palace got a very good and well deserved win away to West Ham on Saturday. They have taken 15 points in their last nine games and moved eight points clear of the relegation zone as a result. They have won their last three away league games and only six teams have scored more away goals than Palace.
Last week was the first time in quite a while I didn't recommend Jason Puncheon and he had a great week for fantasy managers so I will have to go for him again.
The way Palace are playing they have a real chance in this game, but I think Southampton will just about get a much needed win.
Wednesday March 4
Manchester City v Leicester City
7.45pm GMT, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
City were deservedly beaten away to Liverpool on Sunday and are still five points behind Chelsea having played a game more. They have only won two of their last seven league games and will have a very tough task trying to catch Chelsea now. They have only won eight of their 13 home games which is the main reason they have fallen so far behind Chelsea.
Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Yaya Toure are the best fantasy choices in the City team with Aguero in particular being a must have.
Leicester didn't play last weekend because Chelsea were busy winning the Capital One Cup final. They managed a draw away to Everton in their last game and it was their first point in five games. They have lost 10 of their 14 away games and only QPR have lost more games on the road.
There are a few Leicester players who might make an impression for fantasy managers over the next few weeks, but maybe not in this game.
I can't see anything other than a City win in this game.
Newcastle United v Manchester United
7.45pm GMT, St. James' Park, Newcastle
Newcastle got their second win under John Carver on Saturday when they beat Aston Villa. They have won six of their 13 home games, but only five teams have conceded more goals at home. They have only won three of their last 12 league games, but they look safe in their mid table position.
Papiss Cisse scored again for Newcastle on Saturday and is probably the Newcastle player most likely to perform for fantasy managers while Daryl Janmaat hasn't been too bad either.
United beat Sunderland on Saturday, but they were again far from convincing against 10 men. They have only won five of their last 11 league games and their top four place looks very vulnerable. They have only won three of their 13 away games and have conceded as many as they have scored on the road.
Wayne Rooney scored twice at the weekend and could be worth having for fantasy managers if he continues to play in a more forward role.
I think Newcastle will run United very close and might just get a point out of the game.
Queens Park Rangers v Arsenal
7.45pm GMT, Loftus Road, London
QPR didn't play at the weekend, but they stayed out of the relegation zone with both Villa and Burnley losing again. They have only won once in their last nine games and are only outside that bottom three on goal difference. They have won five of their 13 home games and only Newcastle have a better home record in the bottom half of the table.
With QPR playing twice at home this week their players have to be seen as good fantasy choices and Charlie Austin is by far the best of them with Matt Phillips looking good recently too.
Arsenal won at home to Everton on Sunday to stay one point ahead of United in third place and close the gap on second placed City to four points. They have only won six of their 14 away games, but only the top two have more away goals than Arsenal. They have won six of their last seven league games and kept clean sheets in four of those games too.
Mesut Ozil has been the most impressive Arsenal player for fantasy managers recently, but he has been ably assisted by Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud and maybe even Hector Bellerin too.
This looks like it will be a very close game with both teams needing the three points and I think Arsenal will win narrowly.
Tottenham Hotspur v Swansea City
7.45pm GMT, White Hart Lane, London
Spurs didn't play in the league at the weekend as they were involved in the Capital One Cup final. They have only taken one point in their last two league games and are now six points outside the top four although they do have a game in hand. They have only won seven of their 14 home games and no other team in the top half of the table has conceded more goals at home.
With two games this week Spurs players are a must have for fantasy managers with Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen the best of them.
Swansea got a good win away to Burnley on Saturday and are now only four points behind Spurs. They have only won four of their 13 away games, but have taken 10 points from their last six games on the road. They are the lowest scorers away from home in the top half of the table and no other team in the top half has conceded more away goals either.
Swansea defenders have done well in recent weeks and are worth considering for fantasy managers.
I think Spurs will get over their cup final disappointment and emerge with a narrow victory.
Stoke City v Everton
7.45pm GMT, Britannia Stadium, Stoke
Stoke won at home to Hull on Saturday to move within a point of eighth place. They have won four of their last six league games and have taken 10 points from their last five home games too. They have only won six of their 13 home games though and have conceded as many goals as they have scored at home.
I still don't see any Stoke players to write home about for fantasy managers at the moment even though Peter Crouch has three goals from very limited game time in his last four games.
Everton were beaten again at the weekend when they lost 2-0 away to Arsenal to stay only six points clear of the relegation zone. They have only won three of their 14 away games and only three teams have conceded more goals away from home. They have only won once in their last 11 league games and need to turn things around or they will find themselves in real trouble.
It's hard to see any Everton players to recommend to fantasy managers at the moment.
I think this will be a very close game and the chances are it will end in a draw.
West Ham United v Chelsea
7.45pm GMT, Upton Park, London
West Ham were beaten at home to Palace on Saturday and continue to slide their way towards mid table mediocrity. They have only won once in their last 10 league games and only once in their last five at home. They have won half of their 14 home games, but the team are struggling right now with the fans are beginning to become a little restless.
Stewart Dowing remains the best fantasy choice in the West Ham team while I think Diafra Sakho might not be a bad choice either.
Chelsea won the Capital One Cup final on Sunday and kept their five point lead at the top of the table when City were beaten by Liverpool. They have won four and drawn two of their last six league games and have kept clean sheets in three of those games. Only City have taken more points and scored more goals away from home than Chelsea.
Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa are all good fantasy choices along with any of Chelsea's defenders and especially Branislav Ivanovic.
West Ham are capable of giving Chelsea a real scare and I think they might just get a point out of this game.
Liverpool v Burnley
8pm GMT, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool won at home to City on Sunday and are now up to fifth in the table. They are unbeaten in their last 11 league games with 27 points from those games and six clean sheets too. They have only won half of their 14 home games though and have scored less and conceded more at home than the rest of the top six.
Raheem Sterling and Phillippe Coutinho are in fine form for fantasy managers while Liverpool's defenders are worth considering too.
Burnley were beaten at home by Swansea on Saturday and are still in the relegation zone. They have only won once in 13 away games and only QPR have conceded more goals away from home. They have only won once in their last 11 league games and their next five games are all against teams in the top seven.
Danny Ings has been the best fantasy choice in the Burnley team, but he might not do so well in this game.
Liverpool are in very good form at the moment and should be too strong at home for Burnley.
Saturday March 7
Queens Park Rangers v Tottenham Hotspur
3pm GMT, Loftus Road, London
QPR play their second home game of the week and they need to get something from at least one of those games to stay out of the relegation zone. Neither game is easy for them though as they are both against teams in the top six. They will only have four home games left after this week and cannot depend on their awful away form to give them a chance of staying up.
As I said above Charlie Austin is the QPR player to have for fantasy managers with Matt Phillips as a possibility.
Spurs play their game in hand while other teams are busy in the FA Cup and they need the three points to close the gap on the top four. They have looked a little vulnerable in recent games and won't find it easy against a team fighting for their Premier League survival. They have won half of their 12 away games and only the top three have scored more goals on the road.
As I said already Harry Kane is a must have in a double Gameweek and Christian Eriksen isn't a bad bet either.
I think this is a game which could go either way, but will more than likely end in a draw.
That's it for this week.
See you next week.
