Everton v Sunderland
12.45pm BST, Goodison Park, Liverpool
Everton were beaten away to Villa last week to put an end to their recent good run. They had taken 16 points from their previous six games though and will look to put that defeat behind them. They have only lost three of their 17 home games and have won the last four at home without conceding a goal.
They might have shipped three goals last week, but Everton's defenders still look like a good choice for fantasy managers.
Sunderland got a priceless win at home to Southampton last week, but they're still in the relegation zone with only four games to go. They have taken seven points from their last four games, but they finish their season with three very tough games after this one. They have only won two of their 16 away games and haven't won away since beating Newcastle in December with no other team scoring less goals away from home.
Despite their recent improvement I still can't see any Sunderland players to recommend to fantasy managers, but they do play twice next week.
Everton have been very difficult to beat at home and difficult to score against too which leads me to believe they will win this game.
Aston Villa v West Ham United
3pm BST, Villa Park, Birmingham
Villa got a very important win at home to Everton last week, but they're still only two points above the drop zone. They have won two of their last three and four of their last eight league games and have overcome their inability to score goals since Tim Sherwood took the reins. They have still only won four of their 17 home games, but at least they're no longer the lowest scorers at home.
Christian Benteke is the Villa player to have for fantasy managers at the moment.
West Ham got a rare win at home to Burnley last week to move them back into the top half of the table. That was only their third win in their last 18 games, but they have at least kept clean sheets in their last two games. They have only won three of their 17 away games, but only six teams have scored more goals away from home.
I don't think there are any West Ham players who might interest fantasy managers for the rest of the season.
I think Villa will be good enough to take the three points and more or less assure their survival for another season.
Hull City v Burnley
3pm BST, KC Stadium, Hull
Hull were well beaten at home to Arsenal on Monday night and they're only one point above the relegation zone. They did win their previous two games though and kept clean sheets in both of them too, but they have to win this game with two very tough games to finish their season. They have only won five of their 17 home games with only three other teams scoring less goals at home.
I can't see any Hull players to recommend to fantasy managers right now.
Burnley were beaten away to West Ham last week and their chances of staying up are as good as over. They have only taken one point from their last six games and they failed to score in all of those games too. They have only won once in their 17 away games and no other team has scored less goals away from home.
I can't see any Burnley players to recommend to fantasy managers either.
This is a game both teams need to win and I think Hull will be the ones to get the all important three points.
Leicester City v Southampton
3pm BST, King Power Stadium, Leicester
Leicester won again last week at home to Newcastle, but they're still only one point above the drop zone despite their great recent run. They have won five of their last six games and have scored 15 goals in their last seven. They have only won five of their 17 home games, but they have won three of their last four at home.
Jamie Vardy looks like the Leicester player most likely to succeed for fantasy managers while Casper Schmeichel and Mark Albrighton don't look too bad either.
Southampton were beaten away to struggling Sunderland last week, but they can still finish as high as fifth. They have only taken four points from their last five games though and if they're not careful Swansea could still catch them for seventh place. They have lost eight of their 17 away games, but they have the best defensive record on the road.
Southampton's defence hasn't been up to it's usual standard recently and it's not easy to see which of their players might do well for fantasy managers.
I think this will be a very close game and it might just end in a draw.
Newcastle United v West Bromwich Albion
3pm BST, ST. James's Park, Newcastle
Newcastle were beaten yet again away to Leicester last week and they're now only two points above the bottom three. They have lost their last eight games and failed to score in three of them while conceding 18 goals. They have only won six of their 17 home games with only Sunderland conceding more goals at home, but they are the top scorers at home among the struggling teams.
I can't see any Newcastle players who might make a difference for fantasy managers even if Papiss Cisse is back from suspension at last.
West Brom got a great win away to United last week to dispel any lingering relegation worries. They have taken seven points from their last three games and kept clean sheets in each of them too. They have only won four of their 17 away games, but only Southampton have conceded less goals away from home.
West Brom's defenders have done very well in recent weeks and could be worth considering for fantasy managers.
Newcastle desperately need to get something from this game, but I don't think they will.
Stoke City v Tottenham Hotspur
3pm BST, Britannia Stadium, Stoke
Stoke lost away to Swansea last week, but they're still on course for the best points total in the Premier League. They have only won once in their last seven games, but they're still in the top half of the table. Stoke have won eight of their 17 home games and they're the lowest scorers at home in the top half of the table with only Spurs conceding more goals at home among those teams in the top 10.
Charlie Adam has been the best Stoke player for fantasy managers recently with three goals in his last five games.
Spurs were beaten at home by City last week and it looks like sixth place will be the best they can manage. They have only won once in their last five games and cannot finish ahead of Arsenal for the 20th season in a row. They have won eight of their 17 away games and only the top three have scored more goals on the road than Spurs.
Nacer Chadli has been the best fantasy performer for Spurs in recent weeks, but Harry Kane has had a very good season and must still be considered by fantasy managers.
I think this will be a very close game and the chances are it will end in a draw.
Crystal Palace v Manchester United
5.30pm BST, Selhurst Park, London
Palace were beaten away to Chelsea last week and their chances of finishing in the top half of the table are now very slim. They have lost their last three games without scoring a goal after winning the previous four. They have lost more home games than any other team with only Burnley, Sunderland and Villa scoring less goals at home.
Palace players haven't done well for fantasy managers in the last few weeks and it might be best to avoid them in this game.
United were beaten at home by West Brom last week and it looks like they will more than likely finish fourth this season. The have lost their last three games without scoring a goal and could even slip to fifth if that form continues. They have only won five of their 17 away games and have scored an awful lot less goals on the road than the three teams above them.
United players haven't done well for fantasy managers in the last few weeks and it's not easy to see which of them might do well in the last three games.
Both of these teams come into this game on a bad run and I think Palace's run will continue with United taking the points.
Sunday May 10
Manchester City v Queens Park Rangers
1.30pm BST, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
City won away to Spurs last week to stay second, but they're only ahead of Arsenal on goal difference and have played a game more. They have won their last three games and could easily win their final three which would give them every chance of finishing second. They have won 12 of their 17 home games with only United and Arsenal scoring more goals at home.
Sergio Aguero is the must have City player for fantasy managers and David Silva hasn't done too badly either.
QPR were beaten away to Liverpool last week and a defeat in this game would mean they will be relegated no matter how the other games go. They have only taken five points in their last 10 games and will need to win their last three to have any chance of staying up. They have lost 14 of their 17 away games which is more than any other team and they have conceded more away goals than any other team too.
QPR players haven't done well in the last few weeks, but Matt Phillips and Leroy Fer might not be the worst options for fantasy managers.
I can't see anything other than a City win in this game.
Chelsea v Liverpool
4pm BST, Stamford Bridge, London
Chelsea won at home to Palace last week to clinch the title with three games to spare. They have taken 19 points from their last seven games and kept clean sheets in four of their last five. They are unbeaten at home and have won 14 of their 17 home games and they have the best defensive record at home too.
Eden Hazard has been the go to Chelsea player all season long for fantasy managers and all of their defenders have been very good choices recently too.
Liverpool just about won at home to QPR last week to keep their slight hopes of a top four finish alive. That was only their second win in six games and they will need to win this game too if they are going to keep their Champions League qualification hopes alive. They have lost seven of their 17 away games and have conceded more goals than they have scored on the road.
Phillippe Coutinho might be the best of the bunch in the Liverpool team for fantasy managers at the moment.
I think this will be a very close game and the chances are Chelsea will win it by one goal.
Monday May 11
Arsenal v Swansea City
8pm BST, Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal won away to Hull on Monday night to make themselves strong favourites to finish in the top three. They have won nine of their last 10 games and need to win this game to keep their hopes of finishing second very much alive. They have only lost one of their 16 home games with only United scoring more goals at home.
Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez all look good for fantasy managers at the moment with Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud to be considered too.
Swansea won at home to Stoke last week and they still have hopes of catching Spurs or Southampton to finish seventh. They have taken 13 points from their last six games and will need to get something from this game if they are to have any hope of making more progress up the table. They have only won six of their 17 away games and no other team in the top half of the table has conceded more goals on the road.
Jonjo Shelvey has been the best Swansea player for fantasy managers recently.
I think Swansea will make a game of it, but Arsenal will continue their excellent form with another win.
That's it for this week.
See you next week.
