Bournemouth v Newcastle United
12.45pm GMT, Dean Court, Bournemouth
Bournemouth were beaten away to Southampton last week and continue to slide towards the relegation zone. They have taken only one point from their last five games and have conceded 15 goals in those games. Things have got gradually worse since Callum Wilson's injury and it could be a long hard season for them.
I can't see any Bournemouth players to interest fantasy managers at the moment.
Newcastle drew 0-0 at home to Stoke last week and they're still in the bottom three. They have only taken one point away from home and have conceded more goals away from home than any other team. Despite their awful away record they will still feel they have a chance away to the team directly above them.
Georginio Wijnaldum looks like the Newcastle player most likely to succeed for fantasy managers, but you can never be sure of Newcastle players doing well.
I think this will be a very close game and one which both teams need to win, but it might just end in a draw.
Leicester City v Watford
3pm GMT, King Power Stadium, Leicester
Leicester came from behind to win yet again last week and they're up to third in the table. They're the only team to score in every game so far and have only lost once in their 11 league games. They have won three of their five home games, but only West Brom and Everton have conceded more goals at home.
Both Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have been in great form for fantasy managers and have made themselves must have players.
Watford won 2-0 at home to high flying West Ham last week to put some real distance between them and the bottom three. They have only lost once in their five away games and have kept clean sheets in five of their 11 games. They're not an easy team to beat and look the most likely of the newly promoted teams to stay up.
Odion Ighalo has done really well for fantasy managers and is well worth having once he's passed fit to play while Heurelho Gomes and their defenders have done well too.
Watford will make things tough for Leicester, but I think Leicester's firepower will see them through.
Manchester United v West Bromwich Albion
3pm GMT, Old Trafford, Manchester
United could only draw 0-0 away to Palace last week and lost more ground at the top of the table. They are one of only two teams unbeaten at home and have kept seven clean sheets in their 11 games so far. No other team has conceded less goals than United, but they are by far the lowest scorers in the top five too.
United's defenders have been the best performers in their team for fantasy managers so far with Juan Mata doing well too.
West Brom lost at home to Leicester last week, but they're still in a fairly comfortable mid table position. They have taken 10 points from their five away games and have the best defensive record away from home. They have kept clean sheets in four of their five away games and six in their 11 games overall.
Boaz Myhill is still the best fantasy bet among the West Brom players while all of their defenders are doing quite well too.
West Brom aren't easy to beat away from home , but I think United will just about beat them.
Norwich City v Swansea City
3pm GMT, Carrow Road, Norwich
Norwich were beaten yet again last week, but only by one goal away to the league leaders. They have only won once in their five home games and only Bournemouth have conceded more goals than Norwich. They have lost their last four games and conceded 11 goals in those games and need to put a halt to their slide.
Nathan Redmond and Wes Hoolohan are the best fantasy bets in the Norwich team and are available at a good price too.
Swansea played well in the first half at home to Arsenal last week, but missed their chances and ended up losing 3-0. They have only won once in their last seven games and failed to score in four of those games too. Their only away win came against the bottom club and like Norwich they to put a stop to their slide.
Andre Ayew looks by far the best fantasy option in the Swansea team.
I think this will be a close game with both teams needing a result and a draw is probably the most likely outcome.
Sunderland v Southampton
3pm GMT, Stadium of Light, Sunderland
Sunderland looked to have a chance when they were drawing 2-2 at Everton last week, but ended up losing 6-2. They have only won once at home so far, but only five other teams have a better defensive record at home. They have only kept one clean sheet so far and followed that by conceding six goals in their next game.
I can't see any Sunderland players who might make a difference for fantasy managers at the moment.
Southampton won 2-0 at home to Bournemouth last week to continue their recent good run. They have taken 11 points in their last five games and scored 11 goals in those games too. They're one of the two teams unbeaten away from home, but they have drawn four of their five away games.
Graziano Pelle, Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic are all looking good for fantasy managers and most teams will have at least one of that trip in them by now.
I think Southampton might just be good enough to take the three points in this game.
West Ham United v Everton
3pm GMT, Upton Park, London
West Ham were beaten 2-0 away to Watford last week to put an end to their recent good run. They had taken 17 points from their previous seven games though and have taken some very big scalps already this season. They will be anxious to put that defeat at Watford behind them and get back to winning ways.
Dimitri Payet has been by far the best fantasy player in the West Ham team and has become almost a must have.
Everton put six goals past Sunderland last week to move into the top half of the table. Their only away defeat was against Arsenal and they have kept clean sheets in three of their five away games. If they're going to continue their progress up the table this is the type of game they need to take something from.
Romelu Lukaku has been the best fantasy performer for Everton so far while Ross Barkley and Arouna Kone haven't done too badly either.
This isn't an easy game to call and I have a feeling it might end with the honours even.
Stoke City v Chelsea
5.30pm GMT, Britannia Stadium, Stoke
Stoke drew 0-0 away to Newcastle last week and they have found goals hard to come by this season. They have lost three home games already and they failed to score in each of those games too. They did put Chelsea out of the Capital One Cup on penalties and will want to turn the champions over again.
Jack Butland has done very well for fantasy managers this season and can be bought at a great price too.
Chelsea were beaten yet again last week and are still struggling in the lower reaches of the table. They have only won once in five away games and have conceded 12 goals on the road. Their problems seem to mount weekly and they need some performances and results quickly or Jose Mourinho surely won't last.
Willian has been the best fantasy performer in the Chelsea team while others continue to under perform.
Both teams need a result from this game and I have a feeling they will share the spoils.
Sunday November 8
Aston Villa v Manchester City
1.30pm GMT, Villa Park, Birmingham
Villa were beaten yet again on Monday night and are firmly rooted to the foot of the table. They have only taken one point from their last 10 games and Remi Garde has a huge task trying to keep them up. They are the only team not to win a home game and they haven't kept a clean sheet since the opening day of the season.
Jordan Ayew has scored in his last two games and might be a good fantasy option although Villa players are usually best avoided.
City just about managed to win at home to Norwich last week to maintain their status at the top of the table. They have taken 10 points from their last four games and only West Brom have conceded less goals away from home. They're only ahead of Arsenal on goal difference, but a trip to the bottom club gives them an opportunity to possibly open that gap a little.
Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Wilfried Bony and Yaya Toure are all good fantasy options in the absence of Sergio Aguero and David Silva.
I can only see this game going one way with City winning by a few goals.
Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur
4pm GMT, Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal won away to Swansea last week to keep up the pressure at the top of the table. They have won their last five league games scoring 16 goals in the process and keeping three clean sheets. They have taken more points away from home than at home so far, but only United have conceded less goals at home.
Mesut Ozil has been in excellent form recently along with Olivier Giroud and all of Arsenal's defenders too.
Spurs won at home to Villa on Monday night to continue their ascent of the league table. They have only lost one of their five away games and only three other teams have scored more goals away from home. They have taken 17 points from their last seven games and have kept clean sheets in three of those games.
Harry Kane might just be back in business for fantasy managers and the Spurs defenders have done well too.
This will be a far from easy game for Arsenal, but they should be good enough at home to win.
Liverpool v Crystal Palace
4pm GMT, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool got a very good win away to Chelsea last week and it was Jurgen Klopp's first league win. They are unbeaten in their last six league games, but they have only won two of those games. They have only won two out of five at home and only four other teams have scored less goals at home.
Phillippe Coutinho did very well last week and could be worth considering for fantasy managers while Christian Benteke looks good too.
Palace got a good point at home to United last week after a poor run of results. They have won three of their five away games and only one other team has conceded less goals away from home. The draw last week was their first one in over 20 league games and they will do well if they can get a draw in this game.
Johan Cabaye has been the best fantasy performer in the Palace team and their defenders have done quite well too.
Liverpool won't have it all their own way in this game, but I think they will get a narrow victory.
That's it for today
See you tomorrow
