Aston Villa v Watford
3pm GMT, Villa Park, Birmingham
Villa were well beaten away to Everton last week and are still rock bottom in the league. They're the only team not to win a home game so far and they're the lowest scorers at home too. They haven't won since the opening day of the season and last week's performance would suggest new manager Remi Garde will have a tough job keeping them up.
I can't see any Villa players to remotely interest fantasy managers at the moment.
Watford lost to a late goal at home to United last week in a game in which they probably deserved a point. They have only lost two of their six away games and those two defeats were against teams in the top three. Their defensive record is much better than the other promoted teams and that could be what keeps them up this season.
Odion Ighalo has been the best fantasy performer in the Watford team while their defenders and goalkeeper haven't done too badly either.
I think this will be a close game, but I have a feeling Watford might just get the edge.
Bournemouth v Everton
3pm GMT, Dean Court, Bournemouth
Bournemouth drew away to Swansea last week after leading 2-0 and they're still in the relegation zone. They have only won once in their six home games and only two teams have scored less goals at home. They have only taken two points from their last seven games and have only one clean sheet in their 13 games so far.
It's still not easy to see which Bournemouth players will do it on a consistent basis for fantasy managers.
Everton looked very good in bearing the bottom club 4-0 last week. They have only lost three of their six away games and only three other teams have conceded less goals on the road. They have taken seven points from their last three games and scored 11 goals in those games.
Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley have been the outstanding fantasy performers in the Everton team and are well worth having.
I think Everton will have too much firepower for Bournemouth and will win by a couple of goals.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle United
3pm GMT, Selhurst Park, London
Palace were beaten at home by Sunderland on Monday night in a game they really should have won. No other team has lost more games at home and only four teams have scored less goals on their own patch. They have only won once in their last five games and they failed to score in three of those games.
Yohan Cabaye has been the best fantasy performer in the Palace team, but he has gone off the boil recently.
Newcastle were well beaten at home by Leicester last week, but they're still just out of the relegation zone. They have only won once in their six away games and they're the lowest scorers on the road with only two goals in those games. Despite putting six past Norwich in one game only four teams have scored less goals than Newcastle and they have failed to score in seven of their 13 games.
Georginio Wijnaldum has been the stand out fantasy player in the Newcastle team, but he has blown hot and cold.
I think Newcastle will make a game of it, but Palace should get the better of them.
Manchester City v Southampton
3pm GMT, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
City were well beaten at home to Liverpool last week and dropped back to third as a result. They have won more home games and scored more home goals than any other team despite losing two of their seven home games. They have only won once in their last four games and only scored three goals in those games.
Sergio Aguero is back from injury and has to be a serious consideration for fantasy managers if they can afford him.
Southampton lost at home to Stoke last week to put an end to their recent good run. They're one of only two teams unbeaten away from home and no other team has conceded less away goals. They have only won two of their six away games though and I'm sure they would be more than happy with another draw in this game.
With Graziano Pelle suspended Dusan Tadic and Sadio Mane could be the Southampton players to have for fantasy managers.
Southampton could be ideally set up to hit City on the break, but I still think City will win.
Sunderland v Stoke City
3pm GMT, Stadium of Light, Sunderland
Sunderland got a very important win away to Palace on Monday night to give them some hope of climbing out of the bottom three. They have only won once in their six home games and only Bournemouth have conceded more goals than Sunderland. They have won two of their last four games to move within one point of safety though and a draw in this game could move them out of the bottom three.
I still can't see any Sunderland players who might make a difference for fantasy managers at the moment.
Stoke got a very good and fully deserved win away to Southampton last week. They have only lost one of their seven away games and only three other teams have conceded less goals on the road. They have taken 13 points in their last six games and they kept clean sheets in five of those games.
Ryan Shawcross has done well for fantasy managers since returning from injury and Jack Butland has been very good too.
I think Stoke will continue their good run by taking the three points in this game.
Leicester City v Manchester United
5.30pm GMT, King Power Stadium, Leicester
Leicester were well worth their 3-0 win away to Newcastle last week which saw them go to the top of the table. They have won their last four games and have scored more goals than any other team. They have only lost one game and they are the only team to have scored in every game so far. Jamie Vardy has a chance to set a record for the most consecutive Premier League games a player has scored in and I hope he can do it.
Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have made themselves must haves for fantasy managers.
United got a last minute winner away to Watford last week which saw them go second behind Leicester. They have only lost two of their seven away games and they have three clean sheets on the road too. A win in this game would see them go to the top of the league and Leicester might just play in a way that suits United.
United's defenders have been impressive for fantasy managers so far with Juan Mata doing well too.
This is a very tough game to predict and it could go either way, but I have a feeling United will sneak it.
Sunday November 29
Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea
12.00pm GMT, White Hart Lane, London
Spurs easily disposed of West Ham last week to move within two points of the top four. They're one of only two teams unbeaten at home with only City and Everton scoring more goals at home. They're unbeaten since the opening day and that 12 game streak is a record one for them in the Premier League.
Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen have been in excellent form for fantasy managers recently and are well worth considering.
Chelsea got a win at last when they beat Norwich 1-0 last week to move up to 15th in the table. They have lost four of their six away games with only four other teams conceding more goals on their travels. They need a good win to kickstart their season and three points in this game might just do the trick if they can manage it.
Despite their win last week none of the Chelsea players have done well for fantasy managers so far, but maybe that's about to change.
In spite of their poor form this season Chelsea will still give Spurs a hard time and I think they will get a draw.
West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion
2.05pm GMT, Upton Park, London
West Ham were well beaten away to Spurs last week, but they're still sixth in the league. They haven't won in their last three games and have only won two of their six home games. Only Leicester and City have scored more goals than West Ham, but no other team in the top half of the table has conceded more goals.
Manuel Lanzini looks like he could be the best fantasy choice in the West Ham team with Dimitri Payet out for the next few months.
West Brom got a very good win at home to Arsenal last week after trailing 1-0. They have won three of their six away games, but only Newcastle have scored less goals on the road. They have four clean sheets in those six away games and no other team has conceded less away goals.
Boaz Myhill has been the best fantasy performer so far in the West Brom team and their defenders have done well too away from home in particular.
I think West Ham should be good enough to get the better of West Brom and take the three points.
Liverpool v Swansea City
4.15pm GMT, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool got a great win away to City last week. They have only won two of their six home games and have conceded more goals at home than they have scored. They need to find some consistency as they haven't won two league games in a row since the first two games of the season.
If he's fit to play Phillippe Coutinho looks like the Liverpool player most likely to do it for fantasy managers.
Swansea came from two down to draw at home to Bournemouth last week. They have only won once in six away games and that was at Villa who are at the foot of the table. They started the season well, but have slipped down the table with only one win in their last nine games.
Andre Ayew continues to impress for fantasy managers while Jonjo Shelvey has done well recently too.
I think Liverpool should be good enough at home to win this game.
Norwich City v Arsenal
4.15pm GMT, Carrow Road, Norwich
Norwich put up a good fight away to Chelsea last week, but ended up losing 1-0. They have lost three of their six home games and they're only three points above the drop zone. Any points they can get from this game would be a huge boost in their bid to avoid relegation.
Norwich players haven't done too well for fantasy managers recently, but Nathan Redmond and Wes Hoolohan still look they can do well.
Arsenal lost the chance to go to the top of the table when they lost away to West Brom last week. They have won more away games than any other team and no other team has scored more away goals either. If they're going to challenge for the league this is exactly the type of game they need to win.
Mesut Ozil has made himself a must have player for fantasy managers while Olivier Giroud is performing very consistently too.
I think Arsenal should be good enough to get back to winning ways by a couple of goals.
That's it for this week.
See you next week.
