Fantasy Football Tips and Predictions for 11th April 2015

Fantasy Football Preview and Tips for this Weekend

Welcome to another week of my fantasy football guide. Last week we saw a whole host of goal of the season contenders, some magnificent goalkeeping displays, and league defeats for Liverpool and Man City.

 

As we enter the climax of the Premier League campaign, who can we count on to win us some fantasy points? We will review last week’s team and see if any if my players deserve to stay in and who gets booted out!

Team for next week:

 

Goalkeeper

 

1. David De Gea

Next fixture: Man City (H)

Previous match: vs. Aston Villa– Won 3-1

The Spanish stopper will be very disappointed to have let in such a soft goal against Villa to ruin his clean sheet. However, with United’s good form coming into the Manchester derby, along with City’s recent away day blues, I believe that United will come away with the victory. De Gea’s performances in the big games have been brilliant this season and as City have only scored 2 goals in their last 4 away games, I think they may draw another blank against an in form United.

 

Defenders



 

2. John Terry – Chelsea

Next fixture: QPR (A)

Previous match: vs. Stoke – Won 2-1

Charlie Adam’s goal of the season contender was the reason that Terry didn’t score points for a clean sheet in the match against Stoke, but he could hardly be blamed for letting this one in! With an away game against a QPR next and the league title in sight, Terry will be rallying his troops for one final push to secure the league. I expect Chelsea to take away a comfortable win from Loftus Road despite QPR’s resurgence in form.

3. Hector Bellerin – Arsenal

Next fixture: Burnley (A)

Previous match: vs. Liverpool – Won 4-1

The little Spanish fullback opened the scoring with a cultured finish cutting in from the right flank. Any striker would have been proud of this goal. Bellerin has taken great steps to making himself a permanent fixture at right back for Arsenal, so much so that I have included him in my fantasy team. A visit to Burnley is up next where Arsenal will have to fight hard to come away with the points. Lately there have been very few goals in the games at Turf Moor and given The Gunners’ current good form, I expect them to maintain another clean sheet in this one.

4. Nathaniel Clyne – Southampton

Next fixture: Hull (H)

Previous match: vs. Everton – Lost 1-0

Clyne didn’t have the best of matches against Everton as Southampton slipped to defeat, however their defensive record at home is brilliant this season and with Hull to face next at St Mary’s, I expect The Saints to take a comfortable victory and a clean sheet. Clyne has been a regular starter and accumulated a bagful of fantasy points and as such is a good pick for any team.

5. Jose Fonte – Southampton

Next fixture: Hull (H)

Previous match: vs. Everton – Lost 1-0

 

Southampton have conceded the fewest goals in the league this year and Jose Fonte is one of the main reasons why. He didn’t have the best of games in his last outing but at home is where The Saints are best. They have conceded just 10 goals in 16 games at St Mary’s and against a struggling Hull side they should have no problems.

 

Midfielders

 

6. Ander Herrera – Man United

Next fixture: Man City (H)

Previous match: vs. Aston Villa – Won 3-1

Herrera was the star man against Villa and has impressed so much that he has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer. He is showing signs of becoming United’s new Paul Scholes and has become a fixture in the midfield at Old Trafford. With arch rivals City up next, now will be the time for Herrera to show everyone what he can do in the big matches. I am expecting a great performance from the little Spaniard against the Sky Blues

7. Santi Cazorla – Arsenal

Next fixture: Liverpool (H)

Previous match: vs. Liverpool – Won – 4-1

Cazorla is yet another example of a diminutive Spanish midfield maestro. He was at the heart of everything good against Liverpool in their dominant 4-1 victory and was unlucky not to receive more fantasy football points for his performance. It’s Burnley up next for Arsenal, and although it will be a hard fought game, I expect Arsenal to continue their good form and take away all 3 points.


8. Eden Hazard – Chelsea

Next fixture: QPR (A)

Previous match: vs. Stoke– Won 2-1

Scored from the penalty spot and created Chelsea’s winner for Loic Remy. Hazard is Chelsea’s go-to man when they are in need of a goal and he, along with a few others, will be in the running for the Player of the Year award. QPR are up next and I expect Hazard to continue his magnificent form.  

9. Philippe Coutinho

Next fixture: vs. Newcastle (H)

Previous match: vs. Blackburn (FA Cup)– Won 1-0

The little Brazilian was shut out against Arsenal as the Gunners dominated the match, however against Blackburn in the Cup, Coutinho proved to be the decisive factor. His second-half goal was brilliantly taken and with so much pressure on Liverpool to win the match, his performance cannot be underestimated. I think Liverpool will bounce back in the league, starting with a win over Newcastle.

 

Forwards



 

10. Harry Kane – Tottenham

Next fixture: Aston Villa (H)

Previous match: vs. Burnley – Drew 0-0

Kane had a quiet day against Burnley, thanks in no small part to his teammates constantly fluffing their lines and miscuing passes. Spurs were hopeless, but only because Burnley pressed so well and defended stoutly. I think that against Villa, Spurs will bounce back and Kane will be given more opportunities to score against a Tim Sherwood side that likes to play open and attacking football. There will be chances for him, and Kane is usually on target.

11. Wayne Rooney – Man United

Next fixture: Man City (H)

Previous match: vs. Aston Villa – Won 3-1

I am backing Rooney to be the star man against City in the Manchester derby. Since being reinstated to his preferred striking position, the England and United captain has shown everybody why he must play up front. His work ethic and clinical finishing had been sorely missed and with him leading the line, United’s form has been magnificent. A win against City would be massive and there is no one better than Rooney to fire up his teammates and lead from the front.
