Fantasy Friday: Gameweek 19 EPL Fantasy Tips

Premier League Fantasy Tips

Fantasy Friday brings you tips for each gameweek of the Premier League. In week 19 of the EPL there are several quality matches as well as solid players to look at including in your fantasy Premier League team.

The Boxing Day matches were a day for goals as well as changes in points. The best fantasy goal keeper, Everton’s Tim Howard, had a horrible match week after getting a red card that resulted in the game winning goal for Sunderland. The goal scorer, Ki Sung-Yeung ended up having an excellent match day.

Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez along was the high scorer while Arsenal’s Theo Walcott had an excellent day. Loic Remy could have had more points, but his missed penalty hurt him.

This weekend might be another week to put Luis Suarez on the bench. Wayne Rooney has been putting in some solid performances recently and with Manchester United travelling to Norwich could continue racking up points.

I would say that choosing players from Newcastle, Arsenal, Everton, Southampton, Chelsea and Liverpool will all be risky. These are some huge matches that could go either way. Everton and Southampton defenders and midfielders might be worth looking at as this could end a 0-0 draw. The same could be said for Chelsea and Liverpool. Newcastle and Arsenal looks like it could be a much more open match and be a good one for some midfielders and forwards.

Other low scoring matches could include West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion as well as Hull City v Fulham. With Swansea City facing a struggling Aston Villa, it could be the week that the Swans go out and get some goals.


Some of the most in form players recently to look at include:

Wayne Rooney – Manchester United forward

Seamus Coleman – Everton defender

Yaya Toure – Manchester City midfielder

Mesut Ozil – Arsenal midfielder

Jay Rodriguez – Southampton forward

Theo Walcott – Arsenal midfielder

Eden Hazard – Chelsea midfielder

Vito Mannone – Sunderland goalkeeper

Yohan Cabaye – Newcastle United midfielder

Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling – Liverpool midfielders

Danny Welbeck – Manchester United forward

For this week there are several players out either injured or suspended. Some particular players to note include:

Tim Howard – one match suspension

Ramires – one match suspension

Sergio Aguero – injured

Aaron Ramsey – injured

Jan Vertonghen – injured, but questionable

Dejan Lovren – illness, questionable
