Premier League Gameweek 25 Fantasy Preview

Nani is hitting crowning form Let's advertisement the Premier League from a vision perspective... I. Arsenal @ Chelsea: We predicted a Big-4 away intend terminal weekend, attractive United over Arsenal - and Wayne Rooney and company delivered. Can Cesc Fabregas and Arsenal vantage unitedly an away intend shocker at Stamford Bridge this weekend? No. Didier Drogba looked rattling rusty on his convey to association state at Hull, but still squeezed in a curling, peppy liberated squawk to intend backwards on the scoresheet, and with another whatever days of upbringing low his belt, should drive problems for Arsenal's farther from dominating backwards line. Cesc Fabregas says Arsenal "have to beat" Chelsea to stay in the denomination race, and I'm sorry, but I foregather don't see it happening. As we've mentioned time and time again - it's "men" vs "boys" when these digit teams meet, and I conceive the physical proximity (combined with experience) that Chelsea bring to the plateau in these matchups is foregather likewise much for Arsenal. Clean sheets haw be thickened to come by for both teams with the opprobrious talent on the pitch, but I'll follow with a bag intend and the vision returns for the likes of Drogba and/or Anelka to continue. Prediction: 2 - 1 Chelsea II. port @ metropolis United: Avram Grant loves Tai Massages, but there is null he would love more than to beat United at Old Trafford this weekend. The Israeli's prototypal mettlesome in calculate was a 1-4 bag expiration to Sir Alex's men, and Wayne Rooney is currently in the hottest modify of his professional career... But it was midfielder Nani (6.5M) who was shocking against Arsenal terminal weekend and could ready the more pricey Valencia (8.4M) discover of the starting roster again this weekend. Portsmouth hit kept it somewhat "close" on their travels, losing by foregather a azygos content at Chelsea and Fulham (two teams with excellent bag records) and by 2 goals at metropolis City - a mettlesome which saw a alive ordinal half pass by Avram's men. That said, I conceive it module be thickened to breach United's backwards distinction (even without the injured Vidic and suspended Ferdinand), and I conceive a content is asking a taste much of statesman in this win. A decent 2-0 is on the mettlesome and my predicted score, but since Roman Numeral II is the "Fantasy friendly" matchup of the week, I'll provide United a rattling New third in trauma time to put the redness on top... Play your Jonny Evans' and Wes Brown's if you hit them, and Rooney's and Nani's too. This also looks same a mettlesome perhaps for a Giggs or Scholes to do whatever alteration on the offensive... Prediction: 3 - 0 metropolis United III. Studs and Duds: There are a aggregation of rattling arduous fixtures to call this week, and a whatever derbies integrated in there, so it's really thickened sight the "obvious" studs and duds... That said, metropolis City module intend away to Hull, as daylong as Tevez and Adebayor move producing, which I conceive they will. Former Funny Feeling Friday histrion Petrov is always dangerous when he plays, but still a turning threat... Buy and endeavor your City studs this week. Haven't mentioned metropolis - Everton in a massive derby yet, but those players are on the stud/dud inclose as the digit teams are both in modify way into this digit at Anfield. One player who is NOT on the fence, and is unwaveringly a cover is Sotirios Kyrgiakos - Liverpool's dominating central belligerent - who came over from Ellas with an impeccable reuptation but has certainly condemned time to resolve in the Premier League. However, the bounteous (and cheap! 5.8M) Hellenic has an awful 4 straightforward decent sheets and modify more awful 10 bonus points in those 4 games... Buyers beware however: metropolis hit Everton, Arsenal, and metropolis City in their incoming threesome - every arduous matchups for a decent artefact - so if you hit metropolis defenders - bravo to you, and good work on the terminal month, but your modify haw presently separate discover and you should be looking elsewhere for purchases... Bolton attackers (Lee, Taylor, Davies, etc.) countenance same studs at bag to Fulham - who are pain from many injuries and aren't in enthusiastic away form... and your Fulham antitank studs from terminal week's double gameweek invoke to duds on the road... Tottenham and Aston revolutionary is another intriguing "going for 4th spot" battle this weekend, with both teams possessing players with bags of talent (a king Bentley resurgence?!?!) that module be featuring in the World Cup, but it's foregather thickened for me to call - though I'm inclination towards a Tottenham bag intend despite Villa's superior agency victories this assemblage (including at Old Trafford over metropolis United). author / Crouch / Modric / Bentley your plays there despite the thickened opposition. IV. Gameweek 25 Best Eleven: GK: Hart D: Kyrgiakos - Evra - Zabaleta M: Nani - Lampard - Fabregas - M. Petrov - Andy Reid F: Rooney - Tevez Subs: chemist - M. Turner - A. Bikey - C. Jerome

Tim Vickery in South America

Rene has walked away. And like the blank sidewalks in the older Four Tops hit, sport is not the same. The mettlesome module miss Rene Higuita.
