Anti-Fantasy, Players to Avoid – GW 29

Man City hat to wait until Thursday night to get back to London, this time to Emirates, and take all three points while thrashing Arsenal. Arsene Wenger was so disappointed in his starting eleven that he decided not to make any changes during the game.

The weekend before, Man Utd came from behind at Old Trafford and beat Chelsea 2:1, while Spurs had hard time to win at Selhurst Park with Harry Kane only scoring a winner at 88th minute. Liverpool’s attack was again ruthless against West Ham, with all three players (Salah, Firmino & Mane) scoring, while Emre Can scored opener.

West Brom lost at home against relegation contender Huddersfield, and at the same time Brighton won 4:1 against Swansea. It has to be mentioned that Lewis Dunk scored his 4th own-goal of the season!

Newcastle had 2 goals lead at Bournemouth, but Cherries scored twice in the last 10 minutes of the match to take one point from it. Leicester and Stoke played 1:1, and so did Burnley and Southampton with Gabbiadini finally scoring.
Also, Watford won 1:0 against Everton.


Top 3 worst choices in GW28 per positions:



  • Fabianski – 0 pts – 4 goals conceded
  • Cech – 1 pt – 3 goals conceded

  • Evans – -1 pt – 2 goals conceded, 1 yellow card (7th of the season)

Worst 5 choices of GW28:


Three changes occurred in the WORST TEAM OF THE SEASON after GW28:

Asmir Begović is now on goal, after Gomes missed his 5th game in the row due to injury.

Pablo Zabaleta is back in defense after a break, with Bournemouth’s Francis, Brighton’s Dunk and Huddersfield’s Schindler remains there.

Midfield again have 5 players, for of whom are the same as last week: Brighton’s Solly March, West Brom’s James McClean, Southampton’s Oriol Romeu and Everton’s Tom Davies. The latest addition is Newcastle’s Isaak Hayden.

Ashley Barnes scored in GW28, but he is still so upfront in forward category that it is really hard to believe that anyone could surpass him by the end of the season.


Bad predictions time:

Burnley – Everton: Burnley were overachieving for the better part of the season, so they finally started to fill a bit tired. Everton is now up there with only 3 points behind. I don’t believe this game will provide a lot of goals.

Leicester – Bournemouth: On the contrary, this is a game where we could possibly expect goals. Bournemouth had chances to jump up the table before, but they didn’t.

Southampton – Stoke: Probably one of the least interesting games to watch. At least it is a direct relegation battle.

Swansea – West Ham: Swansea played really good during their honeymoon period, but then they lost 4:1 at Brighton. It seems that honeymoon is now over. West Ham only has 3 points more than Swansea, so it could be an interesting match.

Spurs – Huddersfield: Tottenham is a clear favorite here. I’d be surprised if anything other than home win happen.

Watford – West Brom: I think it is safe to say that West Brom are going down. It is not just the position on the table and the amount of points they have. It is the way they play.

Liverpool – Newcastle: Well, by all means, this should be a bad they for Newcastle. If Liverpool manage to drop some points against side like Newcastle, then they don’t deserve to be up where they currently are.

Brighton – Arsenal: Arsenal could be emotionally exhausted after two loses against Man City (one of them occurred in EFL Cup final, other at their own turf). They’ll try to bounce back against Brighton.

Man City – Chelsea: Well, Chelsea got tough luck to play back-to-back games against Manchester teams. They lost against weaker one, so it is expected to lose against City, too.

Crystal Palace – Man Utd: Man-U is a favorite in this game. Clearly.


Good luck FPL managers!
