FA Cup Fifth Round – Fantasy Football Points

FA Cup Fifth Round – Fantasy Football Points


With the FA Cup taking centre stage last weekend, most Premier League sides were given some time off to rest up and recuperate. On the other hand, some teams (especially Europa League sides) will have played a number of games during this fortnight between Gameweeks 26 and 27. For instance, whilst some teams have played none, Chelsea will have played both legs against Sparta Prague on top of the Brentford FA Cup match. This is sure to have an effect when we get back to league action this weekend.

To follow the form of the Fantasy Premier League sides, here is a roundup of the FA Cup Fifth round:

That rounds up the fifth round of the FA Cup but we shouldn’t read too much into the results. The level of opposition should always be taken into account and teams like City, Chelsea and United should be expected to easily dispatch teams from lower leagues when playing at home. However, it’s still positive to see fantasy premier league players doing well and their performances should be taken into consideration for form and confidence.
