As Gameweek 34 draws to a close with only Arsenal and Wigan to play tonight, here is our look back on the weekend’s action:
Norwich 1-6 Man City
Tevez stole the show with a hat trick to keep City in the title race. Their away form has been City’s biggest issue this season but with Tevez back and chomping at the bit, City smashed 6 past Norwich. With significant attacking threat, players to consider bringing in include Tevez (11.7m, pricey but a very handy differential as he’s only owned by 1.4%), Aguero (11.1m, safer and slightly cheaper option but has an ownership of 27.1%) and Silva (9.6m, who will surely pick up points now that City are firing on all cylinders).
Sunderland 0-0 Wolves
A lacklustre Sunderland side failed to score past Wolves, giving them their first clean sheet since back in August 2011. Many fantasy premier league managers will have backed Sessegnon and McLean to score heavily but they failed to deliver. The one positive is that Sunderland kept a clean sheet too.
Swansea 3-0 Blackburn
After their disappointing loss at QPR, we were expecting a reaction at home and Swansea did not disappoint. Sigurdsson once again stole the show with a goal, an assist and 3 bonus points to top it all off. He has been a premier league fantasy star since joining Swansea on loan and it seems a shame that we might not get to see him play next season.
West Brom 1-0 QPR
QPR were unable to build on the 3-0 midweek win over Swansea and were undone by a cracking goal by Dorrans. At this end of the season, any points are vital, and Roy Hodgson will be delighted with the victory.
Man United 4-0 Aston Villa
Man United kept the gap at the top to 5 points with a victory over Villa. They dominated possession and pressure, and the goals were inevitable. It should be noted that despite Rooney picking up a big fantasy football points haul, he didn’t look completely comfortable and gave the ball away a number of times before being subbed off right after his second goal.
