The footy season is drawing to a close with the penultimate gameweek up next. After City rose to the top of the table, all eyes will be on them as they travel to St. James’ Park (not the Sports Direct Arena) in Gameweek 37. Blackburn also take on Wigan in a massive match needing a win to keep their Premier League status intact. Here is our advice on who we think can get you some premier league fantasy points this coming gameweek:
- David DE GEA [SWA(H), 6.2m] – United have the advantage of playing after the Newcastle and City game, and will know that a win would either take them back to the top or help them to keep pace with their Manchester rivals. United will have been disappointed by the loss at the Etihad but they will look to keep it tight at the back against Swansea and a clean sheet looks likely in Gameweek 37.
- Thomas VERMAELEN [NOR(H), 7.2m] – Arsenal take on Norwich knowing that a win will be vital for their hopes of Champions League football next season. Norwich seem to be tired after a gruelling season where their hard work has been completed after guaranteeing their Premier League status for another season. Therefore Vermaelen has the opportunity to score points at both ends when Norwich visit the Emirates this weekend.
- Brede HANGELAND [SUN(H), 6.0m] – Hangeland was impressive in the 1-0 win at Anfield and was rewarded with 3 bonus points. With Sunderland up next, we fancy Hangeland to help Fulham to another clean sheet as they look to give their fans something to cheer about in their final home game of the season.
- Nedum ONUOHA [STO(H), 4.6m] – QPR face Stoke this weekend knowing that a win is needed to keep their premier league fantasy hopes alive and they will look to keep it tight at the back. QPR’s home defensive form has been quite strong, conceding only once in their last 3 matches and with Stoke struggling up top, Onuoha could collect his third consecutive home clean sheet.
- Tomas ROSICKY [NOR(H), 5.7m] – Rosicky seems to have put his injury troubles behind him finally and has rediscovered the ability which brought him to Arsenal in the first place. With Arteta and Walcott out, more responsibility rests on his shoulders and Rosicky will need to rise to the occasion to continue Arsenal’s push for Champions League football next season.
- Rafael VAN DER VAART [AVL(A), 9.6m] – Van der Vaart had an excellent Gameweek 36 and he has the opportunity to continue his form against a struggling Villa side desperate for points. It won’t be an easy game but Spurs have the ability to counter attack and finish clinically. VDV will look to put in a strong fantasy premier league performance as Spurs continue to fight for one of the remaining Champions League spots.
- Martin PETROV [WBA(H), 5.2m] – Petrov has been vital to Bolton’s recent resurgence and they will be hoping that he can dig out two more performances to save them from relegation. In front of his home fans, Petrov will look to keep their survival hopes alive against a Baggies side with little to play for.
- Clint DEMPSEY [SUN(H), 9.8m] – Dempsey has had an excellent season and Fulham will have a tough battle to keep hold of him this summer. With Sunderland up next, Dempsey will look to get his name on the scoresheet at Craven Cottage for one last time before the season ends.
- Djibril CISSE [STO(H), 5.7m] – Hughes will be wondering where QPR might be if Cisse wasn’t so prone to receiving his marching orders. Since joining the club, Cisse has scored in every match where he has completed over 80 minutes and against Stoke, he will have another opportunity to make up for his disciplinary issues.
- Wayne ROONEY [SWA(H), 12.9m] – Rooney will have been disappointed with his performance on Monday night and in his final game of the season at Old Trafford, he will be working his socks off to make up for it. He is integral to United’s play and with the home fans behind him, Rooney can help United to a much-needed victory over Swansea this weekend.
- Robin VAN PERSIE(C) [NOR(H), 13.1m] – Van Persie has struggled for goals of late but managed to grab one away at Stoke to pick up a vital point. In Arsenal’s final home match of the season, RVP will want to give his fans one last thing to shout about before the season finishes.
