The Irish Times Fantasy Premier League swings back into action this coming weekend after the recent international break and with only eight games to go fantasy football managers are running out of time as they look to topple the leaders in their mini leagues and claim first spot.
It’s all about sizing up your opposition from this point in and looking to find not only those elusive points but differentials to boot, after all there is little point in having the same players as your opponent as you will not make up any ground that way.
So with that in mind we have included a goalkeeping differential and what some may consider a sure thing in this week’s tips, so depending on whether or not you need it, there is a differential option for you to consider.
Jan Mucha (Everton) £3.5 million Fixture: Stoke (Home)
Having put on a decent display in his first game this season Mucha conceded just the one goal against Reading in round 28, but no one could have expected that the Slovakian international would go onto claim a clean sheet against Manchester City last time out.
David de Gea (Manchester United) £4.5 million Fixture: Sunderland (Away)
It might seem a little obvious that we have once again gone for the United shot stopper but when it comes to fantasy management sometime the answer is just staring you in the face and it can’t be ignored.
