Well the final fixture week of the Irish Times Fantasy Premier League is well and truly underway with two games played on Tuesday night and with Arsenal having beaten Wigan 4-1 the Latics faith has been sealed and they will be plying their trade in the Championship next season.
Manchester City were also in action last night minus Roberto Mancini and David Platt and managed a 2-0 win over the already relegated Royals, so with those results in the bag City are now guaranteed second spot, the final relegation place has been decided and Arsenal now look in pole position to take fourth spot on the final day of the season ahead of their north London rivals Tottenham.
These results certain alter the fantasy landscape heading into the final weekend of action and with only two teams now having something to play for fantasy manager will have to keep a close eye on their players and their fixtures as they look to gain maximum points from the final fixture week.
So with plenty of managers still looking to make changes ahead of this weekend’s action it’s time for us here in the managers office to have a look at your midfield options for round 38.
Michu (Swansea) £3.9 million Fixture: Fulham (Home)
To say that we were a little surprised to see Michu appear out of the tunnel last weekend against Manchester United is an understatement after the midfielder had been ruled out for the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.
Clint Dempsey (Tottenham) £5.2 million Fixture: Sunderland (Home)
At this point in the fantasy premier league season it is quite simply all or nothing and with many fantasy managers sure to have Gareth Bale in their side perhaps it’s time to think outside the box when it comes to Tottenham coverage.
Phillipe Coutinho (Liverpool) £4.1 million Fixture: QPR (Home)
Last weekend’s 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage once again showed that there is life in Liverpool with the controversial Luis Suarez and heading into the final game of the season Liverpool coverage looks vital.
Santi Cazorla (Arsenal) £4.4 million Fixture: Newcastle (Away)
Prior to last night’s game at the Emirates Arsenal knew that anything less than a win would seriously dent their chances of picking up that fourth and final Champions League spot and they were not about to let it slip away.
