After two weeks with no matches, most of us are dying to get back- finally we have a weekend to look forward to!
This week, I’d like to remind you about two sets of double fixtures that are coming up. As the league has done a better job at scheduling this year, there are fewer of them this year- make sure that you capitalize on these while you can!
In Gameweek 14, both Blackburn and Aston Villa play twice. As these are both strong teams, you should have no shortage of players to choose from. Friedel, Bentley, Santa Cruz, Barry, Laursen, Agbonlahor and Young are all solid possibilities, and none of them costs more than £7.6m!
Don’t forget to plan for next week either, where Arsenal and Newcastle will face each other in an extra fixture. At the risk of offending the Newcastle fans in our midst, I would recommend limiting your choices to the Arsenal side, unless you’re looking for a bargain in NZogbia at £5.3m. I just don’t see many points to be had from playing Arsenal, even at home. One last note- for those of you who were considering dropping Fabregas this week because of his suspension, remember that you’ll get that game back next week!
Depending on your situation, you might also consider making some extra transfers this week- the double fixtures could more than compensate for whatever points penalty you have to take.
Till next week, good luck!
Editor’s Note: No EPL Talk Email Newsletter this week due to most people having tomorrow (Friday, 11/23) off work. We’ll back on a regular weekly schedule starting November 30th.
