Pre-Match Analysis: Gameweek 25

A Pre-Chinese-New-Year bullet-train-like EPL schedule is coming! Have you formulated your strategies?

Fantasy Predictor
My predicted results of matches this week.

LIV VS EVE [2-0]
BOL VS FUL [1-2]
BUR VS WHU [1-2]
STO VS BLA [1-0]
SUN VS WIG [0-1]
TOT VS AST [1-2]
BIR VS WOL [1-0]
CHE VS ARS [2-0]

Fantasy Focus
Analysis of big showdowns this week.

Liverpool vs Everton
Prediction: 2-0

The second leg of the Merseyside premier league derby will commence on this Saturday with the blues visiting to Anfield.

Both sides had been gone through the most traumatic stages of their league progress this season and had shown strong form recently. The reds had only conceded one in their last six fixtures thanks to the last signing of last summer Sotirios Kyrgiakos which vastly improved their aerial defence; the blues are showing threatening offence with Tim Cahill being the recent hot man after Steven Pienaar.

Any derby will be exciting and tough, but this time my votes go to Liverpool. They are hosting at Anfield and they've retrieved their long lost confidence. Moreover they are really good in important matches despite of their sloppy form back to several months before.

Still, beware of Liverpool's inconsistency this season which might turn you down.

The future of reds.

Chelsea vs Arsenal
Prediction: 2-0

Arsenal's back-to-back super-duper hardcore games continue as they will visit to Stamford Bridge on this coming Sunday.

The gunners first two tough run had been ended disappointingly with only one point and one goal. The big defeat against United on Emirates had further flattened the morale of Wenger's side.

Meanwhile, table-topper Chelsea had lost two points on the replacement fixtures with Hull City on midweek which might prove costly for the title as Manchester United start to have an edge over them to lift the trophy again. Ancelotti would not like this to happen.

With Bendtner had just been recovered without fitness, I don't think Arsenal can win this one. Just copy Ferguson's tactics and Ancelotti should grab the points at ease.

Too bad he's not Van Persie.

The latest premier league news to enrich your day.


Chelsea's captain John Terry had recently became the focus of the media after the news of him having an affair with his former teammate, Wayne Bridge's girlfriend, Vanessa Perroncel spread to the public.

In fact, this is not the first time where Terry betrayed his wife. But unfortunately for this time, he betrayed his friend as well.

This will be a big problem for Capello. Should he remain the captain as captain? If not, who should replace him?

Bad babe.

Fantasy Commentary
My view towards matches played this week.

Arsenal 1-3 Manchester United

A day full of catastrophe for the gunners as United crushed them and their title hopes with a stylish 3-1 victory over them.

Over the course, Nani was the man with total threat to the side led by Fabregas and this proved to be fatal when faulty Almunia blocked Nani's cross only to know that he's actually tipping the goal into the net to give the away side the lead.

Ever since then the game looked much difficult for Arsenal and once again Nani ran and supplied a beautiful pass to sprinting Rooney to double the lead.

And the next thing you saw was of course another counter attack by United with Park Ji Sung making it 3-0. Vermaelen made a cool shot outside of the penalty box to give his side a consolation, but that doesn't change the fact that they lost the game and are barely on the hunt for title now.

Ferguson must be so happy now given that he had sent one of his title rivals out of the title race while seeing another losing two points on the next Tuesday. The road for title looks much more flatter for the Manchester side now.

Unlucky gunners to meet the on fire Nani.

Fantasy Report Card
Results of my fantasy line-ups.

Form totally destructed due to injury.

Fernando Torres (GW21-25) [0 pts - provisional]

Carlos Tevez (GW22-26) [8 pts - provisional]
No goals this week.

Charles N'Zogbia (GW23-27) [6 pts - provisional]
2 points of bonus. Not bad.

A strong return.

Bye Robbie Keane

The biggest flop in Benitez's era Robbie Keane had left the high intensity premier league to find back his momentum to score.

The 30-year-old Irish had just joined Celtic on loan recently as he couldn't find his starting place anymore having to bench behind Jermaine Defoe and Peter Crouch.

Unfortunately, his debut for Celtic against Kilmarnock saw him wasted thousands of chances to lost the game. What a pity.

A loaned captain...
