Pre-Match Analysis: Gameweek 27

Another gameweek double for our fantasy favourite Wayne Rooney!

Fantasy Predictor
My prediction for matches this week.

EVE VS MNU [1-1]
ARS VS SUN [2-0]
WHU VS HUL [1-0]
WOL VS CHE [1-2]
POR VS STO [2-1]
BLA VS BOL [2-0]
AST VS BUR [3-0]
FUL VS BIR [2-0]
MNC VS LIV [0-1]
WIG VS TOT [0-1]
MNU VS WHU [3-0]

Fantasy Focus
Analysis of big showdowns this week.

Everton vs Manchester United
Prediction: 1-1

Everton will be looking forward to snatch points from United when they clash at Goodison Park this Saturday.

Saha is on a hot streak and should be determined to punish his former club, while Manchester United had just fought their best with AC Milan and is going to battle Aston Villa for the final of League Cup on the coming midweek.

With these factors I think Everton will have a big chance to dent United's league title hope.


Manchester City vs Liverpool
Prediction: 0-1

Liverpool will find their best chance to secure their fourth place at this Sunday as they visit to Manchester City for a crucial battle for Champions League spot.

The reds had a narrow win against Unirea Urziceni on Europa Cup first leg, while Mancini's battallion had got a goal in final minutes to share a point with Stoke City on the replacement fixture this midweek.

For me, I think experience will be a big factor in such games and hence I back the on form Liverpool.

Welcome to snatch points as well?

Champions League and Europa Cup Round-Up

Manchester United won 3-2 against Milan in a dramatic match-up at San Siro. Rooney was the man of the day with two brilliant header passed into the net before Ronaldinho's opener and Scholes fishy shot. Seedorf grabbed the second for Milan in final moments to make the second leg much more interesting.

Meanwhile, Arsenal lost to Porto 1-2, Real Madrid continued the non-winning streak against Lyon with a 0-1 defeat and Bayern grabbed the advantage to proceed into next round with a 2-1 victory against Fiorentina.

As for Europa Cup, Liverpool defeated Unirea Urziceni 1-0 at home and Fulham won 2-1 against Shaktar Donetsk at home as well.

A disappointing night for him...

Fantasy Commentary
My view towards matches played this week.

All Games

Arsenal is now a step back into the title race after a crucial win against Liverpool who was seven games unbeaten before that. Manchester United dropped two points thanks to Nani's ridiculous two legged tackle but fortunately Chelsea performed badly to lose all three points to Everton with mighty Saha scored both for the Merseysiders.

The race for fourth is still as exciting as before following a unacceptable loss by Tottenham to one of the relegation pack Wolves. Meanwhile, Manchester City was unable to take full advantage of the slipping of all their contenders after with four points taken from six possible.

Fulham got a controversial win against Stoke City, while West Ham got a much needed victory against Birmingham who was unbeatable not long before...

I'll leave it to you for the rest of the games...

The punisher of Chelsea.
