Fantasy Focus
Analysis of big showdowns this gameweek.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa
Prediction: 1-0

Manchester City will host Aston Villa for a direct showdown which will determine which team STILL has chance to sneak into the Champions League bandwagon.

Managed only to get one point out of last three matches with top three, the Eastlanders has now trapped within the big mess with other fourth place contenders. Should they lose points again, bye~

But City is just far too strong at home so I don't think Aston Villa can take any point from Manchester. Adam Johnson, Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor... if they can't score any goal, they should feel guilty for their expensive price tags.

You can actually get four City players this week if you somehow managed to buy Martin Fulop before his team was updated!

Liverpool vs Chelsea
Prediction: 1-2

The title will automatically be on Chelsea side if they can get all three points from Anfield this Sunday.

Chelsea produced a fearsome bounce back after recording their second 7-0 victory of the season. Take note that they are now the team which scored most goals in Europe this season, even more than Barcelona currently.

Meanwhile, Liverpool has been eliminated from UEFA Europa League due to away goal, which should pretty much hit their confidence. They have also fitness disadvantage compared to Chelsea.

The game should be close, and Liverpool should be giving out their best even if that may mean that Manchester United will surpass their league title record, but Chelsea's physical advantage will outmatch Liverpool's lesser physique. The Blues are just built to be tough.

Has been pretty good recently, but can he stop Chelsea?

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
Prediction: 2-1

A very interesting replacement fixture as Manchester City will battle with Tottenham for the Champions League ticket next midweek.

Both sides will play this weekend so they would not have any fitness advantage against each other.

The match will be close, but I will still back City to win this one due to their good home records. Maybe Gareth Bale can lead their team to strike one or two, but I don't think they can score more than City.

On side note, remember to buy full six players from these two teams for games this week.

All hopes on him.

UEFA Europa League: Fulham Smiles Through, Liverpool Falls

Fulham has entered the first ever Europa League final after succeeded to reverse Hamburg 2-1 at home.

Goals from Davies and Gera has helped the club to record a new page in its history.

Meanwhile, Liverpool has failed to secure a English vs English final after losing to Athletico Madrid due to away goal.

Aquilani has helped the Reds to lead before the break and dragged the game to extra time before Benayoun added another in the first four minutes of ET. However, Diego Forlan once again scored the crucial goal which knocked Liverpool out of the tournament and left them trophyless in this embarrassing season.

A marvelous achievement.

Fantasy Commentary
Summary of interesting matches this gameweek.


Manchester United ended Tottenham's extraordinary form with a 3-1 victory which consists of two penalties.

Chelsea secured yet another seventh heaven victory with Kalou scoring a hat-trick.

Arsenal and Manchester City were both held goalless. This has statistically ended Arsenal's title hope.

Steven Gerrard scored his first brace of the season to send Burnley back to where they were last season. Aquilani deserves some credit for giving up three assists.

A last minute penalty by Milner has ensured Aston Villa to continue to stay on top of Liverpool.

Parker refused to end up draw with Wigan after scoring the winning goal which provided them the edge to stay in the premiership.

Darren Bent's only was enough to give Hull City a lethal blow. Any points lose by the Tigers or any points gain by the Hammers will officially relegate Iain Dowie's team.

Goodbye forever?
