Games are coming thick and fast during this festive period. Who will end 2016 with a bang? We definitely fancy Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal to win big. Can Klopp’s Liverpool beat Pep’s Man City keep pace with leaders Chelsea?
A New Year, A New Hope. With 2017 just round the corner, it is fair for all Premier League fans to make their respective wishlists for their beloved clubs. Let us run through what we think those wishlists are.
Fixtures are starting to pile up for the festive period and managers might start to do some rotation to keep players fresh. In these midweek fixtures, we expect Chelsea to continue to steam ahead and Man City and Spurs to bounce back in style after defeats over the weekend.

It is widely accepted that the Premier League is more physical and played at a faster pace than other top European leagues. This combination of pace and power can make for a difficult transition for those plying their trade in the EPL for the first time. And the variance in success makes it interesting for us to look at how ‘rookies’ have performed in the Premier League thus far. Rookies are, by our definition, players who are playing in the Premier League for the first time in their respective careers this season.
ANOTHER PREMIER LEAGUE GAMEWEEK GONE BY, ANOTHER AWFUL RESULT FOR MANCHESTER UNITED. AFTER AN UNINSPIRING 0-0 HOME DRAW AGAINST BURNLEY, THE RED DEVILS ARE NOW 8 POINTS BEHIND THE LEADING PACK. WHERE WILL MANCHESTER UNITED GO FROM HERE? AS A FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE MANAGER, I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS FOR MR MOURINHO AND BY QUOTING SOME ALL SAINTS’ LYRICS, I HOPE HE WILL REPLY….
It’s Wk 12 in League SX and it’s back to full European action for all the clubs. Our picks will thus focus back solely on the clubs in European action this week, since they will play two games instead of one.
