Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 26 Tips

by Phil McGrath on February 20, 2015

After a rather interesting week of European action the fantasy premier league swings back into action this weekend and with a number of players returning from both injury and suspension, managers are going to have quite a number of key decisions to make. 

The return of both Diego Costa and Charlie Austin will have caught the eye, but with Gylfi Sugurdsson also available for the Swans, it will be interesting to see if many fantasy managers look to the Icelandic international for points against United. 

There will also be an eager wait to see if Kurt Zouma will regain his place in the Chelsea line up for the visit of Burnley, while there is also a slight concern that Thibaut Courtois could once again fall victim to Mourinho’s rotation at the back. Both Wilfried Bony and Yaya Toure are in contention to start at the Etihad having returned from the African Cup of Nations, although it remains to be seen if Bony will get the nod up top for his debut against the Magpies. 

So with all that and a whole lot more to contend with ahead of the gameweek deadline, it is time for us to nail down our picks for the weekend ahead.
