Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 27 Tips

by Phil McGrath on February 27, 2015

Well this is by far one of the most interesting gameweeks we have had in some time. With Chelsea, Spurs, QPR and Leicester all sitting out this weekend we are set to be without a number of big name and big points scoring players. 

For fantasy managers there are a number of decisions to be made when it comes to the likes of Hazard, Costa, Kane and Austin. With both Tottenham and QPR facing a double next weekend the decision to either sell or drop the likes of Kane, Eriksen and Austin is not easy, but then again who said this week was going to be easy. 

Of course it is worth noting that Chelsea’s double will not roll around until gameweek 34, so at least we don’t have that headache to worry about for the time being. In terms of who is available this weekend, there does not look to be too much to trouble us in terms of injuries, although according to reports Liverpool could be without Henderson and Johnson after the pair missed the mid-week trip to Turkey through injuries,  Philippe Coutinho was rested for the Europa League clash, but should come back into the side to face City. 

Elsewhere Robin van Persie looks set to miss the game with Sunderland after he picked up an ankle injury last time out and with James Wilson also likely to miss out having picked up a knock while playing for the United reserves, it looks like Wayne Rooney to lead the United line against the Black Cats. 

So with all that in mind here are thoughts on players for the gameweek ahead.

Tim Krul (Newcastle) £4.4 million Fixture: Villa (Home)
