Gameweek 2 Fantasy Premier League Tips: ALERT FRIDAY NIGHT DEADLINE

by Paul Caffrey on August 13, 2015

It’s gameweek 2 of the fantasy premier league already, and a historic one at that. For the first time we will have a Friday night deadline, the only one this season but get ready because this will be come a regular slot for Fantasy Football from next season.

As most already know, Friday night games will be televised for the 2016/17 season. This means that Saturday morning changes (if you’re based in the UK or Ireland/countries close) will become a thing of the past.  Let us know if this will be better if you’re from a different time zone!

Many are already looking to play their wildcard after an under whelming opening weekend of football for most fantasy premier league managers.

Looking at this week, Gomis of Swansea just missed out on a place in your team and our bench consists of two Tottenham players as we couldn’t fit them in. It is also interesting to see Clyne only make the bench but as it seems likely Liverpool will concede to Bournmouth he does not make it in despite his potential attacking return.

“Maybe I’m wrong but I think fewer points will win the title. You have a minimum of five title contenders and the other teams get stronger and stronger. I think nobody can complain because everyone is investing – you go to Watford, you go to Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Stoke, every club.” – Jose Mourinho

Alderweireld had two chances to score against Manchester United in gameweek one, which is decent for a defender against any team. He could be a good player to pick as Tottenham have a favourable run of games coming up. Ivanovic was again very attacking and with Manchester City likely to drop Aguero we are thinking possible clean sheet.

We also think Mourinho would take a draw against Manchester City as he has started that it will take less points to win the league this season. A draw against Manchester City would be a pragmatic result, although the Chelsea faithful will be hoping to nick a 1-0 win. This year the Premier League will be won against teams in the middle of the league.

An article recently by Daniel Story(Football 365) highlighted the difficulty faced by the Top Premier League teams as he highlighted the fact that teams like Stoke City now boast 5 Champions League winners in their ranks (Bojan, Ibrahim Afellay, Marc Muniesa, Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Arnautovic) and Sunderland have signed a player who should be playing Champions League this season! (Lens).

As if Fantasy Football wasn’t difficult enough! It should really make for a great season ahead.
