EPL Fantasy Football: Ditching the dead weight

With the end of the season looming large, Adrian Houghton has urged managers to offload those players not doing the job for their respective sides
GOAL.com Indonesia   ANALYSIS

Week 28 of Goal.com's EPL Fantasy league saw all the big sides claim victory bar Arsenal, who lost to arch-rivals Tottenham.

The tip for the upcoming round of action is to try and clear out any unwanted dead wood in your team.

Most coaches will have placed their faith in certain players that have historically fared well.

For example, it was another horrid weekend for Everton's Croatian forward, Nikica Jelavic [£4,800,000], and if he still occupies a place in your team then you might want to think about offloading him for the run-in.

Analyse your squad closely and identify those players who are out of form or have a significantly decreased value and search for adequate replacements within your budget.

The season is drawing to a close and new faces could prove decisive come late May.

Note there are eight teams excluded from Fantasy competition for this week due to the FA Cup fixtures - make sure to check the schedule.


Shinji Kagawa – Manchester United (44 points)

The Japanese answered his critics with a hat-trick and it could be the turning point in his United career – £10,290,000.

Luis Suarez – Liverpool (36 points)

Liverpool's talismanic Uruguayan could be crowned the league's player of the season after his second hat-trick of the campaign against a hapless Wigan outfit – £15,340,000.

Marouane Fellaini – Everton (26 points)

The Belgian was superb yet again in his side's convincing win over Reading and continues to provid Fantasy coaches with consistently high scores – £10,710,000.


Jonathan Walters – Stoke City (4 points)

The Potters centre-forward has regressed ever since his embarrassing two own-goals against Chelsea and is completely off limits for coaches – £3,700,000.

Papiss Cisse – Newcastle United (4 points)

Has struggled to hit the lofty heights of his prolific start to life on Tyneside last January and is one of Fantasy's biggest disappointments – £7,480,000.

Aaron Ramsey – Arsenal (2 points)

The Welshman is living in the shadow of countryman Gareth Bale and turned in another below-par display against Spurs – £6,060,000.
