Top 3 looking to seize initiative in title race
Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all appear to have favourable home fixtures in Gameweek 15, with West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and West Ham United the visitors respectively but the same cannot be said of 4th placed Manchester City or 5th placed Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs travel to Old Trafford on Sunday to face ‘draw specialists’ Manchester United, while Pep Guardiola will have to make do without the suspended trio of Sergio Agüero, Fernandinho and Nicolás Otamendi when he takes his faltering City side to the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, to take on champions Leicester City.
Once again goals are not expected to be in short supply.
Relegation dogfight hotting up with three 6-pointers
The battle for Premier League survival also intensifies in GW15 with three match-ups that could easily be described as the proverbial ‘6-pointers’.
Bottom of the table Swansea City, who have shipped 9 goals in their last two matches, entertain Sunderland, Hull City face a Crystal Palace side that finally secured its first clean sheet of the season when they defeated Southampton last weekend, while Burnley host a Bournemouth side that pulled off that remarkable turnaround against Liverpool.
Elsewhere, Watford get the Gameweek 15 action under way and there’s little to choose between them and visitors Everton according to the latest English Premier League betting odds.
We can probably expect the majority of fantasy football managers to be packing their line-ups with players from Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool but will we see another avalanche of goals in GW15 ?
