See this, right – our Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30 goalkeepers and defenders round-up is here!
We can’t be certain of what will happen in this weekend’s Premier League fixtures, so there is a possibility – just a wee one – that our Fantasy Football tips might not work out for you.
Rest assured, though, that our educated guesses are at least as educated as they are guessed.
We should point out that our Fantasy Football tips are based on the Fantasy Premier League version of the game, although the principles should apply more or less across the board.
Okay, let’s be having this…
Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30: Goalkeepers and Defenders
Three of Arsenal’s next four games are Tottenham Hotspur (a), Chelsea (a) and Manchester City (h) – don’t know about you, but we quite fancy taking our defensive Gunners out of the firing line for the meantime.
Southampton have four clean sheets in nine going into this weekend’s home game against struggling Norwich City, and our eye was immediately drawn to Saints right-back Nathaniel Clyne at just £4.2m.
After an absence of three games, Clyne returned to play the full 90 minutes of the weekend’s 1-0 win at Crystal Palace – we’re counting on him to retain sufficient form and fitness on the way to another shut-out against the shot-shy Canaries.
Goalkeeper Artur Boruc and left-back Luke Shaw are still only £4.8m and £5m respectively, just to ramp up your Saints selection headache.
Everton may have been spanked 4-1 at Arsenal in the FA Cup but they’ve won 17 of their last 21 home games in all competitions, keeping 12 clean sheets in total.
They must therefore represent a reasonable bet to repeat the trick at home to Cardiff City in Gameweek 30, in which case it’s worth keeping an eye on the fitness of Phil Jagielka.
If the England man fails to recover in time then £4.1m John Stones is likely to deputise, as he did in the 1-0 win over West Ham United in the Toffees’ previous league game.
Our 0-0 tips for the week are Sunderland v Crystal Palace and/or Stoke City v West Ham, so you might want to peruse the various bargains on offer from amongst that lot.
