After a day of tepid Fantasy returns, Sunday arrives with a double header that looks bristling with drama and points in equal measure. Quite simply, the stakes at Old Trafford and White Hart Lane couldn’t be higher – bitter rivalries, title and European place ambitions – the ingredients are all there. Sunday really should be a treat.
It all begins in Manchester, with David Moyes’ side attempting to maintain the little momentum they’ve gathered from back-to-back away wins and three consecutive clean sheets. That record will be tested to the full by a Liverpool side that’s simply overflowing with goals, delivered in the main by the feared partnership of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. Fantasy managers will be focused on their performances today, whilst assessing the suitability of United’s assets ahead of their double Gameweek.
The day’s events conclude at White Hart Lane the North London derby – a fixture which has rarely disappointed in recent seasons. Chelsea’s defeat to Villa will have revived Arsenal’s ambitions somewhat but Arsene Wenger’s side cannot afford to drop points against their rivals if they are to get themselves back in the race. As for Spurs, they’ll be seeking a result to aid recovery after suffering hidings from Chelsea and Benfica in the past week. A win would put them firmly back in the hunt for a top four place and keep them on Arsenal’s tail.
