Sunday + Monday Live Chat: Heavy Hitters Edition

New, comments

With three of the current top six in the Premier League table in action over the next couple days, there will likely be quite a bit of movement in the overall standings. Man City and Arsenal will both be hoping to reclaim top spot in the league from Chelsea after their comfortable win over Hull yesterday. So, how will the weekend wrap up?

Newcastle may have to rely on some heroics from Tim Krul to keep them in the hunt for a European spot.

Most of Saturday's results went as expected, though my decision to drop Hugo Lloris at discount to bring in David Marshall for Week 21 cost me a cool 20 points (thanks, Jason Puncheon), something that I found out in the Saturday Live Chat thread is likely to have cost me at least 500 places in the overall standings.

Points are extremely tight, both at the top of the Premier League and at the top of the Yahoo! Fantasy Football leaderboard, which bodes well for an enthralling second half of the season. Anything can happen!

We'll kick off the remaining fixtures with the visit of Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City squad to a confident but injury-ravaged Newcastle side, before Liverpool travel to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City. Arsenal will close out Week 21 on Monday as they attempt to avenge their season-opening defeat to Aston Villa.

How is your team performing so far? Who do you still have left to play over the next two days? Let's chat!
