EPL Game Week 33: Outs, Doubts, Ins & Wins

Game Week 33 will surely see managers with many different line-ups. Let’s make sure that unlike the prior few weeks, there are no surprises and everyone in your Starting 11 starts.

Below is a breakdown of what each of the categories means:

Out: Fantasy-relevant players who have been confirmed out for the week, either through injury or suspension

Doubt: Players facing the dreaded late fitness test, rotation concerns and those who are out of form/favor

In: The likeliest replacements for the Outs & Doubts

Win: Fantasy player to watch / my hunch pick of the week



Out: N/A

Doubt: N/A

In: N/A

Win: Danny Ings

Sean Dyche has no injury concerns. His worries, however, lay in the fact that Burnley scored 0 goals in the last three games. Away to an Everton team that has had trouble keeping a clean sheet all season long, Danny Ings, priced at £9.79 is the man to break Burnley’s goal drought, as he is due a goal himself having last scored in Game Week 25 against United.



Out: Diego Costa

Doubt: Loic Remy

In: Didier Drogba

Win: Eden Hazard

At home against a United team that has been playing really well is a tough game on paper. If you hold Hazard cheap, he should be in your line-up this week and the only player I would recommend from Chelsea.


Crystal Palace

Out: Marouane Chamakh, Frazier Campbell, Jordon Mutch


In: N/A

Win: Wilfried Zaha

Jason Puncheon and Yannick Bolasie had monster games in Game Weeks 31 and 32, respectively. Now, it is time for Wilfried Zaha to have a scorcher - priced at just £8.54 and playing at home to West Bromwich Albion.



Out: N/A

Doubt: Leon Osman, Romelu Lukaku, Aidan McGeady

In: Aaron Lennon, Arouna Kone

Win: Ross Barkley

Purely a hunch, but Barkley had 2 shots on target and was overall very active. No reason why he does not start again this Game Week at home against Burnley.


Leicester City

Out: N/A

Doubt: N/A

In: N/A

Win: Marc Albrighton

Last Game Week, Albrighton completed 4 successful crosses, won 4 corners and scored 10 points. Still priced very reasonably at £6.53, he will start and should score well against Swansea.


Manchester City

Out: Wilfried Bony, Stefan Jovetic, Vincent Kompany, Gael Clichy


In: Eliaquim Mangala

Win: Sergio Aguero

Kun scored a brace against United but will be tested by a better West Ham United defense.  At home, however, he should be able to generate a decent return even without scoring.


Manchester United

Out: Jonny Evans, Daley Blind, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Michael Carrick

Doubt: N/A

In: Juan Mata, Robin Van Persie (maybe)

Win: Juan Mata

The Spaniard is in tip-top shape and could be a decent option even at retail.


Newcastle United

Out: Pappis Cisse, Ally Cissoko, Paul Dummett

Doubt: N/A

In: Remy Cabella, Mehdi Abeid, Gabriel Obertan

Win: Ryan Taylor

The Magpies set piece specialist is in form and has averaged quite nicely in the past few games, even without a clean sheet. Priced at £8.73, he is certainly a gamble but has scored 37 points in the last 4 games without a single clean sheet held. Tottenham, on the other hand, has been held scoreless in the last two games, so anything can happen.



Out: Victor Wanyama

Doubt: N/A

In: James Ward-Prowse (maybe)

Win: Kelvin Davis

Southampton defense is decent enough to combat the mediocre Stoke offense. If you held on to Davis at £2.39, there is no reason why you should drop him now.


Stoke City

Out: Victor Moses

Doubt: Marc Wilson

In: Marco Arnautovic

Win: Philipp Wollscheid

The German ruffian is cheap at £2.82, will start and should get you some positive points as you invest the funds elsewhere.


Swansea City

Out: Bafetimbi Gomis, Neil Taylor

Doubt: N/A

In: Nélson Oliveira

Win: Gylfi Sigurdsson

This Swansea team has nothing to play for and I am concerned that the Icelandic international will have another one of those 5 points performances. The match-up alone, however, makes him worthy of consideration and could bring some reaping fantasy rewards.



Out: Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker

Doubt: Jan Vertonghen

In: Michel Vorm, Roberto Soldado (rotation)

Win: Harry Kane

I hate to sounds like a broken record, but Kane, even after two terrible performances, should be in your thoughts this week.


West Bromwich Albion

Out: Youssuf Mulumbu

Doubt: Brown Ideye

In: Darren Fletcher

Win: N/A

West Bromwich Albion has not played well. There is no reason to consider having anyone from the Baggies' squad this Game Week against Crystal Palace.


West Ham United

Out: Diafra Sakho

Doubt: N/A

In: Enner Valencia

Win: Stewart Downing

The dark horse away to a City team that has had trouble keeping clean sheets, Downing is a hunch pick that only the bravest of the fantasy managers will field.


GW 33 Team: Schmeichel, Cresswell, Schlupp, Kelly, Boyd, Cabella, Downing, Zaha, Aguero, Kane, Ings.
