Tonight at 19 o’clock (CET) the next big tournament starts on Fanteam for the Premier League.
60.000€ are guaranteed and the first place will win 10.000€.
The buy-in per team is only 20€.
But now after a small explanation about the Pursuit Format we go directly to the preview of this big tournament!
This 60.000€ tournament will be played in Pursuit format again. This means that there will be no budget problems, but at the end of the tournament you will receive bonus points the more budget you have left.
More precisely, there are 0.4 points for every 1 million in budget that is left at the end.
So it can be worthwhile if you attach special importance to value for your money, while building your teams.
These are the 5 matches of the 31st matchday that are important in this 60k tournament.
4 of the 5 pairings will start at 7pm, so we will see the starting line-ups of these matches before the tournament starts.
Only of the match Liverpool – Crystal Palace we will not see the line-ups, this can be a small disadvantage as always.
Now let’s take a deeper look into all the 10 teams of this tournament:
4 teams have at least a 50% chance of winning today.
Liverpool is the big favourite at home against Crystal Palace with 78% and has also the best values on to score % and clean sheet %.
4 teams have a to score probability of at least 82%, a pretty high average.
Let’s take a closer look now at the defensive and offensive of both teams, also in connection with Fanteam’s average prices for the expected line-ups.
In the defense, I marked 3 teams as interesting for me. On top Manchester United and Wolverhampton, who both have a high CS probability and an average price on Fanteam of well under 10M.
Liverpool seems to be quite expensive.
In midfield Newcastle are still convincing with only 7.1M and 31%.
At the bottom of the table you could also find some interest in the defences of Norwich and Bournemouth, which are very cheap and still have a probability of 18% and 16%.
In the offensive I only marked Everton as particularly interesting.
10.1M average price with a probability of 24% to score at least 3 goals is very good.
Manchester United seems too expensive here with only 29% and 12.7M, in comparison the Wolves are much more interesting.
In the lower half Norwich is perhaps an interesting risk pick with 7.1M and still 11%.
Players to watch
M. Dubravka (Newcastle / 7.6M) GK
Dubravka is for me a perfect choice as a goalkeeper in this tournament, because he basically fulfills everything you want from a goalkeeper in Fantasy Football.
He is very inexpensive with 7.6M, his team has a high probability not to concede a goal of 31% and still Aston Villa is likely to have some shots on goal, where Dubravka gets 0.5 points on Fanteam for each defended goal shot.
H. Maguire (Manchester United / 9.5M) DEF
The defensive giant of ManU is my first choice on the defensive. Not only is he always a danger for the opponents in standard situations of his own team, he also has some facts speaking for him for today. ManU has a high CS probability of 50% and Maguire is really interesting with a price of 9.5M.
A particularly interesting duo is Maguire with B. Fernandes (12.5M), who shoots almost all free kicks and corners. Most of these balls then go towards Maguire in the penalty area.
Richarlison (Everton / 11.4M) MID
Richarlison is very interesting for fantasy football, because he is listed in midfield on Fanteam, but plays much more offensive. He has already scored 10 goals for Everton this season.
As Everton is the most interesting option for me today for the offense, Richarlison was of course my first choice here.
He forms an excellent duo with D. Calvert-Lewin (11.1M), who has already scored 13 goals.
But also a combination with L. Digne (8.5M) makes a lot of sense, the French left-back has already scored 5 assists this season and therefore the most at Everton.
We wish you the best of luck in our tournament! You can enter here.
