EAGLES CLIP CANARIES’ WINGS AS LE CRAS STUNG BY HORNETS
Jason Puncheon’s 68th minute strike earned Alan Pardew’s side not just 3 valuable points but also a huge psychological lift, beating their closes rivals for the drop and ending a miserable win-less streak.
But how it could have been different – Matt Jarvis’ claims for a penalty in the first half were waved away by referee Michael Oliver after Damien Delaney’s clumsy ‘tackle’. On such fine margins it seems, TFG titles may just be won.
However, league Leader Rich Le Cras was 1 of another 11 TFGers that saw their Watford pick return only 1 point at home to Everton. With Chris ‘Steveo’ Greenwood’s game in hand to be played out between GW34 and GW35, it looks like the scrap for the inaugural TFG prize will go all the way to the wire.To find out where you currently sit in the league, just click HERE.
Looking forward to Game Week 34, Man United and Arsenal appear to be sure fire ‘bankers’ with home games against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace respectively.
But with dwindling options left in your pick pot you may well be forced to look further afield for 3 points this weekend. And as if things weren’t already difficult enough, the fixture list Gods have thrown together an extremely tricky set of matches.
Indeed, you might want to stick a few draws on this week’s accumulator with Stoke v Spurs, Leicester v West Ham, Everton v Southampton, Newcastle v Swansea and Chelsea v Man City all looking like potential TFG banana skins.
Elsewhere, Liverpool will be favourites away at Bournemouth, who have struggled for form recently, and West Brom will fancy their chances of picking up the spoils with a home tie against Watford. Beware West Brom – The Baggies have had a nasty habit of dropping TFGers point all season long.
Don’t be fooled by the seemingly endless list of fixtures over the next week – the only ten fixtures you need to concern yourself are the original matches from the Game Week 34 as listed on our Ponder page.
Remember, each Game Week begins when the first match of the Game Week kicks off. This week, that’s the crucial relegation match between Norwich and Sunderland at Carrow Road which kicks off at 12:45 on Saturday lunchtime.
