fantasy football, fantasy sports, fpl, football, premier league

The Liverpool top four push continued in gameweek 28 as the Reds defeated Burnley, 2-1, at Anfield. Liverpool have been stellar at home this season winning 10 times and losing just once.

However, the team’s away form has cost them as Liverpool have lost four times on the road. One of those four losses came against Burnley in gameweek 2, but this time around, the Reds made no mistakes to claim victory and continue the Liverpool top four push.

Georginio Wijnaldum once again proved why you should select him in your daily fantasy sports or Fantasy Premier League team when Liverpool play at home. The Dutchman levelled the fixture in the 46th minute after Burnley’s Ashley Barnes opened the scoring early in the first half.

Just after the hour mark, Wijnaldum’s midfield partner Emre Can put the Reds ahead for good and the Champions League Liverpool top four push continues.

Unfortunately, fifth place Arsenal have two games in hand over the Reds, which could kill off Liverpool’s top four ambitions.

Everton 3-0 West Brom Albion

Everton rebounded from their gameweek 27 loss to Tottenham with a resounding 3-0 win over West Brom. Romelu Lukaku DFS and FPL lovers will be proud of picking the Belgian in their sides as he tallied a goal and assist.

Kevin Mirallas and Morgan Schneiderlin both added goals as Everton sit two points behind sixth place Manchester United.

The Red Devils do have two games in hand and could extend their lead over Everton when they return to Premier League action.

Hull 2-1 Swansea

Swansea came crashing back to the ground after being defeated by Hull, 2-1. Oumar Niasse’s second half brace was enough to see the Tigers through with all three points. Swansea’s Alfie Mawson scored a late consolation goal, but the damage was already done. Hull sit one point adrift of safety.

Meanwhile, Swansea are seven points above the relegation zone and will face teams around the bottom of the table in the coming weeks.

Fernando Llorente’s halftime exit from the game has left plenty of DFS and FPL managers cursing the Spaniard’s selection in gameweek 28.

Bournemouth 3-2 West Ham

Bournemouth downed West Ham, 3-2, as calls for Eddie Howe to Arsenal grow louder and louder. However, it was West Ham who took the early lead through hot and cold FPL player Michail Antonio’s 10th minute goal.

Bournemouth’s Joshua King fired the Cherries level just after the half hour mark. King added a second just after halftime as Bournemouth assumed control of the fixture.

West Ham’s Andre Ayew levelled the match with seven minutes to play. However, King wasn’t done yet as the former Manchester United player sealed his hat-trick with a 90th minute winner for Bournemouth.

The win gives Bournemouth some breathing room from the bottom three as six points now separates them.
