Fantasy Football: EPL Week 26 – Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview


It’s one of the biggest games of the Premier League season as Chelsea host Manchester United in the English Premier League this Sunday at Stamford Bridge. With United trying to chase down Manchester City and Chelsea looking to stay in the top-four spots, this game has a lot of context for the three points on offer.

Chelsea start this game in fifth spot with 43 points, but can move up to fourth with a win. United, on the other hand, could start this game in third should Leicester defeat Arsenal. Regardless, with City a whopping 13 points ahead already, United can ill-afford dropping points here.

Chelsea Preview

The arrival of Thomas Tuchel in the hot seat has energised Chelsea and got their season back on track. The ‘Blues’ have won four of their last five Premier League matches, drawing the latest. At home, they have won their last two and lost just once in the last 11 Premier League home games.

When it comes to fantasy picks, midfielder Mason Mount could be an interesting choice. He has 99 fantasy points in the campaign and can be an impressive pick. Forward Timo Werner with 95 points and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy with 82 points are also interesting choices.

Manchester United Preview

United have stuttered in the recent matches with only three wins in their last eight Premier League matches. This sequence saw them draw four and lose one. Even their impressive away record has come to a halt. After winning their first six away matches this Premier League campaign, United have won just two of their last six drawing the other four.

As for fantasy picks, Rashford has two goals, three assists, and 28 points the last four game weeks. He can be an excellent fantasy pick. Talisman Bruno Fernandes has scored in four successive game weeks and had a 12-point game against Newcastle last weekend. It is his double-digit return of the campaign and will prove to be an ideal captain pick!

Fantasy Players to Watch

Mason Mount has two goals in his last three Premier League matches, which is as many as in his previous 21 matches in the competition.

Marcus Rashford has been involved in seven goals in all competitions against Chelsea with five goals and two assists. Against no side has he been involved in more goals.

Bruno Fernandes has been one of the best Premier League players this season. He has four goals and one assist in his last four competitive games.
