West Brom could only manage to hold the ball for 40% of the match and managed one shot on target in 90 minutes of action. It comes as no surprise that they lost.

You couldn't blame goalkeeper Ben Foster for the headed goal he allowed to Olivier Giroud but there were also no heroes for West Brom as they capitulated rather weakly at the Emirates. The Baggies aren't mathematically safe from relegation yet but it would take quite a performance by Norwich over their final two matches against Chelsea and Arsenal to threaten West Brom's chances of another season in the Premier League.

Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic could feature in GW19 after being an unused substitute on Boxing Day.

Jovetic is Manchester City's only active striker at the moment and they need him to get healthy sooner rather than later. After being an unused substitute, Jovetic will likely be given at least half an hour on Sunday against Burnley. Manchester City are bound to score a number of goals against Burnley and it's just a matter of whether or not Jovetic is on the pitch when the goals start flowing. He is a risky differential play this week but makes for a fantastic barn-door candidate due to Manchester's easy matchup in week 20.

Everton goalkeeper Joel Robles is likely to start on Sunday against Newcastle due to the injury to American goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Everton are playing at St James' Park so the matchup is not ideal for a goalkeeper, but Everton aren't likely to get destroyed and at £ 2.33M, Robles is a decent enough option to allow you to spend extra elsewhere. Everton's New Year's Day game is also away from home so Robles isn't likely to have a premium matchup anytime soon. Use with caution.

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy is suspended for gameweek 19 due to accumulating five yellow cards.

Vardy has not been great to fantasy owners but the suspension rules him out of even the deepest leagues. Leo Ulloa played well in the Foxes' last might and should be considered in their trip to Hull City this weekend. He is not a great option but can be a differential play to the adventurous fantasy manager.

Cheik Tiote is expected to return to Newcastle's lineup in week 19 after serving a one-match ban.

The midfielder picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Sunderland and the missed the week 18 match against Manchester United. He is now rested and could start week 19 against an injured Everton defense. Despite the likely inclusion in the squad, Tiote has been far from impressive after his return from injury this season and is only averaging three points per match. Avoid him in all formats.

Brad Jones will likely miss Liverpool's match on Monday against Swansea.

The goalkeeper left Friday's match with an injury and he's expected to miss at least week 19. He is getting a scan on his thigh to learn the extent of the injury. Simon Mignolet will start on Monday while Danny Ward will be promoted from the practice squad to act as backup.

Manchester City forward Pozo remains a doubt with an illness.

Manchester City are very short on forwards but Pozo remains a doubt. If Stevan Jovetic doesn't impress on Sunday, Pozo could possibly be utilized in gameweek 20. If he finds a place in the City rotation, it will only be short-term, with Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko set to return in late January.
Dec 27 - 5:24 PM

Ashley Young has been impressive in the past two weeks, returning double digit fantasy scores in both.

Manchester United's attack is picking up steam and Young is getting involved enough to return good fantasy value. He only costs £ 8.56M and should continue getting playing time until some of Manchester's injured players return. Our analyst Galin Dragiev has recommended him in his Week 19 Player Picks.
Dec 27 - 4:15 PM

Jose Fonte returns from a one-match ban to face Chelsea in gameweek 19.

Fonte was suspended for week 18 due to an accumulation of yellow cards but will return in week 19 to face Chelsea. He is nailed on to start in Southampton's back line and is a decent fantasy choice despite having a low chance at a clean sheet. He can contribute through tackles and interceptions and can score the occasional goal, making him a low risk play this week. Florin Gardos or Maya Yoshida will drop from the starting lineup.
Dec 27 - 4:21 PM

Gabby Agbonlahor is suspended for GW19 due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

The Aston Villa forward had his red card rescinded from week 17 but then picked up a yellow in week 18 and will now serve a one-match ban. Andreas Weimann will likely return to the starting lineup and Christian Benteke is expected to lead the line. Benteke is the one worth owning in fantasy if you want a Villa forward in their great week 19 matchup.
Dec 27 - 4:25 PM

There is a low chance of Chelsea midfielder Oscar being rested on Sunday.

The attacking midfielder played 80 minutes on Friday and was rested last weekend. At the same time, Willian and Eden Hazard haven't seen a day of in a while, especially Hazard, who hasn't missed a minute of Premier League football since mid-October. We would consider Oscar safe to play in fantasy on Sunday.
Dec 27 - 4:06 PM

Pablo Zabaleta is likely to earn a start against Burnley tomorrow, making him a very good choice for fantasy managers.

Zabaleta was rested in Manchester City's Boxing Day match and he will likely be utilized in their home encounter against Burnley. With how bad Burnley have been on the road, Manchester City's clean sheet chances are the best of any match tomorrow, making Zabaleta an excellent fantasy choice. Aleksandar Kolarov is another good option to get into the City defense.
