With the sale of Luis Suarez now official, Liverpool have the funds in place to begin moving in the transfer market for replacements in their squad’s attacking department. The first expected arrival is Benfica’s Lazar Markovic, a player who has been described a ‘prodigy’ and, inevitably, ‘the Serbian Messi’. Here we preview how far he can go toward replacing the irreplaceable (no one will top 132 fantasy points in a season) Suarez and what he can offer points-wise for your team next season.
With the World Cup over it is time to start planning for your Premier League Auction. With a number of World Cup stars plying their trade in England next season we take a look at the five Premier League players who top scored at the World Cup who could help fire you to Fantasy League glory next season.
So there we have it, the World Cup is over for another four years and the Germans are champions. Mario Gotze’s six points were his first points since the second group game and helped him seal a fourth World Cup title for the impressive German side.
After two vastly contrasting semi-finals we have our finalists. Brazil suffered a total annihilation at the hands of Germany with four players registering double digit points totals while Argentina progressed to the final on penalties after a dour 0-0 draw with the Netherlands.
We’re really into the business end of the tournament now, the final Game Phase, and as the games get all the more important it is the defenders who have really stepped up.
It’s the knockout rounds, extra time, penalties and added drama across the board; but more importantly the Fantasy League points are doubled.
As a crucial round of games comes to an end it was Swiss sensation Xherdan Shaqiri who fired his team into the knockout stages of the tournament with the 50th hat-trick in World Cup history, grabbing nine points in the process.
Every team has now played twice and some teams already know they’re on their way home. Fantasy League managers have no such worries and those with Karim Benzema in their squad will be delighted as the French forward scored seven points against Switzerland.
