It is less than seven days until Christmas but don't expect any generosity from your fantasy football adversaries.

The festive season is a chance for you to overindulge in the beautiful game and gorge on the English Premier League. With four games in 11 merry days, the next two weeks could make or break your fantasy football hopes and dreams.

With a palpable sense of festive goodwill in the air this week, White Hart Lane was seemingly immune to this cheer as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy disposed of manager Andre Villas-Boas. Having unceremoniously exited the League Cup, avoid Spurs players who may be running low on confidence during this tumultuous time.

On the other side of north London, however, league leaders Arsenal looked in high spirits with bonhomie snowing down at their Christmas party.

Before hitting the town in fancy dress (Lukas Podolski shook off injury concerns to dress up as The Hulk, as reported by The Metro), their German maestro Mesut Ozil respected the tradition of new signings flexing their musical muscles as he and others performed a festive recital

In addition, this week is a special week: It marks a momentous occasion, an occasion which very rarely comes around. Yes, this fantasy football game week, Christmas has come early as we are gifted two free transfers, rather than the customary one.

Let's now take a look at who can be your angel on top of the tree and who is a Christmas pudding.
