Premier League Fantasy Football 2013-14: Top Player Picks for Game Week 20

In a reverse of game week 13, Manchester United host Tottenham in a full programme of fixtures on New Year's Day

With Christmas now gone for another year, thoughts turn to work, to taking down the decorations, to the January detox. And, of course, to the culmination of the football season.

After gorging ourselves on the surfeit of football available over the festive season, it is not just our waistlines which are bulging but also our fantasy football accounts.

We are past the halfway point: 19 games down, 19 games to go. So much has happened, so much can happen.

As we sail past the end of 2013, we welcome the advent of 2014 with a full programme of English Premier League fixtures. Game week 20 is that odd round of matches which mirrors game week 13, played on the last weekend of November.

A Liverpool side who are giddy with title aspirations will hope to avenge the 3-1 defeat which Hull inflicted on them. Manchester City, in second, will hope that they do not incur the wrath of a Swansea team who have been insipid of late.

Can Tottenham, with former player Tim Sherwood now steadying the ship, end Manchester United's four-game win sequence?

At the bottom of the table, fans of Crystal Palace will hope that Tony Pulis can help the Eagles fly higher after they escaped the relegation zone. A home game against Norwich may help them to spread their wings.

Let's now take a look at the players we should take forward into 2014 and those who we can leave behind in 2013.
