Premier League Fantasy Football 2013-14: Top Player Picks for Game Week 21

Having unceremoniously dumping Manchester United out of The FA cup last weekend, Swansea return to the scene of the crime for their league game

Following the sentimental romance of last weekend's FA Cup jamboree, fixations return to the Premier League and fantasy football.

Now past the halfway point of the season, this round of fixtures is a repeat of game week one, the opening day of the 2013/14 Premier League season.

It seems a lifetime ago now, but if we stretch our minds back to 17 August, the many unpredictable and dynamic mini-battles we now within our league seemed an unlikely prospect. It looked as if the status quo remained with or without Sir Alex Ferguson.

David Moyes, now constantly frustrated by his flagging Manchester United team, still had hope and optimism in his eyes, helped by a 4-1 win against Swansea City which saw the holders attain top spot.

This was, of course, until neighbours Manchester City defeated Newcastle United 4-0 two days later.

Liverpool, devoid of the then-suspended Luis Suarez, required a last minute penalty save by debutante Simon Mignolet to defeat Stoke City 1-0.

Arsenal, meanwhile, were beaten 3-1 at home by Aston Villa. Neither side dwelled on this victory. The Gunners are now top of the league, whilst Villa are in 11th, six points above the dropzone. 

With such pedigree in mind, this game week looks set to be just as action-packed. Let's now take a look at the players who can be cutting-edge and those who can be edged out.
