Premier League Fantasy Football 2013-14: 5 Disappointing Players This Season

As this rollercoaster of a season lurches from one emotion to another, in the last 10 days we have witnessed three different competitions wreak havoc with our nerves.

Firstly there were the midweek games in the days before Valentine's Day, when no love was lost as Arsenal and Manchester United fought to a goalless stalemate.

Then there was last weekend's set of FA Cup fixtures, where Chelseawinners of three of the last five FA Cupswere beaten by a tactically superior Manchester City side.

This was then followed up, on Tuesday and Wednesday just gone, by the return of the Champions League and the Europa League. With Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Swansea in action across the two competitions, all were on the receiving end of a defeat, apart from the latter, who nobly managed a 0-0 draw with Napoli. 

Phew. Let's pause for a breath ahead of Gameweek 27.

Because amongst all this achievement and all this bonhomie and brinkmanship, several individuals just aren't pulling their weight in the fantasy football domain.

So much of fantasy football success depends on having several players in your team who you know, through thick and thin, will deliver points. The following list comprises five individuals who promised so much but have delivered so little.

A minimum requirement for having the unfortunate honour of making this list is to have played at least one prior season in the EPL. It has then been compiled by studying game time, value and points. 

Honourable mentions also go to Swansea's Michu, Manchester United's Robin van Persie and Manchester City's Vincent Kompany, who have all failed to emulate last season's form, namely through injury.
