Marouane Fellaini may split opinion but, like his manager, he gets results.

Saturday Lunchtime Kick off

All signs were pointing to a massive win for Liverpool and a massive fantasy football score for Mohamed Salah, considering how many managers sold him before the Gameweek 36 deadline.

It didn’t take long for Salah to strike fear into the hearts of those that had dropped him for this game as he ran clean through on goal in the opening five minutes.

But the Egyptian winger chipped the ball wide over the floored Jack Butland.

Non-owners were counting down the minutes until the final whistle nervously.

Before this week, Salah had failed to score only once since Gameweek 24 and that came against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Even when he has played poorly, Salah has managed to find the back of the net, so it was a surprise when the game ended a stalemate.

Saturday 3pm kick offs

Leicester City have failed to win their last four games against Newcastle, Burnley, Southampton and Crystal Palace. The 5-0 thrashing by previously relegation threatened Crystal Palace is an indicator that the players are not focused on their football and they’re already on the beach.

Wilfried Zaha has now scored or assisted seven goals in his last seven games since returning from injury in Gameweek 30, including a goal and assist against Leicester in Gameweek 36.

Leicester City’s woeful form has been capped off with the lack of goals from their attacking duo of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.

The former PFA Player of the Year has failed to produce any returns in his last five games. Vardy meanwhile has failed to score in the last two, after going on a run of scoring in four games in a row.

Vardy has now scored 17 goals this season, seven short of the 24 goals he managed during the Foxes’ title-winning campaign. Mahrez will surely leave this summer but the Foxes be losing both their star players this season?

West Brom’s latest four-game unbeaten run under Darren Moore has come too little too late for the Baggies, who sit five points behind safety, having played a game more than Swansea. Interestingly, under Moore, West Brom have drawn both home games and won both games on the road.

Pep Guardiola recently had to come out to say that his goalkeeper, Ederson, would not be taking a penalty during their remaining league game out of respect to the opposition.

Meanwhile, Christian Benteke has scored just two goals all season and before scoring from the spot against Leicester had missed from 12 yards more (3) than he has scored (2) for the Eagles.

Saturday Evening kick off

Eden Hazard has lacked attacking threat recently, with just one goal in his last eight games now, but the Belgian was on hand to provide a moment of magic for Cesc Fabregas’ goal in the opening five minutes.

Sunday lunchtime kick off

Some managers got an early fright after waking up to this tweet.

But Spurs play on Monday night!

Manchester City have won six penalties this season, largely through the efforts of Raheem Sterling’s quick feet in the box. He won a penalty last week against Swansea but was denied another penalty after Aaron Creswell’s clumsy challenge this week.

Sterling is mocked for missing big chances and for not being able to finish, but the winger has a good conversion rate among forwards.

Sunday afternoon kick off

It took until the 91st minute for Manchester United to get a second goal against this defence.

And it came from a big punt upfront to the big-man.

Marouane Fellaini earned a new fan channel for life with his late headed winner.
