Fantasy Premier League: Roll with John Terry one last time

John Terry will wave goodbye to Stamford Bridge on Sunday

It's the last week of the Premier League season but Neil Monnery still thinks you can get value in the world of fantasy football...

'If the Blues get a penalty do you think they might get the club captain to take it? I know I do. He might also be on free kicks and be the target of every corner coming in. It would be the perfect end to his playing time at Stamford Bridge if he can walk out of the door with a goal in his back pocket.'

Terry is a one-week flyer pick


When it comes to fantasy football there is no room for sentiment. You have to look at cold hard numbers. Maybe play the odd hunch but you don't pick your favourite player just because you want to root for him to do well.

Yet in the real world on Sunday we may well see some of it. The title is secured and there is very little to play for. John Terry has potentially one more game in his Chelsea career. My gut is that Antonio Conte will start him and give him a proper send off.

If the Blues get a penalty do you think they might get the club captain to take it? I know I do. He might also be on free kicks and be the target of every corner coming in. It would be the perfect end to his playing time at Stamford Bridge if he can walk out of the door with a goal in his back pocket. I wouldn't back against it.

Terry is only £5.2m and is worth a flyer this week. Nathan Ake is £3.8m and he is also a good pick-up from the Chelsea defence. They play Sunderland on Sunday, so the chance of a clean sheet looks pretty decent.

John Terry is 4/1 to get on the score sheet this Sunday on the Betfair Sportsbook.


Expensive Sturridge set to deliver


The future of Daniel Sturridge is very much in question. Just three goals in the Premier League is a mediocre return for the England international. His fitness has been a constant issue and what Jurgen Klopp really thinks about the 27 year old is still unknown.

Fantasy wise he's been one of the highest priced players in the game. £9.6m is the current price and logically you'd not even look twice at him. However he started and found the back of the net against West Ham last time out.

Liverpool's final opponent of the season is relegated Middlesbrough at home. Sturridge should get the chance to fill his boots against the demoralised team from the north east and maybe this is a shop window opportunity for him?

You can get 15/4 on Daniel Sturridge to score two or more in this game at 15/4 on the Betfair Sportsbook


The second-half of the season King


Josh King must be the most value for money fantasy player in the second half of the season. The Bournemouth midfielder has scored 13 times since the mid-way point in the campaign and at only £6.2m, if you were in on him before your rivals then you'll have been fist pumping.

This weekend the Cherries travel to Leicester. The teams will be playing for a top half finish. A draw will be enough for Eddie Howe's men but that has never been his style.

Benik Afobe and Callum Wilson are both out injured and Lys Mousset hasn't done much. Therefore King is the big goal scoring threat. It might even be his last appearance for the south coast club. His name has come up in many a transfer rumour.

I certainly like him to find the back of the net once more.

You can get Josh King at 7/1 to open the scoring at Leicester on the Betfair Sportsbook
