p1d5epaaqmh1pjr19bj186h1rfq9.jpg

The title race is hotting up, and with Gameweek 30 upon us, we enter the final stretch of the Premier League season and our fantasy seasons.

Manchester City have finally regained control of the Premier League table, taking advantage of Liverpool's stalemate with Everton last weekend, whilst the Citizens themselves managed a 1-0 victory over a stubborn Bournemouth side.

Liverpool, who at one point in the season had the opportunity to go 10 points clear at the top of the table, now find themselves in somewhat stagnant form, winning just two of their last five games.

The Reds, who only have one loss to their name in the league, sit one point behind Manchester City with 70 points after 29 games.

Tottenham, who have been decimated by injuries, have eased the pressure on the title race and now look to secure a Champions League spot for next season.

Manchester United's resurgent form finds them leading the pack in the race for fourth, but sit just one point above Arsenal and two above Chelsea; two London teams who are finding it hard to play consistently.

As Gameweek 30 approaches, here are the five players you should consider adding to your squad.

5 PLAYERS TO ADD TO YOUR GAMEWEEK 30 FANTASY FOOTBALL SQUAD

FELIPE ANDERSON - WEST HAM UNITED

The Premier League newcomer has wasted no time making a name for himself in England with Manuel Pellegrini's West Ham United.

The Brazilian international can play a multitude of different attacking positions on the pitch, but he's most comfortable out wide.

Anderson can also play up top and has even been experimented in a false-9 position during his time at Lazio in Italy.

One thing Anderson guarantees to your Fantasy team is consistent play. The 25-year-old has played every match of the Premier League this season and has contributed eight goals and assisted three more.

Anderson is West Ham's top scorer and against a defensively leaky team in Cardiff City, should see him dominate the game offensively.

BERNARDO SILVA - MANCHESTER CITY

The second year Manchester City man has truly settled in at the Etihad after some great performances all season from the Portuguese.

Tipped by many pundits and lauded by Pep Guardiola as one of City's best players, he has filled in expertly for the creative plug Kevin de Bruyne in his absence through injury.

His ability to create chances while controlling possession makes him a nightmare to go up against and a true asset to any Fantasy team.

With five goals and six assists this season, averaging a 7.24 match rating, you can expect him to control the game from midfield against a strong Watford side.

JAMIE VARDY - LEICESTER CITY

The Foxes may be out of form, but never doubt the abilities of record goalscorer Jamie Vardy.

Vardy again leads Leicester City's goalscoring chart and with a change in management, it may be time to bet on Vardy to hit the back of net even more regularly.

With 10 goals in 25 appearances, it is a modest return for the 32-year-old, who has hit double figures in goals since his title-winning season.

With Brendan Rodgers now at the helm of the club, he has made it public to the media he intends to use Vardy's natural goalscoring instinct as one of the leading aspects of the team going forward.

With a game against the worst defensive side in the league in Fulham, you better bet for goals from this man Jamie Vardy.

XHERDAN SHAQIRI - LIVERPOOL

Shaqiri has made quite the impact since his move from relegated Stoke City, and has made himself somewhat of a fan favourite despite playing more of a bit-part role recently.

For one reason or another, that makes the media scratch their heads as to why he has not been playing much at all anymore, with Divock Origi seemingly coming back from the Liverpool graveyard to start the 0-0 Everton draw.

As a man with a "super sub" status at Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp should realise the need to play the Swiss man to get some goals when they come up against defensively-minded Burnley at the weekend.

MICHY BATSHUAYI - CRYSTAL PALACE

'Batsman' is the last player on this list who deserves a mention for your Fantasy team.

The well-traveled frontman is now finally seeing some game time in England, scoring in Crystal Palace's last match against Burnley.

That goal puts him at two in just three starts for the Eagles. To put that into perspective, Michy now has nine goals and two assists in just seven Premier League starts when you take into account his Chelsea statistics.

Against Brighton & Hove Albion, Crystal Palace are not exactly going up against defensive stalwarts.

Michy has shown he can get goals in England, and combining with the trickery of Wilfried Zaha and the service of youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka, could add major points to your Fantasy squad for Gameweek 30.
