This weekend is going to be dull for all of us, we-"the futbol crazy", as there are no matches scheduled for Saturday or Sunday. But, here is something that might just cheer you up. We are approaching the end of this financial year and transitively most of us are financially approaching“poverty”.
So, we’d have to wait till Tuesday to get our year end salary and get "rich" again.
In short, an EPL game with a satisfied Saturday morning shopping and a good afternoon meal is certainly worth this wait, isn’t it?

Yeah ! Yeah Yeah….!!

Now, let me predict week 31 results along with the players who I believe will make a difference next weekend.

The analysis given below is for FPL(Fantasy Premier League) and aimed to help you choose the best players for FPL on GameWeek 31. If you don't agree, you have every right to choose "your" player.

Blackburn V Tottenham 4 Apr 12:45

Tottenham’s recent run of form has been the best among the EPL teams. So, I expect a healthy margin of victory for them.

Prediction: 3-1 in favor of the Spurs.
Players to select: Aaron Lennon (A good buy for those who are missing Arteta), Robbie Keane (A little expensive considering his erratic form)

Arsenal V Man City 4 Apr 15:00

Arsenal will carry on from where it left in Game Week 30 and beat Manchester City easily. Manchester City has no real firepower to feed Bellamy or Robinho.

Prediction: 2-0 in favor of the Gunners.
Players to select: Arshavin or Bendtner. Arsene has a lot of “arsenal” in his forward lineup. So, you cannot expect the forwards to play the full 90 minutes. Make a wise choice here!

Bolton V Middlesbrough 4 Apr 15:00

This is going to be a boring match. You can skip this and celebrate “Microsoft Day” instead.

Prediction: 1-0 or 0-1, who cares?
Players to select: Avoid!

Hull City V Portsmouth 4 Apr 15:00

Do not select Peter Crouch again. He is a one day wonder.

Prediction: The game will end in a 1-1 stalemate or a late victory for Hull.
Players to select: Geovanni, if you really want to. Yes, Ricketts for defender is a good, cheap buy.

Newcastle V Chelsea 4 Apr 15:00

Chelsea will be back with a bang after their bitter loss to Spurs. Expect plenty of goals against a depleted and demoralized Newcastle side.

Prediction: 4-1 in favor of Chelsea.
Players to select: Lampard (if you haven’t already, he is going to cost you a fortune). Select Essien, if you can’t afford Lampard.

West Brom V Stoke City 4 Apr 15:00

The last of the boring encounters this game week. If you already celebrated “Microsoft’s Day”, then go for a stroll with your wife. If you ain’t married, take your dog instead. If you don’t have a dog, then do something instead!

Prediction: 1-0 or 0-1, who cares?
Players to select: Avoid!

West Ham V Sunderland 4 Apr 15:00

Carlton Cole is back and so, do you find ya’self lucky, Mackems?

Prediction: 2-1 for West Ham
Players: Pick up Carlton Cole, a cost effective forward.

Fulham V Liverpool 4 Apr 17:30

Liverpool will do an Aston again.

Prediction: 4-1 for Liverpool.
Players: Gerrard and Reina(if you haven’t have them already!). However, you could also possibly look at Mark Schwarzer as the GK. He has done outstandingly well in the EPL this season and comes real cheap.

Everton V Wigan 5 Apr 15:00

I am predicting a late- lucky goal for Everton.

Prediction: 1-0 to Everton
Players: Pick up Baines

Man Utd V Aston Villa 5 Apr 16:00

Manchester United will bounce back and so will Ronaldo.
Aston Villa will lose this game again. The look like a tired side and have been morally beaten.

Prediction: 2-0 to ManUtd.
Players to select: OShea for defender and Ronaldo for Midfielder.
