EPL Preview: Sunderland, Swansea, West Brom and West Ham

Finishing up our EPL fantasy preview

Simon Watts

Wrapping up our EPL fantasy preview with the bottom four teams alphabetically: Sunderland, Swansea, West Brom and West Ham. That is ONE exciting foursome!

Sunderland

Key Player to Watch: Steven Fletcher. A key player in helping Sunderland survive relegation last year.

Will He Or Won't He: Jozy Altidore. 1 goal all of last season. Coming off of a hamstring injury in the World Cup. Had a great run leading up to Brazil. Which Altidore will show up?

Why Not?: John O'Shea. It's a fun name to yell while drunk at a bar at 10 a.m. on a Saturday

Defense: Wes Brown

In Goal: Vito Mannone, I suppose. My lack of enthusiasm for him can NOT come across this text as much as I would like it to.

Swansea

Key Player to Watch: Nathan Dyer. It's Swansea: I don't have much to say.

Don't Risk It, Take Him: Gylfi Sigurdsson. He scores goals.

Blah!: Ashley Williams.

In Goal: Gerhard Tremmel or Lukasz Fabianski. They could put LeBron James in goal and I would still hate to watch Swansea.

West Bromwich Albion

Key Player to Watch: Stephane Sessegnon. Note to self: West Brom has a LOT of old players.

Crafty Veteran: Chris Brunt

Nah, Not Worth It: James Morrison

In Net: Ben Foster. Solid. (Can you tell I am running out of witty things to say?  This week has almost used all of my creativity.)

West Ham

Key Players to Watch: Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan. They are both good players to have on your team.

NOOOOOOO!: Stewart Downing

I Refuse To Have Him Because Of His Name: Jussi Jääskeläinen. Listen, I am all for umlauts but throat is insane.

In Goal: Most likely the guy I just spent three hours typing out his name.
