Every day we bring you what we think are some sensible selection options based on today’s upcoming matches; we’re not going to promise that these are guaranteed winners because if we could do that we’d all be millionaires by now. These players are all solid picks based on recent stats and their next opponents so check them out.
It’s a big Premier League day on Saturday with seven 3pm kick-offs and an early one at 12:45; this is our selection for DraftKings Quarter Arcade competition with a prize pool of $100.
- Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal
- Manchester City vs Aston Villa
- Bournemouth vs Newcastle
- Swansea City vs Norwich City
- Chelsea vs Stoke City
- Southampton vs Sunderland
- Everton vs West Ham United
Here’s Our Pick:
|Goalkeeper||Joe Hart||Manchester City||$4.5m|
|Defender||Aleksander Kolarov||Manchester City||$5.0m|
|Defender||Ashley Williams||Swansea City||$2.3m|
|Defender||Kyle Naughton||Swansea City||$2.6m|
|Midfielder||Jack Cork||Swansea City||$5.8m|
|Forward||Shinji Okazaki||Leicester City||$4.2m|
|Utility||David Silva||Manchester City||$6.2m|
We’re looking at three teams to provide the majority of the points on Saturday and that’s Manchester City (vs Aston Villa), Chelsea (vs Stoke City) and Swansea City (vs Norwich City). The inclusion of several Swans players allows us some extra budget for some more expensive Man City players.
In goal we have Manchester City’s Joe Hart behind his teammate Aleksander Kolarov and alongside them we’ve picked Ashley Williams and Kyle Naughton from Swansea.All our eggs are in two baskets here.
It’s a strong midfield consisting of Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas, Everton’s Ross Barkley, Man City’s David Silva; our wink link may be Swansea’s Jack Cork but he’s cheap and has scoring potential.
Up front we’re a little on the weak side but Chelsea’s Diego Costa leads the way alongside Leicester’s Shinji Okazaki and Bournemouth’s Andrew Surman.
*In the event that certain players are not selected, last-minute changes may be required.
