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.
All the European competition has ended for this week and we’re back to league action on Friday evening with matches from France, Spain and the English Championship:
- Nice vs Bastia
- Eibar vs Las Palmas
- Hull City vs Sheffield Wednesday
Here’s Our Pick:
|Goalkeeper||Allan McGregor||Hull City||£10.0m|
|Defender||Andrew Robertson||Hull City||£8.2m|
|Defender||Maxime Le Marchand||Nice||£8.6m|
|Midfielder||Hatem Ben Arfa||Nice||£9.2m|
|Midfielder||Mohamed Diame||Hull City||£7.6m|
|Midfielder||Barry Bannan||Sheff Wed||£7.5m|
|Forward||Abel Hernandez||Hull City||£10.0m|
Hull City are top of the Championship and have kept a clean sheet in six of the last seven league games, conceding just one; they host Sheffield Wednesday who are clinging on to the final play-off spot but in patchy form without a win in their last two games.
Eibar are 7th in La Liga with four losses from the last five but up against a Las Palmas team who’ve lost the last three games, scoring one and conceding six; we fancy Eibar for the win.
Nice are third in the French Ligue 1but without a win in three and will be looking for a return to form at home against a Bastia side who have won three of the last four but are down in 14th place. This could be a close match.
We’re trusting Hull to keep another clean sheet with Allan McGregor in goal behind Andrew Robertson; they are joined by Maxime Le Marchand from Nice and David Junca from Eibar.
In our four man midfield we have four decent points-scorers – Hatem Ben Arfa from Nice, Mohamed Diame from Hull, Takashi Inui fromEibar and Barry Bannan from Sheffield Wednesday.
We don’t foresee many goals coming from any of these teams but have selected three consistent strikers from the three likely winners – Abel Hernandez from Hull, Borja Baston from Eibar and Valere Germain from Nice.
*In the event that certain players are not selected, last-minute changes may be required.
