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.
After a break for the FA Cup it’s back to Premier League business on Saturday with six matches spread over three kick off times. Our selection is for Mondogoal’s Perfect Million Freeroll.
- West Ham vs Sunderland
- Stoke City vs Aston Villa
- Watford vs Bournemouth
- Leicester City vs Norwich City
- Southampton vs Chelsea
- West Brom vs Crystal Palace
Here’s Our Pick:
|Goalkeeper||Kasper Schmeichel||Leicester City||£7.2m|
|Defender||Robert Huth||Leicester City||£7.5m|
|Defender||Erik Pieters||Stoke City||£7.7m|
|Defender||Aaron Cresswell||West Ham||£7.9m|
|Midfielder||Glenn Whelan||Stoke City||£6.4m|
|Midfielder||Riyad Mahrez||Leicester City||£12.2m|
|Midfielder||Dmitri Payet||West Ham||£13.0m|
|Forward||Jamie Vardy||Leicester City||£10.3m|
At the beginning of the season we certainly didn’t foresee picking a majority of Leicester City and Stoke City players in our lineup but that’s how it’s turned out on Saturday. Top of the league Leicester host struggling Norwich City while Stoke are at home to botton-of-the-league Aston Villa; we also have two players from West Ham who welcome 19th placed Sunderland to the Boleyn Ground.
Leicester have been solid in defence for some time now and so we’ve gone for Kasper Schmeichel in goal behind Robert Huth. The Hammers’ Aaron Cresswell and Stoke’s Erik Pieters occupy the two remaining spots in the back four.
Our four man midfield features a surfeit of recognisable points-scorers in the shape of Dmitri Payet from West Ham, Willian from Chelsea, Riyad Mahrez from Leicester and Glenn Whelan from Stoke City.
Odion Ighalo from Watford and Jamie Vardy from Leicester are obvious choices up front and at this early stage we’ve also gone for Stoke’s Bojan in the probable absence of Marko Arnautovic but this may change closer to kick off time.
*In the event that certain players are not selected, last-minute changes may be required.
