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.
There’s just three matches on Sunday so if you can drag yourself away from the Valentine’s Day activities there’s a competition to enter involving three Premier League matches:
- Arsenal vs Leicester City
- Aston Villa vs Liverpool
- Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
Here’s Our Pick:
|Defender||Bacary Sagna||Manchester City||£8.8m|
|Midfielder||Daniel Drinkwater||Leicester City||£7.1m|
|Midfielder||Yaya Toure||Manchester City||£9.9m|
|Forward||Sergio Aguero||Manchester City||£15.6m|
This is a lineup of fixtures with no obvious outcomes unless Liverpool can show some much-needed consistency at Villa Park; there looks to be goals in all three matches so a three-at-the-back formation seems like a good idea.
We’re banking on a Liverpool clean sheet at Aston Villa so we’ve gone for the (slightly risky) Simon Mignolet in goal behind Nathaniel Clyne; Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal and Manchester City’s Bacary Sagna line up alongside them.
Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City always seems to be a cheap but consistent scorer and he lines up alongside an eclectic mix of players from other teams including James Milner from Liverpool, Yaya Toure from Manchester City and Mousa Dembele from Spurs (surely there’s some points in there somewhere).
We’ve taken something of a punt on Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge, now back from injury and looking sharp in his appearances so far; Sergio Aguero costs a fortune but seems to still be worth it. Arsenal’s Theo Walcott is a cheap option but we’ll have to check the lineups at the last minute to see if he starts.
