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.
A week of European action draws to a close but three’s no Premier League action this weekend, it’s all about the FA Cup fifth round and four matches from which to select our players:
- Arsenal vs Hull City
- Watford vs Leeds United
- Reading vs West Bromwich Albion
- Bournemouth vs Everton
Here’s Our Pick:
|Defender||Craig Dawson||West Brom||£8.1m|
There look to be two home bankers here – Arsenal vs Hull and Watford vs Leeds so we’ve based our selection around those two teams. West Brom currently have a very good defensive record so Baggies players have features also.
We expect clean sheets for Watford, Arsenal and West Brom and so we have the Hornets’ Heurelho Gomes in goal behind Nyom; Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny and West Brom’s Craig Dawson occupy the other two spots. Arsene Wenger hasn’t given much away yet but he has said that Koscielny will start along with Mohamed Elneny in midfield and Danny Welbeck up front.
Arsenal will have loads of possession and passes against Hull and so we have two of their players in midfield, Mohamed Elneny and Aaron Ramsey. Everton’s Ross Barkely is always a consistent points scorer and Watford’s Ben Watson completes the midfield area.
Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck is in an ideal position to score against Hull and he lines up alongside Everton’s reliable Romelu Lukaku and Watford’s in-form striker Troy Deeney.
*In the event that certain players are not selected, last-minute changes may be required.
