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.
We’re concentrating on five FA Cup matches on Saturday for our entry into Mondogoal’s freeroll with a guaranteed £100 prize pool:
- Arsenal vs Burnley
- Nottingham Forest vs Watford
- Portsmouth vs Bournemouth
- Aston Villa vs Manchester City
- Liverpool vs West Ham
|Defender||Bacary Sagna||Manchester City||£8.6m|
|Midfielder||Fabian Delph||Manchester City||£7.7m|
|Midfielder||Mark Noble||West Ham||£6.8m|
|Forward||Sergio Aguero||Manchester City||£14.8m|
We’ve picked our team early which means we’re risking some unusual team selections, especially from the Premier League teams. We’ve picked no Arsenal players for this reason and have tried to include some of the more reliable players from the other big teams.
We expect a clean sheet from Bournemouth (Artur Boruc in goal behind Charlie Daniels), Manchester City (Bacary Sagna) and Watford (Craig Cathcart).
In midfield we’ve picked a selection of regular starters and are just hoping that the various managers are kind to us – Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen from Liverpool along with Fabian Delph from Manchester City and Mark Noble from West Ham.
Up front we’ve gone with three proven goal scorers in Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Odion Ighalo (Watford) and Roberto Firmino (Liverpool). Firmino was our star player from last week and we hope he can repeat his fantastic performance.
