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 almost a full complement of Premier League matches on Saturday and we’re entering a team in Mondogoal’s Perfect Million Freeroll – there’s a £1m prize on offer if you can pick all the top scoring players.
- Liverpool vs Sunderland
- Aston Villa vs Norwich
- Newcastle United vs West Bromwich Albion
- Southampton vs West Ham
- Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford
- Swansea City vs Crystal Palace
- Stoke City vs Everton
Here’s Our Pick:
|Defender||Joleon Lescott||Aston Villa||£7.5m|
|Midfielder||Glenn Whelan||Stoke City||£6.5m|
|Forward||Marko Arnautovic||Stoke City||£7.2m|
There appears to be plenty of potential points available on Saturday with several possible clean sheets – Spurs, Liverpool, Villa plus some scoring options both in midfield and up front.
Spurs’ keeper Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier occupy the defence alongside Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne and Aston Villa’s Joleon Lescott; a Villa player might seem like an odd choice but we think they have a decent chance of a clean sheet against a Norwich team in poor form.
There are three obvious midfield choices here and all in good form – Everton’s Ross Barkley, Spurs’ Dele Alli and Newcastle’s Georginio Wijnaldum; Glenn Whelen lines up with them and the Stoke player is cheap and consistent while not spectacular.
Harry Kane remains an obvious choice up front and he really should grab a hatful of points against Watford; Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino should likewise earn some points against Sunderland and lastly we’ve gone for Stoke’s Marko Arnautovic who returns from injury against Everton.
