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 another riveting weekend of Premier League football, especially for Leicester City fans, there are just two matches in the high leagues on Tuesday evening – an FA Cup replay and a Championship match up:
- West Ham vs Liverpool
- MK Dons vs Middlesbrough
Here’s Our Pick:
|Defender||Aaron Cresswell||West Ham||£8.4m|
|Midfielder||Dmitri Payet||West Ham||£11.8m|
|Midfielder||Ben Reeves||MK Dons||£6.6m|
|Forward||Enner Valencia||West Ham||£6.9m|
Middlesbrough are joint top of the league with games in hand over their rivals, having conceded just 15 goals all season; however they are without a win in three and will want to get back on track against an MK Dons team just one place above the relegation zone.
Liverpool head to the Boleyn Ground for this FA Cup replay and it’s a game both clubs could have done without; however it’s still one to win and we should see strong teams selected.
We have confidence that Boro will keep a clean sheet at MK Dons on Tuesday so we’ve picked Dimitrios Konstantopoulos in goal behind Ben Gibson. They are accompanied by West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell and Liverpool’s Mamadou Sakho – both players in good form.
The midfield contains one player from each team – even MK Dons – and so we have Stewart Downing (Boro), James Milner (Liverpool), Dmitri Payet (West Ham) and Ben Reeves, a decent scorer from MK Dons.
Up front we have two players in good form in the shape of Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) and Enner Valencia (West Ham). We’ve also taken a punt on Jordan Rhodes, Boro’s new signing but may swap him out if he’s not selected to start.
