The 7th gameweek of the season dawns upon us & along with it comes the FPL Gameweek 7 Preview! This weekend offers an exciting range of Premier League fixtures, of which could bring some huge fantasy football points!
So good luck and may your arrows be green. Here’s our FPL Gameweek 7 Preview:
Everton vs Crystal Palace
Both Everton and Palace have had a decent start to the season, both placed quite comfortably in the top half of the table. Palace come into this game after a nail biting finish at the Stadium of Lights while, Everton are on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat to the Cherries. Everton will definitely be looking to bounce back and should have the upper hand in this Friday night fixture.
STAR MAN: Romelu Lukaku (9.3m)
The Belgian is in red hot form and will be determined to get back on the scoresheet after blanking against the Cherries.
PREDICTION: Everton 2-0 Crystal Palace
Swansea vs Liverpool
Swansea City haven’t had the best of starts to the season having not won any of their last 5 games and this week they face a Liverpool side that are on a hot streak having won each of their last 3 fixtures. Liverpool have been playing some and that amazing football and they should definitely have the upper hand in this fixture.
STAR MAN: Roberto Firmino (8.4m)
He won’t get any better opportunity than this to shine to his full potential.
PREDICTION: Swansea 1-4 Liverpool
Hull vs Chelsea
Both Hull and Chelsea haven’t been performing to the level they would have liked in recent weeks, however it will be tough for Hull to change this as they come up against Conte’s men. It ‘should’ be straight forward win for the Blues, but then again nothing is straight forward in the Premier League.
STAR MAN: Diego Costa (10.0m)
The Spaniard has the ability to single handedly win his side to the 3 points.
PREDICTION: Hull 0-2 Chelsea
Sunderland vs West Brom
Sunderland are comfortably placed 20th and seem to have no intentions of coming back, whilst the Baggies have shown some form in recent weeks after bagging 4 points in the last 2 games! An easy win could be on the cards for the Baggies, not just because Pulis’ side are playing exceptionally well, but just because Sunderland are not performing to the level they should be.
STAR MAN: Nacer Chadli (6.4m)
The Belgian has hit the ground running since joining the Baggies and should play a pivotal role should West Brom win.
PREDICTION: Sunderland 1-2 West Brom
Watford vs Bournemouth
Watford have looked like a completely different side since the start of the season and have picked up some unexpected results in recent weeks, with a win against Manchester United and a loss against Burnley. Meanwhile the Cherries haven’t played to their full potential in any of the recent games, which could be argued is due to the lack a clinical striker. It seems to be an open ended game with both sides likely to have a fair amount of opportunities to take home the 3 points.
STAR MAN: Troy Deeney (7.0m)
The Englishman has proved time and time again what leading by example is.
PREDICTION: Watford 2-0 Bournemouth
West Ham vs Middlesbrough
West Ham are simply having a rotten time, as they succumbed to Southampton last time out and nothing seems to be going right for them. Boro on the other hand are also on the back of 3 successive defeats. Both teams are desperate of a win and this desperation might just bring the best out of both the sides.
STAR MAN: Dimitri Payet (9.4m)
The French lad has shown signs of promise in recent games and has the ability to single handedly inspire his side to a win.
PREDICTION: West Ham 2-1 Middlesbrough
Manchester United vs Stoke
In simple words, this is a fight of a lion and a deer, and we all know who has the upper hand in this fixture, even without the stats to back it. With Stoke conceding left, right and centre, United shouldn’t need to come out of second gear as they host Stoke at Old Trafford.
STAR MAN: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (11.5m)
We will definitely be shocked not to see Zlatan get on the scoresheet in this game.
PREDICTION: Manchester United 3-0 Stoke City
Leicester City vs Southampton
The Champions have come into this game after a big thumping at Old Trafford and will be quite adamant to get back to winning ways, whilst Southampton are trying to keep the momentum going after having won each of the last 2 fixtures. This fixture seems like it will be a tight fixture, with both sides giving in their all.
STAR MAN: Charlie Austin (6.3m)
The ex QPR man seems to have rediscovered his old form and could have something to say in this fixture.
PREDICTION: Leicester City 2-2 Southampton
Tottenham vs Manchester City
Arguably the fixture of the weekend, where the current top 2 sides go head to head in a battle for supremacy. Both sides are in top form, but the Aguero factor that City possess could be just enough to win it for the Citizens.
STAR MAN: Sergio Aguero (13.0m)
Who else could it be, when the Argentine is in such great form.
PREDICTION: Tottenham 1-3 Manchester City
Burnley vs Arsenal
A side placed 3rd on the table faces a side placed 13th and it seems it could be a pretty obvious result, with the Gunners in such a great form. Investment in Arsenal fantasy football players looks to be the way forward, although Burnley do have a victory against Liverpool to their name…
STAR MAN: Alexis Sanchez (11.1m)
The Chilean looks a must have in fantasy football, with such great upcoming fixtures.
PREDICTION: Burnley 0-3 Arsenal
