The previous gameweek proved to be quite an upsetting one with most people ending up with those dreaded red arrows, but getting over them and striving for greens is what FPL is all about. So, pick yourself up and let us help you plan for the upcoming gameweek 12 with this week’s preview.
Best of luck and may your arrows be green!
Burnley vs Manchester City
Burnley are on the back of a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of WBA at the Hawthorns and on the other hand, Manchester City came back strong to win against the Eagles and take the three points in an away game. You’ve got to fancy the Citizens to be clear favourites to win this game and maybe score plenty too.
STAR MAN: Sergio Aguero (13.2m)
Will be itching to get back to goalscoring form this week and what better opportunity than facing a frail Burnley side.
PREDICTION: Burnley 1-3 Manchester City
Hull vs West Brom
Hull haven’t got any sort of momentum going this season and are up against a rejuvenated Baggies team that smashed four goals in last time out. The Baggies will be looking to take advantage of the vulnerable situation that Hull find themselves in and look to take the crucial three points away from home.
STAR MAN: Salomon Rondon (6.5m)
The big man is in form and due for a big one; what a perfect opportunity for him to score big against a weak Hull team.
PREDICTION: Hull City 0-2 West Bromwich Albion
Leicester vs Middlesbrough
Leicester City’s slump in form after last year’s heroics is somewhat surprising considering that they retained most of their players. Boro have been playing quite well and even though they lost to Chelsea last week, they put up a good fight and defended decently too. The Foxes might just have an edge in this game with the home advantage.
STAR MAN: Wes Morgan (5.0m)
A solid performance from their captain will be needed.
PREDICTION: Leicester City 1-0 Middlesbrough
Liverpool vs Sunderland
Liverpool and Klopp were left disappointed after a goalless draw at St.Mary’s last time out. Sunderland are on the back of back to back wins and have the momentum needed to topple the reds, but playing away from home might make it a very tough ask to beat a free flowing reds team.
STAR MAN: Roberto Firmino (8.8m)
Man in form and playing the striker role, he will be one of the most pertinent threats to Sunderland’s defence.
PREDICTION: Liverpool 4-1 Sunderland
Swansea vs Crystal Palace
Swansea’s home form this season has been ridiculous and they seem to be finding no sort of form or consistency in their game. Palace on the other hand are also struggling after five consecutive defeats; they are leaking goals at the back but this fixture provides them with a chance to get back to winning ways and get their season back on track.
STAR MAN: Wilfried Zaha (5.3m)
He has been lively in the last few games, with an assist in each of the last 4 games. A huge point haul might be just around the corner.
PREDICTION: Swansea 1-2 Crystal Palace
Chelsea vs Tottenham
This game is definitely the game of the weekend with both sides in top form. On one hand we have Spurs who are unbeaten since day 1 while on the other we have Chelsea who have emerged winners in each of their last 6 games, not conceding a single goal in the process. This fixture definitely promises high quality football with each team having plenty to play for.
STAR MAN: Diego Costa (10.5m)
The Spaniard is in top form, and might have something to say when Spurs visit the Bridge.
PREDICTION: Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur
Watford vs Stoke
The Potters come into this game having narrowly lost to the Cherries in a well fought battle while the Hornets are on the back of a win against the defending Champions. Both teams seem hungry and definitely in the mood to point a prove. It seems like it’ll be an open ended game with both sides battling it out for the 3 points.
STAR MAN: Roberto Pereyra (6.0m)
After scoring a spectacular goal at the weekend, he will be determined to get on the scoresheet yet again.
PREDICTION: Watford 1-1 Stoke City
Arsenal vs Bournemouth
The Cherries come into this game with much confidence having scraped a win last time out against the Potters, while the Gunners are on the back of a miserable performance at Old Trafford, having luckily squeezed out a point at the death. The Gunners will be determined to get over their underwhelming performance by getting back to winning ways in the best of fashion. An open and shut case, an easy Arsenal win.
STAR MAN: Theo Walcott (7.8m)
His pace and running behind defenders could be something that could disturb the Cherries defence.
PREDICTION: Arsenal 3-0 Bournemouth
Manchetser United vs West Ham
Mourinho’s men were better last weekend after having kept the free flowing Arsenal at bay, but still had to settle for a point in the end. The Hammers are on a miserable run and with the form they are currently showing, it could prove to be a field day for the Reds, as Mourinho won’t be expecting anything less than the 3 points.
STAR MAN: Juan Mata (7.4m)
The Spaniard has proved to be at the heart of the Man Utd attack and might pop up with a goal or two this weekend.
PREDICTION: Manchester United 3-1 West Ham United
Southampton vs Everton
Both sides are on the back of nail biting draws last time out and both managers will will be determined to get back to winning ways. It could prove to be a pretty topsy turvy fixture with loads of goals in it, definitely a game to look out for.
STAR MAN: Romelu Lukaku (9.9m)
After having squandered a few clear cut chances against the Swans, he will be determined to lead his side from the front.
PREDICTION: Southampton 1-2 Everton
