Gameweek 27 is fast approaching and most fantasy football enthusiasts will be well aware of the fact that Chelsea, Tottenham, QPR and Leicester City don’t have a premier league fixture this week. Undoubtedly this will cause many headaches when it comes to team selection! Our advice is make sure you plan your transfers ahead making sure your players will not have many blank weeks. Now to the matter at hand… the captaincy.
But first let’s revisit last weeks picks
1. Diego Costa- 2 Points
2. Alexis Sanchez- 3 Points
3. Harry Kane- 4 Points
Gamble – Raheem Sterling- 8 Points
Differential – Yaya Toure – 2 points
Now moving right on to this weeks picks.
1. Sergio Aguero (LIV)
City face a tough trip to the leagues form side in Liverpool, however Aguero has been in sensational form of late and is always likely to bag a decent points total. In the league City are coming off the back of a 5-0 demolition of Newcastle, so look well prepared to travel to Anfield, with Aguero looking to get on the score sheet.
2. Santi Carzola (EVE)
Arsenal face what usually would be a tough home game against Everton, but I more than most know this season Everton haven’t been anywhere near the standards they set last year. Everton have a Europa league game on Thursday, which means Arsenal are likely to be fresher than the Toffee’s on Sunday. Carzola has been outstanding of late with assists and goals (mostly penalties) coming thick and fast for the Spaniard. Arsenal are in good form and will probably continue there fine form at the Emirates on Sunday
3. Jonathan Walters (HUL)
Walters has been the stand out performer in a Stoke team in some indifferent form. He got a hatrick in gameweek 23 and has since became a shrewd differential. This week Stoke City face a home game against a Hull team who have been very unpredictable with their form, especially on the road were the Tigers haven’t been great. It is entirely possible Stoke could perform well and given recent form you would expect Walters to do well. He is a great option if you are after a good differential pick.
Gamble- Daniel Sturridge (MCI)
Daniel Sturridge has hardly set the world alight since his long awaited return from injury, but has put in a few solid performances in recent weeks so could be due for a big performance at home to his old club Manchester City on Sunday. A big gamble, but Sturridge is surely due a big week sooner rather than later
Differential- Ander Herrera (SUN)
The Spaniard has been a bit part player since a big money arrival from Athletic Bilbao, however he has been in the starting team in recent weeks and has been turning in some really impressive performances. With United in sluggish form I would expect the Spaniard to keep his place at home to a Sunderland team in awful form. I really think Ander Herrera is worth a look at this week
Thanks for reading and good luck.
