Last game week was quite a low scoring week, with a lot of heavily owned players blanking. Hopefully, this week is the exact opposite, with plenty of goals from each player! Hope you have a good week, but let’s first have a look at last week’s picks:
1. Sergio Aguero – 2 points
2. Olivier Giroud – 11 points
3. Jordan Henderson – 7 points
Gamble – Diego Costa – 6 points
Differential – Charlie Austin – 2 points
Anyway, onto this week’s picks;
1. Harry Kane (LEI)
Need I say anymore about Kane? Although he blanked this week, the last time he blanked twice in a row was in GW14, in December. He very rarely blanks, and with Spurs playing Leicester, at home, surely it should be a comfortable win for Tottenham, and Kane has to be nailed on to score!
2. Diego Costa (HUL)
Chelsea play Hull away this week, and Costa’s away record is fantastic. He has 24 points in his last three away games, and they do play Hull, who have only got five clean sheets all season. Can Diego’s run carry on against Hull? It’ll be unlikely for him not to bag a goal!
3. Olivier Giroud (NEW)
Giroud is in fantastic form at the moment, scoring 45 points in the last 6 games, with 4 goals in his last four games. Surely his incredibly run cannot end as Arsenal take on Newcastle, who are in a poor form at the moment. He’s only owned by 11%, so a good performance by him would see you soar up the rankings!
Gamble – Jordan Henderson (MUN)
He’s a big gamble this week, only because he does play in a deep role, and his goal on Monday was quite lucky. Liverpool take on Man United, who are hitting form, however Liverpool are also in very good form, so if he does perform well, I can’t see him being captained by many, so it would see your rank soar!
Differential – Gabriel Agbonlahor (SWA)
Massive differential this one, as he is owned by 1% of managers. He is starting to hit some form, scoring 3 goals in two games. Aston Villa are starting to get the goals in, so maybe Gabriel could keep his form going? If he does perform well, and you do captain him, this would be insane for your ranks!
