So this week we have gone for a 3-4-3 formation. To kick things off we have Joe Hart in goal. His team mate, Kolarov, also features in our defence, as they both go and face Newcastle this week. Alongside the Serbian we have both Hutton and Amavi so its clear to say we are banking on Aston Villa and Manchester City clean sheets!

In the middle of the park we have some promising differentials. We have Ritchie who is facing Watford. Our second midfielder is Puncheon, who seems to be perfoming well with Crystal Palace of late! Nathan Redmond faces off against a tough Stoke City team this week, but we are banking on him finding the back of the net! Our final midfielder is one which many of you will have on your fantasy football radars, in the form of West Ham’s Payet! Hopefully they all can continue their good form and grab us some points this week!

Finally up top we have taken some gambles, firstly with Danny Ings. The striker has played midweek, but has shown some promising perfomances… fingers crossed! We then have Aguero and Sakho, with the latter taking the captain’s armband, as he faces the out of form Sunderland.

So onto FPL Avids‘ team:

So after cashing in the previous 2 times I’ve played in I’m quietly confident about making it 3 in a row. This week has a huge prize pot so hopefully I can take a slice of it.

In goal I’ve gone for Butland who for once might actually keep a clean sheet to go along with his excellent form against a poor Villa side. I’ve doubled up on Stoke this week so the infamous Glen Johnson earns a spot in my starting 11. Completing my defence I’ve gone for Cook of Bournemouth and Nyom of Watford. They face each other and I believe it’ll either be a stalemate or a narrow 1-0 victory.

In midfield I’ve gone for the in-form Kevin De Bruyne at home to Newcastle. Mahrez gets a spot in my team away to Norwich, and I think this may be the last successful week for the Leicester boys before the bandwagon starts to derail. Payet’s pick is also self-explanatory; he’s in form and against perhaps the easiest team in the league, Sunderland. That coupled with West Ham’s away form makes him a good pick. Completing my midfield is Barkley. The Merseyside derby is always high scoring and I reckon Everton will walk away victors this time.

Up top I’ve gone for Lukaku and Vardy for previously determined factors as discussed with Mahrez and Barkley. Completing and captaining my team is Aguero. I’m keeping faith! He’s scoring in every other competition but the BPL. This is the week he scores a brace. I’m telling you. Well, he’ll probably blank AGAIN.

Note: Both teams are subject to change. May the best FPL manager win!
