Welcome back everybody to the latest edition of Things’ Top Trump but most importantly welcome back to FPL. After a draining wait for fantasy football action due to the international break, it’s finally back. My Top Trump for this week is an interesting one, as I have opted for Alexis Sanchez who faces Stoke City at the Emirates this weekend.
Alexis needs no introduction. This magician of a player is a blessing in the Premier League and to FPL owners, currently standing at a surprisingly low 12.8%. I think it’s fair to say that Alexis hasn’t hit the points that FPL managers would expect, however I expect him to return from the International break and fire like he did last season.
This fixture last season ended in an easy 3-0 victory for the Gunners, and guess who scored a brace? Correct, Alexis Sanchez. I think it’s fair to say that Arsenal are already clear favourites and having a look at Stoke’s available side for this game, it’s weak. Both Adam and Afellay are suspended after seeing red last week, Mame Biram Diouf is also doubtful, alongside Glen Johnson and Arnautovic.
He’s a pick I believe many will opt for this week and I imagine for quite a few FPL managers including myself, Sanchez will have the pleasure of wearing the armband! I expect to see Alexis back to his mighty best… I hope.
