Fantasy Premier League Preview – Gameweek 8 – FPL Tips

After last gameweek’s somewhat predictable results, this gameweek has some more action with who knows what might happen. Here are some tips for you managers to make full use of this gameweek and rise up the rankings.

Good luck & may your arrows be green!

Brighton vs West Ham

Brighton came off second best against the Citizens last weekend whereas the Hammers were victorious against their rivals United who have been quite poor so far this season. This could be an interesting game considering West Ham’s poor away form and Brighton possessing the attack to trouble their defence.

STAR MAN: Felipe Anderson (6.8m)

Has been probing well and can cause trouble to the Brighton defence.

PREDICTION: Brighton 1-2 West Ham

Burnley vs Huddersfield

Burnley have now won two on the trot and lifted themselves out of that bottom three after a poor start to the season. Huddersfield still bottom and having lost their last three games are low on confidence and have no momentum going forward. They look like losing their fourth game on the spin here against this in-form Burnley team.

STAR MAN: Aaron Lennon (5.0m)

Pace on the wings could really trouble this Huddersfield defence which is slow out of the blocks.

PREDICTION: Burnley 1-0 Huddersfield

Crystal Palace vs Wolves

Palace have been very unpredictable with their results so far this season whereas Wolves have lost just one game so far and they surely look like the team with more steel to clinch the three points. This being a home game for the Eagles will make it difficult for Wolves and thereby making this an interesting watch.

STAR MAN: Wilfried Zaha (7.0m)

He seems to be the option with the highest probability of scoring with the trickery and skills on the wings.

PREDICTION: Crystal Palace 1-1 Wolves

Leicester vs Everton

Both teams with highly attacking players are up against each other to provide what will surely be one of the most entertaining matches of this gameweek. Everton finally broke their winless run last weekend whereas Leicester are currently on a run of two consecutive wins. At home they will surely be looking to make this three on the spin.

STAR MAN: Theo Walcott (6.6m)

He seems to have got his form back and can be devastating on the wings against such defences.

PREDICTION: Leicester 2-2 Everton

Tottenham vs Cardiff

Spurs occupy that fourth spot above their rivals Arsenal on goal difference but will still feel they can play better than their showings. This home game against Cardiff could be a goal fest with the poor defence that Cardiff have.

STAR MAN: Harry Kane (12.5m)

This should be a matter of how many for the big man in this game.

PREDICTION: Tottenham 3-0 Cardiff

Watford vs Bournemouth

A clash between two sides who have started their season on the front foot, sitting quite high up the league table, level on points. Both these sides will certainly be hungry for more and this could just bring out the best in them. An end to end game seems to be on the cards.

STAR MAN: Ryan Fraser (5.9m)

Averaging 6 points per game this season, this could be another opportunity to add to his tally.

PREDICTION: Watford 1-2 Bournemouth

Manchester United vs Newcastle

With speculations surrounding Mourinho’s future at Old Trafford, it’s high time his side delivers to show why he has more Premier League titles than the other 19 managers.

STAR MAN: Romelu Lukaku (11.0m)

He will need to have his shooting boots on for this one.

PREDICTION: Manchester United 2-0 Newcastle

Fulham vs Arsenal

5 convincing league wins on the trot. Emery’s Gunners side will surely be mentally ready to boss the Cottagers.

STAR MAN: Alexandre Lacazette (9.5m)

Returns in each of the last 5 games. No reason for him not to do it again.

PREDICTION: Fulham 1-3 Arsenal

Southampton vs Chelsea

Chelsea under Sarri have been nothing but phenomenal this season. The Saints on the contrary have been winless in the last 3. It should be a piece of cake for the Blues.

STAR MAN: Eden Hazard (11.1m)

He is undoubtedly their go-to man.

PREDICTION: Southampton 0-2 Chelsea

Liverpool vs Manchester City

The gameweek ends with undoubtedly the game of the season so far, with 2 league giants going head to head. Liverpool will surely be determined to bounce back after succumbing to Hazard’s heroics last time out, while the Citizens will surely want to take revenge for the humiliation they faced at Anfield last season. This one certainly promises entertainment and more importantly, goals.

STAR MAN: Raheem Sterling (11.0m)

Time to come back and haunt his former club.

PREDICTION: Liverpool 2-2 Manchester City
