This week we have entered into the Fanteam £100 Premier League Freeroll! If you haven’t registered your FREE account, you can do so here, and join us in the gameweek 10 competition.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s our team:
At the back we are taking a big punt tripling up on West Ham, with Roberto, Issa Diop and Aaron Cresswell. This could be seen as a gamble, but with Newcastle having scored just 6 goals in 10 games, this feels like it could come off securing us 3 clean sheets from one game. Our final defender that completes a back three is fantasy football bargain of the season, John Lundstram. Sheffield United host Burnley at home this gameweek and so far this season the Blades have only conceded 4 goals in 5 home games, which include fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal!
We have two big hitters in the middle of the park this gameweek with Raheem Sterling and Mohamed Salah. Both have had good starts to the season and we hope this will continue as they face Southampton and Aston Villa respectively. Leandro Trossard makes the cut, as Brighton face Norwich. The Canaries have conceded 17 goals this season, being the third worst, whilst Trossard has only played 272 minutes having scored and assisted in that time. Leicester’s penalty taker Luka Milivojevic has scored 2 this season, which no doubt would have been 3 if he had been on the pitch when van Aanholt dispatched a penalty for the Eagles. This week Palace host an in form Leicester side, in a fixture which is likely to see plenty of goals. Our final midfielder is Adama Traore, solely with the hope that he replicates the spectacular performance he had against Manchester City when Wolves travel to London to face Arsenal.
Teemu Pukki has been on a bit of a gal drought of late, but with a fixture against Brighton this weekend, we are tipping him to get back to scoring ways. Our second striker is Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has also struggled for goals of late. Aubameyang scored 7 goals in the first 7 gameweeks, but has not scored in his last 3, hopefully this will change as the Gunners host Wolves.
Captaincy – This week our captaincy currently sits with Aubameyang, but no doubt we will have a tinker with the team ahead of the deadline!
