A long international break is over and now it’s back to club football which means Fantasy Premier League returns as managers across the globe will be hoping for plenty more points this weekend. At All Out Football we’ve been giving you a few tips on who to pick each week, with a high success rate so far our writers give you their must haves for this week in your quest for Fantasy football stardom.
David Robinson – Javier Hernandez – £7.1m
David’s pick is West Ham’s Chicarito who has been chosen by over a quarter of players, and rightfully so. The Mexican is one of the most prolific strikers in Premier League history and his opening two goals in three games would suggest they’ll be plenty more this season. For just over £7 million you can’t go wrong and whilst Monday opponents Huddersfield haven’t conceded a goal as of yet, you have a half decent chance of him breaking that record with plenty of points likely to follow meaning the former United man is worth getting in early.
Ryan Fisher – Alfie Mawson – £5.0m
The Swansea centre half already has 12 points this season and now could be the perfect opportunity to put in a very underrated defender for a bargain price. Mawson is likely to be a big part of Paul Clement’s plans after the Swans have made a positive start to their league campaign. He has already chipped in with some big goals and with a more resurgent looking side, they shouldn’t be so fragile at the back. Going into this weekend Ryan thinks they will be full of confidence playing a Newcastle side who have a blunt attack, this is why Mawson should be going straight into your side with 4 potential points coming the defenders way with a clean sheet on the cards.
Luke Marsh – Alexandre Lacazette – £10.4m /Nathaniel Chalobah – £4.5m
My personal choice this week comes from two games in particular. Alexandre Lacazette got the ball rolling in his first game against Leicester, and looked like that signing that Arsenal have been screaming out for, for so long. A goal on his debut was enough for many Arsenal fans to have reason to be optimistic in their now exciting attacking line-up. The Gunners’ record signing is more than probable to start in tomorrow’s game against a struggling Bournemouth side, who are yet to get off the mark. Personally, I can only see the home side going rampant in this one, and it’s difficult to see the French talisman not to get on the scoresheet.
My second choice comes from the Southampton vs Watford game. Nathaniel Chalobah looks to be an absolute steal for The Hornets this season, joining the Hertfordshire outfit for an astonishing £5 million. This game, tomorrow, itself, in my opinion has all in the making for a complete stalemate. Southampton struggling for goals, and a Watford side that are already looking a lot more thrilling to watch than that of last season. Marco Silva will know it will be a tough test in store, so, I think, it will be a setup that will happily see a point taken and move onto the next game. Chalobah will play a key role in that midfield and I can see a clean sheet, meaning points points points.
Rhys Paul – Solomon Rondon – £6.3m
Rhys reckons Rondon could be a worthy pick this week, the West Brom forward hasn’t been prolific in recent months but he is certainly due a goal and with a well setup West Brom side, this could be the perfect time to buy the striker with West Brom facing a Brighton side yet to win in the league. It’s not hard to look into this too much without seeing that this would seem like a sensible, conservative choice to make, especially for that price!
Siddesh Iyer – Eden Hazard & Ahmed Hegazi – £10.5m & £4.9m
Eden Hazard is returning to action so you can take an edge over your opponent who may forget about one of the best players in the leagues arrival. The Belgium winger will no doubt have an impact on the Chelsea side and is always a safe bet for points so get him in early and it could make all the difference! Siddesh also thinks that Hegazi is a must buy for this weeks fixtures. Again, reverting back to the WBA vs Brighton fixture, Siddesh is another one who sees nothing more than a West Brom clean sheet, maybe with Hegazi chipping in with a goal?
