Premier League Fantasy Week 6
Let’s take a look at the match-ups with players to have prepared for the upcoming Premier League weekend:
The London Derby: Arsenal and Chelsea square off in the first London Derby of the season. With Arsenal and Chelsea coming off strong performances last weekend, there is a wide array of players to choose from. For Arsenal, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are great attacking options, but consider carefully using the midfield or defensive players under Arsene Wenger’s watch. Chelsea’s Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, Willian, Oscar, and Pedro are all great options to have prepared. Defensively, John Terry is a great option on defense.
Manchester United vs. Leicester City: Manchester United, despite winning against Northampton Town in the English League Cup are still coming off three straight losses in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho may make drastic changes in the lineup as far as dropping Wayne Rooney, or a formation change. There’s a possibility United could go to a 4-3-3, so look out for Memphis Depay, Marcus Rashford, and Juan Mata to make impacts in this formation. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba should remain starters so have them in your lineups if you have them. With all this uncertainty surrounding United, make this an opportunity to decide if Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez should remain in your teams.
Everton, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur: All these teams are facing very winnable games in all aspects, including goalkeeping. Simply put, if have players like Ross Barkley (Everton), Phillippe Coutinho (Liverpool), or Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), have them ready to go.
Good luck and enjoy the matches!
