Mo Salah and Harry Kane, the two most prolific Premier League attackers in the past 12 months notched two points for AJ whilst Aleksandar Mitrovic’s brace gifted Jake a point, accompanying Salah’s winner against Brighton. Deadlocked on Week 3, deadlocked overall.
Week 3 Score: Jake 2-2 AJ
Overall Score: Jake 6-6 AJ
James Maddison (LEICESTER CITY v liverpool)
Vardy always scores against Liverpool. Yes, Liverpool haven’t conceded in their imperious start to the season but Vardy comes alive at home to Liverpool. One in the 2-3 loss last September, two in a 3-1 win in February 2017 and another two the February prior which included that goal of the season contender from Vardy. 5 in 3 home games against the Scousers. So who’s going to fill that void? Okazaki? Gray? Nah, James Maddison, mate.
David Brooks (chelsea v BOURNEMOUTH)
Left-field choice maybe but I can see the undefeated Bournemouth causing Chelsea some problems at Stamford Bridge. With the Chelsea players not completely fluid in Sarri’s system as seen in their poor performance at Newcastle, Bournemouth could spring a surprise, ala 2015-16.
Roberto Firmino (leicester city v LIVERPOOL)
Due a goal isn’t he? Mane and Salah have been pumping in the goals in Liverpool’s fantastic start to the season but Firmino’s last goal came in the 2018 World Cup round of 16 match against Mexico.
Raul Jimenez (west ham united v WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS)
This could be the day where it all comes crashing down around Manuel Pellegrini’s ears. They’ve spent a lot of money this summer and have some interesting looking fixtures coming up. In short, they haven’t got a winnable game for a couple of months – they have to attack here. Wolves’ midfield will school West Ham’s and even though Raul Jimenez has looked too good in the opening weeks, I fancy him against a poor West Ham defence.
Sergio Aguero (MANCHESTER CITY v newcastle united)
Newcastle looked fairly resolute in their 1-2 loss at home to Chelsea and were unfortunate to lose. It will be a different story away from home and with a stronger opposition. If they have 19% possession tomorrow night against City there’s only one result and spearheading that Man City attack, Aguero will fancy another home hat-trick.
Romelu Lukaku (burnley vs MANCHESTER UNITED)
Manchester United are certain to bounce back against Burnley after their dismal showing on Monday night against Tottenham. Lukaku will lead the line.
Mo Salah (leicester city vs LIVERPOOL)
More than likely another fill your boots day for Liverpool, even though we said that last week against Brighton (they only managed a 1-0). But I fancy Leicester to have written this one off, to show up and have fun and see what happens. Liverpool 4-1, Salah certain to score.
Ryan Sessegnon (brighton & hove albion vs FULHAM)
With the England team now announced and Sessegnon missing out, it seems only right for him to go and show why he is praised so highly. This should be a good game with plenty of opportunities for both teams. Watch it be 0-0 now and the game that makes you turn off MOTD and go to bed.
Sergio Aguero (MANCHESTER CITY vs newcastle united)
I’ve got to cancel Jake out at some stage and although I don’t think this will be an entirely 1 sided Man City romp. I think there will be goals a plenty and Sergio is looking the most likely at the moment to find the back of the onion bag.
BIG CENK (EVERTON vs huddersfield town)
Obviously. It’s the man.
