Cast your minds back to the fourth matchday of the Premier League action before that amazingly interesting first international break of the season. It was slim pickings last time out for the boys as Jake selected Roberto Firmino in the early kick-off whilst AJ had to wait until the matchday’s final game, Burnley v Manchester United, to see his selection of Romelu Lukaku come through.
Week 4 Score: Jake 1-1 AJ
Overall Score: Jake 7-7 AJ
Felipe Anderson (everton v WEST HAM UNITED)
Hear me out, right. As a manager, Marco Silva’s sides in the Premiership have kept 4 clean sheets from 23 attempts and Everton have conceded in every game so far. Given that Felipe Anderson is clearly West Ham’s brightest player in a shambolic opening, I expect West Ham to create chances with the creator to score.
Marcos Alonso & Eden Hazard (CHELSEA v cardiff city)
Even Arsenal could hit three goals past Cardiff City. Imagine what the free-flowing Chelsea will do after 3 months with Sarri on board. Marcos Alonso has been their best player, in imperious form so far this season and Eden Hazard looks to be enjoying his football a lot more after the Conte experiment.
Harry Kane (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v liverpool)
HurriKane has netted five times against Liverpool and was instrumental in last season’s demolition at Wembley Stadium last October. Since breaking his August duck Kane has been out of sorts, especially against Watford. He’s due to burst into life.
Troy Deeney (WATFORD v manchester united)
Troy Deeney comes alive at Vicarage Road. He netted the winner against Tottenham a couple of weeks ago and has been known to hit a couple against Manchester United down the years and was inspirational to their 3-1 win in September 2016.
Danny Welbeck (newcastle united v ARSENAL)
Danny Welbeck is creeping his way into the Arsenal team and I think he may be handed a start this weekend, fresh start for the fresh prince of north London.
Raheem Sterling (MANCHESTER CITY v fulham)
Manchester City to win this by a canter, though it should be an entertaining game against that Fulham side we all love so much.
Alvaro Morata (CHELSEA v cardiff city)
Alvaro Morata is due a goal against this season’s appointed whipping boys Cardiff. I think it will be another solid performance for Sarri’s men.
Callum Wilson (BOURNEMOUTH v leicester city)
Everyone’s favourite bad boy at the moment after that West Ham goal that was only made possible by Mark Noble lightly jogging rather than tracking back. Expecting the Cherries to edge it against the Foxes with a solitary Wilson goal.
Roberto Pererya (WATFORD v manchester united)
This is the weekend’s big game as Watford take on Man United, overachievers against the underachievers here but Watford and “Daddy Shark” himself will really fancy this one.
