FFB Weekly 5 (#6)

It was another stalemate this weekend for the boys as Jake notched his point up thanks to Eden Hazard’s superb display against Cardiff City, a hat-trick against the Bluebirds. AJ plumped for Raheem Sterling who scored in a similar rout of Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

Week 5 Score: Jake 1-1 AJ

Overall Score: Jake 8-8 AJ


Jake’s Picks

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FULHAM v watford)

Fulham need to rebound after last weekend’s humiliation at the Etihad Stadium and expect Mitrovic to be there or thereabouts if there are goals at Craven Cottage. Watford notoriously don’t start games well and Fulham have been good at home so expect a goal or two from the league’s joint second highest goalscorer.

Wilfried Zaha (CRYSTAL PALACE v newcastle united)

Is there anything Zaha cannot do for Palace? He rattled through the Huddersfield defence last weekend like a hot knife through butter. Think of what he can do against an abject-of-late Newcastle side.

Jamie Vardy (LEICESTER CITY v huddersfield town)

Huddersfield look down and out. Jamie Vardy is back from suspension and will be hungry for goals that he missed out on in the matches at home Liverpool and at Bournemouth.

Olivier Giroud (west ham united v CHELSEA)

West Ham got their first win (and points in fact) last week at Goodison Park. They cannot buy a win at the London Stadium and the free scoring, free flowing Chelsea team under Maurizio Sarri, will feel confident in slaying Pellegrini’s Hammers. Olivier Giroud could have a field day against the wobbly central defence of West Ham.

Sergio Aguero (cardiff city v MANCHESTER CITY)

This is going to be a rout. This is going to be a pure snuff film, thank god Sky and BT had the decency not to show this live on television. I could have selected five scorers here and be fairly confident to get a full house. Instead, I’ve plumped for one City player, to hedge my bets, and it goes to a man in form Sergio Aguero.

AJ’s Picks

Ryan Sessegnon (FULHAM v watford)

It’s about time that Ryan Sessegnon made his Premier League impact for the Cottagers after being shelved in recent weeks in place of Luciano Vietto.

Bernardo Silva (cardiff city v MANCHESTER CITY)

This man is racking up the goals at the moment. Another one in midweek where he could’ve had a couple and I expect the midfield to dominate at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Paul Pogba (MANCHESTER UNITED v wolverhampton wanderers)

Pogboom is on fire at the moment, two in midweek in Switzerland, he’s started where he left off at the World Cup – in imperious form.

Glenn Murray (BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION v tottenham hotspur)

Tottenham’s woes from last week’s defeat at home to Liverpool lapsed into a poor collapse at the San Siro on Tuesday night. The games don’t come easy, away at the AMEX and with an in-form Glenn Murray, Vertonghen and Alderweireld will have problems on the south coast.

Ruben Neves (manchester united  v WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS)

Ruben Neves, despite being a young pup is the big man for the big game situations and there’s not too many bigger occasions than at Old Trafford. In his short Wolves career he has had six touches in the opposition box but all seven of his goals have come from outside the box.
