FFB Weekly 5 (#8)

There was a glut of goals last Saturday at 3pm that helped the boys to four goals. Jake secured two points through Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling’s early goals whilst Jamie Vardy and, perhaps more notably, BIG CENK TOSUN netted for AJ. The late Saturday kick-off between Chelsea and Liverpool saw four of the week’s ten picks go head-to-head: Willian, Eden Hazard and Mo Salah (x2). Hazard scored to clinch the weekend for Jake, again.

Week 7 Score: Jake 3-2 AJ

Overall Score: Jake 14-11 AJ


Jake’s 5

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FULHAM v arsenal)

A big trip on Thursday to Azerbaijan will not do Arsenal any good, especially hosting Fulham three days later on Sunday afternoon. Mitro is bang in form and Arsenal’s defence isn’t the best.

Harry Kane (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v cardiff city)

Perhaps the deadliest finisher in the Premier League against arguably the worst team in the Premier League at Wembley. There’s only one outcome here, surely, and it’s why I have a triple captain on the big number 9 up top for Spurs.

Wilfried Zaha (CRYSTAL PALACE v wolverhampton wanderers)

Palace’s kingpin. He’s not scored in a couple of weeks and always seems to turn it on in front of the Selhurst Park faithful. Despite full-backs Doherty and Jonny being in good form for Wolves, Zaha’s possibly in a league of his own at cutting in with pace and terrorising defenders.

Marko Arnautovic (brighton & hove albion v WEST HAM UNITED)

Since that dramatic 3-2 win over Manchester United in August, Brighton have fallen slightly by the wayside and with West Ham coming to the fore after their own win over Man Utd, Arnautovic will be wanting a goal of his own after hitting 2 in the last 3 league games.

Jamie Vardy (LEICESTER CITY v everton)

Everton under Marco Silva looked to have stuttered until their bashing of Fulham last weekend whilst Claude Puel’s Leicester can’t buy a compliment in the league. Jamie Vardy has been in good form, with James Maddison behind him.


AJ’s 5

James Maddison (LEICESTER CITY v everton)

James Maddison will be high on the England call-up he received in the week and will improve on his already superb form at home to Everton, after taking the big leap from Norwich City of the Championship to Leicester of the Premiership.

Marcus Rashford (MANCHESTER UNITED v newcastle united)

Rashford reinforced the fact that he should be starting a lot more than the mere 3 games he has done so far with a good performance in midweek at home to Valencia. With Newcastle looking to sit deep at Old Trafford, Rashford could get some joy.

Sergio Aguero (liverpool v MANCHESTER CITY)

Aguero is simply the most in-form attacker in the Premier League so he should score one of those legendary tap-ins at Anfield this weekend.

Harry Kane (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v cardiff city)

What got lost in the Lionel Messi love-in at Wembley on Wednesday was the decent goal from Harry Kane and after two last week in Huddersfield, he’s picked up some form. And, you know, gotta cancel Jake out somewhere.

Wilfried Zaha (CRYSTAL PALACE v wolverhampton wanderers)

Speaking of cancelling Jake out somewhere, I have done here. Zaha is Palace’s clear and obvious focal point. He likes the attention post-interview at the John Smith’s Stadium a couple of weeks ago. He’ll thrive under it here and will score a similarly wonderful goal at home to Wolves.
