Oh, how the tables have turned from a few weeks ago in AJ’s phenomenal 4-1 win over Jake. He has since scored a blank and then last week was on the wrong end of a 4-2 thrashing. Marcus Rashford got the boys off to a good start in Saturday’s early kick-off but by Saturday night, two from Felipe Anderson and an equaliser from Alex Lacazette put Jake 3-1 up. Fortunately for AJ, Danny Ings cancelled out Sergio Aguero’s to finish the week at 4-2.
Week 11: Jake 4-2 AJ
Overall: Jake 20-17 AJ
Glenn Murray (cardiff city v BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION)
A free-scoring striker against a hapless Cardiff City side. I just had to, you know? Glenn Murray to score multiple goals in a high-scoring fixture to lift us up tomorrow lunchtime.
Jamie Vardy (LEICESTER CITY v burnley)
Jamie Vardy ran his absolute bollocks off for his club last Saturday after the club’s hardest week in its history. Expect more of the same this weekend but with the goal he fully deserved last weekend.
Callum Wilson (newcastle united v BOURNEMOUTH)
Ever since I put Wilson into my Weekly 5 first time round and he netted, I’ve got the hype about him. Perhaps he’s deserving of an England place now. I’ve got him in the FFB FPL, so a goal would be grand at a ground where the home team don’t do too well.
Sadio Mane & Mo Salah (LIVERPOOL v fulham)
Gone for a Liverpool double at home to Fulham. Fulham, if they are perform to type in their leaky defensive, offensive football character, they’ll be punished. Mane and Salah were wasteful in front of goal last week and they can afford to be here and still nab hat-tricks.
Sergio Aguero (MANCHESTER CITY v manchester united)
Despite Gabriel Jesus’ bizarre hat-trick in midweek against Shakhtar, expect Sergio Aguero to return to the side and score the token goal he always seems to get against Manchester United.
Richarlison (chelsea v EVERTON)
Everton look a more complete team nowadays and under Marco Silva’s stewardship, Richarlison retains a tag as one of the more exciting attackers in the league as well as being a proficient goalscorer. Having gone to Belarus and back, Chelsea will tire.
Danny Ings (SOUTHAMPTON v watford)
Southampton don’t score often but when they do it’s usually Danny Ings. He got a goal for me last week, is he the new Big Cenk? I don’t know but he’ll be amongst the goals at home to Watford tomorrow afternoon.
Harry Kane (crystal palace v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR)
Kane dug Spurs out of a hole with two goals in midweek against PSV Eindhoven to scrape a win at Wembley despite not playing all that well. Palace are hit and miss, having only recorded wins over Fulham and Huddersfield so expect Kane to be hitting the net.
Marko Arnautovic (huddersfield town v WEST HAM UNITED)
Huddersfield have been dire this season and with West Ham coming off the back of a win that featured four goals, one from Arnautovic himself, they’ll be expecting another win at a ground where they claimed four goals last season.
