FFB Weekly 5 (#13)

It was a low key weekend for the boys last time out before the November international break as they both notched one out of five, maintaining Jake’s three-goal lead. The most prolific goalscorers in the Premier League in Sergio Aguero and Mo Salah got goals that tied the boys in Week 12.

Week 12: Jake 1-1 AJ

Overall: Jake 21-18 AJ


Jake’s 5

Bernard (EVERTON v cardiff city)

Slightly left-field choice as Everton have better goalscoring options in their ranks through Richarlison and Sigurdsson but I can count on Bernard to slow time down through his watch and steal a goal against a defensively unstable Cardiff team.

Anthony Martial (MANCHESTER UNITED v crystal palace)

This has gone slightly under the radar but Anthony Martial has scored in five successive Premier League games and with an out of form Palace team coming to Old Trafford, there’s a good chance that he’ll extend this record.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FULHAM v southampton)

New manager syndrome. Mitrovic hasn’t got plenty of goals recently for Fulham as they have slumped to the bottom of the league but what better team to face than a goal-shy Southampton at the Cottage. He’s the joint top scorer in the Nations League after goals in the international break.

Callum Wilson (BOURNEMOUTH v arsenal)

Bournemouth have got quite a good record against Arsenal and with their in-form striker, Callum Wilson scoring on his international debut for England last Thursday, his confidence will be up in the sky.

Gini Wijnaldum (watford v LIVERPOOL)

You know when you just get a sneaky feeling about something? Wijnaldum scored in a 2-0 win over France in the Nations League as Netherlands relegated Germany last week and whether he starts or not at Vicarage Road, he’ll be in the goals. My wildcard.


AJ’s 5

Marko Arnautovic (WEST HAM UNITED v manchester city)

If Manchester City are going to concede at the London Stadium, as Manchester United did three times, Marko Arnautovic will be the player to come up with the goal to perhaps shock Man City, or get a scant consolation.

Ruben Neves (WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS v huddersfield town)

Wolves are due a win and what a time and a place to get it than at home to Huddersfield Town. Neves is as due a goal as his team are due a win.

Harry Kane (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v chelsea)

Harry Kane had one, and perhaps he should have had two, against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday and with that qualification to the Nations League finals. He’ll be buoyed by this performance and will take it onto a big top 4 showdown in the Premier League with Chelsea.

Marcus Rashford (MANCHESTER UNITED v crystal palace)

Rashford was unfortunate to come away from the Croatia match without a goal because his performance warranted it. Now, United and Rashford host Palace, one of the league’s struggling sides. A goal is likely.

Alvaro Morata (tottenham hotspur v CHELSEA)

Yes, we’ve all seen that .GIF on Twitter of Morata skewing an open net chance wide of the mark somehow when it was easier to put the goal away. He’s in a slump and with Olivier Giroud poking up his bumhole, he’ll be jolted into scoring at Wembley.
