I’ve previously started off boring readers by listing out the fixtures in the gameweek. Not anymore, I’m diving in, giving you three players who could help you out with your dream teams and a fixture that catches my eye.
We kick start gameweeek 11 at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea host Liverpool, in what could potentially be a feisty encounter as Chelsea look to get their season back on track. It’s worth remembering they beat Arsenal the dirty way with Diego Costa in the thick of it and they could do the same to Jurgen Klopp’s red men who are yet to win in the League under the German. Transferring in players from either team should be approached with caution as this fixture produced 7 yellow cards last season and a red card at 12:45 wouldn’t be a surprise.
Ones To Watch
Christian Eriksen- The man who makes this spurs side with top 4 targets, click! They’ve got off to a decent start this season, unbeaten in their last 9 games, winning 4, drawing 5 and home to Aston Villa on Monday night football could be the game to help spurs gather momentum. The Danish midfield playmaker is a likely set piece candidate who has scored 2 goals and assisting 4 so far. Without a manager at the helm, the Villains have only registered 1 win on their travels, conceding 10 and their problems could mount if Spurs find their way. Strong candidate for captain.
Sadio Mané- Despite picking up a red card at Anfield he’s in contention to start against a Bournemouth team with key players injured. The cherries away form doesn’t provide good reading either conceding 14, winning only 1. Mané could be the man who makes life worst for the newly promoted side, heavily influential for the Saints this season, directly involved in 7 goals in his last 7 games scoring 3 and assisting 4. A silky player who carries the ball well, with a keen eye for the pass that splits the defence, he will have target man Pelle to link up with to help his team bag a few goals on Super Sunday. An attacking outlet who always has the ability to change a game.
Alexis Sánchez- From the eyes of Arsenal fans the vastly talented Chilean can do no wrong and let’s face it what has he? A slow start to the season which exploded when he fired a hatrick against the foxes, he’s gone from strength to strength since. On his day he looks the best player on the pitch by a mile however Swansea is no easy task for the gunners, recording their last victory against the Swans on 23/09/13. If the talks of “it could be Arsenal’s year” want to become louder this is a fixture they’ll need to be at their best and Sánchez will of course hold the key. Already scoring 6 goals he’s a man that can grab the game by the scruff of the neck and take charge as evident from his fine display against United.
