It will come as no surprise that in terms of ownership, Michu is the most popular Swansea player on show tonight with 14.5% . Swansea’s impressive 2012/13 campaign however has meant that he is not alone though with both Hernandez (10.6%) and Williams (10.1%) boasting double figure ownership. With the line ups now revealed it will be a big disappointment to many that Hernandez fails to make the squad.
Bony arrived in the summer with an excellent scoring ratio at his previous club and early indications suggest he certainly has the potential for goals especially given the creative players alongside him. A 6.4% ownership level at this stage will only continue to increase if he can get amongst the goals this evening against a Liverpool defence which has yet to concede this season in the league.
The absence of Luis Suarez has been offset slightly by the strong start to the season Liverpool have had. Three consecutive 1-0 victories have shown a more resolute Liverpool team in Rodgers 2nd season in charge. From a Fantasy perspective Liverpool boast one of the most popular picks across the whole of the league in Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. A massive 39.8% of the 2.9million players have Liverpool’s new signing between the post and after 3 clean sheets to start the season with it’s easy to see why.
Elsewhere Daniel Sturridge might not be 100% fit but he has scored 100% of Liverpool’s league goals so far this season. There were rumours coming into this game that he still isn’t at full fitness yet, however this hasn’t deterred him from the 3 goals in 3 games he has so far. More than 1 in 5 teams boast (22.2%) the Liverpool striker in their ranks.
Elsewhere players of interest for this evenings game include Enrique (11.7%) and Coutinho (18.1%) however it is club captain Gerrard (7.2%) who we are tipping for a top performance this evening in what will be his 400th game for Liverpool as Captain – sensational achievement!
