Swansea’s Wilfried Bony and the 5 #FPL Players You MUST Pick This Week
DEFENCE: Kieran Gibbs – £5.3m (Away v Sunderland)
Fresh from the confidence boost of getting a nice goal in the Champions League, Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs should be backed to have a good game as the Gunners go to a Sunderland side still reeling from their hammering at Southampton.
Of course they’ll be desperate to recover following such a high-profile defeat but the Gunners should be good enough to get the better of them, and given that Gibbs is in my team it’s a surprise to me that his ownership rate is so low.
MIDFIELD: Gylfi Sigurdsson – £6.8m (Home v Leicester)
These are the sort of games in which the Icelander has been cleaning up all season, and although he hasn’t managed a goal since the opening day of the season you get the feeling that he’ll get a few chances against Leicester, a match in which Garry Monk will be desperate to win.
He could also add to six assists this season, too.
FORWARD: Romelu Lukaku – £9.0 (Away v Everton)
Burnley continue to struggle, and they won’t be looking forward to the visit of a player who got back in the groove with a goal against Aston Villa last week.
Romelu Lukaku hasn’t been at his best for the majority of this season but when he’s on his game there are few better strikers in the division, and he’ll be ready to trouble the Clarets at Turf Moor.
THE OUTSIDER (a player with less than 5% ownership): Wilfried Bony – £8.2m (Home v Leicester)
As you might be able to tell, I quite fancy Swansea to beat Leicester on Saturday, and after a slow start to his season I think it’s about time Wilfried Bony got going and showed his importance to the Swans side.
The Ivorian scored a penalty against Stoke last time out and he’ll fancy his chances against the Foxes.
THE CAPTAIN: Sergio Aguero – £12.4m (Away v West Ham)
There’s no Diego Costa, but the smart ones amongst you would have picked Sergio Aguero as skipper for the Spurs clash last week and should follow suit for City’s trip to West Ham.
The Argentinean is, on his day, the best player in the Premier League and he can prove that again at Upton Park.
