Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla and the 5 FPL Players You MUST Pick For GW18
DEFENDER: John Terry – £6.3m (Home v West Ham)
Mr Chelsea grabbed his first league goal of the season in the win over Stoke on Monday night, and he’ll again be leading from the back when West Ham come calling to Stamford Bridge for the Boxing Day London derby.
Both the Hammers and Andy Carroll are in fine form, but you’d be foolish to back against a home win and Terry playing a key role within it.
MIDFIELDER: Santi Cazorla – £8.1m (Home v QPR)
Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla has three goals and three assists this season, but five of those moments came in his last five games to make him a man in fine form.
The Spaniard has played the full 90 minutes in nine of the Gunners’ last 10 games, becoming an increasingly important part of Arsene Wenger’s side. Team selections over the Christmas period are always tough to predict, but you have to think he’ll be a starter against QPR.
FORWARD: Olivier Giroud – £8.3m (Home v QPR)
The QPR clash is also exactly the type of game in which Olivier Giroud has been shining in for Arsenal in recent years.
The Frenchman has quickly bounced back into form following his broken leg earlier in the season, with his goal at Anfield making it three strikes in two games. More could come on Boxing Day.
THE OUTSIDER: Adam Lallana – £8.3m (Away v Burnley)
It’s been a while which any Liverpool player appeared in one of these previews, but there are a couple of signs that the Reds have begun to find their attacking form in recent weeks, and even more that Adam Lallana is central to that.
The midfielder grabbed an assist for Martin Skrtel’S late equaliser against Arsenal, and over a festive run of fixtures which gives them a chance to get back in touch with the top four, Liverpool are likely to be relying on him.
THE CAPTAIN: Diego Costa – £11.2m (Home v West Ham)
Is this a week to roll the dice or to go with the tried and tested?
Logic dictates that Diego Costa will be due a goal-filled game soon, and whilst concerns over his fitness have to remain, you can see him grabbing a couple of strikes at home to West Ham.
