Everton’s Romelu Lukaku & The 5 #FPL Players You MUST Pick This Week
DEFENDER: Toby Alderweireld – £4.7m (Home v Burnley)
Having returned to the Southampton defence for the first time in seven league games in the draw at Chelsea, Belgian international Toby Alderweireld will be targeting an injury-free run to the end of his first campaign in English football.
When fit he’s been a crucial element of the Saints’ back-line, and he’ll be confident of a clean sheet in a must-win match at home to struggling Burnley.
MIDFIELDER: Christian Eriksen – £8.4m (Home v Leicester)
They might have been royally put in their place by Manchester United, but Tottenham are about to embark on a kind run of games which are likely to determine whether or not a top four finish is really attainable.
The Dane Christian Eriksen will be crucial in that quest for points, and if he can get his team ticking at home to Leicester then there could be a few points heading your way too.
FORWARD: Romelu Lukaku – £8.8m (Away v QPR)
Barring any upsets in Europe, Romelu Lukaku is likely to approach Everton’s trip to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday in good heart.
He scored and assisted in the win over Newcastle, has good form in the Europa league and will be up against a QPR defence which seems to be holding weekly tributes to very worst defensive setups we’ve ever seen in the Premier League. What isn’t there to be confident about?!
THE OUTSIDER: Christian Benteke – £7.4m (Home v Swansea)
All of a sudden Aston Villa seem upwardly mobile, and key to all of that is the forward Christian Benteke.
Lacking fitness and seemingly lacking belief for much of the campaign, the big Belgian has now scored three times in his last two games, and will be eyeing up the weekend meeting with Swansea City as a chance for more.
THE CAPTAIN: Harry Kane – £6.3m (Home v Leicester)
Chelsea look tired and Manchester City can’t exactly be trusted even at home to West Brom, so Harry Kane could well ride to the rescue for many as the Spurs striker attempts to continue his remarkable season at home to Leicester.
The forward has scored six times in his last seven home appearances in the Premier League during this season’s ascent to stardom, and he can improve that record by hunting down the Foxes.
