EVERTON’S LUKAKU ATE MY DEFENDER… Gameweek Preview

Everton, Arsenal or Spurs for Captaincy Selection Dilemma?

Everton’s Romelu Lukaku & The 5 #FPL Players You MUST Pick This Week

Gameweek 30

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.

DEFENCE: John Stones, Everton – £5.4m (Home v Crystal Palace)

After conceding eight goals at home to both Arsenal and Chelsea, Everton boss Roberto Martinez appears to have discovered the secret to keeping things tight at the back, and it’s John Stones.

The young defender returned to the side at West Brom last weekend, and subsequently helped his side register a clean sheet for which he was also awarded two bonus points. Everton face a couple of tough fixtures after Palace at home, but Sunday should guarantee points.

 

MIDFIELD: Christian Eriksen, Tottenham – £7.9m (Home v West Brom)

Tottenham’s Great Dane grabbed his first goal of the season and three bonus points in the draw at Sunderland, and providing he comes through the Europa League trip to Belgrade unharmed (and perhaps unused) then he should sparkle against a poor West Brom side.

On his day Eriksen can be a devastating attacking talent, and you’d have thought that he’ll get the chance to demonstrate his abilities against one of the weaker outfits in the division.

FORWARD: Graziano Pelle, Southampton – £7.6 (Away v Swansea)

Last week’s tip-off that the Italian forward would shine didn’t turn out to be such a bad one, and after his two goals against Newcastle the frontman will have Swansea in his sights.

Pelle looks to be a forward who’ll go on little goalscoring runs rather than be a prolific hitman, and so back him to shine just as Swansea’s good start to the season gets a little trickier.

 

THE OUTSIDER: Ander Herrera, Manchester United – £7.3m (Away v Leicester)

Goals from the centre of midfield are something that Manchester United haven’t had for a while now, and although Ander Herrera’s strike in the win over QPR won’t be the beginning of a prolific run for the Spaniard, it will at least give him confidence.

Herrera is one of the less celebrated of United’s new arrivals, but creativity from midfield could be crucial in a tricky looking contest at Leicester.

 

THE CAPTAIN: Romelu Lukaku, Everton – £9.0m (Home v Crystal Palace)

With Manchester City facing Chelsea and Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United all being given tough away games, it could pay to put your trust is Everton’s Belgian battering ram for their clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Wait and see what happens in the Blues’ Europa League clash with Wolfsburg first (and then pick one of the usual suspects if the worst occurs), but after his goal at West Brom last weekend Lukaku is up and running for the season, and when’s he’s on form there are few better in the division.

GW34 Preview: Everton pair can make your Double Gameweek a breeze

alcaraz-hails-stones-Image

It’s a bit of a stealth Double Gameweek, this.

Because of the FA Cup semi-finals, two teams don’t play at all, whilst of the four who play twice, one are away to the current league leaders and two of the others have spent all of their season in the lower reaches of the table. One of them is currently rock bottom.

All of which leads you to one team this week, and luckily they are a team bang in form.

Everton know that over the next week they can cement their claims for a top four finish and Champions League football next season.

Following their sixth win in a row against Arsenal last weekend, Roberto Martinez’s Blues now go to a slumping Sunderland before following that up with a home game against a carefree Crystal Palace who are pretty much assured of their Premier League status for next season.

Because of the opportunity for Everton goals, the eyes are immediately drawn to forward Romelu Lukaku (£9.0m), who is sure to see his ownership rate rise over the coming days.

The Belgian recorded a double figure points score for the fourth time this season and the second time in three games in the demolition of the Gunners, and wherever he ends up playing next season the on-loan Chelsea man appears determined to shoot Everton into the top four during this one.

Lukaku has received strong attacking support from the likes of Steven Naismith (£4.6m) and Kevin Mirallas (£7.6m) in recent weeks, but the Blues’ defence also deserves some attention given that they are facing two of the lowest scorers in the division.

Everyone knows about how well Seamus Coleman (£6.9m) has done this season, but his young teammate John Stones (£4.1m) has come into the team in the last six matches, and it’s no coincidence that Everton have won all of those games.

Stones has been excellent since coming in for the injured Phil Jagielka, and this week it could pay to partner him with Coleman in your defence as the Blues look to keep things tight at the back.

Of the other teams facing Double Gameweeks, Manchester City head into what is surely the match of the season against Liverpool on Sunday and then follow that up with the much more winnable contest at home to Sunderland.

The Anfield meeting will of course be on a knife edge, and whilst you really can’t confidently predict which way it will go, the opportunity of some extra points for City players before they go into the Sunderland game means that they really can’t be ignored.

David Silva (£9.5m) has been excellent since moving into the No. 10 position behind the main striker, usually Edin Dzeko (£7.2m), but after his goal against Southampton it is perhaps Samir Nasri (£8.2m) who warrants the most attention.

The Frenchman will be a key goal threat at Anfield, and will also fancy his chances of impressing against Sunderland, a match which – like Everton v Crystal Palace – takes place now after it was postponed due to high winds in February.

Elsewhere, the big relegation battle between Fulham and Norwich at Craven Cottage could see Steve Sidwell (£5.3m) impress for the home side, whilst Stoke City look like being the latest team to profit from the fact that Newcastle United appear to have packed up for the season. Marko Arnautovic (£5.1m) and Peter Odemwingie (£5.4m) could impress at the Britannia Stadium.

West Brom’s Morgan Amalfitano (£4.2m) has rediscovered some of his early season form in the past few weeks and he could be worth a gamble as the Baggies host Tottenham, whilst after he returned from the bench in dismal circumstances at Goodison Park last Sunday, Arsenal could give Aaron Ramsey (£6.9m) a start in their match against West Ham.
