EGYPT week 31 player picks

Finally we got a double week and it should be a cracking one with lots and lots of points,This week should be your chance to get close to your friends in your private league and your chance to improve your overall ranking worldwide.

Pick one of us this week !
Pick one of us this week !

The most important tactic in the double week is to pick players who should play 180 minutes, There is no point putting a player with a doubt about his starting place so my recommendation is to put the guaranteed starters and possibly the players on set piece and penalty duties.


Sturridge/Suarez : Both should be in your team without a doubt , If you want to risk a bit then you might think about Captaining Sturridge and hope that Suarez have a quiet game as 99% of players will have Suarez as captain,Its your choice here but for me I will keep it safe and Suarez remains captain.

Carroll : Big Andy scored last week and if you grabbed him @4.9 then he should be in your team,He is playing two home games and can easily score in both games, Its also between him and Mark Noble for the Penalty kick duties so he is worth a shout this week.

Luke De Jong : The Newcastle striker loves the early shot and he got two winnable home games, I expect him to score in one of the games this week.

Lukaku : As usual all of us picked him last week and he didn't score, This week should be vice versa and can score a couple, I lost count about how many times I picked him and he didn't score and I am sure all people feeling the same pain.

Oliver Giroud : I just got a feeling that he will score this week, I know that he is playing away to Chelsea but he also got a good game against Swansea on Tuesday, I can see him scoring in one of the 2 games.


David Silva/Yaya Toure : I am going with Silva this week as he looks in red hot form and also on some set pieces, Yaya had a quiet game last week but remember that he will be on Penalty kick duties,I expect City to beat Fulham comfortably and one of them will be among the goals for the 2nd game which is away to United..

Mark Noble/Kevin Nolan : Noble looks to be on set pieces duties and might be on penalty duties as well while Kevin Nolan is playing in the hole and should get lots of opportunities in both games, Its your decision here but you should pick one of them this week.

Sterling/Henderson/Gerrard: The Liverpool Midfielders are on fire and one of those players should be in your lineup, Liverpool got two winnable games and they should get lots of opportunities getting forward.

Cazorla/Ox : I like the Cazorla pick this week, His price @15.8 and on set pieces and can easily get you 10 points every week without scoring a goal,I am hoping for a big score from Santi this week. OX been solid but there is always the small chance that he might get dropped for whatever reason so if you got cash to burn then Santi should be your man.

El Mohammady/Huddlestone : They are two solid picks this week and I expect both of them to score over 15+ points in this double week.


Paul Dummet : The Newcastle left back is on all set pieces duties for his team and that should be enough for you to consider picking him for this week.

Liverpool Defenders : I am going with Glen Johnson for this week but you can also choose anyone from Flannagan,Skrtel and Agger, I do think that Liverpool will have the same back 4 in both games.

Baines : There is always a chance for a penalty or a set piece in two games and Mr Baines is one of the guys that can rack up points in a double week so easily.

Demichelis : The Big Argentinian should play in both games and I expect him to have a clean sheet against Fulham and if you are bit lucky then he can score with a header.

Koscielny/Mertesacker : The price is way too high but both guys are scoring points for fun, The Chelsea game can bring lots of blocks and Interceptions and the Swansea game should bring the Clean sheet points.

Goal Keepers

Mignolet : The obvious choice this week,2 winnable game and a big chance for two clean sheets

McGregor : Priced @2.72 is such a bargain, His games aren't the best but if you want to spend your money on other positions then McGregor can be your man.

Tim Krul : Another keeper with two home games and priced @6.95, I expect Newcastle to bounce back from their loss against Fulham and keep at least one clean sheet this week.

I am currently on Mignolet/Demichelis/Johsnon/Dummet/Cazorla/Sissoko/Silva/Noble/Carroll/Sturridge/Suarez (c)

Good luck!
