Egypt Week 25 Player Picks

New, comments

Finally the midweek games are back with some very tasty fixtures including the big game between Liverpool and Tottenham , Will the Reds get the win they need and get back to the race for the Champions league spots or will Spurs continue their impressive form and get a much needed win at Anfield.

So let's take a look about my recommendation for this week, The obvious strategy this week is fill up your team with Arsenal and Man United players as they got the easiest fixture for this week.

Strikers

Olivier Giroud : The Arsenal striker will fancy his chances against the Foxes and if you are buying from scratch and don't have Alexis Sanchez in your team then Giroud would be a good option for you this week.

Radamel Falcao/RVP : Both of them are struggling in front of goal recently but will fancy their chances against Burnley, The only downside in picking one of them that one of them might get rested or rotated for this week so it's your call here but I am staying away.

Jermain Defoe: A must pick for this week playing against the miserable QPR side who always concede and lose away from home, He scored in his last 2 games and he will score in this one for sure.

Loic Remy : He was dropped last week but should start this one against Everton, He got an eye for goal and will get plenty of chances in this game.

Sergio Aguero : Oh Sergio! What happened to you? He has been so poor recently but this will be his week where he finally breaks his duck and start scoring again, Mark my words :)

Saido Berahino : I like him a lot as a player but his attitude has been poor recently, If you want a mid range striker for this week then Berahino should be your man.

Midfielders

Jason Puncheon : He has been in top form recently and he loves playing at home, He is also on set pieces duties and I expect a big score from him this week.

Adam Johsnon : Another player who got rested on Saturday and will be fired up for the game against QPR , Anyone should fancy his chances when playing against QPR and he is a very interesting pick for this week.

Angel Di Maria : I already dropped him 2 weeks ago and he has been performing so poorly but you never know with Di Maria, This might be the game where he comes back to form and score big points.

Carles Gil : You should have grabbed this guy last week when he was priced @2, I had him last week against Chelsea and he scored 10 pts, He is on set pieces and will score points regularly and will fancy his chances against Hull City.

Cesc Fabregas : Finally his back after a 2 week injury layoff, He is on set pieces and very crucial to Chelsea style of play, I expect an assist or two from him this week.

Aaron Ramsey : Priced reasonably well and playing against the Foxes, Will Ramsey start his scoring streak this week? Big chance he will do it this week.

Defenders

Marcos Rojo : Looks like a guaranteed starter as he could shift to left back with Luke Shaw suspended or can play alongside Phil Jones in the heart of the United defense.

Kurt Zouma : He got dropped last week against Villa but I do think he will start this one as he got the pace to cope with Lukaku, He is also priced under 4 so that is a bargain for a Chelsea defender.

Kieran Gibbs : I know it might be a bit risky picking him but I do think he will start this one and he is priced under 8 which makes him a very interesting option, He likes to bombard forward and can score big points this week.

Vincent Kompany : I don't think Stoke will score in this game so I fancy Kompany to get the clean sheet and some defending points.

Patrick Van Aanholt : The Sunderland left back loves going forward and loves playing at home, He will score plenty of attacking points in this game and he might get the clean sheet as well.

Goalkeepers

Thibaut Courtois : A very promising clean sheet waiting him as Everton have been awful in front of goal recently, So I expect a clean sheet from Chelsea this week.

Allan McGregor: If you picked him @2 then he can be a good option this week playing against the very very shy Aston Villa team who rarely scores away from home.

David Ospina : Another safe bet this week would be this guy, He has been very good in recent weeks and should continue between the sticks for the visit of Leicester City.

I hope my player picks can help you this week and hopefully a big scoring week for us.

I am currently on Courtois, Ivanovic, Rojo, Okore, Coutinho, Fabregas, Puncheon, Adam Johnson, Defoe, Giroud, Aguero

Bench : Robles, Targett, Creswell,Gil

Good luck
