After an embarrassing 66 point Fantrax performance in Game Week 1, I will be looking to bounce back behind Harry Kane & Co. at home against Crystal Palace. The Hotspurs were initially dominated by a much improved Everton side, but came back strong in second half to claim a point and even could have won, had it not been for Maarten Stekelenburg heroics. The new lad, Vincent Janssen impressed and should line-up along Harry Kane, which would hopefully allow Kane to play closer to the goal and not take on multiple defenders at one time.
I did not buy into the Manchester United performance against Bournemouth last week by bringing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Wayne Rooney against Southampton, and it back fired. Looks like the duo is working well together and United could be a real title contender this season. Away at Hull in Game Week 3 is a tasty option.
Another team to be on a lookout for throughout the season is the aforementioned Everton. Ronald Koeman has the Toffees playing very attractive football, and with offensive firepower like Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Mirallas, Gerard Deulofeu, Ross Barkley and the newly acquired Yannick Bolasie, there will be goals scored by the team from Liverpool.
Speaking of Liverpool, if Jurgen Klopp can improve his team defensively, a top 6 finish is not out of the question. The jury is still out on Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Leicester City, as none of the above particularly impressed in GW 1.
My Fantrax team is as follows:
Targett / Kingsley / Rose
Barkley / Alli / Ramirez / Sigurdsson / Wijnaldum
Carroll / Kane
Who you got? Let's chat.
