Sunday 30th August
Arsenal kicks us off in the early fixture (where alert Fantrax managers have just beaten Pep roulette). After having blanked in his first two fixtures, Arteta will be desperate to get a result against his former employer. The hapless Gunners are in the unfortunate company of Burnley, Newcastle, Norwich and Wolves where cynics may start to talk about an upcoming relegation battle with one more loss.
The big news of the weekend will be Cristiano Ronaldo’s immanent return to Manchester United, having left the club back in 2009. This is dominating Fantasy conversations, as we try and guess the price in FPL and drool like idiots when we dream of its default new-boy price. This game-week will come too soon, but this won’t detract from CR7 being a popular talking-point!
A few things to keep an eye on:
- Harry Kane’s first League start — Will he score big against Watford?
- Will Liverpool’s defense cope with Chelsea’s Lukaku?
- Will Michail Antonio repay the faith of his many new fantasy managers?
- Will Odegaard and Sancho get their first starts?
