It was another exciting gameweek in the Premier League as goals reigned once again & surprising results arose. Next weekend sees a possibly frustrating International Break so this week will determine the next fornight or so’s FPL outcomes. There was also a change in The Garage Flower league this gameweek. Amanina Sabki sits at the top of the league but closely followed by Ben Brookes and last week’s league leader Bruce Chambers. Lewis Ridley climbed off the bottom which leaves Matthew Chambers and Tom Newton down in the depths, split by just 2 points.
Onto this week, and who you should be bringing in and taking out.
IN: Aaron Mooy – £5.6m
The Australian playmaker showed his class last weekend at home to Newcastle and this week is at home to Southampton. At a decent price, the midfielder could be worth a shot in a tricky gameweek as if Southampton’s midfield performance last weekend is anything to go by, Mooy could be in for another good showing.
The German defender struggled at Stoke last weekend and has recently been involved in strong rumours linking him away from Arsenal. Goals are always a given whenever his side meet his former Merseyside rivals, and Liverpool come hot a big midweek win in which they looked scintillating at times up front. Mustafi may not fair well at Anfield and could a big risk if he’s kept in your team.
IN: Javier Hernández – £7.1m
The Mexican opened his West Ham account with 2 characteristic finishes at St. Mary’s last weekend, and looks as if he is ready to set the league alight once again. His opponents this gameweek, Newcastle, have numerous defensive woes and Chicharito could well pounce at this time St. James’ to continue his goalscoring experts. A lot of people have been talking about him this week as regards to putting him in your team, and at his price, it’s hard to ask why.
Despite impressing at Ajax since he came through the ranks not long ago, his reunion with former manager Frank de Beor has been a worrying one. Hosting a Swansea side who always look dangerous on the attack, the Netherlands youngster isn’t one to put faith in this weekend. Riedewald may be one for the future, but his time adapting to Premier League life has been less promising.
IN: Paul Pogba £8.1m
The Frenchman looks as if he’s finally got it. A price tag that now seems almost a bargain in today market both in real terms and FPL, Pogba is set to play a starring role once more up against Leicester this time out. With United in form, the box-to-box midfielder is set to be a magnificent asset to any team this gameweek. Goals and key passes have flowed from Pogba’s game as of late, which will only rack up the points. His connection to Lukaku could also come in handy; someone who also came up with goods himself after our recommendation last week.
OUT: Danny Drinkwater – £5m
Carrying an injury, Drinkwater is likely to be left out at Old Trafford. His side will have to be careful all match in midfield as they attempt to deal with United. If the Englishman does indeed play, he’ll have his work cut out and could face a very gruelling encounter. He’s one to avoid this week for sure, even if his price tag is tempting for such a consistent player.
