What an incredible round of fixtures took place in midweek in the English Premier League. A couple of 3-3 draws and a rather brilliant away performance from Sunderland to defeat Swansea 4-2 were the highlights of the round of fixtures.
Also the performance of Leicester, who won away at Tottenham, cannot be ignored, Claudio Ranieri’s side just does not know when to lie down and they should be challenging for a top four spot for sure come the end of the season.
The 22nd week of the Premier League looks to be just as great with the big game between Liverpool and Manchester United. For all Fantasy Premier League players, Roberto Firmino and Wayne Rooney would have fetched quite a good number of points this time but what are the players who should be on their team in the next round?
Here are some tips as to who could well be getting you those precious points in the weekend.
The Argentine might not have gotten on the score sheet against Everton in the last game but it is only a matter of time before he scores again and it could be against Crystal Palace at home. Palace surprisingly lost at Aston Villa and continued a wretched run of form. They could be in for a hammering at the Etihad and Sergio Aguero could be the one who leads the rout.
The former Spurs player scored a hat-trick in Sunderland’s 4-2 win over Swansea and it could be his form which saves Sunderland from relegation. The team now travel to face Defoe’s old side Tottenham and with Spurs losing 1-0 to Leicester, it could be Defoe who comes back to haunt his ex-side.
Ighalo is now on a massive barren spell, well we are kidding of course, he just hasn’t scored in the last two games but he could well be looking to break his duck when his team takes on Swansea City. The Swans are bereft of confidence or even of a decent defence and it could be the physicality and movement of Ighalo and Deeney that could make the Swans pay.
The Hammer missed out on seven games but made a brief return against Liverpool before picking up the slack and providing an assist and a goal in the win over Bournemouth. Payet has picked up just where he left off and with a game coming up against Newcastle he could well be the one who provides that killer ball or telling pass as West Ham look to get one over Newcastle.
While the Brazilian hasn’t shown what he can do day in day out, he has been one of the best players for Liverpool in their big league games. Firmino was excellent against Arsenal, as he was against Chelsea and Manchester City earlier in the season and with a crunch tie coming up against eternal rivals Manchester United, it could be time for some more Brazilian magic at Anfield.
