On each podcast, we normally run through a list of picks for the upcoming gameweek. This being an off week decided to publish our picks.
Look out for a new podcast this coming Wednesday.
Darryl “2cents” Celestine
Captain – Robin Van Persie
Cheap Pick – Adel Taarabt
Clean Sheet – Manchester City
Fixture to Watch – Chelsea vs Newcastle – Newcastle got in alot of new French players at favorable FPL prices in the transfer window so I’m looking to see how they settle into the lineup. Also, Papiss Cisse is the undisputed number one striker with Ba’s departure so I want to see how he looks as an option since Newcastle have a good run of fixtures to come in the near future. In terms of Chelsea, Torres got the start against Reading so I want to see if Ba gets the call against his old club and how he performs.
Omar “dinho” Romero
Captain – Theo Walcott
Cheap Pick – Victor Anichebe
Clean Sheet – Everton
Fixture to Watch – Wigan vs Southampton – This is a critical fixture for both teams as they are both hovering around the relegation zone and will be looking for maximum points here. Southampton played well against Man Utd and had them on the ropes, so it looks like they have been unaffected by a change of manager. Want to see how Lambert, Puncheon and co fare here. On the other hand, Wigan did well to claw back a point away at Stoke and have shown they have goals in them even if they leak alot at the back. Want to see how the likes of Maloney, Di Santo and new signing Roger Espinoza perform here.
