Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Michail Antonio could shine for the host side. West Ham United were top of attacking stats in the first week versus Newcastle. He had ten goals and five assists last season. The Englishman has started the new campaign with a bang with a goal and two assists in the first game.

James Maddison pulls the strings for Leicester City. He should shrug off any injury concerns and start this game. The midfielder supplied eight goals and seven assists last season. He is also on some set-pieces.

Differential Pick

Tomas Soucek was one of the best signings of last season. The Czech international is a beast in the air and very dangerous from set pieces. He had ten goals from open play last year as well as two assists. He has already opened his account for this season with a header in the previous game.

Goalkeeper – K Schmeichel
Defenders – A Cresswell, R Pereira, V Coufal

Likely Winner:
