Fantasy Football Tips – Gameweek 20
Hull City’s Tom Huddlestone was the highest point scorer in Gameweek 19, after scoring and grabbing two assists during the Tigers 6-0 rout over Fulham.
Elsewhere wingback Seamus Coleman scored his fifth goal of the season as Everton beat Southampton and Roberto Soldado returned to the Tottenham scoresheet, as Spurs recorded a 3-0 win over Stoke.
Luis Suarez (LIV)
Luis Suarez was denied two strong penalty appeals, as Liverpool suffered a blow to their title ambitions.
The Uruguayan striker has scored an astonishing 18 goals in just 14 appearances for the Reds in the Premier League this season, form that has shot the forward six goals clear of his nearest rival in the goalscoring charts.
Opponents Hull have failed to win any of their last six matches away from home in the league and Suarez looks likely to bring the Tigers down from the heady heights of last weekend’s 6-0 victory on Wednesday.
Theo Walcott (ARS)
Theo Walcott’s free-kick proved to be the perfect ammunition for Olivier Giroud on Sunday, as Arsenal retained their place at the top of the table.
The England international has scored four goals in four games since his return from injury and although a shoulder complaint is present, Walcott looks set to start the match at the Emirates Stadium.
Opponents Cardiff have conceded eight goals in their last three matches in the Premier League and the managerless Bluebirds look set for a long afternoon against Walcott on Wednesday.
Laurent Koscielny (ARS) – £5.3m
Laurent Koscielny’s return to the Gunners line-up proved crucial, as Arsenal shut-out in-form Newcastle.
Koscielny has been ever-present alongside Per Mertesacker in the heart of the Arsenal defence, with the France international remaining the cheapest way to get into Arsenal’s back-line that has recorded a league high of eight clean sheets this season.
Opponents Cardiff have failed to score in over half of their matches away from home and the Premier League leaders look poised to secure another shut-out this week.
Eden Hazard (CHE) – £10.2m
Eden Hazard’s rifled equaliser helped Chelsea record an impressive 2-1 victory over Liverpool last weekend, as the Blues continued to maintain their pace at the top of the table.
The Belgium international’s first half strike leaves the player just one goal short of his tally for last season heading into the New Year, with the former Lille midfielder remaining central to Jose Mourinho’s plans this term.
Opponents Southampton have conceded eight goals in their last four games at St Mary’s Stadium and Chelsea’s joy over the festive period looks set to continue, with Hazard in the spotlight.
