Bournemouth @ Liverpool

There is a lot of value in the Liverpool-Bournemouth game. I think the most important players to target are:

  • Roberto Firmino – 1.7 x value
  • Joshua King – 1.7 x value

Listen, I know Liverpool is going to win, and I would expect a goal from Firmino as they have conceded 1.76 goals per game so far. But With Callum Wilson questionable to play, I think Joshua King presents a good long play value as far as shots go. Who knows, he could even score.

For Firmino, I think his 17 exp. points is low. As I said earlier, Bournemouth has conceded more goals than almost all of the teams below them that aren’t in the relegation zone. I expect Firmino to score tomorrow.

Arsenal @ Huddersfield

Easy play here. Huddersfield lies a distant 20th place and Arsenal has been out of form, meaning some Arsenal players’ salaries has slipped so you can get decent value out of the following players:

  • Laurent Koscielny – 3.6 x value (GTD Illness)
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 1.7 x value

Monitor the Koscielny situation because I think there is a good chance he doesn’t play. However, If he does, having scored in the last two games he has great value as a defender. Again, don’t set a lineup expecting him to play, but as a last minute addition if you are on top of news you could sneak in a player who has a very low play percentage.

Aubameyang is an easy start. Although his salary is 12 000 you should try to fit him into lineups as he has upside of 70 points or more. Cardiff is as bad as you think, start Aubameyang…

Player to Avoid

  • Wilfried Zaha – 1.65 x value

If you watched the West Ham/Manchester City game this week, you know where this is coming from. Against an amazing Manchester City side, Lukasz Fabianski’s quality has been improving since Christmas and I expect him to get a clean sheet. Zaha is also $10,500 salary, far too much when Joshua King & Gylfi Sigurðsson are cheaper and Sadio Mane is only $1,000 more.

As always, good luck everyone!
