The final 8 gameweeks of the season are upon us and with some big fixtures in the offing, we should expect some exciting games and results as well. Here is our list of players who should adorn the armband if you have them in your team:
Charlie Austin (6.4) tops our list this week, owing to QPR’s double gameweek fixtures. Austin averages 5.25 goal attempts in recent times which is a very, very good number compared to his peers in the league. QPR play West Brom and Aston Villa out of which West Brom clearly is the weaker team having conceded 20 goal attempts in the last four gameweeks! Aston Villa is a relatively stronger team defensively, but when you have double gameweeks, you have to give it to the players who have more playing time (which translates to a better probability of scoring as well)
Harry Kane (6.4) is a no-brainer when it comes to choosing the probable captain this gameweek. After scoring a hat-trick last gameweek, Kane also scored for his country in his debut call up, that too making an impact 78 seconds after coming on as a substitute. With an average of 8 points per game and 3.08 goal attempts per game in the last four, Kane is the hottest property at the moment on the EPL circuit. The Spurs have an easy fixture against Burnley this weekend, a team which have allowed their opposition 10.25 goal attempts inside the box. Win win for Mr. Kane, we would say..
Eden Hazard (11.1) may not be getting the attention he deserves, but you cannot undermine the Belgian international’s talent for scoring goals when it matters most. Chelsea are currently 6 points clear and comfortably sit atop the league with a game in hand as well, so there should be very little pressure on the players to get their top game going for the team. Even then, Hazard has maintained an average of 7 points per game, and has also registered 3 key passes in his last four appearances in the league for Chelsea. Opponents Stoke City should not turn out to be formidable opponents for Mourhino’s men, should be a comfortable winfor the table toppers I would say.
Any ways, here is FFT Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Easter and a great footballing weekend as well!
