Here we suggest some names you were planning to bench but playing them is a good idea , and some other names you probably need to bench rather playing or selling them
1. Jamaal Lascelles ( £4.6m , TSB : 5.7% ) vs SWA H
2 clean sheets in a row and the Magpies are back to their solid defensive performances , that's why you should be confident about Lascelles in the few upcoming weeks , and this weekend is a little special because Newcastle are facing bottom of the table side Swansea home . Remember that Lascelles scored his highest points so far at the Liberty Stadium.
points in reverse fixture : 15
2. Jamie Vardy ( £8.6m , TSB : 15.2% ) vs CHE A
Another time we suggest him despite facing a top 6 team , and again we tell you the same story : this man loves scoring against top 6 teams , 46% of the league goals he has ever scored were against them , 7 out of the 9 goals he scored this season were against them , the 3 away games against them witnessed 3 goals from him , and he netted one against Chelsea back in GW4. That's too much evidence for you to play him without any fear or doubt .
points in reverse fixture : 7
3. Wilfried Zaha ( £6.9m , TSB : 5.6% ) vs BUR H
When Crystal Palace is playing home , all you can think about is one other good outcome from Zaha , he is already involved in goals in 6 home games ( remember he played only 9 ) , and he's the second highest point scoring in his team despite missing 6 games in the start of the season and not getting any bonus points all the season .
points in reverse fixture : 0
1. Nathan Aké ( £4.9m , TSB : 4.0% ) Vs ARS H
Did you know that Arsenal scored in each of their last 5 league games ? Do you think that Bournemouth can be the exception and stop them ? This makes us against picking Bournemouth defenders this GW , and while others could surprise and score , it's highly unlikely for Ake who scored only one goal this season .
points in reverse fixture : 1
2. Jordan Pickford ( £4.9m , TSB : 8.1% ) vs TOT A
The Toffees goalkeeper isn't a good pick this GW since he is going to face Spurs at Wembley , who didn't allow any team to keep clean sheets in the last 10 games , it's also a game where Kane could open his bags for the new year (after scoring twice in the FA Cup earlier this week) and start chasing more records . Or it can be a game that will allow Son to extend his scoring tally since he scored in each of his last 4 home games.
points in reverse fixture : 2
3. Ben Mee ( £4.9m , TSB : 15.2% ) vs CRY A
Despite keeping 2 clean sheets in their last 3 away games , it's unlikely that Burnley can keep one when travelling to the Selhurst Park . It was a failure for all last 7 visiting teams ,except Man City thanks to a missed penalty in the injury time . Moreover Mee suffered an injury this week and it could affect his performance in this game .
