GW14 Preview

Top Captain Picks

1. Eden Hazard vs Swansea (home) - £10.7 (TSB 7.9%)

Averaging 9 points per game in the last 5 GWs, Hazard is in top form. In this time, he has managed 9 shots on target, and created a chance every 24.7 minutes. Up against a Swansea side sitting 19th on the Premier League table, expect Hazard to be one of the highest FPL scorers in GW14.

2. Harry Kane vs Leicester (away) - £12.8 (TSB 38.1%)

Everything is pointing towards Harry Kane returning a large haul in GW14. Firstly, in his past 4 away starts, Kane has netted 3 braces and picked up 9 bonus points. Secondly, in Kane’s 5 appearances against the Foxes, he has registered an astonishing 8 goals and 1 assist. Thirdly, this season Leicester have leaked goals when playing the ‘big 6’ teams (Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham), having conceded 13 goals in 5 games.

3. Mohamed Salah vs Stoke (away) - £9.7 (TSB 47.3%)

The Egyptian flyer is unstoppable at the moment. In his last 3 starts, he has netted 5 goals, with 15 shots in this period. It appears that no defence will be able to keep him out.

Punt Captain Picks

1. Danny Welbeck vs Huddersfield (home) - £7.3 (TSB 0.8%)

After a bright start to the season, Welbeck’s momentum was cut short by injury, which ruled him out of 6 GWs. However, he is available to start again, and with Mesut Özil ruled out of GW14, Welbeck looks primed to return to the starting XI against Huddersfield. Promisingly, he has averaged 11 FPL points per home start this season, with a shot frequency of 1 every 24 minutes, and a chance created every 36.5 minutes.

2. Matt Phillips vs Newcastle (home) - £5.6 (TSB 0.7%)

Matt Phillips has definitely not set the world alight this season, having only managed 1 goal and 2 assists in 12 appearances, with a shot frequency of 1 every 59.25 minutes, and a chance created every 71.1 minutes. However, is recent performances have been much better than these stats suggest. In GW12 against Chelsea, he regularly found space out wide and looked very dangerous. He then backed this up with a solid performance in GW13 against Tottenham, where he attempted 12 duels and nearly netted a goal. Up against Newcastle, who have only kept 1 away clean sheet all season, and who Phillips netted against in his last appearance against them, GW14 could be the one where Phillips re-discovers his best form.

3. José Izquierdo vs Crystal Palace (home) - £5.9 (TSB 0.1%)

Despite the outstanding performances of Pascal Groß, Izquierdo has quietly gone about his business recently, with 2 goals in his last 4 starts. In particular, he starred in Brighton’s GW12 win at home to Stoke. In this game, Izquierdo created 1 chance and scored 1 goal from 3 shots, having could easily netted himself a brace. He also attempted 5 duels attempted made 3 crosses. Expected to start after having been rested in GW13, the Colombian will battle Crystal Palace, who have conceded 13 goals in 6 games away from home this season. Furthermore, his pace and role on the left wing bodes well for his appeal, as he will be up against Palace’s right back Joel Ward, who does not possess much speed, and Palace’s right midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is not a natural wide midfielder, and may be caught out of position at times throughout the match.
