GW1 Preview

Top Captain Picks

1. Mo Salah vs West Ham (home) - £13.0 (TSB 52.9%)

This is a no brainer really. Given his ownership and attacking abilities, the safest thing to do in GW1 is captain Salah.

2. Alexis Sánchez vs Leicester (home) - £10.5 (TSB 8.7%)

Starting at centre forward, the Chilean was very impressive in pre-season, netting two goals and providing one assist. Coming off the back of a full off-season, he will be raring to go against Leicester, a side who Sánchez has scored four goals in six matches against.

3. Sergio Agüero vs Arsenal (away) - £11.0 (TSB 26.2%)

Agüero has experienced a massive ownership rise since his scintillating brace in the Community Shield. Playing an Arsenal side who he has not blanked against since the beginning of the 2015/16 Premier League season, the Argentine has great potential this week.

Punt Picks

1. Lucas Moura vs Newcastle (away) - £7.0 (TSB 2.3%)

Lucas was one of the stand out players in pre-season, scoring four goals and providing two assists. Pretty much locked in to start on the wing, the Spurs flyer will be coming up against a Newcastle team in dire straights, winning only one game in pre-season and looking extremely shaky in defence.

2. Diogo Jota vs Everton (home) - £6.5 (TSB 6.5%)

Scoring two goals and providing one assist in pre-season, Jota was dangerous in every game. Spending a lot of time in central areas, Jota is integral to the Wolves attack, and may move to centre forward after the signing of Traore. Moreover, Everton’s pre-season form has been shocking, losing all six of their matches (not including the ridiculous 22-0 win), and conceding 10 goals in their last three games.

3. Andre Gray vs Brighton (home) - £6.0 (TSB 0.7%)

Gray’s record against Brighton is better than his record against any other Premier League team (four goals in seven games). Given that he returned a goal or assist in every pre-season match, he is in form, and has the potential to carry on his great record against the Seagulls.
