After the thrill of the last Premier League Match Day, I am not sure that the 27th round of matches can even come close to comparing to the excitement or intrigue. The main slate of games isn’t awe inspiring but will see Leicester attempt to right the ship after a heart breaking loss to Arsenal last time out and Chelsea attempt to continue the positive momentum following Guus Hiddink’s arrival. Without further ado, let us delve into the best DFS plays for the main slate of Saturday matches.
Odion Ighalo ($6600) Ighalo has been top class all season long and has a lot to do with the incredible success Watford has had. Bournemouth present a matchup that should be free flowing and feature a few goals. As such, I like the Watford man to find the back of the net and reward you for the investment.
Marko Arnautovic ($4700) Last time out, Liverpool put six past Villa. Midweek, their own U21s beat the senior side 3-0. This is a no brainer for me. Any striker starting against Villa is a striker I want on my squad, especially at that price point.
Yohan Cabaye ($6200) At this point, everyone should know how much I like a player that takes all the set pieces for a team, especially one that has the capability to score on occasion. West Brom haven’t been the typical Tony Pulis side and have allowed a good number of goals, and due to that, Cabaye will be in the majority of my lineups.
Xherdan Shaqiri ($5300) The creative influence of Stoke going up against Aston Villa? How quickly do I sign up?
Eden Hazard ($5100) None of these midfielders are really a bargain, unless you consider the fact that Hazard was in the $8000 range to start the season. After scoring in the FA cup, I am willing to give the Belgian a shot to show that the loss of form shown so far this season is just a fluke.
Nathan Ake ($300) Ake is a gifted footballer that has provided stability down the flank for Watford all season long. As mentioned before, I feel like this matchup will be free flowing, allowing the Chelsea man to get up the pitch often and rack up the crosses.
Jonny Evans ($2800) This pick is dependent on Evans playing as a fullback again. If the former United man is indeed on the flanks, $2800 is a great price to save some cash and still get a nice return.
Thibault Courtois ($3900) The young Belgian is still a top class keeper, despite getting a bit overlooked this season. While the Chelsea defense hasn’t been strong this season, I have a feeling they will keep a clean sheet with a save or two going Courtois’ way.
That’s all for this week. Enjoy the matches on what looks to be a sunny Saturday throughout the UK!
