First things first, Fantasy Premier League managers need to act quick if they wish not to get caught out by the deadline as it’s almost time for kick-off for gameweek 15.
This week can be trickier than people might think as rotation will play a major role this month, specially for the top-flight sides who’ll be involved in 4 games in the next two weeks after already playing this weekend.
Prices will be on Javier Hernandez (£6.2m) and Marko Arnautovic (£7.2m) as West Ham will look to build on to their win, specially keeping in mind that they’ve an excellent run of games in the next 7 Gameweeks which doesn’t have any top-6 side.
With Arsenal and Manchester United facing off against each other, it will be logical to keep them away from the line-up, but given recent meetings and accumulates we can expect a lot of goals. Especially, the dangerous form of Aubameyang (£11.1m) and Lacazette (£9.6m) will be vital as Ozil is expected to start from the bench after a short injury lay-off.
Liverpool and Manchester City will be both contesting a tricky away game and specially keeping in mind next midweeks Champions League crunch, it’s easy to predict Klopp’s and Pep’s rotation strategy. Mane (£9.8) and Robertson (£6.5) are big concerns for gameweek 15, while Aguero (£11.4) will be definitely be missing their match-up after failing to clear the late fitness test.
In defence, we can expect clean-sheets from Everton and Spurs as they look set for comfortable victories. Trippier (£6.1m), Sanchez (£5.8m) and Vertonghen (£5.9m) are set to miss out due to injuries, so the onus is on Aldo (£5.9m) and Foyth (£5.0m) to show up with a commanding performance after their collapse in the London Derby. On the contrary, Keane (£5.0m), Digne (£4.9m), Coleman (£5.2m) are definite in giving us points as they face a Newcastle side who are struggling in front of goal this entire season.
It would be wise to go for any of the following players to hand-over the captain’s armband considering the situation in gameweek 15.
Marko Arnautovic (£7.2m): The striker has a lot to offer and this week might be the chance to get on the score-sheet and move on, specially with Chicharito (£6.2m) and Anderson (£7.1m) coming back to blazing form.
Callum Wilson (£6.9m): Wilson hasn’t failed even when his side retracted from the best services they could provide. It will be a wise decision to captain Wilson given a match against a side who has kept the least number of clean-sheets in the campaign.
Harry Kane (£12.4m): Spurs will be looking for full points in gameweek 15 after the defeat to rivals Arsenal. Expect Spurs to not show mercy against manager-less Southampton and specially with Kane back in form, we can expect a few goals from him.
