Safe Spine: Manchester City (vs Crystal Palace)
Manchester City’s easy home matchup against Crystal Palace takes the Gameweek 18 Daily Fantasy headlines. City have won this fixture 5-0 in the last two seasons under Pep. They’ve scored 3+ goals in each of their last 4 Premier League games. Clean sheets have been more challenging to come by, but there’s a precedent in this fixture.
FWDs: Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane
MID: Kevin De Bruyne
DEF: Aymeric Laporte
We are spoilt for choice with attacking players here, with Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane both in form. Sterling has blanked in just one home start this season and Sane has delivered in every home game he’s started. Expect them to be among the goals here.
De Bruyne is back from injury and looked eager to contribute in his first outing in the Carabao Cup earlier this week. He should feature given David Silva is out injured. Laporte was rested midweek, so should lead the defence, as they search for their 9th clean sheet of the season.
Goals Galore: West Ham vs Watford
West Ham are in great form for the Gameweek 18 daily picks, scoring 11 goals in their last 4 games. Watford have found the back of the net in each of their last 3 games, with 6 goals in that time. Expect both teams to score here.
FWD: Gerard Deulofeu
MIDs: Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass, Roberto Pereyra
Anderson and Snodgrass are the form players for the home team: Snodgrass has 2 goals and 3 assists in his last 4 games, Anderson has 2 goals and 2 assists in that time. They provide plenty of creativity on the flanks.
Watford put in a convincing performance last weekend: Deulofeu grabbed a goal and an assist. Pereyra has 2 assists in his last 2 games. These two are likely to be involved in any Watford attacks.
Clean Sheet Stack: Chelsea (vs Leicester)
Chelsea have kept clean sheets in each of their last 3 Premier League games, with another shutout on the agenda to climb to 9 for the season. Meanwhile, Leicester have failed to score in two of their last three games. Consider stacking Chelsea defenders in Gameweek 18 daily games.
DEFs: Marcos Alonso, David Luiz
GKP: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Marcos Alonso provides the attacking threat from the Chelsea defence: he’s hit the woodwork 4 times this season and has 1 goal and 7 assists. Luiz defensive statistics lend well to the Starting 11 format, with tackles and passes rewarded with points.
Kepa has managed 38 saves this season, including 4 in each of his last 2 home games against Manchester City and Fulham.
Starting 11 have contests available on Saturday. Here’s the team we will be lining up with on Saturday. Sterling is given the captains armband, with the most enticing fixture of the weekend.
