Safe Spine: Liverpool (vs Brighton)
FWD: Mohammed Salah
MID: Naby Keita
DEF: Andrew Robertson
GKP: Alisson Becker
Liverpool have the most favourable fixture in Gameweek 3, as they host Brighton at Anfield. A home fixture is always favourable, and Brighton do struggle on the road, losing this fixture 4-0 last season,
Mo Salah has had a lively start to the season, but has underperformed a little so far. He’s growing into the season and is expected to take his chances in this game. He’s a worthy captain.
Keita has got off to a great start, looking like a valuable asset in the midfield. He’s had plenty of chances in front of goal in the opening games and it looks inevitable that he will convert them this week.
Back to back clean sheets, leave Liverpool with the best defensive record in the league. Robertson has plenty of attacking potential and Allison made some great saves in the Crystal Palace game. Load up.
Goals Galore: Arsenal vs West Ham
MID: Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Felipe Anderson
FWD: Marko Arnautovic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Goals are on the agenda in London this Saturday, as these attacking teams meet: expect both teams to score with these assets involved in the goals.
Mkhitaryan eventually demonstrated against Chelsea that Arsenal have plenty of attacking threat, with the playmaker central to most things. Aubameyang has been disappointing so far, but looks sure to break his duck here.
For West Ham, Arnautovic appeals with his penalty duties, plus he looks to be the most likely scorer in this side. Anderson has managed to create plenty in midfield, but without success as yet. Could this be his week?
Clean Sheet Stack: Chelsea (vs Newcastle)
DEF: Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso
Chelsea are the best bet for a clean sheet this weekend, as they travel to a Newcastle side who are already struggling in the Premier League.
The full backs look crucial to Sarri’s system, with Alonso and Azpilicueta capable of delivering attacking returns alongside clean sheets. Luiz points will be boosted by important clearances, blocks and interceptions.
