Sky Sports Fantasy Football champion Dan Cox provides us with his Dribble team for this Saturday’s action.
Dan’s team ‘The Chosen One’ beat almost a million others to the £25,000 jackpot last season and he’s now turning his attention to Dribble, the new single matchday fantasy football game, to add to his fortunes.
Here’s his tips this Saturday…
Pope has been in great form since he came in for the injured Tom Heaton. His average dribble score is 37.4 and he’s a safe pair of hands. I fancy him to keep a clean sheet against Swansea this weekend which will be 10 points but he’s been making a good amount of saves so far with 37 saves in the seven games he’s started and at 6 points a save he can rack up the points. He’s also kept four clean sheets in those seven games he’s started.
I think Chelsea should keep a clean sheet v WBA and for that reason I’m going for Azpilicueta. His dribble average is 28.7 and in his last game against Manchester United he scored 41.2. Always a threat going forward scoring once and with five assists this season already. Always makes plenty of tackles and racks up those passing points.
Hopefully back to his best now. An average score of 32 points. But in his last two games he’s scored 41.8 against Manchester United and 47.5 v Bournemouth. I know he’s only got one goal and one assist so far but I have a feeling he’s going to kick on now. And despite that he’s still picked up good points in the last two games.
Kevin De Bruyne
My most reliable pick this season. An average score of 42.9 points per game. He scored 51.3 against Arsenal last time out. Two goals and six assist this season. He’s in great form. Leicester away I can only see another Manchester City win and I’d expect De Bruyne to be at the heart of the action.
I know his average is a lowly 19.1 and that he only scored 9.3 points in his last game against Chelsea but I’m expecting Lukaku to get back amongst the goals this weekend. It’s been a quiet few weeks. He’s only had three shots on target in his last four games and hasn’t scored in any of them either. But after getting back on the scoresheet for Belgium midweek I’m hoping that against Newcastle he can bag a goal or two. After all he has scored seven goals this season.
Good luck for the weekend
