Former winner Sky Sports Fantasy Football winner, Dan Cox, bundles his two weekly articles together this week in a shortened down version ahead of the overhaul

My Five Picks

So as I’ve said that you shouldn’t be making any transfers this weekend then it would be a bit of a contradiction to suggest a five. But I have anyway just incase you feel the need to make a move. And most people will probably own a few of these players anyway so I’ll keep it brief.

1. and 2. Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling.

Manchester City face Brighton ah home and I think most people would expect City to get three or four goals. I’m just hoping that the above two are the main beneficiaries.

3. Teemu Pukki.

Norwich face West Ham at the London Stadium and I feel like the only person in the world who doesn’t own the Finnish striker in FPL. His ownership in Sky is ever-increasing also - again I don’t own him in Sky either. In 43.07% of the top 1000 teams. Another goal this weekend will see non-owners again face a drop down the leaderboard. I think he’s going to be a very popular Overhaul pick.

4. Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool face Burnley away and again as aways I think the Egyptian will get a goal or two. I especially think it this weekend as I had to transfer Salah out to facilitate the Aguero in move I made on Sunday.

5. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal face an out of sort Spurs on Sunday and I think he will be a popular choice. Again I took him out last Sunday for Raheem Sterling so he could punish me for that move. Although I’m hoping that Harry Kane who has a pretty good NLD record can grab a goal to save my blushes.
