Liverpool’s Mo Salah to score BIG against Everton in Merseyside Derby?
This Sunday’s contest on Starting 11 sees Chelsea travel to Fulham, while Liverpool take on Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Free-to-play and cash games are available every single Gameweek on Starting11.io and here’s a look at some players to consider from the 3 Premier League games this Sunday.
Points are still awarded for goals, assists and clean-sheets – however, points for passing, tackles shots on target are also up for grabs!
Liverpool have kept 3 consecutive Premier League clean sheets now and their total of 16 for the season is 3 more than any side.
Their total of 15 goals conceded is 5 fewer than any other team have managed, so Everton will have their work cut out to get past Alisson this weekend.
The league leaders enjoyed a confident 5-0 win over Watford midweek, with full-backs Alexander-Arnold (3) and Robertson (2) providing each assist between them.
The pair have been directly involved in a combined total of 16 goals this season and Robertson’s tally of 9 assists ranks top amongst defenders.
Alonso returned for Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Spurs midweek and may have done enough to maintain his starting place for the trip to Fulham this weekend.
His total of 7 assists this season can only be bettered by Robertson (9) and no defender has taken more goal attempts than the Chelsea left-back’s 37.
Holebas is set to return from suspension this weekend as Watford welcome Leicester to Vicarage Road, looking to quickly forget the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.
The left-back has been a consistent threat from set pieces this season, creating a total of 32 chances in his 23 appearances; only Robertson (34), Trippier (37) and Digne (45) have produced more amongst defenders.
Maddison registered his 5th assist of the season during the win over Brighton midweek, creating a total of 5 chances against the Seagulls.
His total of 22 chances created across the last 6 Gameweeks ranks 1st in the Premier League, comfortably ahead of the likes of De Bruyne (13), Hazard and Eriksen (11).
His teammate Harvey Barnes has played his way into the Leicester starting lineup in recent weeks, starting in each of the last 4 matches and producing a league-high total of 18 goal attempts in that time.
His tally of 13 shots inside the box is on par with Agüero; only Rondon (14) has taken more.
Gylfi Sigurdsson fired a brace to secure the win over Cardiff midweek, overtaking Richarlison as Everton’s top goalscorer with 11 goals to the Brazilian’s 10.
The Iceland international has averaged 2.3 shots per game across his last 6 matches and his set piece duties could be crucial if Everton are to take anything from the game against Liverpool.
But the Egypt international’s underlying numbers for goal threat continue to show promise ahead of the Merseyside derby. His total of 7 efforts on target in the last 4 Gameweeks can be bettered by only Agüero – with 8 for the Man City forward.
Higuaín opened his account for Chelsea with a brace against Huddersfield back in Gameweek 25 and after facing Man City and Spurs in the last two league matches, the Argentine will be looking to add to his tally when Fulham travel to Stamford Bridge this Sunday.
The 31-year-old has fired 13 goal attempts over the last 4 Gameweeks, ranking 7th best in the league, with Harvey Barnes (18), Salah (16) and Agüero (15) leading the way.
After his early withdrawal against Spurs, Hazard should be well-rested for the visit to Fulham on Sunday.
The Belgian has recorded 4 goals and 1 assist across his last 6 league matches against teams outside of the ‘top six’, averaging 2.7 shots and 2.3 chances created per game.
Chelsea are up against a Fulham defence that have shipped 14 goals in the last 6 matches; joint-worst in the league, along with Cardiff and Leicester, so Hazard provides a strong captaincy option for this Sunday’s contest.
