Starting 11’s daily fantasy football contests this Sunday will kick-off with Everton vs. Manchester United at 1:30pm
There are 3 matches in this Sunday’s contest on Starting 11, as Liverpool travel to Cardiff in search of a 6th consecutive win, to maintain their lead over Man City.
Free-to-play and cash games are available every single Gameweek and here’s a look at some players to consider for Sunday.
Points are still awarded for goals, assists and clean-sheets – however, points for passing, tackles shots on target are also up for grabs!
Following the narrow win over Watford last Monday, Arsenal have now kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 matches, conceding only 1 goal.
Crystal Palace have scored 4 goals in the last 4 matches, with only 3 teams faring worse in that respect and no side recording fewer goal attempts (34).
Leno therefore, could be an option to rival Alisson between the sticks.
It’s hard to overlook the Liverpool options in defence, offering significant attacking threat in addition to a good chance of a clean sheet when the Reds travel to Cardiff.
The last 4 matches have seen the Bluebirds score 3 goals from 2 big chances; ranking 2nd worst in the league on each account.
Alexander-Arnold and Robertson have returned a combined total of 17 assists in the league this season, while Van Dijk has 3 goals and 4 assists to his name.
Sadio Mané has stepped up his form in recent months, registering 10 goals in 15 matches this calendar year; matched by only Agüero.
No midfielder has recorded more big chances (10) than the Senegalese international during that period.
Cardiff have shipped 6 goals in the last 4 matches, allowing opponents 13 big chances across those games, with only West Ham (14), Watford and Huddersfield (each 15) faring worse.
Pogba was back amongst the goals during Man Utd’s win over West Ham last weekend, scoring twice from the penalty spot.
Amongst midfielders, 6 goals by Pogba during this calendar year can only be bettered by Milivojevic (7), Sterling (8) and Mané (10), while only Salah has fired more efforts on target (23 to 18).
Milivojevic converted a free kick against Man City last weekend to find his 12th goal of the season.
The set piece specialist has now bagged a goal in 4 of the last 5 Gameweeks, with only Sterling and Vardy (each 5) registering more goals during that period.
Arsenal have conceded 6 penalties this season; the most of any ‘top six’ side and may struggle to cope with the trickery of Wilfried Zaha.
Sigurdsson has been directly involved in 16 goals this season (12 goals, 4 assists), with a goal and assist across the last 4 Gameweeks.
The Everton midfielder ranks 3rd best with a tally of 14 chances created during that period, behind only De Bruyne (15) and Eriksen (16).
Only Hazard, Eriksen (each 13) and Salah (17) have fired more than his 11 goal attempts from midfield.
Firmino was given a rest against Porto midweek but still found a goal off the bench, during his 2nd half cameo.
The Brazilian has returned 3 goals and 2 assists over the last 5 Gameweeks, with only Vardy (7) directly contributing to more goals amongst forwards.
A home fixture against Crystal Palace sees Arsenal duo Lacazette and Aubameyang come into contention, with the pair directly involved in a combined total of 49 Premier League goals this campaign (31 goals, 18 assists).
Aubameyang capitalised on a mistake by Ben Foster to score his 18th goal of the season and
only Agüero has directly contributed to more goals amongst forwards (29 to 25).
On current form and with the importance that comes with every fixture for Liverpool now, Salah and Mané are both strong contenders for captaincy.
Over the last 6 Gameweeks, although the Egypt international has fired more goal attempts (24 to 15), it’s been Mané enjoying the greater share of big chances (5 to 3).
