It was a glorious return for this column last week. Our standout pick in attack, Romelu Lukaku, scored four goals and created two more as Everton beat Bournemouth 6-3. We also netted points from Andy Carroll, who scored for West Ham, plus clean sheet points for Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld. All in all, Week 24 was a good one for our draft.
But we move on to a new gameweek, and we will once again attack the Saturday slate at DraftKings. This covers the 15:00 (GMT) and 17:30 (GMT) matches. Here is our Premier League Fantasy Football Week 25 Team.
David de Gea ($6,000)
We don’t normally like to spend too much of our salary cap on a goalkeeper, but De Gea is unmissable this week.
Manchester United have conceded just two goals in their last five games, with clean sheets in their last two outings.
Watford has improved lately with back-to-back wins, but those came against a weakened Arsenal team and Burnley, who are awful away from home.
We expect United to win here, and probably keep a clean sheet.
Defender: Chris Smalling ($3,500)
The Manchester United defender stands an excellent chance of picking up clean sheet points here.
He doesn’t offer much in an attacking sense, but at $3,500 he is an absolute steal. You won’t find any cheaper defenders with a greater chance of bagging the points.
Defender: Aaron Cresswell ($4,000)
Cresswell has been on the radar of the England national team selectors, and with good reason; he is an excellent attacking full back.
West Ham has netted nine goals in their last four games, while their West Brom opponents have scored just ten in twelve away matches this season.
As such, Cresswell stands a chance of scoring points from both phases of play this week.
Midfielder: Sadio Mane ($7,900)
Liverpool plays host to a Tottenham side this week who are missing their left back Danny Rose and left-sided centre back Jan Vertonghen due to injury.
We expect Liverpool’s tricky right winger Mane to take full advantage. He was in excellent form before leaving for the African Cup of Nations in January, aiding Liverpool’s cause with nine goals and as many assists. Now he’s back he will be looking to make up for lost time.
Midfielder: Juan Mata ($6,600)
The Spaniard is criminally underpriced this week…good news for us!
He netted against Leicester last time out, which was his fifth goal of the season. Mata also averages 9.30 FPPG for an attacking Manchester United side, which we expect to win well on Saturday.
Forward: Jermain Defoe ($6,500)
Southampton has lost six of their last seven games, conceding 15 goals in the process, and we expect the Sunderland marksman to take full advantage this week.
The Saints sold Jose Fonte to West Ham and now have Virgil van Dijk injured; two key defenders gone in the blink of an eye.
Defoe scored twice last week to take his tally up to 14 for the season. He may be 34-years-old, but there’s life in the old dog yet.
Forward: Harry Kane ($8,900)
Our star attraction this week is Harry Kane, who has scored seven goals in as many games. His Tottenham side are on fire at the moment.
Liverpool hasn’t kept a clean sheet in 2017 yet, and they could be without two key defenders here. Dejan Lovren is definitely out injured, while his most likely replacement – Ragnar Klavan – is suffering with illness.
Expect Kane to make them pay.
Utility: Marko Arnautovic ($6,100)
The pony-tailed Stoke winger is an excellent pick for Premier League Fantasy Football; the salary-deciders generally always undervalue him.
The Austrian averages 8.40 FPPG, which is higher than many more expensive players, and he has been in great form lately.
This week Stoke takes on a Crystal Palace side who lost 0-4 in their last game, so his selection makes sense.
