Gameweek 12: Fantasy Football Tips

Mixed

FINALLY! International football is over and the Premier League returns this weekend. We have looked at the fixtures for this gameweek and given our opinion on who will be worthwhile transferring into your Fantasy Football team!

Xherdan Shaqiri

After managing to get two assists and scoring once in his last two games, Xherdan Shaqiri is on his way to becoming a cult hero for Mark Hughes’ side. Shaqiri has proven to be a vital member of Stoke’s starting XI this season, playing a total of 830 minutes out of The Potters’ opening eleven games. Stoke travel to Brighton in this gameweek’s edition of MNF and will be looking to add to their recent good form. Brighton are unbeaten in their last four games in the Premier League and will be a tough opposition for Stoke, who will no doubt be hoping Shaqiri can provide some magic for the Potters and get the three points.

James Tarkowski

Many people thought Burnley would struggle this season. After selling Michael Keane and Andre Gray in the summer, it looked like it would be a tough test for Sean Dyche to keep the Clarets in the Premier League for a second consecutive season. Eleven games into the season and Burnley are currently flying in 7th position. With their last four wins in the Premier League all being 1-0, this is the sign of team that bases their success off a solid back four. Tarkowski has been an ever present in the Premier League this season, and has put in several good performances which has led to praise off various pundits. Burnley are at home to Swansea this weekend, who are in a poor run of form losing their last four games in a row in the league.

Callum Wilson

There isn’t many, if any, footballers that have had worse luck than Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson. Since promotion to the Premier League in 2015, Wilson has missed the vast majority of the last 2 1/4 seasons after suffering two ACL injuries. In the limited Premier League action that Wilson has seen, he has shown his predator instincts in front of goal. The striker completed 90 minutes of football in Bournemouth’s last fixture away to Newcastle, and is looking nearer to full match sharpness. Bournemouth host Huddersfield on Saturday, the Terriers have found it difficult on the road so far this season losing four out of their five away games so far in the Premier League.
