The first Three-Game Week is coming up
After almost all the favourites won at the weekend, the first Three-Game Week this season is about to begin. This matchday, however, things look quite different. The only clear favourite is Man. City, although Nottingham Forrest showed a very good game against Tottenham and they will also throw everything in against the Citizens. Liverpool took out all their frustrations on promoted Bournemouth this weekend and we can’t wait to see how they do against the Magpies. There is also another London derby coming up. West Ham and Tottenham will meet.
Dean Henderson(58₵, Nottingham): He’s in the preview for the second time now, in a short space of time, but anyone who scores like this as a goalkeeper deserves it. With 370 average points, he is one of the best scoring players and is currently the best goalkeeper at SPITCH. Wednesday sees Nottingham take on Man. City, who have the most shots on goal of any team in the Premier League. If the Englishman continues to make such outstanding saves, then the game against the Citizens will be a points-fest for him.
James Tarkowski (79₵, Everton): The 29-year-old is a permanent fixture at left centre-back and rightly so. He’s doing really well, averaging 294 points despite Everton yet to record a single win this season. He shines most defensively and even leads the ball intercepted/blocked statistic, but he also shows up frequently offensively and already has a full five shots on goal in four games, which is very unusual for a centre-back but will make any SPITCH manager sit up and take notice.
Jonathan Castro (61₵, Wolverhampton): Things are not going well at all for Wolves either and they are in penultimate place in the table without a win. Nevertheless, the Spaniard shows good performances and collects solid SPITCH points. On Wednesday Wolves have to play against promoted Bournemouth and he could score well again.
Joachim Andersen (77₵, Palace): Palace, on the other hand, are actually doing okay as they find themselves in mid-table, although they have already faced Liverpool, Man. City and Arsenal. The strong opponents so far don’t seem to bother the Danish centre-back and he has consistently scored in the green. Against this week’s opponents Brentford, Palace are even favourites and we can be curious to see whether the 26-year-old can show his class again.
Diogo Dalot (59₵, Man. United): We can also be curious to see how Man. United will finish the next games. After all, the first two games were disastrous, but now they could take three points in each of the last two games. Diogo Dalot already shone with his assist in the last game and if he continues like this, he could well pick up points against last-placed Leicester.
Bernardo Silva (128₵, Man. City): After only being allowed to come off the bench in the first two games, the Portuguese started the other two games from the start and delivered fireworks. Both times he scored over 500 points, scored twice, set up a goal and had three shots on goal. He can definitely be just as convincing against Nottingham and hopefully bring you some points.
Pascal Groß (85₵, Brighton): Before this season, few would have expected Pascal Groß to take off, but so far he is playing an excellent season. He has scored three times and set up one goal in his first four games and is one of the strongest midfielders at SPITCH with his 283 points. The Seagulls get the chance to play Fulham tomorrow and the German could score again in a big way.
Ruben Neves (85₵, Wolverhampton): If we’re talking about very high-scoring midfielders, then of course he can’t be left out, as Neves has been convincing all along the line this season and even collected almost 600 points in the last game. He is Wolves’ key player and could become a scoring machine again against Bournemouth.
Rodrigo (66₵, Leeds): I wouldn’t have believed anyone that he would be the second most prolific striker behind Erling Haaland, but the Spaniard is showing it to the whole Premier League at the moment, averaging an incredible 423 points and being instrumental in Leeds being fifth in the table at the moment. He has also scored four times, set up a goal and had eleven shots on target. Leeds will play Everton and he could put in another very strong performance.
Raheem Sterling (125₵, Chelsea): He also put in a very good performance recently, blowing away Leicester with his two goals alone. He scored a total of 499 points in that game and, with Chelsea favourites against Southampton, could well repeat such a strong performance.
Bukayo Saka (91₵, Arsenal): At the moment, you can actually field just about any Arsenal player, except perhaps goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, and Saka is one of the players who stands out. He averages 235 points and is one of the strongest youngsters in the Prem. League. Against Aston Villa he could once again show his class and score some points.
Other players to keep an eye on are Thiago Silva (160₵, Chelsea), who always has a very big scoring potential, Christian Norgaard (73₵, Brentford), who is playing really well in the last two games and Erling Haaland (280₵, Man. City), who could live up to his price on this matchday.
