Will the favourites live up to their role?

The Champions League has started again and for the Premier League clubs it is from one English week to the next English week. Man. City and Liverpool have already won their CL matches, next week Chelsea and Man. United have to play. But first everyone has to focus on the Premier League weekend. Many of the clubs from the top half of the table will play against clubs from the lower half of the table, so it will be interesting to see whether there will be any surprises or whether the favourites will come out on top. In this preview, I present you with cheap alternatives to the top stars, but also players who can make the difference.


Angus Gunn (7.1m, Norwich): It’s against Liverpool, the team with the second most goal shots in the Premier League and the Briton already shone against the team with the most goal shots Man. City. Despite the 4-0 defeat, he made 344 points and even managed to save a penalty. Against the Reds, I expect a similar game where he will be given plenty to do and may even concede few to no goals.


Jonjoe Kenny (5.7m, Everton): Bundesliga fans may already know the full-back from his time at Schalke 04, where he played every game from the start throughout the season. He was then loaned out again in the 2020/21 season to Celtics where he was able to show his class once more. This season at Everton he gets the chance to prove himself from time to time and when he is allowed to start from the beginning he very often performs well. In the last game he scored a solid 235 points and if he gets another chance he will be keen to prove himself against Southampton.

Maximilian Kilman (9.0m, Wolverhampton): Kilman is actually already a well-known personality at SPITCH, always delivers good performances and with an average of 244 points and a price tag of 9.0m he has a very good price-performance ratio. He is also second in ball intercepted/blocked statistics in the last five matchdays and was voted Man of the Match in the commanding 2-0 win over Tottenham. In a post-match interview, he once again urges his team to maintain consistency and give it their all again against Leicester. He is already a very consistent SPITCH pick who could have even more scoring potential than before with his added motivation.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (11.9m, Man. City): Pep Guardiola is one of the best tacticians the football world has ever seen and what his full-backs do is also something very special. You can regularly see them moving to the eight or six and providing impetus in the build-up play and in the forward play. Oleksandr Zinchenko, when Guardiola gives him his time, shows time and again that he can implement his system of play almost to perfection. At the weekend he was allowed to play against Norwich. In the CL, however, he was only substituted for John Stones. He is one of the cheapest players at the Citizens and should he be back in the starting line-up, he is definitely worth considering.

Emil Krafth (4.7m, Newcastle): Kieran Trippier broke his foot and is out for several weeks, so the Swede Emil Krafth could show his class. At Newcastle he has only played a few minutes and has not yet managed to earn a regular place. Now he could get his chance and he will do everything to show good performances.


Oriol Romeu (10.6m, Brighton): The 30-year-old Spaniard has often put in solid performances at Southampton, but has been improving more and more recently. In the last four league games he is averaging 245 points, with no involvement in goal and three of the four opponents have been Man. City, Man. United and Tottenham. Against Everton, who have underperformed this season, I see a lot of scoring potential from him and maybe even a goal contribution.

Jakub Moder (5.6m, Brighton): In his last three league games, 22-year-old Jakub Moder has been a very good player at SPITCH. He is averaging 313 points and 2 goal shots per game in his last three games. This weekend’s game is against bottom of the table Burnley and the Pole could very well bring you points for a low price of 5.6m.

Luke Cundle (0.6m, Wolverhampton): The 19-year-old made his Premier League debut last weekend. He only scored 52 points at SPITCH, but in my opinion had a relatively good game. At a price of 0.6m, you can’t go far wrong and if he were to play, he could also score more this matchday and prove himself further at Wolves.


Bukayo Saka (10.2m, Arsenal): Arsenal’s exceptional talent is really showing what he can do this season. At home in the Emirates Stadium, he leads almost all offensive statistics for the Gunners. So far this season, he has 27 shots and 24 chances created. If Saka can continue his home form, he should be on every SPITCH manager’s radar.

Riyad Mahrez (18.6m, Man City): Mr. Champions League is back. On Tuesday night he was involved in two goals and made over 500 points. It will be a tough game against Tottenham, but with Man City’s strength of form, I can’t see Mahrez underperforming.

Harvey Elliot (8.9m, Liverpool): The youngster made his first Champions League appearance and made a good debut. At SPITCH he showed a rather weak performance with 46 points in 59 minutes, but still had good actions. This weekend they play against Norwich, 17th in the league. Having Liverpool players in your lineup in this matchup is actually a must and should the 18-year-old play, he could be a cheap alternative to the top players at Liverpool and maybe even score just as well.

Other alternatives:

Other players to keep an eye on are Nathan Ake (14.5m, Man. City) who keeps getting chances to prove himself at City, Adam Lallana (7.5m, Brighton) who has been playing strongly again recently and Raul Jimenez (11.0m, Wolverhampton) who managed to score in the last game and continues to be goal hungry.

About me: I have been supporting SPITCH for several weeks as an intern in the various departments. Through my experience on the free pitches, I want to help you find interesting players that maybe not everyone has on their radar.
