Fantasy Team Picks
We begin our set of picks with the selection of David Raya from the home side. He’s been a real watchdog for them, a player who has nit picked to fish out everything sent down his way.
With Newcastle United well aware of the magnitude of the test staring them in the face today, the side is set to pay special focus to defence. The only way the club can salvage a win is if it bulks up its backline.
With the club set to defend in numbers, there’s a slight likelihood of the team pulling off a shut down. It sees us opt for Ciaran Clark, Jamal Lewis and Isaac Hayden from the side.
When Ryan Fraser had ended up making the switch from Bournemouth to Newcastle United, this was touted to be a sensational piece of business for Newcastle United. The club had ended up with an electric play, someone capable of lighting up their attack.
He’s been left in the cold though but a chance today means he’s an instant pick for us alongside last season’s leading scorer, Jonjo Shelvey. Matt Ritchie completes the trio from the side while the vibrant Josh da Silva is our pick from the home team.
Saving Newcastle United against Fulham with his Fulham earning the club a draw at the weekend sees Callum Wilson be a must have pick.
Brentford on the other hand will see a duo make a way into our side in this slot. In Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney, the side is blessed with two worldclass strikers, player who have ripped teams into shreds this season.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Seven goal man Wilson will captain our side while Fraser is the vice-captain.
Raya, Clark, Hayden, Lewis, Shelvey, Josh, Matt, Fraser, Mbeumo, Wilson, Ivan
