The first two Premier League gameweeks have given Fantasy Managers a fair idea as to how the teams would be lining up for most part of the season. Manager preferences, player roles and the overall balance of almost all sides is pretty evident by now. So here is the Fantasy Premier League Scout with his expert predictions for the week !
Both the Manchester clubs have found the zing this season that they were so desperately looking for last time round. Mourinho and Pep have assessed the situation to perfection and have very admirably completed the puzzle to give these clubs a very good chance of getting their hands on the Premier league trophy.
Chelsea too have begun proceedings on a positive note and looked pretty settled under Antonio Conte. Arsenal have had their perennial ‘start of the season’ issues and look set for another ‘4th ’ this season. Liverpool started off in impressive attacking fashion but succumbed to a rather tame 2-0 loss to Burnley last time round.
Despite securing the services of Vardy and Mahrez, Leicester haven’t been clinical enough and find themselves looking for inspiration from their Manager once again, if they want to have any chance of repeating what they did the last time round.
On the Fantasy front Sergio Aguero and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have set the ball rolling for the highest scorer, with both these stalwarts scoring 3 goals in the first two games and already giving Fantasy managers as to whom to opt for out of these two as having both of them can really upset the overall balance o your side.
Negredo has been the trump card, securing 19 points in two games and looking ominously strong. Gray too lived up to his pre season hype as he helped Burnley script an authoritative win over Liverpool. (Fantasy Premier League Scout)
The midfielders though haven’t really stepped up until now, with none of top midfielder really turning it on in the first 2 gameweeks (probably with the exception of Coutinho)
With just one gameweek to go before the international break, I wouldn’t suggest using of the wildcard as of now, as players could get injured whilst on international duty.
