SOU Vs EVE Fantasy Team Picks
While Southampton’s attack was handed all the plaudits for the club’s sensational 3-3 draw against Chelsea, the defence was equally pivotal. Especially goal-keeper Alex McCarthy who refused to let anything go through his gloves in the second half to keep Chelsea’s attack at bay.
Ever since his arrival at Everton, Lucas Digne has taken on shape as one of the most versatile defenders in the league. The fullback’s searing marches into attack and pinch perfect crossing and assists have seen him be a major contributor to his side’s attacks with his registering an assist the last time around as well.
Yerry Mina has been a rock in the CB role to see him join up along with new signing Ben Godfrey who justified the faith his side reposed in him with a stellar debut in the feisty derby against Liverpool.
There were question marks on his availability for today’s contest but James Rodriguez is looking increasingly likely to make the cut. The midfielder was pictured in practice and with three assists to his name, he makes for a must have pick.
He finds company in the duo of Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure. The two midfielders have had an instant and telling impact at the club with both combining their expansive skill set to form for an indomitable partnership.
Just the one pick for us from Southampton meanwhile with us opting for the services of James Ward-Prowse owing to his ability to spray the ball all over the park with his ball handling abilities.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin just cant stop raking in the goals at the moment. The Everton man has scored in every fixture till now to emerge as the league’s leading scorer to see him be a must have pick for us.
Danny Ings have been an equally crucial player for Southampton. The striker has already scored on four occasions for the club to make him an instant selection with Che Adams who had a goal and assist against Chelsea joining up with him.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The seven goals for Dominic see him captain our side while James is the vice-captain.
Alex, Digne, Mina, Ben, James, Doucoure, James, Allan, Dominic, Ings, Adams
