The second part of our two-part preview to this week’s action. A look at what the Emirates stadium has to offer and the storm that the Saints will have to encounter come next week.
The sixth game this week will see Burnley take on Stoke at the Britannia Stadium. Stoke’s win at White Hart Lane gave the much needed boost and they have managed to get into the top ten thereafter. Burnley managed to notch up their first win last weekend and their celebrations could well be cut short this time around. They do have some good games coming up and could well be worth a gamble to have the likes of Boyd (4.4 M) and Ings (5.7 M) to free up some funds. Kieran Trippier also scored some attacking points last week. For Stoke, the go to man will be Victor Moses. He has had the pace to cross balls into the box and pop in some goals for Stoke. With Liverpool and Man United up next, ‘a one-match gamble’ would be the most viable option. Do not buy if you don’t have them. Be ready to sell or rotate for the next few weeks.
Next up is the game of the week. A clash of the titans where inconsistent Arsenal will be taking on an injury-ridden Manchester United. Arsenal loss to Swansea last week showed us how inconsistent they can be. Olivier Giroud will be back from injury and could partner Danny Welbeck up front. Alexis Sanchez has been all over the place and is now the joint highest scorer in the Fantasy League. Arsenal have been lacking on the defensive front, with the likes of Chambers and Nacho leaking goals every now and then. Manchester United on the other hand have their fair share of problems with Daley Blind joining the injury list and could possibly be out for another six months according to initial reports.
