It’s difficult to call Saturday’s visit of Chelsea.
On one hand you could say we should be able to take all three points against a side struggling to find any form after an awful start to the campaign, but on the other hand you’d half expect Jose Mourinho’s side to begin their revival with a devastating performance.
We’ve been superb over the last six weeks or so and haven’t lost in the league since that 4-3 home defeat to Bournemouth. If Bilic can get his home tactics spot on then you’d back us to beat anyone, but we’re still waiting for that to happen.
There are least two players you can count on to give your The Sun Dream Weekly team a big boost this weekend, though, and hand you a big chance of winning some cash in the process.
We’ve included two Hammers in our team this week, with a carefully selected bunch to help them, and you, get the highest possible score this week…
Petr Cech – Arsenal are on a high after that win over Bayern Munich in midweek, with goalkeeper Cech putting in a top display between the sticks. They host Everton this weekend, and you can count on Cech keeping another clean sheet this weekend.
Martin Skrtel – Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Anfield has given Liverpool a much needed boost and it’s hard to see past a Liverpool win against Southampton at the weekend, with Skrtel possibly keeping a clean sheet in the process.
Nathaniel Clyne – The Liverpool defender faces his former club for the first time this weekend, and he’ll be determined to put in a solid performance. If the Reds win, then Clyne is likely to get himself a cheek assist.
Erik Pieters – A bit of a left-field choice, but Stoke will be looking to build on their away win at Swansea on Monday with another three points against Watford at home. Pieters loves an assist, and may even keep a clean sheet.
Hector Bellerin – The most improved and up and coming defender in the league right now? The youngster has been superb for Arsenal this season and you can back him to get an assist, a clean sheet, or most likely both against Everton.
Philippe Coutinho – Coutinho looked lively in the Europa League on Thursday and will be eager to impress new boss Klopp by getting on the scoresheet. Expect him to be the difference for Liverpool this weekend.
Christian Eriksen – Since the Dane returned from injury he’s made a huge difference to Spurs’ unbeatable form. He’s a dead ball specialist and is arguably the north London club’s most creative player. Huge chance for some big points, and perhaps even a Star Man performance.
Dimitri Payet – No explanation need. The guy is class.
Alexis Sanchez – He can’t stop scoring at the moment, so expect him to be on the scorsheet against Everton this week. If not he’ll no doubt put in a Star Man performance, so make sure you’ve got him in your team.
Christian Benteke – The big Belgian marked his return from injury by smashing the post in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Rubin Kazan on Thursday night, and he’ll be desperete to get a goal or two to impress new boss Klopp. Loads of goals in him.
Diafra Sakho – Loves a goal at home. If we’re going to beat Chelsea then you can expect him to be amongst the goals.
Make sure you join our Dream Team Weekly League and test yourselves against our chosen XI above, as well to be in with a chance of winning some cold, hard cash. Details below…
