Fantasy Premier League Tips: Strikers for Gameweek 10

Drop

Mario Balotelli

If there is anyone who is having high hopes on the Italian to score anytime sooner, it’s only manager Brendan Rodgers. Players who play with high enthusiasm to prove their worth is more likely to score than those who seldom get involved. Last weekend against Hull City at home, the hot-headed forward missed a handful of chances to put the home side in front. Moreover, he loses most of the aerial battles against defenders. It’s clear that he in dwelling with low confidence. One premier league goal will turn things around immediately for the former AC Milan striker, yet it’s not arriving anywhere closer. A risky gamble for your dream team!

Punt

Samuel Eto’o

The former Barcelona star is without a doubt one of the most prolific forwards in the globe, winning numerous trophies in different leagues plus individual achievements. He was closely linked to the Merseyside Red after leaving Chelsea on a short term deal. However, he made a surprising move to the Toffees, blue half of the Merseyside. Last weekend, the Cameroon international scored an impressive brace against Burnley. Despite bagging mixed reviews during his time at the Blues, each football viewer knows the quality and experience the former Inter Milan star comprises. His pair of goals in the previous match provided he has not left his goal scoring boots down. Firstly, a solid header in the penalty box, followed by a sublime long range strike for the second of the night. However, he began the match as Roberto Martinez didn’t want to overstrain England International Ross Barkley who just returned from injury. Hence, Samuel Eto’o is clearly not a sure starter unless injury concerns.

Hot

Diafra Sakho

The Senegalese forward traumatized Manchester City’s title ambition last weekend with a composed header in the second half. He is arguably one of the best signings of the previous transfer window. He has dropped each Hammer’s fan concern about the return date of England International Andy Carroll who continuously seeks medical attentions with fresh injuries. Sakho scored his sixth goal of the season, resulting from a magnificent cross ball by Enner Valencia. This new strike pair has made West Ham United deadly in attack with enormous pace and strength. Sakho is surprisingly not named in the Senegal international squad, however his form has made everyone applauding West Ham, who currently holds the fourth, Champions League spot in the league. Swiftness in attack and effortless link up play with his attacking teammates has made Sakho under many premier league giants’ sight. He would be a great addition for the fantasy premier league!

Star Picks

Romelu Lukaku – The powerful Belgian got another goal last weekend and is blooming in confidence.
