The Burundi born forward is rated as one of the most exhilarating young attackers this season, recording 12 goals and an assist. Alike Graziano Pelle, the 21-year old had a greater first half of the campaign and is somewhat ebbing away lately. Berahino has not found the back of the net in the last four matches, losing the trust of dream team managers. It would be foolhardy to point fingers at him for the low-spirited run as he is not getting enough supplies from the midfielders to get him going. This weekend, the Baggies travel to Selhurst Park to face a thriving Crystal Palace, who hold a resilient backline and rampaging attackers.
Last weekend against Hull City, the fans at St Mary’s Stadium and Ronald Koeman felt a big relief plus joy to witness the Italian forward back to scoring ways. Signs of petulance were noticed on the former Parma and Feyenoord striker in recent months, being a sizzling star when the season took off, series of spectacular goals. Pelle will once again be on the starting sheet ahead of the match at the Britannia Stadium as the manager will be craving his star striker picks up what he left off in the first half of the season. It could be tricky too as the Potters do hold a backline that will challenge Pelle’s physical strength equally. The towering forward isn’t a player who can dribble pass multitude defenders with pace. He needs to hold on to last week’s impetus and find the back of the net at Stoke City.
It would be reasonably surprising for fantasy premier league managers to witness the Crystal Palace forward under the hot category. At Arsenal, Olivier Giroud has been on tremendous form since returning from injury, swatting sublime goals and always in for more. Similarly at Selhurst Park, the 31-year old is an ideal reason of the Eagles’ superb display under Alan Pardew. His first match after the long medical concern was against the Gunners where he came off the bench, notched a goal and denied a heroic return when hiss second shot hit the woodwork in the dying moments. The powerful target-man has registered six goals plus four assists since then, making him one of the most rewarding finishers in the Premier League. Three goals in his last three matches, he has the shrewdness to place himself in the finest position to receive neat crosses from Yannick Bolasie as well as Jason Puncheon. This weekend, in front of his flamboyant home crowd, the Englishman will take on a confidence-dented West Brom backline. Boundless energy of the wingers and the momentum of Murray could see another goal feast at Selhurst Park.
Loic Remy – The Frenchman is filling Chelsea’s number one choice striker role as Costa continues to race against time to be fit.
Wayne Rooney – Holding the armband and living up to expectations, the England forward is playing his finest football.
Harry Kane – The joint-top scorer of the league is expected to return to scoring ways at St James Park.
Sergio Aguero – Despite returning home with a defeat to Manchester United last weekend, the electrifying forward bagged a well-taken brace.
Danny Ings – Nine goals and four assists so far this season, good contender for the dream team.
