Daily Fantasy Premier League Picks: 10 March

fantasy premier league picks gameweek 30

Gameweek 30 of the Premier League kicks on into Sunday, with three games coming at you to close out the round.

Plenty of DFS competitions coming at you from the team at PlayON as well, with plenty of chances to win cash across these contests. To help with that, I offer up my best players for the day, to fine tune your sides and give you the winning edge.

Liverpool v. Burnley

Liverpool play this one following, in all likelihood, a City win on Saturday, meaning they’ll need a win to keep up at the top. Three draws across their last five have proved the stumbling block in the title race and they’ll look to get back to winning ways here to avoid the tag of perennial chokers.

Not a bad opponent to have in that regard. Burnley have lost two in a row and have only won and drawn one from nine cracks at the Reds. They also lost the reverse fixture 3-1 back in December.

I have to opt for the Reds to get up in this one, so it’s their players who interest me from a DFS perspective.

Gun

A clean sheet last out leading to a score of 1770, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£9.3m) has 12 clean sheets, a goal and six assists for a PlayON season average of 1275.

If he pushes on with more attacking stats here, expect another big score.

Value Pick

Similarly benefitting from clean sheets and goals and assist, Virgil van Dijk (£9.1m) has built up an average over 1000, which is not too bad for the price.

If he gets another clean sheet here, and gets close to his last score of 1545, it turns from not too bad to absolute steal!

Chelsea v. Wolves

After a surprise loss to Huddersfield, Wolves bounced back last out to triumph over Cardiff. Chelsea have themselves rebounded from a 6-0 hammering by City to go back to back wins the last two. Sixth against Seventh here, but a 13 point gap between the sides.

Nine meetings for these two in the top flight and Wolves have won just two. One of those was the fixture earlier this season, where they got up 2-1. Can I see them doing the double here? Probably not, so back in the Blues players for your PlayON squads.

Gun

Laying on his 11th assist of the season against Fulham last week, to go with 12 goals, Eden Hazard (£16m) is averaging 1420.

The goals and assists have been coming consistently through the season, so no form drops to worry about, bring him in with confidence.

Value Pick

A goal against Fulham, his third in five games for the club, Gonzalo Higuaín (£10m) has an average of 1390, well above his pricing level.

A good chance to pick up another goal in this, and expect the score to be around or above the average if he does.

POD Pick

With the Blues favourites, there’s a good chance Wolves players will be overlooked. But if they are to get on the scoresheet, I would be looking at Raúl Jiménez (£12.3m), who has 11 goals and eight assists for the season, including one of each last out.

If he bags another attacking stat here, he will be one to set your side apart from the rest.

Arsenal v. Man United

A big clash to close out the round, between two of the most successful sides of the Premier League era, and the top two until Chelsea out-titled Arsenal post 2005. Arsenal came out of the North London derby with a draw, while United grabbed another win to continue unbeaten under the new gaffer. Big game in terms of European completions as well, as this is fifth hosting fourth with just a point between them.

Given they are both Premier League ever-presents, they have faced off 53 times before. After the 16 draws, it is 24-13 to the Red Devils in terms of wins. The visitors also won both the matches last season before a 2-2 draw earlier this term.

With the form under the new boss, I see United winning, but not keeping a clean sheet, which opens up forwards on both sides for DFS purposes.

Gun

The only player averaging over 2000 in the league, you cannot overlook Paul Pogba (£13.6m), with 11 goals and ten assists for the term.

Rested up from missing the midweek Champions League win, he should be raring to go here and the first name on your teamsheet!

Value Pick

With three goals and two assists in his last three games, Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£12.2m) has an average of 1730.

Up against his former employer, he could come into this fired up and score at even better levels than his average.

POD Pick

An average of 630 will scare many off, but a goal last out led to a score of 1700 foe Aaron Ramsey (£8.2m).

If he picks up where he left off, it will be a big score that doesn’t feature in a lot of other teams.

 

Another round down, and just eight more to go now. We continue with a cup-shortened round next weekend, so I will see you back here for that. First, be sure to pick your team for Sunday’s contests.

Good luck!
