A bonus mid-week game on Wednesday night is here to keep you on your toes, and also to cover for the EFL Cup final in a couple of weeks.
Not ones to be caught out, PlayON have still have Daily Fantasy offerings for the game and plenty of chances to win prizes. To increase those chances, I have picked out my best players for the game for you DFS sides.
Everton v. Man City
These two were on opposite ends of 3-1 scorelines last out – Everton losing to Wolves while City triumphed over Arsenal, meaning they go top with a win here, albeit having played a game more than Liverpool.
These squads have met 43 times at this level and in terms of wins it’s pretty close at 18-16 Everton. City have won the last two by 3-1 scorelines however, and in current form you probably can’t look past them, or their players for DFS, in this one.
Apparently, 1.4% of the first minute goals in Premier League history have been scored by Sergio Aguero (£16.5m), and both came in the last two games.
Following up his first minute effort against Arsenal with two more, his tenth league hat trick, the Argentine now has 14 goals for the season and a PlayON average of 1520.
With Benjamin Mendy likely to start this one from the bench, your best bet for a value play is understudy Danilo (£6.8m).
Whilst deputising, the full back has amassed an average over 800, tasty for the price, and had picked up a goal along the way. Against a Toffees side that are prone to concede, there is a good chance of an attacking stat for him here. If he nabs one, the score could go well above his current average and pricing.
The average of 510 might scare a few away, but Aymeric Laporte (£7.2m) is all but guaranteed a full game here and a good chance of a clean sheet. I was also reliably told that Marco Silva in the Premier League concedes about half his goals from set plays. If Laporte gets forward for those, he could benefit in this one.
Short and sweet for this one. Head to the Games Lobby and get your teams in and then there isn’t too much of a wait until the next round starts on the weekend.
