Daily Fantasy Premier League Preview: 13 Jan

Another day, another lot of Premier League games and the Gameweek 22 action continues into Sunday.

The action never stops at PlayON either and they are back with DFS offerings for the day’s games. To help you with those, I have identified my best DFS plays from each of the games below, from must-have guns to money-saving value plays, with a sneaky POD pick thrown in where possible to set you even further apart from the competition.

Everton v. Bournemouth

Not good reading for either side in recent weeks, with just one win apiece in the last five. They sit currently level on points just in the lower half of the table, having each shown early promise of being potential competitors for European places.

Seven games between the sides at this level have produced three Toffees’ wins, two for the Cherries and two draws, including the 2-2 in the reverse game this season.

Hard to split them when both appear to be in ruts. The one thing I would back is their shaky defences, so avoiding the defenders for PlayON purposes is the play here.

Gun

Another goal last out, taking him to nine goals and eight assists so far, Callum Wilson (£11.4m) is on track for a good season.

Averaging around the 1300 mark, if given a chance he could punish an Everton defence with just four clean sheets to their name.

Value Pick

With nine goals himself, and priced under $10m, Richarlison (£9.8m) shapes as good value for this one. The goals have been spread nicely across the season so no real dry spells to worry about.

POD Pick

Off the mark for the Toffees in the cup game, Bernard (£5.7m) also has four assists to his name in the league.

The average of 610 will scare a few off, but if he gets the start here there is potential for a few points to be earned.

Tottenham v. Man United

Big game this. The first real test of the Solskjær era as United travel to the capital to face third-placed Spurs. Both sides come into this in form, with four wins each from their last five and plenty of goals.

Two top flight ever-presents, the sides have clashed 53 times on this stage. The Red Devils lead 33-9 in terms of wins, but this is a different United and a different Spurs. In fact, the hosts have won the last two of these without conceding.

The visitors have looked a different prospect under the new manager so it is hard to pick a winner. With United having just three clean sheets all season though, my PlayON selections for this would be weighted towards attack-minded players across the two teams.

Gun

Move over Harry Kane! Son Heung-Min (£13.1m) is flying atop the Spurs PlayON averages. Currently going at about 50 points a game better than Kane while costing almost £4m less, the South Korean scored and assisted against Cardiff last out to move to eight goals and seven assists for the season.

Still a bit of time until he leaves for the Asian Cup, he is worth going for in this one.

Value Pick

Resurgent under the new boss, Paul Pogba (£12.3m) suddenly has seven goals and seven assists and a PlayON average of 1880. Even at his higher pricing, that still serves as a steal.

Benefitting from a more advanced role, he would be among the favourites to be involved in any goals for the Red Devils here.

POD Pick

A risky POD play here. But that usually means if it does come off, you can almost guarantee they’ll be in barely any teams.

To say Alexis Sánchez (£10.5m) has had a quiet season is a massive understatement. However, if he can be hit by the ‘Solskjær effect’ his history speaks for his ability. He did come off the bench to nab an assist against Newcastle in round 21.

 

That draws Sunday to a close, once you head to the Games Lobby and enter your teams that is. One game to go in the round as Monday night football returns for 2019.

Good luck!
