Liverpool kick-off the weekend's fixture list with trip to Sheffield United who have lost their last two home games. The Reds will look to continue their fine start to the season and #sfpl managers could well be loading their sides up with Liverpool attacking players as you wouldn't bet against an away win here which would make it 16 straight wins in a row.
Hot on the heals of Liverpool in second are Manchester City how are also on the road this weekend. Everton are on a poor run at present and a rested Sergio Aguero could well pick up more goals in this one as City look to make it three wins in a row at Goodison.
On Monday night, one of the seasons biggest games takes place as Manchester United host Arsenal. The statistics tell us that The Gunners have not won a game at Old Trafford since 2006, but with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw injured, this season looks like an ideal opportunity to end that poor run for the away side.
Both Wolverhampton and Watford have yet to win a game this season and they clash at on Saturday afternoon. Expect this one to be fiercely competitive as both teams fight for a priceless 3 points.
Southampton travel to Tottenham with a poor record, having lost the last 7 games away to Spurs in all competitions. Harry Kane, amongst others, was rested in the week and has a superb record against The Saints - one he looks set to continue at the weekend.
Chelsea, still looking for their first home league win of the season, face Brighton, at team their beat convincingly at Stamford Bridge last season. Hudson-Odoi looks set for a starting position, but eyes will be on Abraham to add to his tally of 7 league goals already this season.
The Steem Fantasy League
Seven points cover the first ten in the #sfpl and there is still a long way to go until May. Perhaps by then the price of STEEM will have recovered and the prize pool will look rather tasty!
Sergio Aguero tops the points chart but is surprisingly only selected by 29.7% of Fantasy League managers. Pukki, selected by 44.9% managers is 5.1 million cheaper and has only four fewer points and perhaps this is one of the reasons why.
Abraham and De Bruyne top the list of players coming into sides this week, and looking at their price and their sides opposition it is not hard to see why.
The players cut this week are topped by the injured Marcus Rashford who won't face Arsenal on Monday evening. Surprises in the list include Raheem Sterling and Mane, who are both fit (if you believe the reports) and face weak looking opposition. Will they be rested though?
Best of luck with your selections this week!
