With the Champions League’s return, difficult decisions of who starts and who is rested begin once again. Many managers have given up on second-guessing the team sheet from reigning champions Manchester City, with Julian Alvarez being the most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 6.
The Smarkets betting markets are offering traders the chance to back him, with Alvarez to score over 6.5 points. However, managers will have to be careful because each week’s most-bought player has so far failed to deliver a big return.
In the Saturday night slot, Manchester United will be trying to get their stuttering campaign back on track. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will once again be looking to lead the charge and you can pit them against each other in a head-to-head bet. Rashford is the favourite at 1.54 (8/15).
NORTH LONDON THOUGHTS
Meanwhile, Arsenal and Spurs meet for the season’s first north London derby, with Ange Postecoglu bringing a revival similar to that of his red counterpart Mikel Arteta. After two losses in last year’s clashes, Spurs will be hoping for better with a new talisman running the show.
James Maddison has delivered over 5.5 points in three of his first five matches and is 2.30 (13/10) to keep that good start going. Or will Martin Odegaard lead his team to victory and keep the winning streak alive? At 3.30 (23/10) to go over 6.5 points, Arsenal and Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers will be watching him closely.
