All odds, ownership, and price optics were correct at the time of writing.

Willock
2.32
£
£4.90 | Midfielder for Newcastle

  • Willock has 5 goals in his last five games for Newcastle without blanking in any of those.
  • Since GW30, only Chris Wood (6) and Greenwood (6) have scored more goals than him even though he’s missed two games and only started twice.
  • In the same period, Newcastle have scored 15 goals against the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool, Leicester, and Man City with no other team scoring more.
  • This week they face Sheffield Utd (H) who have the leagues worst clean sheets record whilst also ranking within the top three for most goals conceded.

Kane
4.41
%
£11.90 | Attacker for Tottenham

  • Kane was back in the goals last round and picked up 6 points for his owners as Tottenham beat Wolves 2-0.
  • He’s now had 11 attacking returns in as many games (9G, 2A) with only Iheanacho being more prolific (12).
  • Tottenham face Aston Villa (H) next who are winless in their last three games including a 3-2 defeat last round to Crystal Palace.
  • Spurs have won their last six games against Villa, scoring 15 goals whilst only conceding 4.
  • Kane himself scored in the reverse fixture and boast an impressive 7 goals and 2 assists in his last eight meetings against them.

Harrison
3.28
£
£5.60 | Midfielder for Leeds

  • Harrison has 1 goal, 3 assists, and 28 points over the last five GW’s with no other Leeds player returning more.
  • In that period, he’s also created 13 chances, and had 4 shots on target - both of which are team-leading totals.
  • Leeds have scored 7 goals in their last two games and they finish off the season against two of the teams who have conceded the most goals in the league: Southampton (A) and West Brom (H).
  • Leeds won the reverse fixture against Southampton 3-0 and they are favorites to do so again this time around.




Captaincy Candidates


Many players have the potential to be good captain picks but here are the ones on our watchlist.


The first candidate is Kane .


He has a decent home fixture against Aston Villa who are winless in their last three games including a 3-2 defeat last round to Crystal Palace.


Tottenham have also won their last six games against Villa, scoring 15 times - and Kane himself has an impressive 7 goals and 2 assists in his last eight meetings against them.


Kane is one of the bookmakers’ favorites to score this round (54%) and Tottenham are also among the favorites to score the most goals.


The second candidate is Salah .


He has returned attacking points in each of his last six starts (5G, 1A) and could extend that run of form this week against Burnley (A) who lost their most recent game 4-0.


Liverpool have won their last three games at Turf Moor and this week they are favorites to do so again - but they are also the odds-on favorites to score the most goals.


Salah has been given a 64% chance of scoring this week and currently, no other player ranks higher than him.
