Our picks for the Premier League action this weekend


Some tough, potentially season defining fixtures await us over the next few months as we approach the last ten rounds of fixtures of the season.

With Manchester City visiting the Emirates and then hosting Chelsea at the Etihad, there could be some absolute fireworks – here are our the players we think could be the difference makers!

Hugo Lloris, Tottenham Hotspur

A key member of the third tightest defence in the league, Lloris’s Spurs face a Huddersfield side that have just 25 goals in 28 league games.

With 12 clean sheets this season, he’ll be expectant that he can build upon that.

Ben Davies, Tottenham Hotspur

Another member of a phenomenal Spurs defence, Davies as also established himself as a potent attacking force with two goals and five assists.

The Lilywhites have an exceptional home record and it with the Terriers having conceded 48 goals this season it could well be a positive weekend at Wembley.

Andrew Robertson, Liverpool

Having had to be patient for opportunities at the beginning of the season, the Scot has firmly secured a place within the Liverpool defence now.

With 27 points from his 15 games that have yielded six assists and two goals, Robertson is quickly building a reputation as the man that can finally sort Liverpool’s longstanding ;eft back issues.

Phil Jones, Manchester United

United have been through a patchy run of form recently but they will be buoyed by a significant result over fellow top four competitors Chelsea.

Jones has culminated 58 points this season, thanks in part to the limited number of goals the team has conceded, and will be hopeful of further points in Monday’s journey to Selhurst Park.

Stephen Ward, Burnley

Burnley have stopped the rot of a poor 2018 in recent weeks with a couple of draws and a restoration of their tenacious defensive endeavour is to thank for that.

Ward has managed 42 points thus far this season, embodying their defensive work rate, and could well build on that with his side hosting an inconsistent Everton side.

Mo Salah, Liverpool

So exceptional has his goal-scoring record been this season that it’s almost a surprise when he doesn’t hit the net.

With 23 goals in 25 appearances during his maiden campaign for the Reds, an expectant Kop awaits him this weekend as the Magpies come to town.

Mesut Ozil, Arsenal

A tough fixture against Manchester City awaits Arsenal in the midweek, however they then have what should be a potentially easier task of travelling to Brighton on Sunday.

Ozil has 38 points from four goals and seven assists this season and the prospect of two fixtures means he should build upon these this week.

Roberto Firmino, Liverpool

The Liverpool attacker has had a phenomenal 2017/18 campaign this season and comes up against a Newcastle United side that have struggled for form for the most part.

With Liverpool boasting an exceptional home record this season, it seems probable that he can add to his tally of 13 goals and six assists this campaign.

Raheem Sterling, Manchester City

The goals may have dried up a little for the Englishman in recent weeks but Sterling has proven categorically that he knows how to find the back of the net.

With him likely to play a part in both of City’s games this week, it seems likely that he will be another to build on a fine points record – having already secured 88 points so far.

Sergio Aguero, Manchester City

Like the other City and Arsneal players, it makes sense to include him in your picks due to them having two games this weekend.

With 21 goals and 99 points, you can pretty much guarantee he’ll have built on one of these even if he comes up against some tough opponents.

Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur

At home to a Huddersfield side that have struggled on the road, Kane will be licking his lips at the prospect of adding to his phenomenal goal tally of 24 thus far this season.

On 96 points for the season, the Englishman will be vying to become only the second man after Liverpool’s Mo Salah to break the triple digit barrier.
