We begin our Gameweek 10 picks with one of the Premier League iconic striker, as Sergio Aguero is poised to return to the goals this weekend, as Manchester City’s record goal-scorer faces Aston Villa.
As Citizens’ boss Pep Guardiola has nursed the Argentinian through a niggling injury during the opening games of the season, Aguero has not scored a league goal for City since Gameweek 6’s 8-0 demolition of Watford.
With Gabriel Jesus having deputised up top for the most part of the last three outings, Aguero has claimed just a single assist in a month. However, after his brace against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, the City talisman is primed to pounce.
Despite the Villlans romping to a four-goal win over Norwich in their last away day, Dean Smith has seen his men concede three on two separate occasions this term, and with the hosts looking to keep up the pressure on Liverpool, Aguero may be in for his biggest point haul of the new campaign.
You can’t keep a good man down from our Fantasy Premier League picks, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang barges his way into the Gameweek 10 reckoning, as Arsenal face Crystal Palace on home turf.
As one of Britwatch’s regular fixtures to shine, the Gabonese took a week out last time out on the road to Sheffield United, but as the Gunners look to respond from defeat, Aubameyang will be champing at the bit to recommence his prolific ways in front of goal.
Rested for his side’s latest Emirates rollercoaster against Vitoria Guimaraes on Thursday evening, Aubameyang, with already his sights on another Golden Boot battle this term will look to increase on his tally of seven against the Eagles.
It almost seems a moot point to mention the Gunners’ problems in defence – more worryingly at home – but as Arsenal look to get their teeth into a Palace side that have already won at Old Trafford and the London Stadium, you can almost guarantee goals in equal measure at both ends of the field. Here, Aubameyang should oblige.
After back-to-back league defeats, West Ham United will look to Felipe Anderson to get the Irons back on track in Gameweek 10, against a Sheffield United side that could suffer something of a hangover after victory over Arsenal on Monday night.
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini wil be hoping for as much, with the Hammers yet to catch fire in any consistent way thus far in 2019/20. When they have, East London’s resident Brazilian schemer has been central to those efforts, and could be in the points this weekend.
Anderson may only have three assists to his name this term, but has been one of the top flight’s most creative outlets and has often been in and around the bonus points reckoning – perhaps the Brazilian’s key facet last season.
Since their stunning Gameweek 5 defeat of the champions, the Norwich City bubble has not just popped but floated off into the floated off into the distance also. However, as Manchester United take their away-day show on the road once more, Todd Cantwell might be the man to make the difference on Sunday afternoon.
On the back of three successive league defeats – before last weekend’s surprising goalless draw with AFC Bournemouth, having very much seen their Premier League return honeymoon end – Teemu Pukki has also hit a barren spell without a goal in four. In fact, the Canaries’ only goal in 360 top flight minutes has come from Swiss substitute Josip Drmic – albeit in the Norfolk side’s hammering to Villa.
Without the Finnish striker’s goal, Daniel Farke has seen his men slip down the table to a rather more realistic vantage point. The Red Devils roll up to Carrow Road as perhaps the perfect remedy to a difficult spell for the hosts and their homegrown talent might be chief benefactor.
Cantwell had Norwich’s unsung hero in their opening five-game run dalliance with the top six, and faced with United’s rather thorny defensive issues – particularly on the right hand side, Cantwell is ready to break back onto the fantasy scene in Gameweek 10, already armed with a goal and a trio of assists.
Slowly but surely there are signs of life Premier League life in Hertfordshire. After an horrendous start to the new season, two draws on the bounce have seen Watford almost double their points tally with their back line responsible, no least the reintroduction of Daryl Janmaat to Quique Sanchez Flores’ defence.
With Kiko Femenia having held down the right-back spot for much of the duration of Javi Gracia’s tenure, the Dutch full-back has forced his way back into the starting XI – after an unfortunate own goal against Wolves last month.
Keeping a tight ship will now be the priority for Watford, who were denied a second successive clean sheet last weekend at Spurs, via Dele Alli’s controversial late equaliser. Nevertheless, Janmaat has been central to the seeds of optimism.
As documented, retaining a shut out at Vicarage Road against the Blades, Janmaat laid on the assist for Abdoulaye Doucoure’s opener at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and has taken maximum bonus points for the last two Gameweeks running.
Consistently will now be the key to Watford’s hopes of climbing out of danger and that may yet prove to be a something of a sore point, but in the short term at least, a visiting clash against a Cherries outfit who have not scored in the last two games, could result in another tight game on Saturday.
Premier League Gameweek 10 begins on Friday evening, as Southampton host Leicester City, kick-off 20:00 UK time.
