It seems the real Manchester United are back, or at least to their former incarnation under Sir Alex Ferguson and after putting five past AFC Bournemouth last time out, the Red Devils’ front line has a new ingredient to it in the form of Mason Greenwood.
Spoken of in the highest of regard within the United fanbase, last year the 18-year-old was little more than a bit-part player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but as the Norwegian looks to put his own stamp on his tenure at the club, Greenwood now looks a pivotal part of his plans.
With himself, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial forming the front three ahead of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba – three of the four finding the target against Bournemouth – the England U21 starlet has truly began to spread his wings, and his brace against the Cherries included two finishes of the highest order.
Greenwood’s dirt-cheap price of 4.5 makes his ownership something a must for the remainder of the campaign and with eight league goals this season, his pursuit of double figures continues against Aston Villa in Gameweek 34+.
Whilst Dean Smith‘s men continue to scrap for every point, the Villans are yet to win a game since the restart and the arrival of the Red Devils will curry no favour.
The visitors meanwhile have netted 12 times since the resumption and with Villa likely to realise attack may be the best form of defence here, Greenwood may be filling his fantasy boots once more.
Tottenham Hotspur continue to splutter under Jose Mourinho. After defeat to Sheffield United however, Spurs returned to winning ways with an unconvincing 1-0 win over Everton but as the North Londoners travel to the Vitality in Gameweek 34+, Harry Kane is primed to heap misery on Eddie Howe.
Fully fit after the COVID-19 break, Kane still looks far from his sharpest after injury but managed to add a silver lining to the Lilywhites’ loss in Yorkshire, making it goals in back-to-back games.
The English skipper may not be at his imperious best, but Kane will be sniffing the chance to add to his tally of 13 goals during his injury-curtailed season, against the Cherries’ fragile back line.
Putting up a plucky showing at Old Trafford, Howe may see this as one of the last chances to mount a survival bid, but to attempt to do so will surely require three points. That plays handsomely into Tottenham hands.
Still retaining an ethic of counter-attack to their game, even a Mourinho side in its’ current guise has the tools in its’ ranks to cause Bournemouth considerable pain. Indeed, Kane could be captain’s armband material this week.
Watford appear to have slipped back into their old ways before the arrival of Nigel Pearson. The Hornets however, still find themselves a point outside the relegation zone and as Norwich roll into Vicarage Road, Craig Dawson could be an enticing option for Gameweek 34+.
Taking just a point in four games, the Hertfordshire side will surely see this as the perfect opportunity to pull what could be four points clear of the drop zone on Tuesday evening.
With the visiting Canaries looking resigned to their fate, Daniel Farke‘s charges arrive in the knowledge they have not scored on the road since late January, whilst having a further weakness at corner kicks. That sees the Watford defence as the way to go this Gameweek.
In the case of Dawson in particular, the veteran centre-back has often been a source of points from set-pieces for his former club West Brom and his late, late goal versus Leicester two weeks back underlined his still lingering aerial presence, requiring consideration for this Gameweek.
The hosts may be looking for a solid if unspectacular showing here and even without Dawson’s threat in attack, Watford look good for a clean sheet at the very least. Dawson could make his minority 0.2% owners very happy indeed.
After Manchester City’s somewhat surprise 1-0 defeat to Southampton – days after humbling the new Premier League champions – the Citizens welcome Newcastle United to the Etihad Stadium and we are tipping Phil Foden to catch the eye.
Still somewhat a risk in terms of his likelihood of a starting XI berth, Foden – much like international compatriot Greenwood – is slowly starting to be given more Premier League minutes by boss Pep Guardiola, and after Manchester City’s St. Marys’ loss, may be in for more game-time in midweek.
Since Sergio Aguero sustained a knee injury – coupled with Gabriel Jesus‘ drought in front of goal – City have been able to experiment in playing Raheem Sterling in a number nine role, allowing Guardiola to use more of his creative players in midfield.
Foden has been one of the chief beneficiaries of the move and starred in his side’s 5-0 thrashing of Burnley in Gameweek 30+, together with grabbing a goal and an assist against the Reds. Having netted four times since resumption, the 20-year-old’s fantasy stock is rising rapidly, and at 5.4 is now worth serious thought – his price having rising from 5.0.
As City return to home comforts against an improving Newcastle, Guardiola may look to generate more creativity in midfield and after playing just 31 minutes on the South coast, Foden looks a good shot for a starting berth here. In line to reward his growing number of fantasy owners.
To wrap up Gameweek 34+’s tips we look to West Ham’s improving plight in the lower echelons of the Premier League table and to a player who though brought a scoff from many rival league fans on his arrival from Hull City, Jarrod Bowen has been indirectly responsible for the Hammers’s consistent rescue mission.
Having played all but 13 minutes of the Londoners’ four games since lockdown, the former Tiger has become a key player for David Moyes and has notched three assists in the last two outings.
Aiding Michail Antonio in rediscovering his goal-scoring touch, Bowen his given the Irons a real injection of pace, skill and above all energy that has been sadly lacking for most of the campaign for West Ham.
As Burnley come to town for a Claret and Blue clash, the hosts will be keen to add to their four points from a possible six, knowing every further point garnered now will steer them closer to safety.
Bowen scored his only Premier League goal so far in Gameweek 28, but with West Ham’s potency in attack looking to have returned and with the Lancashire outfit’s troubles on the road this term, the offensive midfielder could be a very handy source of points this midweek.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 34+ deadline is Tuesday, 17:00 UK time.
