PEYMAN PICKS: Gameweek 12


After a week off due to some dramatic World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies we can now shift our focus back to Premier League football and our squads. Fatigue, squad rotation and injuries begin to play a part around this time of year as the Winter looms, but for now it’s back to business with few if any of our FPL stars scathed during the international break.

This week we have some big clashes to look forward to including the Merseyside derby, which kicks off the weekend at Goodison Park. Both Merseyside clubs have impressed this campaign and I expect an entertaining match no doubt with in form strikers Luiz Suarez and Romelu Lukaku set to battle head-to-head. Six of the top eight will clash this weekend allowing for us to begin to see some consistent shape to the table, especially in the top six. This season looks as unpredictable as ever with all of the top clubs in contention for Champions League places and I wouldn’t be surprised if we have some shocking results yet again this weekend with any of the top flight clubs looking susceptible to dropping points at any given time.

  • While working on this collection, we had a conversation trying to figure out why people who start off on a journey or chase their dreams give up prematurely. It was important to get a grasp on this so as to be aware of how to carry on through tough times. We came to realize that what keeps us driven is not only what lies within us, but the little victories that we’ve had along the way. A little victory can be a 14yr old kid from Newcastle posting a YouTube video saying we are his favorite brand ever, or Philadelphia Union defender, Amobi Okugo, lifting up his jersey to reveal a LIVE BREATHE FUTBOL shirt on national tv.
    Whatever they may be, the little victories help reinforce your belief that you’re on the right path. Take a moment to look back and acknowledge them, but don’t dwell on them too long, for the road ahead is long and you must carry on.

    PEYMAN PICKS: Gameweek 10

    After last week’s disappointing return from our midfielders and Arsenal captaincies, we look to this week to bounce back and get our fantasy scoring back on track. While few pounced with the bold decision of captaining Luis Suarez who netted a hat-trick, most other managers missed out on him entirely or opted for captaining either one of Ozil, Giroud or Rooney. At least for me, Rooney saved some blushes, but the hole left in midfield was decisive for many. This week we will be eyeing our scoring hopes on Manchester City as they face a struggling Norwich side. With goalkeeper Joe Hart being axed after yet another dismal and game deciding error last week, managers should look for alternative City defensive cover with the likes of Zabaleta, Demichelis and Clichy all available. This week’s most popular captain’s choice, Kun Aguero will see heavy investment for attacking firepower along with midfielders Silva, Toure, Nasri and Navas all providing service.

  • Perusing the fixtures we notice that both Hull and West Brom have relatively favorable affairs while West Ham host Aston Villa in East London and Spurs travel up to the Northwest to take on the blue half of Merseyside as they face Everton. Although the Tigers talisman Brady is still a doubt after recovering from a hernia operation, he still will remain in many teams’ starting 11 in case he should play, causing concern for Gus Poyet’s Sunderland. Sessegnon remains the attacking threat for West Brom as they play bottom of the league Crystal Palace who are still without a manager. If the Baggies can seize the day, then I would be very surprised if Sessegnon did not have a hand in some goals, which is why he’s made my team of the week.


  • Youngster Ravel Morrison and target striker Christian Benteke are the two to watch at Upton Park if there are to be any goals. I foresee a close encounter and because of that have gone with the home side to take the points. Everton versus Spurs could be a very entertaining match-up as both sides like their free-flowing attacking style of football with the latter taking a bit more conservative approach unlike their former manager Redknapp. However, I do see goals in this one and with Lukaku always bearing a threat when in form while the likes of Soldado, Townsend, Eriksen and Sigurdsson provide attacking options for Spurs, it’s hard to determine the winner here, which is why I’m picking another home win for the in form Blues or a draw at the very least.

    Finally we look to Sunday’s marquee match up between table toppers Arsenal and newly revived Liverpool. Both teams will be looking to make their mark against opponents in the top four and this tie sets up the occasion perfectly. Arsenal were convincingly beaten mid-week in their League Cup affair with Chelsea at the Emirates, but by their line-up changes, they were surely looking ahead to this weekend’s encounter with high-rising Liverpool. Both teams have been conceding goals, but offensively they are two of the highest scoring in the league thus far, only trailing Manchester City by one and four goals respectively. Therefore as we take a look at scoring potential we can’t look past form players such as Suarez and Sturridge for Liverpool and Ozil, Ramsey and Giroud for Arsenal. It shall be interesting to see that with the return of Coutinho into Liverpool’s line-up, if he’ll boost the strike partnership of Suarez/Sturridge even more with his creative play and service in the number 10 slot just as Ozil has for the Gunners.
