Adam Jones averages a fairly impressive 43 points in the last two Weekender Game Weeks but this one is a little trickier to tackle.

West Brom are whipping boys for everyone at the moment so he’s gone for Bournemouth duo Asmir Begovic and Callum Wilson in goal and up top respectively.

It’s an all Liverpool backline of Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson against Watford, with the former a real Star Man merchant.

In midfield the returning Wilfried Zaha gets the nod, whilst he’s also backing Leicester and, in particular, Riyad Mahrez to outshine Chelsea in the FA Cup on Sunday.


Up front Wilson is joined by Romelu Lukaku, who scored twice in Man United’s last FA Cup outing at Huddersfield.


Meanwhile, Michael Golson has opted for in-form Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius between the sticks, behind an all-Spurs backline of Jan Vertonghen and Ben Davies ahead of their FA Cup clash with Swansea.

In midfield, Palace’s Luka Milivojevic is often a good call for a goal or two – especially with his penalty-taking credentials – and he’s picked alongside Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, whose points and goals tally this season speaks for itself.


Up front, there’s an all English duo with Marcus Rashford and Jamie Vardy.
