Dream Team Weekender.
Yes, after a truly astonishing week of European action it’s time to return to the bread and butter of the Premier League.
So what’s Weekender all about? And how do you get involved?
Well, all you need to do is pick SEVEN players from the upcoming Saturday and Sunday games, with no transfer budget and no limit to the number of players you can pick from one club.
It’s free to enter and there’s even a rather snazzy £5k jackpot to be won this weekend.
Over the next couple of days we’ve got mouthwatering fixtures like champions-elect Man City’s trip to Spurs and Chelsea and Southampton’s clash on the south coast.
So who are our experts picking? And do you reckon you can do any better?
Well with Man United up against West Brom, it’s no surprise to see Michael Golson opt for David de Gea in goal, coupled with last weekend’s Manchester derby hero Chris Smalling.
Alongside Smalling is Chelsea’s goal-hungry wing-back Marcos Alonso, who could fancy himself against relegation-threatened Southampton on Saturday morning.
Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – who both featured in the Champions League win over Man City midweek – make the midfield, with goal-hungry Harry Kane and the ever-improving Alexis Sanchez starting up front.
Adam Jones has also gone down the United route, picking De Gea, Smalling and Antonio Valencia as his defensive options.
Mane is also in Adam’s plans whilst he’s opted for Willian to do the damage against Southampton.
Up front he’s put faith in Romelu Lukaku and Jamie Vardy to put the ball in the back of the net.
