Anyway if there was ever a weekend to listen to our tips it’s this one, with plenty of high profile players likely to be rested.
With that in mind, here’s five we’re backing to shine who would make great Weekender picks…
1 Gabriel Jesus
Mr cup competitions looks a sure thing as Manchester City host Burnley.
Jesus has smashed seven goals in his last three games and was rested for the trip to Burton in midweek.
2 Gonzalo Higuain
Welcome to England, Gonzalo, we’ve been waiting for you.
It feels like Higuain has been linked with a Premier League move since the introduction of the transfer window, and now he’s finally here.
The Argentine will surely make his Chelsea debut against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday.
West Ham’s number two number one should start at AFC Wimbledon with Lukasz Fabianski given a rest.
And Wimbledon really are quite poor, so we fancy Adrian to keep a clean sheet.
4 Will Hughes
Javi Gracia has confirmed Watford midfielder Hughes is fully fit again after a recent knock and could start against Newcastle.
We love a case of history repeating itself and the Hornets star scored a beauty in the 3-0 win at St James’ Park last season…
5 Ademola Lookman
Everton travel to Millwall on Saturday afternoon and Lookman has been in and out of the team in the last month.
The Toffees are struggling for form but the young winger could be the man to give them a lift.
