Togga Perfect XI | PXI – GW17

It may feel like the title race is already over but it’s fast and furious in terms of Premier League action, with the second set of mid-week fixtures in three weeks. Rotations remain the key concern for Perfect XI managers this round so we have tried to look out for players whom we think are un-droppable. The current top SIX in the Premier League all have winnable games, so perhaps it is about picking out which teams are likely to score more. 

Goalkeepers

  • David De Gea (MUN) – Despite a stinging defeat against City, De Gea looks well-placed for a clean sheet this week.
  • Hugo Lloris (TOT) – Brighton have only scored 5 in 8 away games so will likely approach this visit to Wembley defensively.

Alternatively –>

  • Simon Mignolet (LIV) – Didn’t have to do much against Everton, not likely to be called into action much here against WBA but good chance for a clean sheet.

Defenders

  • Milner, James (LIV) – Milner may be played at left-back or in center midfield. Either way, he looks good for PXI points.
  • Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) – Chelsea only have one clean sheet in their last four, but Azpilicueta can play either at the wings or at center-back so is well worth the pick.
  • Jan Vertonghen (TOT) – Spurs will likely rotate their wing-backs so if you cannot monitor that situation, pick Vertonghen.
  • James Tarkowski (BUR) – With his defensive partners doubtful, go for Tarkowski – Burnley’s top-scoring defender this term
  • Antonio Valencia (MNU) – Top points scoring United defender and as a team captain, will surely start.

Alternatively

  • Harry Maguire (LEI) – Have started all of Leicester’s 16 games thus far and the Foxes are playing well right now.

Midfielders

  • Eden Hazard (CHE) – Had a miserable game at West Ham but  can be trusted to perform against Huddersfield.
  • Philip Coutinho (LIV) – The mercurial Brazilian was rested against Everton but made an impact when he came on. Klopp will not make the same mistake again – Coutinho will and must start for the Reds.
  • Kevin de Bruyne (MCI) – The top-scoring midfielder in the game by a mile.
  • Aaron Ramsey (ARS) – The Welshman is slowly and surely picking up the fantasy points.

Alternatively

  • Matt Ritchie (NEW) – Newcastle are not playing well at the moment but alot will come from Ritchie’s set-pieces if they do attack.

Forwards

  • Salah, Mohamed (LIV) – A bit of a boring pick, yes, but his goal-scoring record at the moment cannot be ignored.
  • Kane, Harry (TOT) – Two against Stoke and his confidence is back!

Alternatively

  • Richarlison (WAT) – Palace is coming off a morale damaging 2-2 draw and Watford can capitalise.
  • Lukaku, Romelu (MNU) – Going through an absolutely wrenched run of form but he usually scores against teams like Bournemouth.

  1. Great write-up as always! Just looking for some guidance this week: 10 man Togga draft league format. Available players are slim pickings. I welcome any advice you can give:
    3-4-3
    Keeper: Lloris
    Defenders: Tripier, Monreal, Charlie Daniels(Phil Jones, if he gets the nod)
    Midfielders: Xhaka,Tadic,Ritchie,Son Hueng-Min
    Forwards: Jesus,Kane,Sterling
    Bench: Fabianski,Phil Bardsley,Phil Jones,Kyle Naughton,Chuopo-Moting

    Jesus will most likely be a sub. I assume Aguero will play at least 75 minutes(unless he can’t breakdown the Swans defense by halftime.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    • Hi Andrew. Fairly strong team you have there. Only advice to add is are there any United players available on FA or trade? United have a few easy games coming up – worth the picks!
