Togga Perfect XI | PXI – GW25 picks

With Chelsea looking more and more like the runaway leaders, GW25 leaves us with some interesting choices after a disastrous GW24, when the usual suspects didn’t quite gave us the returns we were hoping for.

Bournemouth v Manchester City
Arsenal v Hull City
Burnley v Chelsea
Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur
Manchester United v Watford
Middlesbrough v Everton
Stoke City v Crystal Palace
Sunderland v Southampton
Swansea City v Leicester City
West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion

Stay Away From

  • Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur

One team is in the (almost) worst form in its club history having lost 4 of their last 5 games, while the other has won 7 out of the last 9 league games. Having said that, both teams are still in the chasing pack and the game could still go either way. Too close to call.

  • West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion

Both teams have won 3 of their last 5 league games and are sitting comfortably in mid-table mediocrity. This is probably the best they can hope for and either side will be happy with a draw. This has all the markings of a snooze fest.

 

Take Note

  • Burnley v Chelsea

Chelsea’s last loss came during the turn of the year at the hands of Spurs. Since then they have won 5 of their 6 games in all competitions, with margins of 2 goals or more. The only dent in that record came at the expense of the draw against Liverpool. Burnley should put up little or no resistance in Chelsea’s title charge.

  • Bournemouth v Manchester City

Bournemouth have not won in their last 5 league outings and are on the back of a 6-3 loss to Everton. Manchester City have a habit of steamrolling over lesser opponents. This is a relatively easy stretch of games for Manchester City having won against Crystal Palace, West Ham and Swansea. Bournemouth shouldn’t prove too much of a challenge for Manchester City to continue their run.

 

GK

  1. Courtois, Thibaut (CHE) – Chelsea boasts of the stingiest away defence in the league and this should be an easy clean sheet. The safe bet of the week.
  2. Robles, Joel (EVE) – Thanks to an injury to Stekelenburg, the lad has stepped up and grabbed his chance by the horns. A clean is possible this week along with some points from saves.

 

DEF

  1. Alonso, Marcus (CHE) – Best performing defender in PXI who occasionally pops up with a goal. He will be in everyone’s team for GW25.
  2. Koscielny, Laurent (ARS) – Arsenal haven’t managed a clean sheet in their last 3 league outings but if you believe they can turn things around he is the man to have.
  3. Valencia, Antonio (MAN) – A confirmed starter with a relatively easy game against Watford.
  4. Azpilicueta, Cesar (CHE) – A consistent performer, he’s there if you want to load up on Chelsea’s defenders.
  5. Kone, Lamine (SUN) – Kone seems to have come to life in recent weeks. A home game against Southampton would be good for him to keep his streak going.

 

MID

  1. Hazard, Eden (CHE) – Picked up a knock against Arsenal, he will have to pass a late fitness test. If certified fit, a must have in your squad.
  2. Pogba, Paul (MAN) – Usually does well against the minnows, against Watford seems like a match made for him.
  3. Ozil, Mesut (ARS) – Time for the gunners to turn things around? Ozil is the man to lead that charge.
  4. De Bruyne. Kevin (MCI) – The must-have in Manchester City’s lineup.
  5. Sigurdsson, Gylfi (SWA) – Takes corners, free kicks and is on penalty duty, facing a side with no win and no clean sheet away.
  6. Barkley, Ross (EVE) – A confirmed starter who is just starting to get into his stride, an alternative pick to consider.

 

FWD

  1. Sanchez, Alexis (ARS) – His team is not doing well, however do we really expect Hull to be able to keep 3 consecutive clean sheets?
  2. Ibrahimovic, Zlatan (MAN) – Has a tendency to score in consecutive matches, Watford should prove to be easy prey.
  3. Jesus, Gabriel (MCI) – Not quite a confirmed starter, he’s a game day decision if you are interested.
  4. Lukaku, Romelu (EVE) – Boro has stubborn defence but Lukaku is in fine form. An alternative pick if you can’t risk putting Jesus in your squad.
