A low scoring gameweek was not what most managers had in mind as the average score stood a low 40 points. Most premium players failed to deliver and this was the main reason why almost everybody ended up clocking menial scores. Manchester City’s Yaya Toure started his first match this season after his agent’s feud with Guardiola and the Ivory Coast international did not disappoint the manager, as he scored the winner against Crystal Palace.
Arsenal again could not get a win against United at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Olivier Giroud’s late 89th-minute header gave the Gunners fans a sigh of relief as they salvaged a draw after going a goal down which was scored by Juan Mata in the second half as well. Liverpool also managed to drop points as their match against Southampton ended up a goalless draw. London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea won their respective matches and the Blues are now top of the league.
Here are 5 players we believe could do well in the coming gameweek:
#5 Philippe Coutinho
The Brazilian has now truly regained match fitness and should be a definite inclusion in your team. His form this season has been stellar and he has amassed a total of 31 points in the last 4 gameweeks bar the Southampton game where Liverpool drew a blank. Under Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool midfield has combined brilliantly and Coutinho has been one of their key players.
Coutinho is also a big threat from set pieces and this makes him an added threat. A fixture against Sunderland should be a walk in the park for Liverpool but at the same time you can never underestimate a team in the English Premier League.
Next 3 fixtures: Sunderland(H), Bournemouth(A), West Ham(H)
