Yet again, we place our faith in the hands of a trio of Scout Picks as we look to get one over Paddy Power. Two of the top three midfielders in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game get our backing as does Everton’s fit-again forward as relegation candidates Cardiff roll up to Goodison:

First up, we head to the KC Stadium, where Man City are set for a testing clash against Steve Bruce’s Hull. With Sergio Aguero ruled out through injury once again, Manuel Pellegrini will be relying on Yaya Toure to maintain the form that has already seen him score 13 times in the league this season. The visitors need a win to keep their title bid on track and with Paddy offering 5/1 on the Ivorian to score and City to keep a clean sheet, we’re willing to chuck £3 of this week’s tenner their way.

On to Goodison Park next, where Everton entertain struggling Cardiff City. This time around, Paddy are prepared to offer 6/1 on Romelu Lukaku to score two or more and the Toffees to register a clean sheet. The big Belgian has already notched twice in as many matches since returning from injury and Everton have conceded just once in the last three in front of their own fans. Cardiff may have won 3-1 against Fulham last weekend but let’s not kid ourselves – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side still look like they need a miracle to survive. This one’s our banker of the week, then, with Paddy taking £4 of our kitty.

Our final £3 goes on Southampton’s home game against Norwich. Paddy are offering 6/1 on Adam Lallana to score and Mauricio Pochettino’s side to keep out the travel-sick Canaries. The Saints skipper has scored five of his seven league goals in front of his own fans and considering Chris Hughton’s side have netted just three times in their last six road trips, we’re more than happy to back this outcome.

  1. Lukaku better get big haul today. Be easier to watch Utd match tomorrow then knowing the points are in the bag.

    All set? Armband on Suarez or JRod?

    • 7 months, 12 days ago
    1. I'd go Hazard over those two, but I do fancy Southampton to score at least 2. Suarez is the safe pick.. could go ballistic on any given day.

    Boruc (Adrian)
    Baines . Cahill . Shawx

  11. 12 hours until the deadline.

    Don't forget to enter Elite 64 if around the 1850 points mark or higher.
