The Dugout Discussion – Saturday

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Mark

Saturday continues with five afternoon kick-offs, before Man City see us out with the first of their two Gameweek fixtures in the evening encounter at Goodison.

Before that, Fantasy managers will be focused firmly on Old Trafford, as Ryan Giggs’ continues his tenure as United boss with an intriguing clash with Sunderland. The home side will look to build on the 4-0 thrashing of Norwich last time out, while the Black Cats turn up, scrapping for their Premier League lives and, in Connor Wickham, boasting a striker with five goals in his last three outings.

Elsewhere, both Villa and Hull get their double Gameweeks underway in the midlands, while Newcastle look to halt a slide of five straight defeats at home to relegation threatened Cardiff. Fulham share similar concerns but make the trip to Stoke in hope of furthering their chances of survival. Finally, Swansea take on Southampton at the Liberty Stadium, with Wilfried Bony looking to maintain a scoring streak of four in his last two league matches. Then, City take over with their promising tea-time clash with the Toffees on Merseyside.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
