Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard could be on his way out of the club, with Spanish side Real Madrid keeping a very close eye on developments. The Belgian skipper is the most likely addition to the struggling La Liga club – though a winter move does not seem as feasible, a summer move seems ideal for the player and his intended side.
The Premier League is back on an intense run just after the international break and a couple of changes in the fantasy squad can help improve the score. Some of the top tips for the fantasy football teams are:
The Chelsea defender has been an ever present for Maurizio Sarri’s men. He has also been quite consistent after forming a good partnership with David Luiz. Chelsea’s defence still leads to improve a lot, but Sarri tends to go for a stable back line all the time. This coupled with Chelsea competing at the top makes Rudiger a good selection.
With the Premier League complete its eighth gameweek, a number of players have excelled with their performances on the playing field and among those, we look into four of them who could provide handy fantasy points in the forthcoming fixtures following the international break.
The Brazil international has enjoyed an impressive start to his debut season with the Reds and has already managed five clean sheets from just eight matches including one during the goalless draw against Manchester City last weekend. Following the international break, the Reds have games versus Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City, who are both lying in the drop zone and as such, the shot-stopper can be fancied to keep successive shutouts.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has suggested that he won’t keep Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge against his wish. The Belgium international has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid following his strong showing at the World Cup but so far, the Blues have not made a decision over his probable sale.
Speaking to reporters, Sarri said that he would like to hold a meeting with Courtois, who is scheduled to return for first-team training on Monday. The Italian that he wants to work with players, who only have ‘very high levels of motivation’ thereby suggesting that Courtois could be shown the exit door, he said: “I want to hear Courtois. If Courtois tomorrow says to me the same [as the agent], then I have to speak with my player, of course. Because I only want players with very high levels of motivation.”
Germany have declared war on their two remaining rivals in the group stage following their shocking loss in the first game to Mexico. The CONCACAF giants shocked the world with their brilliant counter attacking football, using their impressive attacking transitions to derail the defending champions.
The result was internal turmoil and honest conversations in the German camp post-match. The goalkeeper has now revealed that the team would wage war on their two remaining opponents: South Korea and Sweden, in a bid to get the points needed for the next stage.
Real Madrid skipper and long-time defender Sergio Ramos has set La Liga defenders goalscoring record after his goal against Levante. The Spaniard is the first defender to score goals in 14 straight seasons, as per reports.
Ramos is a regular threat in set pieces, and has used that to help out the team several times. The player who just returned from calf injury rose the highest to connect with Toni Kroos’ corner to score the landmark goal against Levante. (more…)
Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli is a sure name this week in the Fantasy Football world as managers seek to get the most of the New Year. The England international has to be in your FF pick ahead of the first double games a week this season.
Spurs and the Iron are set for two games this week. While Mauricio Pochettino’s men play Swansea, the Irons play West Brom before both sides meet on Thursday. Most FF managers would seek to rotate the team for the games.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola ruined fantasy football for many last week when he left out English star Raheem Sterling and Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus from the starting eleven. Many fantasy football players expected the forward pair to start the game, going by recent happenings. The game was against Burnley but City needed to continue with the wins and relatively high number of goals per game.
Jesus eventually made a cameo as he came on for 14 minutes as the Cityzens thrashed their opponents 3-0. One key thing in fantasy football is that only players sure to start are selected.
