With the main slate having only two games, I really like the Chelsea and Liverpool stacks for cash games and tournaments. Here’s are my stacks and picks for the Fanduel EPL Gameweek 8 Sunday 9:15AM EST slate.
Oliver Giroud & Willian
With the crowd all over Hazard (and for good reason), I’m fading Hazard in tournaments to get more exposure to Mohammed Salah who has scored in every home game this season at Anfield.
Giroud has scored in his last 4 matches vs the Saints and is a lot cheaper than Aguero. If you want some Chelsea midfield exposure, then look towards Willian who has been very consistent and is a good fade from Saido Mane who has a run of bad games lately.
I’m looking for a clean sheet from Chelsea here so I like Marco Alonso and David Luiz as my defenders who will be very active in defense and could pick up a clean sheet bonus.
Mohahamed Salah & David Sturridge
Sturridge is on a scoring tear and I’m hoping he gets the starts over Roberto Firmino in this match. He’s only $8,000 and allows you to fit Salah in your lineups. Salah has scored 1 goal each of his last 3 appearances against Man City and also picked up 1 assist in the last 2 matches vs City at Anfield.
GK – Allison
Liverpool has 9 consecutive clean sheets at home in the premier league so he’s my top overall play at GK. He will see plenty of shots and has a chance to put up a high GPP score.
