Daily Fantasy Football Tips Premier League Game Day 34: What insider tips do our coaches have for the daily fantasy football tournaments for the next round of the English Premier League?
The Team: Manchester United
The Red Devils not only have the best odds of winning (1.16 – 7.0 – 15.0) , they are also currently in really strong form. In addition, Mourinho’s team no longer has to fulfill international obligations and can therefore concentrate entirely on the league and defending their 2nd place in the table. The opponent West Brom, meanwhile, has now gone 10! games without a win. Only the greatest optimists amongst their fans could believe that they could beat Manchester United at Old Trafford.
United has particularly impressive clean sheet odds, there’s a 69% chance that the Red Devils will end the game without conceding.
On West Brom's season so far, Jose says: "The quality, the experience, the squad, the stability of the past years – it's a surprise for me that they find themselves in this position." #MUFC pic.twitter.com/AYvUNuPDaM

The Captain: Romelu Lukaku
Lukaku is the United player with the highest odds on scoring (57.1%). However, Alexis Sanchez (45.5%) is now fitting better into ManU’s game and is also a good option! If you prefer to rely on United’s strong clean sheet odds, you could give the captain’s armband to Valencia, who has a good track record when it comes to scoring and preparing goals.
The insider tip: Javier Hernandez
Chicharito scored the Hammers’ decisive, late equalizer against Chelsea on match day 33. Over recent matches, the striker has often come on from the bench, but his strong performance could change that. Against the relegation-candidate Stoke, Chicharito has a 46.5% chance to score and you have the opportunity to put a player into your line up who will be flying largely below the radar!
For me, there is no way around the Reds on this match day. The momentum that they have accumulated in the Champions League will be transferred to the EPL. In addition, Jürgen Klopp’s team are up against Bournemouth who are themselves an offensive team and are not used to being behind.
That should offer the magical prospect of goals coming in threes, or twos, depending on how much space they give Jürgen Klopp’s line up. But even if Solanke or “the Ox” go into the front positions, I still see a lot of potential for goals.

The Captain: Mo Salah
He just can’t help but score! Rarely does the Egyptian international set foot on the pitch without bagging a goal. The problem with choosing him this match day is that Salah may not get any playing time. To that end, I recommend managers who want to play it safe opt for Alexis Sanchez of ManU . If you want to compromise and have a bit more security in your line up, you could also choose Salah’s teammate Firmino , who also scores on a regular basis.
The insider tip: Patrick van Aanholt
Patrick van Aanholt: Crystal Palace not only has a good chance of keeping a clean sheet but van Aanholt has finally started to find the form of his earlier days at the Eagles. In addition, Palace is still fighting desperately to avoid sliding down into the relegation zone. All these factors make him the perfect candidate for this match day, even though I also want to suggest Marko Arnautovic.
I have lost count of the number of weeks he has been my insider tip or got a mention, but I still think that on this game day too, fantasy managers should have him on their watch list!
