The UF Team has taken a look through the schedule, naming their best silver and gold selections for this weekend’s action.

Rico Henry – Brentford (v Southampton – H)
Brentford have been in decent form since returning after the World Cup, and they could prove to be a handful this weekend for Southampton.
The Saints have struggled to find the net at times this year and while they are improving, they could face a few issues against a stout Brentford defence here.
Most of the Bees backline could be fair selections this week, but we’re opting with Rico Henry, who does chip in with the odd assist and picks up a few tackle points as well.
While he should see a couple of points come his way in terms of tackles, Henry could claim a clean sheet bonus if Brentford hold firm against Southampton here.
Solly March – Brighton (v Bournemouth – H)
After a quiet gameweek in Gameweek 21, Solly March could get back to scoring ways against Bournemouth.
The Brighton winger has been lethal in recent weeks, registering six goal contributions in his last five Premier League games.
Bournemouth have struggled to keep a clean sheet on the road this year, and their leaky defence could spell a great afternoon for March.
He has found the net against Bournemouth before, so March could be a trustworthy selection for this week’s contest.
Hwang Hee-Chan – Wolves (v Liverpool – H)
A slightly brave pick looking at the fixture and the forward’s form, but we’re willing to gamble on the chances of Hwang Hee-Chan here.
Liverpool are never an easy side to take on, but they look to be in poor form and their injury list is beginning to take a toll on them.
Hwang Hee-Chan has been deployed as a left winger as of late and while he has only picked up 16 points this year, he could thrive against Trent Alexander-Arnold who has not shown the desire to defend in recent times.
This is definitely a risky pick, but it could pay off if Wolves give Liverpool a hard time here.

Aston Villa (v Leicester – H)
Villa have been in flying form as of late, and they could well get the better of a Leicester side that has struggled with consistency this season.
Emery has won five of his nine games in charge since taking the reins in November, and they have picked up seven points out of a possible 12 in his first four home league games as manager.
Leicester have managed to claim one point in their last five Premier League games, and they have only failed to win an away league game since returning from the World Cup break.
Villa look too good to ignore here, and they seem a fair selection to claim success this weekend.
