The UF Team name their best silver and base selections ahead of this weekend’s Premier League contest
With the UCL contest getting underway this evening, the UF Team have already began their research for Gameweek 28.
First up in this week’s features are the Non-Gold Gems, which are the team’s best silver and base card selections ahead of the weekend.
Brighton’s Kaoru Mitoma was a standout in last week’s selections, with the Japanese winger providing an assist to claim five points.
Here are this week’s Non-Gold Gems.
CRAIG DAWSON – Wolves (vs Leeds – H)
An interesting play from the Wolves backline, Craig Dawson could prove to be a hidden gem in this week’s contest.
The former West Ham centre-back has picked up 31 points so far this season, with 13 points of that total coming from attacking returns.
The 32-year-old is not scared to get up field for a corner and he does use his head to his advantage – quite literally.
Leeds have conceded nine goals from set play this year, which is the sixth-highest in the league.
While it is a longshot Dawson will score here, he could at least pick up a few points from tackles and shots on target.

MIKKEL DAMSGAARD – Brentford (vs Leicester – A)
Not the simplest of home games for Brentford, but they could bounce back to form against an inconsistent Leicester side this weekend.
Despite only scoring two points since being introduced into the game, Mikkel Damsgaard could be a player to monitor this weekend.
The Danish midfielder has started the last two games for the Bees, and he could have settled into the line-up after a couple of starts under his belt.
Leicester have conceded in their last seven competitive fixtures, so it could be a good opportunity for Damsgaard to make his mark for Brentford.
DEMARAI GRAY – Everton (vs Chelsea – A)
Despite Everton’s away form being questionable this season, a few of their player assets could be an interesting play this weekend.
One of which being Demarai Gray, who is being utilised as a striker in Sean’s Dyche setup currently. It has worked in recent weeks as well, with the winger scoring against Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 26.
The former Leicester recruit has produced four goal contributions in his last six Premier League starts, and he could add to his tally here.
Chelsea are improving, but they’re still leaking goals here and there, so Gray could well stun the Blues by getting on the scoresheet.

SOUTHAMPTON (vs Tottenham – H)
A bold play indeed, but after Southampton’s recent performances, they could be a worthwhile selection this week.
The Saints have made a respectable start under new manager Ruben Selles, with the South Coast side claiming eight points in his first six games in charge.
Spurs’ inconsistency as of late could well haunt them here, particularly as they have not been great on their travels.
The North London side has lost three of their last four away games, including defeats to Wolves and Leicester.
If Southampton continue on the upwards trajectory they are on, they could well pull off a surprise win here.
