The Spy is back for another week as we look ahead to Gameweek 34. In this piece, we’ll look at a player to watch from each team featuring in the last five games of the gameweek.
Burnley vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers (Sunday, 2pm)
Burnley – Wout Weghorst (Anytime scorer, 23/10)
Just when Burnley needed it most, Wout Weghorst has found his shooting boots to keep them in the fight for survival.
The big-Dutch centre forward has now scored in each of his last two games, games in which the Clarets have picked up four points.
He’ll certainly be feeling confident coming into this one, so don’t count another Weghorst goal on Sunday afternoon.
Wolves – Jonny Otto
Wolves don’t really have any players who will score the majority of their goals, with players sharing the goalscoring duties.
It’s difficult to choose a player to watch for them at times, but Jonny Otto has come back into the side and made a difference.
He’s missed a huge chunk of the season but now he’s back playing again and comes into this game on the back of two goals in his last three league appearances.
Chelsea vs. West Ham United (Sunday, 2pm)
Chelsea – Timo Werner (Anytime scorer, 9/5)
After a very slow start, Timo Werner is starting to find the net more regularly, which is needed for Chelsea considering Romelu Lukaku’s current form.
He was amongst the goals once again in the week, scoring somewhat a fortunate goal which went in via a big deflection.
The German has now found the net in four times in his last four games in all competitions, whilst also adding two assists in those games as well.
Due to that, he’s had a good couple of weeks in Ultimate Fan, having picked up 42 in just the last two gameweeks.
West Ham – Jarrod Bowen (Anytime scorer, 4/1)
There hasn’t been many players who have improved as much this season than Jarrod Bowen who’s been nothing short of fantastic.
Whether he’ll get that England call-up that he arguably deserves is another question, but he just needs to keep his form up and he’s got a good chance of getting it.
The West Ham man has contributed to a very impressive 19 goals this campaign, seeing him pick up 204 points.
His record against Chelsea is somewhat surprisingly striking, as Bowen has contributed to four goals in four Premier League games against Chelsea.
Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Southampton (Sunday, 2pm)
Brighton – Leandro Trossard (Anytime scorer, 5/2)
Brighton’s away winning run came to an end on Thursday night, yet it was expected due to them playing Manchester City.
However, they did pull off a couple of shock results in the previous couple of fixtures, beating both Arsenal and Tottenham on the road.
At the heart of those victories was Leandro Trossard, who scored both of the winning goals in each game.
Whilst he didn’t find the net last time out, he has still managed to haul in 25 points in the last two gameweeks alone.
Southampton – Armando Broja (Anytime scorer, 12/5)
Just after recording their first win in a while, against a very good Arsenal side as well, Southampton followed it up with a loss against Burnley.
They face a Brighton side who have had an upturn in form in recent weeks, but the Saints were very unlucky not to get the three points in the reverse fixture.
A Neal Maupay goal in the 98th minute cancelled out Armando Broja’s strike which looked like it was going to be a winner.
The on-loan Chelsea forward has had a positive season, having scored six whilst also registering the one assist.
Liverpool vs. Everton (Sunday, 4.30pm)
Liverpool – Mohamed Salah (Anytime scorer, 4/6)
Liverpool’s time at the top of the table didn’t last for long but their peak position was deserved after the mauling of Manchester United.
Mohamed Salah played a big part in that, scoring twice that evening, ending his long wait for a goal in open play.
The Egyptian has been exceptional once again this campaign, contributing to 34 goals in just 30 Premier League appearances.
With four goals from his six appearances against Everton, it wouldn’t be a shock to see him find the net again on Sunday.
Everton – Richarlison (Anytime scorer, 4/1)
Everton are still well and truly in the thick of a relegation scrap and would only be three points off the bottom three if it wasn’t for their late goal against Leicester last time out.
It was Richarlison who got the very important last-gasp equaliser, scoring his 50th goal in an Everton shirt.
Everton players seem to struggle picking up points in Ultimate Fan, though, with only Burnley, Watford and Norwich players earning fewer accumulatively.
Richarlison is, in fact, the highest-scoring Toffees player, though. With seven goals and four assists, he’s picked up 136 points, making him the 20th most fruitful forward in the game.
Crystal Palace vs. Leeds United (Monday, 8pm)
Crystal Palace – Wilfried Zaha (Anytime scorer, 7/5)
Crystal Palace have lost their positive momentum recently, losing each of their last three games in all competitions.
One player who has been in good form for the Eagles recently, though, is Wilfried Zaha after five goals from his last seven in the league.
He’s had a good season as he currently sits on 11 goals and one assist from 27 league appearances.
This has seen him become a solid card in Ultimate Fan, picking up an impressive 171 points, making him the 15th best forward.
Leeds – Raphinha (Anytime scorer, 11/5)
Leeds aren’t exactly safe from the drop just yet, especially after Burnley’s win in the week, and they face a tough few games in the upcoming weeks.
They will be hoping for a repeat result from the reverse fixture, where they beat Crystal Palace by a goal to nil.
Raphinha was the goalscorer that day, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him amongst the goals again this weekend.
With 13 goal contributions this campaign, he’s enjoying a fruitful season, whilst hauling in 177 points, more than any other Leeds player.
