MORGAN GIBBS-WHITE – Nottingham Forest (v Bournemouth – A)
After stuttering in the first five months of the Premier League season, Nottingham Forest have picked up seven points in their last three games.
One of their standouts as of late is Morgan Gibbs-White, who has been pushed into a more attacking role following the injury news of summer signing Taiwo Awoniyi, who is ruled out for several months with a groin injury.
Gibbs-White has started up front in three of his last four starts for Forest, registering three goal contributions during those games.
Bournemouth have slipped into a poor run of form, losing their last four league games, failing to score in any of those games.
MGW could prove to be a nightmare for the Bournemouth defence, and he could well be a solid option to pick up the points this weekend, especially for his price.
DANNY INGS – Aston Villa (v Southampton – H)
While we know this is normally a pickup for the upcoming gameweek, we feel that Danny Ings should be on this list for a different reason.
The Villa forward will almost likely play no part in Gameweek 21, as it is confirmed that West Ham have struck a deal with the West Midlands club for the former England international, worth in the region of £15m.
The Hammers need all the help they can get at the moment and looking at Ings’ Premier League record in the past, he could easily start finding the net if he gets thrown into the starting line-up.
As we said earlier, this is not a player to start this weekend. However, Ings’ price will likely rise following the confirmation of the transfer, so he looks a good pick up for 40 UF Coins at this stage.
