MORGAN GIBBS-WHITE – Nottingham Forest (v Newcastle – H)
A slightly brave selection here, but following a slight wobble in Newcastle’s form, Nottingham Forest could well shake up the Magpies here.
Despite their struggles on their travels, Steve Cooper has turned the City Ground into a fortress, with the East Midlands side going nine games unbeaten at home in the Premier League.
While Brennan Johnson could prove to be an interesting selection here, we’re siding with the man positioned behind him – Morgan Gibbs-White.
The former Wolves recruit has played some of his best football at the home comforts of the City Ground – with MGW providing five goal contributions in his last seven home league games.
Newcastle have not been as defensively solid as they would like in recent games, with Eddie Howe’s side failing to keep a clean sheet in their last seven competitive fixtures.
The City Ground could prove to be daunting for the visitors here, so it would not be the biggest of surprises to see Gibbs-White involved in the scoring in some capacity.

PHILIP BILLING – Bournemouth (v Aston Villa – A)
Bournemouth have been putting up a fight in recent weeks, and they once again stunned pundits after overcoming Liverpool in Gameweek 27.
The South Coast side are now within touching distance of getting out of the relegation zone, with a result against Aston Villa potentially seeing them hop back above the line of demotion.
The Cherries have had a standout performer in recent weeks, with Danish midfielder Philip Billing leading the way for Gary O’Neil’s side.
The former Huddersfield recruit has been busy in the last few gameweeks, scoring 23 UF Points against the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool as well as pushing his seasonal points tally into the triple digits.
Aston Villa have been seriously inconsistent as of late, and they could well slip up once again to a Bournemouth side that are throwing everything but the kitchen sink to stay in the league.
Billing could well spearhead the Cherries to success here, with the midfielder being an interesting pickup at the base-rate price of 40 UF Coins.
