JAMIE VARDY – Leicester (v Newcastle – A)
After a crushing defeat to Liverpool on Monday night, Leicester find themselves in need of a result at St. James’ Park this weekend.
With a desperate bid for survival on the cards, it could well bring out the best of Jamie Vardy here.
The Foxes striker has scored two goals in his last four games, providing vital strikes against Everton and Leeds.
Vardy has a solid track record against Newcastle as well, with the veteran forward registering eight goal contributions in his last 10 Premier League starts against them.
40 UF Coins could prove to be a steal for Vardy here, particularly if he gets back to his best in a dire situation for Leicester.

MICHAIL ANTONIO – West Ham (v Leeds – H)
Popping up with some much-needed goals in recent weeks, Michail Antonio could be worth chancing on this week.
The West Ham forward has pushed his way back into the starting line-up lately, providing six goal contributions in his last seven games in all competitions.
While it would take a near miracle for the Hammers to get relegated, they are not confirmed safe just yet and avoiding defeat here will guarantee another season of Premier League football.
They face fellow relegation rivals Leeds, who are still conceding goals left, right and centre under interim boss Sam Allardyce.
Antonio has produced two goal contributions in his last two starts against Leeds, and he could well find the net once again here – if he isn’t rested after West Ham’s Europa Conference League Semi-Final second leg against AZ Alkmaar.
