GABRIEL JESUS – Arsenal (v Crystal Palace)
After making a cameo appearance in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus could mark his full return to the starting XI against Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Brazilian forward has not featured since the World Cup break, after sustaining a knee injury that kept him sidelined.
Arsenal take on a Crystal Palace side that are yet to register a league success in 2023 and have only managed to keep three away clean sheets all season.
With five career goal contributions registered against the Eagles, Gabriel Jesus could well be one to note this weekend.
KAI HAVERTZ – Chelsea (v Everton – H)
Chelsea seems to have hit some form in the last few weeks, and their good fortunes could well continue when they host Everton on Saturday.
One of the players that have proven to be pivotal in that run of form is Kai Havertz, who has registered back-to-back Team of the Week appearances in UltimateFan.
The German midfielder is being ultilised in Chelsea’s front three, with Havertz playing in centre forward and on the right wing in his last two Premier League starts.
Everton have struggled on the road this year and it has been no different under new manager Sean Dyche, as the Toffees have not won a league game on the road in five months.
Havertz’s confidence could continue to grow, and he could well deliver another double-figure score against a leaky Everton defence.
