FFPB selects for gameweek 3

Update : 29 Aug 2013, 06:51 PM

As we eagerly wait for the mouthwatering clash between Liverpool and Manchester United and the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, Quamrul Hassan, the founder of Fantasy Football Players of Bangladesh who won the $2500 ESPN STAR SPORTS Knockout Cup, shares his suggestions for the Gameweek 3 of Fantasy Premier League.

Boruc (Southampton) : The Saints will be playing away to Norwich, but the Canaries frontline has failed to live up to the expectations as they failed to score against Hull. With Hooper still sidelined, the visitors have a decent chance to register a clean sheet.  Zabaleta (Man City) : Many hold the Argentine responsible for the Cardiff defeat, but the defender is likely to make amends against Hull. We should not forget that his team boasts the highest number of clean sheets registered last season. Coleman (Everton) : Full of energy, the Irish right back has become a headache both for his opponents and the owners of Baines. Starting the season at 5.0m, his price has already increased to 5.3 and looks likely to go higher the way both he and his team’s this week’s opponents are playing. Collins (West Ham) : The defender is the cheapest route to Sam Allardyce’s back four that have kept two back to back clean sheets. A home game against Stoke makes him a very good option as the defender also has an eye for goal. Santon (Newcastle) : Although the acquisition of Darrent Bent has boosted Fulham’s frontline, Newcastle is a tough nut to crack at home. Santon also loves going forward, which always gives a manager an added reason to choose a defender. Silva (Man City) : The Spaniard is one of the Citizens’ key players and the likes of Aguero, Dzeko and Negredo will chiefly rely on his services to help them bang in the goals. The midfielder also has an eye for goal. Walcott (Arsenal) : The former Southampton man is owned by only 16.5% FPL players, but the story could have been different had he not been wasteful last week. Will soon make the rest 84.5% regret for leaving him out. On his day he can tear any defence apart and bag a hattrick. Michu (Swansea) : West Brom is not having the best of their times and if fellow striker Bony misses out with an injury, last season’s biggest surprise (arguably) will play as a striker. Eevn if Bony plays, Michu will be tucked in behind him, so his managers are confident of a handsome return. Aguero (Man City) : Manchester City will be eager to return to winning ways against newly promoted Hull City. Although the Argentine failed to find the back of the net against Cardiff last week, the Argentine, who is the club’s first choice penalty taker, is an automatic choice as we expect the title contenders to register a facile victory. Van Persie (Man United) : The Dutchman’s brace against Swansea was followed by a blank against Chelsea, but it is unlikely that the last two season’s top scorer will go another match without scoring. The fact that he also takes spot kicks should also be mentioned. Giroud (Arsenal) : The Frenchman has given the Arsenal fans a new name to cheer for after two goals in two league matches and although Tottenham kept back to back clean sheets, we don’t see that happening in this derby that is famous for goals. Bench -- De Gea, Rangel, Adam Johnson, Mirallas
