Another interesting week – on and off the pitch – behind us and now we enter the busiest period of the season with the first match of Gameweek 18 coming at Molineux on Friday night where Wolves host Liverpool. Interestingly, last week five teams recorded clean sheets but Tottenham were the only ones out of the ‘big six’ to do so meaning favourite picks such as Andy Robertson, Aymeric Laporte, Marcos Alonso, David de Gea and Virgil van Dijk all returned minimal points. As the games come thick and fast over the festive period and the players become more mentally and physically fatigued we can maybe expect to see more goals being scored – perhaps a three at the back formation could be on the cards for the next few weeks. This week throws up a few more potential ‘bankers’ than usual with Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal all at home to Crystal Palace, Leicester and Burnley respectively. Spurs and Liverpool face trickier ties away at Everton and Wolves but will both still be expected to grab all three points. Two huge games at the foot of the table as Huddersfield host Southampton and Fulham travel to Newcastle. Two of the most mid-table fixtures you could ask for take place between West Ham and Watford and Bournemouth and Brighton.
