  • In the previous round of Premier League games, the number of goals scored was broken. The strikers who were at their level best netted 44 times. This was the reason why we prepared something special for the lovers of Fantasy Football. 

    Check out this weekend’s Fantasy Premier League suggestions and odds being offered courtesy of gaming site Mozzart Bet

    Wilfred Zaha (4.5) - more, odds 2.70

    The Crystal Palace ace is one of the players that is definitely worth signing because of the odds and the limit. 

    This season, Zaha was offered a more offensive role in the 4-4-2 formation played by Palace. He leads the line alongside Ghanaian Jordan Ayew. This makes him more dangerous than last season where he played as a winger.

    With four goals, one, against Southampton and a hattrick against Manchester United, the Ivorian deserves praise for earning the London outfits six points from two rounds. Tying with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, the former Manchester United player has more points (23) than any other midfielder. This is an additional reason for you to have Zaha, both in your team and on the bet slip.

     Don't forget that a midfielder's goal brings a point more than the striker, and Zaha was registered in Fantasy as a midfielder. So far, he has had six shots on goal, five of them inside the penalty area, more than any of his teammates, and he has created four chances, the most in his team with Andros Townsend.

    Timo Werner (4.5) - more, odds 1.80

    The German striker had no concrete effect in the previous two rounds. However, we believe that it is time for the German to score his first goal after switching from RB Leipzig to Chelsea. Slaven Bilic's West Bromwich Albion (WBA) conceded the most goals (8) in the introductory two rounds. We believe that the defence will still leak in goals, although the team will certainly gain experience with the arrival of ex-Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic. The Serbian is poised to make his debut on Saturday. 

    Chris Wood (4.5) - more, odds 2.90

    And this time we tried to "dig out" someone from the "worth a try" column and we hope that Chris Wood could be the one. With the goal against Leicester City, last weekend the New Zealand international continued with his excellent form from the previous season, tying the fourth league game in which he signed up as a scorer. 

    In addition, Wood is the "main" man at Turf Moore. Last season, he registered 41 shots, 36 from the penalty area. He converted 19 of his shots on target. His numbers are also impressive when compared to other, more resonant names. Wood entered Turf Moore with 19% chances, as did Mohamed Salah, Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham at their matches. Definitely worth a try, given the odds are on offer.

    Harry Kane (5.5) - more, odds 1.80

    Experienced Fantasy players know that there is no need to rush with changes after one unsuccessful round, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son have once again confirmed this notion.  The Tottenham duo shared a huge 45 points among themselves in the previous round against Southampton and owed patience to the few who left them in their team after a pale game against Everton at the start of the season. 

    This time we are a bit more in favour of Kane, primarily because of the lower limit (Son - 7.5), but also because of the somewhat better performance of the English striker against Newcastle. In a total of nine matches in which he started against the Magpies, Kane scored five goals, while Son has two goals and an assist in five.

    Kevin de Bruyne (7.5) - more, odds 1.95

    The Belgian currently plays behind the striker in an attacking midfield position. KDB created six chances, scored one goal and assisted one goal for his teammate. He also registered four shots on goal. Leicester garnered six points form the first two games, but their defence appeared leaky. 

    They went unpunished against West Bromwich Albion, however, they shipped in two goals against Burnley.

    You will also find Raheem Sterling (7.5) in our offer. Gabriel Jesus has a lower limit (6.5) in relation to the mentioned two, but the striker's goal is valued by one point less.

    He is definitely a good option for your Fantasy team, as Kun Aguero has not been cleared to play owing to an injury he sustained. 

    Raul Jimenez (5.5) - more, odds 2.03

    Only Harry Kane and Danny Ings missed less than 100% chances than the Mexican last season. Jimenez continued where he left from this season, scoring against Sheffield United, then Manchester City. Why then should he not score against a much weaker side, West Ham United? After all, he has managed to score thrice in the previous four meetings against the London team. He is guaranteed to play 90 minutes as he faces mild competition from debutant Portuguese striker, 18-year-old Fabio Silva. Last season, only Conor Cody and Rui Patricio played more minutes than Jimenez.

    Jack Grealish (5.5) - more, odds 2.55

    This season, everyone will check the list of offered players to find out who is playing against Fulham. Alongside WBA, the Kolibas are the main favourites for relegation.

    Fulham conceded seven goals in the past two rounds. Jack Grealish could also benefit from the below-average defence of Scott Parker's team. He stopped at three points in the first game and this is the best time for him to improve his points balance. 

    Last season, only De Bruyne had more key passes than the Villa captain - and the match with Sheffield last week showed that it will be the same in the new season. Grealish is constantly involved in the game, taking responsibility for all interruptions, including penalties, which is a more justifiable reason for Grealish to go to the "plus" on Monday night.

    (Note: It is not possible to link interdependent events, such as judging a player from the same team in a match, or a player and a match in which he participates (e.g Kane scores a goal and any game in a Tottenham match.) If the player on offer is not a starter odds will be calculated 1. The "Bonus points system" used on the official website is not included in the scoring. All results are governed by the official website (fantasy.premierleague.com).
