Zlatan Ibrahimovic (vs Hull) – Although he blanked last week away at Stoke last weekend, Ibrahimovic is still the league’s second highest scorer with 14 goals. He’s had attacking returns in 8 of his last 10 games, accumulating 8 goals and 4 assists in that time. Hull have only kept 1 clean sheet all season and haven’t scored against Manchester United in any of their 3 games against Manchester United in all competitions this season.
Alexis Sanchez (vs Watford) – With Theo Walcott set to return from injury, Olivier Giroud’s place in the starting 11 is in doubt. This gives Alexis Sanchez the opportunity to be played upfront where he proved to be devastatingly effective in his last run as a striker. With 15 goals and 8 assists to his name, Sanchez is the highest scoring player in the game. In his last 5 games he’s managed 3 goals and 1 assist. Facing a Watford team that hasn’t won away since October and has only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 7 games, Sanchez will certainly be fancying his chances.
Harry Kane (vs Sunderland) – Sunderland have conceded 14 goals in their last 5 games, which averages out to 2.8 goals a game. In that same time, Spurs have scored 16 goals, with Kane scoring 6 of them and also managing 2 assists.
Dele Alli – Continuing the Tottenham theme, Dele Alli has been in blistering form as of late – getting attacking returns in his last 6 games. With 7 goals and 1 assist in his last 5 games and Tottenham in free-scoring mode at the moment, he’s definitely a hot pick for the armband this week.
