Gameweek 7 EPL Goal Projections
Will we see another Premier League goal frenzy in GW7 ?
A staggering 34 goals were scored in Gameweek 6 of the 2016/17 English Premier League, with Liverpool leading the way with a 5 star show against Hull City.
The top two in the table will meet at White Hart Lane, so the chasing pack will eye this as the perfect opportunity to make up some ground.
Manchester United finally found their scoring boots after José Mourinho bowed to public pressure by dropping captain Wayne Rooney. The decision was justified, with the Red Devils going on a 4-goal first half scoring blitz and more of the same is expected in Gameweek 7, with United having the highest expectancy.
Struggling Stoke City are the visitors to Old Trafford, with former United favourite Mark Hughes seemingly on the brink, while Burnley, Swansea City and Hull City all have difficult fixtures against sides with Champions League aspirations.
Hughes is not the only manager under pressure this weekend with West Ham’s Slaven Bilić also feeling the heat. The Hammers would probably have preferred to be playing away from a ‘toxic’ London Stadium, where promoted Middlesbrough are the visitors.
High-flying Everton get the action under way in the Friday Night Football when they entertain Crystal Palace and the the bookmakers have installed them as fairly strong favourites (decimal prices highlighted in table below).
However, a 1-0 loss at Bournemouth brought the Toffees back down to earth a bit, while Friday’s visitors Crystal Palace have suddenly found a bit of form themselves, with Christian Benteke scoring a last minute winner as the Eagles came back from 2-0 down to claim a 3-2 victory at Sunderland in GW6.
Tottenham Hotspur versus Manchester City is the pick of the Sunday action and the hosts will be hoping to capitalise on the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, especially with Son Heung-min in such devastating form.
Can Spurs snatch all 3 points to throw open the title race?
Remember Gameweek 7 deadlines are likely to be early in many fantasy contests this weekend so double-check those closing times!
