Deadline Day has now passed and I think it’s fair to say that Newcastle United have signalled their intent throughout the course of this entire winter transfer window. Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet have been joined by Andros Townsend and Seydou Doumbia, giving the Geordies much more potency in attack.
This really adds some depth to their squad and competition for places is always a good thing so the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko might just find another gear now.
Gameweek 24 of the 2015/16 English Premier League sees fixtures taking place over two days, with Watford versus Chelsea and Everton against Newcastle United scheduled for the latter.
Mondogoal have another £2 qualifier available, which features these two games only, and the winning entry will earn a place in their £50K end of season World Championship.
We’re going to take a chance on the two aforementioned players, in addition to Odion Ighalo and Romelu Lukaku who will spearhead our attack.
The Goodison Park clash has the capability of being a high-scoring affair but we have included both Everton full-backs – Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman as well as Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba, so we are relying on the trio producing significant contributions from general play to offset any goals they may concede.
Eden Hazard finally broke his duck for the season in the FA Cup at the weekend, an incredible statistic when you consider that he is the reigning PFA Player of the Year, so maybe the time is right for him to go on a spurt.
Thibaut Courtois gets the nod between the sticks with Watford’s Jurado completing the line-up!
Recommendation – Eden Hazard £10.7m on Mondogoal (vs Watford, Budget £100m)
