Fantasy Premier League: GW3 Dream Team

West Ham were the assets to own once again last week, with Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma involved in a further three goals each as they hit Leicester City for four.

Bruno Fernandes and Mohamed Salah were less punishing to non owners, scoring one and three respectively in disappointing returns for the highly owned duo.

Both Manchester United and Liverpool have difficult games this week and GW3 is on paper the hardest to predict so far this season.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal: Jack Grealish
Manchester City will look to increase the pressure on Mikel Arteta when they host Arsenal in Saturday’s early kick-off.

City hit Norwich for five last weekend, whilst Arsenal suffered back to back defeats, losing 2-0 at home to Chelsea.

Jack Grealish scored his first City goal in the win and will very likely keep his spot in the XI here.

There are numerous good City picks; however you always take Pep roulette risk when buying assets from the champions.

Aston Villa vs. Brentford: Danny Ings
Danny Ings has two goals this season from two shots and although that return won’t be sustainable, he looks the best bet here.

A late penalty at Watford was added to by a stunning over head kick in their first win of the season last weekend at home to Newcastle United.

On paper another favourable home game here, however Brentford have started really well in the top flight and won’t be a push over.

Brighton vs. Everton: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Dominic Calvert-Lewin thrived under Carlo Ancelotti last term and has started well under Rafael Benitez this term.

The Toffees approach under Benitez appears to get the best out of Calvert-Lewin and they are always targeting the striker in the box.

In the 2-2 draw at Leeds last weekend, Calvert-Lewin converted from the spot, another positive for owners of the England striker.

Newcastle vs. Southampton: Valentino Livramento
The 4.0 Kostas Tsimikas dream is likely to come to an end this weekend; however Southampton have a playing defender at the same price in Valentino Livramento.

Livramento has started well following his move to Southampton in the summer and will surely keep Kyle Walker-Peters out of the XI once again.

A very good enabler in a tough to predict fixture this weekend, where both teams will be looking for a first win of the campaign.

Norwich City vs. Leicester City: Jamie Vardy
Leicester City were awful in defeat to West Ham United on Monday; however will fancy their chances of getting back on track at Norwich City.

Jamie Vardy scored in their opening day win over Wolves and he has one goal and one assist in three games against the Canaries.

Norwich have struggled defensively since returning to the Premier League and although Leicester haven’t been great offensively this season, they will cause them problems.

Harvey Barnes hasn’t looked great this term, but he is surely a hold for owners for one final week.

West Ham United vs. Crystal Palace: Michail Antonio
Six goal involvements (three goals, three assists) is far and above what Antonio owners could have asked for going into the season.

His price has risen dramatically already and is likely to go up again before GW3 deadline making it harder for those who don’t have to buy.

A home fixture with Crystal Palace is as good as it gets and he looks a really good captaincy pick in a hard to select week.

Benrahma has taken his pre-season form into the Premier League and the double up is a real option.

Liverpool vs. Chelsea: Mason Mount
The first fixture of the season involving the top four is the Saturday night affair as Chelsea travel to face Liverpool.

I wouldn’t be buying Liverpool and Chelsea assets this week given the difficulty of the fixture; however I wouldn’t be selling either.

Mason Mount scored the winner in the meeting last term and is a well priced midfield option.

Burnley vs. Leeds United: Raphinha
Leeds United thrashed Burnley 4-0 in the meeting last term and they are favourites again for when the pair meet on Sunday.

Patrick Bamford and Raphinha got their first goal involvements of the season in GW2 during the entertaining 2-2 draw with Everton.

Both are good picks here; however I slightly favour the Brazilian who is one of the best wingers in the Premier League.

Tottenham vs. Watford: Heung Min Son
The news Harry Kane will remain at Tottenham is superb for the London club; however there is uncertainty whether he will be in the XI here.

Heung Min Son owners will probably captain the South Korean this week and he is the best bet for the visit of Watford.

I can see Watford scoring in this game, ending Spurs’ clean sheet run this season though and Ismaila Sarr could be a differential pick.

Wolves vs. Manchester United: Luke Shaw
Manchester United have been unlucky not to keep a clean sheet this season and they travel to face a Wolves side without a goal.

Luke Shaw earned two bonus points in last Sunday’s draw with Southampton and that despite no attacking returns or a clean sheet.

That can only be a positive for owners who will surely keep the left-back despite claiming just five points in his first two games.

Wolves have been unlucky not to get off the mark yet, but need to improve their finishing before we can consider their assets.

GW3 Dream Team: Schmichel; Shaw, Livramento, Dias; Grealish, Son (C), Benrahma, Raphinha; Ings, Vardy, Antonio

GW2 Dream Team: Sanchez (6); Tsimikas (11), Dias (11), Shaw (4); Salah (6, Captain), Fernandes (1), Greenwood (10), Benrahma (12), Grealish (8); Toney (2), Wilson (1)
