Hello folks, we’re back! We got 7 matchdays in December and this is our second match day of the week– so be quick to make your transfer on any of these players:
Matt Ritchie (Newcastle United):
Newcastle finally showed signs of life in their 2-2 comeback against West Brom, and they’ll travel to Chelsea on Saturday with the Blues coming off only two days rest.
The always high-energy Matt Ritchie could be a massive sleeper pick this week.
Harry Maguire (Leicester City):
Pep Guardiola loves coaching. Pep Guardiola loves coaching more than you love anything, including your so-called "loved ones." Pep Guardiola has Thanksgiving with coaching and they never get into heated political arguments while the turkey gets cold.
At the end of Manchester City-Southampton Wednesday (which Raheem Sterling won for City at the death), Guardiola demonstrated just how much he loves coaching by coaching the hell out of Southampton midfielder Nathan Redmond.
A little over a year ago, Renato Sanches was one of the hottest young commodities in European football. In 2016 he won the Portuguese Primeira Liga with Benfica and helped Portugal win the European Championship. On Wednesday, a Renato Sanches pass was so bad it nearly brought his coach to tears.
Manchester City maintained their eight-point gap at the top of the Premier League table thanks to Raheem Sterling’s 95th minute winner against Southampton on Wednesday. Sterling’s ninth goal of the campaign (more than the likes of Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku) was an absolute beauty, and it continued his remarkable penchant for the dramatic this season.
Wayne Rooney is already feeling the Sam Allardyce effect. Everton's creaky old prodigal son scored a hat trick in his first performance in front of the new boss. First impressions are very important, and Wayne Rooney clearly knows that.
Granted, Everton were playing West Ham who are terrible, but level of competition doesn't matter when you can do this:
