England Premier League: Gun could shoot City to title glory

Gundogan has hit a fine goalscoring run for Manchester City and he could turn out to be the value signing of the season if he keeps his current form up.

Spurs are a sell

They go into the weekend in fifth place and boast the league's best defence but Spurs look like a club to swerve with a tough run of fixtures coming up.
The Lilywhites came into October in fine fashion with a defeat of Manchester City but have struck a dispiriting flat spot following successive draws against West Brom, Bournemouth and Leicester.
And the fixture list gets really ugly now with three red-hot London derbies on the bounce. First up is a trip to Arsenal, then a final league meeting with West Ham at White Hart Lane before rounding out the run with a Saturday evening visit to Stamford Bridge. A home game against Swansea should offer a bit of respite before a visit to Old Trafford.
It's an intense run and the club will be doing very well to maintain the league's only unbeaten record across those three derbies, let alone all five fixtures.
Tottenham will be desperate to get key men Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld back, and their progress should be monitored when they do come back, but for now Spurs players - including Kyle Walker, the most popular defender in Fantasy Premier League - look best avoided or even sold.

Gundogan could turn out to be the value purchase of 2016-17

Goals = big points in Fantasy Premier League and the Betfair markets are pointing to the Etihad and Anfield, unsurprisingly, as the places to go to this weekend for net ripplers.

We recommended sticking with Sergio Aguero last weekend and he obliged with a brace as Manchester City got back on track at West Brom.
Aguero is the best goalscorer in the game, so that was an obvious move, but who else can bring in the big points hauls in the City team?
We all know Kevin de Bruyne's class, but the price tag matches and while Raheem Sterling is clearly a danger he's gone four gameweeks without a goal now.
One man who has shown a fine goalscoring touch in recent games, and who may be outstanding value, is Ilkay Gundogan. Available at just 5.6m, the German international scored a brace against Barcelona in midweek to follow two against West Brom. It's five goals in all competitions for the summer signing, which is way better than his scoring rates at previous clubs so there is a chance he may not keep it up. But he looks a key part of the Pep Guardiola plan and therefore offers very little downside at such a cheap price.
If you can't get him in but fancy Gundogan to keep his scoring up he can be backed at 3.30 to find the back of the net with the Betfair Sportsbook.

Hornets discover their stingy side

Liverpool are a shade bigger than City in the match odds, and looks right as Watford bring some decent form to Anfield. The Hornets are on a four game unbeaten run in the Premier League (two wins, two draws) and should give Liverpool a decent game.

Recent Watford results show a team that has found their defensive mojo, having kept clean sheets in the last three games.
That rearguard is set for a stiff test against free-scoring Liverpool, but don't be surprised if the home side are not quite as rampant as they have been in recent weeks.

In the long term, Watford's defenders may be good value acquisitions if this is an indication that Walter Mazzarri's methods have taken hold at Vicarage Road. The next three fixtures after GW11 bring a pair of home games - Leicester and Stoke in opposition - before a trip to West Brom. A run where they could add to their clean sheet tally.
