Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 33: Strikers

In the continuing absence of Sergio Agüero, Edin Džeko has been Manchester City’s man in form up front – the Bosnian has three goals and an assist from his last four.

City welcome Southampton to the Etihad this weekend, by no means an easy fixture but one in which Džeko’s £6.9m fee could represent excellent value for money.

And how about the visiting Saints? £6.6m Jay Rodriguez has four goals in his last three, £7.2m Rickie Lambert two goals and three assists from his last three.

While City may only have conceded once in six games, it has not been unknown for them to leak goals at home this season – so, you know, it might be worth gambling on Southampton’s strikers.

Well, probably not, but keep them in mind for Gameweeks to come.

Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney looks to be bang back in form with four goals in his last three games, and we suspect he’ll be the most prolific marksman and/or assister from hereon in alongside his Liverpool counterparts.

At £11.5m he’s not cheap, but this weekend’s trip to struggling Newcastle United gives him a great chance to fill his boots against opposition he’s terrorised in the past.

Not to mention opposition coming off the back of a 0-3 defeat at home to Everton and a 4-0 defeat at Southampton. Hardly a vintage spell for Alan Pardew’s Magpies, this.

Speaking of the in-form Toffees, Steven Naismith and Gerard Deulofeu look like bargains at just £4.6m and £5.4m apiece.

Of the two, Naismith looks the more likely to start against Arsenal on Sunday – Ross Barkley picked up a knock in the 3-1 win at Fulham, with Naismith excelling as his replacement – but Deulofeu came off the bench to equalise in the reverse fixture at the Emirates in December.
