Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez: Backed to bag this weekend

Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez: Backed to bag this weekend

Sky Sports Fantasy Football's Lee Thomas-Mason advises turning to the 'SAS' to revive your team's fortunes this weekend.

Sky Sports Fantasy Football managers should have Anfield in their sights this weekend in their quest for points in what should be a foregone conclusion for the home side.

After misfiring last week, Liverpool's SAS will be chomping at the bit in a bid to heap more misery on a confidence depleted Fulham side who hang perilously above the relegation zone.

In their two meetings last campaign, the Reds netted seven times with more than half of them coming from the prolific strike force of Luis Suarez (9.9m) and Daniel Sturridge (9.2m), the Englishman bagging a hat-trick at Craven Cottage.

The Premier League fixture is considered a home banker, Sky Bet rating Fulham's chances of taking three points a 10/1 longshot, Suarez and Sturridge meanwhile are both odds-on to score anytime.

With that being said, having one of the most creative goal threats in the league comes with some price, leaving managers forced to cut costs elsewhere in their side.

For the modest price of £5.8m, managers will have the topscoring Fantasy Football player Aaron Ramsey at their disposal who will surely be buoyed following his winner in Dortmund midweek.

Elsewhere, Curtis Davies has been arguably the biggest surprise of the season so far, amassing 59 points for with five Sky Sports Man of the Match awards for the Tigers, who have proven to be more than capable of shutting out Southampton on Saturday.

That encounter at St Mary's could well be an entertaining one, the influential trio of Rickie Lambert (£8.7m), Jay Rodriguez (£7.9) and skipper Adam Lallana (£5.9m) will all be high on confidence following their recent call-up to the England squad.

Looking ahead to Sky Sports' Super Sunday hat-trick, stand in Manchester City captain Yaya Toure (£8.6m) has raced up the leaderboard to make him the fourth most influential player this season with 67 points, he'll certainly be hoping to add to his five goals against Sunderland.

As tipped up in the last preview, team-mate Sergio Aguero (£9.8m) was last weekend's top scorer with 21 points, contributing a goal, three assists and a MOTM display to City's 7-0 demolition of Norwich.

The Argentinian striker has 48 points from his last three games, having found the form of his life with nine goals in his last seven games in all competitions.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
