Back to the Future - Gameweek 7

West Brom vs Tottenham

Harry Kane

Harry Kane is the most talked about name this week across all platforms this weekend and with good reason too.

He was a player that West Brom didn't enjoy playing against in their last Premier League stint. Even under a resilient Tony Pulis' leadership, the England Captain still managed to break West Brom down regularly. He has seven goals in seven appearances against The Baggies.

Expect to see the in form Tottenham Striker featuring in many single tournaments this weekend.

Manchester City vs Liverpool

Liverpool are a side that have historically done well at scoring against Pep Guardiola's usually resilient Manchester City. Therefore it's no surprise to see some of their players featuring in this article.

Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane has five goals and an assist against Manchester City in the Premier League over the course of 12 matches. His most recent goal was in the 3-1 victory this time last year.

Roberto Firmino

A more surprising name that has appeared on the radar is Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian has four goals and four assists in twelve games against Manchester City. Not bad for a player who has seems to have developed a reputation of being goal shy is recent times.

Manchester City will be wishing they had Sergio Aguero available for this fixture given his record of seven goals and three assists in fifteen appearances against the Premier League Champions.

Everton vs Manchester United

Anthony Martial

Despite Manchester United's form going in to this fixture, Anthony Martial returns to the starting line up following his suspension and his previous form against Everton suggests he could have an impact in this particular fixture.

Anthony Martial has four goals and an assist in eight appearances against The Toffees. Three of these goals occurred in a three game stint within the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons. It is worth mentioning though that he hasn't scored in his last three fixtures against Everton.

A surprise name worth keeping an eye on if he starts is Gylfi Sigurdsson. Maybe it would be too brave to feature him in your Footstock teams this weekend, but Manchester United are a team he's relished playing against previously.

The Icelandic midfielder has five goals and four assists in fifteen games against Manchester United. His most favourite possibly being a goal on his return to Swansea City at the start of the 2014/15 season.

He is definitely a player that has struggled for form over the last year, but there's no denying that the ability and potential for a return could still be there given Manchester United's current Premier League form.
