Well, it's good to be back and dig into some tasty Premier League fixtures after the FA Cup break. Let's get right into it.
Son's Home Comforts
Sam Allardyce has had four encounters with the Big Six (Liverpool twice, Chelsea and Manchester United) since taking over as Everton manager. From those four games, Everton have managed a total of four shots on target while averaging only 33% possession. With this in mind, expect a busy afternoon for Jordan Pickford and Everton's back four against a vibrant Tottenham Hotspur attack.
Harry Kane will have very high ownership (and rightly so), but Heung-min Son has had an excellent home record since the start of November, which includes five goals and three assists while averaging 35 FanDuel points in the process. Only Kane has scored more at home in this period (6).
It's worth noting, though, that Son doesn't have a good track record against Everton, but of Spurs' attacking midfielders, he is certainly in a groove right now -- especially at home.
Luka's Quiet Consistency
Not many had heard of Luka Milivojovic when he signed with Crystal Palace in the 2017 January transfer window, but he is quietly become an integral part of the Palace side from his position at the base of their midfield.
Before moving to the Premier League, Milivojevic played for Olympiakos in the Greek Super League where he scored 6 goals in 17 appearances. He took some time to truly get acclimated to the faster pace of England's top tier, but he has really come into his own since Roy Hodgson took over. Since the beginning of December (seven Premier League games), Milivojevic has averaged 27 FanDuel points.
