Kammy: Beat Kammy GW4 Preview

Hi Footstock users! Kammy here, back to talk about my Beat Kammy team ahead of Gameweek 4.

I don’t want to talk about last week! A few late tweaks due to rotation concerns saw me get rid of Mason Mount and Riyad Mahrez – what a shocker! Still, 203rd out of over 500 entrants isn’t half bad. Besides, I gather bad news for me is good news for other Footstock users – so well done those of you who finished above me and bagged yourselves a share of £1,000!

Newcastle to get the better of Burnley

It’s hard to predict which Newcastle side are going to turn up on any given matchday, but I was impressed by their resilience against Spurs on Sunday. Whilst Tottenham were unlucky not to come away with 3 points, Newcastle proved that in the Premier League, a 1 goal cushion is no cushion at all.

Burnley have had a torrid time of the 20/21 season. Dyche’s men are yet to find their feet, conceding 5 goals in their 2 Premier League games so far. It’s early days, but so long as key players remain sidelined, I think they’re a great team to face. Wilson and Almiron have looked bright, and I’m hoping they can exploit Burnley’s defensive vulnerabilities.

Leicester march on

I thought the Leicester bubble might burst against Man City last weekend, but they’ve once again proved that they can mix it with the big boys. Vardy’s second goal was beautifully taken, and he also won both of the penalties he scored. Last season’s top scorer is surely odds-on to add to his 20/21 tally against West Ham.

Castagne set up Vardy’s cheeky flick with a trademark surging run down the flank. He looks a great signing by Rodgers, and I’m excited to include him in my Beat Kammy Gameweek 4 line-up.

In form forwards take priority

You can’t ignore the form of Danny Ings, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Raul Jiminez at the moment. The trio have hit the ground running, with Calvert-Lewin proving a particularly useful pick given his 2* status. I expect a lot of Footstock users will be picking the Everton man, but I think I’ll be one of the few who have gone for Ings and Jimenez too.

All three forwards have the fixtures as well as the form. Ings hosts West Brom on Sunday afternoon, Jimenez will try to atone for last week’s own goal against Fulham and Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be looking for his 6th goal of the season against Brighton. I’m backing them all.

I’m gunning for my first top 100 finish of the campaign this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled! Good luck to all involved – let’s get to the international break on a high!
