Kammy: Beat Kammy GW8 Preview

After being kidnapped by an otherworldly life force last week, it’s great to be back in the hot seat to take on another Beat Kammy contest. Congratulations to all who managed to beat the ghost in Gameweek 7, and a special congratulations to ‘Freddie Ljungirt’, who managed to beat me for 6 consecutive weeks on the bounce!

Can he make it seven? Not with a team like the one I’ve picked here!

Chelsea back in form

I always suspected that Chelsea would come good, and with 3 clean sheets in their last 3 matches, they seem to have done exactly that. Mendy and James make my side in the hopes of more to come against Sheffield United. I’ll miss you Darlow!

How good was Ziyech last weekend? The Moroccan maestro showed us what he can do with a goal and assist against a stubborn Burnley side. I’m excited to see him in action again in Gameweek 8 – surely he won’t stay 3 stars for long?

Kane gets the nod over Son

It’s hard to pick between Kane and Son at the moment. The pair seem to take it in turns when it comes to notching big scores, but the fact that Kane is on penalties and has a proven track record of consistency means he gets the nod from me ahead of Gameweek 8.

Spurs have West Brom next: a treat of a fixture if ever there was one. They may be away from home, but Kane has already shown this season that it doesn’t matter where he is – the goal is always in the same place!

Arsenal boys back in contention

Arsenal looked good against Man United in their 1-0 victory last weekend. Partey looks like a real prospect, but it was Aubameyang who took the plaudits from the spot. Arsenal’s talisman hasn’t exactly hit the ground running so far this season, but the best players find a way onto the scoresheet no matter what, and Aubameyang has a knack for that.

At just 2 stars, Saka is full of potential. The youngster is getting starts for Arsenal, and when you’re starting regularly for a top side, points are surely inevitable. Come on Bukayo!

Batshuayi and Lookman my 1 star hopes

Batshuayi has proved he can score goals in the Premier League, having done damage off the bench at Chelsea on plenty of occasions. I expect him to take some of the load off Zaha’s shoulders at Palace, especially now that he seems to have earned Roy Hodgson’s trust. Let’s hope he can do the business against a Leeds side who have conceded 13 goals already this season.

I never thought I’d be picking a Fulham player anytime soon, but I was impressed with their performance against West Brom. Lookman managed to get on the scoresheet in Gameweek 6 and has been enjoying plenty of minutes over the past 3 games. I’m not expecting fireworks, but a starting 1 star attacker in a team that have goals in them shouldn’t be ignored.


Good luck to everyone competing against me in this week’s Beat Kammy freeroll. Let the games begin!
