Southampton vs Leeds United
Player to target: Raphinha

A target that is a must-have but still a doubt with his late return from international duty. However, his manager, Marcelo Bielsa, hasn’t given up hope of him making it and making the starting 11.

Why him though, with risk him if he might not make it? Simply because he has been on fire! While on international duty Raphinha made his debut for his country and far from disappointed.

He had a hand in all of Brazil’s goals scored in their World Cup Qualifiers against Uruguay. Two goals and two assists to end the game 4-1. No wonder why fans are tracking his flight to see where and when he touches down in the UK.

Raphinha’s last gameweek

  • 3 Points vs. Watford – 0 Goals

Player to avoid: Patrick Bamford

The player has been out for a month and hope was held that he would be fit by the end of the international break, however, his manager confirmed otherwise, with a return date still unknown.
