TOTW Predictions Week 15

 

Goalkeeper
Costel Pantilimon - GK - 74 OVR
Sunderland continued their impressive form in the tyne-wear derby as they beat Newcastle 1-0. This was largely down to Pantilimon after he made seven saves in total along with making an outstanding save just before Adam Johnson put home the winner.

Defenders
Naldo - CB - 80 OVR
The Bundesliga was poor for selections this week however I believe Naldo has done enough in order to claim a SIF after scoring twice in two games with the second being a late winner.

Kamil Glik - CB - 79 OVR
Glik received his first IF in TOTW 10 making this one just 5 weeks ago however as Glik scored both of Torino's goals in a 2-1 win I just couldn't ignore him, especially with the lack of defenders this week.

John Terry - CB - 83 OVR
Terry scored one of Chelsea's two goals as they beat Stoke 2-0 away on Monday night. It was a Monday game however meaning that it might be ignored.

Midfielders
Sejad Salihović - LM - 77 OVR
Salihovic scored twice for Hoffenheim and although both were infact penalties seeing as they did win 5-0 I have decided to select a Hoffenheim player for this week. Salihovic I believe is the best option and therefore claims the LM spot this week.

Pedro - LW - 83 OVR
Although many predictors have opted to select Pique this week Pedro was infact MOTM after he claimed a goal and assist for Barcelona as they walked past an inferior Cordoba side.

David Silva - CAM - 87 OVR
Silva scored two of City's three goals as they beat Palace 3-0. This win meant that City join Chelsea at the top of the table. Chelsea do have a game in hand however.

Romain Hamouma - RW - 78 OVR
Hamouma scored once alongside assisting another two as St Etienne cruised to a 3-0 win at home to Evian. Hamouma claimed the MOTM award for the game and received an 8/10 from L'equipe.

Forwards
Antoine Griezmann - ST - 82 OVR
Atletico Madrid came from 1 down to beat Bilbao by a convincing 4-1 margin. Griezmann was the man of the moment with three of those four goals. Griezmann started the game as a striker so I believe that will be where he will be in the TOTW.

Alexandre Lacazette - ST - 79 OVR
Lacazette scored twice and assisted another as both himself and Lyon continued their excellent form. Bordeux were Lyon's opponents but that made no different as they cruised to a 5-0 win away from home.

Sergio García - ST - 76 OVR
Just like Lacazette, Garcia scored twice and assisted another this time is Espaynol's 3-1 away win against Vallecano. He received an 8/20 from Marca however Griezmann's late hat trick could mean he misses out.

Substitutes
Dimitar Evtimov - GK - 54 OVR
The young Bulgarian keeper on loan from Forest was brilliant for Mansfield at the weekend as they recorded the only away win in league 2 this week. Evtimov made a total of nine saves in order to keep his and mansfield's clean sheet. 

Johan Mojica - LWB- 67 OVR
Valladolid were on the right side of a 7-0 hammering against Barca B. Mojica is the player who I have selected from that game after he scored two and assisted another. Some debate over the position of which he played but either way I have included him for this weeks team.

Matt Ritchie - RM - 69 OVR
Matt Ritchie helped Bournemouth go to the top of the championship in style after they walked to a 6-1 victory against Blackpool. Ritchie scored two of the six to claim MOTM which takes his tally up to 5 goals in his last 5 games.

Chris Harold - RW - 57 OVR
Another week and potentially another A-League IF after Harold was involved in all four of Perth's goals as they won 4-1. Harold got both two goals and two assists form the right side side of midfield.

Davie Selke - ST - 62 OVR
Another week and another poor week for Dortmund, this time losing 2-1 to Werder Bremen who were previously at the foot of the table. Selke was the MOTM after scoring once and assisting the other. Selke claimed Kicker player of the week for his troubles and that is why I have included him this week.

Luuk de Jong - ST - 75 OVR
I have taken a risk and included a midweek game however the Calibre of the midweek game will hopefully mean that it will be noticed. De jong scored three of PSV's four goals as they were on the winning ide of a 7 goal thriller with rivals Feyenoord. If De Jong does miss out however I expect Depay to feature.

Charlie Austin - ST - 74 OVR
Austin who is possibly the most IF English striker around currently continued his brilliant form as QPR came 2-0  down to win 3-2 thanks to an Austin hat trick.
