With a full slate of domestic football on the slate for Saturday afternoon, we’ve put together a 63/1 anytime scorer quadruple for you to have a think about…
Starting off in the Premier League with a player who I took with my first pick in my FPL draft Darwin Nunez. When he didn’t start at Stamford Bridge I was crestfallen as I drew my matchup and that extra point would have got me over the hump (Sandro Tonali’s yellow card whilst getting substituted also got my ire) but that is not important here. I like the striker to be in the starting XI on Saturday in a home matchup against a team expected to struggle. He scored plenty in pre-season and looks primed to have a big season. This is a great spot for him to score.
Down in the Championship and Conor Chaplin has done great things since leaving his boyhood club. What the 26 year-old is yet to do however is score in the Championship for the Tractor Boys. Two games in and no goals is a touch surprising but he’ll bang them in at this level. 26 league goals a year ago indicates that he’s becoming a really good forward and QPR shipped in four last time out at home in the league. I like Ipswich for the win and I like Chaplin to find the back of the net.
Very rare in columns like this to put two players from the same game in but Wrexham have played two league games in front of their fans since their promotion back to the Football League and they’ve lost 3-5 and won 4-2. They clearly score goals but struggle to keep them out at the other end. Paul Mullen is still unavailable (expect his name to be a frequent one in this column when back) but Eliott Lee has already scored twice from seven shots in three league games. He looks a good bet to find the back of the net again.
In addition to Lee, veteran striker Charlie Austin will score plenty at this level and a bit like Conor Chaplin earlier, two games without a goal makes me feel that he’s due. Against such a poor defence as Wrexham’s, this feels like the game where he nets his first of the 23/24 campaign.
