Fantasy Football round 23 preview

It was a fairly quiet week on the football simply because there was very little football taking place.

Yes, there were a couple of FA Cup third round replays but for many Fantasy managers, this week was a chance to mentally rest from the toll managing a Fantasy Football takes on oneself.

Now that we are all refreshed, it is time to prepare for round 23 of the Advertiser Tribal League in association with St Anthony's Claddagh and Credit Union, and which are my top three picks for the weekend.

Gabriel Jesus (Man City ) v Huddersfield Town

From his first 16 appearances in the Premier League this season, Gabriel Jesus managed a paltry three goals. The Brazilian forward was clearly lacking confidence but the FA Cup and Rotherham then came along. Jesus found the back of the net in that game and has scored six goals in his next two outings, four in the EFL Cup against Burton Albion, and two in the Premier League against Wolves. It looks like the 21-year-old may have his mojo back and with the champions travelling to west Yorkshire on Sunday to take on bottom of the table Huddersfield, I believe Jesus will again left his mark on the scoresheet. Get him in your team.

Marcus Rashford (Man United ) v Brighton

Five games and five wins since José Mourinho was handed his P45 at Old Trafford and aside from perhaps Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford has been the biggest beneficiary of Ole Gunnar Solskjær's different style of management. Five games, four goals, and two assists for the young Red Devils' striker sees Rashford as one of the hottest properties in the Fantasy league. On Saturday United welcome out of form Brighton to the Theatre of Dreams. Chris Hughton's men have only won one game in seven league games and have one kept one clean sheet away from home all season. Saturday will see another United victory and another goal for Rashford.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool ) v Crystal Palace

Another game, another goal for Mohamed Salah as he secured three points for Liverpool last weekend against Brighton. Eleven goals and six assists in 14 league games sees Salah Liverpool's man of the moment. On Saturday afternoon, Liverpool invite Crystal

Palace to Merseyside. The Eagles are arguably the most inconsistent side in the league. Beating champions Man City at the Etihad one week and losing to mid-table Watford at home the next week. Ray Hodgson's men will be organised at Anfield and tough to break down but with Salah and co chasing a first title since 1990, I can only see one result; a home win with the exceptional Egyptian troubling the score keepers.
