Predicted Line-ups – Gameweek 7

Here are the predicted line-ups for gameweek seven!


Arsenal: The Gunners will likely start in a (1)3-4-2-1 again. Cech will be the goalkeeper, with the back three being Monreal, Koscielny and Mustafi. Kolasinac is looking sharp in that left wing-back position, with Bellerin playing on the right. Xhaka could be accompanied with Elneny in central midfield, as Ramsey is moved up the pitch to play alongside Sanchez. Özil is probably out through injury. Lacazette will likely be the main striker.


Monreal – Koscielny – Mustafi

Bellerin – Xhaka – Elneny – Kolasinac

Ramsey – Sanchez



AFC Bournemouth: We predict a (1)4-4-1-1 as the formation Eddie Howe’s men will form against Leicester City this weekend. Bournemouth should start with Begovic in goal. Francis and Ake should be joined by Smith and Daniels to form the back line. Gosling and Surman are set to fill the midfield with wide men Ibe and Stanislas. We should ser King and Defoe up front once again.


Smith – Francis – Ake – Daniels

Ibe – Surman – Gosling – Pugh




Brighton: Brighton could potentially shape up in a (1)4-4-2 for their match against Arsenal. Goalkeeper Mat Ryan starts the formation. The common back four consisting of Bruno, Duffy, Dunk and Suttner should start. Knockaert and March should play out wide, whilst Stephens will play alongside Propper in the middle. Groß and Brown will likely start as the strikers, following Hemed’s suspension.


Bruno – Dunk – Duffy – Suttner

Knockaert – Stephens – Propper – March

Groß – Brown


Burnley: Goalkeeper Pope starts off Burnley’s seemingly popular (1)4-4-2 setup as of late, as first choice keeper Heaton is sidelined with a shoulder injury. Tarkowski and Mee will play at the back with Lowton and Ward as the full-backs. The midfield will see Arfield, Defour, Cork and Brady included. Hendrick may be joined up front by Wood.


Lowton – Mee – Tarkowski – Ward

Brady – Defour – Cork – Arfield

Hendrick – Wood


Chelsea: The Blues are set to play in a (1)3-4-2-1. Courtois will play in goal, with a line of 3 in front of him, which will highly likely include Cahill, Christensen and Azpilicueta. Wing-back Victor Moses should retain his position as the right wing-back. Alonso will be the other full-back. Kante will play in the centre with Bakayoko. Morata could play alongside Pedro, with Hazard likely completing the attacking trio.



Azpilicueta – Cahill – Christensen

Moses – Kante – Bakayoko – Alonso

Crystal Palace: Probably the most unlucky team in England right now, Palace will likely shape up in a (1)4-5-1, beginning with Hennessey between the posts. The back line will see Van Aanholt at right-back, Sakho with Dann in the centre and Ward as left-back. Cabaye, Riedewald and Milivojevic will play with Schlupp and Townsend in the midfield. Loftus-Cheek is out through injury again, as is first choice striker Benteke, so Sako will be the attacking option for this gameweek.



Van Aanholt – Sakho– Dann – Ward

Townsend – Milivojevic – Cabaye – Riedewald – Schlupp


Everton: The Toffees could play a (1)4-2-3-1. Jordan Pickford will start in goal. The back four are expected to be Martina, Holgate, Williams and Baines.

Calvert-Lewin – Rooney – Sigurdsson



Huddersfield: A slightly tweaked (1)4-2-3-1 looks the probable formation for Huddersfield’s upcoming game versus Burnley. Lössl will surely play in goal, protected by the defensive line of four which will include Schindler, Zanka, Smith and Löwe. The double-pivot, Billing and Mooy, will play through the centre to Kachunga, Ince and Sabiri, who is expected to step in for van La Parra. Depoitre will be leading the Huddersfield attack as Mounie misses out through a head injury.

Kachunga – Sabiri – Ince



Leicester City: A traditional (1)4-4-2 looks like the formation to be used by Craig Shakespeare when Leicester face Bournemouth this week. Schmeichel will be The Foxes’ shot-stopper, behind Morgan and Maguire. Fuchs and Simpson should start as the full-backs. Further up the pitch Mahrez and Albrighton are expected to be roaming the wide areas. Ndidi and King look to piece together the team in central-midfield. Up front, we should see the common occurrence of Okazaki and Vardy (if fit).

The front three will see the return of Sadio Mane on the left wing, Salah on the right wing and Firmino playing as the striker.

Manchester City: A (1)4-1-4-1 looks in contention for Pep Guardiola’s side this weekend, starting with Ederson in goal.

In goal will be Forster, with a back four that could see Virgil Van Dijk re-join the side with Hoedt, with Cedric and Bertrand as full-backs. Lemina and Romeu Vidal look to display another great performance in the deeper role that they play behind the next line of three which will hold Davis, Tadic and Redmond. Up front will be striker Long once again.

Tottenham Hotspur: (1)3-4-2-1 is the likely set up to be used by Spurs this time around as they face West Ham United away. Lloris will play between the sticks. Alderweireld and Vertonghen are expected to be playing at the back with Sanchez. Dier and Sissoko should take control of the centre with Trippier and Davies out wide.
