Marco’s Maverick – GW10 – Emmanuel Adebayor

Chris Brunt’s assist last week keeps an impressive run going for the maverick who has seen returns in all but one of this seasons selections. Keeping below 4% ownership hasn’t been easy but we’re producing results for that FPL differential that we all crave.

Gameweek 10 provides some interesting fixtures as there are a few minnows travelling to the big boys with plenty of points potential ahead. One potential big hitter at the minute is Southampton and they roll up at the KC stadium in good form but some managers will be questioning just how long can they keep winning? When is the bubble going to burst? Well for those managers that have snatched Graziano Pelle’s points and are ready to make a quick getaway why not look at “FPLHints’ very own gameweek 10 Maverick pick, Emmanuel Adebayor.

Adebayor notched his second of the campaign in the match against Newcastle last time out and will be looking to continue his return to form against a Villa side that’s form against Spurs that can only be described as Abysmal. In the last five meetings Spurs have won all five, scoring 15 goals in the process whilst registering 0 goals against.

At 8.3m, Adebayor comes right up against Pelle for that second/third slot alongside Aguero and/or Costa. Pelle has been in sparkling form so many will choose him over adebayor and you wouldn’t find many argue against it. Pelle’s 29.7% versus Adebayors 3.3% ownership definitely gives cause for optimism if selected that green arrows are surely compulsory should Adebayor find the net.

Many have picked he likes of Chadli and flirted with Eriksen but the Togolese forward is no mug and he knows where the goal is and at Villa Park hopefully he will find it!!
