14 matches without a win now for St Lucia and the Stars are giving little confidence that they can reverse this horrific run dating back to 2016. The Knight Riders are not in great form themselves and are vulnerable to a potential upset, but they have quality all over their team.
Somerset have been the outstanding team in the group stage of the t20 Blast this season and show no signs of letting up with seven wins in a row. Kent however are a dangerous team and they need a win to be sure of a quarter-final spot with Surrey and Sussex waiting for a slip up.
We crunch the numbers to bring you the latest FPL projections as we enter Gameweek 2. Here we look at the optimum squad for the weekend and consider the long-term potential of players who might be overlooked at present.
The Steelbacks have shown some improvement in the last few weeks but it is hard to support them and find a way for them to win when they have only won one of their 12 matches this season and have nothing to play for.
Neither side has anything to play for but they will be suitably motivated to face off against their southern rivals. It is difficult to really make a case for either side based on form as they have both been woeful this season, but team news favours the home side here.
Gloucestershire may ease off the gas a little after already qualifying for the knockout stage, but they will struggle against Sussex if they are not fully on their game. The visitors are highly motivated right now and know they have to win their last two matches to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Liverpool were in ominous form against West Ham although Palace were in good form themselves in beating Fulham. Hodgson will have them well drilled and could pose Klopp's men a threat on the counter too so expect both teams to score in what should be a fascinating game.
After a 3-0 loss at home on the opening day of the season, a trip to the Etihad is the last fixture David Wagner would want for his team. City are formidable at home and are wounded by the injury to De Bruyne, and they will look to wrap this win up early and expect them to rack up the goals.
Burnley have started the season in typical fashion as they have been grinding results out and are content to pick up draws and points without taking too many risks. Watford showed good quality last week but will find it difficult on this trip up North so expect another low scoring affair here.
There is no doubt as to how Brighton will approach this game as they will look to soak up pressure and counter United even at home. Mourinho's men showed real desire last week against Leicester but were still not playing flowing football, and goals may well be scarce in this one.
Similar to Fulham and all the new players they have signed, it is clear that it will take time for West Ham to bed all their new faces in especially with a new manager also. Bournemouth are well drilled and looked good last week so this could lead to being quite an open and attracive match.
Tottenham made a fast start last week which was key as they notably tired as the match went on and that will likely be their tactic to kill the game off early here too. Fulham may take some time to adjust to life in the Premier League with so many new players and Spurs should take advantage of that.
Leicester did not end last season well and the defeat to Man Utd last week has put pressure on Puel according to some reports. They did however play reasonably well in that match and may be underestimated here so look for value in them picking up their first win of the season.
Both of these teams drew last week but Everton were largely happy given they were away and with ten men for more than a half, while Saints did not inspire at home to Burnley. Everton will be fired up at home and should have too much creativity for this relatively average Southampton team.
