This weekend starts with a fascinating televised fixture involving Kasey and his Bristol City side searching for an automatic promotion place, sitting three points behind Championship leaders West Brom.

At the top of the Premier League, Alex’s Liverpool and Raheem’s Manchester City sides both feature on Saturday at 3pm, facing Aston Villa and Southampton respectively.

It’s sure to be another compelling weekend for our clients – here is the full rundown:

Game of the Week: Kasey Palmer

Opposition: Barnsley (A)

Time: Friday, 7:45pm

Venue: Oakwell Stadium

TV: Sky Sports Main Event & Sky Sports Football

Friday night football beckons for Kasey and Bristol City in their travels to Barnsley with the encounter being shown like on Sky Sports.

The Robins salvaged a point on Sunday at home to Wigan after an 86th minute equaliser, with Kasey starting in the clash.

Against their upcoming opponents who sit at the foot of the Championship table, Kasey and his teammates will be confident of putting pressure on the rest of the promotion pack with a win.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Opposition: Aston Villa (A)

Time: Saturday, 3pm

Venue: Villa Park

Alex has been one of the main talking points of this Liverpool side in recent games after scoring three goals in his last two matches heading into the league leader’s trip to Aston Villa.

Last week, the England international’s sublime outside of the foot strike in the Champions League at Genk capped off a magnificent display from Alex in bagging a brace in Belgium.

A half-volley thunderbolt followed for Alex in the 5-5 Carabao Cup thriller at home to Arsenal on Wednesday – which will give Jurgen Klopp food for thought in his selection plans at Villa Park.

Cody Drameh & Martell Taylor-Crossdale

Opposition: Norwich City (A)

Time: Friday, 2pm

Venue: Colney Training Centre

Cody and Martell travel to Norwich on Friday afternoon in the hope of picking up more points after Fulham U23s 4-0 thrashing of Sunderland last week.

The games are coming thick and fast for the Cottagers youngsters, with the duo also starting in the 2-1 EFL Trophy defeat to Stevenage on Tuesday.

Fulham’s development squad currently sit 10th in the Premier League 2 Division 2 table with Cody and Martell integral to their chances of moving further up the league.

David Sesay

Opposition: Cambridge United (A)

Time: Saturday, 3pm

Venue: Abbey Stadium

David and his Crawley Town side are in need of turning their current form around with the League Two outfit going winless in their last four matches in all competitions.

However, the 21-year-old is gaining plenty of match action at the Red Devils and will likely feature away to Cambridge on Saturday.

After crashing out of the Carabao Cup in the last 16 tie at home to Colchester, motivation couldn’t be higher for David in getting his team back to winning ways.

Marvin Johnson

Opposition: Derby County (A)

Time: Saturday, 3pm

Venue: Pride Park

Middlesbrough are in dire need of a win on Saturday having entered the Championship relegation zone after a frustrating goalless home draw against 10-man Fulham last week.

Marvin didn’t start in the contest against Scott Parker’s side and the winger was given little time to make a crucial impact on the game.

With Jonathan Woodgate rotating around with his team this season, Marvin can expect a potential return to the line-up away to Derby County on Saturday.

Raheem Sterling

Opposition: Southampton (H)

Time: Saturday, 3pm

Venue: Etihad Stadium

Raheem earnt a well-earned rest on Tuesday in Manchester City’s home victory over Southampton in the Carabao Cup having played an integral role in his team’s recent wins.

The Ballon d’Or nominee scored City’s opener in their last league match against Aston Villa in a 3-0 win at the Etihad with all the goals coming in the second half.

Raheem will fancy his chances of adding to his impressive scoring tally of 13 goals in all competitions this season as the English champions host the Saints again this week.

Reece Oxford

Opposition: Schalke (H)

Time: Sunday, 3pm

Venue: WWK Arena


Reece was excluded from FC Augsburg’s stalemate at Wolfsburg last week with an injury that came at a time where the 20-year-old was earning more minutes for his side.

Reece, who has been utilised as a defensive midfielder since his permanent move to Augsburg in the summer, had offered more agility and fresh legs to the Bundesliga outfit.

Time will tell as to whether the Englishman will be back ready for the visit of Schalke with Sunday’s opponents currently seventh in the German top-flight.
