October Player of the Month Update
A slight change around going forward with regards to our October Player of the Month Updates, we’ll now be covering all leagues that feature a Player of the Month SBC, these being the Premier League, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and MLS.
With Leicester’s record breaking 9-0 victory over Southampton at the weekend, it’s no surprise to see Jamie Vardy at the top of the October POTM race with 4 goals in 3 games. Pulisic also makes an appearance after his hat-trick at the weekend.
Mauro Icardi tops the Ligue 1 October POTM race, followed closely by Di Maria and Ben Yedder. Definitely a close race this one, however I’d favour Icardi purely based on goals alone, after scoring 2 at the weekend in PSG’s 4-0 win over Marseille.
It’s no surprise to see Robert Lewandowski tops the Bundesliga POTM race with 3 goals in 3 games. Will this be enough though for a top player? I’m not sure, so expect Herrmann or Lukebakio to be in the running for the award.
Another Carlos Vela POTM item looks to be in the running after 5 goals and 1 assist in just 2 games this month. Despite Gressel and Pozuelo both having steller months themselves, I can’t see Vela losing out.

Marquee Matchups Week 7 Prediction
Another week of Marquee Matchups is set to arrive on Thursday, here’s my prediction for the upcoming week.
Torino - Piemonte Calcio
The Derby della Mole between Turin’s most prominent clubs Torino and ‘Piemonte Calcio’ (Juventus) looks to be a top tier derby in Marquee Matchups.
Leverkusen - Mönchengladbach
The Rheinland derby between two of the top teams in the Bundesliga should be set for a Marquee Matchups inclusion, and especially without a Bundesliga matchup in week 6, you can expect to see this fixture.
Sevilla - Atlético Madrid
Two top clubs at the top end of La Liga. With no La Liga matchup in week 6, you can expect a Spanish League encounter in Marquee Matchups this week.
PAOK - Panathinaikos
The Greek rivalry is a potential lower league fixture this week, and could make for some nice investments into Greek League players.
