Elsewhere Kevin Nolan scored his fifth goal in four matches as West Ham beat Southampton and Olivier Giroud scored twice as Arsenal roundly beat Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium.

Sportingly Better picks out the best fantasy football tips for Gameweek 28, as Southampton host Liverpool.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Sunderland and West Brom do not play during Gameweek 27.

Captain Choices

Daniel Sturridge (LIV)
Daniel Sturridge was on target for the seventh match in a row, as Champions League hopefuls Liverpool maintained their push at the top of the table.

Highlighted in last week’s fantasy football tips, Sturridge scored within two minutes at Anfield as Brendan Rodger’s side became the Premier League’s highest scorers.

The England international remains the most in-form player in the division, with nine goals, four assists and 16 bonus points in just seven games.

Opponents Southampton have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight matches on the south coast and Liverpool’s burgeoning striker should continue his impressive goalscoring run for the Reds this weekend.

Emmanuel Adebayor (TOT)
Emmanuel Adebayor was unable to prevent Tottenham slipping to their seventh defeat of the season, as Norwich secured a 1-0 victory at Carrow Road.

The Togan striker has found favour and form since the turn of the year; scoring six goals in the league, but a lack of goals at White Hart Lane may be overcome against one of the division’s poorest sides.

Opponents Cardiff were hit for four goals last time out and any hope Tottenham have of salvaging a top-four finish this season could hinge on Adebayor returning to the scoresheet.

Transfer Tips

Wilfried Bony (SWA) – £7.2m
Wilfried Bony continued his good run of form for Swansea by scoring twice in Sunday’s 4-3 defeat at Anfield.

The Ivory Coast international has now scored nine goals in his last 11 matches in all competitions, but a trip to Naples in the Europa League on Thursday may cost the striker some valuable fitness ahead of the latest round of fixtures in the Premiership.

Opponents Crystal Palace have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last four games in the Premier League and the Swans in-form striker could hamper the Eagles flight away from the relegation zone this weekend.

Jake Livermore (HUL) – £4.7m
Jake Livermore’s powerful shot capped an emphatic 4-0 win for Hull last weekend, as the Tigers moved to within a point of the top half of the table.

Livermore has been an ever-present for Steve Bruce this season, missing just two games and the on-loan midfielder’s third goal of the season suggests there could more in the offing before the current campaign comes to an end.

Opponents Newcastle have conceded 10 goals in their last four games in the Premier League and the hosts will be in buoyant mood ahead of the match at the KC Stadium this weekend.

Rotherham will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to nine games in League One, after an entertaining 3-3 draw with Preston on Tuesday.

The Millers have seen each of their last nine games finish with three or more goals, but just one clean sheet in the league since the turn of the year will be concerning for manager Steve Evans.

Opponents Notts County suffered their fifth defeat in six games, as the Magpies lost 3-2 against Shrewsbury, despite being 2-0 up in the match.

Many may have Rotherham down as a home banker this weekend, but the hosts comfort in the play-off positions could cause complacency and their relegation-battling opponents remain dangerous with more goals likely at the New York Stadium this weekend.

Over 2.5 goals @1.72

Wolves (1.45) v Port Vale (8.50); Draw (4.50)

Wolves ended Brentford’s 19-game unbeaten run in League One, with a 3-0 victory that saw the side leapfrog the Bees into second place.

Wolves have won each of their last six matches in the division and although the club have two games in hand on league leaders Leyton Orient, Kenny Jackett’s side will be keen to keep applying the pressure on Saturday.

Opponents Port Vale suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Crewe last time out, but it’s the visitors form on the road, which will be concerning with Micky Adams’ side having lost twice as many matches (10) as they have at Vale Park.

Wolves have yet to concede a goal in any of their last four matches in League One and the in-form hosts should continue their inevitable precession to the League One title this weekend.

Accumulator Bet 2
Wolves to win @1.45

Hoffenheim (2.60) v Wolfsburg (2.60); Draw (3.40)

Wolfsburg won their third match in a row, after goals from Bas Dost, Luis Gustavo and Ricardo Rodriguez gave die Wolfe all three points against second-placed Bayer Leverkusen.

Dieter Hecking’s side now remain just four points adrift of last weekend’s opponents and a win on Saturday could see the visitors move into the Champions League places.

Hosts Hoffenheim picked up a credible 2-2 draw away at Borussia Monchengladbach to extend their unbeaten run to four games in the Bundesliga.

Both sides have been well amongst the goals this season and with the visitors pressing for a Champions League finish, the Rhein-Neckar-Arena should be once again the place for goals in Germany this weekend.

Accumulator Bet 3
Over 2.5 goals @1.57

Betting Accumulator Odds - 3.93 (three or more goals in the Rotherham v Notts County and Hoffenheim v Wolfsburg matches plus a win for Wolves)
