Top picks:

Olivier Giroud: The French professional is capable of playing in several offensive positions but usually plays as a striker or as a center-forward. He is known in particular for his reliable goal-scoring rate, size, and physical strength. He had 11 goals to his name in 22 starts in the league last season. He scored a goal in the 2-0 win over Marseille recently. He can be a decent captaincy pick in this match.

Rafael Leao: Leao is a vital cog in the lineup. He will look to continue his fine form in this match as well and help his side to a victory. He was in his prime form last season for his side and proved himself whenever his team wanted him to deliver. He registered 11 goals and eight assists in 34 matches last season.
