Domestic football makes it’s long-awaited return this weekend following the recent international break, with a number of games peaking the interest in the build-up to the always-exciting festive period.
All eyes will be on the London Stadium Saturday lunchtime as Jose Mourinho makes his managerial debut for Tottenham Hotspur, while Manchester City hosting Chelsea and two Serie A sides bereft of form in AC Milan and Napoli are just some of the other fixtures on offer.
Thursday 21 November Media Day Winners:
- 1st Place: Harry Kane (600) 5p
- 2nd Place: Gareth Bale (590) 3p
- 3rd Place: Granit Xhaka (430) 1p
Here’s a glance at who Traders should consider for their portfolios.
Bruno Fernandes (£2.86) Sees Significant Rise in Wake of Jose Mourinho Appointment
Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes has enjoyed a significant price rise in the wake of events this week – Mourinho’s Premier League return and the like.
As a result, the forward-thinking player has seen his share prices increase by 15p, with many Traders backing the 25-year-old to feature prominently as we meander into the January Transfer Window – namely as one of Spurs’ new signings.
Add to that the Portuguese international’s healthy attacking output of eight goals and six assists for Sporting this season, Fernandes appears to be a certainty for Traders.
Return of Neymar (£8.12) Gives Traders & Thomas Tuchel Selection Headache
Paris Saint-Germain look set to welcome back the world’s most expensive footballer today, as Neymar is poised to make his return from injury for Les Parisians.

The 27-year-old hasn’t featured for the reigning Ligue 1 champions since early October with a hamstring injury, but with the Brazilian international seeing his share price increase by 8p in the last seven days, Traders are looking to take advantage of his presence on the Bronze Match Day.
Neymar has four goals in his five games this season – three of which have been winners – so Traders are likely to be sure to monitoring his progress closely over the coming weeks.
Gerard Moreno (£1.56) Backed to Maintain Form After Goal-Laden International Break
Gerard Moreno has enjoyed a fine start to the 2019/20 campaign, whether that be in the yellow of Villarreal or the red of Spain, with the striker seeing a significant increase in share price as a result.
Since his most-recent exploits for La Roja, which included three goals in two games, the 27-year-old’s share price has risen 31p over the past few days such as been the quality of his displays this season.
Add to that the fact that El Submarine Amarillo are facing 18th-placed Celta Vigo – a side without a win or clean sheet in their last five games – this Sunday, then Moreno is a leading contender to claim Top Forward on the Gold Match Day.
