Maarten Stekelenburg - Everton

This is the player we think everybody should be dropping this week, either they are out of form or just playing tough games but we think you should avoid this player.


With Everton facing the daunting trip to the Etihad this weekend, Toffees keeper Maarten Stekelenburg is probably a name which won’t feature in too many teams this weekend. The Dutch international dropped a clanger in allowing Paul Pogba to score from 30 yards during the international break, getting a hand to the Frenchman’s effort but was unable to keep it from flying into the corner. Everton have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last four matches in all competitions and the likelihood of that run being extended to five games appears likely against a City team who will have a chip on their shoulder after being outclassed by a rampant Spurs side in their last fixture. All in all, it looks set to be Stekelenburg’s busiest day’s work since linking up with Ronald Koeman once again at Goodison Park in the summer.
