Coming off the back of an intense weekend of Premier League football, the midweek action promises to be just as lively.

Sparks are expected to fly, as always, between Liverpool and Everton, while the battle for the Champions League also heats up. Manchester United can stake their claim for a top four spot, but of course, for the players of United, Crystal Palace, Everton and Watford, this represents one last chance to cement their place in the starting line-ups for the weekend's FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.

As part of our partnership with DraftKings, we're taking a closer look at two players who could light it up this week - West Ham's Mark Noble and Crystal Palce midfielder Yohan Cabaye. Check it out below.

Mark Noble, $3,000 (West Ham @ Watford), vs. Yohan Cabaye, $5,900 (Manchester United @ Crystal Palace)

If Louis van Gaal's normal order is resumed, Manchester United will have a lot of the possession (though not necessarily the goals) at Old Trafford, which might limit what Yohan Cabaye can produce for Palace.


With a DraftKings salary of just $3,000, Mark Noble is the far cheaper option here, when in fact, Cabaye only has two more goals than him all season. Neither West Ham vs. Watford or Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace are likely to be high-scoring games, and so it could be worth considering their wider contribution to the game.

There, Cabaye has it, with an average of 13.6 FPPG to Noble's 7.0 FPPG. However, Noble does have four assists, while Cabaye only has one. Equally, Noble should find far more space in the Watford midfield than Cabaye might against United, making Noble the best option here.

Can Noble make an impact against Watford - or will Cabaye shine?
