Despite the short-lived Nuno Espirito Santo era, Spurs were largely ignored by FPL managers. However, with the appointment of Antonio Conte as manager, Spurs assets could now be an investment. After a three-year hiatus from the league, the Italian will take charge of his first Premier League game on Sunday. He is hopeful of a good result given his team’s favorable schedule of games.
After the conclusion of Gameweek 11, managers in the division will have two weeks to prepare for a tough winter schedule. For example, Unai Emery, who is being linked with Newcastle United, will have to prepare for this tough winter schedule. If your arrows have been green of late, the upcoming international break might feel like a blessing. But if they've been red, it will feel like a curse.
Well, after Manchester City lost to Crystal Palace, our Gameweek 10 picks were below the weekly average. However, our differential picks should be able to pull us back up in this gameweek.
Here are best 7 players that we think you may consider for this week fixtures.
Arsenal were the better team and fully deserved their 2-0 victory over Leicester last weekend, but Aaron Ramsdale's performance in goal was what kept Jamie Vardy and co from scoring. After replacing Bernd Leno, Ramsdale has quickly asserted himself as the best goalkeeper in the game with 39 points. The highlight of his season was his save of James Maddison’s free kick.
Crystal Palace is a totally different team since Patrick Vieira took over. That was showcased perfectly on Saturday, when they won at the Etihad. Wilfried Zaha opened the scoring and assisted on Conor Gallagher's game-winning goal in stoppage time. From Palace’s midfield, Gallagher and Olise would be good targets. If you want to spend a bit more, Zaha is a smart choice as he has the privilege of playing as a forward and of taking penalties.
Salah has become such a key player that he has an ownership of over 70% in FPL. It's the same statement each week because he's so important. Although Liverpool have been in poor form, Mohamed Salah is still a hot player to have in your lineup. In the past five matches, West Ham have been in superb form—second to Chelsea in the league’s form table. But as long as Salah is averaging over 11.2 points per game each week, he’s a must-pick for your lineup.
Make sure Tino Livramento plays in your starting line-up against Southampton on Friday night at Villa Park. Chelsea's Ben Chilwell and Reece James, defenders with 43 points and 35 points respectively, both have more points than the 18-year-old Livramento. Livramento has only blanked once in his last seven games and will maintain his form against Aston Villa.
Last time, we selected Reece James and Ben Chilwell for their excellent Gameweek scores. Now they’ve got the form and a great fixture to back them up as they face Chelsea at home on Saturday. Chilwell has been a big player in the Leicester side since returning in Gameweek 7 and has averaged 10.75 points per game.
Harry Kane has been sluggish so far this season, but the arrival of a world-famed manager should be enough to shake him out of his slumber. When a manager starts a new job, it’s important to convey their admiration for players on the team. Conte has made no secret of his love for Harry Kane, calling him “one of the best players in the world.” Kane also has a great record against Everton, scoring 11 goals in 12 league games against them.
It’s too early to tell if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back as an FPL asset, but he does seem to be coming back from his struggles from last season. The Arsenal captain has been quietly accumulating points on FPL, but you can expect that this weekend he'll be getting more attention. Aubameyang also has the second-highest points among forwards since Gameweek 4. He's also scored in each of his last four games at home against Watford.
