Haaland’s record-breaking start to his Premier League career has already seen him rack up 14 goals and three assists in just eight matches including three hattricks and tipster Paul is backing him to continue his stellar form against Southampton in his FPL player rankings for gameweek 10.
|1||Erling Haaland||MCI||vs SOU||12.1M||The most in-form player (by far) playing for the most in-form team having the best fixture of the week. Haaland is close to being a permacaptain, and this week he might have an EO of over 200%, so even if you captain him, any of his returns could harm your rank 🙂|
|2||Harry Kane||TOT||@BHA||11.4M||Brighton, as expected, looked different under De Zerbi. They like to have possession and attack more, but at the same time, are susceptible to conceding more goals. I think this fixture fits Spurs and Conte, and they can punish Brighton on the counter.|
|3||Ollie Watkins||AVL||@NFO||7.2M||You can target Nottingham each week, as they now look like the weakest team in the league from a defense point of view. From a Villa side that plays quite conservatively, Watkins is the obvious choice, as he tops for xG and xGI, and xPts charts.|
|4||Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang||CHE||vs WOL||9M||Chelsea is facing a Wolves team that is underperforming and without a Manager after Lage got sacked. Aubameyang has scored in back-to-back games and looks like the focal point of Chelsea attacks under Potter.|
|5||Callum Wilson||NEW||vs BRE||7.2M||With Isak still sidelined by an injury against Brentford at home, with three goals in 4 games played, and with an xGper90 of 0.78, I'm expecting Wilson to do good this GW.|
|1||Phil Foden||MCI||vs SOU||8.1M||Rested midweek, is the main City goal threat beside Haaland, and just two fantasy points behind De Bruyne this season. I rank him ahead of KDB because he is 4.3M cheaper, and those funds can boost your team elsewhere.|
|2||Kevin De Bruyne||MCI||vs SOU||12.4M||De Bruyne remains the best creator in the league, and he tops the charts for xA (4.69) and BCC (9) by a landslide. This year he is showing up less in front of the goal, but you can expect him to haul in almost any game.|
|3||Wilfried Zaha||CRY||vs LEE||7.3M||After some tough fixtures at the start of the season, Palace is starting this week a run favorable fixtures up to the World Cup. Zaha is the team talisman; on penalties, he is first in the team for xG and xGI, and I really fancy him, especially at home games.|
|4||James Maddison||LEI||@BOU||8.1M||The team talisman is in form after his 18-point haul against Nottingham last week, and it is hard not to back him up against Bournemouth. Also, he is pushing for a sport in England's World Cup team, so it is make or break for him.|
|5||Jarrod Bowen||WHU||vs FUL||8.1M||He underperformed at the start of the season but bounced back last GW with a goal and an assist. This week he plays at home against Fulham, the last team in the league for xGC (17.1). He is also fighting for a place in the World Cup team like Maddison.|
|1||Reece James||CHE||vs WOL||6M||With Potter in charge, James seems to be nailed at RWB and back in last year's form. Also, clean sheet chances seem to be higher now, and also is facing Wolves, one of the worst teams in the league for xG.|
|2||João Cancelo||MCI||vs SOU||7.2M||Attacking involvement dropped dramatically compared to last year (0.8 xGI in eight games), but he is the most nailed defender in the best defensive team in the league.|
|3||James Justin||LEI||@BOU||4.3M||Justin is facing the worst attacking team in the league. Bournemouth have just 4.34 xG in eight games, with 3.4 xG less than the next worst team.|
|4||Sergio Gomez||MCI||vs SOU||4.5M||A 4.5M starting defender in the City team is a gift that cannot be missed. Gomez started the last two games and had an assist in both.|
|5||Kieran Trippier||NEW||vs BRE||5.5M||Second among defenders in the league for xA (1.35), one of the best players on the team, playing at home with a good matchup this week.|
|2||Nick Pope||NEW||vs BRE||5.3M||Cleansheet and saves are on the table for Pope against Brentford.|
|3||Kepa Arrizabalaga||CHE||vs WOL||4.4M||Chelsea's starting keeper at 4.4M with a good matchup that is hard to miss. Just pay attention to press conferences and team rumors before the deadline since Mendy is back from injury.|
|4||Vicente Guaita||CRY||vs LEE||4.5M|
|5||Danny Ward||LEI||@BOU||4M||Ward was such a disappointment since the start of the season, and it was also rumored that he would be replaced by Iversen in the first 11, but then a clean sheet against Nottingham and this week's matchup makes me consider him again.|
