Kepa Arrizabalaga

  • Price: £4.7m
  • Picked by: 9%
  • Fixture: Everton (H)

Kepa has been a reliable man in between the sticks for Chelsea this season.

The Spaniard has kept 8 clean sheets this term (6th most) in a total of 44% of his matches.

He also has the highest save percentage in the league (79.7%), only conceding 0.8 goals per 90 (second fewest).

Chelsea face Everton at home in GW28, whilst is promising as the Blues have conceded the fewest goals at home (8).

By contrast, Everton have scored only 8 on their travels, which is the third fewest.

Kieran Trippier

  • Price: £6.0m
  • Picked by: 65%
  • Fixtures: Nottingham Forest (a)

Trippier may be £6.0m, but he remains the most valuable player in the game, scoring 24.5 points per million.

He has a goal and 6 assists, with his first assist since GW17 coming this weekend against Wolves.

The right-back has the third-highest xA (8.9), making the second-most key passes (71) and taking all the set pieces for Newcastle.

Additionally, he has the most bonus points in the game with 31.

Newcastle have gone 5 matches without a clean sheet but face Forest next, who have only scored 21 times all season.

Ben Chilwell

  • Price: £5.8m
  • Picked by: 4%
  • Fixture: Everton (H)

GW28 is a great time to double up on Chelsea’s defence, with Chilwell being a perfect partner to Kepa.

Chilwell offers lots going forward, with two attacking returns in the last two gameweeks, scoring 18 points.

He has two goals and three assists altogether, which means he has the most goals and assists per 90 of any Chelsea player (0.49).

Chelsea have a 55% chance of a clean sheet due to both sides’ respective home and away records, and playing in an advanced wing-back role is perfect for a defensive asset.


  • Price: £5.2m
  • Picked by: 14%
  • Fixture: Crystal Palace (H)

Gabriel scored another goal for Arsenal in their 3-0 win against Fulham, the defender is now on three for the season. The Brazilian has the highest xG for defenders (3.3)

Arsenal have one of the lowest xGA in the league (25.4), so he offers goal threat at set pieces and clean sheet potential.

He’s played every minute for Arsenal this campaign, so he’s their most nailed defender who scores goals. A very solid asset.

They face Crystal Palace this weekend, who have the second-lowest xG in the league (22.6) and haven’t scored in their last three matches.

Heung-Min Son

  • Price: £11.6m
  • Picked by: 6%
  • Fixture: Southampton (a)

Despite a slow start to his season Son has now scored three goals in his last four league matches to take his tally to 6 this campaign.

The South Korean has had 30 shots on target too, ranking him 6th.

He’s also claimed three assists and takes corners for Spurs, who have scored the second most set piece goals (12).

Spurs face Southampton down on the South Coast, who have conceded the most goals at home (19).

Also, Son has enjoyed facing the Saints during his career, scoring 10 times in 14 games against them.

Bukayo Saka

  • Price: £8.5m
  • Picked by: 41%
  • Fixture: Crystal Palace (H)

Saka is having yet another brilliant season, scoring and assisting 10 goals each, the third most attacking returns in the league.

He’s a very creative winger, supplying 57 key passes (5th most), 115 shot-creating actions (5th most), and the second most goal-creating actions (18).

The 21-year-old takes corners, and with Arsenal’s threat from set pieces, scoring from the most this term (13), he’s good value for more.

Furthermore, Saka is the team’s penalty taker, scoring twice from 12 yards so far.

James Maddison

  • Price: £8.1m
  • Picked by: 6%
  • Fixture: Brentford (a)

With 9 goals Maddison is Leicester’s top scorer, scoring 0.5 and averaging 3.3 shots per 90 (8th most).

He has outscored his xG by 5, which is one of the highest margins of any player. This is either a sign of good finishing or down to a bit of luck.

The playmaker has 5 assists too, averaging 4.8 shot-creating actions per 90 (7th most).

Leicester are down near the relegation zone, however, they tend to score more away from home. The foxes have netted 21 times on the road (fourth most) compared to 16 at home.

Gabriel Martinelli

  • Price: £6.6m
  • Picked by: 38%
  • Fixture: Crystal Palace (H)

With Arsenal sitting top of the league and on a 5 match winning streak, why not have three of their assets?

Martinelli is another to have done well at the weekend, scoring his 12th of the season and is the Gunners’ top scorer.

The Brazilian has taken 66 shots overall (8th most) and is taking 6.7 touches in the attacking penalty area per 90 (97th percentile in Europe’s top 5 leagues).

He has 5 assists too with an xA of 6 (9th highest), producing 96 shot-creating actions (6th most).

In recent games, he has interchanged positions with Leandro Trossard (£6.6m), meaning he is often in optimal central positions in the box to score, such as his header against Fulham.

Harry Kane

  • Price: £11.7m
  • Picked by: 39%
  • Fixture: Southampton (a)

Kane’s inclusion in this list is no surprise.

He is the second top scorer this term, with 20 goals, as well as ranking second for points (176).

The Spurs striker has the third highest xG (16.8), taking the most shots (93) and the joint most on target (40).

Alongside that, he has scored three penalties and produced 94 shot-creating actions too (9th most).

Coming up against Southampton and their poor home record makes the chances of increasing his tally very high.

Kai Havertz

  • Price: £7.5m
  • Picked by: 4%
  • Fixture: Everton (H)

Havertz isn’t the most prolific of forwards to choose from, but he is one of the best attacking options from Chelsea.

The German has 6 goals as well as the highest xG in the team (8.2), taking 2.2 shots per 90.

In addition to that he has had the most touches in the penalty area than any other Chelsea player (114).

Chelsea are starting to pick up form, winning three on the bounce in all competitions, so it’s the right time to get him for a one-week punt against Everton.

Ollie Watkins

  • Price: £7.3m
  • Picked by: 10%
  • Fixture: Bournemouth (H)

Watkins has found form under Unai Emery, scoring 8 this campaign including 6 in his last 7.

His xG is 9.7 (8th highest) and he’s had 25 shots on target (7th most).

In BGW28 his opponents are Bournemouth, who have conceded the most goals (51) and are allowing the most shots per game (16.8)

An alternative worth mentioning is 15-goal Ivan Toney. Toney faces Leicester who are leaky in defence, conceding the most xGA away from home (26.9).


  • Danny Ward: £4.0m
  • Ethan Pinnock: £4.4m
  • Harrison Ashby: £3.8m
  • Mathias Jensen: £4.8m
