Goalkeeper

Jordan Pickford

  • Price: £4.8m
  • Picked by: 6%
  • Fixtures: Brentford (H) + Crystal Palace (H)

Pickford has been a massive part of Everton’s recent survival surge.

He’s kept 8 clean sheets this season, making 107 saves too (5th most in the league).

The Toffees’ next two games are huge, facing Brentford and Palace at home in DGW37.

They’ve fared much better at home this season, winning 8 and keeping 6 clean sheets at Goodison, including three in their last four there.

Defenders

Andrew Robertson

  • Price: £7.3m
  • Picked by: 12%
  • Fixture: Southampton (a)

Robertson has 11 assists this season, managing his best ever season for returns since 2019-20 (two goals, 12 assists).

The Scot has made 55 key passes, 15 goal-creating actions and 184 progressive passes this season (5th most in the league).

He also takes corners, with Liverpool scoring from two of his this season, aided by the height of Van Dijk, Matip and Konate in the box.

The Reds only have a single gameweek this week but Robertson could outscore most doublers, facing Southampton.

Saints have only won one of their last 10 league meetings with Liverpool, and have only picked up four points from a possible 15 in their last 5 this campaign.

Matty Cash

  • Price: £5.3m
  • Picked by: 12%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (H) + Burnley (H)

Since Gerrard took over the club Cash has scored 93 points, the most in the Villa team in that time.

The full back has three assists this term, marauding forward and putting in 89 crosses (5th most in the league).

He’s a capable defender too, making the 6th most tackles (86) and interceptions (83) as well as the third most blocks (84), which scores him a lot of bonus points (11 so far).

In DGW37 he faces Palace and Burnley, both at home, giving him a good chance of scoring well again.

An alternative to Cash is Lucas Digne, with the Frenchman coming out on top in our FPL Points Predictor tool.

Ryan Sessegnon

  • Price: £4.3m
  • Picked by: 0%
  • Fixture: Burnley (H)

Sessegnon is the cheapest Spurs starting defender at £4.3m, providing great value as their most attacking defender.

Playing as a left wing back, he has the freedom of the entire left side and has three assists from just 777 minutes this season (an assist every 259 minutes).

A Spurs defender against Burnley is a good idea as Burnley average only 9.4 shots per game away from home, scoring just 15 on their travels.

With that in mind, coupled with his attacking potential, he’s a great differential pick this gameweek.

Midfieldiers

Mohamed Salah

  • Price: £13.3m
  • Picked by: 58%
  • Fixture: Southampton (a)

Salah is still the league’s top scorer with 22 goals despite blanking in DGW36.

The Egyptian also has the highest xG (23.2), taking the most shots overall (126) and has the joint-highest non-penalty xG too (16.2).

He’s Liverpool’s penalty taker, scoring 5 times from the spot this term (second most in the league).

With only a single game this week it’s still risky going without Salah, but if you wanted to take that chance you could opt for a Leicester midfielder instead.

However, if you want to protect your rank keep him, he’s due a goal after all.

Heung-Min Son

  • Price: £11.0m
  • Picked by: 27%
  • Fixture: Burnley (H)

With 20 goals and 9 assists, Son is second behind Salah for goal contributions.

Despite being two goals off Salah’s tally Son has three more non-penalty goals, averaging 0.65 per 90.

The Korean’s had 39 shots on target (third most in the league), scoring 27% of his efforts (most).

Also, even with his impressive goal return he’s massively outperforming his npxG by 6.6 (most), meaning it’s possible for his scoring to dry up now.

He also has a single fixture, but faces Burnley, who Spurs have beaten 5-0 and 4-0 in their last two meetings at White Hart Lane.

Philippe Coutinho

  • Price: £7.1m
  • Picked by: 12%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (H) + Burnley (H)

With Watkins still a doubt for the weekend, Coutinho becomes Villa’s most prominent attacking option for FPL.

Coutinho is arguably Villa’s best player and can influence any game, he currently has the highest npxG + xA per 90 in the team (0.52).

He has four goals and three assists, taking 2.82 shots per 90 and making 1.88 key passes per 90 as well.

The Brazilian looks set to sign permanently for the Midlands side, so with Gerrard clearly a fan he is likely to start both games.

Wilfried Zaha

  • Price: £6.9m
  • Picked by: 7%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (a) + Everton (a)

Zaha is in form, scoring 7 in his last 10 games, 13 overall for the campaign.

Penalties have been a huge source of goals for him, scoring 5 this season.

He’s a very direct player, making 61 passes into the box (fourth most in the league), and skillful which wins a lot of penalties for his team.

Palace face Villa, who have nothing to play for, and Everton, who are down in 16th fighting relegation, as Zaha looks to end the season on a high.

Anthony Gordon

  • Price: £4.7m
  • Picked by: 6%
  • Fixtures: Brentford (H) + Crystal Palace (H)

This his been a breakout season for Gordon, scoring four goals and getting three assists.

He’s stood out for Everton this term, having the third highest npxG + xA in the team (6.2), as well as having the most shots on target (18).

Additionally, he’s produced 64 shot-creating actions and 5 goal-creating actions and is priced at just £4.7m.

He has a double gameweek against Brentford and Palace, both at home where he’s scored all of his goals this season.

Forwards

Harry Kane

  • Price: £12.4m
  • Picked by: 20%
  • Fixture: Burnley (H)

Kane has 13 goals and 10 assists this season, which is low by his standards, but after not scoring until GW8 and then not again until GW18 it’s very impressive.

He has the second highest xG + xA in the league (25.45), taking the second most shots (111) and shots on target (43).

The forward is often involved in Spurs goals, producing 19 goal-creating actions (third most in the league).

This week he only has one game against Burnley, scoring 9 times in 14 appearances against them.

Richarlison

  • Price: £7.5m
  • Picked by: 10%
  • Fixtures: Brentford (H) + Crystal Palace (H)

Richarlison has 8 goals and 5 assists for Everton this season, helping them massively move out of the bottom three in recent weeks.

The Brazilian has scored in his last two home games, having had 140 touches in the opposition box this season (most in the team).

He has taken the most shots in the team (62) and the has the highest xG in the team too (8.26).

Everton play Brentford and Palace in DGW37 at home with the team fighting for their lives, suiting his combative style of play.
