Here are the best players to bring in for Gameweek 10.

Mohamed Salah

  • Price: £12.9m
  • Picked by: 69%
  • Fixtures: Brighton (H), West Ham (a), Arsenal (H)

If you didn’t own Salah before, you should definitely own him now.

The Egyptian’s 24 point haul against Man United made him the first player to score 100 points this season, nearly more than double the points of anyone else.

His fourth Liverpool hat-trick made him the league’s top scorer (10), scoring over a goal per 90 (1.11) and has the highest xG in the league (6) from taking the most shots (39).

He also has 5 assists, 6 more direct goal involvements than any other player.

He’s an absolute no brainer and should be the first name in everyone’s teams.

Jamie Vardy

  • Price: £10.8m
  • Picked by: 30%
  • Fixtures: Arsenal (H), Leeds (a), Chelsea (H)

With 7 goals Vardy is the second top scorer, behind Mo Salah, averaging 0.83 goals per 90.

Overall he has taken 23 shots, 11 have been on target, scoring 30%, which as a result has given him a high non-penalty xG of 4.8 (third highest).

In GW10 he faces Arsenal, who he loves playing against having scored 11 goals in 13 appearances against them.

However, he was substituted against Brentford with a minor injury, so may not start the next game. He also has increased threat from Patson Daka, who if he can become regular starter will also become a good option.

Phil Foden

  • Price: £8.1m
  • Picked by: 11%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (H), Man Utd (a), Everton (H)

Another impressive performance at the weekend saw Foden take his tally to three goals and an assist in the league.

He’s averaging 0.72 goals per 90 (9th) and 0.96 returns per 90 (10th). If Pep Roulette didn’t exist he’d be an ‘essential’ pick.

Also, he’s taking 3.36 shots per 90 (9th) and has the most shots on target per 90 (2.16), resulting in a npxG p90 of 0.65 (fourth).

With favourable fixtures against Palace, a poor Man United team and Everton he could rack up more points.

Mason Mount

  • Price: £7.5m
  • Picked by: 15%
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (a), Burnley (H), Leicester (a)

With a hat-trick at the weekend, Mount recorded the joint-highest score of the season, 24, along with Salah.

He’s now averaging a return per 90 and is providing 0.8 goal-creating actions per 90, which gives him an xA per 90 of 0.43 (3rd).

This weekend his opponents are Newcastle, who are second for both goals conceded (20) and xGA (17.73).

Then he faces Burnley and Leicester, who are both allowing 16 shots per game, so Mount could bring returns again in the next three matches.

Ivan Toney

  • Price: £6.6m
  • Picked by: 19%
  • Fixtures: Burnley (a), Norwich (H), Newcastle (a)

Toney was massively hyped at the start of the season, but hasn’t scored as freely as people were anticipating.

However he is still Brentford’s top scorer (2) and also has two assists, with an xA of 2.7 (fourth).

With 21 shot-creating actions and three goal-creating actions, both the most in his side, he has become the creative link in his team, but is also good from the spot, scoring one penalty this season and 11 last season.

In GW10 he plays Burnley away, who are yet to win this season, whilst Brentford haven’t lost on the road.

Hee-Chan Hwang

  • Price: £5.7m
  • Picked by: 10%
  • Fixtures: Everton (H), Crystal Palace (a), West Ham (H)

Hwang has settled well into English football, becoming Wolves’ top scorer (4) and scoring 0.85 per 90 (5th).

The Korean is very clinical, having the most goals per shot stat in the league (0.57) and the second highest npxG per shot (0.28).

Hwang will take confidence in the fact that his next opponents, Everton, let in 5 against Watford, whilst only keeping two clean sheets all season.

Reece James

  • Price: £5.6m
  • Picked by: 7%
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (a), Burnley (H), Leicester (a)

James has been very attacking this season, claiming 1.29 goals and assists per 90 (third).

Having a defender that scores is priceless in FPL and he’s done it twice, averaging 0.65 goals per 90 (10th).

As well as that, he has two assists too, getting 0.65 per 90 as well (third).

Adding the clean sheets that Chelsea pick up regularly, 6 in 9 games, James could be one of the highest scoring defenders in the game if he gets consistent game time.

But his minutes at wing-back are often shared with Azpilicueta, so expect rotation every few weeks.

Aaron Cresswell

  • Price: £5.5m
  • Picked by: 15%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (a), Liverpool (H), Wolves (a)

Cresswell got an assist and a clean sheet against Spurs on Sunday, scoring 12 points in the process.

His assist came from a corner, which he has taken 25 of this season, and West Ham have scored 25% of their goals from set pieces.

He’s also a very direct passer, playing 61 progressive passes this season (4th) and having the highest progressive passing distance by a non-Goalkeeper (4009 metres).

With Cresswell you have potential for assists due to West Ham’s aerial prowess and clean sheets too.

Emile Smith Rowe

  • Price: £5.5m
  • Picked by: 9%
  • Fixtures: Leicester (a), Watford (H), Liverpool (a)

Smith Rowe was excellent against Villa, scoring and assisting a goal, recording 13 points.

Now he has two goals and assists each, only Aubameyang has more returns in the Arsenal team.

Also, he has the second most shot-creating actions in his side (25) plus the most key passes (12).

The midfielder has dribbled past 20 players as well (6th) along with 29 carries into the final third, making him another viable option at £5.5m.
