Heung-Min Son

  • Price: £10.8m
  • Picked by: 18%
  • Fixtures: Leeds (a), Everton (H), Man United (a)

Son is Spurs’ top scorer (9 goals) and was impressive last weekend, getting two assists against Man City.

He has 5 assists too, averaging 0.69 goals and assists per 90.

The Korean’s non-penalty xG is the 7th highest in the league (7.9) and his xA is even higher ranked in fourth (5.9), providing 44 key passes too.

For Spurs assets it’s a choice between Kane and Son, but Son is cheaper and allows you to afford more valuable forwards around the £6.5m price range.

With a double gameweek coming up as well Son could be an essential pick.

Wout Weghorst

  • Price: £6.5m
  • Picked by: 4%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (a), Leicester (H), Chelsea (H)

Weghorst’s arrival at Turf Moor has sparked life into Burnley, winning twice and only losing once in four matches.

In DGW26 he got a goal and assist against Brighton, helping him earn 14 points overall.

He’s had 10 shots and created 5 chances since signing from Wolfsburg, the most at the club during that time.

Also, at 6’6″ he’s an aerial threat and his opponents in GW27, Palace and Leicester, have conceded the most set piece goals this season (13 each).

As the only team with a double gameweek in GW27 a Burnley asset could prove valuable, and Weghorst could be a great differential.

James Ward-Prowse

  • Price: £6.5m
  • Picked by: 6%
  • Fixtures: Norwich (H), Aston Villa (a), Newcastle (H)

Ward-Prowse is Saints’ joint top scorer with 6 goals, impressive for a central midfielder.

He has four assists as well, ranking 8th in the league for xA (4.5), making 43 key passes overall (7th most).

Along with that he’s a renowned set piece taker, taking 124 corners (most) and free kicks, scoring directly from two.

Additionally he’s the club’s penalty taker, scoring three so far (third most).

Southampton have good fixtures, including two in GW28, making him a sought after asset with over 65,000 teams transferring him in so far.

Armando Broja

  • Price: £5.4m
  • Picked by: 12%
  • Fixtures: Norwich (H), Aston Villa (a), Newcastle (H)

Broja is the other joint top scorer at Southampton with 6 goals, scoring 0.44 per 90.

He has the highest npxG in the team (5.8) and is very affordable, costing just £5.5m.

The Albanian international is the highest scoring forward priced under £5.5m, totalling 74 points so far.

In GW27 he faces Norwich, the league’s worst defence (conceding 53), and has a double gameweek in GW28.

Bringing him in may even enable you to afford another double gameweek player elsewhere, and may come in handy for those on a Free Hit this week.
