Heung-Min Son

  • Price: £11.0m
  • Picked by: 27%
  • Fixtures: Leicester (H), Liverpool (a), Arsenal (H)

Son is Tottenham’s top scorer with 17 goals, all of which are non-penalty goals, the joint most in the league.

His xG is 12.21 and his xA is 6.84 (both 7th highest) which gives him the 6th highest xG + xA (19.05).

The Korean has had 35 shots on target this term (fourth most), scoring from 24% of shots overall, making 57 key passes and 109 shot-creating actions.

In GW35 he faces Leicester, who have lost half of their away games, before having a double gameweek in 36.

It’s also worth noting Leicester have a crunch Europa Conference League semi-final against Roma, which they’ll prioritise over the game against Spurs.

Diogo Jota

  • Price: £8.4m
  • Picked by: 18%
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (a), Spurs (H), Aston Villa (a)

Jota is a major goal threat, being the fourth highest scorer in the league (scoring 15) and having the second highest xG (16.07).

He also has the most non-penalty goals per 90 (0.67), taking 77 shots overall (7th most) and averaging 3.45 per 90 (5th most).

With so many talented attackers at Liverpool he is a rotation risk, but despite that he has three goals and two assists in the last 5 gameweeks.

The Portuguese didn’t start in the Champions League semi-final however, suggesting he may be starting against Newcastle.

Liverpool face Newcastle this weekend, before facing Spurs and Villa in DGW36.

Andrew Robertson

  • Price: £7.3m
  • Picked by: 11%
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (a), Spurs (H), Aston Villa (a)

Another Liverpool player in good form is Andrew Robertson, scoring 45 points in the last 6 gameweeks (joint second in the game).

The Scotsman has 11 assists (fourth most in the league), putting in the fourth most crosses (86) and having 15 goal-creating actions this campaign (7th most).

Defensively he’s a good source of points too, being part of a Liverpool defence that’s kept 20 clean sheets this season.

Costing £1.1m less than his teammate Alexander-Arnold, he’s a great way of freeing up your budget whilst still having a premium defender.

With a double gameweek next week a Liverpool defender is essential.

Joao Cancelo

  • Price: £7.1m
  • Picked by: 40%
  • Fixtures: Leeds (a), Newcastle (H), Wolves (a)

Cancelo has a goal and 9 assists this term, scoring the fourth most points (180) and is the second most owned player in the game (40% ownership).

He has potential to get assists whenever he plays, having 13 goal-creating actions and playing the most passes into the box this season (83).

City have also kept 19 clean sheets and face Leeds, sitting in 16th, Newcastle and Wolves, who are the 5th lowest scorers this campaign (scoring 33), in their next three games.

Their remaining fixtures are very kind on paper, facing three teams with a FDR of two in their last 5.

He was suspended from Man City’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid so he should be fresh for the game against Leeds.

Philippe Coutinho

  • Price: £7.0m
  • Picked by: 12%
  • Fixtures: Norwich (H), Burnley (a), Liverpool (H)

Despite Villa being inconsistent Coutinho has shown his class, picking up four goals and three assists, averaging 0.63 returns per 90 (most in the team).

The Brazilian has had the most shots on target per 90 in the Villa squad (1.18) as well as 3.71 shot-creating actions per 90.

Villa face Norwich in GW35, who are bottom of the table and look set for relegation, conceding 69 goals (most in the league).

After, he has a double gameweek, facing Burnley and Liverpool, and with his ability he can grab a return against any team in the league.
