Who are the Best FPL Forwards For Gameweek 10?
Harry Kane (£12.1m) – Tottenham Hotspur
Fixture: Manchester United (H)
Harry Kane suffered yet another blank last gameweek against London rivals West Ham. In all honesty, it was another disappointing performance from Spurs. They had won their previous two games and seemed to be back on track. However, their opponents in Gameweek 10 have been really poor of late and it’s a fixture that could well be favourable for the England forward.
Spurs come up against Manchester United, who are fresh from suffering one of their worst results in the history of the club. They were thrashed 5-0 at home by bitter rivals Liverpool in Gameweek 9.
The Red Devils have now conceded 15 goals (16th), with an xGC of 13.84 (14th). They also conceded four goals to Leicester in Gameweek 8 and seem to be in a real slump at the moment. Their defence has been awful and with Raphael Varane out injured it doesn’t help matters.
With Kane being at home, he and Spurs will really fancy this fixture. Both teams have had a season to forget so far and both will look to capitalise. That's why I feel this will be a high-scoring affair.
Kane only has a goal and assist so far but has an xG of 2.87 and an xA of 1.47. Being the quality of player he is, his output will surely only increase. He is, after all, Spurs's talisman and penalty taker and his record speaks for itself.
Ivan Toney (£6.4m) – Brentford
Fixture: Burnley (a)
Ivan Toney has blanked in his last three games and remains on two goals and two assists. However, he has been unfortunate not to have picked up more attacking returns and owners of the forward can count themselves unlucky.
He has 15 Shots in the Box, 8 Shots on Target with an xG of 2.35 and has created 5 Big Chances (2nd) with an xA of 2.85 (5th).
Brentford face Burnley in Gameweek 10 who have been poor at the back. The Clarets have conceded 15 goals (16th), 99 Shots in the Box (20th) and an xGC of 15.54 (17th).
Despite two defeats in the last two for the Bees, they are clearly a very good side and will score enough goals over the season to justify the inclusion of their attackers.
Brentford now have a really good run of fixtures coming up, starting with an away game at Turf Moor and I feel it’s a great time to bring in last season's top scorer in the Championship.
Toney is their main talisman, who is a nailed 90-minute player and also the number one penalty taker. They are 8th for xG (12.23) and are also in the top eight for Shots in the Box (77) and Big Chances (18).
Ivan Toney is also the third highest predicted scoring forward (5.31 points) according to our Points Prediction Tool and is also at 52% for anytime returns.
Michail Antonio (£8.1m) – West Ham United
Fixture: Aston Villa (a)
Michail Antonio has now registered six goals and four assists in eight starts and has provided great value for a starting price of £7.5m. He has 28 Shots in the Box (2nd), 13 Shots on Target (2nd), 10 Big Chances (2nd) and an xG of 5.80 (2nd). He is also third for xA at 3.27.
The Jamaican forward has been a really reliable and consistent scorer for owners thus far.
West Ham come up against Aston Villa (a) in Gameweek 10 who have been quite an unpredictable side. They have conceded 15 goals (16th) and an xGC of 14.59 (15th) and have proven they are susceptible in defence. They have conceded six goals in the last two games also.
The Hammers, on the other hand, have been really good going forward scoring 16 goals (4th) with an xG 15.83 (5th). They are also in the top five for Shots in the Box (93) and Shots on Target (47).
Antonio’s underlying numbers are fantastic and mirror those of a premium asset. If he manages to stay fit there’s no telling how many goals he can score this season and he may even be worth keeping over their tough fixture run.
Raul Jimenez (£7.6m) – Wolves
Fixture: Everton (H)
The Mexican international has now scored one goal and three assists in his first eight starts. His stats have been decent so far with 16 Shots in the Box, 4 Big Chances and an xG of 2.21. He has also created 20 Chances, 3 Big Chances with an xA 2.4.
He seems to be operating as more of an all-round player this season as his creativity has increased. He has also been unfortunate to only have a solitary goal and his underlying numbers suggest more goals are to come.
Wolves come up against Everton at home in Gameweek 10. Bruno Lage’s men have been one of the most underperforming sides in the league in the final third. They have scored 9 goals (17th) but have an xG of 13.43 (7th). Again, the stats suggest Wolves' goal scoring will increase and they have a good run of fixtures in the next five also.
The Toffees have conceded 14 goals (16th) thus far with an xGC of 12.84 (10th). They have only kept two clean sheets and also conceded five goals at home to Watford last gameweek, which shows they have defensive frailties which can be exploited.
Jimenez owners should feel confident in his potential this week as he and Wolves have been promising so far. He has plenty of attacking threat. He is also the number one penalty taker at the club and is proven in the Premier League with 35 goals and 18 assists in 95 games.
Teemu Pukki (£5.8m) – Norwich
Fixture: Leeds United (H)
Norwich sit rooted to the bottom of the table having only scored two goals. Unsurprisingly though, both goals have been scored by their talisman Teemu Pukki. He has managed 14 Shots in the Box, 5 Big Chances with an xG of 2.70 and also created 5 chances with an xA of 1.06.
The Canaries have had a really tough run, facing Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester City, Brighton and Chelsea in their first eight games who are all good defensive sides.
In Gameweek 10 they come up against much more favourable opposition in Leeds United. The Whites have conceded 16 goals (17th), with 89 Shots in the Box (17th), 52 Shots on Target (19th) and an xGC of 15.38 (16th)
Although Norwich’s attacking stats are amongst the worst in the league, they will fancy themselves at home against Bielsa’s men. They'll be well aware of the attacking football they play which leaves them open at the back regularly.
With Norwich at home to one of the worst defences in the league, they won’t get many better opportunities to win a game this season. And without a doubt, Pukki is their best route to goals.
In the 2019/20 season the Finnish forward scored 11 goals and 3 assists with a 46% Goal Involvement which was by far the highest in the team. He also finished the season as their top goal and points scorer.
Our Points Prediction Tool actually has him as the sixth highest scoring forward for expected points (4.92) and he is the second-highest budget forward.
