The Premiums – FPL Gameweek 10 Best Transfer Tips

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m)

If – and it’s a big if – money is not an issue, then getting the Liverpool full-back in/back in to your team is close to a must.

He’s missed two gameweeks this season, through illness and then injury, but that’s not stopped him topping the defenders’ scoring chart, alongside Man City’s Joao Cancelo (£6.3m), with 51 points.

From an attacking perspective, only Cancelo can beat him for shots (17 v 14) among defenders, and his creativity is unrivalled.

Alexander-Arnold’s 25 key passes, five big chances created and three assists are all league-leading figures despite those missed matches.

Defensively, Liverpool are joint-top for clean sheets (six) and the England international has featured in five of those.

Brighton visit Anfield this weekend having scored just once in their last three fixtures, while their last away day ended in a goalless draw with the league’s worst defence, Norwich.

OPTA Stats for Fantasy Football

Phil Foden (£8.1m)

Alexander-Arnold’s England colleague has been tearing it up in FPL over the last three gameweeks, with three goals, two assists and 31 points.

Only the freakishly brilliant Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) and the free-scoring Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) can beat that points tally.

As mentioned in our Gameweek 9 review, Foden’s 12 shots in the box over that period is unmatched by anyone – even Salah – which demonstrates how advanced he’s currently being employed by Pep Guardiola.

The coach’s fondness for rotation makes any City asset a risk, but Foden played just 18 minutes of the first five fixtures and is fast becoming as integral a member of the team’s attack as anyone can be under Pep.

Crystal Palace will be the visitors to the Etihad on Saturday.

Of the teams who have only played four fixtures on the road so far this season, the Eagles are the worst defensively, with no clean sheets and 10 goals conceded.

Fixture Ticker

The Potentials – FPL Gameweek 10 Best Transfer Tips

Heung-Min Son (£10.2m)

The plan for many managers has been to bring in Son, and possibly Harry Kane (£12.1m), when Tottenham’s fixtures turn tasty in Gameweek 12 or 13.

Indeed, FPL’s Fixture Difficulty Rating (FDR) rates Spurs’ next two encounters as a 4, with that red background apparently underlining just how hard they should be.

But the FDR is an unreliable tool that seems to ignore recent form almost entirely, making it a very rough guide at best.

So Son will face Man United, at home, this weekend, and we all know the current state of that particular side.

The South Korea international has two goals and as many assists from his last four starts and his overall stats, as detailed in Abdul Rehman’s transfer article, are strong in a side that’s had its fair share of attacking issues this season.

Spurs will travel to Everton in Gameweek 11 and neither United nor the Toffees have impressed defensively, with just three clean sheets kept between them.

United, you suspect, will be a wounded animal following Sunday’s debacle at Old Trafford, but a team that’s conceded 16 goals already this campaign – only four teams have shipped more – looks ill-equipped to stop the likes of Son.

Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m)

Mason Mount’s (£7.5m) explosive 24-pointer against Norwich grabbed the headlines, which meant that Kovacic’s quietly efficient start to the season stayed well below the radar yet again.

The Croatian midfielder is the only Chelsea player to figure in every single league game this season and while his 46 points is solid rather than spectacular, he has been remarkably productive when one key factor is in place.

Kovacic has five assists and a goal to his name, all recorded when coach Thomas Tuchel has opted to play one man up front.

Given the Blues’ injury issues with their forwards, that is the likely short-term scenario, and it’s also a formation that’s been used in five of Chelsea’s nine matches thus far.

With trips to Newcastle and Leicester and a visit from Burnley to come either side of November’s international break, that’s three teams on the wrong side of the defensive stats for the midfielder to further boost his consistent output.

And his knockdown price enables funds to be redirected towards big-ticket players in either the Chelsea side or elsewhere.

The Punts – FPL Gameweek 9 Best Transfer Tips

Maxwel Cornet (£6.0m)

Let’s get this out of the way right now – bigging up Cornet as Burnley’s major attacking threat is to damn him with the faintest of praise.

But the midfielder is the closest the Clarets have to a star at present.

He’s managed to score three times as many goals as anyone else in the squad despite starting only three, and featuring in four, matches this season.

And his brace last time out against Southampton means only two of his teammates now have more than his 22 points – from well over three times as much pitch-time as the Ivorian.

After a wretched start to the season, Burnley are beginning to show signs of life, while Gameweek 10 visitors Brentford haven’t kept a clean sheet for four matches and have injury worries over key members of their starting XI.

Cornet is a punt and a half, it’s true, but with 0.2% ownership and a 15-point haul in the bag last time out, he’s clearly one to watch.

Rodrigo (£6.3m)

After taking a short break, the standard ‘anyone playing against Norwich’ punt returns for another outing this week.

Leeds are the lucky ones this Sunday, which means their Gameweek 9 scorer could be worth a look.

Rodrigo opened his account with a last-gasp penalty against Wolves.

And while his 12 attempts for the season is only the fourth-best total in the team, only the (possibly) injured Raphinha (£6.7m) can beat him for key passes (16 v 15), so he’s been unlucky not to have recorded an assist so far.

Norwich represent the greatest of opportunities to improve his attacking output.

No team has conceded more goals (23) and they also sit second for both shots conceded (145) and big chances allowed (26).

With a return date for Patrick Bamford (£7.8m) still unclear, Rodrigo looks highly likely to continue his run of five straight starts with a potentially productive outing at Carrow Road.
