With Gameweek 8 just a week away, we have introduced a new insightful section to the page which will provide FPL managers with an option of differential players for each position at a budget cost. We look at "Form", "Average Points Per Match","Goals Scored","Assists","Clean Sheets","Influence","Creativity","Threat","Passing Accuracy","Tackles Won" and "Bonus Points". It is an exciting new prospect and we look to provide as much information to FPL managers with the hope of picking up big points! Our Gameweek 8 choices are as follows:
Jonas Lossl (HUD) - £4.6m
Having come up to the premier league, Lossl is showing he has what it takes keeping an impressive 4 clean sheets thus far, in the process accumulating 34 points and 3 bonus points. Huddersfield travel to a Swansea side who have yet to win a fixture at home, scoring just 1 goal. A very good buy with a strong possibility of a clean sheet! Tricky fixtures in Gameweek 9 and 10. Definitely rotate.
Christopher Schindler (HUD) - £4.6m
Having played every minute thus far, Schindler is one of the best priced defenders on the market. Raking up 32 points already with an impressive 6 bonus points as well, he is highly influential with an average of 4.6 points per match. Taking on Swansea in gameweek 8, Schindler could yet again bag a clean sheet with some bonus points as he boasts an 82% passing accuracy along with 73% tackles won. Selected by only 5.1% of FPL Managers, it could pay off having this great prospect as he has shown by appearing twice in the dream team already. Tricky fixtures in Gameweek 9 and 10. Definitely rotate.
Pascal Gross (BRI) - £5.7m
Its always a benefit having a midfielder who plays as a forward, increasing the chances of an extra point for a goal/clean sheet. Gross looks to have the qualities of a top player in the making. Having scored 2 goals, providing 2 assists, and keeping 2 clean sheets, he is an important and very influential player for Brighton. Opportunities for free kicks and corners are available as well. Scoring a decent average of 5.1 points per match, he has won 89% of tackles made and has a 76% passing accuracy. With gameweek 8 looming and Everton yet to win away and conceding 7 goals on the road, it might prove beneficial to have him in. Also scoring 5 bonus points thus far he seems well balanced and capable of being a big match player!
Joselu (NEW) - £5.5m
Having come off an impressive draw against Liverpool, Newcastle look to be a team capable of causing some surprises. Rafa Benitez has coached some of the worlds' best and knows exactly how to set up a side capable of producing the results. Having scored in that match Joselu looks to be slowly coming into form. Having shown that he is a threat in the box, he is more than capable of getting on the score sheet. Unbeaten in 4 out of their last 5 games, Newcastle look set to get a few more results as they have favourable fixtures coming up. Having scored 2 goals this season and owned by less than 1%, it may be the cheap forward that you need if you looking at getting in expensive midfielders/defenders.
Wishing everyone the best in Gameweek 8!
