This weekly segment offers you a player from each of the four different positions in FPL, who holds the maximum prospect of performing well in the given week based on an analysis of fixture, form, tendency, and underlying stats
Goalkeeper - David De Gea: Fixtures [ VS New (H), Bri (H), Wat (A)] TSB: 40.8%
Key Stat: 8 clean sheets in 11 League games
Predicted Points: 6 Points
You must have a player from a United backline from now on. Manchester United have been solid defensively and now have an amazing run of games. They take on New Castle United at home this weekend, and the clean sheet looks certain as United are yet to concede a goal at Old Trafford. David has also managed 5 points from saves so far this season. 6.7M priced Valencia seems the only stable player from United backline whilst DDG comes at 1M cheaper and has managed more points than any other defensive players in the squad.
Defender: Azpilicueta Fixtures [ VS WBA(A), LIV (A), SWA (H)] TSB: 18.1%
Key Stat: 5 assists and 1 goal in the League
Predicted Points: Clean sheet + Assist + Bonus
Did you know Azpili is the player with the highest FPL points this season from Chelsea? Also, he has played every single minute of premier league this season. He seems to find their striker, Morata, with every pass, making him a great attacking threat. Chelsea start their great run of games against WBA this weekend, who are struggling in recent weeks.
Midfielder: David Silva Fixtures [ VS LEI(A), HUD (A), SOT (H)] TSB: 22.4%
Key Stat: League top assist provider with 7
Predicted Points: Involvement in double goals
Silva has been amazing since going bald this season. Manchester City have been firing goals in almost every games. Silva is a great value player and is back from an amazing display in the international duty. He did not feature full time in the second game of Spain, and we expect him to be razor sharp when City take Leicester who have conceded 11 goals against in 3 games against the top side this season.
Forward: Alvaro Morata Fixtures [ VS WBA(A), LIV (A), SWA (H)] TSB: 20%
Key Stat: Always scored when played full 90 mins
Predicted Points: Brace + Bonus
Morata has been delivering consistently despite being injured few times. Their team is sure to strengthen with Kante. They take on WBA, who have been leaking goals in absence of Dawson, who is set to miss the clash against Chelsea. He scored in for Spain and was rested in the second game: no fatigue yeah! Morata is probably the safest choice to captain this weekend.
