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: Ederson vs CRY A
Key stat: Only player in Man City from defensive set up to feature in every league games.
Prediction: Clean Sheet
If anyone asks you to put money on the most likely goalkeeper to provide assist it has to be this Brazilian. Manchester City, the team to have conceded least goals in the league, take on Eagles on road this weekend, which should be an easy game for the team that is flying at the moment. With busy festive period and Stones coming back from injury you might see many rotations in Pep's team but this man is safe from that.
DEFENDER: Alonso vs Stoke H
Key stat: Highest scoring defender in the league.
Prediction: Clean sheet + attacking returns.
He might not be best of the fullbacks but why should we FPL managers care as long as they deliver points? Chelsea have now managed 3 clean sheets in the row. In addition to that, their left wingback has managed 2 goals and 1 assists in the last 5 league games. Chelsea take on Stoke City who are in bad form at the moment. If you have Alonso in the team start rubbing your palm guys.
MIDFIELDER: Salah vs LEI H
Key stat: Player with the maximum FPL returns so far.
Prediction: Involvement in multiple goals.
With 15 goals and 7 FPL assists already this season, this Egyptian is delivering in every game and if you still do not have him in your squad, perhaps, you should quit FPL. With the games, coming thick and fast, the FAB 4 might not play, but Klopp is no fool to rest this man in red-hot form. Also, he was subbed off at 68 mins, so he should start, making him a good option for captaincy this week.
FORWARD: Morata vs STK H
KEY STAT: Scored hattrick against Stoke City last time.
Prediction: Double-digit points.
Morata scored a goal last week after missing the previous game with an injury. Chelsea take on Stoke at home this weekend. Stoke are in poor form and Zouma cannot play this game against his parent which will only worsen their defense. Chelsea have good offensive records at Stamford Bridge and in the GW where Harry Kane and his CO do not feature, Morata is the ideal captain pick.
