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 vs STK H
FIXTURE: Stoke at Home
KEY STAT: The only goalkeeper to hit a century points in FPL this season.
PREDICTION: Clean sheet
Manchester United are the team with the most clean sheets in the league. Also, they have only conceded 5 goals at Old Trafford in the league games. They take on managerless Stoke side who are in poor run of games, who have only scored 2 goals in their last 5 league games/
DEFENDER: Alonso vs LEI H
Fixture: Leicester City at home
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, the FPL managers, care as long as they deliver points? Chelsea have managed 10 clean sheets this season. In addition to that, their left wingback has managed 2 goals and 1 assists in the last 5 league games. Chelsea take on Leicester City at home.
Mid-Fielder: Lingard vs STK H
Key stat: Highly affordable and is in form of his life.
Prediction: Involvement in multiple games.
Lessi, Lingardinho, well these words are enough to describe how this almost forgotten United player has been thriving recently, with 7 goals and 4 assist so far having only featured in recent weeks. He is not just bandwagon, but someone worth investing from United who have been unreliable prospect in terms of attack in FPL. As mentioned earlier, Stoke are in crisis and are leaking goals and we might have to witness his weird celebrations multiple times this weekend.
Forward: Kane vs EVE H
Fixture: Everton at home
KEY STAT: Leading goal scorer in the league.
Prediction: Double-digit points.
Despite delivering points inconsistently in FPL, we definitely cannot question Harry Kane's form. He has taken the max shots on goal in the last 4 league games. With all premium striker either facing tricky fixtures or being in a dip of form this weekend or Kane is the one, we have our bets on him.
