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
GK: #Pope 4.9mill, 116p, TSB 10.0%, Form 6.3, BP 16
vs. Southampton (home)
Burnley have won three of their five Premier League matches against Southampton by a 1-0 scoreline, winning the last two. Is there a CS coming for Burnley defenders?).
Pope’s last 3 GW: 12 saves, 1 penalty save, 0 CS and 19p.
In their last 5 games, Burnley have conceded 1 goal in every match.
Owned by: 557,928 before this GW.
Transferred in by 49,694 new managers.
The Risk: Tom Heaton is back from injury. But we believe Pope will keep his spot as the nr.1.
DEF: #Van Dijk 5.5mill, 35p, TSB 6.1%, Form 2.7, BP 5
vs. West Ham (home)
2 cs in the last 3 matches

Liverpool have won their last two Premier League matches against West Ham United 4-0 and 4-1.
Owned by: 314,287 before this GW.
Transferred in by 24,449 new managers.
The Risk: Arnautovic is back from injury, and it looks like he hasn’t slowed down. Under D. Moyes West Ham have proved they can put the ball in the net.
MID: #Eriksen 9.2mill, 139p, TSB 14.8%, Form 5.0, BP 18

6 shots on target & 6 attempted assists (more than any other Leicester player) in the last 5 GWs.
