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: #Forster [£5.0m] :
Mauricio Pellegrino is known for strong defense, and the team had a really good pre season. Forster is a nailed on starter and takes on Swansea at home, who will pose a little threat on attack as they are without their main duo: Sigurdsson and Llorente.
DEF: #Alonso [£7.0m] :
Chelsea's defense have been amazingly great under Conte, and they have a great chance of getting clean sheet when they host Burnley, who have poor record on road. Alonso had a great debut season in Premier League, and as a LWB, he comes with great attacking prospect.
MID: #De_Bruyne [£10.0m] :
Pep has a great attacking wealth at his disposal. KDB is probably the only nailed on attacking player at City; he has had an amazing pre season. City take on newbie Brighton, and most of their attack is sure to come through this man.
FWD: #Lukaku [£11.5m] :
Having played number of games, Lukaku has settled well in the new team. The most picked FPL player is sure to have multiple chances to score against West Ham, and undoubtedly will be the most popular captain choice in the inaugural GW of 2017/18 season. It will be a huge gamble not to have him in the squad.
