With Gameweek 17 just a few days away, we look at players who provide good options at a budget. We look at "Form", "Average Points Per Match","Goals Scored","Assists","Clean Sheets","Influence","Creativity","Threat","Passing Accuracy","Tackles Won" and "Bonus Points". Our Gameweek 17 choices are as follows:
DEF : Heurelho Gomes (WAT) - £4.5m
As a defensive option this gameweek, we focus on a goalkeeper who can easily bring about some points in the gameweeks to come. Gomes has managed to keep 5 clean sheets, rake up 4 bonus points and not get a single booking thus far. He has completed 379 passes, 294 long balls with a 56% passing accuracy. This gameweek, Watford face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, where Palace have lost 2 out of their 8 games played at home. Watford have won 4 out of their 8 games played away. Gomes has a favourable set of fixtures from gameweek 17 - 21 so he certainly has strong claims of getting more points behind his name!
MID : Jesse Lingard (MUN) - £5.8m
Lingard : 3 Goals & 3 Assist , Shots per game : 0.8
Man United H : 21 Goals Scored In 8 Matches [3 GC in 8 matches]
Bournemouth A : 10 Goals Conceded in 8 matches. [6 goals scored in 8 matches]
Next 3 Fixtures : BOU, wba, lei ( 2.3/5 )
Having started the last 3 fixtures for Man United, Lingard has been a very influential player in the United side. Taking 12 shots, with 6 being on target and 3 resulting in goals, providing 3 assists and getting 5 bonus points in the process, Lingard could very well be a cheap differential option. He has an 85% passing accuracy and has won 67% of his tackles made. This gameweek, Man United face Bournemouth at Old Trafford where United have scored 21 goals and won 7 out of their 8 games played there. Bournemouth however, have conceded 10 goals away from home. Lingard should definitely be an option as Man United have favourable fixtures from gameweek 17 - 24!
FWD : Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) - £5.2m
Calvert Lewin : 2 Goals & 6 Assist , Shots per game : 1.4
Everton A : 6 Goals Scored In 8 Matches [17 GC in 8 matches]
Newcastle H : 11 Goals Conceded in 8 matches. [9 goals scored in 8 matches]
Next 3 Fixtures : new, SWA, CHE ( 2.6/5 )
Being an integral part of the Everton attack, Calvert-Lewin has taken an impressive 29 shots, 11 of them being on target and 2 resulting in goals. He has provided 6 assists and accumulated 3 bonus points as well. Averaging 3.4 points per match, he has a 59% passing accuracy and has won 67% of his tackles made. Everton have favourable fixtures in their next 2 gameweeks and this gameweek face Newcastle away. Newcastle have conceded 11 goals at home while Everton have managed to score 6 goals away. Calvert-Lewin definitely has the credentials to see him finding the back of the net in the gameweeks to come!
