Bandwagons or proven players, the start of the Premier League always brings this dilemma to the FPL managers. Here are our players to watch for GW2:
Goalkeeper: Joe Hart vs Watford Home
Priced at 4.5M, Joe is the cheapest route to the defensively solid Burnley side. Burnley only conceded 3 shots on target in their opening away fixtures against Southampton. All of which were saved by Joe making him earn 1 extra point for saves. Burnley take on Watford at home this weekend, and we predict them to manage two clean sheets in a row.
Defender: Benjamin Mendy vs Huddersfield Home
This shark started with a bang in the opening fixture against Arsenal and has already risen in price. Fixtures are only getting better for Manchester City, and if not among the 16% of FPL managers who own him then it might hurt your points tally severely in the few weeks to come. This premium defender can get returns on both ends of the pitch. Huddersfield were badly beaten by Chelsea on their opening fixture and it will not be a surprise if they get hammered again at the Etihad this weekend.
Mid Fielder: Mohammed Salah vs Crystal Palace Away
Salah has continued his fine run of scoring from last season. Liverpool now have the favorable run of games for the next 3 fixtures. Under that condition, not having a player that is owned by more than half of FPL managers is a huge gamble. Liverpool take on Brighton this weekend who were all over the places in their opening fixture.
Forward: Sergio Aguero vs Huddersfield Home
Sergio was unlucky not to find the back of the net against Arsenal last week. However, this Argentinian should be licking his lips looking at their next 6 Premier League fixtures. The injury of KDB should have little impact in these games as Bernardo Silva has started the season amazingly well. Sergio had most FPL points last season than any other players. He might not play the entire 90 minutes in the most games, but his goalscoring ability is second to none. He is the safest captain for this game week.
