We’re finally back to seeing some actions in the English Premier League after a sudwhenden break caused by the death of the Queen of England that made the League postpone the matches for last week and even for this week, three matches have had to be postponed too (Brighton Vs Crystal Palace, Manchester United Vs Leeds United and Chelsea Vs Liverpool).
So, it is important to avoid players from these teams and if you can avoid it, don’t use your transfer option for this week, instead, save it for the next round of games. After this week’s games, club football will be going on an international break and you can use your two transfer after the breaks as we don’t know what type of shape and injuries players will be resuming with.

But first, a recap of the top performers from the previous round played before the brief hiatus. Brentford striker, Ivan Toney scored a hat-trick when his team defeated Leeds United 5-2 and he scored 17 FPL points for his efforts. Manchester United defeated Arsenal, 3-1, ending the unbeaten run of the Gunners and he deservedly got 18 FPL points for his two goals and one assist.
Brighton defeated Leicester 5-2 to round up the high scoring match for the week and their midfielder, Alex Mac Allister got 14 FPL points for scoring two goals. Young striker, Dominic Solanke also bagged a goal and an assist and for his efforts, he got 12 FPL points. Wolves midfielder, Daniel Podence scored the only goal when his team defeated.
Newcastle goalkeeper, Nick Pope kept a clean sheet against Crystal Palace and also made 9 saves to score 12 FPL points. Likewise, Everton goalkeeper kept a clean sheet and also made 8 saves to score 9 FPL points.
Top Picks For The Week……
Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has been scoring goals for fun and it is quite understandable why he’s the player that has been most captained by FPL players. But he will up against a very inspired Wolves team that has one of the most reliable goalkeepers in the FPL, David Raya.
Should the Citizens be able to triumph over Wolves, it’s almost a given certainty that Kevin De Bruyne and Joao Cancelo will be supplying the assist and it could be perfect opportunity for Ederson to also keep a clean sheet, though that has been next to impossible for the Brazilian in their last few matches.
With Allan Saint-Maximin out, Newcastle will have a huge task getting the better of Bournemouth and will be relying on new signing, Alexander Isak to supply the goals and Pope to keep another clean sheet at the other end.
Tottenham Hotspur will be facing Leicester and would be banking on Harry Kane to get the goals as Kane has struck more goals (19) against Leicester than any other opposition, including in each of the last four head to head wins. Special attention should be paid to Anthony Gordon of Everton, Martin Odegaaard and Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal.
