Top Picks For The Week

Kai Havertz

If you were to be asked to list down the most in-form players in the league, Kai Havertz is likely to be in the top five at the very least. Indeed, scoring 4 goals and assisting another in the last 4 matches helps us to be sure of his form, as managers. Chelsea take on Southampton in FPL GW32, a team that is winless in 4 matches. In this time, the Saints have conceded 13 big chances, only Newcastle have conceded more, but the Magpies have played a game more. In fact, Ralph Hassenhuttl’s men are the fourth-worst in the league for big chances given away(70) across the campaign.

Matt Doherty

What was supposed to happen at the beginning of the season is happening now. Matt Doherty, being played in his favorite position is proving himself to be at the levels of the likes of Trent, Robertson level for us managers in FPL. Since returning to the starting eleven on Matchday 27, The Irishman has registered two goals and 4 assists in 6 matches. In fact, since then, he is joint top with Harry Kane for points in FPL with 70 points. Meanwhile, Spurs’ FPL GW32 opponents Aston Villa are on a three-game losing streak. Only Everton, Burnley, and Newcastle have given away more goals in this time. Furthermore, no team has conceded more % of chances down the left-hand side than Aston Villa in the league across the season. Doherty would be looking to exploit exactly that.

Kelechi Iheanacho

It is about this time of the year last season when Kelechi Iheanacho was on a hot streak and tore teams apart. In the last couple of games, we’ve seen hints of that player coming back to life again. If you were to analyze the Nigerian’s Premier League career, it is clear to see that he is a streak player. Brendan Rodgers’ men have winnable fixtures all the way through the end of the season. Seven out of their next ten games have an FDR rating of 2. They also have three double GWs on the horizon.

Maxwel Cornet

After starting the season off on fire Cornet’s form had dipped until last night. After scoring 5 goals in his first 8 matches, Cornet registered just 1 goal in his next 11 appearances. However, last he pulled off a dramatic victory for Burnley against Everton wherein he got himself a goal and an assist. Burnley have an incredible run of games coming up.All but one of their remaining nine games have an FDR rating of 3 or below. Six of them have the rating as 2.
