FPL Season 2019/2020 – Gameweek 3 Preview

“Is this weekend’s away game at Villa the one for Sigurdsson (pictured above on set-piece duty for Iceland) to start offering some attacking returns?” (CC by 3.0) by Oleg Bkhambri

After a high-scoring opening gameweek and a pretty low-scoring second week (average of 41 points), we have already arrived at gameweek 3. With two datasets (read: rounds) under our belt, we can now start getting a better idea of what we can expect from each Premier League outfit this season. Most teams are settling into their preferred starting line-ups, the role of many new FPL assets is becoming more defined, and we can even see a few value picks emerge, at least for the first few weeks of the season. Besides big hitters like Sterling and Salah, players such as Burnley’s Ashley Barnes (£6.6m, goals, points), Norwich striker Teemu Pukki (£6.7m, goals, points) and Man United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.6m, points) are showing early form and medium to long-term promise. This weekend is lining up another tasty set of fixtures for us, so let’s move on to our picks for gameweek 3.

Don’t forget: the deadline for gameweek 3 is set at 19h00 (BST), tomorrow, Friday, August 23rd..

How did our picks for the previous gameweek fare?

PICK PLAYER OPPONENT POINTS
Premium Raheem Sterling Spurs (home) 6
Premium P-E Aubameyang Burnley (away) 6
Non-premium Josh King Villa (away) 6
Non-premium Roberto Firmino Southampton (away) 8
Differential Teemu Pukki Newcastle (home) 17
Differential Jurgen Locadia West Ham (away) 0
Captain Raheem Sterling Spurs (home) 12

Premium picks

When you score 4 goals and record 26 FPL points in the opening two games of the season, and you face Bournemouth (away) in the third gameweek, you’re going to be a stand-out premium pick. We’re talking to you, Raheem Sterling (£12.2m). We recommended him for the very first round and we’re doing so again this week, simply because he’s on fire. Besides his goals, Sterling is also the player who has had the most big chances so far (5) and the most shots inside the box (10). As far as shots on target go, only Norwich sensation Pukki has recorded more (6 vs 7). Sunday’s opponent Bournemouth, on the other hand, has allowed opponents 6 big chances over the first two games, only West Ham allowed more (10). Sure, FPL is not an exact science, but… get Sterling.

Our second premium pick of the week is Tottenham’s very own, Harry Kane (£11.0m), who is facing a Newcastle side (at home) that has so far failed to make any real impression. The England striker had a frustrating 90 minutes last time out as he recorded exactly zero attempts on goal against City at the Etihad, but he did net twice in the dying minutes of the season’s opening game against Villa, for a total of 13 FPL points. Last weekend, Norwich kind of tore the Newcastle defence to shreds as Teemu Pukki scored three. With all respect to a Norwich side that is positively presenting itself amongst the English footballing elite, it does make us think: if the Canaries and Pukki can do that to the Magpies, what could Spurs and Kane be capable of in front of their own fans? It’s just hard to imagine Spurs (and Harry Kane for that matter) not scoring on Saturday.

Non-premium picks

As we said earlier, now that we are a few weeks into the season, some interesting options outside of the premium bracket are emerging. One of those options seems to be Manchester United’s Anthony Martial (£7.7m), who has already enjoyed two price rises as a result of his 2 goals and 14 FPL points from the season’s opening two fixtures. United’s start was far from easy, with Chelsea rolling up to Old Trafford before a visit to Wolves, but the Red Devils took four points from those games and Martial scored a goal in both. Out of all midfielders in the game, only City’s Sterling has had more touches (20) in the opposing penalty area than the Frenchman (15), which is largely thanks to his positioning as a forward. This makes Martial an out-of-position midfielder for a top-six club who is in good form and who has a pretty decent run of fixtures coming up next, starting with Crystal Palace at home this weekend. Expect more price rises for the United man over the coming weeks.

Our second non-premium pick for gameweek 3 is also a United player, namely £55-million signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m). This is not so much because we’re so impressed by the Red Devils, though they have shown plenty of positives in the first two weeks of the 2019/20 season, but simply because, like Martial, AWB has looked like good value in two difficult games and now has a good run of fixtures coming up. The young English right-back has brought his owners 9 FPL points from two games and their home fixture against Palace on Saturday seems to scream “Clean sheet!”. On top of that, the season’s first two games have shown that Palace’s left flank is something of a playground for opposing right-wingers, midfielder and right-backs. Everton right-back Seamus Coleman recorded 17 points in gameweek 1, while Sheffield’s right flank had a field day last weekend, which is best illustrated by John Lundstram’s 13 points. Coincidence? Possibly. Enough reasons to bring Wan-Bissaka into your squad? Definitely.

A differential pick or two

For our differential picks this week, we have gone with two players who, for different reasons, still need to get their engines properly running. The first is Brighton’s Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) was an unused substitute in the opening game, but introduced himself to the Premier League with a bang the next week by scoring a goal in his side’s 1-1 draw with West Ham and earning himself 7 FPL points in the process (the VAR also invalidated an earlier goal of his). The flashy Belgian was one of the most active Seagulls, as he took four shots on goal, three of which came from inside the area. No player on the pitch created more danger. Brighton under Graham Potter look more exciting than they have in a long while, while Saturday’s opponents Southampton have lost their first two Premier League games (3-0 at Burnley and 1-2 at Saint Mary’s to Liverpool). We expect Trossard to start against the Saints and we wouldn’t be surprised to see more attacking returns from him.

While Trossard’s ownership is extremely low (0.9%), Watford’s Gerard Deulofeu (£6.4) is owned by a few more FPL managers (4.1%). That’s still more than low enough to be considered a differential though, and the Spaniard is a proven FPL asset. Like Watford as a whole, he has had an underwhelming start of the 2019/20 campaign, with just 3 points from two games (Brighton at home, when he had to go off at half-time due to an stomach illness, and Everton away). Next up are leaky West Ham though, and we can see Deulofeu opening his goal account (or at least his assist account) against the Hammers. With 10 goals (and 5 assists), he was the Hornets’ top scorer last year, and with West Ham, he’s facing a side that has conceded six goals in the first two games of the season, more than any other team. His price has already dropped by £0.1m as a result of (too) quick judgement by many FPL managers, so you could get him cheaply before he starts returning points on a more regular basis again.

The captaincy

As far as the armband goes, gameweek 3 is offering plenty of interesting options, starting with Man City’s Raheem Sterling. The nimble dribbler is facing one of the most obliging defences on Sunday on the back of two consecutive wins in which he scored 4 goals and brought his owners a whopping 26 FPL points. Our money is on him getting in on the action again at the Vitality Stadium, making it three consecutive returns and unleashing a complete transfer frenzy in the FPL universe.

According to the FISO Forum FPL Captain Poll for GW3 it’s simply between Kane and Sterling with Salah and Martial afterthoughts.

Underpriced players who could prove a bargain as the new Premier League season gathers pace

At last the new Premier League season is underway. Out in the middle, the action so far has been predictable, with the usual suspects hitting the ground running and the Premier League new boys finding the step up to be something of a challenge. It’s still very early days, however, and while it doesn’t take a genius to know that Mane, Kane and Aguero are always going to bring home the bacon, they have price tags to match. 

Look a little further down the table, however, and there are some gems to be gathered in the sub-£7million range. How many of the following four rising stars made it into your final fantasy league squad?

Ben Chilwell

Those who love to back an outside shot will always have an affection for Leicester. In the world of football betting, those 5000/1 odds from August 2015 will never be repeated. But from a fantasy football perspective, their 22 year old defender Ben Chillwell, looked like a solid punt at £5.5 million. Those who cashed in on the success of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson last year might well find them overpriced this year, and Chillwell is a solid alternative. 

Callum Robinson

Sheffield United will be pleased as punch to have emerged from their first Premier League encounter in 12 years with a point and then to win their next match. The Blades are expected to struggle this year, but from a fantasy football perspective, that means there are bargains to be had if you know where to look. The team’s record signing Callum Robinson is listed as a midfielder, but has been pushed up front. Last year, he found the net 12 times for Preston, despite limited appearances due to injury. He looked to be in great form pre-season, and might just turn out to have been one of the best picks around for £5.5 million. 

Ross Barkley

The headlines might be all about Manchester United’s opening week demolition job, but those looking to the long-term could be sitting pretty if they chose to invest £6 million in Chelsea’s Ross Barkley. He took the opportunity pre-season to press his case as the man to step into Eden Hazard’s boots, impressing with a magnificent free kick in the fixture against Reading. He’s likely to be the set-piece man to watch in the weeks ahead although has big competition from last year’s Derby man Mason Mount.

Stamford Bridge

Mason Greenwood

A Manchester United forward for £4.5 million? It’s understandable that many looked straight past the 17 year old, assuming that his chances of time out in the middle would be negligible given the strength of the overall squad. But think again, Greenwood was just too good to ignore pre-season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that he will definitely get first team opportunities. As the rumours of Lukaku’s departure came to fruition at the eleventh hour of the transfer window, Greenwood could feature more than people are expecting, and prove to be the most shrewd investment of them all. And even if he doesn’t play it means you have more budget to spend on the premium players.

Why Should Sports Betting be Legalised In The U.S?

Sports betting in the U.S, though a big industry, is illegal in most states except for a few namely, Nevada, Oregon, Delaware and Montana. It started in 1992 when U.S senator Bill Bradley made sports betting illegal and gamblers had to travel to Nevada to try their luck.

According to him, betting on sports damaged the sport’s integrity and killed the real aim behind playing sports, which was to encourage people to take part in physical activities and enjoy themselves. People were more concerned with winning money than to actually see sports promoted. Hence, Bill thought that sports is more about sportsmanship than a gambling marathon.

The fact of the matter was that Bill was keen on imposing a full ban but Congress didn’t agree. Instead, they passed PASPA (Professional And Ameteur Sports Protection Act) and in 1992 that made sports betting legal in 4 states.

According to U.S polls, around 60% people want sports betting to be legalized in the country. While many also disagree with it, the support seems to be huge as advantages are pretty clear.

Let’s have a look at the advantages of legalized sports betting:

Revenue From Tax

According to stats, around $4.2 trillion is collected by U.S government as income tax and payroll taxes each year. The tax money can rise substantially if sports betting is legalised in the country.

If we consider Nevada sports books alone, they generate around $4 billion a year from legal bets. While $50 to $400 billion are made due to illegal bets.

Majority of people have to bet illegally on SBO due to the ban. If we make it legal, we will be able to tax this illegal betting as well.

Eliminate Illegal Betting Market

Illegal betting market is not only destroying the country’s economy but reports say that criminal lords are also involved in illegal betting.

If sports betting gets legalised in the country then the country’s economy will rise and the crime rate (illegal betting) will decrease.

Preserve Integrity Of Sports

Illegal betting degrades a sport. People begin to see a sport as nothing but an activity to create illegal money. This affects many businesses, especially, licensed sportsbook. This is why many licensed agencies are also in support of legalising sports betting.

They believe such a move will be helpful for the sport in the long run as more people will then enter the industry, and this will also help sports as a whole.

Make Gamblers Happy

Sports betting pulls bettors knee deep into its activities. Despite of knowing that sports betting is illegal in most states, not only from U.S, but people from overseas too, are betting illegally.

Making sports betting legal will make everyone happy including the bettors, bookies, sportsbooks because then no one has to worry about being caught. This would also encourage more people to try sports betting.

Verdict

Many bettors think that it’s about time to legalise sports betting system in the U.S so that the country’s economy can rise and everyone can stay happy.

FPL Season 2019/2020 – Gameweek 2 Preview

“City’s Raheem Sterling got off to a blistering start and is facing Spurs at home next”   (CC by 2.0) by Brad Tutterow

With an average score of 65, the 2019/2020 FPL season got off to a flying start. Some of this season’s most premium assets just needed one game to show why they are worth the investment. The likes of Mo Salah (12 points), Raheem Sterling (20 points) and Harry Kane (13 points) returned big, but they weren’t the only ones. Budget central defender Lewis Dunk (11 points), new Bournemouth recruit Chris Mepham (10 points) and Burnley’s star forward Ashley Barnes (13 points) (who we highlighted last week as a differential) defied their low price tags by delivering big hauls as well. With the star players being priced as high as they are this season, the search for consistent scorers in the lower and budget brackets is going to be crucial for a successful season. Gameweek 1 has shown that there are plenty of points potential outside the premium category, now Gameweek 2 will hopefully reveal a bit more about consistency and early purple patches.

Don’t forget: the deadline for Gameweek 2 is set at 12h30 (BST), on  Saturday, August 17th.

How did our picks for the previous gameweek fare?

PICK PLAYER OPPONENT POINTS
Premium Mo Salah Norwich (home) 12
Premium Harry Kane Villa (home) 13
Non-premium Callum Wilson Sheffield (home) 5
Non-premium Gylfi Sigurdsson Palace (away) 3
Differential Kyle Walker-Peters Villa (home) 2
Differential Ashley Barnes Watford (home) 13
Captain Salah Norwich (home) 24

Premium picks

We chose Salah and Kane as our premium picks last weekend over Raheem Sterling (£12.1m), as the young Englishman had an away game. Our picks brought in 12 and 13 points respectively, but Sterling took home the Player of the Gameweek award by scoring a hat-trick, winning 3 bonus points and recording a total score of 20 points. After such a performance and with Leroy Sané out injured while Pep seems to be easing Aguero into the starting eleven, Sterling is highly likely to start again this Saturday when City host Spurs. It’s not an easy game by any stretch (remember last season’s Champions League quarter-finals?), but on a good day, Pep’s men can demolish any kind of opposition, especially at home. As far as Sterling is concerned, he has played 14 times against Spurs in his career, with a current record of 7 goals and 3 assists. Miss out at your own peril just like with pokies syndicate.casino

We were considering Mo Salah as our second premium pick for gameweek 2, but seeing as the Egyptian just played an intense 120 minutes against Chelsea for the European Super Cup on Wednesday evening, we’re going with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m). The Gabonese forward ended last season as the joint-top scorer with 22 goals and he continued his fine goal-scoring form against Newcastle. The Gunners found it difficult to break down the Magpies, but a single strike from PEA in the 58th minute was enough to take the three points back to the Emirates. Next opponents Burnley are one of Aubameyang’s favourite Premier League opponents, as underlined by his record against them: 6 goals, 1 assists and 42 FPL points in three encounters. With just two shots on target and three attempts off target, the Gunners failed to really impress against Newcastle, but we expect them to turn up in more convincing fashion for this season’s first home game.

Non-premium picks

Bournemouth somewhat disappointed in their opening game of the 2019/20 campaign by drawing 1-1 against newly-promoted Sheffield United at the Vitality Stadium. Thanks to their opening fixtures (Sheffield home, Villa away), several attacking Cherries assets were popular in the build-up to gameweek 1. Their meagre three shots on target will have caused some FPL managers to doubt their choices, but we would recommend sticking with your Cherries at least one more round. One of the players who disappointed a bit was Josh King (£6.5m). The Norwegian forward took one shot at goal and created one key chance, while he also completed three dribbles, the most of any players on the pitch. Bournemouth will be looking to redeem themselves at Villa Park and even though the Villains put on a more than decent display at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend, they might well concede again against the Cherries on Saturday and King might well be involved. And cherries are sometimes involved in new slots games Australia.

Our second non-premium pick is actually on the border of higher-end mid-priced assets and lower-end premium assets. Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) came on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Wednesday’s European Super Cup final and his impact was immediately noticeable. He set up the equalising goal a few minutes into the second half and then provided another assists for the second goal five minutes into the extra time as well. The Brazilian attacker was unplayable for the Chelsea defence at times, and Salah (and especially Salah) benefited enormously from his introduction. In the Premier League’s opening game last weekend, Firmino also provided an assist to end the game with 5 FPL points. He had four attempts at goal that game, which is double the amount Mo Salah had (who recorded 12 points) and he also completed four dribbles, which is also double the amount of dribbles completed by his Egyptian team mate. Against a leaky Southampton back line, Firmino is expected to start and, if all goes well, rack up a few more attacking returns.

A differential pick or two

Norwich were welcomed back to the Premier League by a pretty rampant Liverpool side that put four goals past them in the first 45 minutes. In the second half, the Reds eased down and the Canaries managed to get back into the game which eventually resulted in a consolation goal by Teemu Pukki (£6.5m), last season’s Championship top scorer (29 goals). The Finnish forward recorded 7 FPL points, courtesy of his goal and 1 bonus point, and it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see him book attacking returns again coming Saturday when Norwich host Steve Bruce’s Newcastle. While it remains to be seen if the Canaries are defensively sturdy enough to survive in the Premier League, their first game of the campaign has shown that they can create chances and score goals. At his current price, Pukki could be a very decent budget option and a real differential pick.

Brighton impressed in their first official game under new manager Graham Potter. The Seagulls swept away an admittedly disappointing Watford at Vicarage Road three to nil and this weekend West Ham are rolling up to the AmEx. The Hammers were hammered by Man City in gameweek 1 and even though  that game might not be entirely representative of their true quality, it can’t have been too good for their confidence. Brighton, on the other hand, will be brimming with confidence and Dutch forward Jurgen Locadia (£5.5m) will be hoping to be involved in the action from the start again. Before being taken off in the 63rd minute, he made two attempts at goal, one of which was on target, and he generally looked lively on the left wing and up front. Competition is fierce in the Brighton attack, with new signings Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard vying for starting spots as well, but it looks like Locadia will start again against West Ham on Saturday. His current price tag makes him an interesting option for the position of third striker in your squad.

The captaincy

Our suggestion for the armband this week is Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling. The sky blue dribbler had some serious competition from the likes of Aubameyang (home against Burnley), Mo Salah (away to Southampton) and this coming Sunday’s opponent Harry Kane, but his hat-trick away to West Ham last weekend convinced us. City did not seem to need any time to get their goal-scoring machine running and a 0-5 away victory will have definitely boosted their confidence. Facing Spurs at home is never an easy task, but the Cityzens can beat anyone at the Etihad at any time.

The FISO FPL GW2 Captain Poll does put Salah well ahead of Aubameyang and then Sterling but these are the 3 leading contenders for the armband this gameweek.

Looking to make your FPL season more exciting? – We might have something for you..

Pre-season is heating up and I am sure you are already busy creating your first FPL drafts. We know you all love the official Premier League fantasy game. It is great fun, but you can’t really win any prizes, as there are only a few, and you are up against millions of opponents! So, for those, that might seek an extra amount of thrill, we did some research and found an interesting tournament with a better prize structure – FanTeam.

This is a premier league season game that pays out prizes to more than 15% of the entries. Real money prizes of up to 50,000 euros to the winner! Of course, there is a buy-in too, so it is not as if they are giving away money for free, but having big, real prizes really increases the excitement with premier league season-long fantasy football! We have been testing FanTeam’s platform in the last few weeks and can recommend it. It is fun, easy to understand, clean and backed up by a stock-listed company, based in Norway.

A first look at Fanteam’s  Premier League Season 19/20

At the first glance, Fanteam’s season tournament and the official premier league event are quite similar. This allows for regular FPL players to quickly get started.

But of course, some differences exist, so let’s have a look at the season game in detail.

Prize Structure

As previously mentioned, Fanteam has a completely different prize structure. This year they offer a minimum guarantee of 250.000€ to win amongst the players. The prizes for the main event are spread among the first 15%, which ensures that even newer players will have a good chance of recovering their buy-in. The first prize is 50.000€ and should be easier to reach with the 12,000 player entry cap, than on the official FPL tournament, with millions of participants. The most important facts for you shortly summarised:

  • 250,000€ minimum guarantees
  • 50,000€ for the first prize
  • 1,250 prizes in total!
  • Prizes to the best monthly manager
  • Prizes to the best gameweek manager

Additional Side-Events

Fanteam offers additional chances to receive prizes even if you did not perform so well in the first few gameweeks. This is why Fanteam has a manager of the month award, with a prize of 1,000€ for first place. In addition to that, Fanteam will introduce a manager of the gameweek prize this year, which gives out 400€ every week to the top performers.

Different Rules

For you players, there are some minor changes, which you should note before you get started. First of all, Fanteam has no chips. They preferred to keep things more simple, and the only thing similar to a chip are the two wildcards for transfers, which the official FPL also applies.

Considering the time of the price changes, you might want to know that they happen at random times, whenever a drastic demand increase or decrease happens.

There are also some slight points scoring differences. At Fanteam, the midfielder and forward receive 1 point more if they play the entire game. There are also no bonus points, instead they implied an “impact” factor, which is awarded to the player with a positive or negative point, depending on whether the team was winning or losing while he was on the pitch. The entire rules can be found at Fanteam.

Conclusion

We believe that the season long FPL game at Fanteam is an excellent option for those, who are looking to raise the stakes a bit. It can be played easily alongside the official FPL game, since the main concept is very similar and the prices don’t vary too much either.

We, at FISO, are definitely looking forward to play tournaments at Fanteam this season and we will keep you updated along the way.

While customers can currently get support by live chat, Skype, and email, we will likely see an increase in customer service quality as their company team grows and updates their process for supporting their clients.

More Mobile Friendly

As of right now, Sbobet’s mobile website is alive and well, although it is definitely on the more basic side – comparatively speaking. This company’s mobile site does indeed offer the usual services as far as performance and features, although it does not offer the optimal convenience that some competitors do provide. For example, Sbobet is currently lacking a mobile app, which can cause performance issues for some mobile devices.

Fortunately, the normal mobile website does get the job done without any issues for most portable devices. This leaves Sbobet at a great starting point for growing their mobile presence in the future. Within the next decade, we can expect a more advanced mobile setup from this company.

(Possibly) Lower Betting Limits

Rules and regulations that are enforced by licensing entities can be difficult, if not impossible to predict. However, one thing we should not be surprised to see is a lower betting limit being enforced. Up until now, Sbobet has been the go-to place for high rollers looking to place their bets, and who knows how drastically this can change.

Larger Variety of Wager Options

The current betting markets of this website are not terribly impressive. Sbobet covers about 500 events every week, which pales in comparison to some of their larger competitors. Outside of their Asian handicap wager options, they have a lot of room for improvement. Over the next few years we will see an increase in market coverage for this site to attract a larger client base. The primary focus of this site is football, but they also cover more diverse options as well including boxing, cricket, water polo, tennis, and more.

All in all, it is undeniable that this company is the fruit of the loom when it comes to placing a bet in the Asian handicap market, whether it be now or within the next decade. A few small aspects may be changing for the worse, but their overall trajectory is certainly on a positive rise. This popular online gambling site is sure to only grow and expand as they adapt to modern web wager technology to maximize their user interface convenience.

FPL Season 2019/2020 – Gameweek 1 Preview

Welcome back to the Fantasy Premier League! After our series of club previews to open the 2019/2020 season, we are now back with our first gameweek preview of the campaign. It’s possible that we say this every year, but this year, it looks more difficult than ever to put together a decent 15-man squad within the limits of our £100 million budget. In an effort to  help you during the build-up to gameweek 1 as well as throughout the season, we have made some minor changes to the structure of our weekly gameweek preview pieces. Instead of providing you with three premium picks, two differential picks and two captain picks each week, we will recommend two premium picks, two non-premium (say £9.5m or lower, more or less) picks, two differential picks and a general piece on our captaincy recommendation before the start of each gameweek. Considering the hefty price tags of many of the promising FPL targets, we figured it will be interesting to place a bit more focus on those non-premium, possibly budget-enabling picks this season that allow you to bring in as many premium assets as possible without ruining the price and points balance in your squad too much.

Don’t forget: the deadline for the first gameweek of the 2019/20 season is set at 19h00 (BST) tomorrow Friday, August 9th.

Premium picks

It’s hard to pick another premium asset than Liverpool’s Mo Salah (£12.5m) for gameweek 1. After a disappointing AFCON run, the Egyptian wizard has been back with the squad for some weeks already and everything points at him starting coming Friday as the Reds host new boys Norwich. Last season’s highest scorer in terms of FPL points (259, courtesy of 22 goals, 12 assists and 18 bonus points) is once again listed as a midfielder in the official game, while he is expected to turn up in Liverpool’s number nine position more often than not this season. Salah performed extraordinarily well against promoted teams last season, recording an average of 7.66 FPL points in those games. Add to that the facts that Norwich boasted just the seventh-best defence in their league last season (57 goals conceded in 46 games) and have kept just one clean sheet during their pre-season campaign, and Liverpool’s star man becomes something of a no-brainer.

With players like Raheem Sterling (away to West Ham) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (away to Newcastle) also lining up for favourable fixtures in the opening gameweek, there’s plenty of choice in this bracket, but our second premium pick is Tottenham’s very own, Harry Kane (£11.0m). Spurs are facing newly-promoted Aston Villa at their brand new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and they will be raring to go in front of their crowd. Due to injuries, Kane had his statistically least successful season since 2013/14 last year, but he still recorded 160 FPL points from 2423 minutes of Premier League football, thanks to 17 goals and 6 assists. The Villans finished fifth in the Championship last season and were promoted after winning the play-offs. During the regular season, they conceded 61 goals in 46 games, meaning that no less than ten other teams in the league could boast a better defensive record. Villa spent a whopping €148 million on new players already, so the team is going to a whole lot different to last year’s, but you can’t expect it to glue together perfectly from the get-go. It’s hard to see Spurs not putting a few past them on Saturday and when they do, Kane will most likely be in on the action.

Non-premium picks

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding Bournemouth assets in the build-up to gameweek 1, thanks to their favourable opening set of fixtures and the way they hit the ground running at the start of last season. Cherries forward Callum Wilson (£8.0m) had an incredible season last year, as he scored 14 goals and gave 12 assists for a total of 168 FPL points. In combination with his price tag of £6.5m at the time, he quickly became as close to essential as a player can get in FPL. For the 2019/20 season, his price was increased by £1.5m, but he can still be more than worth it in our opinion. In the first gameweek, Bournemouth are hosting promoted Sheffield United before visiting Aston Villa in gameweek 2, both of which are games they are expected to win (comfortably). Wilson looks like he’s in form after scoring his third goal of the pre-season against French side Lyon last weekend, a game in which he also provided 2 assists, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him net on Saturday as well.

Everton’s creator-in-chief Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0m) has been an FPL favourite since his 2014/15 season with Swansea and he looks like a promising pick again this season. The Icelandic midfield maestro racked up a nice 182 points last season after recording 13 goals, 6 assists and 15 clean sheets for the Toffees. The acquisition of highly-rated players like Juventus striker Moise Kean and reigning world champion Djibril Sidibé should only boost Sigurdsson’s appeal, as he is a key part of Marco Silva’s set-up. He is also on penalties as well as on plenty of corners and direct free-kicks, so his current price tag could turn out to be something of a steal. With Crystal Palace (away), Watford (home) and Villa (away) as Everton’s opening three fixtures, Sigurdsson could start the 2019/20 campaign in spectacular fashion.

A differential pick or two

Our first differential could be a big one, at least in the opening gameweeks. Talented Spurs right-back Kyle Walker-Peters (£5.0m) looks set to feature from the start at home to new boys Aston Villa on Saturday, a fixture in which Spurs will definitely dominate and a clean sheet is a real possibility. With last season’s first pick at right-back Kieran Trippier gone, and both Serge Aurier and Juan Foyth currently out injured, it’s difficult to see how KWP would not be part of the starting eleven. That being said, even when fit, neither Aurier nor Foyth has the starting spot at right-back nailed down right now, which means that Walker-Peters could make the position his permanently if he performs well in the first few gameweeks of the season. Should that be the case, then we have got a relative bargain at our hands as part of last season’s third-best Premier League defence.

Our second differential pick had a pretty great 2018/19 season, his bargain price did not increase for the coming season and he should be on (most) penalties again this season. Burnley’s Ashley Barnes (£6.5m) scored 12 goals, gave 3 assists and recorded 13 bonus points for a more than decent total of 122 FPL points, which comes down to 18.77 points per million. The Clarets open the season by hosting Southampton, an outfit that conceded a worrying 65 goals last season, though it should be noted that the Saints have shown remarkable improvement since the appointment of manager Ralph Hasenhüttl at the start of December 2018. After the Southampton game, Burnley face Arsenal (away), Wolves (away) and Liverpool at home, which is not an easy run by any stretch (though there could be goals for Barnes in the first two games), but after that, the schedule clears up considerably until gameweek 12. Amongst others, they face Norwich at home, Villa away, Sheffield away and West Ham at home over that period. At his current price, Barnes could be an excellent option as your second or third striker, allowing you to spend budget elsewhere while he records some attacking returns as a nailed-on part of Sean Dyche’s Clarets.

The captaincy

For the first gameweek of this Premier League season, the most popular options for the armband will probably be Liverpool’s Mo Salah (at home to Norwich), Man City’s Raheem Sterling (and possibly Sergio Aguero, away to West Ham) and Spurs striker Harry Kane (at home to Villa) as demonstrated by the FISO Forum FPL GW1 Captain Poll. Each of these players represents a high probability of a big haul in the opening weekend, and they are all reliable candidates for the captaincy. If we have to choose, we would go with Liverpool’s Egyptian talisman, as he is last season’s top FPL points scorer facing off against a newly promoted team that wasn’t exactly known for its defensive solidity last season in the Championship. The same would go for Harry Kane though, in terms of opposition, while Sterling is facing a transformed Hammers side that could positively surprise us this season.
