The @FPLGeneral has looked at his FPL Watchlist and picked out five options he thinks could do well this weekend. These players can be considered for your FPL transfers and for the £2,500 Gameweek 7 contest on Fantasy Bet.
Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)
An FPL legend is back on the radar this week after Emerson picked up another injury on his return to action. Alonso came on to replace the Italian in the Liverpool game after just fifteen minutes.
The Blues have failed to register any clean sheets so far but they have arguably the best run of fixtures of all teams over the next six gameweeks. With Kante back to protect the back four, surely, hey will shut out a few teams out over the coming weeks.
We know what Alonso can do going forward, he’s got 15 goals and 18 assists in his FPL career. It will be no surprise to see him build on those numbers while Emerson is out. Don’t pretend you’re not tempted…
Heung-Min Son (Spurs)
Spurs are a bit of a mess right now, losing against Leicester last weekend and getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup midweek on penalties by the mighty Colchester, but Son is always an exciting FPL option.
He’s delivered attacking returns in each of his last three appearances (2 goals and 2 assists) and Southampton at home this weekend looks great on paper for the South Korean. Over the last three gameweeks, he’s had 10 goal attempts. He said after his brace against Palace that he’s desperate to get his first premier league hat-trick.
Son is not in my FPL team, but he will be my Fantasy Bet captain in Gameweek 7. I fancy him to go big against the Saints.
John McGinn (Aston Villa)
When McGinn gets possession, he’s got one thing on his mind, shoot. It doesn’t matter how far from the goal he is. That’s what we like to see in a fantasy asset, a player who shoots on sight.
He’s registered more goal attempts (9) than any other midfielder over the last two gameweeks. The Scot scored his second goal of the season, a great finish, in the 3-2 defeat to Arsenal last Sunday and there’s sure to be plenty more to come this season. A home tie against Burnley this weekend could bring more joy.
The worry with McGinn going into the season was that he’d pick up a lot of yellow cards because of his all-action, tough tacking style, but after six games, he’s yet to be booked.
Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)
Zero goals, zero assists after six matches. What has happened to Wilfried? The Ivorian scored 10 goals and chipped in with 11 assists in 2018/19.
If you could pick one team to face to get your scoring boots back on, it would be Norwich. Tim Krul hasn’t kept a clean sheet yet this season, shipping 14 goals in the process.
Zaha could be a nice differential in the Grand Weekend for Gameweek 7.
Tammy Abraham (Chelsea)
The Chelsea man should have scored against Liverpool with that great one on one chance that Adrian saved. Before that game, he was on an incredible run of 7 goals in 3 matches. He’s amazing value this season.
As mentioned above, Chelsea have great fixtures coming up, it’s a no brainer to get Tammy in if you don’t own him already. No player has registered more shots on target (9) than the Englishman over the last four gameweeks. Brighton beware.
