Premier League Tips - Pick, Watch & Avoid

The best and the worst players this season in our Premier League Tips.

Premier League Tips

Welcome to the third round of our Pick, Watch & Avoid series. The only place for your premier league tips. Take a look at our FPL expert picks from Liverpool to Sheffield United.

Liverpool

Top Pick

Mo Salah (£12m)

With Liverpool, there are a lot to choose from, but no one is more consistent at amassing huge fantasy points than Mo Salah. Only Kevin De Bruyne scored more points last season and Salah was the top fantasy scorer the 2 seasons before that. No brainer.

One to Watch 

Takumi Minamino (£6.5m)

The starting XI for Liverpool has been the same for a few seasons now and rarely changes. However, with the fixtures being crammed in this season, rotation could be unavoidable. The Japanese playmaker has had a good pre-season, scoring against Arsenal in the Community Shield.

Avoid at all costs

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.5m)

There isn’t really any weak players in the Liverpool squad. The only reason we are picking The Ox is that he is likely to get injured (he has a knee injury going in to the season), so, at £6.5m, it would be better to spend your money elsewhere.

 

Manchester City

Top Pick

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m)

The PFA player of the year, and arguably the best player in the league, has to be the top pick for City. He was the top scoring player in fantasy football last season with 251 points. Scoring 13 goals and providing a whopping 20 assists last term, KDB is a must have. 

One to Watch 

Phil Foden (£6.5m)

With David Silva moving on, Foden should now get his chance to shine. As with any Man City player under Guardiola, you will have to be careful with how much he rotates. However, Foden should get as much time as anyone else now that Silva has gone back to Spain.

Avoid at all costs

Benjamin Mendy (£6m)

Mendy has been a bit of a disappointment in the past couple of years. Not entirely his fault, the left back has struggled with injuries, but even when he has played, he has not reached the heights he is capable of.

Manchester United

Top Pick

Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m)

Since the arrival of the Portuguese playmaker, no team has amassed more points in the Premier League than Manchester United. This is mainly down to his 8 goals and 7 assists in just 14 league games. Solskjaer will be banking on him firing United into the top 4 once again.

One to Watch 

Mason Greenwood (£7.5m)

The young England striker had a huge breakthrough season last term. Amassing 103 fantasy points through his 10 league goals, Greenwood will surely be lining up alongside Marcus Rashford and Antony Martial in an exciting front line at Old Trafford.

Avoid at all costs

Jesse Lingard (£6m)

Whether Lingard will even get a game is doubtful. Even if he does, his record in the past year or two is not great by any means. His only goal last season came in the last minute of the final game due to a goalkeeper’s mistake. Should be well down the pecking order.

 

Newcastle United

Top Pick

Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m)

Looking at his stats of 3 goals and 4 assists last season, you’d be forgiven for thinking there must be better picks. However, 4 assists is not that bad in a team where you’re trying to set up Joelinton. With Callum Wilson’s arrival, expect those stats to rise immensely this season.

One to Watch 

Jamal Lewis (£4.5m)

The 22 year old left back deserved another chance at a Premier League club following relegation with Norwich. Performing admirably in a clearly struggling team, Lewis will surely score more points in a much more organised and experienced team.

Avoid at all costs

Joelinton (£6m)

You don’t need me to tell you not to put Joelinton in. Costing a whopping £40m, the Brazilian forward scored just 2 goals last season. The only bonus for Joelinton is that he can’t get any worse. Surely.

 

Sheffield
United

Top Pick

Enda Stevens (£5.5m)

The Republic of Ireland wingback had a superb season last year. Scoring a huge 142 points, his performances were a big part of the Blades proving all expectations wrong and finishing 9th in the table. With his position guaranteed he’s to go to guy in defence.

One to Watch 

Aaron Ramsdale (£5m) 

Losing Dean Henderson will be a big blow to Chris Wilder. His replacement, Ramsdale from Bournemouth, had a good season in tough circumstances last time out. He achieved lots of save bonuses, after being constantly put under pressure by the Cherries poor defence.

Avoid at all costs

Billy Sharp (£6m)

A tough call, as Sheffield United performed so well last season. Billy Sharp, however, is 34 now, and surely will not be getting as much game time as his 26 appearances last season. He only scored 3 goals last term, which is not enough for a player priced at £6m.
