FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 10

Who are the teams to look out for and avoid?:

Man City (Watch): As someone who cannot own Haaland due to my Non-EU challenge, I hate every second of him being on a football pitch because he is making out England’s top league to be a joke. 14 goals after less than ten games is insane. I was having a good week, and then Haaland scored another hattrick and picked up a few more assists. At home against Southampton should be even more misery as my team struggles to compete.

Arsenal vs. Liverpool (???): The uncertainty of the week goes to Liverpool’s visit of Arsenal. In the home corner, Arsenal have had a blistering start to the season. In the away corner you have Liverpool, who love to make Arsenal look like a mid-table team. The Reds have won the last two visits to the Emirates without conceding, and I argue that results against the Gunners have defined Klopp’s reign, and if they fail to win, I think there is big debate that Liverpool’s season will be as good as over.

Chelsea (Watch): The Blues have started to win games because of having a dedicated number nine, with Aubameyang back in the league, he has scored on both his full league and Champions League debut for the Blues. Wolves have just let go of Bruno Lage, and they are there for the taking.

Top FPL player targets ahead of Gameweek 10:

GK: Ederson (MCI, GK, £5.5mil, 15.6% ownership)

DEF: Reece James (CHE, DEF, £6.1mil, 39.1% ownership)

MID: Wilfried Zaha (CRY, MID, £7.3mil, 18.7% ownership)

FWD: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (CHE, FWD, £9.0mil, 2.3% ownership)

Gameweek 9 - FPL Differential Picks:

BOU/LEI: Harvey Barnes (LEI, MID, £6.9mil, 1.5% ownership)

CHE/WOL: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (CHE, FWD, £9.0mil, 2.3% ownership)

MCI/SOU: Jack Grealish (MCI, MID, £6.8mil, 1.2% ownership)

NEW/BRE: Miguel Almirón (NEW, MID, £5.1mil, 4.5% ownership)

BHA/TOT: Richarlison (TOT, FWD, £8.5mil, 1.0% ownership)

CRY/LEE: Odsonne Edouard (CRY, FWD, £5.3mil, 2.1% ownership)

WHU/FUL: Gianluca Scamacca (WHU, FWD, £6.7mil, 1.0% ownership)

ARS/LIV: Diogo Jota (LIV, MID, £8.9mil, 0.4% ownership)

EVE/MUN: Antony (MUN, MID, £7.5mil, 6.2% ownership)

NFO/AVL: Jacob Ramsey (AVL, MID, £5.2mil, 1.3% ownership)

Differential Captain:

So, I had a nightmare last week in terms of advice giving, as I predicted that Luis Sinisterra (LEE) would be a great differential captain, and if you followed my advice, you would have picked up a hefty -4pts for your gamble after the Colombian was sent off against Aston Villa. This time I offer something more predictable in the form of Chelsea’s new forward Aubameyang, who scored the opening goal for Chelsea in their win against Crystal Palace, and against a Wolves team loitering at the bottom of the table there doesn’t need to be any explanation about the choice this week.

FPL Captaincy Picks:

Essential: Erling Haaland (MCI)

Alternative: Diogo Jota (LIV)

Differential (low ownership %): Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (CHE)

Rest of the World XI Challenge Team:

What is Sam’s team all about?: For the 22/23 season, Sam’s latest challenge sees his actual squad only being comprised of players from outside of Europe, with players only from Asia, North and South America, Australasia, and Africa considered.

Target Points: 2330pts

Total Points: 378pts

22/23 Captaincy: 4/8

Ins: Thiago Silva (CHE), Lisandro Martinez (MUN), Wilfried Zaha (CRY), Richarlison (TOT), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (CHE)

Outs: Davinson Sanchez (TOT), Emerson Royal (TOT), Son-Hueng Min (TOT), Roberto Firmino (LIV), Taiwo Awoniyi (NFO)

Transfer Thoughts: 5 in, 5 out. A 16pt deduction. Why? The team needed an overhaul. Son was losing value and was weighing down the team. In fact, all my Spurs assets were, Sanchez wasn’t playing anymore, Emerson Royal got my teams third red card of the season, and Son for his massive price wasn’t returning. I thought that there was more value in Zaha for over £5mil less, which opened-up for me to juice up my forward line and include Aubameyang and Richarlison. I don’t think Roberto Firmino will start after Jürgen Klopp has made sweeping changes to the team but says that they are changing system against Arsenal than the one seen against Rangers mid-week. Diogo Jota will start, he demolished Arsenal last year, and started the season brightly since returning from injury. Koulibaly is safe to play after Fofana’s injury, so I want to pair him with the red-card resistant Thiago Silva, with both Chelsea defenders in a comfortable home game against Wolves. Martinez (MUN) is in as price enabler but will play against Everton. This is a proper Hail-Mary because I was looking at a team that may have only been starting seven players.

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 10

Is it time to play your Wildcard (if you haven’t already)?:

It may be time to press the trigger this week as you have to us one of your Wildcard’s before FPL pauses after Gameweek 16 due to the World Cup in Qatar.

How many goals will Haaland get this season?:

Don’t be fooled by the clickbait on social media. Haaland just won’t be scoring hat-tricks each and every game. He might against Southampton as there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding their managerial status and overall quality of the squad. Some figures I’ve seen online suggest 60+ goals if the Norwegian continues at his current rate, but come on, it’s not going to happen. 40 goals seems a lot more realistic, and even then the greatest players in the league have only breached 30+ goals on a handful of times, so it’s best to keep our feet planted firmly on the ground (for now).

Remember the upcoming Gameweek 12:

Arsenal and Man City don’t play in the upcoming midweek round of games, so neither team play. Just ensure you have enough to cover a Starting XI squad as a City triple up will be undeniable (if not already).

What are the potential stumbling blocks to a good Gameweek?:

- Arsenal and Liverpool have a lot of representation in FPL squads, though the masses are taking out Liverpool players as if they are the plague. Trent, Salah, Diaz, Martinelli, Jesus, Ramsdale, Saliba, and Saka, are all owned by large percentages, so picking the right options to play in this one will be important. Getting rid of Liverpool players could be an immediate regret if Salah/TAA net in the game.

- Haaland somehow blanking and disappointing the millions (and millions!)


Who are the teams to look out for and avoid?:

Liverpool (Watch): I’ve recently been told on Reddit by a few users that they disagree with virtually everything I say, and it’s probably because I fancy teams like Liverpool this Gameweek. Klopp’s team have a very one-sided history against Arsenal,

Man United (Cautious): Off of a Europa League tie, playing away against a tricky defensive opposition. United will need an early goal to open this game up, or this game will be incredibly low scoring.

Newcastle (Watch): We’ve got ASM back (he’ll likely start on the bench), Wilson’s on form, Miggy is a player transformed, and we blew Fulham away last weekend. Add on top we’re at home, and this could be a memorable home win on the week of the anniversary of the club’s takeover. What a year it’s been.

Brighton/Spurs (No Clue): I have no gut instinct on this game. Brighton are just as good post Potter, and Spurs are difficult to predict against good footballing teams. I’ll go middle of the round with a draw.

Forest (I’m being kind on them): I’ve gone for a Forest win over Aston Villa, contrary to their form. Steve Cooper has been handed a new deal and it is a winnable game against Villa, surely it has to click into place at some point – unless we’re seeing another Fulham in the league, spending hundreds of millions only to go down without much fight.

Man City (Watch): It’s only a matter of by how many goals City will win by. Haaland was taken off at half-time in the Champions League on a brace, and they rotated the pack, but this screams of a big win which will carry the Gameweek (just as they did in GW9).

Top FPL player targets ahead of Gameweek 10:

James Maddison (LEI) has a good run of fixtures, whilst additional City support in attack to go alongside Erling Haaland looks essential, so KDB or Foden.

Newcastle are defensively solid and Brentford is the perfect time to rely on Trippier and Pope.

Crystal Palace also have a great run of fixtures and Wilfried Zaha would be a great mid-range option to consider alongside Maddison.

Slightly left-field, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.0m) is off and running and has a dependable run of fixtures, so could be one to call upon against a Wolves team without a Manager.

FPL Captaincy Picks:

Essential: Erling Haaland (MCI)

Alternative: Kevin De Bruyne (MCI)

Low Key Choices: Zaha (CRY), Bowen (WHU), Watkins (AVL)

FPL Squad Picks: Gameweek 10

Formation: 3-4-3

Budget: £101.9 million
