So here are the best options for your FPL squad as we approach GW 21.

Goalkeepers

Here are the 'keepers who are most likely to pick up clean sheets in GW 21.

Star Signing - Ederson (£6.0m)

Manchester City have made it 4 clean sheets in a row in the Premier League, and 10 clean sheets in their last 12 league matches!

Pep Guardiola's men host bottom of the table Sheffield United next, who have scored just 12 goals all season.

Bargain Buy - Alphonse Areola (£.m)

A 10 point haul against Brighton makes Fulham's French 'keeper a prime choice for Saturday's fixture against West Brom.

West Brom have scored only 1 goal in their 2 previous league outings, as they continue to fight for Premier League survival this season.

Defenders

Attacking full-backs! These two left backs will play attacking roles in GW 21.

Star Signing - Ben Chilwell (£6.1m)

Chilwell was handed an advanced role as a wing-back in the Chelsea's first match under new head coach Thomas Tuchel in midweek, raising his chances of more attacking returns, having combined two goals and four assists with seven clean sheets over his 17 appearances this season.

Burnley, meanwhile, have scored only two goals in their previous eight away fixtures ahead of Sunday’s visit to Stamford Bridge.

Bargain Buy - Lucas Digne (£6.0m)

A new role out wide looks set to raise the appeal of the Everton defender, as Digne has played as a left winger in each of the last two Gameweeks since returning from injury.

Newcastle United visit Goodison Park in poor away form, as Steve Bruce's side have failed to score in each of their last six on the road in all competitions.

Midfielders

The heartbeat of any team! Here are the top FPL midfield options for GW 21.

Star Signing - Raheem Sterling (£11.5m)

A goal and assist at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday extended the winger’s impressive run of returns.

An ownership of only 10.6 per cent makes him a tempting differential for the captaincy against a Sheff Utd side who have poor in defence this season.

Bargain Buy - James Rodriguez (£7.7m)

His goal against Leicester City in midweek highlighted the Everton playmaker’s influence when playing at home. 

The Colombian now looks well-placed to take advantage of a Newcastle side who have lost six of their last seven road trips.

Forwards

Goals goals goals! These two in-form strikers are great options for your FPL squad.

Star Signing - Roberto Firmino (£9.3m)

With Kane, Aguero and Vardy all unavailable for Gameweek 21, premium forward options are limited.

However, in-form Firmino travels with the Reds to face West Ham in the league next, following his goal against Tottenham on Thursday night.

Bargain Buy - Ollie Watkins (£6.2m)

Watkins has scored in back-to-back matches for the first time since Gameweek 8, netting against Newcastle United and Burnley.

A visit to Southampton gives the Aston Villa striker the chance to continue his improving form, as Southampton's high defensive line has been exposed by quick strikers on multiple occasions already this season.
