The Premier League fixtures are coming thick and fast, as the league begins to take shape.

With those involved in Europe playing twice a week for the foreseeable future, could now be the time to look to those fresh legs to push your fantasy team up the ladder?

Here are our Gameweek 7 tips.

RealSport101 Fantasy Premier League

If you're reading this article, the chances are you have a Fantasy Premier League team.

If so, then why not join the RealSport101 Fantasy Premier League? It won't cost you a penny and there are some pretty cool prizes to be won.

The overall winner of the league will bag themselves a copy of FIFA 22 on the platform of their choosing, not bad!

What are you waiting for? The code to join the league is "4mqenx".

Goalkeepers

As the goal-fest that we saw at the beginning of the season begins to die down, we are now seeing plenty more points coming from the men between the sticks.

Star Signing & Bargain Buy - Illan Meslier (£4.5m)

Illan Meslier FPL

Many questioned whether or not Meslier had the qualities to be a Premier League no. 1, but boy has he proved the doubters wrong.

The Leeds United man has been as solid as they come so far this season, picking up a clean sheet in his sides 3-0 victory at Villa Park on Friday night.

His ability to start attacks may also see him pick up a rogue assist at some point in the season. At £4.5m you really can't go wrong.

Defenders

Similarly to your goalkeepers, the majority of your defenders points are going to come courtesy of clean sheets.

However there is always the potential of an overlapping fullback picking up an assist, or a big centre half netting from a corner.

Here are who we have as our picks for this week.

Star Signing - Ben Chilwell (£5.8m)

Ben Chilwell FPL

After taking a couple of weeks to settle, we're starting to see the best of Ben Chilwell at Chelsea.

The England left back grabbed his first goal for the club in the recent 4-0 win over Crystal Palace and, with Eduoard Mendy looking solid between the sticks, the clean sheets should start to rise for Frank Lampard's men.

Bargain Buy - Jannick Vestergaard (£4.5m)

Jannick Vestergaard FPL

Southampton have enjoyed quite a solid start to their Premier League campaign, and with Aston Villa, Newcastle and Wolves to come in the next three weeks, there are more points to be had!

Jannick Vestergaard has locked down a starting spot for Ralph Hasenhüttl's side and - at 6'6" - the Southampton centre half is a constant set-piece threat.

Midfielders

Now getting to the business end of the pitch, here are the key midfielders that you need to have in your FPL set up!

Star Signing - Heung Min Son (£9.5m)

Son FPL

We'd love to be creative and give a really obscure pick but there's no other choice than Heung Min Son at the minute.

The Spurs man just can't stop scoring! With Brighton and West Brom to come in the next two rounds of fixtures, you'd fancy him to have chances to get a couple more!

Bargain Buy - Phil Foden (£6.5m)

Phil Foden FPL

We're not sure if he qualifies as a bargain, but for that price, you're sure to get your money's worth!

With both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus out for at least the next two weeks, there will be opportunities for all of Man City's attackers to stake a claim for a starting spot.

After a stellar display off the bench on Saturday, we'd be surprised if Foden doesn't make the starting XI at Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

Strikers

It's all about the goals with these guys, and there are plenty who are in and amongst them at the minute!

Star Signing - Dominic Calvert Lewin (£7.7m)

DCL FPL

Everton's star man had a quiet afternoon as Everton suffered their first defeat of the season against Southampton in GW6.

But with a trip to Newcastle to come in GW7, Carlo Ancelotti will be looking for a response from his men and, in a game where you'd expect Everton to dominate the ball, there should be plenty of chances for DCL.

£7.7m is still a very reasonable price for a proven goalscorer.

Bargain Buy - Patrick Bamford (£5.9m)

Bamford FPL

Like with Meslier, many questioned whether Bamford had what it takes to make the step up to the Premier League.

And, after Leeds broke their transfer record to bring in Spain international Rodrigo, it looked as though Bamford's opportunities may be limited.

But the Englishman just can't stop scoring! He scored a stellar hat-trick in the 3-0 win at Villa and, in this sort of form, you just can't back against him!
