Goalkeepers

Clean sheets have been hard to come by this season, so let's take a look at which 'keepers are hoping to turn their form around!

Star Signing - David De Gea (£5.4m)

Man United have not had the best start to the season but look to be turning a corner, as David De Gea has rediscovered his old form and looks as solid as ever in net.

With West Brom, Southampton and West Ham up next for Ole's men, Man United could pick up a fair few clean sheet points.

Bargain Buy - Aaron Ramsdale (£4.8m)

With Sheffield Utd yet to keep a clean sheet in the league this season, Ramsdale will not seem like the obvious choice, however, favourable upcoming fixtures could make Ramsdale a surprise differential.

Sheffield face West Ham and West Brom next in the League, and will look to turn their form around after suffering defeat to Chelsea.

Defenders

In defence, we focus not only on who is likely to pick up clean sheets, but also on potential attacking returns as well.

Star Signing - Lucas Digne (£6.1m)

Lucas Digne provides a serious attacking threat, being set piece taker for most of Everton's left-sided freekicks.

The Toffees face Fulham, Leeds and Burnley in their next three fixtures, and will be looking to take all 9 points back to Merseyside with them.

Bargain Buy - Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m)

West Ham look to secure consecutive clean sheets, as they come up against an out of form Sheffield Utd in their next fixture.

Vladimir Coufal offers real potential going forward too, as he has already picked up 2 assists in just 5 appearances for the Hammers.

Midfielders

The heart of the team. We take a look at the best midfield options for your FPL team this week!

Star Signing - Bruno Fernandes (£10.6m)

Bruno Fernandes is one hell of an FPL cheat code. If you don't have this guy in your team, get him in now!

United face West Brom, Southampton and West Ham in their next three outings, and Bruno will surely be involved in nearly everything the Reds produce going forward.

Bargain Buy - Andros Townsend (£5.9m)

Having made an excellent start to the 2020/21 season, the Palace winger has blanked in his last 5 appearances, however, that could be about to change!

The Eagles come up against Burnley, Newcastle and West Brom next, and with Eze's added creativity in the middle of the park, Townsend should provide some attacking returns.

Forwards

The danger men. Look no further than these two to provide your team with the goals.

Star Signing - Anthony Martial (£8.7m)

Whilst Anthony Martial hasn't yet scored in the league this season, he is sure to get off the mark in one of his next three favourable fixtures.

The French striker is a key player for United, and will be hoping to turn his early season goal-drought around.

Bargain Buy - Ollie Watkins (£6.1m)

Ollie Watkins has taken to Premier League life like a duck to water, having scored 6 goals in only 8 appearances.

Aston Villa host Brighton in their next fixture, and Watkins will be looking to capitalise on the Seagull's poor early season defensive record.
