Goalkeeper

If you have either Alisson or Ederson, then you won't need to worry about your goalkeeper selection too much!

SOLID START - Ederson picked up 7 points in the opening round

However, with Alisson shipping a few goals early doors and Ederson keeping 2 clean sheets in a row, we think you should opt with the City stopper.

At £5.5, Ederson is the joint-most expensive keeper available but should be safe from Pep roulette.

Defenders

Arsenal defenders look good value this week, with William Saliba, Ben White, and Gabriel all playing well in the first two game weeks.

Despite his hair-pulling antics, Spurs defender Christian Romero is another solid choice, with the Argentine going up against a Wolves side that isn't exactly free-scoring.

With Manchester United failing to strike fear into any defender, gunning for Andy Robertson or Trent Alexander-Arnold could also be a smart move, with both men set to be heavily involved at Old Trafford on Monday.

Midfielders

He may not have had his strongest game against Crystal Palace, but we all know that Mo Salah loves playing against Manchester United.

Other top picks are Man City's Kevin De Bruyne, who has started the season in his usual phenomenal style.
