FPL Gameweek 10 Roundup: Transfers, Cheap Picks And Captaincy Choices: Another early deadline awaits us as gameweek 10 gets underway this coming Friday
After an unprecedented start to the ongoing season of the Premier League, one which saw all the traditional scripts being ripped into shreds, the season is eventually settling into a more customary pattern now. The barrage of goals which were struck every gameweek have slowly started vanishing up in thin smoke to give FPL players a more coherent idea of how to go about their transfer business.
As the must have buys, cheap picks and in form players have started taking shape, FPL managers have been clamouring to rope in players which can see them make massive strides in the league. Ahead of gameweek 10 which commences this Friday with a showdown between Crystal Palace and Newcastle United, we offer insights at the ideal transfers and captaincy choices.
Vincent Guaita, 5 million
Up against a Newcastle United which has been devoid of goals in two straight matches, a conventionally strong at home defensive Crystal Palace side look good for a cleansheet come today.
Joao Cancelo, 5.5 million
Our selection of City’s Cancelo is not only limited to their impending fixture against Burnley. The side has an extremely favourable slate of ties across the course of the next week and with Cancelo finally showcasing his mettle down the flank, he offers value in both sides of the park.
Aaron Creswell, 5.2 million
Although West Ham’s fixture is a tricky one, the form the club is in could see them easily make it three successive cleansheets come today. And with Creswell having already registered three cleansheets with him involved in the freekicks as well, he could end up being a really exceptional pick for the gameweek.
James Justin, 4.8 million
They ended up shipping three to Liverpool the last time around but Leicester City have a massively favourable tie today. With Fulham offering little in the way of attacking acumen, Justin can make his presence felt all over the pitch.
Kevin de Bruyne, 11.5 million
Although City failed to score against Tottenham the last time around, Kevin de Bruyne was a silver lining for the club as he dictated play for the club in attack.
Diogo Jota, 6.8 million
Jota’s ascendancy in price has been down to the manner he’s settled in at Liverpool. Taking to the club like a fish takes to water, he’s filled his shoes with four goals after scoring in the side’s 3-0 triumph.
Mohamed Salah, 12.1 million
Having recovered from COVID, Liverpool’s Salah looks good for atleast the one goal when he squares off against a dwindling Brighton defensive unit.
Harvey Barnes, 6.9 million
Whilst Barnes’ skill set has been well documented, his lack of consistency has made him a tricky FPL pick. However, he finally had a set of fixtures where he can burst onto the stage and add to the 2 goals and an assist he has this term.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin, 7.9 million
The catalyst of Ancelotti’s era at Everton, Dominic just cant stop finding the net at the moment. His two strikes against Fulham finally broke his side three match losing spree and with Leeds United sitting high in the most number of shots conceded, Dominic can easily add to that tally.
Jamie Vardy, 10.2 million
With Fulham shipping goals left, right and centre to see the club already leak 18 times in 9 matches, Vardy scoring today won’t be the most surprising of narratives.
Patrick Bamford, 6.1 million
Bamford’s 7 goals for Leeds United in just the first couple of months in the league have shown that he’s clearly cut out to impress at the biggest stage of all. He finds himself taking on an Everton defence which has offered little in the way of defensive fight and character, a side Bamford can easily plunder.
FPL Captaincy Picks
Mohamed Salah: Brighton are known to crumble under vicious attacking pressure and a relatively fresh Salah can easily go on a rampage.
Jamie Vardy: Anyone playing against Fulham makes for an instant captaincy choice.
Kevin de Bruyne: Getting a much needed rest against Olympiacos, Kevin de Bruyne will be hungry to come out and make amends for his missed penalty against Liverpool.
