The 10th week of the 2018-19 Premier League season sees Liverpool face Cardiff, Arsenal travel to Crystal Palace and Tottenham host Manchester City. Let’s take a look at some of the players who you should consider adding to your EPL Fantasy team before the weekend.
GK – Alisson (Liverpool)
With six clean sheets from nine matches, Alisson’s points total of 42 has only been bettered this season by Manchester City’s Ederson. The Liverpool goalkeeper, valued at 10.00m, is likely to add to his tally against Cardiff on Saturday.
DF – Joe Gomez (Liverpool)
Joe Gomez is the seventh-highest points scorer in EPL Fantasy so far this season, earning 30 points from nine matches. At 6.00m, the Liverpool defender is an absolute steal.
DF – Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City)
Like Gomez, Aymeric Laporte comes at a relatively low price (6.50m) considering that he has earned 34 points this season. Only three players have scored more points than the Manchester City defender in 2018-19.
DF – Craig Cathcart (Watford)
Watford face low-scoring Huddersfield, Newcastle and Southampton before the next international break, so now might be a good time to consider adding Craig Cathcart to your team. He is affordable at 4.50m.
DF – Shane Duffy (Brighton)
If you’re looking for a defensive bargain, Shane Duffy is your man. The Brighton centre-back has earned 12 points this season, including nine in his last two games, and he costs an incredibly cheap 1.50m. Brighton face Wolves, Everton and Cardiff next.
MD – Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
Rejoice EPL Fantasy managers — Kevin De Bruyne is back! The Belgian impressed during Tuesday’s Champions League win over Shakhtar and, having been replaced in the second half, he is likely to start Monday’s match against Tottenham. City’s midfield maestro costs 12.50m but he’s worth every million.
MD – Ross Barkley (Chelsea)
If you’re looking for a cheaper midfield option, how about Ross Barkley? We mentioned him in our last weekend picks and he repaid our faith with a goal. The Chelsea midfielder is a bargain at 5.00m.
MD – Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)
It’s taken a few games but Mesut Ozil is becoming more and more important for Arsenal under Unai Emery. He has 18 points from his last four games and, valued at 8.00m, is definitely worth considering ahead of fixtures against Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
ST – Andre Schurrle (Fulham)
Aleksandar Mitrovic has grabbed the headlines for Fulham but Andre Schurrle has also been racking up the goals, scoring four times in nine matches. The 7.50m striker has 14 points so far this season, which is only one point less than Romelu Lukaku.
ST – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Congratulations to those who stuck with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during his brief goal drought at the start of the season — you’re now reaping the rewards! He has 26 points this season, including 18 from his last two games, and his cost of 9.00m represents great value.
ST – Jamie Vardy (Leicester)
Leicester don’t play any of the ‘Big Six’ teams in their next six games, so this might be a good time to pin your hopes on Jamie Vardy. The Foxes’ main man costs 11.50m and he has 12 points from seven games so far this season.
