Everton have enjoyed a sensational start to the season, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Rodriguez massively contributing so far this season. Their ownership has sky rocketed to 52.4% and 44%. Demand for James has been soaring in recent weeks as the Columbian has a big chances created per 90 of 1.03 this season, with only 3 players bettering this statistic. Rodriguez also has the second highest xA this season of 1.4, with only Salah having a xA of 1.45. With a team left defensively exposed by Manchester United, Everton could be next in line for giving Steve Bruce’s side a footballing lesson. With the suspended Richarlison, James will likely be next in line for spot kicks, potentially making him outstanding value at £8m.
Spurs have been incredibly prolific on the counter attack this season, especially in the first half against West Ham when Kane was able to unlock the defence and played a Gerrard like pass into Son for the first goal. Kane looks to be back to his clinical self of 2015-2018, scoring over 25 goals in each of those seasons.
Given Brighton’s defensive fragility this season, conceding 4 goals against Everton, 3 against Manchester United and 3 against Chelsea, Kane looks to be a standout captaincy option this week. He has had the most shots on target this season (13) and an xGI of 5.41, a league highest by a long way.
Sheffield United have had a dreadful start to the season; their defence looks much leakier and Dean Henderson’s absence is extremely notable, conceding 25 shots on target this season, the fourth highest in the league. There is a definite claim for them emerging as the new whipping boys this season, meaning that there will be a better chance of a Raheem Sterling or KDB punishing a vulnerable defence. The English international rewarded FPL managers with a goal against Arsenal and is averaging 6.8 points per game this season.
