Chelsea vs Sheffield United

Timo Werner (9.3m) owners were finally rewarded with a 16 point haul against Southampton in GW5. Pulisic and Ziyech are back to full fitness, meaning that Werner should benefit from this boost in creativity, as they registered 7 shots on target against FC Krasandor in the Champions League last week. Sheffield United have conceded 84 shots so far this season, fourth highest in the league and have also conceded 13 big chances, highlighting the potential for Werner to haul big points again.

Southampton vs Newcastle United

Danny Ings (8.5m) has had a strong start to the season, averaging 6.8 points per game. 10 of the 11 attempts Ings has had this season have been inside the box. Ings has a prolific goal conversion rate of 36.4%. Che Adams (5.8m) also looks exceptional value, especially considering he had 11 out of 11 of his total shots this season inside the box, highlighting how effective Hasenhuttl’s system is, due to its ability to bring the best out of the Southampton front two. Additionally, Southampton have had a shot accuracy of 47.8%, the third highest in the league. They have also had a very respectable 46 shots inside the box this season, 7th highest in the league, highlighting the high levels of consistency from the Southampton strikers this season.

Newcastle have had the most amount of shots conceded, shots on target conceded and second most shots inside the box conceded, highlighting that this is the perfect fixture for the Southampton front two to add to their impressive statistics this season, which could easily equate to goals.

West Ham vs Fulham

Fulham are the assured whipping boys on Fantasy Football this season, conceding the most big chances in the league this season (17), and the second most shots on target conceded (38). West Ham have prevailed this season after a very difficult start, picking up 3 points against Wolves and Leicester, and a point against both Spurs and Manchester City. After his deadly form in project restart, Antonio (6.3m) has continued to impress up front for West Ham, finding the net three times this season. The striker has had 18 attempts for West Ham this season (4th highest for strikers), and the fourth highest shots on target for strikers this season (8). Antonio could prove to be a fantastic differential at just 3.9% ownership.

Game-changer of the week: Ademola Lookman

Ademola Lookman (5m) has impressed at Fulham this season, and scored a stunning goal against Sheffield United in GW4. The agile winger has recorded 4.1 successful take ons per 90 this season and has averaged 3 goal attempts per game this season, impressive for a player priced at 5 million. Lookman has also had 29.94 final third touches per 90. In relative terms, Raheem Sterling has 29.05 final third touches per 90 whilst Heung-Min Son has 28.22. Lookman has huge potential to be the best value fifth midfielder, and is a huge differential with just 0.5% ownership.
