FPL Tips – Gameweek 10
After a grueling round of fixtures in the domestic league cup, English football is back again this weekend. While Spurs’ trip to Old Trafford will be the biggest game of the weekend, A mini-derby between Palace and West Ham, Manchester City’s trip to the Hawthorns, Chelsea’s trip to the Vitality and Everton’s trip to Leicester City are all expected to be interesting.
But for fans of the Fantasy Premier League, this week could prove to be tricky. Not many games are foregone conclusions and there might be a number of players, a few not so well known, who could come up with the goods this weekend.
Here are three players you should sign for Matchday 10 of the FPL:
Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal)
If you do not already have him, this might be a good time to include the French striker in your team. Facing an out of favour Swansea side, Lacazette could have a productive evening and considering the loss of form of other strikers around, he is a more than decent bet for this weekend.
David de Gea (Manchester United)
The Spaniard is easily one of the best players in his position in Europe. He often puts on tremendous displays in big games and with United facing Spurs this weekend, De Gea is a must in your FPL team, as it is highly possible that Jose Mourinho might simply park the bus, thus increasing the chances of a Man Utd clean sheet.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)
The English international picked up some unbelievable form the last time Leicester sacked a manager. And facing a side like Everton, struggling to even play as a unit, Jamie Vardy could just be blowing them up into pieces, especially on his home turf.
Here are three players who should be dropped from your FPL team for the weekend:
Leroy Sane (Manchester City)
Having won seven bonus points so far this season, Sane is one of the most selected players at the moment in the competition but playing at the Hawthorns, he is not expected to be given the space or time to weave his magic. He is expected to have a dull day and could be excluded.
Roberto Firmino (Liverpool)
The Brazilian international has been among the goals early this season but is going through a rough patch. And things won’t change anytime soon as Liverpool face Huddersfield Town this weekend, a side that has done well this season. Firmino might not find enough space to be effective in the final third and may even be dropped by Klopp after two disastrous outings.
Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur)
A controversial entry in this list is Dele Alli, who is only gathering some form. The English international is one of the most exciting playmakers in England at the moment and Mourinho will be well aware of it and will have his plans to curtail him and Eriksen. The Dane has been in form and may yet hurt United but it is very likely that Alli will be left frustrated, leaving Old Trafford with very little to be happy about.
