These are the four players that you should consider selecting for Game Week 1.
Hugo Lloris (£4m) v Aston Villa
Settling on a goalkeeper early can ensure that you have one less thing to worry about once the season is under way.
Of the stoppers from the top clubs, Hugo Lloris – a cheaper option than Ederson and Alisson – is the one most likely to get you off to a good start.
We judge Tottenham’s opening-day opponents Aston Villa as the second-least likely team to score this weekend, pricing up a Spurs clean sheet at .
OK, Mauricio Pochettino’s side go to Manchester City the following week, but they then host Newcastle, whose odds of netting will be as slim as Villa’s.
Kiko Femenia (£1.5M) v Brighton
To balance out your expensive goalkeeper, it is worth taking a punt on cheap defender with good early fixtures.
We’ve priced Brighton at to score at Watford on Saturday, the longest price of any team not playing top-six opposition.
Hornets right-back Kiko Femenia, therefore, looks a snip at £1.5m. Several defenders in the Spaniard’s price bracket are unlikely starters, with others, like West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell and Southampton’s Yan Valery, facing tougher starts.
Callum Wilson (£3.5m) v Sheffield United
Of the strikers valued at £3.5m, Wilson is your best bet this week.
His odds of to net against Sheffield United are shorter than Raul Jimenez ( ) v Leicester and Marcus Rashford ( ) v Chelsea.
Romelu Lukaku and Gabriel Jesus, also available at £3.5m, are unlikely to start for their teams this weekend.
THE BIG DEBATE: Sergio Aguero (£7.5m v West Ham) or Mohamed Salah (£7.5m v Norwich)
Of the two most expensive players on the game, you’re probably only going to be able to afford one.
Based on our odds, Salah is the man to plump for.
The Egyptian is available at to score against Norwich on Friday night, compared to Aguero’s price of to net at West Ham on Saturday.
Salah’s price for a hat-trick ( ) is also shorter than Aguero’s.
