Kieran Trippier (Newcastle)

Trippier ranks seventh for xAssists in the Premier League and a clear first for defenders.

Though he is only credited with one assist so far this season, another seems imminent if he keeps up this level of creativity.

Everton haven’t kept a clean sheet in five away games.

Adam Webster (Brighton)

Brighton have the fourth-best xG against record in the Premier League so far this season, with only five teams conceding more actual goals.

Adam Webster is the best pick of their defenders, considering that only five centre-backs have had more shots.

Only Wolves have conceded more goals than Tuesday’s opponents Nottingham Forest, who have scored one goal in their last three games.


Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Salah had the most shots on target in the Premier League last season.

Even though he hasn’t the same heights this term, there are signs that he has rediscovered his best form.

He has scored four goals in his last two matches, including a record-breaking hat-trick at Rangers last week and a superb run and finish against Man City on Sunday.

Harvey Barnes (Leicester)

With James Maddison suspended, Barnes can carry the attacking burden for Leicester on Thursday.

The forward has taken 2.6 shots per game so far this season, the 14th most in the league, and ranks top for xG in Brendan Rodgers’ squad.

Leeds have conceded 10 goals in their four away games this season.


Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham)

Mitrovic has scored in four of his five Premier League home games this season.

The forward ranks fifth for xG and second for shots per game and will fancy his chances of another goal against Aston Villa.

Steven Gerrard’s side are in terrible form, with their manager likely to lose his job if they lose this match.

Darwin Nunez (Liverpool)

Nunez has made a chaotic start to his Premier League career, but there’s no doubt that his underlying numbers suggest that big thigs are coming.

The striker has registered 1.2 xG per 90 so far this season and also sits fourth for shots per game.

His tally of two goals does not reflect those stats, so we can expect him to catch up soon.
