Fantasy football tips: Three Gameweek 8 picks

Three players who you have to pick for you Fantasy team this weekend.

Kieran Trippier

Of defenders yet to register an assist in the Premier League this season, only Trent Alexander-Arnold ranks higher for xAssists than Trippier.

His first of the season is surely imminent, considering that he also ranks second to the Liverpool man for key passes of all defenders in the division.

The visit of Bournemouth to St James’ Park offers him the perfect opportunity.

The Cherries have conceded 16 goals in three away games this term – admittedly including trips to Liverpool and Man City – and also sit bottom for xG against.

Son Heung-min

Of all players without a Premier League goal this season, Son ranks second for xG.

That means that a goal is bound to come soon for the player that shared last season’s Golden Boot with Mo Salah.

The South Korean scored twice in his last game against Leicester and has every chance of going again here.

Only Bournemouth have conceded more goals than Leicester (16).

Erling Haaland

It looks unlikely that Haaland won’t be top for goals or xG at any stage this season.

The Norwegian has 10 Premier League goals from six appearance and has racked up 8.2 in xG.

A visit to Wolves, who conceded four to Kevin De Bruyne in a 5-1 defeat in this fixture last season, gives him every chance of continuing his unbelievable form.

Bruno Lage’s side have conceded nine goals in the last three editions of this fixture overall.
