Summary of game week 7
Ahead of the international break, Mohamed Salah (£ 7million) secured his ‘essential’ status in our Telegraph Fantasy Football teams in Gameweek 7 with yet another huge points gain for his 51% ownership. Two low budget players Diego Llorente of Leeds (£ 2.6million) and Hee-chan Hwang of Wolves (£ 3.4million) also scored 12 points, with the latter in particular being a very strong prospect. interesting for the future if it can keep its position. with a glut of attackers available to manager Bruno Lage.
Gameweek 8 selection tips
With the more obvious options of Salah, Romelu Lukaku (£ 6.8million) and Michail Antonio (£ 4.8million) already hugely popular, let’s take a look at a few less possessed players who might find you. help increase rankings in the coming weeks:
1. César Azpilicueta (Chelsea – £ 4.9m)
At just 5% held, the Blues captain goes under the radar as Chelsea embark on a big series of defensive games over the next month. With two assists in Gameweek 7, he’s also not shy about pushing forward, the perfect combination for a Telegraph Fantasy Football defender.
2. Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle – £ 3.8million)
Talk about the man of the day. With Callum Wilson (£ 5.0million) back in training, it will only increase the Frenchman’s appeal as he dazzles opposition defenses, including a leaking Spurs in Gameweek 8 , until he submits. At less than 5% owned, it looks like a great bet for the weeks to come.
3. Bryan Mbuemo (Brentford – £ 3.6million)
While Ivan Toney (£ 4.2million) has received most of the praise for the Bees’ attack, it is the French striker who is playing more forward and looking just as dangerous. At a good price and under 1% ownership, he can take advantage of a great series of matches coming up in October and November to provide plenty of Telegraph Fantasy Football points to our teams.
While some popular players like Raphinha, Lukaku and Antonio Rudiger could potentially miss Gameweek 8, they have some good games going on and are worth keeping for the medium term at least. After all, using too many transfers at this point in the season will make things very difficult later. To see how you stack up against the teams around you, take a look at the average number of transfers used in the following positions:
- Top 100 – 25.51 transfers used
- First 1,000 – 17.62
