EPL Fantasy Gameweeκ 8 Picks

super-administrator September 16, 2022

This is one of those weeks. The ones that can make, save, or solidify your season. After the postponement of gameweek 7, it is time for our EPL Fantasy Gameweeκ 8 Picks, keeping in mind that three fixtures are postponed this time around too. Three high risk matches, where extra policing would be needed, are postponed, in order for the police to better guard Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. Brighton – Crystal Palace, Chelsea – Liverpool, and Manchester United – Leeds are the games that won’t go through.

The fixtures

Friday 16 September

Aston Villa vs Southampton
Nottingham Forest vs Fulham

Saturday 17 September

Wolves vs Manchester City
Newcastle vs Bournemouth
Tottenham vs Leicester

Sunday 18 September

Brentford vs Arsenal
Everton vs West Ham


Nick Pope (Newcastle)

Price: £5.2m | Opponent: Bournemouth (h)
36 points | 17.8% owned

Nick Pope is top of the league in saves (20) and he is facing a Bournemouth team that ranks 20th in xGoals. This is the most clean-sheet-friendly goalkeeper option.

Dean Henderson (Nottingham Forest)

Price: £4.7m | Opponent: Fulham (h)
31 points | 13.6% owned

Henderson has conceded 9 goals in his last two games with Forest and dropped from the top of the goalkeepers’ fantasy raking to the third place. At £4.7m he’s got value, if you can’t afford Pope.


Kieran Trippier (Newcastle)

Price: £5.3m | Opponent: Bournemouth (h)
30 points | 42.6% owned

Trippier is the second highest-scoring defender in the game, but in comparison to Cancelo, he’s on a great price too. He shoots, he passes, and he’s got an excellent clean sheet opportunity against Bournemouth.

Ivan Perisic (Tottenham)

Price: £5.6m | Opponent: Leicester (h)
25 points | 27.9% owned

He hasn’t yet solidified his position in the starting XI (mainly because he’s struggling with fitness issues), but when he’s on the pitch, he’s pure class. If he plays, he will produce.

Benjamin White (Arsenal)

Price: £4.5m | Opponent: Brentford (a)
23 points | 5.4% owned

Everyone’s and their mothers are on Saliba, Gabriel and Zinchenko. But Ben White is also an Arsenal high-scoring defender, who doesn’t get the love he deserves.


Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

Price: £12.2m | Opponent: Wolves (a)
35 points | 31.3% owned

This one goes out to the ones that own Salah, and want to replace him with an active player. The only one to fill that hole (and is somewhat cheaper too) is KDB.

James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)

Price: £6.5m | Aston Villa (a)
23 points | 9.6% owned

Most of the top midfielders in the game come from the six teams that won’t play this weekend. If you are looking for a solid alternative, Ward-Prowse is one of the most stable players this season.

Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal)

Price: £6.5m | Brentford (a)
36 points | 47.8% owned

He produces big and he has to be in your squad. Even if he has the odd off week.


Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham)

Price: £6.9m | Opponent: Nottingham Forest (a)
39 points |29.7% owned

We are no longer proposing Haaland and Jesus. If you don’t have them in your team, you have a certain plan. If you are looking for something different, you can go for Mitrovic, who is a goalscoring machine, at an affordable price.
