Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 10: It’s time for James Maddison
Gameweek 10 is fast approaching in the Fantasy Premier League and after another hat-trick for Manchester City striker Erling Haaland, if you don’t have him in your squad at this stage, you have only yourself to blame.
As Qatar’s World Cup break approaches, this crowded fixture period will be as much for FPL managers as it is for Premier League clubs. As this week’s deadline approaches, The Sportsman has three tips to help you get the point total you desire.
Haaland must have the armband at home
Manchester City have another home game this weekend as they host Southampton at the Etihad Stadium. Given Haaland has scored three hat-tricks in his last three Premier League home games, there’s a very good chance he’ll be plenty on the scoresheet again this weekend, so he’s worth the watch. hardly select him as captain.
His abilities are becoming more of a cheat code with each passing game and you can always guarantee he’ll have a handful of scoring chances thanks to the creative genius that is Kevin De Bruyne.
Maybe it’s time to bring Maddison
Leicester City looked sharp in their demolition of Nottingham Forest derby on Monday night and James Maddison was at the heart of it all. The Foxes are desperate to move up the table and their 4-0 win over Forest was the perfect first step. Maddison’s two goals and an assist earned him the player of the match award, but it looks like there’s still more to come from him.
We recently discussed that the midfielder has a run of favorable matches to work his way into England’s World Cup squad. This in turn could benefit FPL bosses with Leicester’s next four clashes against AFC Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Opportunity to test Chelsea strikers
After coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 last time out, thanks to a sumptuous strike from Conor Gallagher, the final game week could provide managers with a good time to test some of the Blues’ attacking stars. They host managerless Wolves this weekend and given the torrid period they are having this season, Chelsea could exploit them as uncertainty of leadership and identity lingers.
Having scored against Palace and having an impressive goalscoring record since his time at Arsenal, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be a wise addition this week.
