Daily Fantasy Premier League GW10: Hot picks

Salah’s time to shine

While MOHAMAD SALAH (14.5M) has not been at his best at the start of the season, we think he is about to find last years form. The whole world knows last seasons performance gave him the Golden Boot
with 32 goals. Maybe Salah won’t match last the season’s numbers in this campaign, but we saw hints last week that the Egyptian is about to find a better form where he scored a great goal.
Cardiff is coming to Anfield on Saturday and it seems like a perfect opponent for Salah to improve his topscorer vision. Cardiff has let in 19 goals in 9 matches, it is the second worst record of all teams in the Premier League this season.
For those looking to dodge this rounds most used captain, it could be smart to look at Salah’s
teammates. As usual, ROBERTO FIRMINO (13.9M) and SADIO MANE (14.4M) are the best choices.
Mane has had some difficulty with his thumb, but reports say he is ready to play. Despite that small injury, our guess right now is that Firmino is the one of the two that is in the best shape. We could be wrong, sometimes we are!

The biggest game of this round

The most interesting game this week is Tottenham vs Manchester City. It has been registered for
Monday evening, so in other terms, we will have to wait until Monday before we know who will be at first place in the table. As of now, it is Manchester City, but its very close in the top. Tottenham is in 5th place but they are only 2 points behind. Manchester City is in the best form of the two, so maybe
your best choice is someone like RIYAD MAHREZ (11.6M). He is showing impressions of what he
showed us during his time at Leicester. He scored a wonderful goal against Burnley when the ball
curled into the top bin. It was really a symbolic Mahrez movement, instead of going out wide, he went
inside and delivered the shot. Pep has a lot of choices in the attacking midfield, but it looks like Mahrez is safe in the starting line-up.

The cheap selection

It’s a longshot, but KENEDY (5.5M) seems too cheap for GW10. Newcastle is going away to Southampton, but they were unlucky not to win their game against Brighton, who profited on an unexpected deflection by Kayal. For most of the game, Newcastle was the strongest team. Kenedy achieved to shoot 8 times, but could not repeat his triumph when he scored against Manchester United. The winger absolutely has a nice form and could be a somewhat risky, but still an interesting candidate for the GW10.

We like Chelsea’s opportunities a lot for GW10. If you are not choosing offensive players from the London side, you probably should pick defenders. Burnley are in very bad form and the 0-5 loss to
Manchester City only emphasizes the bad situation in the club. They were blessed to
get one point against Huddersfield, and when they beat Cardiff 2-1 it was the Welshmen
who looked like probable winners for the most of the match. Burnley has scored 10 times so far this
season, which ain’t too bad, but 4 of those happened in a not too common match against Bournemouth.
Usually, they strive to score against teams like Chelsea. ANTONIO RUDIGER (9.8M) is the first one we would select. The German scored one of his few goals against Manchester United with a great header, but he has been playing more offensively this season, so it is not unlikely he can get some chances besides set pieces. DAVID LUIZ (9.4M) is the cheapest one. Additionally, it is tough to leave out one of the most loved fantasy players of all time, MARCOS ALONSO (10.8M).

Good luck!
