Premier League Fantasy Tips GW1

PL Transfer Blog


The Premier League is finally back this weekend and so is fantasy football.

Everyone will be chopping and changing their teams in the build up to Friday night's opener - Liverpool vs Norwich.

Our Championship tips blog last weekend had mixed success with Kamil Grosicki getting himself a goal, however Kieren Westwood getting sent off did us no favours.

Just like our Championship tips, we're also going to be rolling them out for the Premier League each gameweek. Be sure to keep an eye out as you could bag yourself a hidden gem.

If you'd like to see a fourth, exclusive transfer tip for this weekend, check out our Fantasy Football Tips page HERE!

Joel Matip - £6.2m

The first of our three transfer tips for this weekend is none other than Liverpool's Joel Matip.

The centre back is expected to start their opener alongside star man, Virgil Van Dijk and costs a tidy £0.6m cheaper!

Last season, no team in the top flight kept more clean sheets than Liverpool and we're not expecting too much to change this year.

With a solid pre-season under his belt and a goal in Liverpool's community shield defeat to Manchester City. Joel Matip is certainly one to consider, especially given they host newcomers Norwich on Friday.

If you compare the Cameroonian's price to that of his fellow team-mates, you can see our angle and he could still pick up bags of points whilst saving yourself some money in the process.

  • Virgil Van Dijk - £6.8m
  • Andrew Robertson - £6.7m
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold - £6.7m
  • Joel Matip - £6.2m

Joel Matip featured 22 times for Liverpool last season.

James Maddison - £6.9m

Our second player you should be considering for your Fantasy Hub teams is Leicester midfielder, James Maddison.

So far only 10.37% of users have Maddison in their teams so there is a real opportunity for you to grab some serious points and move ahead of everyone in your league.

Last season the England international was the joint 7th highest scoring midfielder in the Premier League, scoring on 7 occasions. Whilst also having the 4th most shots on targets out of all midfielders in the top flight, testing the opposition keeper 28 times.

Having established himself as a solid Premier League midfielder with Leicester, Maddison is certainly someone you need in your team this season.

Maddison finished the 18/19 with 7 goals & 7 assists under his belt.

Callum Wilson - £7.5m

Our final transfer tip ahead of the Premier League opening weekend is our most expensive.

Everyone will be rushing to get the big guns - Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

People often overlook the slightly cheaper options who perform just as well, with Callum Wilson being the perfect example.

Up against newly promoted Sheffield United this weekend, Bournemouth will fancy their chances at home especially if star striker, Wilson starts.

The England international had a exceptional campaign last year, with his end of season tally sitting pretty at 14 goals and 10 assists in just 30 games.

At a cut price £7.5m, Bournemouth's main man would massively help towards freeing up funds that you could spend elsewhere on your team.

Last season was Callum Wilson's highest scoring campaign since 2014/15.
