Rui Patricio

Team: Wolves

Price: £4.5m

Next match: Burnley (H)

There have been few more impressive performers in goal this season than Wolves’ Rui Patricio, who has enjoyed an excellent start to life in the Premier League. The Portugal international kept his first clean sheet last time out away to West Ham and has continued to impress with some word-class saves in each of his first four appearances. The 30-year-old arrived at Molineux on a free transfer - though this could go to tribunal with Sporting Lisbon demanding €51m - and thus far looks to be one of the shrewdest pieces of business completed in the summer. Patricio run into Burnley this weekend, who have just one point to their name so far and have failed to score in two of their four home games, making Patricio look a good bet for a clean sheet.

Marcos Alonso

Team: Chelsea

Price: £6.8m

Next match: Cardiff City (H)

Yes, he’s expensive. But so far, Marcos Alonso has turned out to be worth the big bucks and is currently the game’s highest-scoring defender with 44 points to his name. The Spaniard is fresh off of making his international debut against England and will be full of confidence after a terrific start to the season. Alonso has a goal and two assists to his name, as well as two clean sheets after four appearances. He and Chelsea are up against Cardiff City this weekend, who are the lowest scorers in the Premier League so far with just two goals, making another clean sheet appear likely. Chelsea are again expect to dominate this contest, with Alonso set to provide a goal threat from the left flank and from set-pieces this weekend.

Mohamed Salah

Team: Liverpool

Price: £13m

Next match: Tottenham (A)

Yes, he is also expensive - the most expensive player in the game, in fact. But there’s a reason for it, having won the Golden Boot in the Premier League last season and has already got two goals to his name this term. Sadio Mane has been hogging the spotlight early on, after netting four goals in his first four appearances and Mo Salah, who became the darling of the Kop last year, will be looking to take back the spotlight. Liverpool travel to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, a team who Salah enjoyed playing against last term with three goals in his two league appearances against them. He will be itching to get back on the scoresheet this weekend, so make space for him in your team this weekend, however you can.
