Riyad Mahrez (FUL)
Following his hat-trick against Burnley, Mahrez has now started in seven of the last eight gameweeks, averaging 6.4 PPG. During that period (gameweek three to ten), the Algerian ranks top amongst Man. City players with a total of 13 shots inside the box (SiB) and 10 SoT. His total of 18 attempted assists ranks sixth overall and only behind De Bruyne (20) amongst teammates. He is the third most transferred in player this week as per our Transfer Stats feature. Even though Man. City are yet to hit the free-scoring highs of last season, their numbers over the 2019/20 campaign still bear repeating. During last season's campaign the Cityzens scored 102 goals, with Liverpool second for that metric with 85, and the Manchester club also fashioned 141 ‘big chances’, some distance ahead of Liverpool (109). Fulham have conceded eight goals on their travels this season, keeping no clean sheets. Only Palace (nine), Sheff. Utd (10), West Brom (11), Liverpool (11) and Burnley (12) have shipped more goals on the road. While only Southampton (29) have conceded more SoT than their 28. Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 6.8 for Mahrez.

Amongst FPL forwards, only Calvert-Lewin (nine), Vardy (10) and Bamford (11) have landed more than his seven SoT over that period. Kane (10) is also the only player that can better his eight attempted assists and he ranks joint-first with the England captain for ‘big chances’ created (three). No team has scored more goals than Southampton (nine) over the last four gameweeks and only seven teams have managed more SoT than their 18.

City have conceded just three goals over the last four gameweeks, keeping two clean sheets. Only Chelsea and Spurs (both one) have conceded fewer over that period. Again, it is Chelsea (five) who are the only side to have conceded fewer SoT than their seven. Fulham have scored six goals over the last four gameweeks and only Arsenal (26), Southampton (23), Newcastle, Spurs (both 21) and Burnley (14) have taken fewer SiB than their 27.
