- Alternative high-ownership option. Over 20%
- Differential option. Under 20%
Erling Haaland (BRE)
Despite missing minutes through injury, Haaland is still top amongst all players in the league for goals (18), shots in the box (SiB) (48), shots on target (SoT) (28), ‘big chances’ (21) and ‘Expected Goals’ (xG) (11.22). Man. City are top for goals scored (39) and ‘big chances’ (46), while only Liverpool (170) have taken more SiB than their 151. Their visitors Brentford have conceded 24 goals this season and have kept just four clean sheets. The London side are ranked 11th for SiB (211) and 14th for ‘Expected Goals conceded’ (xGC) (20.36). Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 8.6 for Haaland.
Mohamed Salah (SOU)
Salah looks back to his best and has scored three goals over the last four gameweeks, only Almirón (four) has been more prolific amongst midfielders over that period. As the Stats Sandbox image below shows, the Egyptian international is top for shots (29), SoT (10), SiB (five) and ‘big chances’ (four). Liverpool are ranked fifth for goals scored (25) this season while no side has taken more shots (225) or SiB (170). Their visitors Southampton have conceded 24 goals with only Leicester (25), Forest (30) and Bournemouth (32) more porous. The South Coast side are ranked 14th for SiB conceded (127) and 11th for xGC (19.26). Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 7.6 for Salah.
