By Fantasy Football Fix ()
  1. No.1 predicted by Fix 
  2. Alternative high-ownership option. Over 20%
  3. Differential option. Under 20%

Mohamed Salah (CRY)

Salah was unlucky not to score against Burnley in gameweek 37 and will be looking to surge ahead of Kane in the Golden Boot race with some strikes against Palace. No midfielder has taken more shots in the box (SiB) (14), landed more SoT (six) or fashioned more ‘big chances’ (four) than the Egyptian over the last four gameweeks. Liverpool have scored 11 goals over the aforementioned period, more than any other side. They are top for shots (77) and ‘big chances’ (16). Palace have conceded 10 goals over the last four gameweeks, no side has shipped more. Only Villa (51) have allowed opponents more SiB than the Eagles’ 50. Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 7.5 for Salah.

Patrick Bamford (WBA)

Leeds welcome fans back to Elland Road for the first time since their promotion and Bamford will be looking to add to his total of two goals in the last four gameweeks. He has landed six SoT over that period, at least double any other Leeds player as per our Stats Sandbox feature. Leeds have scored nine goals over the last four gameweeks, only Liverpool (11) have been more prolific. Only Liverpool (23), Leicester, Southampton (each 24), Spurs (28) and Palace (30) have landed more SoT than Leeds’ 22. West Brom have conceded nine goals over the last four gameweeks, keeping no clean sheets. Only Palace (10) have been more porous. No team have allowed opponents more SoT than the Baggies (32) over the aforementioned period. Our Fix Algorithm projects a point score of 5.3 for Bamford.

Michail Antonio (SOU)

Antonio took his total to three goals over the last four gameweeks with a late strike against West Brom. Only Benteke (four) has scored more goals amongst forwards over that period while only Adams (five) has managed more ‘big chances’ than Antonio’s four. He is a popular target this week as per our Transfer Stats feature with a lot of Calvert-Lewin owners making the switch. West Ham have scored six goals over the last four gameweeks and their total of 12 ‘big chances’ is only bettered by Liverpool (16). Southampton have conceded seven goals over the last four gameweeks, keeping no clean sheets. Only West Brom (32) have allowed opponents more SoT than the Saints’ 29 while no side has allowed more ‘big chances’ than their 11. Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 5.2 for Antonio.
