Salah took his goal tally to six for the season with his strike against Everton in gameweek five. Only Son and Calvert-Lewin (both seven) have scored more goals than the Egyptian this season. He is top amongst midfielders for shots (25), shots in the box (SiB) (19) and shots on target (SoT) (11). He trails only Son (16) for chances created (15). Liverpool have scored 13 goals this season, only Everton (14) and Spurs (15) have scored more. The Reds are also top for shots (97), and only Spurs (37) have landed more SoT than their 35. Sheff. Utd have conceded seven goals this season, keeping zero clean sheets. Only Fulham (28), West Brom (35) and Newcastle (36) have allowed opponents more SoT than the Blades’ 25. Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 7.8 for Salah.

Harry Kane (bur)

Kane has found the back of the net five times already this season, only Calvert-Lewin (seven) has been more prolific amongst forwards. He is top amongst forwards for shots (25) and SoT (13) while only C. Wilson (seven) and Calvert-Lewin (eight) have been afforded more ‘big chances’ than his six. He is also top amongst forwards for chances created (13) and ‘big chances’ created (seven). He has already risen in price by 0.2 this week and could potentially rise again as per our Price Change Predictor feature. No team has scored more goals (15), landed more SoT (37) or fashioned more ‘big chances’ (20) than Spurs this season. Burnley have conceded eight goals in their four matches, keeping just one clean sheet. They have allowed opponents 18 SoT and five ‘big chances’ over those matches. Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 5.5 for Kane.

Neil Maupay (WBA)

Maupay will be confident of adding to his tally of four goals as Brighton host West Brom at the Amex Stadium. Only Vardy, Kane (both five) and Calvert-Lewin (seven) have scored more goals than the Frenchman (four) and as the Stats Sandbox shows, his total of eight SoT is bettered only by Calvert-Lewin (12) and Kane (13). Only Vardy, Kane (both six), C. Wilson (seven) and Calvert-Lewin (eight) have been afforded more ‘big chances’ than Maupay’s five. Brighton have scored nine goals this season with only seven teams managing more. The Seagulls trail only Liverpool (97) for shots (75), and no team has conceded more goals than West Brom’s 13 this season. The Baggies (35) currently only trail Newcastle (36) for SoT conceded. No team has allowed opponents more ‘big chances’ than their 14. Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 4.5 for the Frenchman.
