This weeks panel:
We head over to our panel now who are going to give you the lowdown on the main factors to consider in game week 1 - Chef will be kicking us off this week.
> Captain Lukaku or Kane?
Aguero sorry I mean Lukaku
Lukaku loves to score against the hammers and will want to introduce himself to the Old Trafford faithful with a bang.
> Which premier league team produce the biggest FPL points haul?
Man City playing Brighton.
Man City playing Brighton - City Looked very impressive in pre-season and look explosive. Aguero, Jesus and KDB to run riot.
Palace Playing Huddersfield.
> FPL flop of the week?
Sanchez - can't see him being 100% fit after confed cup and extended rest and will lack match fitness so struggle to make an impact.
> Surprise standout player of the week?
Vardy - Leicester play best on the counter and Arsenal will try to play the game on the front foot leaving gaps for the pacy Vardy to exploit.
Mounie from Huddersfield.
> If you don’t already own him who is the must transfer in player for this game week?
Salah guy will be fire.
Kane looked sharp in pre-season and with no summer tournament slowing him down, I expect him to shrug off the August blues and do well against Newcastle.
> Upset result of the week?
Leicester beating Arsenal if you are putting a gun to my head.
Leicester away at Arsenal - rationale same as Vardy.
> Which big players are at risk of being rotated?
Aguero - Sterling has been used in pre-season in the new 352 system coming on for Aguero a couple of times.
> Which teams are nailed on for clean sheets?
Man U and Man City, Chelsea too as Burnley struggle away from home.
Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Everton - Burnley will park the bus and are very limited in attack, City will high press and keep the ball eliminating Brightons attack, Man United will control the game and give WHU very few chances and Stoke look poor this year with no new attacking additions.
Chelsea & Man City.
> What do you see as the best formation to play for this gameweek?
3-4-3 every week not just this week.
3-4-3 - In my opinion, it provides the best overall balance as there are a few good picks in the 5.5-6.5 striker price bracket and I think clean sheets are hard to predict in the opening games which limits the appeal of going 4/5 at the back.
> Wow many points do you think your own FPL team are going to get this week?
I will go a safe 55.
> And finally if you could only pick one drink to enjoy with this gameweek what would it be?
@WestonsOldRosie as it will make me forget my captain fail!
@Sharpsbrewery Doombar ale - delicious amber ale reminds me of the beer at my local pub called “The cat” which is one of the best i have had.
@OrchardThieves cider - lovely stuff.
