Each week we will assemble 3 of the best and brightest from the FPL community.
Our expert panel will give quick fire answers to the burning questions all FPL managers will be pondering going into the start of Game Week 2, to help make those agonising decisions easier.
In game week 1 our guest panel had varying degrees of success but there were some spot on calls! Find out how they did here.
Without any further delay we head over to our Panel and boy we have brought you some big hitters for Game Week 2...
> Best Gameweek captain choice?
Romelu Lukaku. Yes yes, it’s such an obvious choice and he’s likely to be the most captained player for Gameweek 2. However, that’s precisely why I’d say he’s the ‘best’ captain - If he fails, then the masses fail together. Nice safety net in my opinion.
It has to be Lukaku. He maintained his pre-season form with a comfortable brace against West Ham and now travels to Swansea who conceded 29 shots last weekend. When he's on a scoring streak like this, you have to captain him!
Lukaku – Playing against a Swansea side that conceded 29 goal attempts in GW1. Big Rom only needs one.He will be captained by around 30% of managers I think. Non-owners beware!
> Which premier league team will produce the biggest FPL points haul?
Difficult to say with only one game played so far this season. My gut instinct answer has to be Manchester City. Yes, Everton look stronger at the back, but, in front of their home crowd and with the likes of Kun, Jesus and KDB on the prowl, I think it could be a mild spanking for Koeman and Co.
I can see strong returns from Leicester at both ends of the pitch. They will be wanting to bounce back from the defeat against Arsenal with a positive performance in their first home game, against a promoted Brighton. I expect goals and a clean sheet.
Liverpool playing Crystal Palace – Palace conceded 3 goals in GW1 to newly promoted Huddersfield.While Liverpool scored 3 past Watford.
> FPL flop of the week?
Harold Kane – As a Chelsea fan, I have to remain optimistic. He should have found the net several times versus Newcastle in Gameweek 1, but, the August hoodoo is still circling over his big head. Kane to blank for me!
Granit Xhaka. He may be leading the transfers in chart, but he's more likely to get a card than an attacking return this week, in a tricky away visit to Stoke.
Kane. This never scoring in August thing is real people! The lad is cursed.
> Surprise standout player of the week?
Probably not that much of a surprise, but I thought David Silva has a corker of a game away to Brighton last weekend. Great stats, great feet and a great feeling the £8m midfielder will bang big against Everton.
Benteke is really going to challenge the Liverpool defence. They will be tired after their midweek Champions league game and Benteke will exploit them during set pieces, just like Watford did.
Son. Should come back into the Spurs team against Chelsea. Chelsea look dodgy at the back.Cahill suspended. I expect Son to take FPL points away from Kane this weekend.
> If you don’t already own him who is the must transfer in player for this game week?
I’ve never wanted someone so badly since I watched Denise Van Outen on Channel 4’s, The Big Breakfast back in the late 90’s. For me, my must-have but don’t-own player this week would be Dele Alli. As an Eriksen owner, I’m fairly content – however, I think that Chelsea team is there for the taking on Sunday afternoon, with Alli to have a field-day!
Steve Mounie looks to be the real deal after scoring a brace against Palace. He is central to an attacking team, with an easy run of games. Next up is their first home game of the season against Newcastle who have a centre-back crisis! Get him in!
Lukaku. He scored a brace in GW1 and is now owned by over 50% of FPL managers. Playing against an average Swansea side next.
> Upset result of the week?
Maybe not much of an upset for the FPL community – unless you own £4m goalkeeper Rob Elliot. But, I think David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town are going to turn Newcastle over. Fresh off the back of a 0-3 away win at Crystal Palace in Gameweek 1, I think they’ll give Rafa and Co a good seeing too.
Everton are going to give Manchester City a challenge in the MNF. I'm expecting Sigurdsson to bolster their attack and we know Wayne Rooney loves a goal against them!
Crystal Palace beating Liverpool. Palace is Liverpool’s bogey team.
> Which big players are at risk of being rotated?
I want to say Jesus/Kun, but, there’s goals to be had between them playing together. Possibly too early in the season to answer this question and I’d hate to jinx it for anyone.
Mane, Firmino and Salah are likely to be rotated with group stage Champions League not yet secure, following a narrow win against Hoffenheim. They play the home leg on Wednesday, so, even if these 3 do start on Saturday they are likely to be subbed off early.
One of Liverpool’s big players. Haven’t a clue which one though.They just played a tough champions league qualifier during the week.
> Which teams are nailed on for clean sheets?
When it comes to clean-sheets, I see them as a damn lottery! On paper, I fancy Manchester City to keep things tight at the back this week, with Kompany fully fit and bossing that back-line. My gut-instinct feeling for a clean-sheet in Gameweek 2 is Burnley at home to Pulis’ West Brom. Not sure how they’ll cope without Michael Keane, but Ben Mee looks both solid and capable.
Manchester United, Burnley, Leicester, Southampton.
Just Man Utd in my opinion. What do you see as the best formation to play for this gameweek ? 3-4-3. There are lots of good options up front at the moment.
> What do you see as the best formation to play for this gameweek?
Personally, I’m playing a 3-4-3 this week, with Lukaku, Jesus and Firmino leading the line. I with no strikers to rotate, I don’t have much of an option really, as that’s how I set things up pre-season. 3-5-2 would be tempting this week, with a midfield full of Eriksen’s, Salah’s and Ramsey’s, but, we can’t have them all hey!
Definitely 3-4-3 now that Mounie and Vokes have emerged as credible budget strikers!
3-4-3. There are lots of good options up front at the moment.
> How many points do you think your own FPL team are going to get this week?
Most nights I dream of being in the 100-point club, but, I’ll settle for a steady 80/85 this week, with captain Lukaku bagging his second consecutive brace of the season. Thank you please.
Tougher fixtures than last week so I'll be happy to make 60.
I will go safe and say 52.Not to many stand out matches this gameweek.
> And finally if you could only pick one drink to enjoy with this gameweek what would it be?
Well, I know you boys like your ales and IPA’s, etc, but, I’ve been in a slightly fruity mood these past few weeks, so, I’ll have a nice chilled pint of Strongbox Dark Fruit please barman. Keep the change!
Mixed Berry Cider.
Bulmers – Cider…mmmm tasty
