GK: James Trafford vs Newcastle (A), Luton (A)

  • Price: 4.5
  • Team: Burnley
  • Predicted points: 6.8

Goalkeeper James Trafford has the highest point prediction from AI of any Burnley player for their Double Gameweek, which is very telling for Burnley’s prospects as fantasy investments right now. He’s made 19 saves to date and has the potential to post a big score if he manages to keep a clean sheet in either fixture.

DEF: Reece Burke vs Everton (A), Burnley (H)

  • Price: 4.0
  • Team: Luton
  • Predicted points: 6.5

Luton are still searching for their first clean sheet of the season and that may come in this Gameweek with opponents Everton and Burnley among the most goal-shy attacks this campaign with a combined nine goals in 11 games. Burke has had four shots on goal this season, the most of any Luton defender.

DEF: Amari’i Bell vs Everton (A), Burnley (H) (X)

  • Price: 4.0
  • Team: Luton
  • Predicted points: 6.5

A double up on the Luton defence with Amari’i Bell is a bold move from AI, but stacking defences is a viable strategy in daily fantasy football and has the potential for high rewards. Luton’s Bell has completed a maximum 450 minutes this season, the most of anyone in their backline and he’s also had one Big Chance on goal.

DEF: Kieran Trippier vs Burnley (H)

  • Price: 6.6
  • Team: Newcastle
  • Predicted points: 5.1

Trippier stole the show in Gameweek 6 with his 18-point haul against Sheffield United which included three assists. He ranks top among defenders for key passes and his set piece involvement is key with 21 corners and 10 free kicks taken. Newcastle have also conceded just six Big Chances this season, the lowest in the Premier League.

MID: Mohamed Salah vs Tottenham (A)

  • Price: 12.5
  • Team: Liverpool
  • Predicted points: 6.4

Salah is currently winning the race as the most consistent player in the Premier League this season, having delivered an attacking return in every single Gameweek, amassing three goals and four assists. He should be considered fixture proof, especially with confirmation that he remains first choice on penalties.

MID: Son Heung-min vs Liverpool (H)

  • Price: 9.2
  • Team: Tottenham
  • Predicted points: 6.3

Son Heung-min continues to thrive as Spurs’ central striker, with five goals in three Gameweeks since moving to this role and he’s the highest FPL points scorer in this time. Son has scored in his last three appearances for Spurs against Liverpool, who have kept just one clean sheet in their opening six fixtures.

MID: Aaron Ramsey vs Newcastle (A), Luton (A)

  • Price: 5.0
  • Team: Burnley
  • Predicted points: 6.3

Burnley’s Aaron Ramsey is well backed by AI this week going into their Double Gameweek, despite an injury-plagued start to the season which has seen him complete just 94 minutes to date. In that time he has had two shots on goal and created one Big Chance for his team-mates. The second fixture against Luton carries the most promise.

MID: Bruno Fernandes vs Crystal Palace (H)

  • Price: 8.4
  • Team: Man Utd
  • Predicted points: 5.9

Bruno Fernandes continues to show his quality in FPL, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win against Burnley last time out. His routes to points are plentiful, with goal threat, creativity and set piece involvement. Fernandes has a great record against Crystal Palace, scoring home and away against them last season.

MID: Josh Brownhill vs Newcastle (A), Luton (A)

  • Price: 4.8
  • Team: Burnley
  • Predicted points: 5.7

It should come as no surprise to see the AI backing the maximum possible six players in the optimal Free Hit squad, with Brownhill the final Burnley piece of the jigsaw. He has had five shots on goal this season and made four key passes. He’s also on set pieces, having taken 10 corners and two free kicks.

FWD: Erling Haaland vs Wolves (A)

  • Price: 14.1
  • Team: Man City
  • Predicted points: 8.7

Notably, Erling Haaland remains the top captain asset this week according to AI, despite the temptation to go with a player who has two fixtures. He remains the top performing FPL player this season with 10 goal involvements and he was rested in the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United in the midweek Carabao Cup fixture.

FWD: Carlton Morris vs Everton (A), Burnley (H)

  • Price: 5.5
  • Team: Luton
  • Predicted points: 8.1

Luton Town striker Carlton Morris is the pick of the assets with a Double Gameweek 7, having been involved in all of their three goals so far this season. He’s converted twice from the penalty spot which has been an important route to points. Both of his opponents have failed to keep a clean sheet so far this season.
