The Newcastle attack

More recently in the last six Gameweeks they rank the worst for goals scored (two), second worst for attempts on goal (42) and joint third worst for shots on target (15). This suggests that Newcastle have taken a recent dip in front of goal.
The best Newcastle attackers
One of the best attacking options from Newcastle is Alexander Isak (£6.7m). The striker has started the last two matches and picked up a huge 20 points scoring three goals in those games. Isak leads the Newcastle attack and takes his teams penalties.
Another great option is Joe Willock (£4.7m). The midfielder ranks second amongst his offensive teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement in the last six Gameweeks (1.12). Willock has also managed two returns in his last two matches collecting 13 points from both games.
The Newcastle defence
This season amongst all teams this season Newcastle rank the best in the league for clean sheets kept (12), the best for goals conceded (17), second best for shots on target conceded (77) and the best for big chances conceded (34).
More recently in the last six matches they rank the worst for clean sheets (zero), second best for shots in the box conceded (28), second best for total shots conceded (45) and the fourth best for shots on target conceded (15).
The best Newcastle defensive options
The standout defender for Newcastle is full-back Kieran Trippier (£6m). Not only does he sit as the highest scoring defender in FPL but he also maintains the best distribution stats amongst all defenders in the game.
The second best defensive option could be centre-back Fabian Schar (£5m). He ranks above all of his defensive teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement in the last six matches (1.08). Schar is a considerable threat from set pieces as well.
