FPL Editor covers some differentials who have gone under the radar with some statistics from last weekend. It’s a great start to the FPL Tips Gameweek 2 – be sure to give him a follow on his new Twitter account!

✅ Across midfielders, Traoré (6.0) was 1st for xG in GW1 (0.87) & Nørgaard (5.0) was a close 2nd (0.86)- he was also 1st for ‘big chances’ (2). We need more data, but given their cheap price, could become options as 4th/5th mids respectively

It’s Paul Pogba who has ascended to the top of the watchlist for FPL Tips, with a reshuffle on Manchester United players. Could they be worth the triple up given the upcoming fixtures?

FPL Corf’s gameweek thread is back, with a really useful snapshot of the key data from last weekend. West Ham were particularly impressive, topping the charts for both Big Chances and Expected Goals.

Next up, stats guru Bakar pulls together a convincing argument for keeping faith with Manchester City assets for their plum home tie against Norwich. Riyad Mahrez could be the one to deliver.
Most Man City fans on their forums expect Mahrez to start v NOR, particularly if Gündogan is injured as he has one less slot to compete for. Also interesting to note that Norwich conceded twice as many chances on their left than the right this GW which should bode well for Mahrez

FPL Serpent returns with some really crucial information for our Gameweek 2 transfers, with Gundogan a doubt. There’s plenty of mid-priced midfielders to consider as his replacement.
? The Best Gündo Replacements ?
With Gündogan seemingly falling awkwardly against Spurs, his shoulder injury may rule him out for a few weeks. So who do we turn to next?

The bookies odds can be very insightful when it comes to nailing down those selections and captaincy. FPL Salah provides the latest anytime goalscorer odds percentages and the clean sheet odds. Liverpool and Manchester City look particularly well placed.

Captaincy talk is one of the hot topics in the community this week, with Manchester City players and Bruno Fernandes guiding our eye away from the standout Mo Salah. FPL Swe speaks his mind on the big decision.
Salah captain all day long for me this week
Going with Bruno does seem like a little bit of outcome bias imo
Burnley’s defensive numbers against the elite attacks were woeful last season
Salah is the one with the home fixture too which feels very important

As always, Ben Dinnery brings us the all-important injury news ahead of the deadline and some of the biggest news comes from Liverpool, where Andrew Robertson is working his way back to fitness. This may get Tsimikas owners worried.
Working individually. His initial timeline had Robertson targeting a return in GW3. We discussed his injury on last weeks @PremierInjuries Fantasy podcast.

Finally, it’s easy to knee-jerk on transfers from poor initial performances, especially with so many players delivering the goods on opening weekend. FPL Goat urges patience though and it’s an excellent FPL GW2 Tip.
A few tips ahead of GW2 ✅
1. Danny Ings, Grealish, Mahrez could be real Differential Captaincy options
2. Don't waste your transfer on a defender unless very very necessary
