Neal Maupay has caught the eye with three consecutive goals. He comes in at a budget price and is somewhat a differential. FPL Swede provides all of the key analysis of his output for the coming run of fixtures.

Richarlison has been in fantastic form in recent weeks, with three goals in his last four games. Up next is a weak Arsenal defence, who have a whole host of issues within their flanks. FPL Football Advice provides an informative thread for the Gameweek 18 tips.
🇧🇷 Richarlison thread 💭
The 7th highest scoring midfielder, yet Richarlison hasn’t even come close to a 10% ownership this season.

There’s just a couple of days left to play the first wildcard. FPL Heisenberg provides his tips on players to select for the next couple of games, to set managers up nicely for a Christmas or New Year wildcard. Use it or lose it.
Unfortunately I couldn't appear on @ffh_podcast this week as planned. 👎
I was looking forward to talking about players to target for those who still have their first Wildcard to use. 📝
The only fixtures to consider are just the next two, GW18/GW19.

FPL Jeb has provided a fantastic infographic for the Gameweek 18 tips. Up first it’s goalkeepers: now could be the time to make a goalkeeper transfer, especially those using a wildcard soon. Ramsdale leads the way, but Schmeichel has the performance points.
Where do Goalkeepers get their points from this season in @OfficialFPL?
I decided to look into the data and will share the results in this thread.

Spurs midfielders are hugely popular this week, with many managers considering a double up on both Son and Alli. There are convincing arguments for both, and some are even coming under consideration for the armband. The Tinker Men provide the key statistics.
Not much between Son and Alli since Mourinho has taken charge
▪️Both players scored all of their big chances
▪️Son with 3 double digit hauls to Alli's 1
▪️Son has 2 blanks to Alli's 1
▪️Alli has a higher xG over the 5GWs
©️ Are you thinking of captaining either? pic.twitter.com/HZSg3sQmky

FPL Salah returns with another round of bookies odds for goalscorers and clean sheets. It’s slim pickings where goals are concerned, which could point to a low scoring gameweek. Marcus Rashford should be popular for the captaincy.
