After thrashing Watford 8-0, it’s no surprise to see Manchester City talk of the town for the Gameweek 7 tips.
There’s also a swing in the fixtures, with Chelsea looking to have a particularly favourable schedule going forward.
With six gameweeks of data, James Copeland studies the Expected Goals statistics for the Gameweek 7 tips over on the Fantasy Bet blog. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne top the key metrics.
"The only thing more ridiculous than City’s average xG per game (3.50) is the fact that, so far, they’ve actually overperformed it."
