Players with the best stats so far
The Premier League starts tomorrow which means the return of the Fantasy Premier League game. We look back and reflect on some of the players with the best stats so far with the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area.
Taking a look at the players with the best stats so far can be extremely beneficial to fantasy football managers. It can help with some of the most important decisions in the game with things like transfers, captaincy and chip plan.
Manchester City now have a focal point to their attack. That focal point is none other than Erling Haaland (£12.2m). The striker has been in relentless form so far, picking up a whopping 18 goals and three assists in 12 league matches.
Haaland is also maintaining some fantastic stats. Amongst all players in the league he is third for attempts on goal, first for shots in the box, first for big chances total, first for expected goals and first for expected goal involvement.
Tottenham have shown some inconsistencies this season but one player who has remained consistent in their output is Harry Kane (£11.6m). The striker has gone under the radar since the arrival of Erling Haaland, even after collecting 12 goals and one assist from 15 league matches played.
Kane is having a fantastic season and his stats are there to reflect that. Amongst all players in the league he ranks second for goals scored, second for attempts on goal, second for expected goals and second for expected goal involvement,
Fulham have maintained better form than many fans expected ahead of the new season. The newly promoted side are impressive going forward and the main reason for that is Aleksander Mitrovic (£6.8m). The Fulham striker has started the season really well and has already scored nine goals in his 12 matches played.
Mitrovic has also been maintaining some of the best attacking stats in the league. Amongst all players, Mitrovic ranks third for goals scored in the box, first for attempts on goal, second for attempts in the box and first for headed attempts on goal.
Newcastle have shocked the footballing world with their brilliant start to the season. They currently sit third in the Premier League, ahead of heavy hitters like Liverpool and Chelsea. One of their standout players so far is Kieran Trippier (£5.9m).
Trippier has been fantastic and that can be reflected in the fact he is the highest scoring defender in the game. Amongst all players, Trippier ranks first for crosses, first for successful crosses, third for chances created, joint third for big chances created and second for expected assists. They are hugely impressive stats for a defender.
Kevin De Bruyne
One of the biggest reasons as to why Manchester City create so many chances is due too this man. Kevin De Bruyne (£12.6m) is arguably one of the best midfielders to ever grace the Premier League. This season the Belgian has already notched up three goals and nine assists in his 13 matches played.
Kevin De Bruyne is also sustaining some of the best distribution stats in the league. Amongst all players he ranks first for assists created, first for chances created, first for big chances created and first for expected assists.
