Which players are due a goal in Gameweek 26?

Picking out the players that look likely to score in an FPL gameweek is a big part of management. Using recent underlying stats from the Fantasy Football Scout, we assess which players are due a goal in Gameweek 26.

Recent FPL goals

Some attackers are in great form over the last four Gameweeks:

However, others are shooting and getting in the right places without having either luck or end product. So let’s look at the players who have met the following criteria over these four:

  • No more than one goal
  • At least eight shots
  • At least two big chances
  • An expected goals (xG) tally of 1.10
  • An expected goal involvement (xGI) of 1.30

Due a goal in Gameweek 26

Of last week’s lowly three names, Raheem Sterling put Chelsea ahead against his former club Man City but John McGinn could not muster any shots for Aston Villa.

With this being published before Monday night’s meeting between Everton and Crystal Palace, it’s not yet known whether Dominic Calvert-Lewin has ended his 13-match goalless streak in Gameweek 25. He enters as the league’s biggest xG underachiever (-5.85).

Ranked by xG

It’s also before the Tuesday and Wednesday games that see Man City, Brentford, Liverpool and Luton play a second time. Not only that, the latter two have a Blank Gameweek 26 just like Chelsea and Spurs.

Therefore, there are only three new entrants to this list. Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon scored from the penalty spot versus Bournemouth whilst deputising for injured team-mates up front. He had four attempts, two on target and 1.06 xG but now has to face rampant Arsenal.

Slightly behind Gordon on 116 overall points is Pascal Gross. The German assisted one of Brighton’s five goals at Sheffield United to make it three successive matches with an attacking return. He’ll be a top target when replacing the well-owned assets that blank this weekend.

There’s also the enticing option of a Wolves midfielder about to host Sheffield United. Pedro Neto and Hwang Hee-chan immediately come to mind but Pablo Sarabia would be even more of a differential. He’s had three big chances in the last four outings.
