Due a goal in Gameweek 27
With Brentford v Fulham to come later tonight, both Ivan Toney and Aleksandar Mitrovic have a chance to remove themselves from the list.
The former has complicated FPL popularity right now, being the week’s most-bought player despite an imminent FA hearing and likely ban. However, in the meantime, he has a match during Blank Gameweek 28 that’s surrounded by two doubles.
Of last week’s names, both Darwin Nunez and Alexis Mac Allister netted at the weekend. The Brighton midfielder also picked up an assist, with seven penalty area touches and a 1.54 xGI. It’s a brilliant rate heading into the enticing double-header versus Leeds and Crystal Palace.
Neither Eddie Nketiah nor Fabian Schar participated in proceedings due to injury, whilst Neal Maupay was restricted to a one-minute cameo.
Meanwhile, Martin Odegaard is there because of an extraordinary 11 shots during Arsenal’s dramatic 3-2 win over Bournemouth. All of them missed but substitute Reiss Nelson eventually came through and rescued the Gunners.
