There’s player transfer suggestions at the end if you want to skip all the stats preamble.

Stats definitions:

I’ve firstly ordered the teams by what I think is their defensive strength based their goals, clean sheets and xG/shots conceded.

The stats after that are their:

fixture ease ranking so you can see who has the best fixtures to the end of the season. The first figure is GW26-30, the 2nd GW26-28. See our fixture ease article
best cheap secure gametime option and an attacking option so you can compare price.
GK price in as a comparison.
bookies odds for a clean sheet for GW26. The lower the better obviously.

Player transfer suggestions for GW26


The value options of Alexander Arnold, Lovren and Matip all have some uncertainty about them and Gomez is a longer term injury.  Robertson or the GK are the best options at the moment.  Liverpool have no blanks in the blank weeks of GW31 and GW33.  See our doubles and blanks article

Bournemouth (H)
Man Utd (A)
Watford (H)
Everton (A)
Burnley (H)


Doherty appears to be back in the frame which is good although his price now is steep with the cheap Jonny provides a reasonable, if inferior, attacking option. Bennett at £4.1m is even cheaper.

Newcastle (H)
Bournemouth (A)
Huddersfield (A)
Cardiff (H)
Chelsea (A)

C Palace

Tomkins is now cheaper at £4.3m than Wan Bissaka but Wan Bissaka has far better bonus potential.  The GK situation seems resolved with Guiata seemingly first choice.

West Ham (H)
Leicester (A)
Man Utd (H)
Burnley (A)
Brighton (H)

Man Utd

The defence is definitely on the improving scale.  Shaw has better attacking potential than Lindelof but is more injury prone so take your pick there

Fulham (A)
Liverpool (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Southampton (H)
Arsenal (A)

    • Hi They are ranked as the 3rd best defence in the league. It is then you look at the fixtures and the next opponent to make a decision as to wheich transfer you want to make. There’s also a section saying transfer decisions.

      I had thought it was fairly clear in the preamble. I’ll have another look and see if I can make it clearer

      Thanks for the feedback and good luck this week
