Notes and methodolgy are below.
Here is the link to the google spreadsheet. You can go to file>make a copy and then sort it how you like.
Ignore the numbering. Players have been removed due to injury, gametime risk or no longer in the league.
Some player comments
Antonio, Martial and Richarlison
These players were the main ones reclassified as forwards from midfielders. Their point scoring has been adjusted accordingly.
His underlying stats are pretty ordinary. Massive over performance of them last season which he has never done before
Good stats and played last few games just held back by average minutes over the season. Still not a guarantee to start.
A false position as he’s one of the few players who consistently over performs his underlying stats
New transfers or in promoted teams
The player I’m a little sceptical starting is Rodrigo as it’s a question whether he’s Bielsa fit to do his pressing job.
Werners stats are incredible.
A fixture ease schedule for attacking players
Here’s a graphic where the teams are ranked by the ease of the defences they face over the next 6 gameweeks.
