Important note before going further

The first schedule ranks players by their NON penalty underlying stats and expected assists converted to FPL points in GW1-5 to date. Those who have taken penalties have an * next to their name

That rank is compared to their 19/20 season rank.

This seasons PPMs are compared to last season.

Then there’s there fixture ease ranking and lastly their average minutes in the first 4 gameweeks

The 2nd schedule shows their xG90 and xA90 plus their value for money factor and their anytime goalscoring odds

Like the defender rankings I’m looking to make sense of the season start as far as I can and hope comparing the start of players season to the context of last season

I’ve already posted the defender rankings

Player values are as of Wednesday 21 October

The schedule ranked by midfielders NON penalty underlying stats over GW1-5  

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.

Making sense of the stats

Ideally you would want players with good value for money stats who have good fixtures and are showing that their current performance is close to last seasons in ranking terms.  That lineup is fairly thin on the ground so here’s a few players to talk about.  It is only 5 gameweeks though and I have found these short periods very unreliable.


Again Son ticks all the boxes for me in terms of a transfer in

Mane and Salah

I would definitely have 1.  Mane has the way better stats and Salah’s non penalty shooting stats are actually pretty ordinary compared to last season.  I would still go with Salah for the penalty upside myself.


In incredible form with good fixtures


In great form with good fixtures.  Quite assist based is the only negative for me as you can see from his anytime goalscorer odds

Trossard and March

Trossard has produced very good stats for the price but has not been able to convert them to FPL points.  March is an assist based £5.0m player who if you have some cash lying round and having nothing else to do may want to gamble on him over the current £4.5m players


In a stuttering Man City side Foden can give you coverage at a cheap price when you’d think an upturn will come

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.

  1. I am surprised that Jorghino doesn’t make the list. According to Understats, his current xG per 90 is .80 and his xA per 90 is .04. Was he not included on purpose due to his xG being penalty based?

    • Yeah the inclusion was based on converting your non penalty xG and xA into FPL points. Cheers and good luck this week Scott

    • Hi Allam, Points Per match, expected goals per 90 minutes, non penalty expected goals per 90 minutes, expected assists per 90 minutes, Value for money, average minutes played this season

      Hope that helps
