The teams are ranked by the strength of the defences faced over the first 6 gameweeks.

The strength of the defences faced are based on the averages of their expected goals against and their actual against for last season with a general adjustment for home and away. . The teams are then divided up into 5 colours of 8 home/away teams each. A couple of teams have had adjustments for late season improvement or injured players returning.

A schedule for defenders and GKs will be out tomorrow

Player Suggestions

Here’s some early player suggestions from the top 7 ranked teams. Obviously there’s still 2 months to GW1 so things could change massively.

The prices are from the Premier League price reveal on the Premier league site for the 21/22 season


No one for me at the moment. Maupay was in and out of the side and Trossard’s stats for me aren’t good enough


Salah Mid £12.5m – 20/21 PPM 6.2

Jota Mid £7.5m – 20/21 PPM 4.5


Wait until GW4. I have read stuff which suggests £7.5m fwd Jimenez could be fit. 20/21 PPM 4.3


£8.0m Fwd Calvert-Lewin – 20/21 PPM 5.0

West Ham

£7.5m Fwd Antonio – 20/21 PPM

Lingard was on loan last season and for now has returned to Man Utd so I haven’t included him

Man Utd

£12.0m Mid Fernandes – 20/21 PPM 6.6

£7.5M Mid Greenwood – 20/21 PPM 3.4 (distorted by sub appearances)

Aston Villa

£8.0m Mid Grealish – 20/21 PPM 5.2

£7.5m Fwd Watkins – 20/21 PPM 4.5
