Moise Kean (£7.0m fwd)

Everton have signed the 6 foot 19 year old CF from Juventus for £29m.

He started 5 games plus 8 as sub for Juve in Serie A last season for 6 goals and 1 assist at an eye popping goal or assist every 76 mins which is insane.  Aguero country.  He’s played 3 times for the Italian National team.

That’s backed up by close to Aguero underlying shooting stats of an xG90 of 0.65 and an xA of 0.07.  The latter of which is disappointing.

All this has been tempered by the fact that it has been done on only 527 minutes in 18/19.

Here’s an article on his which questions how he would fit into Everton’s system.  Everton’s attack has relied on crosses from Digne and Sigurdsson and Kean’s strength isn’t aerial by any stretch as you’ll see from his radar profile in the article.

Whether he’s ready to start GW1 is questionable but he will almost certainly be the number 1 striker.  He hasn’t had any pre-season minutes with Everton

Nicolas Pepe (£9.5m mid)

Wow what a steep price in FPL is the first thing that hits you.

Nicolas Pepe is 6 foot 24yo RW who signed from Lille for Arsenal for £72m.

In 18/19 he had 37 starts plus 1 as sub in Ligue 1 for 22 goals (including 9 pens many of which he won himself) and 11 assists.  That’s a pretty incredible goal or assist every 101 minutes.  His NPxG is 0.37 and an xA of 0.28 which is good and similar to Son, Jota and Deuloefu.  2 of which are much cheaper in a league people would say is more difficult..

I think it’s likely he will start as a RAM in a 4-2-3-1 and Mkhitaryan will be the likely victim.  Again he hasn’t played for Arsenal in pre-season which may question him starting GW1

This is a good youtube video on him and a 4-4-2 article on him

Sebastian Haller (£7.5m fwd)

West Ham signed the 6 foot 3 inch 25 year old CF from Frankfurt.

Last season in the Bundesliga he started 23 games plus 6 as sub in the Budesliga for 15 goals and 9 assists at a goal or assist every 91 minutes which is a pretty incredible stat.

He’s played 20 games for the French U21 side.

His NPxG is 0.47 with an xA of 0.30.  Those stats aren’t a million miles away from Salah and Sterling they are so good.  It’s just the Bundesliga difference.  The xA is exceptional for a CF.

Played 70 odd minutes in the last pre-season game so pretty certain he will start.

Here’s an article on him



Harry Maguire (£5.5m def)

Not a new player but I thought I’d mention him anyway

Man Utd signed the Leicester CB for a world record for a Def £80m

I won’t go into stats as everyone will know him.  His attacking ability is a  bit overstated when you look at the stats of a goal or assist every 866 minutes which is roughly every 10 games.

He will certainly start along side Lindelof and while he may help Man Utd become the passing build from the back team that OGS wants (something Lindelof can do anyway) his lack of pace will make it a good thing that speedster and recoverer extraordinaire Wan Bissaka was signed.

Maguire is going to miss Ndidi’s protection.  Ndidi tackles per game 3.8. Interceptions 2.2.  Matic 1.8 and 1.1.  That’s on very little average possession difference

Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m mid)

Newcastle signed the 5 foot 8 inch 22 year old right winger (although he can play all over the AM positions) from Nice.  He started 33 games in Ligue1 last season plus 1 as sub for 6 goals and 5 assists at a pretty unimpressive goal or assist every 264 minutes.

He played 30 mins in the last preseason game so it’s possible he could start.

Here’s an article on him

Oliver McBurnie (£6.0m fwd)

Sheffield United signed the 6 foot 2  23 year old CF from Swansea for £18m.

In the Championship started 37 games plus 5 as sub and scored 22 goals plus 4 assists and a goal or assists every 131 minutes.  That’s ok but you’d be looking for more to transition to the PL.

I would expect him to start for Sheffield given their alternatives especially as he played half a game in their last friendly.
