Although we’re still waiting for Tottenham to get going this season, Kane has scored a solid five goals in six games and even if Erling Haaland takes up a large chunk of our budget, he deserves it, as so many managers look to be in which he invests money their attack.
Kane meets a Leicester side who have conceded 23 goals in their last 10 away games and feel ripe for selection. Spurs’ games elsewhere have been mixed but their record in the north London derby is good, while Brighton could be another prospect without Graham Potter.
A fantasy favorite from last season, it’s been a slow start to the new campaign for Bowen. The West Ham winger has seen a starting price collapse from 8.5m to 8.1m as part of an attack that has managed just three goals overall.
But is now the time to buy? David Moyes’ side are on a good run towards the World Cup and Bowen could become a penalty taker after scoring against Steaua Bucharest in the Europa Conference League.
Trippier’s ownership has skyrocketed over the past few weeks and continues to soar with all of the wildcards in play this week. After an eight-point win against Crystal Palace last time out, conceding a goal and two bonuses, it’s not hard to see why.
Part of an improving Newcastle defence, Trippier offers points at both ends of the pitch and is over all set pieces. His price tag of 5.3m is still good value provided Eddie Howe’s side make the most of a good run of games before the November break.
If you switched to Mitrovic earlier in the season, congratulations: you’re ahead of the pack. The Fulham forward will be one of the most popular picks in the game at this next stretch due to a promising schedule.
In any case, to be honest, Mitrovic could be game-proof. If he can score four goals in three games against Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham, what will he do when he comes up against Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth in two of his next four?
Is there a risk of investing too much in a defense that’s only mid-table in terms of xG? Yes, probably, but then Pope can earn points when Newcastle concede shots provided he saves them.
So far the former Burnley goalkeeper is doing just that, batting away inferior long-range efforts as he has so often done at Turf Moor. Like Trippier, it’s gaining popularity quickly, but a price tag of 5.1 million still feels reasonable.
