Fantasy Premier League GW10 Review: Will Tsimikas Provide The Points?

Despite the absence of Andy Robertson (£6.5m) over the past couple game-weeks, Liverpool have still managed to keep clean sheets on both accounts, with some help from potentially the best value defender available on FPL as of now.

Kostas Tsimikas (£4.5m) has filled in for The Reds since the Scotsman’s injury. And now with Robertson’s expected return to be at some point next year, Tsimikas for me is a must-have. The Greek left-back has already returned dangerous chances from his share of the set pieces, and will likely bag an assist sooner or later with an upcoming tie against Luton.


Watchlist: Ones to Watch


Jack Harrison (£5.5m) has quietly impressed for Everton since his recent arrival. The Toffees winger played a huge hand in their 1-0 triumph over West Ham, having been a thorn in the Hammers’ side all game long. The Blues now face relatively mixed fixtures, however it’s worth looking out for the former youth international.


Crystal Palace centre-half Marc Guéhi (£4.5m) looks set for clean sheet bonuses as The Eagles face Burnley, Everton and Luton in the next 3. And although he doesn’t quite pose the same goal threat as fellow teammate Joachim Andersen (£5.0m), the England international holds a reasonable attacking threat himself, which should make up for this alongside the spare £0.5m.


Palace’s respectable clean sheet tally of 4 can only be bettered by Arsenal, making either of their central defenders solid options respectively. Having both of the two is a valid shout with such promising fixtures, especially if your team lacks quality in defence.


Final Thoughts: Striker Selections


I’m sure that the Manchester Derby result cleared up any doubts over Haaland’s (£14.0m) essential status. The Norwegian talisman put up 16 points in just this single game-week, ensuring all of the gaffers who got rid saw red arrows across their leader-boards.


In terms of Nketiah’s (£5.5m) 5-star performance, although I am slightly tempted to purchase after his recent display, there are definitely better options out there for now, especially considering that Jesus’ injury isn’t long-term. That isn’t to say that I’m ruling it out though, as the Gunners youngster has seen rapid improvement, and who’s to say he won’t be in the essential category in a few weeks' time.
