Fantasy Premier League 2020/21 Gameweek 7: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 7 is set to get underway on Friday the 30th of October.

The first clash of the weekend pits Wolves against Crystal Palace at 8:00 PM UK time.

As a result, your team must be locked in by 6:30 PM UK time on Friday.

Gameweek 7 will come to an end on Monday the 2nd of November, when Leeds and Leicester face off.

Below are 101’s FPL tips for the upcoming game week.

Three in, including Tottenham midfielder

Patrick Bamford (5.9)

Prior to 2020/21, Patrick Bamford had struggled in the Premier League.

The Englishman enjoyed spells in the top-flight with all of with Middlesbrough, Norwich, Burnley and Crystal Palace – all of which saw Bamford toil in his efforts in front of goal.

In fact, the former Chelsea youth had scored just one Premier League goal prior to the current campaign.

This season, though, under Marcelo Bielsa’s tutelage, Bamford has transformed into one of the most feared forwards in the top-flight.

In six league outings for Leeds, Bamford has already managed to find the net on six occasions, whilst also providing two assists.

Such an impressive return has seen Bamford, to this point, establish himself as the 2nd-best forward on FPL.

As such, with a price-tag of just 5.9, you really can’t afford not to have him in your side.

Romain Saiss (5.3)

With Liverpool’s full-backs under-performing so far this season, it is probably wise to swap them out for cheaper options.

One of the best so far this campaign has certainly been Wolves’ Romain Saiss.

At a cost of just 5.3, the Moroccan is a lot cheaper than Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, yet his points return has been far better.

Wolves have been sound defensively in 2020/21, keeping four clean sheets in six outings.

And with Saiss having also chipped in with one goal, he is currently the top defender on FPL.

Nuno Santo’s side are also set to face a low-scoring Crystal Palace side this game week, meaning another clean sheet does seem likely.

Heung-min Son (9.5)

Tottenham are set to take on Brighton this game week.

The Seagulls have played some thoroughly attractive football at times this season. Their defending, though, has left a lot to be desired.

In fact, Graham Potter’s side have conceded league 12 goals already this term. Only Liverpool, West Brom and Fulham have let in more.

As such, with Tottenham’s attack in such fine form, you would be making a big mistake in going without one of either Harry Kane or Heung-min Son this week.

Both have been in superb form of late, with their link-up play central to the Lilywhites’ success.

Three out, including Arsenal midfielder

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (11.7)

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang enjoyed a sensational 2019/20.

The Gabonese hitman notched a hefty 22 goals in the Premier League, missing out on the Golden Boot by a single strike.

So, when FPL moved Aubameyang to a midfield berth for 2020/21, he looked set for a massive points haul, with midfielders of course afforded more points per goal than forwards.

However, since a strike on the opening weekend versus a poor Fulham side, and then an assist a week later, Aubameyang hasn’t managed a single Premier League goal contribution for the Gunners.

Anthony Martial (8.8)

Anthony Martial is, of course, currently sitting out a Premier League suspension, after being sent off vs Tottenham.

But, if you did already own him, and opted to leave the Frenchman on your bench until his return, you probably made a mistake.

Even before his dismissal vs Spurs, Martial had been under-performing, notching just one assist in three Premier League outings.

As such, with the likes of Patrick Bamford and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in much better form, and available for a lower fee, there really isn’t any reason to still have Martial in your side.

Tariq Lamptey (4.7)

When it comes to attacking output, Tariq Lamptey has been superb this season.

At a price of just 4.7, the young Brighton full-back is a budget Trent Alexander-Arnold of sorts, having notched three assists in the league already in 2020/21.

As mentioned above, though, Brighton have been woeful at the back to this point in the campaign.

This defensive leakiness means that, even amongst budget defenders, Lamptey is simply not worth owning.

The likes of Ezri Konsa, Jannik Vestergaard, James Justin, Max Kilman and more are all outscoring the Seagulls stopper, whilst coming in at a similar price.
