GW1 DREAM TEAM

Best Player — Fred Onyedinma (Luton, MID 5.5) who assisted the first two goals against Peterborough and scored third himself. He is just 2 goals away from repeating his last season goal contribution record.

STAT LEADERS

Shots

7 — Brereton Diaz (Blackburn, MID 7.0)

5 — Lolley (Nottingham Forest, MID 6.0), Brown (Stoke, MID 5.0)

4 — Bacuna (Cardiff, MID 5.0), Woodrow (Barnsley, FW 8.0), Dolan (Blackburn, MID 5.0), Robinson (West Bromwich, MID 8.5)

Key Passes

Huddersfield deep bench-warmer, winger Sorba Thomas (MID 5.0) started at left wing-back role after LBs Toffolo and Ruffels were hit by Covid. And he made 9 key passes! Nine! Deserves at least one more start.

6 — Vrancic (Stoke, MID 6.5)

5 — Giles (Cardiff, DEF 6.0), Smith (Stoke, DEF 5.5)

Big chances (including shots and chances created)

4 — Onyedinma (Luton, MID 5.5, 2+2)

3 — Brereton Diaz (Blackburn, MID 7.0, 3+0)

2 — Mowatt (West Bromwich, MID 7.5, 0+2), Martin (Bristol, FW 6.0, 1+1), King (Bristol, MID 5.5, 1+1), Bacuna (Cardiff, MID 5.0, 2+0), Giles (Cardiff, DEF 6.0, 0+2), Thomas (Huddersfield, MID 5.0, 0+2), Barkhuizen (Preston, MID 5.5, 1+1), Lewis-Potter (Hull, MID 6.0, 1+1), Vrancic (Stoke, MID 6.5, 0+2), Jutkiewicz (Birmingham, FW 6.5, 1+1)

GW2 PREVIEW

LONG TERM PICKS

Ben Brereton Diaz (Blackburn MID 7.0) — player with 7 goals and 4 assists in 27.1 90-minute segments last season is now a penalty-taker after Adam Armstrong’s departure to Southampton. Armstrong took 8 penalty kicks, Ben can end up with more goals from the spot than non-penalty goals.

Tommy Smith (Stoke, DEF 5.5) — made 2 assists and contributed to 5 of 18 Stoke shots against Reading (all 5 are key passes). 27.8% is a pretty big share. He’ll still be decent if this figure drops to 16.7% (1 shot/key pass per team’s every 6 shots)

SHORT TERM PICKS

Sammie Szmodics (Peterborough, MID 6.0) vs Derby (H)— Huddersfield’s depleted-by-covid squad made 18 shots against the Rams. Peterborough must be at least not worse than them.

Tyrhys Dolan (Blackburn, MID 5.0) vs Millwall (A) — last season didn’t give a clear answer to a question who would play centre-forward in absence of Adam Armstrong. Ben Brereton Diaz or Sam Gallagher, who were more deployed on left and right flank respectively. But Tony Mowbray surprised us by fielding RW Tyrhys Dolan there. Guaranteed at least one more start before Rovers sign Adam Armstrong replacement.

GW2 EXPECTED XIs

12:30 BST Peterborough v Derby

15:00 BST Barnsley v Coventry

15:00 BST Birmingham v Stoke

15:00 BST Blackpool v Cardiff

15:00 BST Huddersfield v Fulham

If Pipa and Sinani are fit, I see Huddersfield lining up in 4–3–3:

If one of them is not, it should be 3–5–2 that was used last week:

Fulham XI:

15:00 BST Hull v QPR

15:00 BST Middlesbrough v Bristol City

Neil Warnock said he has a problem with fitness of mostly forward players, so don’t be surprised if someone doesn’t feature.

15:00 BST Millwall v Blackburn

15:00 BST Nottingham Forest v Bournemouth

15:00 BST Reading v Preston

15:00 BST West Bromwich v Luton

20:00 BST Swansea v Sheffield United
