FPL 2023-24 – Form Players Ahead Of Gameweek 3

-

Looking ahead to Gameweek 3, we’ve marked out a collection of players in good form following the opening couple of rounds in the 2023-24 Premier League season and why FPL managers should take note.

Currently the highest scorer of any fantasy asset, midfielder Solly March (£6.6m) has started the season on fire for Brighton. The winger backed up his goal on the opening weekend of the campaign with a brace away at Wolves racking up 24 FPL points over the past two weeks. Hot on his heels though is teammate Kaoru Mitoma (£6.6m). A goal and two assists over the past two gameweeks have seen him acquire 17 fantasy points. Brighton host West Ham in Gameweek 3 on the back of having scored four goals in consecutive fixtures. This underlines the appeal of both March and Mitoma. It would also be remiss not to mention another Brighton player, this time a defender. Like Mitoma, Pervis Estupinan (£5.2m) boasts two assists and a goal to his name.

Another wide player in excellent form is Liverpool’s Luis Diaz (£7.7m) who comes into Gameweek 3 having netted in back-to-back Premier League games. Of the many Liverpool attacking assets available to FPL managers, Diaz offers the best value for money right now. Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) has also accrued two attacking returns so far this campaign but is priced significantly higher than the Colombian.

Two forwards have scored in each of the opening two gameweeks, but neither are players you would necessarily expect. Yoane Wissa (£6.1m) is helping to fill the void left at Brentford through Ivan Toney’s suspension, whilst Nott’m Forest’s Taiwo Awoniyi (£6.5m) backed up his goal off the bench away at Arsenal, with a goal from the start at home to Sheffield Utd.

Antoine Semenyo (£4.5m) has gone somewhat under the radar, perhaps because he plays for a less fashionable Premier League club in Bournemouth. But the £4.5m priced forward has recorded an attacking return in both Gameweek 1 and Gameweek 2. The Cherries host a Spurs side in Gameweek 3, who conceded twice in their last away fixture, which may well play into Semenyo’s favour.
