Gameweek 17 Forwards

Many FPL managers would have been relieved to see Anthony Gordon (£5.9m) in the Newcastle starting line-up for their Champions League clash with AC Milan in midweek. The winger had been doubtful ahead of that match with a hamstring problem but after playing 62 minutes, the expectation is that he will be ready to go again in Gameweek 17, which sees Newcastle host Fulham. Gordon’s record at St. James’ Park this season has been incredible and he is still yet to go a single home league match without recording at least one attacking return.

The heavy-hitting premium assets of Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) and Heung-Min Son (£9.6m) will once again command huge attention come Gameweek 17 and understandably so with them being two of just three players in all positions with over 100 FPL points to their name already. Salah, the highest scoring fantasy asset as it stands with 11 goals, seven assists and 127 points, has a home fixture against Man Utd up next. The same fixture last season saw Liverpool triumph 7-0 with Salah scoring twice and big things are expected of the Egyptian once again. Son is coming off the back of one goal, two assists and a 17-point-haul in Gameweek 16 and with 29 FPL points over the past three gameweeks, the Spurs attacking midfielder travels to Nottingham Forest in formidable form.

An ankle injury is expected to sideline Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo (£6.9m) and those fantasy bosses looking for a cheaper-priced replacement could well pivot to either Marcus Tavernier (£5.4m) or Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m). Tavernier bagged two assists and 9 FPL points for Bournemouth in their 0-3 win away at Man Utd last weekend, while Doucoure boasts a goal in each of Everton’s last two league fixtures.
