Recommended Player for Gameweek 10

Recommended Player for Gameweek 10 - Kyle Walker (Tottenham)

"Kyle Walker possesses all the qualities to be a top right back"
(triffic tottenham)

My recommended player for gameweek 10 is not Silva, Nani or Van der Vaart, but rather future England international Kyle Walker.  I don't often praise Tottenham's defence, considering the fact that they have conceded more than a goal a game this season in the Premier League and conceded 46 league goals last season.  However, I am making an exception for Kyle Walker.  As is evident from the above video, he is an attack minded right back, who I believe will definitely be picked for England's Euro 2012 squad and possibly the British football team for the London Olympics.  It was ironic that the spread of the Tottenham riots prevented him from potentially winning his first senior England cap in August.  But the 21 year old has already shown a glimpse of his true rising stardom in the first 9 matches of the Premier League.  He is averaging a respectable 4.5 FPL points per game, as well as having a goal (scored against Arsenal) and an assist to his name.  He will almost certainly score or assist a bit more this season, especially with inspiration from the likes of Bale, Van Der Vaart, Modric and Defoe.  At 5.4 he is a bargain; his price will almost certainly smash the 6.0 mark in the near to distant future.  I believe that injury and extreme weather pending, he should be a mainstay in your FPL team until mid-January!  And here's why... look at Tottenham's next 12 Premier League fixtures:

30 Oct - Queens Park Rangers H (winnable with a likely clean sheet)
6 Nov  - Fulham A (a fair possibility of clean sheet)
21 Nov  - Aston Villa H (mild possibility of a clean sheet)
26 Nov - West Bromwich Albion A (fair possibility of clean sheet)
3 Dec - Bolton Wanderers H (winnable with a good possibility of a clean sheet)
11 Dec - Stoke City A (mild possibility of a clean sheet)
18 Dec - Sunderland H (winnable with a good possibility of a clean sheet)
22 Dec - Chelsea H (highly likely to concede in this match)
27 Dec - Norwich City A (winnable with a fair possibility of a clean sheet)
31 Dec - Swansea City A (winnable with a fair possibility of a clean sheet)
2 Jan - West Bromwich Albion H (winnable with a good possibility of a clean sheet)
14 Jan - Wolverhampton H (winnable with a good possibility of a clean sheet)

I would say that only Chelsea in their next 12 matches seem to be a major goal threat to Tottenham.

The Blues are the only top 4 team from last year that Tottenham will face until mid-Jan 2012!

Buy Kyle Walker whilst he is cheap.  He is definitely worth having in your team.

PS - My Captain for GW 10 will be my problem player ... Edin Dzeko!
