The International break is over and FPL managers are reassembling ahead of the return of club football. Whilst a certain Portugese manager is back in town, most of us are sweating over the return of our International stars. Please, no more injuries! Dave Black take a look at the FPL weekend ahead.
Jose Mourinho's appointment at Tottenham has dominated the football news this week. From an FPL perspective, that Tottenham defence is only going to tighten up but just how quick can the re-employed one work his magic? There's worrying news coming out of Liverpool as FPL stalwarts Salah and Robertson struggle to shake off injuries and don't even get started on what team Pep will pick. It's good to be back.
We've gone for a format change too. Rather than just opting for five picks, I've expanded it to the full 11. There is minimal thought given to the budget and this is merely a wishlist of who I would pick if I was starting with a blank slate this week. It's a tricky fixture list this week so it seems a good week to try it out. As ever, comments are welcome.
Clean sheets have been at a premium in general this season but save points are on the rise. For that reason, Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m) gets the nod in goal.
Having collected bonus points in each of his last three matches as well as three clean sheets in four, Ramsdale represents value for money but also a fair chance of a points return as Bournemouth welcome Wolves. It's a bold move considering Wolves have only failed to score once this season but with Jimenez having been away representing Mexico, it could be Bournemouth's chance to profit.
