The combined elite 11 managers boast an impressive ranked history. Welcome back to the watch list. This is a weekly series where we take a look at three players who become future transfer targets after impressing over the weekend.
Replacing Leon Bailey is likely to be a priority ahead of Gameweek 3 after he was dropped to the bench for Aston Villa's 2-1 win over Everton, but the question is whether to replace him directly with a similarly priced midfielder, or instead use two transfers to downgrade Bayley and shift more funds into a defender or forward.
With a million in the bank, one player who's caught my eye as a possible direct replacement for Bayley is Pascal Gross. Playing just off of Danny Welbeck in a fairly central attacking role, the German created a match-leading total of four chances against Newcastle. No player took as many as his nine corners or completed as many as his 19 final third passes.
He was also the closest player to scoring from either side, racking up a 0.45 expected goal figure from a single big chance missed. He has already opened his scoring account for the season with a brace against Man United. Gross ranks top amongst FPL midfielders for non-penalty xgi or expected goal involvements with his figure of 1.89, only trailing Gabrielle J Zeus across all positions.
Bryton are ranked third best for non-penalty expected goals per game this season, only trailing Liverpool and Arsenal, and have a very kind spell of fixtures over the next six game weeks, including ties with Leeds. Fulham, and Bournemouth. Brentford ran riot in a four-nil win over Manchester United.
Brian and Bomo rounded off a stunning first half performance with a cool finish from Ivan Tony's pass following a rapid counter attack. No teammate took as many shots as the Frenchman's two in open play, while his 0.5 expected goals figure for the match was only bettered by Ben Mee with 0.64. Over both game weeks so far, Tony and Mboro are tied with three shots in the box apiece and have comparable expected goal figures of 0.7 and 0.66.
Tony offered much more creatively with six attempted assists compared to when Bombos won with three. In fact, only Mitrovic. Jesus, and Harland have a better expected goal involvement figure this season than the Brentford number nine, but the one million saving on Mbobo means he's more affordable as a potential upgrade for Sam Greenwood using Leon Baily as the make weight along with an extra million in the back, like Brighton.
The Bees are about to embark on a fantastic run of fixtures, including Fulham, Everton, and Leeds in the next four games. The heated London derby between Chelsea and Spurs saw Ivan Perisic come off the bench to set up Harry Kane for a 96-minute equalizer. The experienced Croatian took set pieces from both sides, fashioning two attempted assists in his 11-minute cameo.
No teammate attempted as many as his five crosses during the match. The 33-year old is working his way back to full fitness after picking up a knock at the end of last season, and Antonio Conte reminded us after the game that there's still much more to come from him, saying that he's not the player he knows but that he hopes to recover quickly.
Ryan Cesenion took his chance to impress against Southampton on the opening weekend, but he had a tough afternoon against Chelsea, which could help open the door for Perisic to make his first start. It's certainly a big gamble as it stands, but the upside is clear with a combined four goal involvements provided by Spurs wing backs in the opening two game weeks and meetings with wolves.
