Current Top Ten Most Popular FPL Players
The 2020/21 FPL season has barely started and FPL managers are already busy setting their GW01 squad. Here we look at the current top ten most popular FPL players and make an early assessment.
Kevin De Bruyne (MCI | MID | 11.5) – TSB 62.6%
Last season’s top scoring FPL player is the current most popular in the game. nearly two-thirds of the FPL managers have selected the City midfielder whose price is surprisingly not the most expensive at 11.5.
Verdict: MUST BUY
Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV | DEF | 7.5) – TSB 56.2%
FPL’s most expensive defender is the second most popular in the game at this point. He is also the only defender in the current top ten list.
Bruno Fernandes (MNU | MID | 10.5) – TSB 42.6%
Fernandes have ticked most of FPL managers’ boxes since his arrival in the Premier League and is currently a popular choice with FPL managers.
Timor Werner (CHE | FWD | 9.5) – TSB 36.7%
Chelsea’s new acquisition is hugely popular among the managers, owned by more than one-third of the game
Verdict: NOT NOW. New signings may take some time to be up to speed in the Premier League so we recommend waiting before committing on Werner.
Nick Pope (BUR | GK | 5.5) – TSB 32.8%
Burnley’s GK has seen an increase in price but also an increase interest in ownership. It is clear that FPL managers are preferring him over more pricey choices like Alisson and Ederson.
Verdict: WAIT AND SEE. Pope enjoyed a great season last term but at times, middle-tier teams may find it hard to replicate back to back successes.
Anthony Martial (MNU | FWD | 9.0) – TSB 29.0%
The United front man had a positional change over the “summer” and there has been renewed interest.
Verdict: BUY. Martial’s goal return last term is only great. United may yet strengthen but it looks like Martial will continue to lead the line.
Aleksandar Mitrović (FUL | FWD | 6.0) – TSB 28.6%
Mitrovic is the only player from a promoted team to be on the current top ten. The Serb is no stranger to FPL, he played a full season with Fulham in 2018/19 and scored 11 goals. His price point is palatable for many who picked him as a 2nd or 3rd forward
Verdict: BUY. At this price, Mitrovic is a good purchase, No matter how Fulham do, we expect Mitrovic to score at least 10 goals next season. Could be the next Danny Ings.
Matt Ryan (BHA | GK | 4.5) – TSB 27.7%
Ryan is the second most popular GK on this list.
Verdict: MAYBE. At 4.5, he looks like a good choice as he is a sure starter but it is difficult to predict how Brighton will start their season.
Mo Salah (LIV | MID | 12.0) – TSB 26.1%
The entourage of Salah fans in FPL is not deterred by the 12.0.
Verdict: MAYBE. Salah will score a lot of goals but whether to spend 12% of our team’s budget on him will depend on who else we will like in our 15.
PE Aubameyang (ARS | MID | 12.0) – TSB 23.7%
Aubameyang is another player to have undergone a positional change.
Verdict: MAYBE. Very much like Salah, depends on how we will shape the team.
Oh, if you have not decided on a team name yet, we have a killer list of top FPL team names for you to choose from.
