Bookies favor Wolves to keep a clean sheet against Fulham with higher than 50 percent probability. That is huge, because we rarely see probability of a clean sheet higher than 50 percent.

So that makes likes of Saiss and Boly (and perhaps their new signing Nelson Semedo) very attractive picks for GW4. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and man City are other stand out options with very high probability of a clean sheet.

On the other hand defenders from Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Leeds are not expected to do well, so perhaps you should bench them in your FPL squad if you can.
