  • However, if you have many injuries in your FPL team, it is okay to pull the wildcard trigger now
  • Key players to own right now: Haaland, Cancelo, Maddison, James, Trippier
  • Transfer targets for GW10: Zaha, Maddison, James
  • Gameweek 10 differentials: Rodrigo – back from injury, had 3 shots against Aston Villa, Wilson –  back from injury and back on the scoresheet. Potential Mitrovič or Isak replacement in our FPL teams.
