Fantasy EPL Gameweek 10 Perfect XI

So, what is Perfect XI? Similar to Official Fantasy Premier League game, all managers have full access to the entire player pool each week, meaning multiple teams within the league could be completely identical. The main departures from OFPL are the Fantrax Default Scoring, unlimited transfers each week, no budget/salary cap, and live lineup changes available. This means that each week you can select a dream team of Fantrax assets who you think will score the most points on a given gameweek, and have the added bonus of being able to see the real life lineups before your players lock in. Magic.


Check out our Perfect XI tips below. These are our recommendations for the best eleven players this weekend! Picks are now accompanied by our weekly projections, which our Inner Circle members can exclusively access.


GK: Ederson

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: ~8.1 (GK projections coming soon)

The Thought: I'm chasing a clean sheet once again this week, but its nearly the best possible situation for it. City have a 56% chance of keeping a cleanie this week vs Palace. Not a lot of saves to be made likely, but also more than 1 goal for Palace would be highly unexpected. Pivot: Edouard Mendy, Alisson

DEF: Trent Alexander Arnold

Team: Liverpool

Opponent: Brighton (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 15.4

The Thought: Once again: the best scoring fantasy defender in the game, averaging an impressive 20 points a game, don't overthink this one. This week he has a 52% chance of keeping a clean sheet, 41% chance of assisting, and 14% chance of scoring. Plug Trent into your lineup and let the points flow in, regardless of how they come Pivot: Andrew Robertson, Konstantinos Tsimikas


DEF: Joao Cancelo

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 15.3

The Thought: Like the aforementioned Liverpool RB, its hard to bench Cancelo, and there's really no reason to do so this week in a good home matchup. He scores phenomenally well offensively, and has a 56% chance of keeping a clean sheet this week vs. Palace. Pivot: Oleksandr Zinchenko

DEF: Reece James

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: Newcastle (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.6

The Thought: This defensive section just writes itself at this point. Trent, Cancelo, and pick a Chelsea wing back. This week I'm going with Reece first as I think he's a bit better per start and Newcastle is worse defensively down the left (as the projections demonstrate). 51% chance of a clean sheet, around 35% of a goal or assist. Pivot: Ben Chilwell/Marcos Alonso


DEF: Ben Chilwell

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: Newcastle (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 13.6

The Thought: But wait! There's a change from our normal 3-4-3, and we've pivoted to 4 in the back. To complete the mini Chelsea-stack, we're going to also go with the left sided wing back as well in Chilwell (or Alonso if he starts). He's scored 24, 23, and 22 in his last 3 starts and this is Newcastle. This might just be the week where 4 defenders is optimal. Pivot: Cesar Azpilicueta/Rudiger


MID: Kevin De Bruyne

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 17.5

The Thought: You know the drill by now. If KDB plays, you start him. If he doesn't you can easily pivot to another high upside City midfielder. He may be still coming into form, and other City midfielders have outshone him a bit in recent weeks, but he's still KDB, one of the best midfielders in the world, and has the highest projection of any player this week. Against Crystal Palace, he has a 41% chance of scoring and a 38% chance of assisting. You just can't avoid those numbers.

Pivot: Ilkay Gundogan/Bernardo Silva

MID: Phil Foden

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 15.2

The Thought: Another City mid, Phil Foden ought to be in your Perfect XI this weekend. The Englishman has been performing incredibly well since returning to full fitness, and unlike de Bruyne, he did not start during the midweek, so should be fresh for a potential thrashing vs Palace. Foden has a 45% chance of scoring and 32% of assisting and fading him might be a real mistake when he's involved in multiple goals.

Pivot: Jack Grealish/Gabriel Jesus


MID: Raphinha

Team: Leeds

Opponent: Norwich City (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 17.0

The Thought: Despite his injury issues, the Brazilian winger for Leeds has been on a tear lately, scoring 18+ fantasy points in 3 of his last 4 games. This week he plays Norwich away in a game Leeds will be gunning for goals. Against the side that just conceded 7 to City, there should be plenty of offense for the taking. Raphinha has a 60% chance of scoring or assisting and will be sure to get you plenty of ghost points regardless of his attacking returns, from set pieces, dribbles, and created chances. This is one of the best weeks to play Raphinha so don't miss it. Pivot: Rodrigo

MID: Mason Mount

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: Newcastle (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 16.2

The Thought: We're picking the MVP of last week again: Mason Mount. After scoring nearly 50 points vs Norwich, why not play him in a similarly appealing matchup vs Newcastle? In a game vs one of the worst teams in the league, having a piece of their attack seems necessary in Perfect XI if they do manage to put up multiple goals again. Mount will be the primary creative force outside of the fullbacks and has a 66% chance of getting an attacking return according to the oddsmakers. Pivot: Callum Hudson-Odoi


MID: Bruno Fernandes

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Tottenham (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.5

The Thought: Another formation difference. We're going with a 4-5-1 this week, with few forward options we feel truly good about. After fading him last week vs Liverpool, we're back to picking Bruno, this time against Nuno's struggling Spurs side. After getting subbed early last week and being generally ineffective vs Klopp's superior side, Bruno will be out to prove a point. He has a 55% chance of getting an attacking return and a much higher chance of getting many ghost points. Pivot: Jadon Sancho/Marcus Rashford


FWD: Mohamad Salah

Team: Liverpool

Opponent: Brighton (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.4

The Thought: Salah is the best player in the Premier League and the highest scoring player in Fantrax by 78 points! Even against a solid Brighton side, you simply have to pick him. He still has a 59% chance of scoring (highest of the week) and a 39% chance of assisting. Just do it. Pivot: Ivan Toney
