The world once again prepares itself for another wave of COVID-19. The majority of games in Germany and Spain are being played behind closed doors. Tottenham Hotspur has faced a COVID outbreak in their camp as the majority of the first team players turned out to be COVID positive. Their game against Rennes was called off even after the French side protests.

With such a backdrop, Premier League returns as the UEFA Champions League group stage concluded in the midweek. Such games usually cause a lot of speculation regarding the squad selection at the weekend. The squad rotation allows the managers to keep players fresh and safe from injuries. With most of the top six featured in the European nights, selecting a team that will feature at the weekend becomes a tough ask for the managers. Even a single player can cause a major downfall in terms of the overall ranking. Here are the top 3 FPL picks for the upcoming game week.

Top Picks

1) Bernardo Silva Manchester City vs Wolves

Price: 7.6m

Position: Midfield

Ownership: 24.1%

After an underwhelming season that was majorly disrupted by the COVID outbreak, Bernardo Silva is back in his groove. His dazzling feet, the ability to quick interplay differentiate him from other creative mid-fielders. His work rate on and off the ball allows him to easily slot in even in the top European teams. His performance earned him three consecutive Etihad Player of the Month which makes him the first player in the history of Manchester City. He has scored five goals in his last five Premier League games. With the relentless attacking threat, Manchester City currently holds Bernardo Silva as the first name who is expected to appear on the score sheet. 


2) Jamie Vardy Leicester City vs Newcastle United

Price: 10.7m

Position: Striker

Ownership: 26.1%

Jamie Vardy has aged like a fine wine. The veteran Englishman currently holds the second position with 9 goals in 15 appearances. Leicester will host the Magpies on Sunday. Newcastle is still adapting to their new life under Eddie Howe. Leicester and Newcastle have leaked goals throughout this season. For Leicester, European football has significantly increased the fatigue level among the players. Their majority of defenders are sidelined with long term injuries. On the other hand, Newcastle is still recovering from the damage due to ownership as well as management reasons. Due to this, a major hole is left in the backline of both teams. Strikers will look forward to getting up on the scoresheet. Jamie Vardy with his pace and natural striking instincts is the most likely of all to score goals.   


3) Emmanuel Dennis

Price: 5.7m

Position: Striker

Ownership: 25.8%

The Nigerian Striker has taken the Premier League by storm. Dennis currently stands as the second-highest points earner in the forward category. With 6 goals and 5 assists in 14 Premier League games the young striker certainly has caught the eye of many teams. With Brentford and Burnley in the next two games, Emanuel Dennis could prove to be a key transfer before the game week 16 commences. His ability to score and provide assists certainly allows him to gain more points. Also, his cheap price tag is an eye-catcher for those who currently struggle to bring in the likes of Salah, Trent Arnold or Cancelo. With Dennis in the squad, a manager can look further to utilise the space created by him.
