Preview of FPL New Signings
The transfer window has finally ended and what a window it was.
There were many great signings in the Premier League as well as other leagues.
The biggest news for all FPL managers was the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo for Manchester United. We will be covering some of new signings to the Premier League, including a handful who had played in England before.
Preview of FPL New Signings
Bryan Gil (£5.9 | SPU | MID)
Bruan Gil is one of the young prodigies to look for this season.
Spurs have got a really good forward in him and with Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane being in the team, he will be getting my chances to score and assist goals this season.
He’s listed as a midfielder but throughout his career in La Liga, he has effectively played on both wings.
Spurs have also got some good fixtures till GW8 and boosting Gil’s appeal.
Last season, his xG+A/90 is 0.33 and he takes an average of 1.69 Shots per 90min.
Saúl Ñíguez (£5.5 | CHE | MID)
Saul is well known to FPL managers as a combative Atletico Madrid midfielder.
He mostly plays as a central or defensive midfielder and that’s the reason for him not getting much goal involvements.
It will be interesting to see how he will fit into the Chelsea plan as the Blues already have Jorginho and Kante in similar positions.
From a career perspective, Saul has scored 53 and assisted 22 times in 447 appearances. His disciplinary record however, is worth noting – he averages 10 bookings per season in his career.
Jadon Sancho (£9.2 | MUN | MID)
Sancho was one of the most talked about young players in England.
He has performed exceptionally well with Borussia Dortmund and was signed by Manchester United earlier this summer.
The expectations for him has been quite high but he hasn’t performed in the first 3 games but as they always say, the season is a marathon, not a sprint.
Last season, his statistics for Dortmund looked stunning – 2.25 Sh/90 with an average xG/90 of 0.32 and xA/90 of 0.36.
With the attacking talent around him, he is likely to deliver attacking returns as long as he starts to play regularly.
He’s currently owned by just 4.2% and can be a really good differential if you’re planning to use your wildcard this GW.
Romelu Lukaku (£11.5 | CHE | FWD)
Lukaku has already played in Premier League earlier for 4 other clubs (including Chelsea) before his current arrival from Inter Milan. He already has 114 Premier League goals from his 254 appearances.
At 28, he is now widely regarded as one of the most potent center forward in the world. His ability to hold up play and literally bully defenders make him very easy on the eye.
In his 36 appearances for Inter Milan last season, he scored 24 and assisted 11 goals with 3.03 Sh/90. He’s got an xG/90 of 0.73 and an xA/90 of 0.29 which means 1.02 GI/90 which roughly translates to at least a goal involvement per game.
Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5 | MUN | FWD)
CR7 will be back playing for Manchester United at the Old Trafford, a move that excites every United fan and every FPL manager.
For Juventus last season, his xG/90 of 0.98 and xA/90 of 0.22 is one of the best on record.
Throughout his very illustrious career, he has 674 goals and 229 assists in 895 appearances, translating to “super-human”.
