Fulham vs Liverpool
West Ham vs Manchester City
Tottenham vs Southampton
Bournemouth vs Aston Villa
Chelsea vs Everton
Players in focus:
First things first, from precedent, I think most of us have Mohammad Salah nailed on in our teams. Salah will play against promoted Fulham whose manager Scott Parker recently lamented about the morbid condition of his team’s defence. You can bet on Salah to be involved in the action one way or the other. Liverpool’s form, especially after they defeated Manchester City, has appealed to a lot of fantasy premier league players. It is expected that there will be a lot of fantasy managers who will look to fulfil their quota of 3 Liverpool players in their teams. Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson or Luis Diaz seem to be the popular choices. With Mane gone, Diaz can be instrumental to the magnificent Liverpool attack. Alisson patrols a goal with a solid backline.
You’d be missing out if you don’t include Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus who is the most selected player in this year’s FPL. With the form he has shown in pre-season, he is unputdownable. Arsenal has a few other decent options as well including Ben White for 4.5 and Bukayo Saka for 8 million. Manchester City is the defending champions and new boy Erling Haaland is a common name in this season’s teams. Joao Cancelo is another player that you can include. He’s a premium option in defence like Alexander-Arnold. Kevin De Bruyne can be a great midfield pick as in Riyad Mahrez.
Tottenham is a team to watch this season under the guidance of Antonio Conte. Son and Kane are obvious options but it might be wise to invest in Tottenham’s fullbacks as well. Perisic, Royale, or Sessegnon, it remains to be seen who is getting the starting role. Villa’s Leon Bailey can be a great budget option while Wolves’ fullbacks are also tempting options.

Chelsea’s Mendy can be a cheaper alternative for a decent keeper as is Danny Ward, who looks set to be getting a playing role at Leicester.
Fulham’s Andreas and Nottingham Forest’s Neco Williams are the most popular bench fillers as they are set to start for their respective teams despite being such affordable options.
Summary for Gameweek 1 fantasy premier league tips:
The following are the Gameweek 1 fantasy premier league tips:
Attack, Jesus, Kane, and Haaland seem to be popular choices but it’s wise to only go for two among those three to maintain balance. If you want to go all out attack, you might look to select all of them.
Midfield: Salah, Diaz, Son, De Bruyne are very popular but their price is higher. Among the budget options, Martinelli, Bailey, and Neto are popular options.
Defence: Alexander-Arnold, Cancelo, Reece James are popular choices. Ben White looks like a decent budget option. Cucurella, once his transfer fiasco comes to an end, might also be a good option.
Salah has a record of scoring on Gameweek 1 consistently and it’d be a no-brainer to pick him as your skipper. However, if you are looking for differential options, Kane, Son, Jesus, and Haaland is also attractive.
