FPL managers across the world will be seeking to head into the season’s first international break on a high as a busy weekend of Premier League action kicks off today.

West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool are among the sides to have delivered some high-performing assets so far, while there are further complications with the transfer window still open and plenty of big signings still finding their feet at their new clubs.

With no Friday night game this week, you were given an extra nights’ sleep to worry about your transfers, squad picks, captains and potential differentials before the deadline hits at 11am BST today - Saturday, August 27.

Here are some of the key players you should be keeping an eye on this weekend...

Goalkeepers

Hugo Lloris | £5m | Tottenham

Spurs are yet to concede a goal in the league under Nuno Espirito Santo and Lloris is the top-scoring goalkeeper in the game so far this season, having picked up maximum bonus points to go with his two clean sheets.

Defenders

Tino Livramento | £4.1m | Southampton

The teenager has been a surprise starter for Saints and has posed significant attacking threat in their opening two fixtures, despite not registering any returns so far.

Daniel Amartey | £4.1m | Leicester

Like Livramento, Amartey makes the list because of his value, particularly as many managers may be looking for a similarly-priced replacement for early season favourite Kostas Tsimikas, with Andy Robertson expected to return to the Liverpool team.

Vladimir Coufal | £5.0m | West Ham

The Czech fantasy favourite has picked up where he left off last season and notched an assist in the win over Leicester on Monday night, where he was unlucky not to earn a clean sheet in a dominant Hammers performance.

Midfielders

Said Benrahma | £6.3m | West Ham

Plenty of managers gambled on the Algerian after his fine form in preseason and he has not disappointed, with two goals and two assists in his first two matches. The good news is that despite a price hike, he remains more than value for money if he can keep up that form.

Raphinha | £6.5m | Leeds

Speaking of value for money, many FPL players were expecting the Brazilian to be priced a little higher this season. A tricky start for Leeds put many off the winger but with some favourable fixtures to come over the next two months, now could be the time to get him in.

Jack Grealish | £8.0m | Man City

The big summer signing opened his City account in slightly fortuitous fashion against Norwich but that could prove the start of a run. He is a reasonably-priced way into the City midfield in comparison with some of his teammates.

Forwards

Danny Ings | £8.1m | Aston Villa

Ings has scored in each of his opening two games following his summer move from Southampton and now faces newly-promoted Brentford, though the Bees are yet to concede. The Englishman may be a short term option only, though, because Villa face a daunting run of fixtures after the international break.

Michail Antonio | £7.8m | West Ham

Antonio has made such a blistering start to the season that he has quickly become a must-own asset and the Hammers’ upcoming fixtures look enticing.

Harry Kane | £12.3m | Tottenham

This weekend’s fixture may come too soon for Kane to make his first Premier League start of the season, but after his two goals in Europe in midweek don’t bet against him having an impact off the bench. Plus, his price has fallen over the first two weeks but will surely rise again when he is fully-fit after the internationals.
