A huge weekend of FPL action is ahead of us with the top three all facing sides struggling in the lower reaches of the Premier League table.

Picking through the Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City stars will be a big task for managers, aware that a huge haul of points could be their prize.

With the deadline at 11am BST on Saturday, October 30, there is still plenty of time to work out how best to line up your XI.

There is also a wealth of differential talent on offer with the likes of Leeds, Brentford and Everton hoping to cash in against teams further down the table.

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

Ivan Toney | Brentford | £6.6m

All three of the striker’s goals this season have come away from home and Burnley, yet to win in the Premier League, are next up for the Bees. What’s more, Toney has also already picked up a pair of assists, and has multiple routes to points.

Ibrahima Konate | Liverpool | £5.1m

Brighton have been rather good so far but a trip to Liverpool, who are on red-hot form, still puts them as massive underdogs. Rested in midweek after playing in the win over Manchester United, Konate has relatively few owners and appears set for a run in the XI.

Demarai Gray | Everton | £5.8m

It may look like madness backing the Toffees after last weekend’s 5-2 thumping at the hands of Watford, but Rafa Benitez’s side will attempt to react versus Wolves. Their hosts are on a good little run yet are one in six against Everton at home in the league and one in ten at home on Mondays in the league.

Gabriel Jesus | Manchester City | £8.6m

The dreaded Pep rotation can strike at any time but the Brazilian’s rest from Carabao Cup duty means he is set to start at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday. Players may be flocking to Phil Foden after his heroics against Brighton, yet Jesus has three goals and six assists in his last nine league starts.

Aymeric Laporte | Manchester City | £5.5m

By the same measure, Laporte missed the West Ham defeat and Palace’s record of one win and two draws in 12 league meetings with City makes a very good case for packing your team with City stars. The cheapest first-choice defender is Laporte, with more points-per-minute than Ruben Dias or Joao Cancelo.

Joshua King | Watford | £5.6m

Watford’s stunning turnaround at Everton may not happen every week but out-of-sorts Southampton are next up, with Emmanuel Denis suspended for the Vicarage Road meeting. That should allow King to lead the line and build on his hat-trick.

Nathan Redmond | Southampton | £5.9m

With an assist in each of his last two matches, the winger is finding form and will be part of a Saints line-up desperate to push up the table against Watford. In Southampton’s favour is a run of seven unbeaten in the league at Vicarage Road.

Son Heung-min | Tottenham | £10.2m

Arguably a game you shouldn’t touch with a ten-foot barge pole, Tottenham versus Manchester United does at least see the Red Devils’ horrendous defence roll into town. The best placed to take advantage is Son, who has four goals in two games against Saturday’s opposition.

Joe Gelhardt | Leeds | £4.5m

As a real left-field choice, the young Leeds striker could be the breakout star of the weekend having impressed off the bench versus Wolves last time out. With Norwich away up next and Marcelo Bielsa never afraid to trust in youth, a first start could be on the cards.

Mason Mount | Chelsea | £7.5m

Perhaps the most impressive player of gameweek nine, Mount will surely start against Newcastle on Saturday after whacking a hat-trick past Norwich. Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner’s injuries should maintain his starring role with the Toon vulnerable having conceded the most home goals in the top-flight since the start of last season.
