The fixtures keep coming thick and fast in October as game week 10 rolls on after midweek European exertions for those involved. 

A hat-trick of home hat-tricks means most Fantasy Premier League teams are essentially Erling Haaland and 10 others as the Manchester City man comes into the game against clean sheet-less Southampton on the back of three goals and two assists in game week nine.

The FootballCastle promises to save the stress of talking about the Norwegian except you are one of the remaining 17.8% of managers who choose to be different. 

Here, you will find the best tips for Game Week 10 ahead of the deadline on Saturday, October 8 at 13:30 BST.

David Raya (£4.5m) 

The Brentford shot-stopper looks good ahead of a good run of fixtures as he currently ranks third for saves made.

Brentford concede many shots from outside the box which invariably works in Raya’s favour in terms of save points.

Vicente Guaita (£4.5m) 

Crystal Palace’s net-minder could offer strong value against Leeds United who have failed to score in two of their last four games and will be without the suspended Luis Sinisterra in GW10.

At just £4.5m, Guaita could prove an understated bargain. 


Reece James (£6.0m) 

The wing-back offers a strong pull ahead of facing Wolves after combining a goal and an assist with a clean sheet in the resounding 3-0 win over AC Milan in midweek.

GW10 wields the likelihood of James recreating that haul against Wolves who have the worst attack for goals scored this season (three). Chelsea have very favourable fixtures until the FIFA World Cup and James’ multiple routes to returns offers huge appeal.  

Kieran Trippier (£5.5m)

Having combined a goal and an assist with four clean sheets, Trippier has blanked just twice in his eight appearances this season.

Brentford have failed to score in their last two matches, raising the England international’s prospects for a big haul in GW10.

Joao Cancelo (£7.2m) 

Cancelo is the most popular FPL defender so far with 51.7% ownership having registered two double-figure hauls in his four home fixtures. 

Man City next host Southampton and the full-back will be looking forward to doing some damage in the attack. 


Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) 

The 29-year-old has scored three goals for 21 FPL points in his last three home games and the hosting of Leeds in GW10 gives the Crystal Palace winger another chance to add to his good form this season as he faces a good run of upcoming fixtures.

Leandro Trossard (£6.7m)

The Belgian scored 20 points with his hat-trick at Liverpool to take him to the second-highest among midfielders, a single point behind Kevin De Bruyne.

Yet, Trossard is still owned by a paltry 10.3% of managers which adds differential value to your squad as well as a reasonably-priced attacker in form. 

James Maddison (£8.1m) 

Leicester City’s shining light has registered three goals, an assist and 25 points from his last two outings and has only blanked only twice in his seven matches this season.

Maddison got 18 points in the 4-0 win against Nottingham Forest and is currently one of the best mid-priced midfielders in the game. The Englishman next faces Bournemouth who have conceded 19 goals after eight games.

Gareth Southgate better watch this.

Phil Foden (£8.1m) 

The youngster produced a 19-point haul as he notched his first Man City hat-trick in the derby in game week 9.

Foden now has four goals and two assists in his last five games having registered 12 shots inside the box over the last six matches. The attacking midfielder has started each of City’s last six league matches to prove his importance at the moment.

Foden will be delighted to be facing Southampton who are the only side yet to register a Premier League clean sheet this season. 

Jarrod Bowen (£8.1m)

Bowen finally got off the mark this season with a goal and assist in GW9 and will be looking to take on Fulham who have conceded eight times in their last three games. 

The West Ham man is a sure starter as the Londoners look for a third consecutive win for the first time this season. 


Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (£9.0m)

The striker has started promisingly under Graham Potter’s management with consecutive goals against Crystal Palace and AC Milan. 

Aubameyang retains only 2.1% ownership which could be key given he is up against Wolves, Aston Villa and Brentford in the next three GWs. The Gabonese is known for his early scoring streak at a new club and getting him right now could prove an inspired move. 

Callum Wilson (£7.2m) 

The Newcastle marksman scored in three of his four games this season despite a stop-start campaign with injuries. 

GW10 opponents Brentford have only one clean sheet in their last 20 away matches, and Wilson has netted in both his home appearances in 2022-23. 

Will lightning strike thrice?

Harry Kane (£11.4m)

The England captain has a goal involvement in each of the last seven games and has registered 12 shots on target, 6 big chances and 5.55 expected goal involvement (xGI) over the last six matches. 

Brighton’s thrilling 3-3 draw in Roberto De Zerbi’s managerial debut against Liverpool showed they would attack a lot, leaving gaps for Kane to pounce.
