FPL Gameweek 2: Analysis of the key underlying statistics

Our Big Numbers piece returns for the new season as we take a look at the vast array of data available in our Members’ Area and present the eye-catching statistics that may be of interest.

We’re only one Gameweek into 2020/21, of course, and these articles will likely be of more use when we have a bigger data pool to draw from.

Still, there was enough of interest to warrant a cursory look at the Opta numbers from the weekend.

We’ve run down the stand-out figures in every position, as well as looking at the strengths and weaknesses of various teams to assess which Fantasy Premier League assets could shine in Gameweek 2.

With this feature using stats from our Premium Members Area, only subscribers can read on.

And yes, you can still – despite the repeated warnings – get the pre-season annual subscription price of £17.50 by signing up today.

    Had money itb to do Ings to Martial this week. Worth taking a hit to do the following even tho I'll captain Aubameyang.

    Ings & Salah 》Bruno & Martial (-4)

    For GW2

    Should I go Werner -> Martial or should I save?

    Couple of changes I am thinking about in the future

    ASM -> Grealish (Don't have funds currently)
    Ings -> Jimenez( Next week)

      Personally I would save. Werner looks sharp and have WBA after the Liverpool game.

    What do you reckon?
    A) DCL and Robertson (have Doucouré and Digne as well)
    B) Wilson and Trent

    I'm really tempted to do Alli to Grealish. However it would be for a hit if I did it this week, so do you reckon I'm best to hold for now?
