West Ham are top of the table! Okay, we may only be two games into the Premier League season. But the Hammers are flying.

Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma have pleased plenty of FPL managers already this term. Can they maintain their red-hot form?

Here is this weekend’s Premier League schedule.

• Manchester City vs. Arsenal

• Newcastle vs. Southampton

• Brighton vs Everton

• Norwich vs. Leicester

• Aston Villa vs. Brentford

• Liverpool vs. Chelsea

• Burnley vs. Leeds

• Tottenham vs. Watford

• Wolves vs. Manchester United

Manchester City and Arsenal kick off Gameweek 3 on Saturday afternoon, before Liverpool and Chelsea clash later that day.

On Sunday, Tottenham will aim to extend their 100% record against Watford, while winless Wolves host Manchester United.

Let’s take a look at the top FPL picks for Gameweek 3.


Four goalkeepers have kept two clean sheets in their opening two matches this season – Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), David Raya (Brentford), Edouard Mendy (Chelsea) and Alisson (Liverpool).

Arsenal have yet to score this term, meaning Ederson (Manchester City) will be confident of achieving a shutout against the Gunners this weekend.

Norwich, Wolves, and Crystal Palace have also failed to get off the mark this season. They face Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester), David De Gea (Manchester United) and Lukasz Fabianski (West Ham), respectively.


Marcos Alonso (Chelsea) is the highest-scoring defender in the game right now, having picked up 21 points across the first two gameweeks.

With two clean sheets, one goal and one assist to his name already, Reece James (Chelsea) has also enjoyed an excellent start to the new campaign.

If you’re looking for a differential defender pick this weekend, Ethan Pinnock (Brentford), Shane Duffy (Brighton) and Eric Dier (Tottenham) are all worth considering.


Said Benrahma (West Ham) has chalked up two goals and two assists across the opening two gameweeks, making himself the highest-scoring FPL midfielder.

Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United) has netted three goals already, while teammate Paul Pogba (Manchester City) is averaging a whopping 2.5 assists per game this season.

Elsewhere, Sergi Canos (Brentford), Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Demarai Gray (Everton) have started the campaign strongly.


Inevitably, Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea) scored on his second debut for the Blues. Although he is priced at £11.5m, he looks set to bag a ton of goals this season.

With three goals and two assists under his belt, Michail Antonio (West Ham) has picked up 14 points more than the next best forward – Danny Ings (Aston Villa).

Toffees duo Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) and Richarlison (Everton) are in good form, too, as does Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City).
