Man City started their season with 2 goals away at Brighton and will expect more of the same in their away games in the next 4 gameweeks against Bournemouth and Watford, neither of whom have a strong defence even at home. City's home matches against Everton and Liverpool will be far tougher prospects, but even so we expect 3-4 goals in those games too.
Liverpool enjoy 3 home matches in the next 4 gameweeks including potentially profitable ties against Palace (gw 2) and Burnley (gw 5). The other home match is against Arsenal which will be a lot tougher and we expect even less when the Reds take a trip to Man City in gameweek 4.
Despite Tottenham having the third worst fixtures in the next 4 gameweeks (including the visit of Chelsea in gameweek 2 and a tricky trip to Everton in gameweek 4) we predict they will still be the third highest goal-scorers mainly thanks to Home ties against Burnley (gw 3) and Swansea (gw 5).
The following 3 teams are predicted to score the most goals in the next 4 Fantasy Premier League gameweeks:
After a surprise 0-3 away victory in gameweek 1, Huddersfield now have 3 home fixtures in the next 4 gameweeks and have the most appealing fixtures as a result. Even so it may not be a good idea to put too much stock in their defence because, despite having good fixtures they are still only expected to score 4-5 goals in the 4 games.
It is a similar story for Southampton who have win-able home matches against West Ham & Watford and appealing away fixtures at Huddersfield and Palace. But considering their recent poor showing in front of goal we still only expect about 5 goals over the 4 matches.
Man United are an interesting prospect for the coming weeks: matches away at Swansea and at home to Leicester in particular could yield many goals. Their attacking stock is on the rise after their summer signings, Lukaku in particular, so it is worth having at least one attacking option from Man United.
The following 3 teams have the best fixtures for scoring goals in the next 4 Fantasy Premier League gameweeks:
Everton have such a tough run of fixtures ahead of them (mci, che, TOT, mun) that we predict they will score less than half the goals they would on average: maybe only 3 goals rather than 6-7. Steer well clear of Rooney et al for the next few weeks.
Brighton's strikers are not expect to trouble the scorers too much this season and even less so over the next 4 gameweeks when they have to endure 3 matches away from home.
