bet365 Fantasy Gameweek 7 Suggested Picks:

The deadline for team selection for Gameweek 7 is at 12:30 on Saturday 30th September, coinciding with the kick-off time for Aston Villa v Brighton.

Here are our suggested picks to bring in the points in Gameweek 7, in a 4-4-2 formation within the allocated 100M budget:

Bernd Leno (Fulham - 4.5M) 

Having already accumulated 33.5 fantasy points so far this season, Bernd Leno is the top points-scoring goalkeeper in the game, and has arguably been Fulham's star man at the start of this Premier League campaign.

Leno will be keen to maintain his early season form when coming up against a Chelsea side who have failed to score in three Premier League games.

Kieran Trippier (Newcastle - 6.8M)

After an unbelievable weekend in which Newcastle thrashed Sheffield United 8-0, Kieran Trippier looks an obvious pick for Gameweek 7.

Registering three assists for the Magpies in the second biggest away win in Premier League history in Gameweek 6, Trippier recorded an incredible 15.3 points.

Sven Botman (Newcastle - 5.5M)

Another Newcastle player to keep your eye on is Sven Botman, whose fantasy points total of 26.6 is the highest amongst the Magpies' defence so far this season.

Eddie Howe’s men will be looking to continue their recent momentum when they host Burnley, with Vincent Kompany's side having only registered four goals in the Premier League so far in this campaign.

Manuel Akanji (Man City - 5.5M)

An away fixture against Wolves in Gameweek 7 provides an unstoppable Manchester City with a perfect opportunity to continue their current league domination

With the best goal difference in the league, the inclusion of a Manchester City defender seems optimal in Gameweek 7, with Swiss international Manuel Akanji also posing a goal threat from set pieces.

James Tarkowski (Everton - 4.4M)

Priced at just 4.4M and selected by only 1.74% of fantasy managers, Everton's James Tarkowski could be a strong differential heading into Gameweek 7.

Following a shock 3-1 win against Brenford away, the Toffees are favourites for their upcoming fixture against Luton Town at home. 

Taking into consideration his 14 points accumulated in Gameweek 6, transferring in Tarkowski could be a shrewd move this week.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool - 12.1M)

Unbeaten and sat second in the Premier League table, Liverpool look a much stronger force than last term, with the arrival of Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister giving the team more thrust and creativity in midfield. 

Although the Reds will be facing an in-form Tottenham side, Mo Salah appears an important inclusion considering his recent form - with seven goal contributions in the first six weeks of the season. 

Jarrod Bowen (West Ham - 7.5M)

West Ham's Europa Conference League Hero Jarod Bowen has had a great start to the 2023/24 Premier League season, with the former Hull City man currently the third highest points-scoring midfielder in bet365's fantasy game on 41.9.

Ahead of a home fixture against a deflated Sheffield United side in Gameweek 7, Bowen will be confident of adding to his four Premier League goals so far this campaign at the London Stadium.

Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton - 7.6M)

Comfortably sat in third after recent wins against Bournemouth, Manchester United and Newcastle. Brighton could be serious contenders for a top 4 finish. 

Brighton's success has come as no surprise with Kaoru Mitoma leading the charge, having recorded three goals and three assists so far this season, and the Japanese winger will be one of the Seagulls' main danger men ahead of their trip to Aston Villa in Gameweek 7.

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle – 6.1M)

Anthony Gordon has had a strong start to the new Premier League season, registering two goals and three assists in five starts for Newcastle, following on from winning the 2023 Under 21 Euros and being named Player of the Tournament during the summer

Coming in at just 6.1M and registering 12.1 points in Gameweek 6, an in-form Gordon looks capable of another points haul when Burnley visit St James' Park in Gameweek 7.

Erling Haaland (Man City - 12.7M)

Following a three-game game winless streak including a draw to a struggling Luton Town, a fixture against reigning champions Manchester City is the last thing Gary O'Neil's Wolves could do with right now.

The last time Wolves faced Man City in January, Erling Haaland scored a devastating hat-trick in a 3-0 win for Pep Guardiola's side.

The Norwegian will be hoping to emulate this feat at Molineux in Gameweek 7, with City aiming to continue their 100% start to the new Premier League season.

Taiwo Awoniyi (Nottingham Forest - 6.2M)

Steve Cooper will be looking to get back on track with a home fixture against Brentford who have recently been dealt a blow with German forward Kevin Schade set to miss months of action due to injury.

The Reds will be optimistic going into the game, with newcomers Nicolas Dominguez and Gonzalo Montiel showing signs of promise against giants Manchester City last time out.

With only 4.89% of fantasy managers owning the Nigerian, Taiwo Awoniyi still appears underappreciated, and a home match-up against Thomas Frank's Bees should offer him opportunities to add to his three goals and two assists in the Premier League so far this season.

Captain - Erling Haaland

Once again it seems almost impossible to go against Erling Haaland when selecting your captain for Gameweek 7, with a favourable fixture for Man City away at struggling Wolves providing the Norwegian a presentable opportunity to add to his haul of eight Premier League goals so far this term.

Top Gameweek 7 differentials:

  • Bernd Leno (3.83% ownership)
  • James Tarkowski (1.74% ownership)
  • Anthony Gordon (1.15% ownership)
  • Taiwo Awoniyi (4.89% ownership)
