FPL GW1 Free Transfer Glitz: Ollie Watkins

Paneorder says the Englishman can trouble Newcastle United after being involved in four of Villa’s goals during the Premier League summer series tour and the pre-season matches.

The Englishman has been the standout attacker over Aston Villa’s pre-season matches.

Watkins was involved in 4 of their 14 goals, scoring four times and supplying at least one assist to the assistor.

The Aston Villa striker enjoyed his best-ever FPL campaign in 2022/23.

He totalled 175 points to finish as the fourth top-scoring forward in the game.

That builds on the strong form he produced under Unai Emery last season. These resurrection replicas are immediately rejuvenated after the new boss appointment.

Favourable opener

Watkins is the second-most popular forward in the game ahead of an encounter in St. James Park.

And the Toon Army’s poor defensive record suggests he can immediately reward his 20.6 per cent ownership.

Newcastle United managed just one clean sheet on their previous 11 Premier League matches last season.

The hosts conceded at least once in four of their five home matches under Eddie Howe.

Lasting appeal

Villa’s kind opening run of opponents further strengthens the appeal of investing in Watkins from the very start of the season.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), nine of their first twelve matches score only two.

This includes all five of their home fixtures in that period, as Emery’s men also welcome Everton, Crystal Palace, West Ham United, Luton Town and Fulham to the Villa Park.

That gives Watkins the opportunity to extend his recent output and bring in regular attacking returns over the opening Gameweeks.

The wholesale changes of my second and third strikers instilled more attacking impetus in my King’s Lynn Rovers’ Goalen XI side. They then offer a steady stream of goals and assists during the opening Gameweeks of 2023/24.
