Fantasy Premier League tips gameweek 1 goalkeepers round-up

Our Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 goalkeepers round-up is here to usher you gently in the direction of those juicy clean sheets.

Recommended selections this week include players from Watford, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton, Chelsea, Bournemouth and Manchester City.

🌟 Ben Foster WAT, £4.5m

Clean sheets can be hard to predict in the opening rounds of games, but you tend to get the odd gritty 1-0 win between sides with mid-table aspirations.

Watford’s opening day fixture at home to Brighton strikes as just such a fixture, although it could conceivably go either way.

Nevertheless, it’s striking that four of Watford’s first five matches are at home, albeit the latter two are against Spurs and Man Utd.

🌟 Rui Patrício WOL, £4.5m

Wolves had a strong defensive record in winning last year’s Championship, and an opening day home game against Everton holds promise for them.

🌟 Jordan Pickford EVE, £5m

Although a trip to Wolves looks a tough opener, Everton play at home to Southampton, Huddersfield and West Ham in three of their four games following that.

Alternatively, Pickford replaces Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea and starts his season with a trip to Huddersfield. Speaking of which…

🌟 Thibaut Courtois CHE, £5.5m

Unless he leaves for pastures new, Courtois has a favourable run of games to start 2018-19, kicking off with a trip to low-scoring Huddersfield.

🌟 Asmir Begović BOU, £4.5m

Bournemouth have one of the best fixtures to start their season with – a home game against Neil Warnock’s newly promoted Cardiff.

🌟 Ederson MCI, £5.5m

Away to Arsenal isn’t the ideal match to start with, but after that Man City have what looks like a comfortable run of games.
