Chris Löwe could become a target for FPL Managers

- Fantasy Premier League tips ahead of Gameweek 8
- Chris Löwe is Town’s leading player for successful crosses
- Philip Billing excelling going forwards and defensively

Chris Löwe’s (£4.4m) contribution down the Huddersfield Town left flank could be decisive in Gameweek 8 of Fantasy Premier League.

The German will be up against Burnley’s Johan Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m) at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Gudmundsson is The Clarets’ form player, with one goal and three assists in the last two Gameweeks.

But Löwe’s raids forward can take advantage of the hosts’ apparent weakness on the right hand side.

Burnley have conceded 38 chances down their right flank, at least nine more than any other side.

Löwe, meanwhile, is Huddersfield’s leading player for both crosses (40) and successful crosses (eight) over the first seven Gameweeks.

The Terriers travel to Turf Moor having scored in all three of their away matches.

And their hopes of extending that goal streak are boosted by Burnley’s defensive statistics.

The Lancashire outfit have conceded 142 shots, at least 20 more than any other side.

Crucially, Burnley’s record of 31 attempts conceded from set-plays is the second worst in the Premier League.

This suggests that Aaron Mooy’s (£5.3m) delivery from dead-ball situations can pose Sean Dyche’s side problems this weekend.

The Australia international is second only to Steve Mounié (£5.9m) for shots on goal among team-mates, by eight to 13. Meanwhile, no Huddersfield player has bettered Mooy’s four key passes.

Philip Billing’s (£4.5m) all-round style of play can be vital for Huddersfield.

The Dane’s tally of six shots inside the penalty is placed second for his side, while he has already scored away from home at Everton in Gameweek 4

Billing has also excelled defensively, with his totals of 26 successful tackles and 15 interceptions more than any team-mate.

That will boost his chances of FPL bonus points should he score or assist at Turf Moor.
