Leicester are the top rated team for clean sheet potential in GW7. The Foxes will host Newcastle and are given a 50% likelihood of recording a shut-out. The like of Jonny Evans (£5.0m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.4m) will look to gain clean sheet points, Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m) offers attacking potential, as evidenced by his goal last week, and Caglar Soyuncu (£4.6m) represents an excellent budget option this week.

Second on the list are Liverpool who travel to Sheffield Utd in GW7. While clean sheets have been in short supply for highly-owned Liverpool assets Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m), Andrew Robertson (£6.9m) and Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m), Sheffield Utd have scored just two goals in their opening three home matches.

A third interesting option when clean sheet hunting are Chelsea defenders. While the club have yet to record a shut-out this season, they have been improving with each passing week. The like of Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) are well known FPL assets but Fokayo Tomori (£4.5m) is an extremely attractive budget route into the Chelsea backline.

Unsurprisingly, Sheffield Utd and Everton are at the bottom of the list as the two sides host Liverpool and Man City respectively. City come into the game on the back of putting eight past Watford, while Liverpool haven’t failed to score in their last 15 Premier League matches.
