AI picks ideal FPL team ahead of Gameweek 3, Fantasy managers should take note
| Last updated
Artificial intelligence has conjured up the ideal Fantasy Football line-up ahead of Gameweek 3.
With the help of AI, popular FPL website FantasyFootballHub has created a starting squad based on a "powerful projection of predicted points" over a five-gameweek period.Those predictions, however, change frequently as new information emerges.
And below is the XI the AI has selected ahead of Gameweek 3?
As you can see in the graphic below, FantasyFootballHub's AI tool has opted to start Chelsea's Robert Sanchez between the sticks, with the Blues welcoming Premier League new-boys Luton Town on Friday night.
In defence, the AI has fielded a back three featuring Brighton's Pervis Estupinan, whose goal and assist against Wolves in Gameweek 2 saw him earn managers 11 points. The Seagulls star slots in alongside Chelsea's Ben Chilwell and Josko Gvardiol, with the latter's Manchester City side taking on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
The AI has picked a five-person midfield featuring Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, with the Old Trafford club taking on Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Arsenal pair Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli are also included while City's Phil Foden has made the cut, with the England international having starred from a central-role in Gameweek 2 against Newcastle United, creating some seven chances.
Of course, leading the line is City's Erling Haaland. While the Norwegian only picked up two points against Sheffield United, he claimed some 13 in the season opener against Burnley after netting a brace.
Against Sheffield United, who are still adjusting to life in the Premier League, Haaland is likely to be supplied with plenty of opportunities to add to his goal tally.
Alongside the 23-year-old, the AI has opted to field Chelsea forward Nicolas Jackson. While he is yet to score in English football, Jackson has impressed in the first two games of his Blues career, and the AI believes the Senegal international is set to claim his first-ever Premier League goal against Luton on Friday.
Meanwhile on the bench is Nottingham Forest's Matt Turner, Brentford's Rico Henry, Sheffield United's William Osula and Burnely's Jordan Beyer.
