Fantasy Premier League tips: 15 bargain midfielders you should sign

first_img 15 15 5. Anthony Knockaert (Brighton) – £6million – He is currently rated as ‘touch and go’ to start the season due to an injury, but don’t let that put you off. He’s key for Chris Hughton’s side and will provide assists and score goals. 8. Matt Ritchie (Newcastle United) – £6million – At Bournemouth in the Premier League, the Scotsman scored four goals and made six assists. After a good debut campaign at St James’ Park, Ritchie could do the business again. 15 6. Elias Kachunga (Huddersfield) – £6million – Listed as a midfielder, the German star grabbed 12 goals last season and could offer you a similar option to Joshua King last year. 3. Manuel Lanzini (West Ham) – £7million – With Dimitri Payet a distant memory, the Argentine is playing a bigger role for the Hammers. Expect him to score and assist more this campaign. 15 15 15 15 15 15 15 4. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – £6million – There have been some transfer rumours surrounding the Gunner, but he flourished towards the end of last season and it may continue into this campaign. It’s a little risky as he might not be a starter, but he will score points. 15 2. Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – £7million – The Eagles star is gradually becoming more effective in the final third and should improve on his seven goals and nine assists last season. 15 13. Lewis Cook (Bournemouth) – £4.5million – After captaining the England Under-20s to a World Cup win, the ex-Leeds United man is set for a bigger role with the Cherries this season, especially with Jack Wilshere off the books. 15 10. James Ward-Prowse (Southampton) – £5.5million – A set-piece star, if the Saints and England man gets more playing time he will improve vastly on the four goals and four assists he got last season. 15 15 14. Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Crystal Palace) – £4.5million – The Chelsea loanee is highly-rated and could make a big impact at Selhurst Park this season. 12. Luka Milivojevic (Crystal Palace) – £5million – The Serbian midfielder was a superb signing in January, and currently appears to be the nominated penalty taker for the Eagles. He also curled in brilliant free-kick against West Brom in pre-season so could be a good pick. 11. Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City) – £5million – Foxes star Ndidi was another excellent January addition and got himself two goals and three assists. Imagine what he will do in a full campaign. 9. Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) – £5.5million – A breakout performer last year with the Cherries, he scored three goals and made nine assists from December onwards. 7.
