Three ideal fantasy Premier League players to bring in before the price rise
Fantasy Premier League proved just how cruel it is after Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick at the Vitality stadium landed managers a whopping 21 points this week, but only for those who had the Egyptian in their teams.
For those who picked Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be relieved as the Arsenal forward delivered them with an assist but for those managers who banked their faith on Spurs striker Harry Kane were left utterly frustrated after the England captain started the game on the bench to hand them just one point.
A number of other options continued to flourish and managers have already started to transfer those players in mass. That means one thing and one thing only, price rise! Lucky for those managers who are currently tinkering with their squad and looking for the ideal options to bring in this week. Here we have three players who can make a difference in the forthcoming gameweeks.
Felipe Anderson (West Ham United)
After making a slow start to life at the London Stadium, the West Ham United midfielder now has a total of 6 goals and 2 assists this season. An injury to Andriy Yarmolenko has seen the Brazilian thrive, delivering managers with three double-figure hauls in his last 6 appearances.
Managers must definitely bring in Anderson given the kind of run of fixtures the Hammers still have. Only Watford rank 3 in the fixture difficulty rating in West Ham’s next 5 games. His price has already risen to £7.3million and will definitely go up another notch before the weekend.
Chicharito (West Ham United)
Like his teammate, Chicharito has benefited from a timely injury to striker Marko Arnautovic. The Austrian was a standout choice for the Hammers in their tasty looking run of fixtures but it’s the Mexican who is sending waves at the moment.
Chicharito has scored 3 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games while providing one double-figure haul as well. The Mexican is still kindly priced at £6.4million but it will surely go up before they face a leaky Fulham this weekend. Expect Javier Hernandez to get back on the scoresheet.
Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur)
Always a popular choice in the game, Son has finally returned to the form that made him an FPL favourite for managers last season. The South Korean has provided returns in 5 of his last 6 gameweeks and has proven to be a potent weapon in front of the goal.
He picked up his first double-figure haul against Leicester City last weekend, bagging a goal and an assist along with three bonus points. The South Korean’s price has already risen in the past week and is currently £8.5million which is still not a bad amount to invest.
Given Spurs have excellent fixtures all the way up to mid-February, with only Manchester United ranking 4 in fixture difficulty ranking in that time, Son is a must have.
