Three Cheaper Alternatives For Leroy Sane Who FPL Managers Can Draft In

Leroy Sane has been a favourite of Fantasy Premier League managers – and for all good reasons. Adjudged the fastest player in the Premier League, Sane has been a silent yet instrumental figure for Manchester City.

Be it creating sneaky chances or supplying Gabriel Jesus or Sergio Aguero with support, Sane does it all with ease. However, going into Gameweek 8, here is a list of three cheaper alternatives for the Manchester City forward if you want to avoid splashing out the cash.

Cesc Fabregas – Chelsea

Chelsea play Crystal Palace on Saturday, and there are very little chances for this game to end in anything but a victory for the Blues. Fabregas has his moments but he has been quite strong for the Blues so far.

He started just 13 games for Chelsea last season, but he made his worth felt everytime time he entered the fray from the bench. In fact, he also set up 12 goals and scored 5 himself, even though he had a relatively low amount of minutes on the field. That only goes to show the effectiveness of the player, and he will be a vital presence in the Blues’ midfield against Crystal Palace, as Kante and Drinkwater are unavailable.

Pascal Gross – Brighton

The Brighton midfielder has been earning several accolades for his incisive yet direct attacking skills this season. Brighton play Everton over the weekend, and against a side as defensively frail like the Toffees, Gross will certainly be in fiery form. Considering his performances in Brighton’s previous couple of games, Gross is unlikely to face any problems against Koeman’s men.

The new signing from Bundesliga scores goals and provides assists from open play as well as set pieces, making him a valuable player to purchase. Crucially, he comes a lot cheaper than some other options.

Abdoulaye Doucoure – Watford

Watford have a tough match against Arsenal on Saturday but that should not stop Doucoure from continuing his good work. The French midfielder has been one of Watford’s best players in the early stages of the 2017-18 campaign. The 24-year-old has been an ever-present and has managed to bag himself a few goals.

Operating in the heart of the midfield in Silva’s 4-3-3 formation, Doucoure offers the kind of imposing display that has truly managed to elevate Watford’s performances. Playing against Arsenal will truly be a test for the midfielder but, nevertheless, Doucoure has the potential to cause an upset.
