Here are 3 ideal Fantasy Premier League replacements for Dele Alli
Tottenham Hotspur have been rocked by the news of Dele Alli’s injury, who will be out for up to a month before returning to training. The England midfielder is a crucial member of Mauricio Pochettino’s side and is one of their potent forces in front of the goal apart from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min.
Fantasy Premier League managers will be sweating even more with the dreadful news but thankfully, they don’t have to wait for long to bring in a replacement. A number of enticing options are available for a similar price.
Here we take a look at three ideal replacements for the Tottenham midfielder-
Heung Min-Son (Tottenham Hotspur)
Dele Alli’s teammate was one of the biggest threats in their side last season. The South Korean is fresh from lifting the Asian Games trophy and it shouldn’t take him much time to return to form.
Priced at £8.3million, the South Korean is £0.7million cheaper than Dele Alli and will surely take up the goalscoring responsibility in his absence. Spurs face Cardiff City in the Premier League next and the Bluebirds have been one of the defensively poorest sides this season.
For a player who scored 12 goals and provided 6 assists in the league last season, there’s every chance he’ll punish a fragile Cardiff City defence.
Leroy Sane (Manchester City)
The German started the season on the bench and was kept there until Benjamin Mendy recently succumbed to an injury. There’s no one who offers the kind of depth and energy that Leroy Sane does and that’s exactly why he has picked up points in his last three starts for the club.
Sane scored 9,6 and 6 points in the last three games and has played the full 90 minutes in two of those games. For now, Sane’s place in the squad seems assured with Mendy out, but it doesn’t seem like the Frenchman will return anytime soon.
Priced at £9.2million, Sane is £0.2million more expensive than Dele Alli but it’s always a safer choice to bank on Manchester City’s offensive powerhouses.
Everton’s explosive Brazilian is back from his suspension and has looked good. Though he has failed to find the back of the net, Richarlison has taken a total of 6 shots on target since returning. He is devastating going forward and has already picked up 3 goals this season.
The Brazilian might have tailed off after making a splendid start last season, but signs show that there’s a very less chance of that happening again. Priced at £6.7million he is a much cheaper alternative than Dele Alli. The Toffees also have decent fixtures coming up.
