The Premier League makes a welcome return after a week of drama which saw Claudio Ranieri sacked from Champions Leicester City. We take a look at the five midfielders in action and most liekly to earn your fantasy football team some points. Eden Hazard of Chelsea, Deli Alli and Christian Eriksen of Tottenham, Ross Barkley of Everton and Sadio Mane of Liverpool all come under scrutiny.
Eden Hazard – Chelsea
The top performing player in the fantasy league, Eden Hazard has a great chance of some points this weekend. He has accumulated a total of 68 ponts, which, even with his price tag of 12M, makes him great value. Chelsea face Swansea City this weekend at home and a comfortable win should be on the cards as Chelsea bid to protect their 8 point lead at the summit of the Premier League.
Dele Alli – Tottenham
Spurs face Stoke City this weekend and, given their great record at home, should win this match with relative ease. Dele Alli has been performing brilliantly (apart from his red card in the Europa League) and with 66 points gained from 22 starts, he is one midfielder who can earn points for your team. His Price/Performance ratio of 8.0 is one of the highest returns throughout the Premier League.
Christian Eriksen - Tottenham
Sticking with Tottenham, another midfielder who serious thought should be give to is Christian Eriksen. He is valued at 9M and has returned a total of 56 points. He has scored 5 goals and assisted 8. This along with 10 clean sheets, most of which have been at home, suggests he is likely to add to the total.
Ross Barkely - Everton
Everton are having a great season, but they really need a win against bottom club Sunderland to keep their hopes of reaching the top six alive. Ross Barkley has been an influential figure from midfield with 4 goals, 5 assists and 8 clean sheets. He has a total of 39 points, 8 of which have been gained in his last 2 matches and Everton look like one team who look likely to take all 3 points this weekend.
Sadio Mane – Liverpool
Leicester City are in turmoil at the moment and Liverpool will look to capitalize on that on Monday. Sadio Mane has scored 11 goals and along with 4 assists and 7 clean sheets, his points total of 63 is a terrific return. Valued at 9M, his price/performance ratio is 7.2 and that looks sure to rise by the end of play this weekend.
