There are some tasty fixtures in the Premier League this weekend and here, we take a look at 5 midfielders who are in with a great chance of earning fantasy football points for your side. Sadio Mane of Liverpool, Eden Hazard and Willian of Chelsea, Juan Mata of Manchester United, Leroy Fer of Swansea city all come under the spotlight.
Sadio Mane – Liverpool
Liverpool kick off this weekends Premier League action with a home match against city rivals Everton. They have a great record in this fixture and Sadio Mane has already scored this season against the Toffees. He is valued at 9M and has chipped in with 12 goals, 5 assists and 7 clean sheets, giving him a points total of 68. His price/performance ratio of 7.4 will only rise as the season draws to a conclusion.
Eden Hazard – Chelsea
With a 10 point lead at the top of the table and a home match against Crystal Palace, Chelsea should be good enough to take all 3 points here. Eden Hazard’s return to form has been instrumental in their rise to the top this season and the midfielder with 11 goals, 4 assists and 12 clean sheets should add to that tally this weekend. He is valued at 12M and his price/performance ratio is 6.5.
Willian – Chelsea
Sticking with Chelsea, Willian scored in his last match against Stoke City as Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners. That as his 6th goal of the season and along with 1 assist and 10 clean sheets, he should come under consideration for your team this weekend. He can be in your side for 8.5M and his price/performance ratio is 5.5.
Juan Mata – Manchester United
Manchester United have a strong record against West Bromwich Albion, their opponents this weekend. Juan Mata doesn’t always play 90 minutes, but when he is on the field, those minutes normally count. He has 6 goals, 3 assists and 7 clean sheets in just 20 starts and if he starts on Saturday, his price/performance ratio of 5.4 will surely rise as Manchester United look to keep tabs on the teams above them.
Leroy Fer – Swansea City
Swansea City aren’t having the greatest of seasons, but they will know that a win on Saturday against Middlesbrough will move them further away from the relegation zone. Leroy Fer has been one sand-out in the team with 6 goals, 2 assists and 2 clean sheets and can be in your side for 7M. His points tally of 24 should rise this weekend as a clean sheet at least looks on the cards for Swansea.
