FPL Pre-season Ones to watch: Midfielder mid-range options


There are some bargains to be had in the mid-range midfield options in FPL. These are the players who could post big points tallies and prove bargain buys. Here are some those potential bargains:

Luka Milivojevic (Crystal Palace, £7M)

The Eagles star was productive last season, scoring 12 goals and producing two assists. The Serbian star’s numbers were boosted by the fact he took penalty kicks, which he is likely to be on again next season. With the introduction of VAR in the Premier League next season, spot-kick takers could earn even more points than last season. His tally from last season is not a one-off either, as the 28-year-old also scored ten times in season 2017/18.

Felipe Anderson (West Ham, £7m)

The Brazilian arrived for big-money last summer from Lazio and enjoyed a solid debut campaign in the Premier League. He scored nine times and produced six assists in the English top-flight. After a full season in the Premier League, he could improve still further in the new campaign. The Hammers kick-off their season with a tough home game against Manchester City. However, their next four matches all score lower than three in the FPL difficulty ranking.

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace £7M)

The Ivory Coast international was supposedly the Eagles biggest attacking threat last season. However, Milivojevic outscored the winger by two goals in the league, but Zaha did also produce 11 assists. His performances were enough to attract the interest of Arsenal, who reportedly saw bids rejected for the forward. However, the Gunners are still favourites to be the winger’s next club. Whether he stays at Palace, or he moves to Arsenal, Zaha could offer good value at £7m.

Ayoze Perez (Leicester, £6.5m)

The Spanish star is best known as a forward but is classified as a midfielder, which is always an advantage for any FPL asset. Perez enjoyed the most prolific season of his career last season, scoring 12 goals, while also producing two assists. His impressive displays last season earned the former Tenerife star a surprise £30million move to Leicester. Although Perez is not guaranteed a place in the Foxes attack.

However, his ability to play in the attacking midfielder roles means he is likely to play on a regular basis for the club from the Midlands. At £6.5m playing in an attacking team, he could well prove to be a bargain.

James Maddison (Leicester, £7m)

The playmaker enjoyed a good debut campaign with the Foxes after a big-money summer move from Norwich. The youngster scored seven goals and also produced seven assists. His good displays led to speculation over a move to Manchester United. However, for now, he is an intricate part of the Leicester team. The Foxes have a mixed start to their Premier League and Maddison may well be a wait and see when it comes to selection in anybody’s FPL’s squad.

Pablo Fornals (West Ham, £6.5m)

The 23-year-old arrived this summer from Villarreal with a big reputation. The attacking midfielder has not quite lived up to his potential so far. He scored two goals and produced three assists for the Yellow Submarine. At £6.5m, he could well prove to be a shrewd selection. The Hammers have good fixtures after their opening clash with Manchester City on the opening weekend.

Emiliano Buendia (Norwich, £6.5m)

The Argentinian played a key part in the Canaries promotion last season by scoring eight goals and producing 12 assists while on-loan in Norfolk. He has now made the move a permanent one. Buendia could be a star, but Norwich’s tough opening schedule may mean that the youngster may need to wait to be a popular FPL choice later in the season.

Will any of the above options be in your FPL team?
