Gameweek 15 was another FPL round that saw two of our ones to watch pick up decent points tallies. I hope that we can do even better this time around with gameweek 16’s ones to watch. Here they are:
Sead Kolasinac (Arsenal, £4.9m)
Although the Bosnia-Herzegovina international may be ousted from the left-back spot once Nacho Monreal returns to fitness, he looks a good short-term option for anybody’s team at £4.9m.
The Gunners host Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. The Terriers are the lowest scoring team in the Premier League this season with just 10 goals scored this season. That means the home side may be set for a rare clean sheet.
Kolasinac is always an attacking danger too, as he loves marauding into the final third. His directness and sheer power are a good weapon in Arsenal’s well Arsenal. At his current price, he looks like a good pick, especially if he keeps his starting role as the Gunners have some really promising fixtures in the near future.
Lucas Digne (Everton, £4.9m)
The French full-back has impressed for the Toffees since his summer arrival from Barcelona. He has been effective in both defence and attack. Digne has been the ideal replacement for Everton’s marauding left-back Leighton Baines.
Last time out against Newcastle, the full-back looked the most likely player to create a winner for Marco Silva, as he kept going down the left flank for the Merseysiders. The Toffees defence has not kept bucket loads of clean sheets, but they are looking much more solid than at the start of the season.
A home game against Watford on Monday night, a game the Toffees are big favourites to win, is the ideal opportunity for the French star to add to his points tally at both ends of the pitch.
Robert Snodgrass (West Ham, £5.3m)
The Scottish international looks a no-brainer enabler at the minute. The Hammers have a great run of fixtures and the former Leeds man is just £5.3m. While the experienced winger has not always been a first choice for the Hammers this season, he has now started six of the Irons last seven top-flight games, completing 90 minutes on five occasions.
Snodgrass has produced three assists in the last two gameweeks. The visit of Crystal Palace to the London Stadium this weekend on adds to his appeal. Four of West Ham’s next five games are just two on the Fixture difficulty ranking.
Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal, £9.6m)
The French forward is a bit pricey for one of our picks but looks good value in a Gunners team that has a big attacking threat. Lacazette has started the last two games on the bench, but still contributed a goal and an assist, which has helped Unai Emery’s team pick up four points.
Judging by his recent performances off the bench of late, the striker should be in the Arsenal starting line-up for a plum home game against Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.
With more good fixtures to come over the festive period, Lacazette offers a value alternative to Gunners teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has been in superb form of late.
Who will be the ones to watch in gameweek 16 of the FPL?
