Midfielders in the Fantasy Premier League are the most crucial players, who should score the most points on your team. They gain points for clean sheets and points for their involvement in the attack as well. To free up some cash for some top quality midfielders, here are some cheap ones who have the potential of scoring a decent amount of points themselves ?
Tamir Cohen is a Bolton Wanderers midfield player who originates from Israel. He has had a great start to his Premiership career, with 3 goals and one assist so far. His price of 4.7 million pounds could potentially save you a lot of money, as it is one of the cheapest in the league. He has averaged 5 points per game so far this season, and if he keeps up that average, his price will continue to rise.
Bolton?s next 4 games are against Manchester United, Everton, Chelsea and Aston Villa, so it may be worthwhile waiting until they have an easier run of games before you pick him up.
Andy Reid is a former Nottingham Forest, Tottenham and Charlton winger, who now plays for Sunderland in the Premiership. After losing 9kg over the summer months, the player who was famous for being a bit tubby has been one of the in-form midfielders this season. Currently ranked in third place for midfielders form, he is only just behind Cecs Fabragas (1st) and Yossi Benayoun (2nd), who are considerably more expensive. He has averaged 7.2 points a game so far, and is only worth 5.4 million pounds which makes him a bargain.
Sunderland?s next game is against Liverpool at Anfield, but then they play Birmingham, followed by West Ham. My advice here would be to wait one week, before you purchase him.
David Dunn is playing a very advanced midfield role for Blackburn this season. This seems to have paid off for him, as he is currently the 5th ranked midfielder in terms of form, for the first eight games this season. His average score per match has been 6.8 points, and he costs a measly 5.4 million pounds. He has scored 3 goals and accumulated 7 bonus points so far and has been described by his manager as being in scintillating form. In fact rumours of an England recall have surfaced in the media recently. The England manager has always maintained he picks players on form and not reputation, which is all the incentive Dunn needs to shed his ?one cap wonder? tag. Dunn has got all the attributes to push for a place in the 23-man squad. His wonderful craft and vision would create chances galore for Wayne Rooney, while he can also beat players and chip in with the odd goal himself. Fabio Capello has made shock selection decisions before, calling-up Jimmy Bullard and Gary Cahill recently – so a recall for Dunn could possibly be on the cards, if he stays injury free?
Blackburn has a game against Burnley next, followed by Chelsea and Manchester United. My advise here is to wait until after the Manchester United game to pick him up, as they then play Portsmouth in game week 12 and then have a double game week in game week 13 ? where they play Bolton and Fulham.
