- By Football Burp
Make your fantasy football fantasies come true with the help of this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 midfielders round-up.
Recommended selections this week include players from Swansea, Man Utd, Chelsea, Leicester and Man City.
Anthony Martial/Henrikh Mkhitaryan, MUN – £9.5m each
José Mourinho’s United start at Bournemouth, and it’s interesting to note that Martial is listed as a midfielder this season.
As for Mkhitaryan, he scored 23 goals in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund last season and claimed even more assists.
Eden Hazard/Cesc Fàbregas, CHE – £10m/£7.5m
Hazard ended last season back in form and has scored goals in pre-season, while Fàbregas’s price has been slashed after a disappointing campaign.
Home to West Ham is no easy start, but you wouldn’t bet against either of these guys playing a starring role.
André Ayew/Gylfi Sigurðsson, SWA – £7.5m each
An opening day fixture at newly promoted Burnley awaits two midfielders-cum-forwards who both hit double figures in terms of goals last season.
Riyad Mahrez, LEI – £9.5m
Scored more points than anyone else in last season’s FPL and starts the new campaign at a Hull in crisis.
Kevin de Bruyne, MCI – £10.5m
Was electric in home games last season, and that’s where he starts 2016-17 – against David Moyes’s Sunderland.
Good luck and happy selecting!
