Fantasy Premier League tips gameweek 1 midfielders

Fulfill your fantasy football potential with the help of this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 midfielders round-up.

Recommended midfielder picks for this Gameweek include players from Manchester City, Liverpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton, Chelsea, Fulham and Cardiff City.

🌟 Sané/Mahrez MCI, £9.5m/£9m

Raheem Sterling’s price has been bumped up to £11m off the back of his productive campaign last year, but he may be suffering from World Cup hangover.

As such, Leroy Sané and Riyad Mahrez look like great options given they’re both cheaper and both potentially explosive attacking threats.

City start with a trip to Arsenal, where they strolled to a 3-0 win last season, before they embark on a favourable-looking run of fixtures.

🌟 Sadio Mané LIV, £9.5m

Mohamed Salah goes without saying, but if his £13m price proves prohibitive then Mané works well as a cheaper alternative.

With an opening day fixture at home to West Ham, he wouldn’t be a bad captain choice either.

Nevertheless, beware of World Cup hangover.

🌟 Jota/Richarlison/Walcott WOL/EVE/EVE, £6.5m each

Wolves v Everton could feature three excellent £6.5m options – Diogo Jota, Richarlison and Theo Walcott will all be among the likeliest goal-scorers should they start.

🌟 Willian CHE, £7.5m

Seems to be popular with Chelsea’s new manager Maurizio Sarri, and an opening day trip to Huddersfield is potentially a profitable fixture if he hits the ground running.

Again though, beware of World Cup hangover.

🌟 Sessegnon/Schürrle FUL, £6.5m/£6m

Ryan Sessegnon and André Schürrle are two exciting players with potential for goals and available relatively cheaply, they start 2018-19 at home to Crystal Palace.

🌟 Junior Hoilett CAR, £5.5m

For a Cardiff side that looks likely to rely on set pieces, Hoilett’s corner-taking could prove pivotal. First up, a trip to slow starters Bournemouth.
