Unlock your fantasy football potential with these lovingly scouted Fantasy Premier League bargain midfielders.

Recommendations include players from Spurs, Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Southampton, Huddersfield and Newcastle.

Dele Alli/Christian Eriksen, TOT – £9.5m/£9.5m

Neither are exactly cheap, but given they both easily cleared the 200-point mark last season they’re bargains compared to other ‘premium’ midfielders.

£8m team-mate Son Heung-min is also well worthy of consideration having scored 14 Premier League goals last year.

Adam Lallana, LIV – £7.5m

Still reasonably priced despite reasserting his knack for goals and assists last year.

Davy Klaassen, EVE – £7.5m

If he can replicate his goal-scoring record at Ajax in an Everton shirt then he’ll be worth plenty of points.

Aaron Ramsey, ARS – £7m

Looked liberated in Arsenal’s new system at the end of last season, and if he gets any kind of run then goals and assists are likely to follow.

Wilfried Zaha, CRY – £7m

Looks to be gradually fulfilling the potential that prompted Man Utd to take a punt on him a few years ago.

Manuel Lanzini, WHU – £7m

Stepped up into the role of Hammers’ main play-maker following the departure of Dimitri Payet, although £7.5m team-mate Michail Antonio is also worth considering given his goal-scoring ability.

Nathan Redmond, SOU – £6.5m

Southampton have a great opening run of fixtures, so Redmond could be a wise pick if he’s a guaranteed starter.

Thomas Ince, HUD – £6m

A bright attacking spark and set piece taker for newly promoted Huddersfield – one to watch.

Matt Ritchie, NEW – £6m

Racked up plenty of goals and assists in the Championship last season, but he’ll hope to deliver more end product than he did at Bournemouth a couple of seasons back.

Yohan Cabaye, CRY – £5.5m

Seemed to be reestablishing himself in Palace’s first team over the course of last season and could get goals as a penalty taker.


There are some potentially nifty £4.5m options to consider as well – Swansea’s Tom Carroll, Crystal Palace’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Watford’s Nathaniel Chalobah.
