Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 25: Midfielders

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s match-winning performance for Arsenal against Crystal Palace earned him 16 points, the kind of return that would handsomely reward the relatively inexpensive £6.7m Fantasy fee.

£6.6m will get you Tottenham Hotspur’s Paulinho, who scored on his first game back from injury in the 1-1 draw at Hull City and earned ten points in the process.

This weekend sees Spurs host Everton, for whom Kevin Mirallas, scorer of a cracking solo goal at White Hart Lane last season, is on fire.

£7.3m will get you the Belgian, while Aiden McGeady’s promising performance in the Toffees’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa suggests him as a wise investment at £6m.

Aston Villa’s Leandro Bacuna has now scored in consecutive games, both from open play – we mention this as his previous two goals this season had both been from free kicks.

£4.4m will get him, while £4.2m will get Sunderland’s Jack Colback, who got a goal and an assist in their 3-0 win at Newcastle United.

Speaking of Sunderland midfielders, need we suggest Adam Johnson at £6.9m? That’s six goals in four games for the soon-to-be-England-again winger.

Sunderland are at home to Hull City this weekend, while Aston Villa are at home to West Ham United.

Southampton’s £7.7m Adam Lallana scored ten points for a second consecutive game, cementing his status as the third highest points-scoring midfielder in the Fantasy Premier League realm bar Yaya Touré and Eden Hazard.

Saints are at home to Stoke City, who may be coming off the back of a win over Manchester United but don’t seem to travel well.

Speaking of Stoke, Charlie Adams’s sixth and seventh goals of the season won the day against United, so check him out at just £5.6m.

West Ham United’s Kevin Nolan was the sudden beneficiary of Andy Carroll’s return to the ‘fold’, converting twice from his knockdowns.

Should Carroll’s ludicrous red card be rescinded, Nolan could prove to be a canny move at £6.5m as the Hammers go to Aston Villa, who don’t have the best home record.

£5.4m Wilfried Zaha got a crucial assist on his Cardiff City debut, while £9.7m Juan Mata has two assists in his first two games for Manchester United.
