A new season’s Fantasy Premier League is open for business, so do consider the following three potential Newcastle bargains.
Tim Krul, goalkeeper – £4.5m
By definition, any first-choice ‘keeper is a bargain at that price as long as they’re not nailed on to concede a hatful. It’s not inconceivable that McClaren can engineer some clean sheets at home.
Papiss Cissé/Aleksandar Mitrović, forward – £6.5m
The former scored at an impressive rate last season before getting himself banned for spitting at Johnny Evans, but the latter is the new manager’s big summer signing. Who will start, if not both?
Daryl Janmaat, defender – £5m
Got 8 assists last season, one of the highest totals for a defender in the Premier League.
