Get ready for this season’s Fantasy Premier League by considering these three potential Chelsea bargains.
Eden Hazard goes without saying, but the £11.5m fee imposes austerity measures elsewhere in your squad. Perhaps opting for £9m Cesc Fàbregas would be prudent, albeit a gamble.
In terms of Chelsea bargains, give the following your thought…
César Azpilicueta, defender – £6m
The cheapest of José Mourinho’s regular back four, and offsets his comparative lack of goals and assists with regular bonus points.
Early stages of seasons can be unpredictable and Chelsea tend to need to establish a rhythm before they achieve peak Mourinhosity.
Willian, midfielder – £7m
There’s a steady supply of assists in there. Mind you, you could say the same about his potential rival for a regular first team spot, Cuadrado.
Radamel Falcao, forward – £7.5m
Unless he really is, as they say in the trade, “Torres’d”, the Colombian could seriously reward that sort of modest outlay. Likely however to play second fiddle to Diego Costa.
