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 Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

🌟 Stuart Armstrong SOU, £5.5m

Ended last season with regular goals and assists, and his opening fixture – away to Crystal Palace – is one he scored in back in January.

🌟 Dele Alli TOT, £8m

Son Heung-min might feel like the safer pick, but for a million less there’s a gamble to be had on a fit and firing Alli rediscovering his form of a few years ago.

If he does, he’s got a tantalising fixture list to start with: home matches against Everton, West Ham, Newcastle and Brighton are four of his first seven games.

🌟 Diogo Jota WOL, £6.5m

Back to being listed as a midfielder this season and potentially a bargain if he can get back to his best – and at only 23, time is on his side.

It’s not certain if he’ll start though, and if he misses out then £5.5m team-mate Daniel Podence is one to watch.


The £5m West Ham man is shaping up to be a popular pick, but he’s currently self-isolating and could miss the game against Newcastle.
