Gather round, fantasy freaks – our Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 10 midfielders round-up is here to help all your fantasy football fantasies materialise!

Our tips are based on FPL player prices, but the principles should apply more or less across the board – so even if your fantasy football game of choice lies at Sky Sports, the Telegraph, the Mirror or anywhere else for that matter, you should still read on.


Right, get a load of this merry bunch…

Alexis Sánchez/Theo Walcott, Arsenal – £10.4m/£9m

There are few more valuable commodities in fantasy football than a midfielder who weighs in with a striker’s goal return, especially if it’s that of a prolific striker.

Two more goals at Sunderland took Sánchez onto five for the season, while long-term injury absentee Walcott returned to the bench – keep an eye on how likely he is to start at home to lowly Burnley on Saturday.

David Silva, Manchester City – £9.1m

City have looked better of late with one up front and Silva in the number 10 role, a notion emphasised by his Messi-esque strike in the 2-1 defeat at West Ham United.

It’s not unreasonable to expect plenty of goals in this weekend’s Manchester derby at the Etihad, and Silva’s well capable of both finishing and creating.

Sadio Mané, Southampton – £6.9m

With two goals and an assist for Mané from only four appearances, it’s not just Dušan Tadić that’s making waves in Saints’ midfield.

Away to Hull City is a tough fixture but if both sides go for the win then it could be surprisingly full of goals. With that in mind, consider also Hull’s £5.5m Mohamed Diamé.

Chris Brunt, West Bromwich Albion – £5.4m

It’s four assists in five for the Baggies midfielder going into this weekend’s game at struggling Leicester City, so you could have a bargain on your hands here.

Pretty much any Chelsea midfielder

They’re at home to QPR, whose away form can only really be described as ‘wretched’. Expect the likes of Cesc Fàbregas, Eden Hazard, Oscar and André Schürrle to fill their boots.

Good luck and happy selecting!
