Onwards, then…

Paul Dummett, Newcastle United – £4.2m

With only one goal conceded in their last five games, Newcastle can be hopeful of keeping their good run going at injury-hit West Ham this weekend.

Not an easy one, mind, especially with ex-Magpie Andy Carroll back up front for the Hammers.

Patrick McNair, Manchester United – £4.4m

United play at home to struggling Hull this weekend followed by a midweek game at home to Stoke, so don’t discount successive clean sheets.

Neil Taylor, Swansea City – £4.7m

Anything could happen when the Swans welcome Crystal Palace this weekend, but a Swansea clean sheet is an entirely conceivable outcome.

If Kyle Bartley keeps his place in the side then he’s great value at just £3.9m.

Kieran Trippier, Burnley – £4.8m

With back-to-back wins under their belts, Burnley will be confident of another at home to shot-shy Aston Villa this weekend – and Trippier has an assist or two in his locker to boot.

Yun Suk-young, Queens Park Rangers – £3.9m

QPR are at hometo a desperately out-of-form Leicester this weekend, making potentially outstanding value of their South Korean left-back.
