Onwards, then…

Aaron Cresswell, West Ham United – £5.5m

West Ham are at home to bottom-of-the-table Leicester this weekend, and Cresswell’s extra added attacking threat makes a potentially fruitful addition of him.

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

With QPR at home to low-scoring West Brom on Saturday, their South Korean full-back looks tremendous value at such a paltry sum as £3.9m.

Ben Davies, Tottenham Hotspur – £4.4m

Grabbed an assist in the 2-1 win at his former club Swansea, and if he’s now first choice ahead of Danny Rose then that’s a bargain price – hard to say how this weekend’s game at home to Burnley will go, though, what with Spurs’s wretched home form.

Filipe Luís, Chelsea – £5.3m

Started ahead of César Azpilicueta for the 2-0 win over Hull and offers more of an attacking threat – if he is indeed set for a run then it could be a good idea to get him in while he’s cheap.

Stoke away on Monday night is no easy game, mind.
