Now dig our striker recommendations…

Robin van Persie, Manchester United – £12.6m

Yep, he’s back alright – sell the house, do whatever it takes, just get him in your side. Doesn’t matter who he’s playing.

Charlie Austin, Queens Park Rangers – £6m

Will be back from suspension at home to West Brom this weekend, so it’s worth noting that he has five goals and two assists from his previous four games at Loftus Road.

Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur – £5m

Starting to translate his Europa League form to the Premier League, making the Spurs front man a bit of a bargain going into Saturday’s game at home to Burnley.

Andy Carroll and/or Diafra Sakho, West Ham United – £7m/£5.8m

The pair ran riot in West Ham’s previous home game, a 3-1 win over Swansea, so they’ll be confident going into this weekend’s game at home to bottom-of-the-table Leicester.

Papiss Cissé, Newcastle United – £5.8m

Pops up with crucial goals from the bench, so he’s a good horse to back in Sunday’s Tyne-Wear derby at St James’s Park even if he doesn’t start.

Wilfried Bony, Swansea City – £8.6m

Bony’s goal in the 1-2 defeat to Spurs was his eighth in ten games, taking his price up by £0.2m, so you might want to think about bringing him in before it leaps even further.
