Make your fantasy football fantasies come true with the help of this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 17 midfielders round-up.
Recommended selections this week include players from Newcastle, Bournemouth, Man Utd and Arsenal.
Aaron Ramsey/Theo Walcott, Arsenal – £8.1m/£8.3m
Both players are back in the side following injury lay-offs and both were involved at the business end in the 2-0 win at Aston Villa, Ramsey scoring and Walcott winning the penalty for Olivier Giroud’s opener.
Each are currently available at reduced prices, but expect Ramsey’s to rise this week in the wake of back-to-back goals. Home to Manchester City is a big game, but then Ramsey and Walcott are big game players.
We’d mention Mesut Özil but frankly you should have him already.
Joshua King/Junior Stanislas, Bournemouth – £4.6m/£4.2m
The two goal-scorers against Man Utd have each been in fine form of late – King is a midfielder playing up front, which is fantasy football gold, while bargain basement Stanislas has 3 goals and an assist in his last 4 games.
Away to West Brom is no easy fixture but the Baggies haven’t been as defensively tight recently as they were earlier in the season. Furthermore, they’ll be expected to attack Bournemouth, leaving gaps for the Cherries to potentially exploit.
Georginio Wijnaldum, Newcastle – £6.9m
All 7 of his goals so far this season have come at St James’s Park, so you’d have to back him at home to bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa.
Marouane Fellaini, Man Utd – £6.2m
Scored and picked up 2 bonus points in the 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth, and given the extent of United’s injury crisis they might have to rely on him again at home to Norwich on Saturday.
Good luck and happy selecting!
