Joseph Gomez, Liverpool – £4.5m
The young left-back was handed his debut in the opening day 1-0 win at Stoke and even claimed an assisted for Philippe Coutinho’s stunning late winner.
Bournemouth at home awaits in Gameweek 2, and the Cherries failed to score at home to Aston Villa in their own opener.
Luke Shaw, Man Utd – £5.5m
Looks set for a productive season from left-back as part of a defence that kept an opening day clean sheet at home to Spurs and can be confident of claiming another at Aston Villa.
Matt Targett, Southampton – £4m
Played 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw at Newcastle, so if he starts again at home against an unconvincing-looking Everton then he’s fantastic value at such a low price.
Craig Dawson, West Brom – £5m
It’s hardly a straightforward fixture, away to a newly promoted Watford side that’s coming off the back of a 2-2 draw at Everton, but any defender in a Tony Pulis side who poses a threat from set pieces has to be a decent shout in a game like this.
