Kurt Zouma, Chelsea – £4.6m
The youngster has started each of Chelsea’s last three home games in the league,
Marc Muniesa, Stoke – £4.4m
In the midst of Stoke’s current spate of defensive injuries, Muniesa would appear to be a good bet to start away to shot-shy Aston Villa this weekend.
Caution advised: this will be Tim Sherwood’s first game as Villa manager, so beware the potential ‘new manager bounce’.
UPDATE: He’s injured, don’t do it.
Joleon Lescott, West Brom – £4.9m
Managed by Tony Pulis. First-choice pick. Playing away to a Sunderland side that just lost 0-2 at home to QPR. Due a goal. Y’dig?
John Stones, Everton – £5.2m
Firmly entrenched as a first-choice player in the Toffees’ resurgent back line, who play at home to bottom-of-the-table Leicester on Sunday.
