Read on, fantasy heads…

Dušan Tadić, Southampton – £7.6m

A goal and four assists in the 8-0 win over Sunderland earned the Serb a whopping points haul of 23 in Gameweek 8, so he’ll be flying going into this weekend’s home match against Stoke City.

Christian Eriksen, Tottenham Hotspur – £7.8m

The Dane’s fierce drive in Spurs’ 4-1 defeat at Manchester City was his third goal in five games, a nifty vein of form to be taking into this weekend’s game at home to struggling Newcastle United.

Having popped up in some good positions and been unlucky not to score himself, his young team mate Ryan Mason could be a bargain at just £5m.

Ross Barkley, Everton – £6.7m

Returned from his injury lay-off with an assist for Romelu Lukaku and an impressive showing in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

Caution advised: keep an eye on Thursday’s Europa League tie in Lille for an indication on whether or not Barkley will start at Burnley on Sunday.

Mohamed Diamé, Hull City – £5.5m

It’s four goals in five games for the Senegalese since his move from West Ham United, so he could conceivably cause problems for Liverpool’s shaky defence on Saturday.

Gylfi Sigurðsson, Swansea City – £6.8m

With the Swans at home to Leicester, they’ll be looking to their Icelandic playmaker to continue an impressive start to the season that’s already seen him rack up six assists and a goal.
