3 players you should keep a close eye on - Fantasy Premier League

My Fantasy Premier League team

The Premier League is back, and with it comes the trouble of creating the perfect FPL team. While I do not claim to be an expert, I believe that I have a great squad this season. I started the season with players like Richardson, Kante, and Mendy which really helped my case. In game-week 2 I had Aguero as captain - this was 40 points alone.

I recently brought in Eden Hazard to my team as I believe the Belgian winger is going to start the next game, and is bound to get goals and assists sooner, rather than later. Alonso is a defensive liability but he gave me a lot of points in game week 2, so simply as a Fantasy Premier league Player, I have no complaints.

In this article I mention 3 players who you should have a closer look at for Fantasy Premier League. I am not mentioning the obvious players like Aguero, Kane, and Salah since everyone is aware of them. I mention budget players who cost less than £6.5 million, but may get a lot of points for your team.

#1 N'Golo Kanté

Huddersfield Town v Chelsea FC - Premier League
N'Golo Kante

Kante is a very good player, but is not usually regarded as a good FPL player. Having said that, he started this season with a goal.

Although one goal does not make a huge difference, it is the fact that Kante is playing an advanced role which makes him a possible buy for FPL. Chelsea line up in a formation which resembles something of a 4-1-2-3.

Jorginho is the deep-lying midfielder, and Kante has been given the license to use his unlimited energy to run up and down. That is probably why he found himself in the box to score from the Willian cross.

Kante is going to start every game for Chelsea, and he costs only £5 million. While there are other options in the same price range, I really think Kante is a good option. Against Arsenal, he had the most touches in the opposition box.

To put that in perspective - he had more touches in the opposition box than Morata, Willian, and Pedro.

If he continues to score or assist, then I would definitely not waste much time in buying him as he may prove to be a good option for a Chelsea player if you cannot afford Eden Hazard. I would also keep a close eye on Jorginho and Kovacic.

#2 Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Fulham FC v Crystal Palace - Premier League
Aaron Wan-Bissaka

At £4 million, the Crystal Palace defender is a must buy. I play the 3-4-3 formation in FPL. This involves having 2 premier defenders, 2 budget defenders and one defender who is just £4 million. Often the defender who is £4 million never plays, and is simply a squad filler.

The English defender started for Palace and looks like he is going to keep Joel Ward on the bench. Added to the fact that Aaron provided an assist and ended up with 12 points. Most fantasy players were regretting the fact that they left him on the bench.

I would buy him immediately , he is a defender who is dirt cheap and is expected to play ninety minutes. He is already selected by 22.3 percent of fantasy players. His price has risen to £4.1 million.

#3 Roberto Pereyra

Watford FC v Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League
Roberto Pereyra

Pereyra was the player who scored both goals for Watford in the first game week. He has always been said to be a very technical player with immense quality, but was let down due to his injuries.

Both of his goals were quite stunning. His first-time volley was probably the goal of the week. His second one was a run from the wing, ending in a clinical finish. Aside from the goals, Pereyra was threatening the entire game, and found himself in goal-scoring positions multiple times.

If Pereyra is able to stay injury free for the season, I expect him to get a lot of points for FPL managers. One should look to get him early before his price rises. Right now he can be bought for £6.1 million.
