Watford FC v Brighton & Hove Albion - Premier League
Pereyra has been a great budget option at the start of the season

Midfielders in the FPL have started stronger than the strikers in terms of points return. This is in keeping up with last year when the top points scoring charts were filled with midfield options.

Having led to a lot of midfield heavy teams, the choices available to Fantasy managers too are plenty. August offered many such options, both budget and premium.

The compilation is based on the upcoming fixtures, the form of the players and their team while also their ability to start each game.

Honorary mention: Roberto Pereyra who has been great but unfortunately goes into a tough run of fixtures.

Here are the best available midfield options for September


Mohamed Salah (£13) - Liverpool

Liverpool FC v West Ham United - Premier League
How do you keep Salah out?

Had to start off with the Liverpool's star man. Mohamed Salah is a must have irrespective of the fixture list and the difficulty of the opponent. He has started the season in prime fashion and looks to have another tremendous season in the Reds shirt.

The only reason why managers must not have the Egyptian is his high price tag. Otherwise, there is no real reason to keep him out of your team.

Liverpool does have a difficult run of fixtures coming up in September though. They play Leicester, Spurs and Chelsea away while in between there is a game against Southampton at home.

Salah will give a decent amount of points irrespective of the games and a top midfielders list just couldn't be completed without including his name.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£7.1) - Arsenal

Arsenal v Chelsea - International Champions Cup 2018
Mkhitaryan is the one to watch from Arsenal

Having got their first victory of the season after a couple of tough opening fixtures, Arsenal would look to continue their momentum as they head into much easier opponents in September.

Mkhitaryan is priced at a mid-range in midfield and provides good value for money when you take into account his attacking threat. Having started on the right of the front three in his opening games, he has also drifted inward to play behind the striker at times. This gives him a good chance at registering goals as we saw in the match against Chelsea.

Arsenal play Cardiff and Newcastle away as their next two, before hosting Everton and Watford at home. All four are winnable fixtures and promise a lot of goals.

Mkhitaryan is one of the cheapest forays into Arsenal's unsettled attack. He is one of the few who is guaranteed to start and looks to be a really important player for Arsenal this coming season.
