Whom to invest in?

  1. Jarrod Bowen - Jarrod Bowen has been instrumental in West Ham's recent success. He bagged four assists in his last two matches. He has assisted an incredible 12 goals and has scored three more, making him an FPL favorite. With a worth of £6.7 million and a total of FPL 99 points, he is a reasonably priced player as compared to his superb returns. Position - Midfielder, Value - £6.7m
  2. Manuel Lanzini - Lanzini has played very few minutes this season but he has already delivered brilliant outputs in FPL. He has scored four goals and assisted one more as he gradually secured his place in the starting eleven this season. In his last match, he scored two goals and secured an incredible 15 FPL points to the delight of his backers. Position - Midfielder, Value - £5.8m
  3. Tomas Soucek - Soucek has had a relatively quiet season so far but his reliable presence in the midfield supplemented their attacking charge ahead. His attacking role will increase now as Benrahma will be out for international duty, possibly making Moyes push Soucek forward. FPL managers should expect big returns from him in Benrahma's absence. Position - Midfielder, Value - £5.7m
  4. Michail Antonio - Antonio has been absolutely sensational this season. He is leading West Ham's attacking charge ahead, and therefore he guarantees you FPL points in the form of goals and assists. He has scored an incredible eight goals and has assisted six more, scoring a total of 92 FPL points and he is just getting started. Position - Forward, Value - £7.8m
