With Gameweek 10 almost upon us, we will take a look at 4 players in each position who are a likely source of points from the upcoming round of fixtures. With heavy hitters like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sergio Aguero faltering in recent weeks, guaranteed points are somewhat hard to find now given the resilience shown by teams throughout the league.
But we believe the following players are capable of cushioning the blow of the loss of form of our fantasy darlings.
LEE GRANT (4.1)
The bargain Stoke custodian has given returns of back-to-back clean sheets and has emerged as a surprising option between the sticks. But his price tag aligned with a visiting Swansea City side who seem to be focusing more on their defence under Bob Bradley bodes well for a third consecutive shut-out. Sigurdsson’s penchant for long-range shots has the potential to translate into save points for the veteran goalkeeper as well.
HECTOR BELLERIN (6.1)
With the precious bucks saved in the goalkeeping slot, we indulge ourselves in the 6.1 priced Arsenal right-back. Two assists and three clean sheets in his last four league games propels him in our thoughts as the Gunners travel to the Stadium of Light looking to heap more misery on the hapless Black Cats. With only 4 goals mustered on their home turf, Bellerin is a good shout for a clean sheet as well.
ALEXIS SANCHEZ (11.3)
We dwelled on Theo Walcott but Wenger’s ominous statements about the Englishman’s dodgy hamstrings made us go for the more expensive option. Sanchez has suffered in recent weeks but his away form makes him an enticing option for the Sunderland fare. Sanchez has already notched three goals and two assists on his travels at Watford and Hull City and we are putting our money on another similar display. The Chilean has retained 23.9 % which will likely see a spike if he hits the bull’s eye against David Moyes’s men.
TROY DEENEY (7.1)
After a significant outlay in defence and midfield, we have dug into the budget strikers and have struck potential gold in the form of Troy Deeney. Although the 8.7% owned forward has failed to net in back-to-back road trips, he boasts far better form at home and has scored in his previous two at Vicarage Road. His penalty taking duties added to Hull City’s awful away form makes us hopeful of a handsome haul from the striker.
