Fantasy Premier League: Best Budget Picks For Matchday 8 Featuring Sunderland And Stoke Stars

With the wait for the Premier League almost over and the wretched International Break break left behind, we can look forward to another game week of heartbreak, broken friendships and emerge at the end of the action with a new outlook towards life. No, we are not discussing 12-year olds reacting to the Twilight series but 15-80 years old FPL managers for whom a Wildcard does not imply a contestant gatecrashing a reality show, but a sweeping change to a Fantasy team which he had previously messed up.

With our weekly transfer deadline fast approaching us, let us take a quick look at 4 budget picks for this game week who have dropped in a little promise to us miserly managers of delivering handsome returns.



The Bournemouth custodian will look to shake off the extra fat he had acquired over the last 15 days and take his place between the sticks. The Cherries, helmed by the impressive Eddie Howe, will be welcoming a Hull City outfit who have the third worst shots in the box tally on the road this season which bodes well for the Bournemouth backline. A shut-out is a shout away it seems at the Vitality this weekend. (!)


Patrick Van Aanholt (5.0)

A 5.0 priced defender is not necessarily categorised as a budget defender especially when he is a Black Cat! But with the ship sinking fast, there is only one way for Moyes to go and with Van Aanholt’s offensive ability seemingly too important to ignore, we seem to have on our hands an out of position prospect here. After coming off the bench last match, an assist or another goal can surely be a part of out wistful thinking.


Manchester City v Stoke City - Premier League


Known in some circles as a poor man’s Ibrahimovic, the Stoke attacker has been actually poor this season. But we at T4O believe the time has come for the Austrian to add to his solitary goal this season. Sunderland at home, with Ibrahimovic in his description. Captain, anyone??



A couple of goals and an assist in under 300 minutes of Premier League action and 5 goals overall, Austin is threatening to replicate his form with QPR in the League from last time out and we couldn’t be more pleased. The 27-year old will be lying in wait at the St.Mary’s for a Burnley outfit who have little to offer themselves. Southampton have been slowly settling into a rhythm and goals galore is expected.
