Although his side found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreline, Forest’s main man (£5.7m) shined for the second week running, assisting and converting from the penalty spot with ease to secure a tidy 12 points.
The attacking midfielder is a criminally cheap and great option, especially with ties against the likes of Everton, Fulham and Wolves on its way. If you’re in need of a low-budget midfielder who’s capable of returning pointsconsistently, he’s definitely the way forward.
Watchlist: Ones to Watch
Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon (£5.9m) was certainly a key piece in an emphatic 4-1 win over Chelsea, in which the winger scored and assisted to ensure 3 points for The Magpies. Don’t be surprised to see some returns, even in spite of his dicey upcoming fixtures.
Similar can be said for Alexander Isak (£7.4m), who finished comfortably for Newcastle‘s first of the game. And despite the Swedish star recently finding himself on the sidelines with injury, I’m confident that we’ll see the forward retain hisscoring form from the weeks prior.
After having a shot cleared of the line against The Gunners, Bryan Mbeumo (£7.0m) looks set to end his three-game goal drought with an upcoming tie at home to Luton. The watchlist regular has shined throughout the season so far, and in terms of his fellow midfield options, only trails behind Salah (£13.0m), Son (£9.7m) and Saka (£8.7m) for points. Combine this with Brentford’s promising run of fixtures, and it’s fair to say that The Bees talisman is sure-fire shout moving forward.
Final Thoughts: Kelleher to Start?
It’s still hard to say for sure, but if Alisson (£5.6m) is out for the foreseeable future, backup option Caoimhin Kelleher (£3.9m) could find himself in a favourable situation. Liverpool face Fulham, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace in their next 3, making Kelleher a must-have if their current number one is to be sidelined.
