The Usual Suspects or some fresh blood, which Premier League football midfielders make our top 5 this week? Gameweek 35 saw some stellar performances from the likes of Josh King and Pedro as the two continued their strong seasons. Will the two continue to make our shortlist?
Picking your Fantasy Premier League or daily fantasy sports midfield won’t be easy, but that’s why FantasySports.co.uk is here.
FPL Gameweek 36 top 5 midfielders
Josh King – Bournemouth
Total FPL points: 164; GW 35: 11 points
Josh King is playing out of his skin for Bournemouth. In his last 12 gameweeks, King has totalled 97 points. That’s just over eight points a match.
Bournemouth have three fixtures left this season and the first sees the Cherries clash with Stoke at home. A home fixture against Burnley will follow before an away trip to Leicester.
King is one of the top Premier League football midfielders on the market right now. Just £6.2 will land him.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Swansea
Total FPL points: 170; GW 35: 10 points
Gameweek 35 was a return to form for Gylfi Sigurdsson and Swansea are in desperate need for the midfielder to put in a big points effort against Everton this weekend. If he doesn’t, the team could just about be relegated.
Sigurdsson scored 16 points in the last two matches which saw the Swans take four points from six.
Swansea’s fixture list isn’t that difficult for a team staring relegation in the eyes. Sigurdsson could lead Swansea to Premier League football salvation.
Eden Hazard – Chelsea
Total FPL points: 207; GW 35: 5 points
Sure, Eden Hazard only tallied five points in gameweek 35 against Everton, but I am all for going heavy on Chelsea’s top stars for the rest of the season.
Chelsea are marching toward the Premier League football title, and the team have a rather easy route to the end. Draft Hazard to score, assist and play outstanding football for your FPL team.
Dele Alli – Tottenham
Total FPL points: 205; GW 35: 8 points
Personally, I love Dele Alli and what he brings to my FPL team. Just once in his last nine gameweeks has Alli tallied fewer than six points. That isn’t a bad run for the Spurs’ ace.
Tottenham kick off the weekend’s fixtures on Friday against West Ham. Alli only played 23 minutes the last time the two sides met. The title race is nearly over, but Spurs are still going strong and hope to get some help from the rest of the league in catching Chelsea. If you don’t have him in your team yet, what are you waiting for?
Pedro – Chelsea
Total FPL points: 145; GW 35: 10 points
Can’t afford Hazard? Already have him? Might we suggest Pedro?
The Spaniard tallied 10 points last weekend against Everton as he continues his strong play in 2016-17. Although he only scored three FPL points last time against Middlesbrough, he should improve on the mark in gameweek 36.
At only £6.8, he is the second cheapest player of FPL’s top 11 midfielders. The only midfielder that will cost you less is King. Both are worth a selection.
