Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2013: Highlighting Top Bargains for Week 6
Points are power, and in the cutthroat world of fantasy football, squeezing the most talent out of your pennies is the only route forward.
As ever, next weekend’s Premier League fixtures offer up their customary sample of potential point-grabbers as managers worldwide look to find the edge over their rivals.
Even if there’s not a lot of money in the bank, that doesn’t mean you can’t command some of the most financially efficient stars of the English top flight.
Read on to find out which Week 6 picks are worth low-cost risks.
Price: £4.7 million
Opponent: Crystal Palace (H)
Having conceded just two goals in their five Premier League games so far this season, Southampton’s defence is among the most stubborn in the division.
Although attack has been Crystal Palace’s better aspect in recent weeks, the Eagles nonetheless pose a smaller risk to Luke Shaw being denied a fourth clean sheet of the season.
According to Squawka, the English youngster has created six scoring chances from full-back in his four outings, showing off his ability to get up and down the left flank in expert fashion.
With a wealth of firepower available to get on the end of that supply, Shaw has the potential for assists at St. Mary’s this weekend and is likely to yet again show value for his very reasonable price tag.
Price: £5.1 million
Opponent: Newcastle United (H)
In his most involved Premier League season to date, Ross Barkley has wasted no time in showing that he is indeed ready for the harsh demands of the English top flight.
Saturday’s comeback win over West Ham saw the starlet grab two assists in the 3-2 victory over the Hammers, where Barkley looked to be a consistent source of ammunition for his side.
The Toffees have unearthed an unreal bargain in managing to bring Romelu Lukaku to Goodison Park on loan, a player with whom Barkley has the potential to form a devastating relationship.
Next weekend brings the challenge of Alan Pardew’s Newcastle, who leaked no less than three goals in their defeat to Premier League new boys Hull City last time out and might ship more goals in Merseyside.
Price: £5.3 million
Opponent: Arsenal (H)
Although Swansea may not head into their Arsenal fixture as favourites, that doesn’t mean that the Swans’ playing staff don’t have a grand chance for points on offer.
Arsene Wenger’s men have kept just one clean sheet so far in their domestic campaign and will see Wayne Routledge striving to ensure that remains the case next weekend.
At the Liberty Stadium, Routledge will be one of those looking to exploit the Gunners full-backs, with Kieran Gibbs and Bacary Sagna having their share of shaky moments in defence of late.
Routledge notched his first assist of the term in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out, and with Pablo Hernandez coping with a hamstring injury, he could be one of the players who benefits most from Michael Laudrup’s expansive midfield system.
