5 Bargain Buys And Cheap Players To Opt For In Gameweek 5
Ashley Barnes, 6.7 million
With only Sergio Aguero having scored more goals than him in the Premier League since the onset of 2019, the Burnley striker has been in pinch perfect form. And he’s brought the same into the 2019-20 campaign as well, plundering his way to four goals across the four matches he’s doled out his expertise in till now, putting in enigmatic displays infront of the goal.
Placed right in the echelons of shots taken in the 2019-20 campaign of the Premier League, these figures bespeak and exude the immense confidence in the striker at the moment. And with his next two clashes being against Brighton and Norwich City, the Burnley man is someone to definitely placed at the top of your pile for this gameweek.
Mason Mount, 6.4 million
Initially valued at just 6 million, Mason Mount’s ascendancy in Chelsea’s playing 11 has been as unprecedented as it is rampant in nature. Frank Lampard has clearly earmarked him as one of the most promising young players in the side and the midfielder has done everything to repose his manager’s faith in him with the two goals till now.
The performances saw him being picked up for England’s squad as well with him making his debut against San Marino, a match which saw him play with aplomb as he took shots without fear. Although Chelsea play a tricky match against Wolverhampton this gameweek, he is always good for a goal or assist and offers immense value to your side’s midfield.
David James, 6.1 million
His three goals in the Premier League were followed up by a goal in the international matches as well, another player who at just 6.1 million helps free up funds to invest in elsewhere while coming in as someone who can always offer points. Someone to definitely consider if you are looking to pull off a nifty pick, someone whose low ownership also adds as a plus point when selecting him for the imminent gameweek.
Daniel Ceballos, 5.7 million
After the match against Burnley where he registered two assists for Arsenal, the on loan midfielder from Real Madrid has failed to find himself involved in the side’s attacking side of play. It’s not been his fault though with him being played out of position against Liverpool while he was left out as a substitute against Tottenham.
With Arsenal having a massively favourable fixture this gameweek after a spree of two straight tricky matches, Cabellos should be back to operating in his preferred CAM role, one which should see him pick up a solid amount of points. Watford are in horrifying form at the moment, a hastily assembled bunch of players which lead to their manager being removed from his post as well and with Arsenal coming bestowed with an incredible bunch of attacking players, Ceballos makes for a solid proposition to consider.
Che Adams, 5.8 million
A dicey pick with the player still to fully come to terms with the immense level of competitive football in the Premier League but his fixtures and price tag make for two extremely enticing entities. Southampton play against Sheffield United and Bournemouth next, two sides always vulnerable to conceding, teams against whom Che Adams could finally find his grove.
He’s also owned by just a paltry 0.7% and if he decided to explode this weekend, expect him to take your FPL side right to the annuls of standings.
