Having spent the last two days looking at both Goalkeepers and Defenders the next stop in our series of articles dedicated to the Unlimited Transfer week eye’s up the prospects of a rare number of midfielders our coaches have highlighted for big things to come over the final third of the season.
With midfielders seemingly running away with the show in terms of fantasy points returned versus their attacking counter parts the middle of the park has become a hot bed of discussion and not ones to be left out of the conversation our coaches here in “The Managers Office” have weighed up their midfield options according to form and fixtures to bring you a guide to those midfield mystro’s you should be considering for your fantasy premier league team.
Gareth Bale (Tottenham) £5.4 Million
Having gone through somewhat of a dry spell during December and January Bale’s new role in “the hole” seems to have done wonders for his fantasy potential. Since his move into center of midfield which see’s him sit in just behind the striker he has grabbed four goals in his last three games and in truth could have probably had more if his virtuoso performances were rewarded accordingly.
Juan Mata (Chelsea) £5.3 Million
Due to a hectic summer of football with the Spanish national team Mata’s start to the season was a spectacular failure in terms of fantasy returns but after being rested in round 4 he has gone on to play some of the best football we have ever seen from him.Since round 4 Mata has only failed to produce either a goal or an assist in six games including substitute appearances which is an amazing stat given his managers love for rest and rotation.
Moussa Sissoko (Newcastle) £3.6 Million
The 23 year old has played for France on 5 occasions and also has Champions League experience under his belt too and looks to be a stylish box to box midfielder who can play both in a defensive role and also more attacking if required.It is this attacking role that has seen Sissoko excel over recent weeks.
Theo Walcott (Arsenal) £5.2 Million
After a somewhat indifferent start to the season that saw Walcott make a solitary start in the first 10 games he has gone on since then to produce either a goal or an assist in all but two of the games he has played in, which for a midfielder who was not particularly known for his goal scoring ability is rather impressive.
