Newcastle’s recent influx of Frech talent has undoubtedly boosted their potential in terms of fantasy prospects with Moussa Sissoko being a prime example of that, but it is an Italian who is garnering our attention this week as we scout for prospect ahead of round 29.
Alan Pardew’s side looked at one point to be heading down a slippery slope at one point this season, but thanks to a run of games that has seen them pick up nine points from six games their relegation worries look to be easing off.
While they are not quite out of danger yet a win against Stoke this weekend would see them move up to 33 points and help put some distance between themselves and the relegation dog fight.
Santon has been ever present for the Magpie’s this season and it would seem that he is finding form at just the right time in the season as far as fantasy managers are concerned .
With only three clean sheets under their belt this season Newcastle will be keen to get another when they welcome Stoke to St James and considering the fact that the Potter have only managed to score one goal in their last three away games it comes as no surprise that the boast the worst goal scoring record in the league away from home.
Santon’s ability is not only limited to defending as we have seen in recent weeks with three assists in his last four games he also represents a threat going forward for the Toon Army, while Stoke on the other hand can’t seem to stop conceding goals at the moment.
