Andriy Yarmolenko (West Ham) – £6.0m

The Ukrainian winger has quietly come back from a long-term injury and been an absolute star for the Hammers.

He’s already got three goals this season and looks like he’ll be contributing to plenty more across the 2019/20 campaign.

His upcoming fixtures are promising too with West Ham’s next big test coming in late November.

Fikayo Tomori (Chelsea) – £4.6m

Having impressed since his introduction to the Chelsea first-team it’s no surprise to see FPL managers jump on the hype train quickly.

He’s a bargain price and now very likely to remain a starter for the foreseeable future as Frank Lampard places his faith in the Blues’ academy starlets.

Like West Ham, Chelsea now have a good run of games until the end of November and he could really make a mark, even if it’s from your bench.

Jorginho (Chelsea) – £5.0m

Last season, his deep-lying playmaker role saw him ineffective in FPL but he’s beginning to breakout under Lampard too.

He’s now confirmed as the club’s penalty taker and already has two assists to his name this campaign, despite not notching a single one last term.

He’s dirt cheap and only owned by around five per cent of managers – get him before everyone else does.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) – £11.0m

An expensive signing but right now he’s a must-have.

The Gunners ace is getting a lot of game time due to Alexandre Lacazette’s injury and now has five goals in his last four games.

He’s also accumulated 10 bonus points which has been a real boon for his owners.

Three home games in their next four fixtures should boost his chances of scoring, with Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, and Wolverhampton Wanderers a kind run of games.

Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – £11.6m

On a similar theme to Aubamenyang, Mane might be a big price but he’s in good form and it’s hard to ignore him.

What’s makes it better is he’s only owned by around 21 per cent of managers making him an expensive differential.

With Kevin De Bruyne injured, the Senegalese ace may well be the man to take over in your team in midfield.
