Is it time to play the Wildcard chip?
My frustration deepens when players increasingly rise in price and low valued assets continue to deliver big points.
We take a look at four cheaper strikers who made a statement this weekend despite being written off by many managers.
The question is, who do we transfer in?
Wesley Moraes (£6.0m)
22-year-old Wesley Moraes helped Aston Villa to their first win of the 2019/20 Premier League season following a 21st-minute strike against Everton.
The forward registered his first goal for the West Midlands club, claiming all three bonus points and cementing a nine-point haul.
With a Man of the Match performance combined with Villa’s juicy up and coming fixtures, the club record signing a tasty pick.
Selected by 1.6% of teams, Wesley will most certainly be a standout differential.
Next five fixtures: CRY (A), WHU (H), ARS (A), BUR (H), NOR (A)
Tammy Abraham (£7.1m)
After scoring his first two goals of the season in a victory over Norwich, Tammy Abraham will be flooding with confidence.
The England U21 international hit two shots on target in the entire game, both resulting in two well-taken goals, demonstrating how clinical the forward is.
With Chelsea’s No.9 position still in question, Abraham has definitely made a case for himself and looks likely to be Frank Lampard’s first choice.
Next five fixtures: SHU (H), WOL (A), LIV (H), BHA (H), SOU (A)
Sébastien Haller (£7.4m)
Since arriving this summer, West Ham’s record signing Sébastien Haller had made a slow start to life in the Premier League.
Following a Man of the Match performance along with a brace, the Frenchman has been transferred in over 70,000 times since The Hammers’ victory against Watford on Saturday.
Haller’s stats against Watford:
Aerial duels won: 7
Shots on target: 3
Chances created: 1
Including Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson in support, we expect the 25-year-old to increase his tally providing a good run of fixtures coming up.
Next five fixtures: NOR (H), AVL (A), MUN (H), BOU (A), CRY (H)
Thanks to Newcastle’s new £40m man, the Magpies have secured their first points of the campaign during a surprise victory against Tottenham.
The most impressive aspect of Joelinton’s game was his ability to hold-up play and find teammates running into space, demonstrating his potential to create chances and register assists on top.
Scoring his first goal for the club will lift a huge weight off the Brazilian’s shoulders and he will be gleaming with confidence following the outcome of the result.
Next five fixtures: WAT (H), LIV (A), BHA (H), LEI (A), MUN (H)
