Fantasy Premier League tips: The transfers you should make in Gameweek 2

first_img 10 10 IN: Graziano Pelle (Southampton) £8m – The Italian striker appears to have put last season’s barren run well and truly behind him and some decent fixtures are coming up for the Saints. After facing Everton they’ll play promoted sides Norwich and Watford and he could well knock a few more goals home. 10 IN: Matteo Darmian (Manchester United) £5.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The Italian was one of the most impressive debutants of the opening weekend and is likely to keep hold of his starting spot with the Red Devils. Their next three fixtures are Aston Villa, Newcastle and Swansea so he should get a few more points from these clashes. 10 OUT: Romelu Lukaku (Everton) £8m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The Toffees didn’t exactly put in a confident display against Watford as they drew 2-2 and although the Belgian got an assist after laying on Arouna Kone’s goal, he’ll be facing Southampton, Manchester City and Tottenham over the next three games. Wait until he gets an easier run of fixtures to bring him in. OUT: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) £5.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – Arsene Wenger has revealed the right-back missed their defeat to West Ham with a slight muscular injury. He also said it would only be ‘a question of days’ before his return but we reckon he’ll stick with Mathieu Debuchy for their away clash with Crystal Palace. IN: Jefferson Montero (Swansea City) £6m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The usually unflappable Branislav Ivanovic really struggled up against the outrageously fast winger last weekend, so he could really punish an attacking full-back like Newcastle’s Daryl Janmaat this time out. Barely one per cent of players have the Ecuadorian so you’ll be a step ahead of your mates and he’ll then face the leaky looking Sunderland after battling the Magpies. OUT: Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace) £6m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – He only came off the bench as the Eagles beat the Canaries 3-1 on the opening weekend as he regains fitness. They play Arsenal in gameweek 2 so perhaps it’s best to let him regain form before picking him for your side. IN: Adrian (West Ham) £5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The Spaniard was in sensational form as he helped the Hammers dent Arsenal’s Premier League title bid on the opening weekend. He was a colossus between the sticks and made six saves earning himself two extra points to boost what was already a huge score thanks to a clean sheet and three bonus points. The Irons take on Leicester City this weekend and could well keep another clean sheet, despite the Foxes’ rampant display against Sunderland. 10 The Fantasy Premier League is underway but the opening gameweek wasn’t a classic with low scores across the board.The average manager landed 34 points while one lucky punter managed to rack up a sensational 109, although they did use their triple captain chip on Yaya Toure.Now though comes the time for a tinker. Did you pick a dud who didn’t start or did your goalkeeper (we’re looking at you, Thibaut Courtois) land you in trouble?If so, it’s probably wise to use your first free transfer to right the wrongs of the opening weekend and here at talkSPORT we’re going to try our best to advise you.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might want to think about above by clicking the right arrow… 10 10 10 10 OUT: Daley Blind (Manchester United) £5.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – Having a player the Fantasy Premier League consider a midfielder playing as a defender for his club is a bad sign. Blind got just three points last weekend despite getting a clean sheet at centre-back against Spurs. Turf him out. Fantasy Premier League transfer tips – OUT: Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea) £5.5m – To find out who you should bring in, click the arrow above – A huge number of players opted to start with the Belgian but he’ll now be suspended for the Blues match with Manchester City. If you haven’t got a decent back up it might be wise to swap him out for one week so you can keep the points ticking over. 10 IN: Ashley Young (Manchester United) £6m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – It took an impressive Kyle Walker display, own goal aside, to keep Young quiet as the Red Devils beat Tottenham. It’s unlikely the confident English winger will be kept under wraps so well in the coming weeks. Aston Villa, Newcastle and Swansea will do well to limit him over the coming games. last_img
