There’s plenty of choice across the price points for midfielders in Fantasy Premier League.
It’s the Fantasy Football Community bringing their midfielders roundup of articles, videos and tweets for your Fantasy Premier League Tips.
Premium options top the list in my latest article over on Betfair. Mo Salah takes the headlines, but it’s the Manchester City midfield that creates the most headaches. De Bruyne, Sterling or Bernardo?

In a very popular Twitter thread, Olsen previews our mid-range midfielders. There’s plenty of statistical analysis in here to get the brain cells buzzing and there’s a touch on similarly priced forwards too.
In this thread, I will compare the most attractive £6.0 – £7.0 midfielders and attackers.
I'm going to consider them from this:
1️⃣- Last season (stats)
2️⃣- Team and fixtures
I will also make a personal conclusion. Hope you like it:)!

FPL Physio is tipping a Brighton pick with very low ownership who was off the radar last season. However, a new manager and a nice run of opening fixtures could pave the way for great things from Pascal.
Pascal Groß found his way into my #FPL team this morning.
~ Uber differential (0.3%). 👀
~ Great fixtures… wat, whu, sou & bur first 5 GWs. 👌🏼
~ FKs & corners = guaranteed assists with Dunk & Duffy. 😎
Plagued by injuries last year but the season before he was class. 🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/sZ8n7IK5Vq

Nick from Who Got The Assist? is tipping another lowly owned midfielder. This premium option has the pedigree to produce big points scores and is nailed on to feature against Aston Villa in Gameweek 1 with Son suspended.
There seems to be a lot of hype about Harry Kane and fitting him in as a 11m differential against City/Pool players for GW1. Moura is being overlooked. 7.5m mid that finished strongly with hat tricks against HUD and Ajax. Son suspended so will start GW1. Great way for Spurs cover pic.twitter.com/g2LjcwnLAS

Chelsea could be revitalised under their new manager Frank Lampard, and Ben Dinnery brings important injury news for us. FPL favourites Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi could be in contention to start the season.
And sticking with Chelsea.
Hudson-Odoi (Achilles) is hoping to be available for the start of the new campaign….
Already back in light training and doing some ball work…

Leicester have a real buzz about them this season, with Rogers at the helm and some great new signings making them a fantastic attacking prospect. Neil Murray has discovered a bargain in their midfield.

It’s Wolves man, Dendoncker, who has all the traction this pre-season for being the best £4.5 million midfielder in the game. For any not convinced, FPL XI brings all of the key statistics.
I think people are overlooking how good a choice Dendoncker is. He isn’t just a #FPL bencher.
In 2019 for Wolves.
▪️Played 17/18 games.
▪️Highest xG behind Jimenez and Jota – 4.17
▪️xGI/90 of 0.35
▪️Defensive Ruben Neves behind
▪️0.5 Shots in penalty area / game
▪️0.5 SoT/game pic.twitter.com/VPgKCpGdqG

There’s plenty of FPL managers considering some lower priced midfield options, particularly when VAR is in town. The FPL Prince is backing West Ham’s captain and penalty king, Mark Noble.
If you're looking for a £5.0M midfielder then I think Mark Noble is probably the answer…⚒
1️⃣ – 5 Goals
2️⃣ – 5 Asissts
3️⃣ – 7 Clean sheets
4️⃣ – On penalties
Penalties are the key for him! ⚽️ #FPL

Fantasy YIRMA have the big preview on some high profile midfielders signed for Chelsea and Spurs this pre-season. They are already making their mark and could be great value in draft formats too.

Manchester United’s new acquisition, Dan James, is one on the watchlist of FPL Partridge. It’s his pace that makes him very appealing, looking to exploit the high playing full-backs that many teams set up with.
If I’m dabbling in the 6m midfielder market (yarmolenko, trossard etc), then I’m very tempted to go for Dan James. That pace will definitely catch out a few teams this season. Especially as full backs are so attacking. https://t.co/FVvjiT2esy

Fantasy Football Scout’s Joe completes the midfielders special with a look at Jorginho. He could be set for a more advanced role in Frank Lampard’s selection, plus he’s on penalties!
Last season Fraser was the key to my first wildcard. A 4th mid who was cheap and pointsaholic.
