This can be a good sign that the players were close to returning. FPL managers are always on the lookout for assets that could potentially return in the future. This could help with that.
Newcastle’s impressive season continues and one player is consistently standing out. Defender Kieran Trippier (£6m) sits as the highest scoring player in his position whilst also the second highest scoring player in FPL.
