With Gameweek 12 just a few days away, we look at players who can stretch your budget and hopefully bring in some points too. We look at "Form", "Average Points Per Match","Goals Scored","Assists","Clean Sheets","Influence","Creativity","Threat","Passing Accuracy","Tackles Won" and "Bonus Points". Our Gameweek 12 choices are as follows:
DEF : Phil Jones (MUN) - £5.5m
This highly talented defender has really peaked this season and its no surprise that he has provided 8 clean sheets and been an instrumental piece in the Man United Team. Averaging an impressive 5.4 points per match and raking up 8 bonus points which currently is tied with David De Gea as the most in the United side. With a 92% passing accuracy and 70% of his tackles won, Jones is very influential at the back and holds the United defense together. Some favourable fixtures are on the horizon and United face Newcastle this week at home, where Old Trafford seems to be returning to a place of fear, with no premier league side managing to score pass United this season at home. With Phil Jones in the United defense, Jose Mourinho's bus seems to be a triple decker. Definitely worth an inclusion!
MID : Ruben Loftus-Cheek (CRY) - £4.5m
Showing tons of ability and looking to impress his parent side, Chelsea, Loftus-Cheek can be an option should you be looking to find a hidden gem in the pack. Yet to make a major impact thus far, Loftus-Cheek has an 84% passing accuracy and has won 70% of his tackles. His skills are worth noting, and has played for the English national team from u16 level. With the next 8 fixtures being very critical as Crystal Palace face sides which fall outside of the Premier League Big 6, this could see them kick-starting their season. It would come as no surprise if this attacking midfielder builds up enough momentum to see his season pick up and get some much needed points.
FWD : Glenn Murray (BRI) - £5.8m
Taken just 7 shots this season, with 5 being on target and 4 resulting in goals, Glenn Murray is making Brighton a force to be reckoned with. Raking up 6 bonus points in the process, Murray seems to have a good playing relationship with Pascal Gross and together they are causing problems to their opponents defense. The next 6 fixtures are tricky with Brighton alternating between "easy" and "tough" fixtures, so it would be wise to rotate him should you decide to bring him in your side. This week they face Stoke at home, and its worth a mention that Stoke have conceded 11 goals whilst playing away. This could play right into the hands of Murray who would relish the opportunity of getting his name on the scoresheet!
