FPL prices: Rise no issue for Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool right-back is the joint-most expensive Fantasy defender but The Scout says he remains exceptional value

The Scout assesses the player prices in 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League and what they mean for FPL managers.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m)

The Liverpool right-back has earned one of the largest price rises in Fantasy this season.

Along with his team-mate Andrew Robertson, he is the most expensive defender in FPL at a cost of £7.0m.

That is a climb of £2.0m from his initial value of only £5.0m last term.

Alexander-Arnold, who ended the season at £5.8m, was the top-value outfield player in FPL in terms of points per million, with 31.9.

And he can still provide excellent value again this season.

Reds rivals

The 20-year-old produced one goal, 13 assists and 16 clean sheets over his 29 appearances in 2018/19 FPL.

Indeed, his average of 6.4 points per match (ppm) was ranked third overall among all regular starters last season.

However, both Robertson and Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) offer strong alternatives in the Liverpool defence.

Van Dijk's kinder price tag could be a factor for managers, and he was the only defender to start all of the Reds' 38 matches in 2018/19.

Cherries double up

AFC Bournemouth duo Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser also rise £2.0m in price. 

Now costing £7.5m, Fraser’s seven goals and 14 assists earned him sixth place among FPL midfielders in 2018/19.

Wilson is available for £8.0m off the back of 14 goals and 12 assists.

And the Cherries pair have a fine opening schedule, facing only two of last season’s top six sides in their opening 10 Gameweeks.

Wolves climbing

Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) and Matt Doherty (£6.0m) have also jumped in price after their outstanding seasons for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jimenez started last term at £5.5m and went on to produce 13 goals and 10 assists.

Doherty was initially even cheaper at £4.5m and tallied four goals and seven assists from his role as a wing-back.
