Allen remains a bargain buy in Fantasy

Stoke City playmaker could be a vital player in our 2017/18 FPL line-ups as another five prices are revealed

Joe Allen is poised for a second season as a Fantasy Premier League hot property after his price for 2017/18 was revealed.

Last season, the Stoke City midfielder produced four goals in three Gameweeks, sparking a transfer scramble.

Four weeks after a brace against Sunderland, Allen had been snapped up by 710,000 managers.

With a price tag of just £5.5m for the new campaign, we could easily see a repeat once FPL launches this week.

The signing of Darren Fletcher from West Bromwich Albion could free up Allen as an attacking No 10 to deliver another points spree.

Capoue still cheap

Etienne Capoue, last season’s most popular budget player, has also been priced at £5.5m.

The Watford midfielder was part of 1.7million squads by Gameweek 8 after four goals in his opening five matches.

His potential for the new season will depend on what role the new Watford head coach Marco Silva hands him.

Like Allen, he could thrive once more if handed the freedom to raid into the penalty area. 

Tempting Lanzini

Manuel Lanzini is another who will tempt midfield investment.

The West Ham United playmaker stepped up after the departure of Dimitri Payet to supply eight goals and three assists in his second season at the club.

Even if his price has risen from £6.5m to £7.0m, Lanzini will still turn heads as a mid-price selection.

Llorente on the up

Fernando Llorente is the only forward included in Monday’s selection of price reveals.

Debuting at £6.5m last season, no striker offered stronger points-per-million value than the Swansea City man’s 23.2.

The Spaniard’s price has increased to £7.5m after 15 goals and three assists but could still rank among the best mid-price forwards on show.

McAuley rises

Gareth McAuley rounds off the latest price releases.

Famed among FPL managers for his deflected goal at West Ham United in Gameweek 8, the West Bromwich Albion centre-back scored six times in total in 2016/17.

He climbed from £4.5m to £5.3m in price last season, but has been valued at £5.0m for the start of this campaign.

McAuley will vie with team-mate Craig Dawson for the attentions of FPL managers should West Brom again prove potent at set-plays.
