Levitate’s Players to watch for January (4 gameweeks being played)
Matt Doherty – Wolves – Defender (£5.2m)
Doherty has played in all 20 of Wolves games this season. He has scored 3, assisted 4 and had 5 clean sheets. He is currently the 5th best defender based on points and at only £5.2m he is outperforming more expensive options. Wolves face; Crystal Palace (H), Man City (A), Leicester (H) and West Ham (H) in January.
Roberta Pereyra – Watford – Midfielder (£6.3m)
Out of the 20 games he has been involved in, Pereyra has 6 goals and 4 assists. He is outscoring the likes of Bernando Silva and Son who are significantly more expensive. Watford face; Bournemouth (A), Crystal Palace (H), Burnley (H) and Tottenham (A).
Danny Ings – Southampton – Forward (£5.2m)
Despite an injury hit season, Ings has scored 7 goals in the 14 games he has played. Southampton have changed their manager recently which usually leads to a change in form. At only 5.6m he is a cheap option to have. Southampton face; Chelsea (H), Leicester (A), Everton (H) and Crystal Palace (H).
At the start of the month I suggested 3 players I thought would have a good December– let’s see how they got on;
|Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)||2pts||DNP||DNP||DNP||11 pts||2 pts||15 pts|
