The millions of Fantasy Football players across the UK and beyond will either be looking to consolidate upon the success of the first half of the season or else tear up their team sheet in a bid to improve their fortunes going forward. Whichever category you fall into, these five players could your team to climb the leader board without breaking its bank.

Alphonse Areola (4.5)

While recruiting a goalkeeper from a team in the relegation zone might not seem like a sensible proposition, it should be remembered that Fulham have tightened up defensively in recent weeks. As well as holding Tottenham and Liverpool to impressive draws, they’ve also recorded clean sheets against WBA, Brighton and Southampton. At £4.5m, therefore, Areola is a snip.

Rob Holding (4.5)

One of the biggest beneficiaries of Arsenal’s resurgence over the last month has been centre-back stalwart, Rob Holding. Holding has been a near ever-present in the Gunners’ backline this season and has enjoyed particularly encouraging form of late, picking up four clean sheets and four bonus points in his last four outings.

Ezri Konsa (4.7)

After nearly succumbing to relegation last season, Aston Villa have been the surprise package of the league this time around. No-one has embodied that resurgence more than their backline, who have held firm to ensure Dean Smith’s men have the second meanest defence in the league behind Manchester City. With two goals and four bonus points, not to mention five clean sheets, Konsa is the ideal option for capitalising upon that new-found defensive steel.

Emile Smith-Rowe (4.5)

Another Gunner to benefit from the remarkable turnaround overseen by Mikel Arteta at the Emirates, Emile Smith-Rowe has showed a great understanding with his fellow youngster Bukayo Saka. While the latter might have stolen the headlines with his three goals in five games, those strikes wouldn’t have been possible without Smith-Rowe, who has set up four goals in his last five starts.

Tomas Soucek (5.3)

After netting three times in 13 Premier League games last season, many observers thought that Soucek wouldn’t replicate that goalscoring prowess against this term – especially as he nominally operates as a defensive midfielder. Keen to prove the doubters wrong, Soucek has surpassed his 19/20 tally already, scoring five times in 15 games. With 79 points so far, he’s ahead of big hitters like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Riyadh Mahrez and Paul Pogba so far.
