Fantasy Premier League Tips: Midfielders for Gameweek 29


Drop


Dusan Tadic

Remember him? The Serbian who strenuously bagged in assists in the opening half of the season, especially four assists against Sunderland in the 8-0 riot. He was labelled as the best bargain signing of the summer plus constantly had been compared to Cesc Fabregas. However, since the 17th of January, Tadic hasn’t contributed a goal or an assist for the team, resulting in limited playing minutes too. Evidently, Southampton are struggling to find the back of the net, as once again Saido Mane huffed, puffed and scuffled for a late winner against Crystal Palace at St Mary’s last weekend. Well, Mane could be rewarding for the dream team but not his teammate who only played 31 minutes in the match. If this Sunday, Tadic gets the nod, he will face the likes of Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas as well as Hazard, could be an ordeal afternoon for the confidence-hit midfielder.

Punt


Ander Herrera

The Spaniard was nominated as Manchester United’s Player of the Month for February after handful of fascinating performances. Herrera has the ability to run the midfield, demands for the ball at all possible opportunities and never hesitates to try long-range strikes, no wonder he is adamant on filling Paul Scholes void. On the other hand, he was completely inefficient in the FA Cup quarterfinal defeat to Arsenal plus did not make it to the second half, as Van Gaal had enough from the former Athletic Bilbao player. The 25-year old isn’t a player who has earned a sure-starter identity at Manchester United, well under the new boss nobody seems to besides David De Gea. This Sunday, Old Trafford welcome the spirited Spurs who have couple of strong contenders in midfield. Herrera and United need to jostle away their downfall in the FA Cup and attach full focus on Mauricio Pochettino’s team.

Hot


Jordan Henderson

The Kopites were very much worried on who would be the next Steven Gerrard as he departs from Anfield coming end of the season. Striking wonderful long-range goals and fantastic all-round midfielder, Henderson has been grabbing the headlines in recent weeks. The former Sunderland man is part of an energetic plus accelerating midfield that easily holds possession and creates openings for the attackers upfront. Undeniably, the skipper’s armband pumps an extra gusto for these commanding performances! Liverpool will travel to the Liberty Stadium, which could be a tricky match, yet analyzing the Reds’ league form, mission should be accomplished. Henderson, who is never short of running, could find the back of the net this weekend too.
