There are a few players who can score big points but have very low ownership.
The start of the Premier League is just a few weeks away and FPL managers are lining up different drafts for the opening gameweek. Last season’s highest point scorers Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Heung-Min Son are some of the most expensive players in the game. West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen scored 206 overall points last term, making him the 4th highest point scorer last term. His price rose from £6.5m to £8.5m this term.
Tino Livramento started the 2021-22 season as a fairly unknown player to the football world. But he ended the season with 28 appearances in the Premier League and recorded 1 goal and 2 goals. The right-back was priced at just £4m at the start of the 2021-22 season and racked up a total o 80 points despite missing a chunk of the season due to injury.
This season yet again there are a few hidden gems in the game. Here are five hidden gems you should know about in FPL 2022-23:
5. Dominic Solanke (AFC Bournemouth) – 6m
Dominic Solanke does not quite have a successful track record in the Premier League but he did score 29 goals in the EFL Championship last term. The 24-year-old striker lead the line in brilliant fashion as he spearheaded his team to a 2nd place finish in the Championship and promotion to the Premier League. Solanke could be a great option if he can continue his form in the Premier League this term.
4. Leon Bailey (Aston Villa) – 5m
Bailey moved to Aston Villa last term from Bayer Leverkusen. But his first season in the Premier League was rather disappointing and hampered by injuries. The winger recorded 9 goals and 9 assists in the Bundesliga during the 2020-21 season. This dropped to just 1 goal and 2 assists in 18 league appearances in the league last term. If Bailey can put his injury issues behind him, with just under 1% ownership he could be one of the big differentials.
3. Michael Olise (Crystal Palace) – 5.5m
The young French winger is one of the brightest prospects in the Premier League currently. The 20-year-old was slowly introduced to Premier League football as he moved from the Championship to the top flight. He still managed to record 2 goals and 5 assists despite making most of his appearances off the bench. But as things stand, he looks very nailed on to start as the right winger for the Eagles next season. Currently, he has just 1% ownership in the game.
2. Neco Williams (Nottingham Forest) – 4m
Djed Spence was a revolution in the right wing-back slot last term and played a massive hand in Nottingham‘s promotion to the Premier League. But he returned to his parent club Middlesbrough at the start of the season and is now close to joining Spurs. The club have signed Neco Williams from Liverpool for a fee close to £17 million. Williams is available at just 4m in the game and on top of that, he would be playing as the right wing-back. If all things go to plan, the Welsh right-back could end the season with a decent return to his name.
1. Andreas Pereira (Fulham) – 4.5m
Fulham‘s new signing Andreas Pereira is available at just a 4.5m price tag. Pereira enjoyed a very decent loan spell last term with Brazilian side Flamengo. The 26-year-old ahs been bought in to replace the outgoing Fábio Carvalho. On top of starting the majority of the league games, the midfielder can provide some decent attaching returns. He looks like a great bench and rotation option for FPL 2022-23.
