4 fantasy football bargains that your mates don’t know about

Charlie Austin

Sadio Mane? Gone.

Graziano Pelle? Gone.

Replacements? None.

Charlie Austin will be Southampton’s main man leading the line, and has got to be good for 15 goals this season.

Steve Mandanda

Quite a coup for the Eagles, with the £1.5million signing of the ‘keeper from Marseille. And considering that, outside the top six, only two teams conceded less than Palace last season. Mandanda will offer a decent alternative to all your pals being bland and going for David de Gea.

Antonio Valencia


Wait! Don’t cast those insults just yet! Jose Mourinho deals in defensively resolute teams, so if you couple that with the fact the former Wigan Athletic player is down as a defender with his attacking instincts, you should be racking up the clean sheets and assists.

Max Gradel

A big money signing for Bournemouth last season, but the long-term injury curse struck the Cherries on a regular basis, and they were robbed of the former Leeds United man for most of the season. However, fresh from a solid pre-season and a new four-year deal, the tricky winger should be on the end of a few goals and assists this campaign.
