With no Premier League football to prepare for this weekend, these are the players that you should consider owning and selling in the long term.
Paulo Gazzaniga (Tottenham)
Despite Tottenham’s horrible form, Gazzaniga is worth getting in as a bargain first-choice goalkeeper (£1.6m) for a Big Six team.
Liverpool’s Adrian is the only cheaper option to have made a Premier League appearance, while the Argentine’s first game as Hugo Lloris’ replacement will be against Watford, where odds of suggest he is likely to keep a clean sheet.
Spurs go to Liverpool the week after that, but upcoming home matches against Sheffield United and Bournemouth – when his side will be a similarly short price to keep a clean sheet – offer a good chance of more points.
Even if the move doesn’t pay off, then at least you will have saved plenty of money to spend elsewhere.
James Maddison (Leicester)
Maddison’s goal at Liverpool on Saturday was his second in two Premier League appearances.
Although he is expensive, you don’t want to be leaving out a player in such good form ahead of an excellent run of games.
Leicester play just one Big Six team in their next nine matches – a home game against Arsenal that they may still be favourites to win.
Should that form continue, then his odds to score – and price – will be in line with more glamourous midfielders such as Bernardo Silva and Christian Eriksen.
Tammy Abraham (Chelsea)
Abraham is now consistently priced up at around evens to score in the Premier League, and that could shorten even further during the coming weeks.
The 22-year-old has scored eight league goals in his last six matches, while his next four games are against Newcastle, Burnley, Watford and Crystal Palace.
Most appealing about Abraham is his price tag. At £2.3m, he is the 25th-most expensive striker on the game, despite being the top points-scorer by 14.
Lucas Digne (Everton)
The most expensive defender that doesn’t belong to Liverpool or Manchester City has been a disaster since Game Week 2.
Everton haven’t kept a clean sheet since that 1-0 victory over Watford, conceding at least twice in five of their six subsequent league games.
The Toffees haven’t scored from a set-piece yet this season, so Digne’s attacking threat hasn’t been up to much, either.
They are unlikely to prevent any of West Ham, Brighton or Tottenham from hitting the net in their next three matches, and have a horrible run of fixtures in December, so get rid while you can.
Bernardo Silva (Man City)
Since scoring a hat-trick against Watford in game Week 6, Bernardo has played 40 minutes of Premier League football in Man City’s subsequent two matches.
He is never among City’s likely goalscorers in terms of odds, so the unreliability of his selection means you should sell him for the foreseeable future.
The Portuguese is the fourth-most expensive midfielder on the game, and that money can be better spent elsewhere.
Harry Kane (Tottenham)
It’s time to free up the funds that you’ve invested in Kane.
The England captain is always an odds-on bet to score at home to inferior opposition so, if you take the plunge, it might mean hiding behind the sofa when he takes on Watford in Game Week 9.
But after that Spurs’ fixture list is not kind, with games against Liverpool, Everton, West Ham, Manchester United and Wolves in their next five away matches.
That’s hardly a run of matches that justifies owning the second-most expensive player on the game.
