DEFENDER: Laurent Koscielny – £6.0m (Home v West Ham)
Arsenal continue to have their frequent uncertainties at the back, but one of the consistencies is usually Laurent Koscielny.
The Frenchman has really upped his game in the past couple of seasons to become a real fans’ favourite at the Emirates, where all of his three league goals have come this season ahead of the visit of West Ham.
MIDFIELDER: Jason Puncheon – £5.6m (Home v QPR)
He’s played every minute of Crystal Palace’s last 11 Premier League games, and winger Jason Puncheon will again be crucial as the Eagles welcome QPR in Saturday’s early London derby.
After recently becoming the first ever Palace player to register three assists in the same game in the recent win over West Ham, Puncheon will be looked to to provide the creativity for Alam Pardew’s team, and he could well provide it.
FORWARD: Jermain Defoe – £5.7m (Home v Aston Villa)
The next four fixtures look crucial to Sunderland’s hopes of staying up, and so the investment they made in Jermain Defoe could well stand or fall just by what happens in them.
The English forward will be charged with scoring the goals to get his side out of trouble, and although Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa will have been buoyed by their FA Cup heroics, they are still in deep trouble in the league.
THE OUTSIDER: Andrej Kramaric – £5.5m (Home v Hull)
Time is running out for club record signing Andrej Kramaric to inspire Leicester to beat the drop, and this weekend’s fixture at home to Hull would be a pretty good time to really get going.
The Croatian has just one league goal to his name but a winner here would be priceless, and ahead of a decent run of fixtures he could be worth gambling on.
THE CAPTAIN: Diego Costa – £10.9m (Home v Southampton)
Depending on other results this weekend, the trip to Chelsea might prove to be the final nail in the coffin for Southampton’s top four hopes, and when there are nails in coffins to be hit then you can expect Deiego Costa to be around.
The frequent sinner will be fired up to face the Saints, and he can pick up yet more valuable points in a season which has been full of them.
