With a few hours left before the deadlines is upon us, we scour the market in our search for some overlooked alternatives. This time around we offer a couple of frontmen with enticing home games on their agendas, whilst Liverpool’s young Brazilian is finally delivering the Fantasy returns his displays have more than merited.

Harry Kane

Handed his first league start by Tim Sherwood earlier in the month, the youngster has wasted no time in announcing himself to Premier League backlines. Partnering Emmanuel Adebayor in a 4-4-2 formation, with Christian Eriksen wreaking havoc on the left, Kane has netted in each of his subsequent two appearances, with strikes against Sunderland and West Brom highlighting his predatory instincts in and around the box.

As reports grow of a likely end-of-season departure for Sherwood, the Spurs boss is clearly determined not to bow to pressure from above and is likely to retain Kane in the starting XI for the run-in. With a home game against Fulham up next, supplemented by games against Stoke, West Ham and Villa to see out the season, Kane – priced at a mere 4.4 in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) and 5.9 in the Sky Sports game – could be an ideal acquisition for those looking to free up cash to draft in the likes of Sergio Aguero up top or load up on premium midfielders for the final four Gameweeks.

Loic Remy

Back in full training ahead of Newcastle’s home game against Swansea, the Frenchman looks likely to return to the starting line-up as Alan Pardew attempts to address a woeful run of form. The Magpies have now failed to score in each of their last four matches and, incredibly, have netted once in the last nine games Remy has failed to feature in.

With 13 strikes and a pair of assists in just 23 appearances for the Tyneside team, Remy’s loan arrival at St James’ Park has been one of the few positives in a season that has gradually fallen apart as the months have progressed. Remy also has a home game against struggling Cardiff on his agenda over the next three Gameweeks – offering him the perfect chance to place himself in the shop window ahead of next season.

Available for 7.9 in FPL, 7.8 in the Sky Sports game and 3.0 in the Sun Dream Team, his spell on the sidelines leaves Remy in just 4% of FPL sides heading into tomorrow’s deadline.

Philippe Coutinho

Much was expected of the Liverpool midfielder as the season got underway last August. Suffice to say, it’s mainly been a frustrating campaign for Coutinho – he’s struggled to turn some very impressive underlying statistics into Fantasy points and has been overshadowed by the displays of Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling in the Reds’ midfield.

Over the last few matches, however, the young Brazilian has stepped up in performance and produced some crucial displays for the league leaders. With goals in two of his last three matches supplemented by four bonus points, Coutinho has arrived back on our Fantasy radars ahead of three favourable fixtures in the final four Gameweeks for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Up next is a trip to Norwich, whilst a visit to Crystal Palace and home clash with Newcastle all seem promising for the free-scoring Merseysiders as they look to fire their way to the title. Available for 8.5 in FPL, 7.3 in the Sky Sports game and 3.0 in the Sun Dream Team, Coutinho’s current form suggest he looks a viable option for those looking to freshen up the injury-hit midfield area.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
