How premium FPL assets have compared in 2019/20

Premium assets are often the ones we build our Fantasy Premier League teams around and generally the players we turn to for captaincy duties.

Their prohibitive prices mean that we can’t own them all at the same time and trying to find the right combination of big-hitters can be key to success in FPL.

With that in mind, we look at some of the most popular and highest-scoring premium assets of 2019/20 in closer detail.

The six leading players for FPL points – Mohamed Salah (£12.7m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), Sadio Mane (£12.5m), Jamie Vardy (£9.7m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) – are all featured, alongside Sergio Aguero (£11.8m).

Which of these players performs better at home? Who is more consistent on the road? And which of our septet racks up the most points against the top-flight also-rans? We’ll attempt to answer those questions and more in our latest Members’ article.

The likes of Harry Kane (£10.8m), Son Heung-min (£9.7m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.8m), who may all be fit by the time the Premier League is ready to emerge from this enforced hibernation, we will study separately over the coming weeks and months as they edge closer to re-entering the Fantasy radar.

    Huge thank you - brilliant entertainment

    Quick question on ticker. Just picked up various Wolves fixtures are red as are some Everton (seems odd given form of last 2 seasons) but Leicester are just about uniform grey.

    Any significance to this?

      The colors are straight from FPL fixture difficulty rating, which is not very accurate. I think Legomané has made a ticker with more customized difficulties

    Will there be player price changes as we transfer them in and out as weeks go on?

    I'm 8th OR after the first 4 games of Virtual FPL, but can't get the Norwich v United game to play. Has it been played ?

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      No, delayed to tomorrow because I ran into a technical issue and didn't want to rush a fix

          Just like pre-season. Every year I think I'm clever getting Chris Wood or something

            Cheer up.

            You could have decided to be clever by keeping 1.3itb rather than getting Barnes in as 5th mid - did nothing in my preseason friendly

    Have not paid attention to any FPL since the league was suspended. Shocking to see that deadlines remained the same for weeks that do not exist. If the league comes back, my season, and I am sure many others, are over. Absolutely shocking.

    1. CroatianHammer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Those deadlines don't change ever. Not with 9 games called off due to weather, not with 6 games off for cup reasons. It's a game, not real life.
      The league won't restart. Bojo saw to that with his herd immunity blather: the UK is a month behind everyone else and I hope all here don't suffer for it.

      But, if it did restart, the real life 'rules' (standards really, not written in stone) would be dispensed with and games would be staggered such that there are games each night. I believe FPL *might* have a rule about GW38 matches in place.

      By the way, I think only one league in Europe (EU27+UK+EEA) has a plan officially voiced to try complete the season? That's here in Croatia. I still think that won't happen either.

        Some Bundesliga teams are in training already.
        Germans handled crisis very well and are looking at finishing their league in May|June.

        “Those deadlines don’t change ever”.... The deadlines do change during the season

      3. ebb2sparky
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Why do people feel the need to make bold statements like "the league wont restart" when they have no clue like the rest of us?

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          It's crazy to think the league won't restart I think. Why would they start a new one without finishing this one first? I know there's a few things to think about but it shouldn't be too difficult. And in relation to FPL, they can just add more game weeks pretty easily.

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            If only life was so simple

          2. ebb2sparky
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            My hope is that it will restart and additional game weeks added but I am biased since I still have all my chips!

    Are Autosubs involved in Virtual FPL Game ? So if a player doesn't play for a single minute ,will the substitute player who has played take his place keeping in place the correct formation of the game ?

    Question on ragabollys game, why in the wolves:chelsea match did Chelsea take off Giroud and Abraham for Kante and Kovacic in the 65th minute when 3:1 down? Seems odd

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      They don't do 90 minutes and Batman was being saved for next GW.

    2. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Thanks for this, I will tweak some parameters accordingly. I thought I have fully taken into account the current result in making subs, but now I know where it could have gone wrong so will update it.

        Hi Ragabolly,

        Any reason the Norwich v Man Utd game wasn't played.
        It said on the site GAME NOT PLAYED YET, 2020-04-11 21:00 BST

        Cheers and thanks for all of the work you've done on this.

        Chelsea's performance/team selection/ subs seemed really poor in the friendlies I practiced with. I tip them to be relegated unless something changes.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          They’re not exactly famous for good decision making In real life though tbf... serving transfer ban for shenanigans, explaining away massive financial losses, huge unamortised transfer costs that will haunt them for the next few years via FFP, letting Willian get to within 10 weeks of contract expiry, letting Solskjær take 6 points off them in the league this season...

          Simulation sounds pretty bang on 🙂

          1. Tambling5
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Well they did beat Wolves 5-2 away in real life, so you weren't 'bang on' there

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I didn’t say I was bang on anywhere though? (Maybe link to where I did though & I’ll have a look & see?)

              I said the simulator sounded bang on 🙂

              Which it does - given Chelsea aren’t exactly famous for decision making in real life 😉

                Very true. Great team, the Wolves, remember seeing Derek Dougan at the bridge in his heyday.

    There is something very wrong with that Virtual FPL game: Pope only got one point.

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      ...mind you that's one more point than the other ten players put together.

    Is there a trick to sorting bench order in VFPL?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Player you take out becomes last sub automatically. So to get player as 3rd sub - put him in side then take him out

      1. HamezMace
        • 7 Years

        Thanks mate.

          Decent enough - 38 from 4. Big excitement though is the VPL table - need to screenshot it really.

          You?

          1. HamezMace
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Very good start.
            Auba captain and Jiminez my only two players so far.

            Unfortunately for me, just like Palace, it’s not about how you start it’s about how you finish!

              Well played

              Slightly cross with myself for axing Jim but on the long run I’m clear Ayew will outpoint him 🙂

    Has anybody else noticed that there of lots of managers that appear to have entered more than one team in Virtual FPL (Luis Garcia, FC 78, Aj etc) ? Surely that gives them an unfair advantage because they will be able to play twice as many friendlies as the rest of us !

    1. Ógie

    I made my team pretty quickly yesterday and couldn't remember if I kept Harvey Barnes. Unfortunately I didn't, I ended up with Grealish.

    But I did go for PvA - what a hero!

    38 points with Vardy (c) and a rank of 245!

    Thanks Ragaboly, a nice distraction and I'm sure we'll talk about it on the Scoutcast 🙂

      Ragabolly has stated "I was thinking of maybe avoiding having DGWs and BGWs for simplicity, so feel free to BB", which I did, so I hoping we don't get any DGW's.

      His injury record is pretty bad. He has 3 or 4 ankle injuries per season now and there clearly an underlying problem there. Spurs should cash in.

      Footballers prices will drop post current crisis but even in the "old world" he wasnt worth that much - injury prone, lacks pace and can't score from freekicks.

        I will shut up if anyone pays over 80mil for him coz I think he is 50mil tops. Can't even dribble.

          Not sure if banter/trolling etc, but not being able to score from free kicks, or lacking pace haven’t stopped him having a prolific goal scoring record both domestically and internationally.

          That’s the ultimate task of a striker, scoring goals, not having a YouTube compilation video of step overs.

          If a club wanted to buy HK this summer he’d be as close to guaranteeing that club a minimum of 25 league goals per season for the next 5 years.
          That return is the reason Spurs have been playing CL football for the last few years, ask them how much money that’s worth when discussing his transfer fee.

          1. Tinkermania
            • 1 Year

            It's true about not stopping him scoring 20+ goals. Many strikers will do when the squad plays to one person's strength. Happened to Zlatan at United. The squad balance pays the price and results in lack of titles. Spurs have looked great when Jane wasn't playing. Think about the run to champions league final last season and the league form this year after he got injured. They only lost to Liverpool, then they started struggling when Son got injured. In other words (imo ) Spurs will be better if he leaves but they won't get over 80million. And it's only Utd that will buy him. City, Liverpool, Barca, REAL, PSG, Bayern, Dortmund etc have styles that won't suit him and many players better than him in those teams.

            1. HamezMace
              • 7 Years

              I’ll agree with you that the styles of the teams you mentioned don’t suit a Harry Kane type of player. There is an expectation to play attractive football with those teams.
              Saying that I’d think he’d do well at Madrid, and Bayern.

              The players who command the big transfer fees now have to offer the commercial benefits of the game too, Instagram following, foreign commercial markets etc. Kane doesn’t really offer that.

              But from a footballing perspective, he puts the ball in the net, consistently, that’s worth a big transfer fee.

              How much did Palace want for Zaha, he’s going to have an amazing YouTube video, I bet Pepe did as well, he was what...90m?
              How much would Maddison and Grealish be this summer?

              In short I agree he’s not worth 200m, but he’s worth more than 50m.

              ...and to the Auba comparison, Kane is 5 years younger? And because he doesn’t rely on pace, he’ll be able to play in the PL for longer than Auba will.

                1 year, 3 months ago

                Similar to Kane’s “international record” (see below) I wouldn’t use his age, or his lack of pace as factors to illustrate his value for money over a signing like Aubameyang

                He would represent one of the worst value signings in world football at the minute - the harsh truth is that he represents an over-priced, over-hyped, under-performing striker dining out on seasons passed who has also developed rather worrying fitness issues

                I hope for his sake he gets back to some semblance of form, but even Mourinho’s insistence on getting the old Kane back fell totally flat within a couple of games he had dropped to being deeper than even Poch played him

                Maybe he’ll undergo a positional conversion & become a central midfielder, but as a striker the game these days is so much more difficult for him

                1. HamezMace
                  • 7 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  I think you’re being quite harsh on him.
                  Up until this season he was remarkable consistent in the amount of games he was playing and the goals he was scoring.
                  Obviously there are big problems at Spurs this season, change of manager, key players leaving, and of course he’s been injured.

                  You have to consider age within transfer value, that’s why 18/19 year old kids are commanding the highest transfer fees because clubs are looking at potential resale. Aubas next move will be his last, and even then he’s got two years in the a top European league tops.

                    The truth is harsh though - you just will never hear it during a match when his every touch is greeted with such warm appreciation from the English media

                    It’s not just this season either - the second half of last season was poor, and the first half of last season was reasonable, but not elite world class striker performance either

                    But it’s equally important to note that throughout this thread - I don’t think anyone is saying he is classically “bad” per se - he obviously is a talented footballer

                    But man alive the hype around him is seriously misguided - and as an investment in today’s transfer market? Forget about it - there’s a long list of forwards you go to before you get to Harry Kane I’m afraid

                    So therefore the way things are going, Man Utd are almost categorically guaranteed to sign him unfortunately for me as a utd fan 🙂

                      • 7 Years
                      1 year, 3 months ago

                      Who would you rather have at Man Utd?
                      Realistically this summer.

                      Top forwards around Europe right now,

                      Mbappe, obviously, but he’s not going to Utd.

                      Barca front three is aging.
                      Greizmann I suppose, but if you’re being critical of players over the last 18 months he’s top of that list.

                      Jovic at Real.

                      Lewandowski, Benzema both coming to the end of their elite level careers.

                      Not sure who else you’d want? Or rather who’s better than Kane.

                        1 year, 3 months ago

                        Aubameyang would be so much better value than Kane it’s not even funny - he’s a better striker now, would be a quarter of the price, and from a succession planning perspective dovetails perfectly with Greenwood turning 22 as Auba is turning 33

                        If they were the same price, I’d go Kane personally, but all about opinions of course.

                        Either way, it’s been nice to talk about football again!

                        Yeah I’m not quite sure where the RVP vector has came in 🙂

                        Maybe to illustrate how signing an older player can instantly galvanise a team to win the league maybe? Not sure...

                        The way Lewandowski is looking after himself he have easily another 3 to 4 years in top football.
                        His current injury is only 2nd in his carrer when he has to pause several fixtures.

                        "You" in response to you in this thread clearly means Utd.

                        He gave Utd one season, papering over the cracks of a terrible squad with major issues.

                        I’ve got to admit, that’s the first time I’ve heard someone call RVP out as a bad value signing for winning the league almost single-handedly 🙂

                        It takes all sorts I suppose 😉

                        Fewer league games, and less cup competitions too.

                        It was a short sighted signing which achieved a short sighted aim and opened the door to endless seasons of mediocrity. Everything the signing represented is just bad for Utd.

                        Fitness is being redefined now though in several cases

                        Arjen Robben got faster in his 30’s rather than slower

                        Vardy had his hottest patch of form at 33

                        Ronaldo is still free scoring at 35

                        Messi still scoring at 32

                        Zlatan still scoring at 54 or whatever age he is now

                        I think we’re about to see a wave of players in their late 30’s still doing all kinds of damage where they would have been retired at the same age 15 years ago

                        To get a league out of that squad was phenomenal - RVP was superb value for money - one of the best investments of €22.5m you will ever see in the game

                    If he was as good as British media say he would be winning trophies with a top team. Mbappe, Ronaldo, Messi, Lewandwoski, the Liverpool forwards, Aguero, Haaland, Grizeman, Suarez etc. Already, 10 players who would command a higher transfer fee than Kane and there is more. Some of them are even a lot older but are ahead of him. I stick with my 50mil.

            Let’s not get too carried away with Kane’s “International Record”

            Call me insane - but I’m not going to put him on a pedestal for scoring 21 goals in 12 games (against Lithuania, San Marino, Malta, Lithuania, Tunisia, Panama, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Kosovo)

            He’s scored 11 goals in his other 33 international games, which have also been against some terrible teams, and have been padded out with penalties, so his international record doesn’t really mark him out as anything special imo

            He had 4 very good goal scoring seasons consecutively between 2014-18, but since then he’s looked underwhelming when he hasn’t been injured - talk of €200m is just silly

            Kane isn’t rubbish, he’s just not world class - Aubameyang for example is a better striker who will deliver more in the next 2-3 seasons for a quarter of that price due to his contract situation

            1. GreennRed
              • 9 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Most strikers international records are boosted by playing poor teams. All about opinions granted. If Arsenal were playing Spurs in a PL decider in 2021 I'd put my money on Kane over Aubameyang to score the winner. Aubameyang scores plenty of goals but I think Kane has a better temperament than him to score decisive goals in big games. Both wouldn't even be in the same conversation as the king Agueroooo! Must look up that vid again 🙂

                I wouldn’t even bring international football into the equation - it’s generally of a shockingly low quality, and to use it as some sort of illustration of Kane’s prowess is futile imo

              Can't argue with any points raised by MAXIMUS as that is exactly what I think. I think current Man Utd is Kane's level. If you ask City to swap Sterling(even with a poor season ) for Kane, I think they would refuse.

              Now that I’ve typed this - I have came to adisturbing realisation

              As a Man Utd fan, it’s basically unavoidable that they will spend €200m on him & be stuck with him lumbering around Old Trafford scoring the odd brace against relegation fodder and the odd penalty against mid table teams in between trips to the physio room for the next 8 seasons 🙂

            Like to think that paying 200m will get you footballer with a whole package not someone who may struggle against organised team when marked and not getting many passes.

            Football is all about opinions and in my opinion based on watching him play in recent years - Harry Kane peaked as a striker and simply isnt worth money being quoted.

    3. GreennRed
      • 9 Years

      Anyone signing him is thinking what he can do when he isn't injured, not what he can't do, which was to carry a poor enough Spurs team, scoring 20 plus goals per PL season. They'll not look at him as being injury-prone but having a poor injury record that they will improve through a better injury prevention program, improved S&C but most of all, if he does get injured, not allowing him return to play until he's absolutely good to play. Levy also partly to blame too for never having a quality 2nd or 3rd striker therefore increasing the chances that Kane returned too early from injury. Plus Kane is a good leader on the pitch, also worth a few quid more.

        Calling a team with Eriksen in midfield poor is a bit of a strech 😉

        Wouldny be suprised if it wss Kane who was pushing for starts after injuries.

        Not many decent forwards would join Spurs knowing that as long as he can run out to the pitch Kane will play.
