FPL 2023-24 – Best Mid-Priced Midfielders


FPL managers are blessed with plenty of options in the mid-priced midfielders bracket this season, but who to select in your Gameweek 1 squad? All Things FPL pick out three players to consider.

Eberechi Eze (£6.5m) – Crystal Palace
Eze features in over 15% of FPL squads at present and much of that is down to his excellent end-of-season form for Crystal Palace, where he struck seven times in the final nine league games of the campaign. That form led to Eze making his England debut in May, and he is sure to be full of confidence heading into 2023-24, where Palace open up against newly-promoted Sheffield Utd. Eze had long been on the cusp of being a high-impact FPL asset, and having now made that leap, he looks a tempting purchase ahead of Gameweek 1.

Kaoru Mitoma (£6.5m) – Brighton
Mitoma began last season priced at a mere £5.0m but he emerged as an absolute bargain once he settled into the Brighton side, and he was particularly effective once Roberto De Zerbi took the reigns at the AMEX. With seven goals and nine assists to his name over the course of the league campaign, the Japanese star was a popular selection among FPL managers and, despite a price increase, that is the case once more as he features in almost 40% of all teams at the time of writing. Mitoma is attracting interest from Man City at the moment, but if he remains on the south coast he could prove excellent value once again.

James Maddison (£7.5m) – Leicester
One man who has already made the switch this summer is former Leicester star James Maddison, who will ply his trade at Tottenham this season. The England international was one of the Foxes’ brightest stars in 2022-23 despite their relegation to the Championship, and he reached double figures for goals for the second year in a row. Combine that with 20 assists over the last two seasons, and it’s easy to see why many FPL managers are strongly considering his inclusion. With the likes of Heung-Min Son and (possibly) Harry Kane alongside him, Maddison could post some big numbers on his debut season for Spurs.
