FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 8 Midfielders


With the latest round of Premier League games over, it’s time to highlight an assortment of midfielders, who could end up being lucrative Gameweek 8 assets from an FPL perspective.

After finding the net for the sixth time in four Premier League appearances, the popularity of Heung-min Son (£9.3m) is likely to soar once again ahead of Gameweek 8 as Spurs travel to Luton. The Hatters have picked up just one point so far at Kenilworth Road this season and conceded an average of two goals per game. It would be no surprise if Son was afforded plenty of joy and the same can be said for fellow attacking midfielder James Maddison (£7.9m), who has picked up two goals and four assists already this campaign.

Liverpool assets could be high in demand after their controversial defeat away at Spurs last Saturday, with Jurgen Klopp’s men likely to be extremely fired up and ready to take their frustrations out on Brighton in Gameweek 8. The Seagulls shipped six goals away at Aston Villa last time out, so it bodes well for Mohamed Salah (£12.6m). The Egyptian international’s run of gaining at least one attacking return each gameweek was broken in Double Gameweek 7, despite his assist for a legitimate Luis Diaz (£7.5m) wrongly ruled out for offside. Diaz is another midfielder capable of a big Gameweek 8 haul on his day and is due a significant return soon having not recorded an attacking return since Gameweek 2.

Pedro Neto (£5.6m) continued his dream start to the campaign in Double Gameweek 7, bagging another attacking return, making it six for the season and 38 fantasy points. You have to go back to Gameweek 2 for the last time Neto scored lower than 4 points in a gameweek, so he is well worth bringing in ahead of Gameweek 8 and Wolves’ home clash with Aston Villa.
