Sergio Aguero

Aguero may not have looked particularly sharp on his return from knee surgery last weekend but is fit again. Not only that, he's priced at a modest £10.5m and has a tiny ownership.

The Manchester City striker could be a powerful differential pick if he can hit the ground running quickly. Gabriel Jesus remains sidelined with a thigh problem, meaning there is little risk of rotation.

Andy Robertson

Though now may seem like a bad time to invest in the Liverpool defence following Virgil van Dijk's injury, Robertson's attacking numbers cannot be ignored ahead of two excellent fixtures for Liverpool.

The left-back is offering more of a threat than his heavily-backed team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold and is still £0.4m cheaper ahead of visits from Sheffield United and West Ham.

Ross Barkley

Aston Villa are only top-flight side left with a 100% record. Their early season form has shown little sign of easing up and could extend to a fifth win in five at home to Leeds.

Though Jack Grealish is attracting a lot of attention, Barkley has two goals in two games, is £1.2m cheaper and keeps popping up in encouraging shooting positions in and around the box.

Sergio Reguilon

Tottenham's defence didn't exactly impress in last weekend's collapse against West Ham but that has not stopped many managers taking a closer look at new left-back Reguilon.

The summer signing from Real Madrid notched up an assist in only his second Premier League appearance and looks to provide a lot more attacking threat from the flank than alternative Ben Davies.

Neal Maupay

Maupay can be an extremely frustrating player to own, as he demonstrated with some questionable decision-making in Brighton's strange 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park last weekend.

But as far as budget forward options go, the former Brentford striker remains one of the best. West Bromwich Albion's visit to the Amex is an enticing fixture.
