Moussa Sissoko proved just how important the January transfer window was to Fantasy Football managers, says Adrian Houghton
By ADRIAN HOUGHTON
Week 25 did not produce many shocks for Goal.com's Fantasy Football managers, besides the upset on Tyneside.
Moussa Sissoko [£6,870,000] has become a household name in English football almost immediately overnight with his blistering performance against Chelsea.
Touching on last week’s column urging managers to look at where they could benefit from the January transfer window, the Frenchman is a prime example of increasing your scores.
Just 58 coaches drafted the midfielder into their side - a clever and economical decision.
Again, as the latest crop of players begin to settle at their respective clubs, take a moment to troll through the transfer lists to find the next hidden gem.Note this week of action will be extended to accommodate the Liverpool and Swansea game the following weekend.
Moussa Sissoko – Newcastle United (32 points)
What can you say about this man that has not already been covered over the past week? His match-winning brace against Chelsea demonstrated why he is an astute purchase for Fantasy managers – £6,870,000
Jimmy Kebe – Reading (30 points)
Has become an unlikely revelation for the Royals and their remarkable run. A price increase of £6,510,000 since the start of the season is evidence of his positive impact – £10,830,000.
Victor Anichebe – Everton (24 points)
The 24-year-old is finally beginning to produce his best for the Toffees after the club picked him up at the raw age of 15 – £9,190,000.
Aleksander Kolarov – Manchester City (6 points)
The Serbian left-back has been a shadow of his former self this season and is failing to make an impact in the club's indifferent campaign – £6,210,000.
Nikica Jelavic – Everton (4 points)
Is in the worst form of his short career on Merseyside and, after starting in a blaze of glory, the centre forward is lacking heavily in confidence – 6,160,000.
Jonathan Walters – Stoke City (4 points)
Ever since his nightmare day against Chelsea almost a month ago, the forward's performances have continued to plummet. Managers, stay away at all costs – £3,270,000.
