FPL 2018/19 : 5 Premium Strikers to watch out for

The big guns, the ones that burn a hole in your FPL budget but the ones that help you gain those bragging rights! It’s important to keep these FPL point magnets in your team but equally important to manage the overall balance of your team by keeping at least one of these strikers. We look at 5 Premium strikers to watch out for this season.

  1. Harry Kane (£12.5m – Tottenham Hotspur)

Heading into the new season Harry Kane must be on cloud nine with the English forward enjoying a great World Cup, scoring 6 goals in Russia & winning the Golden Boot. His  2017/18 season with Tottenham wasn’t that bad either with Kane scoring 30 goals in the league and finishing the Second top scorer in the league. Though a bit expensive, keep in mind that he is also on penalties and does not miss the target often.

  1. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m – Arsenal)

The Gabonese International joined Arsenal in the January transfer window of 17/18 and was an instant fan favourite. 10 goals in 14 appearances for the Gunners, he had a solid pre-season as well and would love to continue the good form under new manager Unai Emery.

  1. Sergio Aguero (£11.0m – Manchester City)

The Argentine was on the scoresheet twice against Chelsea in the Community Shield & looks really sharp ahead of the new season. If Manchester City are to defend their Premier League crown, they’ll be really dependent on Aguero in the upcoming season. The forward scored 21 goals in the 17/18 season & assisted 6 times in just 28 appearances, proving what damage he can do when he is on song.

  1. Romelu Lukaku (£11.0m – Manchester United)

Lukaku scored 4 goals at the World Cup for Belgium as they finished 3rd. Strength and pace is not something that all forwards posses but the Belgian is an exception. Having proven himself with West Brom and Everton in the Premier League, his debut season with the Red Devils was a substandard one with Lukaku now looking forward to

  1. Roberto Firmino (£9.5m – Liverpool)

Firmino’s price tag is a little cheap as compared to other Premium strike options which make him an obvious FPL asset. Known for making smart runs inside the box and cheeky finishing, Firminho’s return of 15 goals and 8 assists for the Reds fetched him a total of 181 FPL points, more than justifying his price tag. He recently scored a goal against Napoli in the preseason friendly and would be high on confidence going into the first match against West Ham United.
