No other newly promoted defender would have picked up more Ahmed El Mohamady, Aston Villa: £4.5m, 36 points The former Sunderland and Hull defender made eight assists last season – more than any other newly promoted defender He also scored two goals for Villa, which would have been worth a total of 36 FPL points El Mohamady made 52 key passes – those that lead to a goalscoring opportunity – according to whoscored com , which is the highest number of any defender who’s been promoted. James Chester, Aston Villa: £4 5m, 30 points The Welsh centre-back scored five goals for Villa last season, the highest of any defender out of the three promoted teams He didn’t record any assists though, so he would have picked up 30 goal/assist FPL points Max Aarons, Norwich City: £4.5m, 30 points Six goals and two assists for Aarons would have picked him up 30 FPL points last season He also made 31 key passes. Ben Godfrey, Norwich City: £4.5m 30 points Four goals and two assists for Godfrey would also have been worth 30 FPL points Godfrey only made eight key passes though. MIDFIELDERS Emi Buendía, Norwich City: £6 0m, 76 points Buendía notched up 12 assists for the Canaries last season – the most of any newly promoted player The Argentine also bagged eight goals, meaning he would have scored an additional 76 FPL points from goals and assists The midfielder’s 91 key passes last season suggests he’s likely to grab plenty of assists this time round as well Sheffield United’s Oliver Norwood is the only newly promoted midfielder to have made more key passes ni 2018/19 (97) Conor Hourihane, Aston Villa: £6.0m, 73 points Jack Grealish may have attracted more media attention last season, but Hourihane out-scored and out-assisted him Eight goals and 11 assists would have earnt the Irish international 73 FPL points Mario Vrančić, Norwich City: £6.5m, 71 points The Bosnian is the most expensive of any of the newly promoted midfielders He scored more than any of the others though, 10, and assisted another seven. Those goals and assists would have picked him up 71 FPL points Vrančić only made 28 key passes though, which is fewer than any of the other midfielders featured in this article Onel Hernández, Norwich City: £5.5m, 67 points Eight goals and nine assists would have earned Hernández 67 points last season That’s only four fewer than Vrančić who costs a whole £1.0m more. Marco Stiepermann, Norwich City: £5 5m, 63 points Stiepermann’s nine goals from midfield last season is second only to Mario Vrančić Add to that his six assists and the German would have picked up 63 FPL points. John McGinn, Aston Villa: £5 5m, 62 points John McGinn has become the subject of recent transfer speculation linking him to Manchester United The Villa midfielder scored seven and assisted nine in the Championship last season Those goals and assists would have been worth 62 points in FPL. Jack Grealish, Aston Villa: £6 0m, 51 points Grealish is the star of the Villa team, something that’s reflected in his price tag However, statistically he was outshone by both of his midfield teammates Conor Hourihane and John McGinn in 2018/19 Six goals and seven assists are not to be sniffed at, and they would have been worth 51 FPL points – 22 and 11 points fewer than Hourihane and McGinn respectively though However, what the stats don’t show is who will be able to make the step up to the next level the best, and his price suggests that the bods at FPL favour Grealish Jota, Aston Villa: £6.0m, 48 points Jota made 11 assists for Birmingham City last season but only scored three That means he would only have picked up 48 FPL points for them. Anwar El Ghazi, Aston Villa: £5 5m, 48 points Six goals and six assists would have been worth 48 FPL points. FORWARDS Teemu Pukki, Norwich City: £6 5m, 140 points The Finnish striker scored an impressive 29 goals and made eight assists last season It’s unlikely that Pukki will match those kind of numbers this season, but if he does then he’ll pick up 140 points for them Billy Sharp, Sheffield United: £6.0m, 104 points Sharp scored 23 goals for the Blades last season as well as making four assists If he can repeat that this time round then he’ll rack up 104 FPL points. David McGoldrick, Sheffield United: £5 5m, 72 points McGoldrick scored 15 goals last season and set up another four. That would have been worth 72 FPL points – 32 fewer than Sharp Perhaps it’s worth splashing out the extra £0.5m then.
