Managing the money you have to play with in Fantasy Premier League can be taxing.

There’s nothing worse than falling 0.1m short of buying a player you want while there’s something very unsettling about having too much in reserve when it could be invested in your squad and translate into points.

All over the pitch, there is value for money available. For every premium asset, there is a more than useful budget option.

Here, we pick the best premium and budget assets for Gameweek 30.

GOALKEEPERS

Premium – Alisson

Liverpool would’ve been unhappy with a draw in the Merseyside derby given their title ambitions but for Alisson it was a fourth clean sheet in a row and his 17th of the season. Burnley certainly pose a threat with Ashley Barnes and Chris Woods in attack but the Reds should dominate proceedings at Anfield.

Budget – Lukasz Fabianski

Only United, City and Liverpool have conceded fewer goals than West Ham (4) in the last five GWs. Fabianski has been in top form this season and faces a Cardiff side that’s scored just six goals this year – only Huddersfield have managed fewer.

DEFENDERS

Premium – Andrew Robertson 

Virgil van Dijk has been Liverpool’s most impressive FPL asset in recent weeks but Burnley should be smart and equipped enough to guard against his aerial threat from set-pieces. With Sen Dyche’s side likely to sit deep, Robertson’s overlapping runs may be needed to bear fruit. The left-back has managed three assists and four clean sheets in the last four GWs.

Budget – Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Wan-Bissaka was back from injury and back amongst the points last week with an assist to his name. Brighton have created just 11 big chances in 2019 and facing their attack at home could see Palace pick up a clean sheet.

MIDFIELDERS

Premium – Raheem Sterling

A 5-0 thumping at Anfield in GW28 will still be fresh in the memory for Watford and City will want to make no mistake after leapfrogging Liverpool in the title chase just last week. Even though Sterling is yet to rediscover his early season form, he’s consistently created plenty of chances from open play. He’s also managed two double-figure hauls in his last five starts and remains the second-highest scoring player this season with 177 points so far.

Budget – David Brooks

It’s been a tough run for Bournemouth. They’ve faced Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and City in their last six games. Their fixtures look great now though, starting with Huddersfield away. Brooks returned to the fold last week and will hope to add to his six goals and four assists this season.

FORWARDS

Premium- Sergio Aguero

Aguero enjoys playing at home and will certainly get chances when City welcome Watford to the Etihad. Gabriel Jesus is peering over his shoulder but Pep Guardiola won’t want to risk this advantage over Liverpool slipping. The Argentine should start. He’s blanked just twice in his last 10 starts, bagging two hat-tricks in the last five GWs.

Budget – Joshua King

With four goals in the last seven games of a tough run of fixtures, King has impressed in Callum Wilson’s absence. The England international is a doubt for this weekend as well and King will relish the opportunity to be the focal point of Bournemouth’s attack once more, this time against a leaky Huddersfield defence.
