Daniel Sturridge: The England international has always scored goals, and now has two in two for his new club Liverpool. With Brendan Rodgers set to play Sturridge in his favoured centre forward role, the former Chelsea man could prove a bargain at a cut-price £7.3m following a lack of pitch time at Stamford Bridge. What’s more, the Reds have scored 26 Premier League goals against Norwich in 11 meetings, including a 5-2 drubbing at Carrow Road this season. Sturridge’s Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez has scored hattricks in his last two appearances against Norwich so the Uruguayan could also be worth a punt…

Mohamed Diame: Back from injury and still ridiculously cheap at £4.7m, if Diame can re-discover his November to early-December form he could become the bargain of the fantasy season. If you’re lucky, he could also secure a switch to North London before the month is up…

Michael Dawson: Spurs look like they’ll be a permanent fixture at the top end of the league this season, and have shown a little more defensive stability in rceent weeks. That is in no small part due to the revival of Michael Dawson. If the big centre half continues in this form, you could have a regular defender from a top five side in your team for only £4.5m but be warned, the Lilywhites face Manchester United this weekend and ‘Daws’ could have a tough afternoon up against Robin van Persie and co.

Southampton players: Think long and hard about moving some Saints’ stars on, even the impressive Rickie Lambert. The South Coast side has been plunged into uncertainty today following the shock sacking of popular gaffer Nigel Adkins. History shows that, more often than not, supporter unrest has negative effects on the pitch. Take a bit of profit where you can…
