Transfer Round Up - Mid-table edition

Amongst the Higuains, Rooney’s and Suarez’s, it is often easy to overlook the smaller transfers flying around. And yet we see, time and again, players from the smaller clubs become some of the most coveted in the league. Imagine picking up the likes of Michu last season. I had him in my sights before somebody else drafted him in and every single Michu goal last season hurt me deeply.

Here is a transfer round up focussing on mid table clubs

Arouna Kone

During the 2012/13 season, Kone produced 13 goals and 7 assists for a struggling Wigan side. Having started all but two games, expect him to be a regular for Martinez’s Everton side. In terms of fantasy football, Kone provides a strong option as a secondary or third choice striker. He is a regular starter, was NOT booked throughout last season and offers a strong physical presence. Along with some sharp finishing ability, we can expect him to blossom from the better supply of balls he will get at Everton. He is a hidden gem that requires a close eye during the draft.

Swansea City - Arsenal (28.09.2013) / WON

On Who Will Score?

Bet Prediction: Over 2.5 (odd - 1.75, Bwin)

This is an interesting one because Swansea are on a great run. They drew with Liverpool and finished that game really strongly, got a great result in Valencia in the Europa League and then went to Palace and won easily.

Arsenal have lost only two of their last 21 Premier League games. (W16, D3, L2). Despite their good start, Arsenal have only kept one clean sheet in five league games so far. Mesut Ozil has created more chances (10) in two Premier League games than any Manchester United player has done all season.

Swansea have scored two or more goals in three successive Premier League games for the first time since December 2012.

I think it's sufficient for an Over 2.5 prediction.
