Sead Kolasinac ($7,200) Arsenal- Five assists in little minutes. Takes advantage of every second on the field. Expect him to move forward often on the attack.
Alonso ($8,600) & Emerson ($7,500) Chelsea- Just look at their Logs. These Defensemen that can hold their own.
Alex Iwobi ($9,100) Arsenal- May get a chance to finally shine if he’s in the lineup due to Mkhitaryan being out.
