It's time! For the final time in 2016, we do the Premier League Daily Fantasy Spotlight. For a Premier League fan this is the best time of year, we have games coming fast, and for these clubs, it's time to close out a pretty crazy year in and out of the Premier League. All of these players are from the Saturday, December 31 fixtures.
Virgil van Dijk (D): Southhampton F.C. - 4,000
Virgil van Dijk and Southampton go up against West Brom in what will be a defensive match with not many goals. This is perfect match for your defender to be apart of. To make matters better he is also very dangerous from set pieces like we saw against Tottenham. Southampton as a whole have a top five defense in the Premier League and since they are home I see West Brom sitting back which won't make Van Dijk, and the backline of Southampton have a rough 90 minutes. I see this game ending low scoring which is why for 4k, you need him.
Junior Stanislas (M): A.F.C. Bournemouth - 6,900
It's been a tough campaign for Junior Stanislas; he has been plagued with injuries which have been a huge blow to Bournemouth. Now they go up against the dead Swansea City where Junior is going to have a big game. Junior last year played great against Swansea as Eddie Howe used him as their "point guard" as every attack went through him. I see this being the case again as I think him and Bournemouth both are going to be happy after this match as I belive they will win.
Stanislas's game vs Swansea last season (ended 2-2)
Diego Costa (F): Chelsea F.C. - 9,300
After a one-match suspension, Diego Costa is back. Which means, he needs to be the first man on your team sheet. Costa has been amazing this season as he leads the Premier League in goals. With Chelsea being dominant at home this season and now they go up against Stoke City who is just average away from home, this can get really ugly for the Potters. Costa is straight up been the best player this season and to not pick him would be idiotic.
