Attacking Midfielders keep on going up!

Updated: Feb 3, 2020

The new PB matrix suits midfielders and forwards better than defenders and this has impacted the market with defenders increasing in price the least since the start of this season. The below table illustrates how many times each position has ranked within the top 50 PB scores for the 2019/2020 season so far.

PB scores from the start of the 2019-2020 season up until 25/09/2019

It is no surprise that we have seen the most creative attacking midfielders rise recently. Below is a table showing the prices of some attacking midfielders that have risen over the last 3 months, all of these players have hit some high PB scores and consequently had massive rises in price.

Attacking midfielders are on the rise

Over the last two weeks I have also mentioned the below attacking midfielders in previous blogs which have also had massive rises in such a short space of time.

Below are some more attacking midfielders which, if they were to excel in their role, could in the future increase further in price due to their style of play suiting the PB matrix. This would therefore making them attractive buys for potentially earning match day dividends.
