Value Youth Players from this weekend

Updated: Feb 3, 2020

Plenty of young players have flown up this week due to strong performances. Rabbi Matondo being the stand out player rising 64% having started for Schalke and scoring too.

It was also nice to see Alphonso Davies have another good performance and increase 30p as he was my number 1 tip in my 'Under 20's Player Focus #1' blog earlier this month.

I am usually cautious with regards to buying players who have flown up in a short space of time. However, it is likely whilst the bonus is on, many young players who perform very well are likely to continue to increase in price.

Below are some under 23's which have stood out to me this weekend for either scoring or having a strong performance and still could be good value at their current price.
