Negredo came on in the 57th minute to score the tying goal on two shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over Espanyol.

The 30-year-old might have started on the bench, but he scored for the second straight match as Valencia came from behind to grab the three points. Negredo has just nine goals this season, but four have come in his last eight appearances. Negredo was likely rested after starting two matches in six days prior to Saturday, and he should be expected to return to the starting lineup Sunday versus Granada.

Alvaro Negredo: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

January 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Negredo attempted four shots and scored the tying goal in stoppage time of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Deportivo.

The 30-year-old was largely ineffective in the first portion of the season, but he has seemingly hit his stride since the calendar flipped to 2016, with five of his six total goals coming in January. Negredo has ceded starts to the emerging Paco Alcacer this season, but he stands to benefit from the news that the latter could be out three weeks with an injury. Negredo will likely carry the load while Alcacer recovers, and performances such as this can only help his case for a consistent role when his teammate returns.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Negredo has made eight starts this season for Valencia, scoring two goals.

Five of Negredo’s starts have come in La Liga where he’s scored one goal on 12 shots, with his other goal coming in the UEFA Champions League. He likely continue making starts for Valenia this season as he looks to create more goals and create pressure on opposing defenses.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Negredo had a relatively quiet season for Valencia on loan from Manchester City, scoring six goals with four assists in 30 total appearances (just 14 starts).

After his falling out with Manager Manuel Pellegrini, the Spaniard returned home to join Valencia on loan, but failed to consistently feature in the starting lineup and didn't put up the numbers that his $45 million price tag would suggest. Negredo wants to return to Valencia on a permanent deal next season, when he will hope to rebound from this down year.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Negredo came on for Javi Fuego in the 60th minute and scored the match winner in the 83rd during Valencia's 3-2 win over Almeria on Saturday.

Negredo came into the match with just one goal this season, but he played the hero to help Valencia to fifth in the table. Nevertheless, he'll have to score a lot more to justify his transfer price at the end of the season, with Valencia scheduled to dole out over €20 million to bring him over officially from Manchester City.

January 14, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Despite consistently being in the Valencia starting XI this season, Negredo has just one goal and two assists in 10 appearances (seven starts).

Negredo is on loan from Manchester City this season, with an option to buy at the end of the campaign, though with this kind of production, it's unclear if Valencia will want to keep him. He has shown in his career that he can start scoring in bunches, so Valencia will have to hope that it comes soon.

November 11, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Negredo has made just three appearances off the bench since returning from a foot injury, taking just one shot in 38 total minutes.

Negredo continues to work his way back to full fitness, though it's still unclear whether he'll get a legitimate shot to compete for the starting striker position with Paco Alcacer, who has four goals and four assists in 11 La Liga matches this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Negredo (foot) returned to training Friday but suffered a setback in his recovery Monday and he will have additional scans to determine the extent of the issue, Marca reports.

Negredo suffered a fractured metatarsal back in July while with Manchester City, and he has been unable to play since then. He was sent to Valencia on loan for the season but it's now unclear when he will make his debut.
