Gardner picked up a yellow card in Saturdayís 0-0 draw at Southampton.

Gardner proved a solid presence alongside Youssef Mulumbu in front of the visitorís defence for the teamís first clean sheet of the season. Gardner assisted one of Saido Berahinoís goals last time out and fantasy managers should note his modest threat from deep positions.

Gardner dealt with significant injuries last season, and as a result, he has already reached half of his assist total, with Saturday's coincidentally coming against his former club. He isn't expected to be a major contributor, even with his decent start.
