He certainly ins't the biggest name out there but it wasn't long ago that Mulumbu had a huge phantom point week for the Baggies.
Having recovered from his hamstring issue that kept him out for West Brom's Week 4 capitulation to Everton Youssouf Mulumbu is available again. "Available" doesn't exactly fill you with confidence that he'll be ready to go and a trip to White Hart Lane doesn't scream "pick me" either. If you are in an auction/draft format then you might be very happy to see the Baggies' midfielder enforcer returning to the line-up. Sep 19 - 8:32 PM

Youssouf Mulumbu became the third West Bromich Albion player to pick-up an injury during this international break when the midfielder limped off after just 21 minutes of his country’s home defeat to Cameroon in the African Cup of Nations 2015 qualifying competition.

Mulumbu joins Ben Foster and Graham Dorrans who have returned to club for further assessment and treatment. Although the severity of his hamstring injury is not yet known the DR Congo captain is now a serious doubt for next weekend’s British Premier League match-up with Everton. However coach Alan Irvine was able to provide a positive update on the injured pair who returned from England and Scotland duty respectively - goalkeeper Foster jarred his thumb but fortunately "There isn’t a lot of swelling or bleeding," a good indicator that the injury is not serious while Dorrans has a bruised heel which should settle down in 3/4 days "I will be surprised if he has still got problems [for game week four]." The trio will be monitored closely over the next 72 hours.

Not ordinarily a fantasy stand-out, Youssouf Mulumbu put up 18 points in the Yahoo format despite only 3 in the PL.com game as West Brom got a clean sheet.

It's hard to say how many clean sheets the Baggies will get this year but if Joel Ward All-Star Youssouf Mulumbu continues to put up great phantom point numbers like he did in Week 2, they'll definitely have more than expected. With eight tackles won, six passes intercepted and a blocked shot he got to 18 fantasy points in the Yahoo format despite not getting credit for the clean sheet as a midfielder and not scoring any attacking-related points. Strong effort from the holding midfielder.

Youssef Mulumbu scored in the 82nd minute to give Pepe Mel his first Premier League win and West Brom three critical points as they look to avoid relegation.

Swansea started about as quickly as you can start with a second minute goal. Given West Brom's miserable form you'd expect that might have been all they needed to get the three points and push the Baggies closer to the drop. Shockingly, that was the last goal the Swans would get on the day. Even more surprisingly, first Stephane Sessegnon and then Youssouf Mulumbu scored for traveling Albion to give them the points and give them a little breathing room from 18th place Sunderland who picked up a point from Norwich.
