here’s no rest for the wicked in the Premier League at this time of year as gameweek 15 quickly follows a full fixture schedule during the week.
Sunday then sees Ralf Rangnick take charge of his first Manchester United game at home to Crystal Palace while Antonio Conte’s in-form Tottenham side host relegation-threatened Norwich City. Brentford’s trip to Leeds United completes a busy 2pm slot before Steven Gerrard welcomes former manager Brendan Rodgers in Aston Villa vs Leicester City.
Finally, crisis club Everton host Arsenal on Monday night.
Here are our Fantasy Premier League tips…
Edouard Mendy (Chelsea) | £6.3m
It may seem a little obvious to plump for the league leaders’ stoic goalkeeper but, with West Ham struggling to score, Mendy is simply too logical a pick to ignore.
Joao Cancelo (Man City) | £6.7m
Again, not the most insightful of choices but the Portuguese has emerged as one of City’s creative leads of late. With Watford having conceded an awful lot this season, he seems likely to be involved in any goal his team will surely score.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) | £8m
Arguably the best right-back in the world, overlook Liverpool’s genius passer at your own peril. Given Wolves are generally nice and compact under Bruno Lage, it could take a moment of genius to unlock them.
Alexander-Arnold has those in abundance.
Tariq Lamptey (Brighton) | £4.4m
Slowly working his way back from a long-term injury, Lamptey caused problems against West Ham United on Wednesday evening, he looks in good form ahead of a trip to Southampton.
Sergio Reguilon (Tottenham) | £5.2m
Impressive against Brentford on Thursday, Conte has a track-record of improving wing-backs and Norwich have been one of the worst teams in the league from a defensive standpoint so far.
John McGinn (Aston Villa) | £5.8m
The Scotland international is threatening to become the focal point of Gerrard’s team and has been in excellent goalscoring form for both club and country this season.
Diogo Jota (Liverpool) | £7.9m
In fantastic form this season, the Portuguese looks a good bet to get on the scoresheet against his former side on Saturday.
Bernardo Silva (Man City) | £7.4m
Hitting a fantastic volley in midweek, Silva has arguably been City’s best player this season. For the same reasons as Cancelo, he seems too good to ignore.
Maxwel Cornet (Burnley) | £6.1m
One of the surprise stories of the season so far, Newcastle’s deep defensive problems could easily be exploited by the Burnley star.
Ivan Toney (Brentford) | £6.7m
Back on the scoresheet against Everton recently, the Brentford star is playing a Leeds side who tend to leave themselves open. Do that against Toney and things could get messy.
Joelinton (Newcastle) | £5.8m
Revitalised under Eddie Howe, the Brazilian has been in great form of late and could cause Burnley issues.
