DEFENCE: Phil Jagielka – £5.5m (Home v Swansea)
Everton’s flying full-backs might continue to get the most attention, but Phil Jagielka has stepped up in recent weeks and found some of his best form.
A couple of goals have helped in that regard, too, and whilst the claim that he’s the fastest player in the Premier League might be somewhat fanciful, he can be a useful one for your side.
MIDFIELD: Alexis Sanchez – £10.4m (Home v Burnley)
After profiting from Sunderland’s homage to Sunday League defenders to score twice at the weekend, Alexis Sanchez has now racked up 29 Fantasy points in his last two games.
There’s a convincing argument to state that the Chilean is pretty much the only thing that’s good about the Gunners at the moment, and at home to Burnley he’s bound to have a few more chances to increase his goal tally.
FORWARD: Danny Welbeck – £7.4m (Home v Burnley)
With the Gunners certain to be on the front foot against the Clarets, it could also pay to trust in Danny Welbeck to fire alongside Sanchez on what promises to be a goal-filled afternoon.
The ex-Manchester United man has only bagged two goals for Arsenal in the league so far, but a Champions League hat-trick certainly suggests that he knows where the goal is, and he’ll be expected to fire this weekend.
THE OUTSIDER: Mohamed Diame – £5.5m (Home v Southampton)
I may have had my own Mohamed Diame-based Fantasy Football crisis in the past, but there is little doubt that the Senegalese has made a bright start to life at Hull City.
Diame has scored four goals in his six league starts for the Tigers, and although he’s coming up against the rock-solid Southampton this weekend he could certainly impress in the coming weeks.
THE CAPTAIN: Diego Costa – £10.8m (Home v QPR)
The great Diego Costa-Sergio Aguero question has dominated over the past couple of Gameweeks, but it would make sense to give the armband back to the Spanish international ahead of Chelsea’s home game with QPR.
Jose Mourinho has confirmed that his premier forward should be fit, and that’s good enough for me.
