DEF: Alfie Doughty vs Nottingham Forest (H)

  • Price: 4.0
  • Team: Luton
  • Predicted points: 4.5

It’s not just clean sheet potential which makes Alfie Doughty an attractive fantasy asset. He’s playing out of position as an attacking wing-back where he’s notched ten goal involvements this season. He dominates Luton Town’s set pieces, with the most corners taken among defenders. He has two assists in his last three Premier League games.

DEF: Lorenz Assignon vs Brentford (H)

  • Price: 4.0
  • Team: Burnley
  • Predicted points: 3.7

Burnley have just two clean sheets this season, but with a high demand for other sides in attacking positions, we see Burnley’s Assignon make this XI for his home game against Burnley, which will be a significant fixture in the battle to avoid relegation. The new signing has started all six games since arriving at Turf Moor, with one assist.

DEF: Charlie Taylor vs Brentford (H)

  • Price: 4.0
  • Team: Burnley
  • Predicted points: 3.7

Sticking with Burnley and it’s a double up on their defence with Charlie Taylor an attractive option on the opposite flank. Taylor has two attacking returns for this season: one goal and one assist. When fit, Taylor is a mainstay of this Burnley defence. Opponents Brentford have scored just one goal in their last two away games.

MID: Son Heung-min vs Fulham (A)

  • Price: 9.9
  • Team: Spurs
  • Predicted points: 6.7

Spurs captain Son Heung-min is deservedly the captaincy favourite for the blank given, with two goals and three assists in the last four gameweeks since returning from the Asia Cup. He has penalties in his locker and rich pedigree in this fixture, with a 14-point haul in the 2-0 win against Fulham earlier in the season.

MID: Jarrod Bowen vs Aston Villa (H)

  • Price: 8.0
  • Team: West Ham
  • Predicted points: 5.4

West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen has been instrumental to their upturn in form over the last three gameweeks, where he’s chalked up four attacking returns – three goals and one assist. Bowen has scored an impressive 14 goals this season, one fewer than leading midfielder Mohamed Salah.

MID: James Maddison vs Fulham (A)

  • Price: 8.0
  • Team: Spurs
  • Predicted points: 5.3

A double up on the Spurs midfield is a wise move for their trip to Fulham, with Maddison finding himself on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture. He’s delivered four goal involvements in six gameweeks since returning from injury and he is dominating Spurs set pieces once again.

MID: Leon Bailey vs West Ham (A)

  • Price: 5.7
  • Team: Aston Villa
  • Predicted points: 4.6

Aston Villa’s Leon Bailey has been a surprise package this season and has gone under the radar compared to teammate Watkins. He has 17 goal involvements this season from just 15 starts: eight goals and nine assists. He scored as a substitute in the reverse fixture against West Ham and has the recent form with three attacking returns in his last four.

FWD: Ivan Toney vs Burnley (A)

  • Price: 5.7
  • Team: Brentford
  • Predicted points: 5.7

Brentford talisman Ivan Toney has five attacking returns in nine appearances this season. He has an attractive fixture against Burnley, a side who have failed to keep a clean sheet in 2024. Toney has plenty of routes to points given that he is on spot-kicks for the Bees, with seven shots on goal over the last four gameweeks.

FWD: Ollie Watkins vs West Ham (A)

  • Price: 9.0
  • Team: Aston Villa
  • Predicted points: 5.6

Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins is the top FPL asset this season, with 31 goal involvements in the campaign from 28 appearances. He’s in another purple patch of form, with five goals and one assist in the last four gameweeks. He scored 11 fantasy points in the reverse fixture against West Ham, where Villa came away as the 4-1 victors.

FWD: David Datro Fofana

  • Price: 5.0
  • Team: Burnley
  • Predicted points: 4.7

Burnley striker David Datro Fofana comes into this gameweek as a huge differential, in just 0.4% of sides. He scored last time out against West Ham, taking him up to four attacking returns in seven appearances this season. Opponents Brentford have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four gameweeks, conceding 13 goals over five games.
