The 12th week of the 2018-19 Premier League season sees Manchester City take on Manchester United, while Liverpool host Fulham and Chelsea welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge. Let’s take a look at 11 players who you should consider for your EPL Fantasy team this weekend…
GK – Alisson (Liverpool)
Alisson is an expensive addition at 10.00m but he’s worth every last million. The Liverpool goalkeeper has 42 points this season and he’s likely to add to that tally against Fulham on Sunday.
DF – Paul Dummett (Newcastle)
Paul Dummett has 16 points in 2018-19 and he could easily pick up a clean sheet or two in Newcastle’s upcoming matches against Bournemouth and Burnley. At 2.00m, he’s a bargain.
DF – Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool)
Valued at 8.50m, Virgil van Dijk has 29 points this season — only five Premier League defenders have more — and he will surely increase that tally against low-scoring Fulham and inconsistent Watford in the next few weeks.
DF – David Luiz (Chelsea)
Marcos Alonso is most EPL Fantasy players’ go-to Chelsea defender this season, but what about David Luiz? The Brazilian has an impressive 22 points and only costs 6.00m.
MD – Johann Berg Gudmundsson (Burnley)
With two goals and four assists this season, 7.00m-rated Johann Berg Gudmundsson could be a decent addition to your EPL Fantasy team. He scored another goal in the 4-2 loss to West Ham on Saturday, taking his season tally to 18 points.
MD – Mo Salah (Liverpool)
Valued at 15.00m, Mo Salah is the most expensive player in EPL Fantasy this season. At times, it’s been questionable if he’s worth it. However, despite his apparent dip in form, he still has 38 points in 2018-19, making him the fifth-highest scorer in the league.
MD – Sadio Mane (Liverpool)
Alternatively, Sadio Mane has earned 33 points this season and you can get him for a cut-price 9.50m. The Liverpool man has been an inconsistent points scorer in recent weeks but, like the other Reds on this list, he is likely to be among the points against Fulham.
MD – Ross Barkley (Chelsea)
Another week, another selection for Ross Barkley. The Chelsea midfielder is one of the most in-form points scorers in the league, picking up 22 points from his last four games, and all of the focus will be on him against former club Everton on Sunday.
ST – Glenn Murray (Brighton)
Glenn Murray has 22 points so far this season — only five Premier League strikers have more — and he will be Brighton’s go-to man for goals for the rest of the season. At 8.00m, he’s a reliable player to have in your EPL Fantasy team.
ST – Jamie Vardy (Leicester)
Burnley have conceded 25 goals in 11 games this season, so Jamie Vardy is worth considering ahead of Saturday’s match at the King Power Stadium. The Leicester striker doesn’t come cheap (11.50m), though.
ST – Alvaro Morata (Chelsea)
Didn’t expect to see Alvaro Morata in our selections this season? Nor did we. The Spaniard has scored four goals in four games, earning 15 points in the process, making him one of the league’s most in-form strikers. At 8.00m, he’s worth considering.
