Fantasy Premier League transfers have been flying in this week ahead of GW12, with several premium-cost stars in-demand and injuries wreaking havoc.
Everton ace Richarlison is among the most transferred in players of the week, though Marco Silva has dropped a bombshell suggesting he won’t be fit against Chelsea this weekend.
Leicester winger James Maddison has also been a popular choice in 2018/19 but has been ruled out against Burnley through injury.
Manchester United take on noisy neighbours Manchester City on Sunday, with two players gunning for big points, while Chelsea and Arsenal offer strong defensive options.
Express Sport has rounded up the best Fantasy Premier League transfers you can make ahead of Gameweek 12:
GKP: Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City) – £5.0m
Leicester have some great fixtures ahead starting with Burnley who have failed to threaten in too many games this season.
DEF: Lewis Dunk (Brighton & Hove Albion) – £4.4m
Brighton’s defence has been a goldmine over the last month, and Dunk chipped in with a goal to boost his points total.
DEF: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) – £5.4m
The Gunners defender has looked sharp in recent weeks. He’s back from a thigh injury with some favourable fixtures ahead.
DEF: David Luiz (Chelsea) – £5.5m
Cheaper than the rest of the Blues’ backline. He will face an Everton team who could be missing their main man, Richarlison.
MID: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – £11.1m
The winger is two points off being the hottest player in FPL 2018/19. He has proven he can score or assist against any team at any time. Back him.
MID: Felipe Anderson (West Ham United) – £6.9m
West Ham have a terrific run of games coming up – barring City next week – and Anderson will be hoping to provide Marko Arnautovic with plenty of ammunition.
MID: David Brooks (Bournemouth) – £5.1m
The Cherries have been in remarkable form this season and Brooks is one of the top bargain options around.
FWD: Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – £6.7m
You’d be backing City to concede a goal. That takes some courage, but Rashford could be a terrific differential option and has history in the Manchester derby…
FWD: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) – £12.4m
Always a good shout, but with Crystal Palace up next, Kane appears to be the pick of the premium-cost front men.
FWD: Ayoze Perez (Newcastle United) – £6.1m
He will start in place of Yoshinori Muto and a goal last weekend might have kick-started his (and Newcastle’s) season.
