Jack Wilshere

There’s only so many times Arsene Wenger can watch Granit Xhaka picking his nose instead of defending before giving Wilshere a chance.

He came through Arsenal’s Europa League win against Red Star Belgrade unscathed and could provide Wenger’s limp midfield with some much needed verve.

At £1.8m he’s an absolute snip.

IS YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM RUINED? THEN DREAM TEAM WEEKENDER IS JUST THE CURE!


Tammy Abraham

With three goals in his last three Premier League games Abraham is busy making Chelsea’s decision to allow him to join Swansea on loan look a serious miscalculation.

His eyes will light up at the prospect of playing a Leicester side without a manager.

He’ll set you back a perfectly affordable £3.5m.

John Stones

Pep Guardiola + Stones (- a revolving door of defensive partners) = the solution to City’s defensive woes.

Stones, along with his partner in crime Nicolas Otamendi, will be relishing the chance to show that he can do the ugly side of the game when he faces Burnley.

At £5.3m he’s £1.0m cheaper than Otamendi, the only defender to outscore him so far.

That’s going to hurt in the morning

Wilfried Zaha

What a difference a Zaha makes.

Crystal Palace were unrecognisable against Chelsea thanks to Zaha’s pace and trickery.

Because of his injury-hit start to the season he’ll only set you back £4.2m.

Richarlison

He might not have been called up to the latest Brazil squad, but Richarlison has taken to life in England like a bikini on Ipanema beach.

The forward is coming up against a Chelsea defence without a clean sheet in four games, so he’ll be confident about the prospect of Premier League goal number four.

You can bag the Brazilian for £3.8m.

Ederson

The more Ederson plays for City the more it becomes clear that he’s got better technique than most Premier League midfielders.

Forget keeping a clean sheet against Burnley, we’re expecting Ederson to pick up a couple of assists.

The 24-year-old costs £5.1m.

Raheem Sterling

Sterling looks a new player under Guardiola, who sees his pace and ability to stretch the pitch as vital to his tactics.

While you can never second guess a Guradiola team we can’t see City playing without Sterling at the moment, such is his form.

The third highest scoring midfielder on fantasy football will cost you £4.6m.
