Fantasy football tips: 7 transfers you need to make this weekend

The Premier League rumbles on this weekend and it is serving up another glorious round of football.

Fantasy football managers listen up, it is the first day of December and you have three precious transfers to play with.

A mouth-watering tie between Arsenal and Man United leads the billing, Spurs will be hoping to stop the rot against Watford and West Ham are probably crying into their Christmas wrapping paper as a trip to Man City looms on Sunday.

Here’s our tips to get December off with a bang.

Fantasy football tips: Game Week 14

1 Raheem Sterling – £6.1m

Two last minute winners in two weeks, that’s right

Two last minute winners in two weeks, that’s right

Comes with quite a hefty price tag but crucial last-minute winners  on a weekly basis do not come cheap.

Sterling has become integral to Pep’s side at the Etihad and seems to have grown into a dominant Premier League force and match winner.

City face West Ham who conceded four against strikerless Everton in mid-week and the Citizens should put them to the sword.

The market is backing Sterling to have a hand in a big win with nearly 3,000 of you transferring him in.

2 Wayne Rooney – £3.1m

Wayne Rooney scored his first Everton hat trick against West Ham and what a trio of goals it was.

The former England captain rounded it off with a sumptuous driven strike from his own half.

Dream Team managers are showing Rooney some love, ranking him as one of the most transferred in players this week.

Can he reproduce the 25-point haul against Huddersfield this weekend?

3 Marc Albrighton – £1.3m

When Marc Albrighton fires so do Leicester.

That was certainly the case when they sank Spurs on Wednesday with two excellent goals.

The unfashionable midfielder delivered an inch-perfect cross for the first goal and had the better of Serge Aurier all evening.

Albrighton is selected by just 0.3% of managers but last week he garnered 18 points – get him in for the home tie against Burnley for just £1.3 million.

4 Ashley Young – £2.7m

Ashley Young is back, but was he ever away?

Yes definitely.

The Man United man scored nearly half of his total Dream Team points with a brace against Watford on Tuesday.

Another steal at £2.7m, you can get ahead of 99.7% of fantasy managers if you bring him for the Red Devils’ trip to the Emirates.

5 Nathan Redmond – £2.1m

Definitely words of encouragement

After his run-in with Pep Guardiola on the Etihad touchline Nathan Redmond might have a spring in his step.

Southampton have a nice south coast derby against hapless Bournemouth and with Pep’s words of encouragement ringing in his ears, we are backing Redmond to hit form.

Southampton haven’t been in great form of late but Bournemouth have been a lot worse – the Saints will be looking to Redmond to lead the procession here.

6 Olivier Giroud – £3.2m

The super-sub could finally get his moment on the big stage.

Alexandre Lacazette picked up an injury against Huddersfield and Giroud scored twice, leaving Arsene Wenger no choice but to let him lead the line against United.

Mesut Ozil appears to be hitting his straps and the German could give Giroud goals on a plate on Saturday’s late kick off.

7 Eden Hazard – £7.4m

Best dribbler in the league?

Best dribbler in the league?

This is the time to pick Eden.

Newcastle are coming to Stamford Bridge and Chelsea have won four of their last five and Hazard is at the heart of everything good right now.

At a cost of £7.4m the Belgian is expensive but you can expect goals and assists.

Hazard has already scored 96 points the season and only around a tenth of managers have selected him – get ahead of the crowd now.
