European games are still somewhere on the horizon, with the next phase of the Champions League/Europa League coming in February.

And while the Carabao Cup has nearly reached it’s climax, the FA Cup is still very much in it’s infancy.

But the majority of the fixtures take place on Saturday – which is great news for fans of  Dream Team Weekender.

One thing you really need to keep in mind for the FA Cup games is that Premier League sides often rotate their line-ups, especially if they’re up against low-level opposition.

While this is mildly frustrating for those of us keeping up with the season game, it’s well worth taking advantage of for Weekender.

As one lucky Weekender winner discovered a few weeks ago during the FA Cup third round, it’s worth considering the players who’re usually not regular starters in the Premier League.

So, the likes of Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi, Man City’s Danilo and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold could get a game this weekend.


Virgil van Dijk, Jan Vertonghen and Sergio Aguero were the heroes in the third round, but who will be the big points scorers in the fourth round?
