The Premier League and fantasy football returns this week after the crusty old international break.

Well, all you need to do is pick SEVEN players from the upcoming Saturday and Sunday games, with no transfer budget and no limit to the number of players you can pick from one club.

But who should you pick this weekend?
Well, we’ve got the low down on the players who’ve returned from international football in red hot form, while two of our writers have rather kindly shared with you who they’re going for. Do you reckon you can beat them?
Fresh from their recent run out with England, Michael Golson has picked Burnley duo Nick Pope and James Tarkowski as goalkeeper and defender respectively, with the Clarets up against bottom-of-the-pack West Brom on Saturday.
Playing alongside Tarkowski is tough-tackling Man City man Nicolas Otamendi, while his midfield consists of Arsenal playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Chelsea’s Willian, who we seriously fancy to score against Sunday’s opponents Spurs.
Up front, there’s the lively duo of Jamie Vardy and Gabriel Jesus, who both scored during the international break.
Meanwhile, Andrew Butler is backing Man United to thump Swansea when they play on Saturday afternoon.
In goal is the ever-reliable David De Gea, with Antonio Valencia making up a half of his back two.
Burnley defender James Tarkowski had a mixed first appearance in an England shirt midweek, but the experience will not do him any harm at all – and with the Clarets away at almost relegated West Brom, the centre-back gets the nod.
It’s a Liverpool special in midfield with the irrepressible Mo Salah and Sadio Mane hoping to do the business away at Crystal Palace, while United’s Romelu Lukaku and Arsenal hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang selected up top.
