Goalkeepers

Who’s Hot

Loris Karius – Liverpool may be something of a shambles at the back but Karius kept a clean sheet against Huddersfield before saving Harry Kane’s first penalty on Sunday.

Jonas Lossl – The Terriers goalie kept out Alexis Sanchez’s spot-kick before the Chilean followed scored on the rebound and could pick up more points when Bournemouth travel to the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday.

Who’s Not

Ederson – The Brazilian only has one clean sheet in his last five Premier League games and Leicester will back themselves to get on the scoresheet on Saturday.

Ben Foster – Chelsea are going through a rough patch but should be able to breach former England international Foster’s defence.

West Bromwich Albion v Southampton - Premier League

Defenders

Who’s Hot

Daryl Janmaat – The Netherlands international has a knack for scoring impressive goals and could reap more rewards for fantasy managers against West Ham.

Jack Stephens – The 24-year-old has been in fine goalscoring form of late, netting against both Brighton and West Brom.

Watford v Chelsea - Premier League

Who’s Not

Nacho Monreal – The Spaniard faces Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen on Saturday and will do exceptionally well to keep a clean sheet.

Angelo Ogbonna – The Italian has struggled in a makeshift defence, conceding 15 goals in his last eight Premier League games.

Who’s Not

Paul Pogba – Dropped to the bench against Huddersfield, the France international is now without a goal or an assist in his last three league games.

Gylfi Sigurdsson – With just three goals and three assists this season, Sigurdsson is not the fantasy favourite he was last year.

Forwards

Who’s Hot

Javier Hernandez – The Mexican has returned to form in recent weeks, grabbing two goals and an assist.

Brighton and Hove Albion v West Ham United - Premier League

Who’s Not

Cenk Tosun – The former Besiktas forward is yet to get off the mark for his new club, having played three league games so far for Everton.
