The Red Devil's Spanish 'keeper seems to be back to his best this season, and has picked up 3 clean sheets in his previous 5 appearances.

Manchester United host a Southampton side who have scored just 1 goal in their past 3 Premier League fixtures.

Leeds United will host Everton in their next League game, where Meslier will be hoping to pick up his first clean sheet in 6 games.

Everton have struggled to find the back of the net of late, having failed to score against Newcastle in their last fixture, increasing potential for Meslier clean sheet returns.

Defenders

Attacking right-backs! These two versatile full backs are great FPL options.

After being rested against Sheffield United, the Portuguese looks set to be recalled to the Manchester City starting XI at Burnley.

Cancelo offers multiple routes to returns for the match at Turf Moor - he has produced one goal, one assist, seven clean sheets and seven bonus points in his last nine starts.

Bargain Buy - Cedric Soares (£4.6m)

The Arsenal full-back, owned by just 0.2% of FPL managers, can bring in points at both ends of the pitch at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He has an assist, two clean sheets and 19 points over the last three Gameweeks, and Arsenal face a Wolves side who have scored only one goal across their last three matches in all competitions.

Midfielders

Fantastic number 10s! These two midfielders are the main source of creativity in their respective teams.

Star Signing - Jack Grealish (£7.7m)

A home encounter with West Ham United gives Grealish the chance to continue his run of FPL returns, as the Aston Villa playmaker has produced a goal or an assist in four of his last five appearances.

At home, Grealish’s 28 chances created place him second among all players in FPL, while his 19 shots in the box rank third in midfield.

Bargain Buy - Matheus Pereira (£5.6m)

The arrival of Sam Allardyce has transformed the West Bromwich Albion playmaker’s Fantasy potential.

Four of Pereira’s five goals this season and two of his four assists have come in his seven matches under the new head coach - he has averaged 6.6 points per match over that period ahead of a visit to struggling Sheff Utd.

Forwards

These number 9s could bag in gameweek 22!

Liverpool’s Brazilian forward is set to return to the starting XI against Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield after featuring as a substitute against West Ham.

Firmino faces Brighton having produced attacking returns in successive matches for the first time since Gameweek 14.

Martial's 10 shots in the last four Gameweeks rank second for Man Utd, while his nine shots in the box in that period are a team-leading total.

Having appeared off the bench against Arsenal at the weekend, he looks set to return to the starting XI at home to Southampton, and could be a great differential for your FPL team, at just 5.1% ownership.
