Defence – Charlie Daniels v Watford (£5.2m)
Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth welcome Watford to the Vitality Stadium looking to pick up their third home win in five games. The Cherries have had a solid second season in the Premier League and they’re making good progress. Their fans have already seen them beat the likes of Leicester, Liverpool & Everton already and they’re a side to be weary of when on home soil. There’s been a number of factors behind their improvement with the form of Ryan Fraser, Junior Stanislas & Callum Wilson grabbing plenty of headlines. But one man who’s gone under the radar slightly is full back Charlie Daniels. The former Tottenham trainee is an integral part of this Bournemouth side at both ends of the pitch and he’s flourished this year – which is shown by his fantasy points haul. The 30 year-old has accumulated 89 points this season which is only bettered by four defenders and at a price of £5.2m, he’s a bargain. Here he’s taking on a Watford side that’s failed to score in four of their last six meetings and they’ve kept a clean sheet just once in their last eleven meetings – so he could get some goalscoring opportunities too.

Midfield – Alexis Sanchez v Burnley (£11.9m)
Arsenal enter match day 22 up in fourth position and they have a decent fixture to close the gap on leaders Chelsea. The Gunners welcome Sean Dyche’s Burnley to the Emirates and they’re expected to win very comfortably. The Clarets have picked up just one point from their nine games on the road this season – scoring 3 and conceding 20. So it’s safe to say that Arsenal will be licking their lips at the prospect of facing their back four. The Gunners have been in great goalscoring form in recent weeks, hitting 10 goals in their last 4 games and one man who’s been a major catalyst behind their good form is Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean is integral to how this Arsenal side attacks and when he’s on top form he’s very difficult to stop. He’s contributed 21 goals in as many games in the league this season (14 goals 7 assists) and we’re expecting him to do some serious damage against Burnley’s back four. He’s one of the most expensive players in the game at £11.9m but he’s definitely worth the investment – he’s the highest scoring player of any position by some distance (24 points) and we can see that gap extending here.

Forward – Andy Carroll v Middlesbrough (£6.2m)
It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for West Ham after the news of star player Dimitri Payet’s refusal to play for the club. It saw a cloud of uncertainty hang over The Hammers but they certainly didn’t let it drag them down as they went on to thrash Crystal Palace (3-0) on the weekend. Bizarrely, the news seems to have united the club and supporters and they’ll be well up for this clash. One of the main positives to come from the last few weeks is the return to fitness and form of Andy Carroll. The 28 year-old announced his return to the starting line up in spectacular fashion on Saturday, scoring a goal of the season contender with a thumping bicycle kick which raised the roof at the London Stadium. It sets him up very nicely for this one and if the likes of Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio perform to the same standard as they did on the weekend, he’ll get plenty of opportunities to get on the scoresheet again. They’re taking on a Middlesbrough side that’s lost 5 of their 10 games this season so we can see him being a real danger to them – and at £6.2m he’s a real bargain for your side.
