Defence – Ashley Williams v Sunderland (£5.0m)
Everton return to Premier League action with a clash against Sunderland at Goodison Park. The Toffees endured a tough October-December but they’ve come out the other side playing some great football and they’re in solid form at the moment. Ronald Koeman’s men haven’t been beaten since 19th December – a run which stands at eight games – and they’re looking well placed to get another victory here. Everton’s backline is looking solid, resilient and difficult to breach and it’s seen them keep clean sheets in four of their last six games. One of the main factors behind their new found solidity is Wales captain Ashley Williams – the 32 year-old is leading by example in the heart of defence and he’s a mainstay in this side, starting all but two of their league games. He’s available at a price of just £5.0m which looks great value in comparison to some his rivals who’ve accumulated a similar points total. He currently has 83 to his name which makes him one of the most consistent players in the PL and he’d be a shrewd addition to your team.

Midfield – Nacer Chadli v Bournemouth (£6.0m)
Tony Pulis’ West Brom take on Bournemouth at the Hawthornes in their first Premier League game in two weeks. The Baggies are currently up in eighth position and they’re enjoying a productive season. A win here could see them close the gap on Everton to just one point and they enter this clash in good form. They’ve lost just one of their previous seven league games and they’re an opponent no one enjoys facing, particularly at home. They’ve won six of their last seven games in front of their own supporters and they’re much more than an organised side these days. They’re now scoring plenty of goals and their forward line of Matt Phillips, Salomon Rondon & Nacer Chadli are a real handful. Chadli in particular has been in great form in recent weeks and the Belgian is living up to his big price tag. He’s accumulated 83 points for The Baggies this season and he costs a measly £6.0m, so he’s a great option. He’s scored or assisted in three of his last four PL games and with fixtures against Crystal Palace & Everton coming up, he could be well amongst the points.

Forward – Troy Deeney v West Ham (£6.7m)
It’s been a topsy turvy few weeks for Watford and they return to Premier League action down in thirteenth position. Walter Mazzarri’s men are currently ten points clear of the drop zone and their fate is in their own hands on that front, but the Italian will be eager for his side to push on into the top half. They’re only two points away from tenth placed West Ham who they face on Saturday and a result here could see them climb as high as ninth, so there’s a lot riding on this one. Their form has been inconsistent in recent weeks but something that hasn’t are the performances of skipper Troy Deeney. The 28 year-old is leading by example at the moment, scoring three goals in his last four appearances. Those goals have helped his side take seven points from a possible nine and when he’s on form he’s a difficult man to handle. He has the likes of M’Baye Niang, Etienne Capoue and Mauro Zarate supporting him in attack he should get plenty of opportunities against a West Ham side which has conceded a huge 43 goals this season.
