Anthony Martial


Manchester United forward Anthony Martial (7.6 and owned by 8%) could be an interesting choice given that he is one of the only players in the squad capable of given you decent points.

He picked up 12 points against Swansea City in the previous round of fixtures with one goal as well as an assist and could do the same against a struggle Newcastle United side.

Dimitri Payet


West Ham United star Dimitri Payet (7.7 and owned by 8.5%) was an instant favourite during his first few matches for the Hammers before picking up a lengthy injury.

However, he has now returned to full fitness and could very well carry on the form which has so far seen him score four goals while providing another five assists against upcoming opponents Bournemouth.

Shane Long


Southampton star Shane Long (5.7 and owned by 0.7%) can be a huge differential selection for your team given that very few players have him in their squad.

With first-choice striker Graziano Pelle still doubtful for the visit of Watford, Long could replicate the form which saw him score two in the 4-0 win over current Premier League leaders Arsenal late last year.
