Premier League Fantasy gameweek 24 preview

We have reached gameweek 24 of the Premier League Fantasy Football campaign and there are some desirable fixtures to target this weekend.

With the fight to win mini-leagues still at the forefront of our minds, we have picked five players who are worth consideration ahead of this weekend's fixtures.

Manchester City are back at the top of the league on goal difference and they travel to Nottingham Forest, while deposed leaders Arsenal travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.

Strugglers Southampton take on Chelsea, while Everton will look to leapfrog Leeds United in the table by beating them at Goodison Park.

Goalkeeper - Kepa Arrizabalaga

With Southampton in town, this weekend is the perfect time to select Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Spaniard has done incredibly well since reclaiming the club's number-one jersey, and he has recorded three clean sheets in his last four Premier League appearances.

Southampton, who sacked Nathan Jones last week after the 2-1 defeat to Wolves, have failed to score in two of their previous four at home, and they are likely to struggle against the Blues' resolute defence.

Kepa should rack up the points, while Chelsea To Win to Nil appeals at 1/1.

Defender - Kieran Trippier

No defender has scored more points in Fantasy Football than Newcastle right-back Kieran Trippier.

The England international has scored 145 points already this season, and he can add to that, even with Newcastle hosting Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

Trippier has scored eight points or more in Fantasy Football on six occasions since gameweek 14 and his set-pieces could cause carnage for Liverpool's fragile defence.

The Reds have only kept one clean sheet in their last eight on the road, and Trippier has what it takes to cause problems.

He is 7/2 to record Over 0.5 assists at St James' Park on Saturday.

Midfielder - Bukayo Saka

After he scored against Manchester City on Wednesday, we fancy Bukayo Saka to do the business in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off at Villa Park.

The England winger has scored two goals in his last five games for the Gunners, and he should have every chance of finding the back of the net this weekend.

Saka is now set to be Arsenal's penalty-taker for the time being and he faces a Villa side who are known for their weaknesses at the back.

Unai Emery's side have conceded 11 goals in their previous five games at Villa Park and Saka and co can get the job done.

Mikel Arteta's side need to win to put the pressure on the Citizens and they should do so at 4/5.

Striker - Joao Felix

We return to the fixture at Stamford Bridge and it looks like a decent game to select Chelsea striker Joao Felix along with his team-mate Kepa. 

The loanee scored his first goal for the Blues since his move from Atletico Madrid in the 1-1 draw with West Ham, while he also had another chalked off for offside.

Graham Potter's side have lacked a focal point in attack, but Felix should be the one to make the runs in behind and with Saints so poor at the back, he can find the net at 7/4 Anytime.

Striker - Erling Haaland

The last time Haaland faced off against Nottingham Forest he scored a hat-trick, so this bodes well ahead of Saturday's meeting at the City Ground.

While many expect his minutes to be managed by Pep Guardiola, the Spaniard still needs his side to pick up all three points.

Even if he is withdrawn early, Haaland can score goals quickly and he should be full of confidence after scoring his 26th Premier League goal of the campaign against Arsenal in midweek.

Haaland is available at 5/2 to score two or more goals this weekend, while an optimistic follower can back him to score another hat-trick at 9/1.

After going three games without a goal before his strike against Arsenal, critics had thought Haaland was out of form, but the Norway international has still scored five in his last six games in all competitions.

As the records show, it is usually better to side with the former Borussia Dortmund man than it is to bet against him.
