Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur) – £16

Position: Defender

GW32 Fixture: Watford (home)

Davies has enjoyed an extended run in the team due to Danny Rose’s injury layoff and as far as back-up full backs go, they don’t get much better than Davies. Like Rose, he seems to spend more time attacking than he does defending. Spurs have the best defensive record in the league with just 22 goals conceded and they’ll be confident of another shut out against Watford. Troy Deeney is doubtful for this fixture due to fatigue which increases the appeal of Spurs defenders this weekend.

Leroy Sane (Manchester City) – £19

Position: Midfielder

GW32 Fixture: Hull City (home)

Sane has been sensational in his first season in England and the 21-year-old has been the standout performer in a star-studded City team in recent months. Playing on the left of an attacking three, the German is very creative but more importantly for us fantasy managers, he also has an eye for goal which he showed again against Arsenal last weekend.

City currently occupy the 4th Champions League spot but they have a real fight on their hands with Arsenal and Manchester United breathing down their neck. They welcome Hull City to the Etihad on Saturday as they look to bounce back from their defeat to league leaders Chelsea. The Tigers conceded twice against goal shy Middlesbrough in midweek and therefore Sane and co. will fancy their chances of putting three or four past Eldin Jakupovic. Harry Maguire, who has been superb at centre-half this season will miss this fixture after picking up a knock against Boro.

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – £17

Position: Midfielder

GW32 Fixture: Arsenal (home)

Crystal Palace are hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone, just three points above 18th placed Swansea but big Sam Allardyce is the king of relegation scraps, having never suffered relegated in his managerial career. It’s worth investing in players from Sam Allardyce teams during the final quarter of a season.

After a superb 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Palace went to Southampton and lost 3-1 in midweek. They are an unpredictable outfit and as Arsenal roll up to Selhurst Park this weekend, we could be set for another shock. Palace are fighting for their lives and they’ll be pumped up for this London derby. The Gunners will be without goalkeepers Petr Cech and David Ospina as well as defensive rock Laurent Koscielny. There’s goals in this one and I’m backing Wilfried Zaha to continue his excellent form.

Fernando Llorente (Swansea City) – £17

Position: Forward

GW32 Fixture: West Ham (away)

The Spaniard has missed the last two league fixtures due to injury and Paul Clement will be desperate to have him available for the trip to West Ham. His output for the remainder of the season is going to play a big part in whether Swansea stay up or go down.

The Hammers have been dreadful this season and they’ve lost their last five on the trot, conceding 13 times in the process. I’m confident that if I started up front for Swansea against West Ham and had Gylfi Sigurdsson behind me, I’d get on the scoresheet. If Llorente doesn’t make it, Jordan Ayew at £14 is worth getting for this one.
