Marcus Rashford and Dusan Tadic are worth a run in your team.

Marcus Rashford and Dusan Tadic are worth a run in your team.

Christian Fuchs (Leicester City) – £14

GW30 Fixture: Stoke City (home)

Like most of his Leicester teammates, Fuchs has been rejuvenated by the managerial change at the King Power Stadium, scoring against Hull City and grabbing an assist in the victory over Liverpool. The Austrian is an attacking full back who also has a share of corners and free kicks with his trusty left foot. Stoke have only managed to score six goals in their last eight matches so the chances of a clean sheet for Fuchs also looks good this weekend.

Dusan Tadic (Southampton) – £16

GW30 Fixture: Bournemouth (home)

Tadic brings form into this fixture with two goals and three assists in his last five appearances for the Saints having also scored for Serbia during the international break. He has frustrated fantasy managers in the past and he rarely completes ninety minutes which diminishes his appeal but his form is hard to ignore and as far as fixtures go, it doesn’t get much better than Bournemouth at home. He’s worth a punt this weekend.

Andre Ayew – £15 (West Ham)

GW30 Fixture: Hull City (away)

Ayew is in excellent form with three goals and an assist in his last four, despite only starting one of those games. He played 90 minutes last time out against Leicester (in which he scored) and should keep his place in the starting XI for the trip to Hull with Michail Antonio ruled out through injury.

The Ghanaian had an excellent first season in English football with Swansea where he scored twelve goals and registered five assists. His first season at West Ham has been stop/start dues to injuries but he looks sharp again and he could be a big fantasy points scorer during the final quarter of the season.

Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – £15

GW30 Fixture: West Brom (home)

Rashford is set to lead the line again for Manchester United as Zlatan Ibrahimovic serves the last of his three-match suspension. Rashford completed ninety minutes last time out against Middlesbrough and while he didn’t find the back of the net, he did get himself into goal scoring positions, only to be denied by some excellent goalkeeping by former United goalkeeper Victor Valdes. He’ll come up against another former United stopper in the form of Ben Foster this weekend.

At thirty-seven years of age, Gareth McAuley is the oldest outfield player in the Premier League. His excellent form has been rewarded with a new contract this week but I expect Rashford to make him feel every bit his age at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Jermain Defoe (Sunderland) – £16

GW30 Fixture: Watford (away)

I talked about Defoe in my ‘hot/not’ piece this week so I will summarise here rather than repeating everything. Sunderland need goals. Jermain Defoe scores goals. Watford have conceded in each of their last six matches. Get Jermain Defoe in your fantasy team this weekend.
