Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur) – £14
Gameweek 33 Fixture: Bournemouth (home)
Davies brought home the points for fantasy managers last weekend against Watford as Spurs kept another clean sheet. He’ll be in my team again for the visit of Bournemouth as I fancy another Spurs shut out. Davies is also an attacking threat with his rampaging runs on the left flank – he’s had a few shots on goal in the last few games which suggests we could see his name on the scoresheet sooner rather than later.
Kevin Mirallas (Everton) – £16
Gameweek 33 Fixture: Burnley (home)
Everton were impressive in their 4-2 win over Leicester on Sunday and Mirallas was one of the stand-out performers. It was the first time the Belgian completed ninety minutes for the Toffees since GW14 and he repaid Ronald Koeman’s faith in him with two assists. He’ll hope to build on that performance against a Burnley side who have the worst away record in the league this season and who are yet to win a game on their travels. Everton should win this one comfortably and Mirallas is great value at just £16.
Troy Deeney (Watford) – £16
Gameweek 33 Fixture: Swansea (home)
Deeney was given a rest by Walter Mazzarri for the Spurs game last weekend so he’ll be well refreshed for the visit of Swansea on Saturday. In his last eight starts for the Hornets, he’s scored six goals and he’ll fancy his chances against a Swansea side low on confidence having lost four of their last five matches. Deeney is a handful for any Premier League defence and he’s also one of the best penalty takers in the division. £16 for a striker in form who takes penalties is hard to ignore this week.
Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace) – £18
Gameweek 33 Fixture: Leicester City (home)
I tipped Wilfried Zaha (£17) last week and he duly obliged with two assists in a very impressive 3-0 win over Arsenal and there’s a good chance the Ivorian international will be in my team again this weekend. Christian Benteke is another player who offers good value having registered two goals and an assist in his last three matches. Leicester come into this fixture off the back of a draining 1-0 defeat in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday. Palace players are worth investing in for this one as Craig Shakespeare is likely to rest some of his first team regulars ahead of the second leg next week.
