To kick off our Gameweek 20 picks, our fantasy radar falls onto a man who appears to have escaped the Premier League wilderness, Paul Pogba (7.7).
A forgotten and mere bit-part player for Manchester United since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes a year ago, the Frenchman has, in recent weeks, become the focal point of the Red Devils’ midfield.
Indeed, Pogba has netted in two of the last three league games, a greater influence in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s table-topping side and with a value of still only 7.7, looks like he could be a big player in the second half of the campaign.
As a doomed Sheffield United roll up to Old Trafford in midweek, United will be licking their lips in anticipation of racking up a glut of goals, and should that happen, Pogba will be central to those efforts.
With an ownership of just 3.1%, his place in our fantasy squads could be quite a differential in GW20. A real consideration for the armband.
Tottenham Hotspur have rather slipped off the title pace for the time being, but as they welcome an out-of-sorts and ailing holders in Liverpool on Thursday evening, Son Heung-min (9.7) will be eyeing on picking up his goal ratio.
Still the most-owned commodity in FPL with close to 59% of managers with him on their books, the Korean forward continues to carry the burden for Spurs with Harry Kane, but after scoring eight in the opening six outings this term, has notched only four more in 12 games.
With a still impressive six assists also, the visiting Reds on any other occasion would likely present little value in Son this week, but Liverpool are limping somewhat.
Subjected to a shock defeat to Burnley at Anfield over the weekend, Jurgen Klopp‘s men are winless in 360 minutes of game-time and Spurs’ frontline is unlikely to accommodate any sympathy here.
As we saw in the Liverpool’s 3-2 FA Cup defeat to United, the visiting defence have real problems and with Son’s pace on the break in GW20, midweek leaves the Spurs man a potentially vital ingredient in the points pot.
It has been a frugal few weeks for Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.6), but, as Everton begin to climb the table once more, the forward could be on the verge of a return to form also.
Netting in the Toffees’ FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, the striker ended a run of seven games in all comps without a goal.
The biggest factor in Calvert-Lewin’s issues have been the absence of both James Rodriguez and Lucas Digne in supplying the aerial balls, but as the duo return to the fold from injury, his fortunes should now change.
With rumours of Thomas Tuchel‘s appointment at Stamford Bridge, a home game versus the struggling Wolves represents the perfect window for Chelsea’s personnel to stake their claim to a starting XI berth.
Ziyech has the undoubted class to shine once more the remainder of the season, and that could start in GW20.
The visitors from the Black Country are finding life tough without Raul Jimenez and a defence without the presence of key men, and having taken a point from the last four, Ziyech might be the man to heap anxiety on Wolves in midweek.
Punt of the Week: Stuart Dallas
For GW20’s Punt of the Week, St. James’ Park takes our focus and as Newcastle United host Leeds United, Stuart Dallas (4.8) could be a shrewd acquisition.
Already owned by 14.2% of managers due the Whites’ right-back’s cheap price-tag, the Scottish defender has in recent weeks caught the eye of many a fantasy manager.
