Watford v Manchester United
12.45pm GMT, Vicarage Road, Watford
Watford lost away to Leicester in their last game, but they made a real game of it. They have only won two of their six home games and no other team has scored less goals at home. Only United have conceded less goals at home though and Watford have made themselves a hard team to beat.
Odion Ighalo and Huerelho Gomes are the stand out fantasy players in the Watford team and well worth considering for fantasy managers.
United won at home to West Brom in their last game after drawing their previous two games 0-0. They have lost two of their six away games, but only one other team in the top half of the table has conceded more goals away from home. They have the best defensive record in the league and have kept clean sheets in eight of their 12 games.
Juan Mata has done well for fantasy managers while Chris Snalling and all of United's defenders are well worth having too.
I think this will be a very close game and it might just end in a draw.
Chelsea v Norwich City
3pm GMT, Stamford Bridge, London
Chelsea must surely have welcomed the international break to give them some time away from their troubles. They have lost four of their last five league games and their last three in a row. They have also lost three of their six home games with only Everton and West Brom conceding more goals at home.
None of the Chelsea players have made any impression so far for fantasy managers and it's hard to see when they will, but surely it will happen at some stage.
Norwich won their last game at home to Swansea to end a run of four defeats in a row. They have only won once in six away games with only Sunderland and Bournemouth conceding more goals away from home. Normally a trip to the reigning champions would be a daunting task for a newly promoted team, but Norwich will feel they have a chance against a team below them in the table.
Wes Hoolihan, Nathan Redmond and Robbie Brady have all done reasonably well for fantasy managers and are good back up options.
Despite their awful season so far this is a game Chelsea must surely win.
Everton v Aston Villa
3pm GMT, Goodison Park, Liverpool
Everton got a good point away to West Ham in their last game. They have only won two of their six home games with only West Brom conceding more goals at home. They have scored pretty freely so far with only four teams managing more goals in the first 12 games.
Romelu Lukaku is the Everton player to have for fantasy managers with Arouna Kone doing well when he plays too.
Villa took only their second point in 11 games with a good point at home to the league leaders in their last game. They have lost their last five away games and haven't won at all since the opening day. No other team has scored less goals than Villa so far and they need to find some goals soon or relegation could become very real for them.
I can't see any Villa players to remotely interest fantasy managers at the moment.
I think Everton will put their poor home form behind them and win this game by a couple of goals.
Newcastle United v Leicester City
3pm GMT, St. James's Park, Newcastle
Newcastle won their last game away to Bournemouth to move out of the relegation zone. They have only won once in their six home games, but only three teams have scored more goals at home thanks to the six they put past Norwich. As bad as they have been so far they still look better than the team's below them and they should start to move away from the relegation zone.
Georginio Wijnaldum is the Newcastle player most like to perform for fantasy managers.
Leicester won yet again in their last game to stay third in the table. They're the only team to score in every game and one of only two teams unbeaten away from home. Only Arsenal have scored more goals away from home and Leicester could even go top of the league if they win this game and other results go their way.
Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are both excellent fantasy choices and still available at a reasonable price too.
I think Leicester should be too strong up front for Newcastle and will take all three points.
Southampton v Stoke City
3pm GMT, St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton
Southampton won away to Sunderland in their last game to move up to seventh in the table. They have taken 14 points from their last six games, but they have lost two of their six home games. Only City and Leicester have scored more goals at home than Southampton.
Graziano Pelle, Dusan Tadic and Sadio Mane are all good fantasy choices at the moment.
Stoke got a great win at home to Chelsea in their last game and it was their fourth win in six games. They have kept clean sheets in four of those six games too and have only lost one of their six away games. Only four teams have conceded less goals than Stoke, but no other team has scored less than them.
Jack Butland is the best fantasy choice in the Stoke team at the moment and all of their defenders have done well too.
I think this will be a very close game, but Southampton should be just good enough to win.
Swansea City v Bournemouth
3pm GMT, Liberty Stadium, Swansea
Swansea lost away to Norwich in their last game and have only taken five points from their last eight games. They have failed to score in five of those last eight games too and need to rediscover their form quickly.They have only won two of their six home games and need to halt their slide soon with a lot of pressure on Gary Monk.
Andre Ayew is the best fantasy option in the Swansea team, but all of their players look risky for fantasy managers at the moment.
Bournemouth lost at home to Newcastle in their last game despite being the better team. That defeat dropped them into the bottom three and they have only taken one point in their last six games. They have lost five of their six away games with only Sunderland conceding more goals on the road.
I can't see any Bournemouth players who might make a difference for fantasy managers at the moment.
This is a game both teams need to get something from and I think Swansea will be the ones to do so.
West Bromwich Albion v Arsenal
3pm GMT, The Hawthorns, Birmingham
West Brom lost away to United in their last game and they have lost every game in which they have conceded. No other team has lost more home games than West Brom and they have conceded more home goals than any other team too. They are sure to set up defensively as always and try to hit Arsenal on the break, but they will have their work cut out keeping them at bay.
Boaz Myhill has been the best fantasy performer in the West Brom team and is certainly worth considering.
Arsenal missed the chance to go to the top of the table when they could only draw with Spurs in their last game. They have won five of their six away games and no other team has more points away from home. They are also the highest scorers on the road and will want to win this game to go top of the table before City play.
Mesut Ozil has been in great form for fantasy managers recently while all of the Arsenal defenders and Alexis Sanchez are doing pretty well too.
I think Arsenal will continue their impressive run by taking the three points in this game.
Manchester City v Liverpool
5.30pm GMT, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
City have struggled to score goals recently with two blanks in their last three games. The injuries to key players haven't helped them and they will be glad when Sergio Aguero and David Silva return. They have taken more points at home than any other team though and they're the top scorers at home too.
With Aguero and Silva still probably out the best fantasy choice in the City team looks like Kevin de Bruyne with their defenders worth considering too.
Liverpool seemed to be getting up a head of steam until they lost at home to Palace in their last game. They have only won two of their six away games and have only scored six goals in those games too. They need to improve on two wins in their last 10 league games if they're going to have any chance of finishing in the top four.
Philippe Coutinho seems to have found some form and is well worth considering for fantasy managers along with Christian Benteke.
Liverpool will give City a good game, but I think City will just edge it.
Sunday November 22
Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham United
4pm GMT, White Hart Lane, London
Spurs got a good point away to Arsenal in their last game and they're still unbeaten since the opening game. They're one of only two teams unbeaten at home and only United have conceded less goals at home. They're only one place off the top four and have to be considered as real candidates for a top four finish with Chelsea struggling so badly.
Harry Kane is the in form player for Spurs at the moment and he's certainly worth considering for fantasy managers along with all of their defenders.
West Ham have stuttered in their last couple of games and the injury to Dimitri Payet is a real blow to them. Only Arsenal have taken more points on the road though and only Arsenal have scored more away goals too. This will be a tough test for a team who have had such a good start to the season.
With Payet out for a few months it's not easy to see which West Ham players might make an impact for fantasy managers, but Manuel Lanzini certainly looks like he might be up to it.
I think this will be a very close game and a draw is the most likely outcome.
Monday November 23
Crystal Palace v Sunderland
8pm GMT, Selhurst Park, London.
Palace got a very good win away to Liverpool in their last game to get them back on track after a poor run. They have lost three of their six home games with only four other teams scoring less goals at home. They will fancy their chances of improving that record at home to the team who are second last in the league.
Yohan Cabaye has been the best fantasy performer for Palace so far while their defenders have done well too and Wayne Hennessey is available at a very good price.
Sunderland lost at home to Southampton in their last game and they have only won once so far in the league. They are the only team not to win on the road and have conceded more away goals than any other team. Despite their awful start to the season they're only four points from safety, but that's a long way for a team playing like Sunderland.
I still can't see any Sunderland players who might make a difference for fantasy managers.
I think Palace should be good enough to take the three points with a couple of goals to spare.
That's it for this week.
See you next week.
