A recent move up front for Everton has transformed Richarlison’s (£8.0m) prospects in Fantasy Premier League.

The Brazilian scored only twice in the opening 23 Gameweeks but has since found the net in four of his last five matches. 

Richarlison can extend that run of goals at home to a Burnley side who have struggled defensively of late.

TV Info

Burnley have kept only one clean sheet in their last five matches and conceded four goals at Tottenham Hotspur in their last road trip.

The Everton star earns his place in a Selection that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£11.3m) named vice-captain.

Vicente Guaita (CRY) £4.8m

The Crystal Palace goalkeeper faces West Bromwich Albion in strong home form.

Guaita has produced 16 points across his last two matches at Selhurst Park, keeping clean sheets against Fulham and Manchester United.

Luke Shaw (MUN) £5.2m

Man Utd’s left-back has been a big success at both ends of the pitch ahead of his home meeting with West Ham United.

Shaw has combined one goal and four assists with four clean sheets in his last eight starts. 

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £5.9m

An advanced role on the wing for Leicester City lifts the Portuguese’s prospects of attacking returns at home to Sheffield United.

Pereira can also deliver a clean sheet against a Blades side who have scored a league-low six away goals this season.

Matt Targett (AVL) £5.0m

Three assists and 15 clean sheets underline the all-round potential of Aston Villa’s left-back at Newcastle United.

Targett produced his season-high haul of 12 points in his last meeting with the Magpies, a 2-0 win at Villa Park.

Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £11.5m

The Man Utd playmaker has scored in each of his last three home outings, totalling 36 points.

A tally of 11 double-figure hauls this season suggests Fernandes will be the go-to captain for many of his 57 per cent owners.

Riyad Mahrez (MCI) £8.1m

Manchester City’s form player has four goals and four assists in his last six matches.

Mahrez will be fresh for their trip to Fulham, having been replaced after 60 minutes against Southampton in midweek.

Mason Mount (CHE) £7.0m

A trip to Leeds United looks promising for the Chelsea midfielder’s Fantasy prospects.

Mount has scored three of his five goals this season in his last five starts, returning 35 points over those matches.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.4m

The Arsenal star is in prolific form ahead of the north London derby, scoring eight goals in his last seven starts in all competitions.

Aubameyang also has a fine record at home to Spurs, with three goals and an assist in their last two meetings at Emirates Stadium.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.3m

A 19-point haul against Palace has earned the Spurs striker 350,000+ transfers in, more than any other player in the Gameweek.

Kane’s 12-point return against Arsenal earlier this season underlines his potential as a key captain pick.

Richarlison (EVE) £8.0m

The Brazilian produced an assist and seven points against Burnley in Gameweek 11.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LEI) £5.6m

The Leicester striker faces Sheff Utd at home on the back of three goals in his last five appearances.

Iheanacho can continue offering strong value against the Blades, who are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in 2020/21.
