Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) are the fifth most-owned forward and midfielder respectively ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

Vardy was the standout performer when the sides last met in Gameweek 3, scoring a hat-trick to earn his season-high haul of 17 points.

De Bruyne, meanwhile, boasts a major all-round threat against the Foxes. His 13 shots and 12 chances created over Man City’s last four matches are both more than any team-mate.

Both sides also offer strong in-form differentials in Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m). 

Iheanacho has five goals and 35 points in his last three appearances, while Mahrez has 12 and 18-point hauls in his last three. 

Back the Gunners?

Arsenal pair Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.5m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) entertain Liverpool in prolific form.

Aubameyang has scored five goals and recorded 37 points in his last three outings at Emirates Stadium, while Lacazette has scored in each of his last three starts for the Gunners.

Diogo Jota (£6.7m) could prove to be Liverpool’s primary source of goals, having scored in three of his last four starts for the Merseysiders.

Jota also netted three goals for Portugal on international duty.

Tempting differentials

Finally, Leeds United duo Raphinha (£5.7m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.7m) could bring in big returns at home against Sheffield United.

The Blades are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet away from home this season.

Raphinha’s 24 chances created and 18 shots both put him among the top two players over the last six Gameweeks.

Bamford is expected to recover from a knock in time for Saturday’s match. He scored and earned eight points against Sheff Utd in Gameweek 3.
