The Scout pinpoints the teams with the most favourable schedules, according to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), when the Premier League returns on 26 December, identifying which players Fantasy Premier League managers should consider with their unlimited transfers.

Fulham

Along with their London rivals Chelsea, the Cottagers are one of only two sides to play four fixtures in the next three Gameweeks.

According to the FDR, two of those encounters, at home to Southampton in Gameweek 18 and at Leicester City in the first match of their Gameweek 19, score only two.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.8m) offers the best prospect of attacking returns over Fulham's favourable short-term run.

The Serbian forward has scored nine goals in only 12 appearances and has produced 56 shots, more than any other player in 2022/23 Fantasy.

His 48 shots in the box are more than three times the total of any team-mate.

Midfielder Andreas Pereira (£4.6m), meanwhile, has been the Cottagers' top value player and has matched the 61 points of Mitrovic.

The Brazilian has combined two goals with five assists and is their most-owned pick in Fantasy, found in over 23 per cent of squads.

Other options

Winger Willian (£5.5m) boasted a strong all-round influence on Fulham's attack prior to the season break.

His seven shots on target in the last six Gameweeks were more than any team-mate, while his 12 shots and 13 chances created both placed second.

At the back, Kenny Tete (£4.4m) is the standout pick with three assists in nine appearances.

The Dutchman could prove a useful bench option for those willing to take a risk on his side's potential for clean sheets.
