The prospects of Alexis Sanchez (£10.0m) in Fantasy Premier League could be improved by his new role as a forward.
The Chilean made his first start since Gameweek 6 in Manchester United’s 2-1 win at AFC Bournemouth last weekend.
He played as a lone striker in a 4-3-3, flanked by Anthony Martial (£7.5m) and Juan Mata (£6.2m).
Filling Lukaku hole
Sanchez made a quick impact, supplying the assist for Martial’s first-half goal on Saturday.
The South American kept his place for Man Utd’s UEFA Champions League win over Juventus in midweek.
And with Romelu Lukaku (£10.8m) still a doubt for their trip to Manchester City, Sanchez may lead the line again.
United’s schedule after their Gameweek 12 derby can raise interest in their key attackers.
Three of their subsequent four opponents, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Fulham, score just two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).
Man Utd's next five fixtures
Martial’s run of five goals in the last four Gameweeks makes the Frenchman their go-to attacker.
But if Sanchez can secure a run of starts as a centre-forward, his 1.4 per cent ownership suggests he could be a major differential.
