MailOnline Fantasy Football: 5 players to give you an edge

The Premier League is back and with it comes another round of fixtures for fantasy football fans to chew over.

But who should you pick for MailOnline’s brilliant Fantasy Football game? Sportsmail have assessed the best bargains available ahead of the weekend’s clashes.

Here are six players who could make the difference, with a number of star names tipped for a return to form. 

Alexandre Lacazette – £8.5million

Back amongst the goals against Crystal Palace, we’re tipping him to score his 10th Premier League goal against Swansea on Tuesday.

Sadio Mane – £7.5million

Surprisingly, Liverpool failed to score at Swansea last time out, but we’re confident it won’t happen again as they travel to Huddersfield. 

Firmino and Salah are already hugely popular, and looking at recent form, Mane should be too.

Theo Walcott – £5.6million

An assist on his debut, we’re hoping he’ll go one better and get on the scoresheet against Leicester. 

At just £5.6m, he’s an absolute bargain.

Raheem Sterling – £8.8million

A little bit behind De Bruyne and Aguero when it comes to being ownership, but Sterling has outscored both this season. 

With the injury to Sane, he’s a sure starter, and will be looking to add to his 14 goals and eight assists for the season.

Alex Sanchez – £8.6million

Manchester United’s new signing is expected to feature in what should be a thoroughly entertaining tie at Wembley. 

Get him in before the bandwagon starts.

Captain Recommendation

Select a captain for double points and there’s plenty of worthwhile contenders. 

Sergio Aguero looks a safe bet, and Salah rarely lets us down. 

Eden Hazard also looks very tempting with Chelsea hosting Bournemouth.
