Look no further than Liverpool’s strikers for fantasy football points

| 04.10.2013

Everton have fielded the top points scorer in each of the past two fantasy football gameweeks, but it is their neighbours Liverpool who are set to enjoy the most profitable fixture this time around.

Crystal Palace are the visitors at Anfield, and Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez are both likely to cash-in against Ian Holloway’s beleaguered side.

Sturridge collected 14 points to Suarez’ 13 as Liverpool won 3-1 at Sunderland in their last match, and it is a toss-up which of the pair will outdo the other against the Eagles.

Arsenal’s impressive form has seen a representative from their midfield make the ‘Dream Team’ in each of the past three gameweeks.

Aaron Ramsey has been there twice after recording scores of 15 and 13 in the Gunners’ last two away games, and the Welshman could top the charts this week as his team travel to West Brom.

Their north London rivals Spurs have also relied on their midfielders of late, with Paulinho and Gylfi Sigurdsson looking particularly dangerous going forward.

The Icelandic international has scored three in his past two home matches and could repeat the 16-point haul that saw him top the charts in gameweek four as West Ham visit White Hart Lane.

Despite Manchester United’s recent terrible form in the league, Wayne Rooney has proved a dependable asset for fantasy football frontlines after bagging three in three games.

Rooney is expected to be fit for the trip to Sunderland, who have conceded more goals than any other side in the Premier League, and both he and Robin van Persie are in the running for top points scorer at the Stadium of Light.

An outside bet worthy of consideration is Yaya Toure despite Manchester City’s tricky looking fixture at home to Everton.

The Toffees have conceded two in each of their past two matches and Toure has scored four in six this season, including one in each of City’s home matches.
