Harry Kane (c)
To open our Gameweek 14 picks, the red-hot Harry Kane is back on the Fantasy menu.
Despite the Lilywhites’ first league defeat since the opening day of the season last time out, many managers will turn to Spurs in search of points this weekend.
Interestingly, Kane has reached double figures in assists before goals this term, but with the England skipper just one short of ten strikes also, GW14 could see that change.
Five points behind his strike partner Son Heung-min in the overall standings, the two Spurs men continue to ride high in the rankings once more.
Kane – perhaps remarkably – is owned by almost 20% less than his Korean cohort, and as Leicester City travel to North London, an open, but perhaps close contest is expected.
The striker has netted 10 goals in the last eight league games against the Foxes, and after netting a brace the last time the sides met, Kane could be captaincy material this weekend.
To partner Kane in attack, compatriot Dominic Calvert-Lewin could prove to be a handy boost in points also in Gameweek 14.
The second-highest scoring number nine, the Everton forward continues consistently to rack up the spoils, despite his form having tailed off a little in recent weeks.
On double figures for the season after only 13 games, GW14 sees Calvert-Lewin with another clear opportunity to add to his haul this term.
Arsenal gained their first point in five games against Southampton in midweek, but travel to Goodison Park knowing a perhaps stiffer test awaits.
Gabriel has been one of the Gunners’ few plus points this season, but will be absent after his dismissal against the Saints.
That should suit Calvert-Lewin down to the ground.
Having scored five times in his last seven, the Englishman has managed to navigate the regular – now extended – absence of Lucas Digne and his balls into the box from a wide area.
The Gunners might attempt to return the capital with a point, but looking at the personal they have at the back, Calvert-Lewin is primed to ensure that won’t happen.
Whilst Manchester United’s roller-coaster season continues on, so in rather apt fashion, comes the rising form of Marcus Rashford.
After a quiet start to the season, the Red Devils’s forward now has three goals in as many games, after his brace against Sheffield United on Thursday evening.
As United prepare to face-off with old rivals Leeds United for the first time in a league game in 14 years, Rashford could carry on his form of late here.
The Whites will relish a trip to Old Trafford, but travel across the Pennines knowing they have conceded seven times in their least three games.
Five of those of have come on the road, where Chelsea exposed Marcelo Bielsa‘s penchant to attack the opposition at Stamford Bridge.
Goals are surely on the menu here, and together with Rashford’s differential 7.9% ownership, could give fantasy managers the edge in GW14.
It appears Liverpool are back in the box seat to retain their Premier League title.
After picking up a huge win against Spurs in midweek, the Reds hold a three-point lead, and Andy Robertson will be central to the visitors’ hopes at Crystal Palace in Gameweek 14.
Whilst last year’s fantasy sensation Trent Alexander-Arnold has endured a difficult start to the season through injury, his full-back teammate Robertson appear to have taken his mantle this term.
Though his value has been a put-off for many managers, the Scot’s four assists this season have been vital to Liverpool.
On corner duties still, Robertson assisted Roberto Firmino‘s winner at Anfield last time out, and on half the occasions he has grabbed an assist, has taken home bonus points.
Liverpool have began to err on the side of caution at times this season, and that could continue at Selhurst Park.
Robertson continues to be a threat down the flanks this term, and in what could be a close contest in south London, may have a vital say.
Punt of the Week: Charlie Taylor
Gameweek 14’s flight of fantasy swings into Turf Moor, as Charlie Taylor and Burnley begin to look a little more assured.
After picking up a shock win away to Arsenal last weekend, the Clarets then frustrated Aston Villa, as the Lancashire side went three games unbeaten.
Having played every league minute of the season, Taylor has notched back-to-back clean sheets, as Wolves roll arrive in GW14.
As the Black Country outfit continue on with talisman Raul Jimenez, the goals look a little dry for the visiting side, who Burnley will look to further smother here.
Taylor has been a solid presence in his side’s three-game unbeaten stint and given Wolves’ wide play, Taylor could be a focal point in shutting the visitors down.
With an assist on opening day also, there is the hope of attacking spoils in addition.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 14 deadline is Saturday, 11am GMT.
