Fantasy Football Dream Team: GW12

Teams to target: Chelsea

Brentford vs. Chelsea
Chelsea have made a superb start to life under new manager Graham Potter, winning five and drawing one in all competitions.

Mason Mount was the hero as they beat Aston Villa; however Kepa Arrizabalaga made numerous top quality saves in the first half.

Both have excelled under Potter and are good well priced options to bring in this week.

Potter has rotated his defensive options since coming to the club, so Kepa appears to the safest pick, especially with Reece James ruled out until at least December.

Opposition to target: Nottingham Forest

Brighton vs. Nottingham Forest
There are few gimmes in GW12; however Brighton at home to Nottingham Forest looks a guaranteed three points.

Nottingham Forest have endured a poor run of form, claiming just one point in their last seven league matches.

They weren’t bad against Wolves on the weekend; however struggled to create chances and missed their best one from the penalty spot.

Brighton have just one point from three games under Roberto de Zerbi; however performances have been good and Forest represent their best fixture.

Leandro Trossard scored a hat-trick at Anfield recently and will fancy his chances here, whilst Lewis Dunk is the best defensive option.

Other options

Liverpool vs. West Ham: Mohamed Salah
Salah has scored four goals in his last 120 minutes of football having bagged three off the bench against Rangers, before scoring the winner against Manchester City on Sunday.

On the whole he has made a slow start to the season; however represents an easy move if you own Kevin de Bruyne going into his blank game week.

A low owned Salah in FPL is rare and now could be the best time to get him into the team.

Newcastle United vs. Everton: Kieran Trippier
Trippier has been superb since joining Newcastle in January and few defenders can match his consistentcy this season.

In 10 matches this season, Trippier has returned in eight, with one goal, two assists and five clean sheets, including his most recent fixture away to Manchester United.

For defenders, only Joao Cancelo has scored more points than him this season and he remains a cheap option at 5.7.

GW12 Dream Team: Kepa; Dunk, Alexander-Arnold, Mepham, Trippier; Mount, Salah, Barnes, Trossard; Aubameyang, Wilson
