Fantasy Premier League: GW15 Dream Team

The Boxing Day round of fixtures are usually high scoring and little suggests 2020’s set will be any different.

Manchester City and Liverpool both have favourable home games and the choice of Kevin de Bruyne or Mohamed Salah as captain will be one many managers will have.

Tottenham will look to bounce back from consecutive defeats at Wolves, whilst two of the top four meet as Leicester City host Manchester United.

Leicester City vs. Manchester United: Bruno Fernandes (11.0)
Manchester United will to continue their excellent away run when they face Leicester City on Boxing Day.

Bruno Fernandes returned to the points in the 6-2 win over Leeds United in GW14 and he is expected to be heavily involved here.

Marcus Rashford has a good away record this term and will look to exploit the spaces Leicester will leave the United attack.

Jamie Vardy has an excellent record against the top six and he will always be a good selection for the Foxes.

Other options
Jamie Vardy (10.2)
Marcus Rashford (9.5)

Aston Villa vs. Crystal Palace: Emiliano Martinez (4.9)
Aston Villa have kept three consecutive clean sheets and will fancy their chances of a fourth in a row when they host Crystal Palace.

Emiliano Martinez has been the best goalkeeping option this year and leads the way for points despite being two games behind most other options.

The former Arsenal man remains less than 5.0m and is a great pick.

Jack Grealish and Anwar El Ghazi are in good form and should Villa win the pair will likely be involved.

Other options
Jack Grealish (7.8)
Anwar El Ghazi (5.7)

Fulham vs. Southampton: Che Adams (6.0)
Fulham go into a game with Southampton in surprisingly good form and can move away out of the relegation zone with a win.

Southampton have a few injuries, however there are a few good budget picks in the form of Che Adams and James Ward-Prowse.

Ademola Lookman at 5.0 is a really good cheap option for Fulham and the winger is probably due a goal.

Other options
James Ward-Prowse (6.3)
Ademola Lookman (5.0)

Arsenal vs. Chelsea: Christian Pulisic (8.2)
Arsenal desperately need a result when they host London rivals Chelsea on Boxing Day as they edge closer to the bottom three.

Chelsea have a few injury doubts, however will be massive favourites and the returning Christian Pulisic is a great option.

Kurt Zouma has the most headed goals from a defender this season and will look to build on that at the Emirates.

Other options
Kurt Zouma (5.8)
Timo Werner (9.3)

Manchester City vs. Newcastle United: Kevin de Bruyne (11.8)
Manchester City host Newcastle United in the Saturday evening game looking to move closer to the league leaders Liverpool.

They haven’t scored a great deal of goals this season, however will fancy their chances of racking up a few against Newcastle United.

Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling have kept the points topped up in recent weeks and should be among them again.

Defensively they have been excellent this season and Kyle Walker is a good pick after he was rotated in mid-week.

Other options
Raheem Sterling (11.4)
Kyle Walker (6.2)

Sheffield United vs. Everton: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.9)
Everton will look to make it four league wins in a row when they travel to rock bottom Sheffield United.

Dominic Calvert Lewin has enjoyed an incredible 2020-21 campaign and has blanked in just two of his matches so far.

He will look to be among the points on Saturday when he travels to his former employers.

Other options
Richarlison (7.8)
Yerry Mina (5.5)

Leeds United vs. Burnley: Patrick Bamford (6.2)
Leeds United have been one of the more enjoyable sides to watch this season and they host Burnley on Sunday.

Patrick Bamford has surprised many this season and will look to improve his tally of nine of the campaign.

Leeds are suspect to conceding from set pieces though and Chris Wood will fancy his chances of a goal against his old side.

Other options
Chris Wood (6.2)
Charlie Taylor (4.5)

West Ham United vs. Brighton: Vladimir Coufal (4.6)
West Ham will be looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat at Chelsea when they host Brighton.

Vladimir Coufal has been excellent since joining the club and he is likely to be in contention for a clean sheet and / or assist.

For the visitors, Danny Welbeck appears to be the best bet and at 5.5 represents excellent value.

Other options
Jared Bowen (6.4)
Danny Welbeck (5.5)

Liverpool vs. West Brom: Mohamed Salah (12.5)
Liverpool will be massive favourites when West Brom come to town on Sunday, as they look to cement top spot.

Mohamed Salah is enjoying an incredible campaign and scored 16 points in just a 30 minute cameo at Crystal Palace on the weekend.

Andrew Robertson has been brilliant this season for Pool and will look to get among the assists once again.

Sadio Mane ended a goal drought in the win over Palace and will likely be in the points against a struggling West Brom.

Other options
Andrew Roberson (7.3)
Sadio Mane (11.9)

Wolves vs. Tottenham: Harry Kane (11.0)
Wolves have struggled since the injury to Raul Jimenez and they host a Spurs side who have suffered consecutive losses.

Harry Kane and Heung Min Son both blanked in the defeat to Leicester last time out and it is hard to see them doing that in consecutive matches.

Pedro Neto is a very good option for the hosts and represents good value at less than 6.0.

Other options
Heung Min Son (9.7)
Pedro Neto (5.9)

GW15 Dream Team: Martinez; Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Salah (C), Grealish, Pulisic; Kane, Wood, Bamford
