Fantasy Football Dream Team: GW16

Teams to target: Manchester City & Liverpool

Manchester City vs. Brentford
Brentford aren’t the easiest of opponents; however anything other than a comfortable home win here would be a real surprise.

Manchester City were able to rotate the squad in the cup mid-week making the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Joao Cancelo are superb options here.

Erling Haaland was an unused substitute as he returns from injury, which is probably a good thing, so he should start here.

With unlimited moves going into the World Cup, I recommend filling your City quota for the final game before the break.

Liverpool vs. Southampton
Despite their poor form this season, Liverpool’s attacking output has been good and they will be desperate to build on an impressive win at Tottenham last week.

They host a Southampton side who sacked their manager during the week and have a poor record at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah will be one of the most brought players this week and if Haaland doesn’t start, he probably is the best captaincy option this week.

Defensively Liverpool haven’t been great, but you would fancy them to keep a clean sheet here and Trent Alexander-Arnold or Andrew Robertson would be a good addition.

A real one week punt going into the unlimited transfers would be the addition of either Roberto Firmino or Darwin Nunez.

Opposition to target: Wolves

Wolves vs. Arsenal
Wolves have been a major disappointment this season and only Nottingham Forest are below them in the division.

They’ve always struggled for goals, but a return of eight in 14 matches is an incredibly poor return.

This week they host the league leaders Arsenal, who have been superb all campaign.

Defensively they have looked much better with Ben White at full-back and the return of William Saliba to the side.

Going forward they need to be more clinical but you’d be confident owning any of their front three going into this one.

Other options

Nottingham Forest vs. Crystal Palace: Wilfried Zaha & Eberechi Eze
Nottingham Forest are starting to show some improvement defensively, but they remain one of the teams to target.

Wilfried Zaha ended a little barren run in more forward positions last week in the win over West Ham United, scoring one and assisting the winner.

Eberechi Eze has been one of the best budget options this season and would be a good one week punt.

Tottenham vs. Leeds United: Ivan Perisic
Incredibly Ivan Perisic, a defender on the game, started up front in the defeat to Liverpool last time out.

He was unlucky not to score, twice hitting the woodwork.

Even if he moves back to a wing-back role here, he is a good one off bet for the visit of Leeds United.

GW16 Dream Team: Pickford; Perisic, Cancelo, Alexander-Arnold, Saliba; Martinelli, Salah, Foden, Eze; Haaland, Firmino
