There are a number of exciting story lines developing ahead of this weekend. Manchester United have won both their opening matches despite not playing particularly well, and now face an out-of-sorts Newcastle side. Chelsea, on the other hand, haven't done enough to record a win yet and face a near must-win against West Brom.

I've taken the early season story lines into account and put together my picks for who you should be thinking of for your fantasy team(s):

Goalkeepers

Sergio Romero: Already had 2 clean sheets and will aim to keep another one against Newcastle.

Thibaut Courtois: Back from  suspension and Chelsea can't lose this one, WBA didn't score in their opening 2 games and I think they will not score against Chelsea on Sunday.

Alex McCarthy: The Palace keeper will fancy his chances against the Aston Villa and I expect a CS from him this week.

Defenders

Luke Shaw / Matteo Darmian: The two United full backs will bomb forward against Newcastle and will score lots of attaching points, One of them should be in your team this week.

Aleksandar Kolarov: He should be in your team already but if you still didn't buy him then you must do it asap! He has been on fire recently and he will keep on improving.

Jeff Schlupp: The Foxes left back will always bomb forward and will cause the Tottenham defense big problems with his pace, I expect a high score from him this week.

John Terry: I think he will be hurting after being subbed last week and will pop up this week with a goal ! It's always happening like that :)

Scott Dann : Just got a sneaky feeling that he might score this week.

Midfielders

Yohan Cabaye / Jason Puncheon: One of them should be in your team this week, I also expect a big score from them.

Juan Mata: Maybe this will be the week that finally Mata will score against Newcastle.

Gylfi Sigurdsson : He was so unlucky last week after he hit the bar with a fantastic strike. Anyone will fancy his chances against the miserable Sunderland defense.

Dimitri Payet: He looks a quality signing for West Ham and he is on all set pieces and scored last week against Leicester City.

Eden Hazard:  He has been so quiet recently and this should be his week to win the match for Chelsea.

Saido Mane: Such a quality player and will cause headache to the Watford defense this week, Scored a cool 15 points last week and I expect the same from him.

Strikers

Wayne Rooney / Memphis Depay : I currently have both of them and I really expect Rooney to score this week, He has been awful recently and he loves playing against Newcastle.

Alexis Sanchez: As a Liverpool fan,I am sure Alexis will cause plenty of problems for the Liverpool defense and I think he might score big points this week.

Sergio Aguero: He was man of the match against Chelsea and looks in top form, He must be in your team this week, simple as that.

Diafra Sakho: Was very unlucky last week not to score against the Foxes but will fancy his chances this week against Bournemouth.

Diego Costa : Chelsea must win this game and they will put all their hopes on Diego to save them this week.

I am currently on Romero, Shaw, Kolarov, Schlupp, Cabaye, Puncheon, Payet, Mata, Rooney, Aguero, Depay.

Who are you picking for your teams this week? Good luck to everyone.
