______________________________________________________________

Goalkeepers

Petr Cech (ARS) - Playing against his former side for the first time since the 2015 FA Community Shield, where the Gunners won 1-0. Now his former club where he's won everything is in a must win situation to get back into shape and get out of the bottom half of the league. For Arsenal, Arsene Wenger would love to get a first time victory against Jose Mourinho's Chelsea. Saturday is the perfect scene.

David De Gea (MUN) - After winning the derby against Liverpool, De Gea will now have to recover from the 2-1 loss midweek at PSV as they take on Southampton and look to maintain momentum.

Joe Hart (MC) - With City not yet conceding a goal, Hart should remain in your thoughts each week until the Manchester club's form dips. West Ham will be a test, but he has a good chance at another win, if not a clean sheet.

Defenders

Marcos Rojo (MU) - A replacement for the injured Luke Shaw, either him or Daley Blind will side in that left back spot and should be good value for your team.

Lauren Koscielny (ARS) - Clearly the key defender against Chelsea, a clean sheet IS possible, but only if he's in top form

Aleksandar Kolarov (MCI)- The Serbian has been great having been unbeaten in all matches in the Premier League and not conceding a goal yet.

Matteo Darmian (MU) - The Italian has been impressive in all the matches for Manchester United, expect him to stop Graziano Pelle and co.

Midfielders

Ross Barkley (EVE) - Barkley has been in very impressive form for Everton so far this season. Swansea would be the perfect opponent to see him contribute at the highest level, and he should be up for it.

Eden Hazard (CHE) - Can he make the difference against Arsenal? Although it's not been not the best of starts, a match at Arsenal will surely (hopefully) set the difference for him in an all important match.

Riyad Mahrez (LEI) - If healthy, he should usually be in your team. In an amazing Leicester side that has been impressive all season, there is no doubt that he should be on your team.

Alexis Sanchez (ARS) - Also like Hazard, the Chilean has not been impressive so far. However, in an important match against Chelsea, he surely is trying his best to better his Belgian counterpart at the Emirates on Saturday.

Strikers

Diego Costa (CHE) - After a good Champions League outing in which he scored a goal as a substitute, this is the match for Costa and his Chelsea teammates to shine.

Romelu Lukaku (EVE) - The key man for the Toffees, but it will be tough against this impressive Swansea side.

Sergio Aguero (MC) - Back from injury, if he can avoid aggravating his knee against West Ham, expect him to score.

Christian Benteke (LIV): The Belgian striker scored a wonder goal against Manchester United last week, and I expect him to score again against Norwich.

While there is still plenty of time for second-guessing and subsequent shifting, currently my teams are:

Hart / Clyne / Gomez /Darmian /Koscielny/Albrighton / Mahrez / Hazard /Sterling / Pelle / Aguero (Official BPL)

De Gea/ Darmian / Dann / Kolarov/ Skrtel/ Blind / Montero/ Mata / Toure / Aguero / Benteke (Fantrax)
