Goalkeepers

Kasper Schmeichel - The Danish goalkeeper is looking to become one of the goalkeepers of the season and such praise will be set to continue if he contributes a clean sheet against a poor Newcastle United side on Monday night.

Joe Hart - Manchester City might have their title hopes disappearing as fast as they know it, but England's number one is still showing week in and week out why he has been one of the best goalkeepers in the league and surely will provide another great performance on the weekend against Norwich.

Hugo Lloris - Despite conceding three goals against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League, nothing will be repeated this weekend against a poor Aston Villa side, in which the Frenchman will have to put aside Thursday's bad performance for a good one on Sunday against the relegation bound side.

Defenders

Aleksandar Kolarov - One of the best defenders in the Premier League, he has been solid as a left back for the Citizens and will definitely knit that back four well to try and stop Norwich City from scoring any goals past Joe Hart.

Toby Alderweireld - The Spurs defender did wonderful against Arsenal last week and will look to do the same against Villa, with Euro 2016 coming close and trying to impressive Marc Wilmots even more.

Virgil van Dijk - The Dutch defender has been sensational for this Southampton side and even more proof will be shown against Stoke City.

Charlie Daniels - A cheap buy with good performances for the promoted side, a good performance against Swansea City might be good enough to keep Bournemouth's chances for another season.

Robert Huth - The German defender has had a lot of experience in this game, that he would never expected to be apart of a sensational Leicester City under Claudio Ranieri. Expect the same for him this Monday evening.

Midfielders

Riyad Mahrez - Many consider this Algerian as the best player this season and is surely going to be it at the end, Leicester have been soaring as higher as they ever have been and it's all thanks to this midfielder with his creativity with the ball and helping provide a great partnership with Jamie Vardy.

Marko Arnautovic - The Austrian midfielder has been one of the best players in the league and for Stoke at his position that there is no stopping him and performances against Southampton might prove to be a good buy for many users out there.

Georginio Wijnaldum - The Dutchman has saved Newcastle from being lower than they have ever been and in the biggest game of their season, they will have to, and he will too, has to get a sensational performance against Leicester City.

Christian Eriksen - The Danish midfielder has also been a genius for his Spurs side under Mauricio Pochettino and will quickly have to bounce back for their performances in the Europa League against Aston Villa.

Dusan Tadic - The Serbian midfielder has been great for the Southampton side who seems to be performing well alongside Graziano Pelle up front, expect him to create various chances against this Stoke side

Gylfi Sigurdsson - An underrated player for some, against Bournemouth, the Icelandic will surely be the main man to fear for the Welsh side heading into this big clash against the recently promoted side.

Forwards

Jamie Vardy - One of the strikers of the season, expect him to score and continue to soar as higher as ever before with his form all season long, especially against a weak Newcastle side, as Euro 2016 awaits.

Sergio Agüero - Another, who recently has stated will leave Manchester after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, will need another great performance against Norwich, as he has done various times in front of goal.

Graziano Pelle - The Italian is looking towards Euro 2016, and if more goals can be scored, just like he can do against Stoke, then Antonio Conte might start getting ready to prep him up for the tournament in France.

Harry Kane - The wonderboy for Spurs, goals have been coming from him day in and day out, and just like Vardy, he will look to score this weekend as he continues to impress each of us every week in and week out.
