Good news, all. The Premier League is back – and it could be another open and unpredictable fantasy gameweek. Some of the teams that surprised us with excellent starts – Bournemouth, Watford, Wolves – have been more inconsistent of late, while early strugglers such as Huddersfield, Newcastle and Cardiff are starting to get some points in the bank.
There are no major bankers this weekend, although home fans will be expecting three points at both Old Trafford, where Manchester United host Crystal Palace, and Goodison, where Cardiff are the visitors. Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal all face potentially challenging away games, while Fulham hosting Southampton and Newcastle’s trip to Burnley on Monday night are of great interest in the bottom half. Oh, and there’s also the small matter of a London derby between Tottenham and Chelsea at Wembley.
