The Premier League continues apace with another full complement of fixtures this weekend, and here at FantasyBet we continue to offer you opportunities to profit!

Before we sink our teeth into the bookmakers’ odds from across the internet and analyse the relevant clean sheet and anytime goalscorer markets for Gameweek 16, let’s take a look at how our selections performed midweek …

A monster 80 point return was made possible thanks to double digit hauls from captain Harry Kane (24 points) and Callum Wilson (12) up front, with Riyad Mahrez (13) and Richarlison (10) also breaking the 10 point barrier from the middle of the park. Liverpool duo Xherdan Shaqiri and Mo Salah produced a further 13 points between them after combining for Liverpool’s third goal, meaning Marko Arnautovic was the only member of our front 7 that failed to produce any attacking returns. With no clean sheets in the Premier League in Gameweek 15, the first time that has happened in 8 years, it’s no surprise that our back line produced just 8 points.

Ahead of their Emirates clash with Huddersfield on Saturday, Arsenal top the bookies’ defensive rankings with a 50% chance of keeping a clean sheet. The Gunners have been far from their resolute best this season, recording just 2 shutouts at home, although they have only conceded more than once against the high-calibre attacks of Manchester City and Tottenham. Their opponents, meanwhile, have only blanked once in 7 road games, but have only found the net more than once on a single occasion. Taking all of that on board, we opt for the attacking threat of Hector Bellerin, who has provided 4 assists this term, 3 of which have come in front of his own fans.

Manchester United (47%) rank second prior to their hosting of 20th-placed Fulham. Like Arsenal, the Red Devils are in no defensive form whatsoever, but the fact that their opponents have failed to find the net in 5 of their last 6 away games means that the bookmakers rate their chances on Saturday. With injuries and uncertainty across the United back 4, David De Gea offers vital starting security and takes his place between the sticks for our squad.

Merseyside rivals Everton (40%) and Liverpool (36%) complete the top 4 defensive prospects for Gameweek 16. Marco Silva’s men entertain Watford, who have only scored twice in their last 5 matches, on Monday night, with the Toffees having kept 3 clean sheets in their last 5 attempts at Goodison Park. Liverpool, meanwhile, have the best defence in the top flight after 15 games, conceding just 6 goals – something they’ll need to rely on against an attacking Bournemouth outfit on Saturday lunchtime. Lucas Digne and Trent Alexander-Arnold both offer superb potential going forward at £5.0m each and make our starting XI.

It’s as you were on our bench, with the value it provides continuing to prove unbeatable. Ben Hamer (9%) is unlikely to feature against Arsenal, but is still the likeliest £4.0m keeper to see any game time, whilst Ryan Bennett (35%) Aaron Wan-Bissaka (25%) remain superb options in defence at the same price point. This weekend they travel to Newcastle and West Ham respectively.

With Huddersfield conceding an average of 2.28 goals per game away from home this season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Premier League top scorer (10 goals) tops the bookies’ attacking rankings and sports our captain’s armband for Gameweek 16. The Gabon international has scored 8 of those goals in his last 8 appearances, meaning he won’t be short of confidence on Saturday afternoon.

Joining Aubameyang up front in our starting XI are his teammate Alexandre Lacazette (56%) and West Ham’s Chicharito (34%). Lacazette has a goal and an assist in his last 2 games, both coming from the bench, and will surely return to Unai Emery’s starting XI this weekend. Chicharito, meanwhile, notched a brace at Newcastle last Saturday and looks set to continue in Mauricio Pellegrini’s starting lineup with Marko Arnautovic set for a spell on the sidelines. He faces a Crystal Palace side that suffered a demoralising 3-1 defeat on Tuesday against 10 man Brighton.

In midfield, Mohamed Salah (49%) remains our headline act. Despite starting on the bench in midweek, the Egyptian wizard still managed to register an assist and has returned 48 points in his last 7 games (4 goals, 3 assists). He travels to Bournemouth, who are without clean sheet in their last 6 in all competitions, for Saturday’s early kick off.

Across Merseyside, Richarlison (40%) was back amongst the goals on Wednesday night, bagging a 10 point return for his owners, and will host Watford on Monday night, with the Hornets keeping a solitary clean sheet on their travels so far this season.

Completing our starting XI are Manchester United duo Anthony Martial (45%) and Paul Pogba (35%). Martial is in stunning form, with 7 goals in his last 8 games for Jose Mourinho’s side, whilst Pogba has 3 goals and 3 assists to his name this campaign, albeit with no returns in his last 4 outings. Still, opponents Fulham are yet to keep a clean sheet since returning to the top flight, and also have the worst defence in the division, both overall (36 conceded) and away from home (20 conceded).

Taking the first spot on our bench is Cardiff’s Victor Camarasa (13%), who has a goal and an assist in his debut Premier League season to date, whilst he has now been confirmed as the Bluebirds’ first-choice penalty taker following Joe Ralls’ miss from the spot against West Ham on Tuesday. He has a home game against Southampton to look forward to this weekend.
