The team is set keeping the League Cup midweek fixtures in mind.

Fantasy Premier League: Manchester United’s resurgent form against top six teams continued as they beat Manchester City at the Etihad to compound the defending champion’s woes. Liverpool FC capitalised on the slip with a brilliant victory against Bournemouth while Arsenal returned to form against a fighting West Ham United.

Spurs put five past a clueless Burnley to recover from the midweek loss to Manchester United but Chelsea succumbed to a resurgent Everton with a scoreline of 3-1.

Gameweek 16 Review – 51 Points

Captain Kane had a heroic performance as he led the pack with 32 points. The striker as helped by Andrew Robertsons’ six points but the rest of the team disappointed with mediocre performances. Lys Mousset, John Lundstarm, Tammy Abraham, Caglar Soyuncu and Youri Tielemans got two points each while John McGinn, De Bruyne and Rui Patricio got a point each as the team fell just short of the average.

The average for the week was  54 points.

Gameweek 17 Transfers

With Lys Mousset disappointing yet again, the Sheffield United striker is moved out in favour of Jordan Ayew. The Crystal Palace winger has a very easy run of fixtures and with the Cup starting this week as his contributions will be vital.

Lewis Dunk is also moved out in favour of a more attacking option in the form of full-back Jetro Willems of Newcastle United.

Gameweek 17 Line-up

The formation chosen is 4-4-2. Rui Patricio faces a revamped Tottenham at Molineux and therefore moves to the bench. Tom Heaton starts in his stead.

Andrew Robertson, John Lundstram, Jetro Willems and Caglar Soyuncu start in a four-man defence with injured Patrick van Aanholt moving to the bench.
