If the Premier League doesn't stop then nor does the FPL world. Neil Monnery looks ahead to the options ahead of GW20...

"Marko Arnautovic - £6.8m. With three goals in four games coupled with a middling price, how have only 1.4% of teams brought in the Austrian midfielder?"

Eight to like

Mesut Özil - £9.3m. The fantasy world still hasn't caught up to the German's burst of good form. Only 2.7% of teams have selected him but he's shown he's back to near his best. He's scored in back-to-back games and is very much in the mix to be your number two or three midfielder.

Marko Arnautovic - £6.8m. With three goals in four games coupled with a middling price, how have only 1.4% of teams brought in the Austrian midfielder? It is time to get fully on board with his fantasy talents and with Bournemouth next up, who would bet against it being four goals in five?

Gabriel Jesus - £10.2m. Picking which Manchester City striker is going to start has been a fantasy dilemma all season long. Sergio Aguero has got the nod three games on the spin and that should lead to the young Brazilian getting his chance at Newcastle. A chance to score big.

Jesse Lingard - £6.0m. With plenty of game time, he's becoming a real fantasy option. I have no doubts that Jose Mourinho is still ticking that he hit the post having rounded the keeper on Saturday night but his performances are worthy of keeping his starting spot. Should he continue to do so, he's a bargain that only 4.4% of teams are currently taking advantage of.

Callum Wilson - £5.7m. I'm starting on a run of three very cheap strikers worth looking at here with the Bournemouth front man. Defoe is out and King is rated at 50/50 to play. With West Ham rolling into town on Boxing Day, this is the type of game Eddie Howe's men have to win. A chance for a big day for Wilson.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin - £5.4m. Everton have picked it up in recent weeks and DLC seems to be the man who is going to lead the line. He's scored twice in the past five and provided the same number of assists. I'm not expecting him to blow your socks off but in terms of value for money, the youngster is certainly providing it.

Peter Crouch - £4.8m. The former England centre-forward has started five of Stoke's past six games. Even though he's only come up with two assists in that span, to get a player so cheap who plays this many minutes would give you the opportunity to splash out big bucks elsewhere. Suddenly he's worth looking at.

Marc Albrighton - £5.5m. We all have at least one bargain basement midfielder among our ranks. It is time for Marc Albrighton to get some love. Three assists in his past six games is a solid return. Watford away on Boxing Day is a nice spot as they've just collapsed defensively.


Two to avoid

Willian - £6.7m. After a stonking performance at Huddersfield, he's had two games with nothing to show for his talents. With Alvaro Morata back from suspension, it wouldn't shock me in the slightest if its Willian who makes way.

Arsenal's defence - Various. On paper Crystal Palace away might be the type of game you'd want after the 3-3 thriller with Liverpool on Friday night, think again. The last time they didn't score at home was against Southampton in GW5. I don't expect a clean sheet in this one.


Captain's pick

Just copy and paste something to do with Liverpool and Manchester City attack minded players. Every week they are sure fire options to put up big numbers. Spurs also seem to be coming back into form with 11 goals in their past four.

*Remember the deadline to submit your teams for GW20 is 11:30 on Boxing Day.
