Five Players You Should Pick In Your Fantasy Team:

Anthony Martial (Manchester United):

The Frenchman is becoming ‘Mr Dependable’ for Manchester United. Since the restart, Martial has found his peak scoring six goals and assisting a further four in all competitions. He also gave the best season outcome of his career. The 24-year-old is sure to give the Foxes trouble or two and he, of course, deserves a place in your fantasy team.

Jamie Vardy (Leicester City):

Leicester’s no 9 and their phenom. Top of the scoring chart with 21 strikes and never look to drop off even at the age of 33, Jamie Vardy will look to grab the golden boot as well as help his club grab a group stage spot in the next season’s Champions League. His brilliance is reflected once again in his scoring spree of four goals and an assist after the restart and he would conclude this brilliant season for his team with a win on Sunday. He’s definitely in.

Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United):

The Portuguese had changed the team ever since he arrived at the club in January and will be wishing his side to claim the top four spot. His rich number of scoring and assisting goals per match has proved vital for the Red devils. They will be wishing his magic works out on Sunday to be regarded as a memorable signing done by the club after a long time.

Mason Greenwood: The Certain Star In Manchester's New GMR

Mason Greenwood (Manchester United):

The 18-year-old is destined to be the next big thing coming out of Premier League football. Mason Greenwood is a joy to watch for the United faithful and will be hoping that he continues to deliver his staggering numbers in seasons to come. His tally of ten goals and one assist in eleven appearances this season is more than impressive and the best is yet to come out from him. This sensation is sure to earn a lot of points for your fantasy side.

Marcus Rashford (Manchester United):

A crucial member of the front three, Marcus Rashford has also been at his peak since the league restarted. A contribution of 6 goals to the team in that period and his partnership with Martial is proving to be one of the deadliest combinations in the Premier League. He is also one of United stars that you should pick ahead of the weekend clash.
