Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) is set to make his first Premier League appearance of 2020 after being named in the Leicester line-up to face Southampton.
Not only has Vardy been in exceptional form when starting this season but today is also his first outing since becoming a father again and it’s his birthday too.
Brendan Rodgers has made some changes to his Leicester side with the injured Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) missing out, replaced by Hamza Choudhury (£4.3m), and Youri Tielemans (£6.3m) consigned to the bench by Harvey Barnes (£5.9m) returning to the starting line-up.
Meanwhile, opponents Southampton line-up largely as predicted in our Team News tab, Danny Ings (£6.7m) leading the attack in a week where plenty of owners left him on the bench.
The all-important Fantasy assets start for Manchester United with Anthony Martial (£7.9m) up-front and Marcus Rashford (£9.2m) on the flanks.
They are also boosted by Harry Maguire (£5.2m) coming through his recent injury problems and the fact that Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) is absent for Norwich, replaced by Adam Idah (£4.4m).
Chelsea shape-up in a 4-3-3 system with Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m) coming in for the injured Christian Pulisic (£7.0m) on the left flank of attack.
Meanwhile, Fikayo Tomori (£4.7m) misses out for the second match in a row, this time on the bench with Kurt Zouma (£4.7m). Antonio Rüdiger (£6.0m) and Andreas Christensen (£4.9m) are the chosen centre-back pairing.
Sean Dyche has made a rare deviation from his favoured 4-4-2 formation as Burnley prepare to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, lining the Clarets up in a 4-5-1.
Chris Wood (£6.2m) leads the attack with Aaron Lennon (£4.7m) and Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) providing the width from midfield.
Matt Lowton (£4.2m) makes his first start since Gameweek 16, coming in for the benched Phil Bardsley (£4.3m).
Wolves are another team lined-up how we predicted, with Pedro Neto (£5.0m) and Adama Traoré (£5.7m) either side of Raùl Jiménez (£7.5m).
Carlo Ancelotti looks to have gone with a 4-4-2 formation for his fourth Premier League match in charge of Everton with Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.9m) joined up-front by Richarlison (£8.1m).
Bernard (£6.4m) and Theo Walcott (£6.2m) look to be providing the width in midfield which may lead to less advanced roles for Lucas Digne (£5.7m) and Djibril Sidibé (£5.4m).
Brighton hand a first start of the season to Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.8m), who starts on the flanks of attack, joined by Neal Maupay (£5.8m) and Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) in a front-three.
