wo of the most in-form players in Fantasy Premier League, Bruno Fernandes (£10.9m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m), go head-to-head at Old Trafford in Gameweek 12.

Manchester United’s Fernandes has four goals, three assists and 44 points in the last four Gameweeks.

Fernandes created 16 chances during that period, more than any other player in FPL.

And he also produced 16 shots, second only to the 18 of De Bruyne.

Back De Bruyne?

Manchester City’s Belgian looks back to his very best, having recorded two double-figure hauls in a row against Burnley and Fulham.

Twenty-four of De Bruyne’s 53 points this season have come in the last two Gameweeks.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) and Timo Werner (£9.5m) are also in strong form ahead of their meeting at Goodison Park.

Everton forward Calvert-Lewin has blanked only twice all season, scoring 11 goals in the first 11 Gameweeks.

Werner has produced points in four of Chelsea‘s last five matches.

His six big chances over the last four Gameweeks is a league-leading total.

Forward alternatives

There are two other forwards for FPL managers to consider.

Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) has four goals and three assists in his last six matches ahead of a home encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Leicester City striker has scored in four of his last five meetings with the Seagulls.

Danny Ings (£8.3m) returned from injury to score Southampton’s winner against Brighton last time out.

Ings now has a home fixture against bottom side Sheffield United.

Time to trust Aubameyang?

A home match against Burnley could help Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.5m) return to the scoresheet.

The Arsenal star, who is classified as a midfielder in FPL, has managed a single goal in the last 10 Gameweeks.

But he has a prolific record against Sunday’s opponents, scoring seven goals in five meetings.
