We're eight games into the new Barclays Premier League season now and most of you Fantasy Premier League players will probably have a fairly settled side by now.

However, after Sergio Aguero's five-goal heroics against Newcastle on Saturday, we expect many of the league's that you are your mates are part of have been blown wide open, especially if some of you had made him captain.

Unfortunately next weekend we see the next round of international fixtures being played, which could be a good thing, as it can give many of you a chance to reassess your side. Here is a guide on who to pick in your fantasy teams for the next round of matches.

Petr Cech - Cech had an easy game in goal this week despite playing against Manchester United, gaining a clean sheet and earning seven fantasy points. There could yet be more 'easy' games to come with Arsenal playing Watford in two weeks time, it could be another clean sheet for the Gunners stopper.

Arsenal are also looking strong with 13 points in their last six games while the former Chelsea 'keeper has also on average conceded less than a goal a game this season with four clean sheets.


Scott Dann - The Crystal Palace defender has had a top season so far with a total of 36 fantasy points and a fine performance this weekend against West Brom. He has been a crucial part in a strong Crystal Palace team, which is currently sitting fourth in the Premier League, who like Arsenal have been prominent in their last six games picking up twelve points.

With Crystal Palace playing against a West Ham side that conceded twice last weekend against 19th placed Sunderland expect Dann and Palace to rack up another clean sheet.


Christian Eriksen - Eriksen saved Tottenham's blues against Swansea with a double strike to rescue a draw. It now seems like Eriksen is coming into form at just the right time, just before their home match against a manager-less Liverpool. He picked up 15 fantasy points this week and looks set to contend for more against a disrupted Liverpool side.

Alexis Sanchez - Although I have already included one Arsenal player in this list, Sanchez's performances have just been too good to ignore. With a double strike against Leicester last week and a Man of the Match performance against Manchester United this week. In this most recent run of good form, he has amassed a whopping 36 fantasy points in his last two outings.


Sergio Aguero - Aguero had perhaps one of the best games of his career bagging five goals in just 20 minutes against Newcastle, earning 25 fantasy points; the highest of any player this season. Aguero, after struggling earlier in the season, looks set to continue his fine form against Bournemouth in two weeks time.
