Coming off the back of an intense weekend of Premier League football, the midweek action promises to be just as lively.

Sparks are expected to fly, as always, between Liverpool and Everton, while the battle for the Champions League also heats up. Manchester United can stake their claim for a top four spot, but of course, for the players of United, Crystal Palace, Everton and Watford, this represents one last chance to cement their place in the starting line-ups for the weekend's FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.

As part of our partnership with DraftKings, we're taking a closer look at two players who could light it up this week - Manchester United's new hot youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Everton's Ramiro Funes Mori. Check it out below.

Fosu-Mensah might be the better technical defender, but Funes Mori is worth taking ahead of him because of his four goals this season. The Argentinian was hugely underrated when he first arrived in England, but he is an excellent passer of the ball, and has 6.2 Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG) to Fosu-Mensah's 4.2.


The Manchester United full-back does have better discipline, and could also bank +3 points for a clean sheet if the home side manage to shut out Crystal Palace, which they may well try to do.

Nonetheless, Funes Mori will find himself in a derby against Liverpool, and while that might see him concede more fouls than usual, it should also be end-to-end stuff. In terms of ownership, too, he is unlikely to be spotted by too many competitors ahead of this game, which could make him a great selection for your fantasy team.

Who do you think is the better option this week - Fosu-Mensah or Funes Mori? Leave a comment below!
