Wednesday's football offers a much-needed break from the exhausting sagas at the very top and bottom of the Premier League table, but there is still plenty to play for.

The small matter of a Merseyside derby will be top of the agenda, while Manchester United can put pressure on Arsenal in fourth spot with a win against Crystal Palace. West Ham, meanwhile, showed against Leicester that they are not to be taken lightly, even if it would now be extremely difficult for them to make the top four.

As part of our partnership with DraftKings, we're shining the spotlight on a series of players who will dazzle on the big stage tonight - starting with the man who effectively ended Arsenal's title hopes last weekend - Yannick Bolasie.

It is easy to see how Yannick Bolasie totalled a cool 19 FPPG in his last match against Arsenal. Bolasie got the equaliser for Crystal Palace, albeit with a little help from Petr Cech, but he also managed a further two shots and five crosses.

At an average of 12.6 FPPG per game, he is a pretty steady choice for DraftKings players as his form improves following his return from injury.


Against Manchester United, expect plenty more long-range shots from him, and of course, the more he tests David de Gea, the more points he will earn for shots on goal. After all, in just 24 appearances this season, he has already had 53 attempts on goal, which suggests he will be in the thick of the action.

As one of Palace's fastest players, he could be key as Alan Pardew's men look to break down United, and if he is able to break down the wing, he should earn at least some points for crosses, and maybe even an assist.

Do you think Bolasie can take down Manchester United - or will Zaha get his revenge?
