Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 25: Strikers

Robin van Persie has now scored in both games since returning to Manchester United’s starting line-up, and if he continues then we all have a decision to make.

Is he worth £13.6m of your Fantasy Premier League money? Can you even reshuffle the squad to get him? We need convincing of his fitness before ringing the changes in his pursuit.

If he gets back to his best though then it could end up being a Suárez situation whereby not to have him, indeed have him as captain, is to fall behind.

He could notch a hatful at home to bottom-of-the-table Fulham this weekend, we reckon.

Sunderland’s on-loan Fabio Borini has two goals and two assists from his last three and a home game against Hull City to come this weekend, so he looks good value at £6.2m.

£6.4m gets you Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez, scorer of ten Premier League goals already this season, while £7m gets you Rickie Lambert, scorer and creator of seven apiece.

With Saints at home to Stoke City this weekend, you might want to have a think about them.

If Andy Carroll’s red card gets rescinded then it could be an intriguing battle of the resurgent target men between him and Christian Benteke at Villa Park.

£7.2m gets you Carroll, £8.7m Benteke, while £4.6m is looking a nifty price for weekend goalscorers Steven Naismith (Everton) and Kenwyne Jones (Cardiff City).
