🌟 Alderweireld/Vertonghen TOT, £5.9m each

Given Tottenham’s full-backs rotation and Kieran Trippier’s recent injuries, it may be safest to opt for their Belgian centre-backs Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

🌟 Héctor Bellerín ARS, £5.4m

After playing his part in Arsenal’s clean sheet at home to Huddersfield, the attacking right-back’s next three games are Southampton (a), Burnley (H), Brighton (a).

🌟 Zanka HUD, £4.4m

Huddersfield have tightened up defensively of late and Zanka has been providing a goal-scoring threat from set-pieces ahead of back-to-back home games against Newcastle and Southampton.
