Nicolas Jackson

  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (A), Tottenham (H); Predicted Points: 10.5

It's full steam ahead for Chelsea's Nicolas Jackson having avoided a booking and two-game suspension in the defeat to Arsenal last time out. He's started nine consecutive league matches, with three goals and three assists in that period.

A 14-point haul in the 6-0 win over Everton in Gameweek 33 - his second double-digit return of the season - was the standout performance in this spell. His biggest return of the campaign so far came in the reverse fixture against upcoming opponents Tottenham, scoring a hat-trick against their nine men.

Tottenham midfielder Brennan Johnson has become a mainstay on their right flank in recent games, outscoring popular team-mate Son Heung-min since the international break with one goal and two assists in four appearances.

His routes to points are plentiful given both his goal and assist threat. The Wales international has had four big chances on goal in his last four appearances, which is third among midfielders in this spell, and has also made seven key passes in this period.

Bruno Fernandes

  • Fixture: Burnley (H); Predicted Points: 5.8

Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes has been a surprise package in recent games, with six goals in his last four. He's beginning to rediscover the form he showed on arrival at Old Trafford, where he finished the 2020/21 season as the highest-scoring fantasy asset.

The attacking midfielder hasn't blanked at home in his last five matches, with Burnley his next opponent. Man Utd have a kind run of fixtures to the end of the season, including a double in Gameweek 37 with home clashes against Newcastle United and Arsenal.
