Games are coming thick and fast with the Premier League sandwiched between Champions League and Europa League fixtures during the midweek. The weekend's big game sees Tottenham host Manchester United.

Spurs put six past Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side the last time these two sides met, but a lot has changed since. Jose Mourinho's men dropped out of the title race, are struggling to break into the top four, while United sit comfortable in second place.

A huge match involving teams in the race for a top-four finish sees West Ham take on Leicester City; the Hammers have the second-best league home record, while the Foxes are the second-best away team this season.

Here are 4 players to pick for your FPL team this weekend.

Danny Ings - £8.4m - West Brom (A)

Danny Ings picked up 11 points in gameweek 30, and can produce the same returns against a defensively weak West Brom side. Ings has produced 22 shots on target despite being limited to just 21 starts this season due to various injuries. He is a key player for Southampton and has been involved in a team-leading 46 percent of their goals this season.

Mohamed Salah - £12.4m - Aston Villa (H)

As the race for the Golden Boot heats up, Mo Salah seems to have rediscovered his form, too. He has now scored four goals in his last three matches for club and country, and was last on the scoresheet for the Reds in their 3-0 win over Arsenal. Salah now has 18 goals this season, just one behind Spurs talisman, Harry Kane (19). Salah thrived in his previous meeting with Dean Smith’s side, scoring twice and earning 13 points in Gameweek 4.

Jesse Lingard - £6.3m - Leicester (H)

As the race for top-four heats up, Jesse Lingard has proven to be a vital cog in David Moyes' side. The midfielder has scored six goals and supplied four assists in eight appearances since arriving on loan from Manchester United in January. Lingard will look to take advantage of a Leicester side who have struggled on the road of late, despite being the second-best side away, managing only two clean sheets in their last eight away matches.

Bruno Fernandes - £11.6m - Tottenham (A)

Bruno Fernandes has been the most explosive player in FPL this season, with 11 double-figure hauls until now. The United playmaker is among the key captaincy picks for the Red Devils’ crunch match at Tottenham. The Portuguese has one goal, an assist, and 21 points across his last four games. His 14 key passes in that period are more than any other player in FPL.
