Fantasy Premier League action continues this weekend with some big fixtures on the horizon. Manchester City vs Fulham has the most points potential this weekend but don’t overlook the north London derby or the perfect storm that's brewing at Bramall Lane.

No matter who you pick, it's difficult to not fall victim to the dreaded “Pep roulette”. Putting all your eggs in Pep’s basket is a risky business given his propensity to rotate, but an easy fixture against Fulham does have some potential.

Here are 5 players you should pick for Gameweek 11.

Alex McCarthy - £4.6m - Brighton (A)

McCarthy may have conceded three against Manchester United last time out, but he is still one of the top goalkeeping assets in FPL this season. With four clean sheets this term, only Chelsea stopper Edouard Mendy has kept more. The Saints go to Brighton this weekend and McCarthy will be hoping to build another run of clean sheets.

Reece James - £5.1m - Leeds (H)

The right-back offers a cut-price route into Chelsea’s improved defence for their home encounter with Leeds United. Starting the last five consecutive games, James has looked a constant threat down the right flank and has been unlucky to not have more than one assist this season.

Diogo Jota - £6.8m - Wolves (H)

It is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook Diogo Jota, who was on the scoresheet again at the weekend during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Brighton. He now has nine goals in 14 games for the Reds, while he has registered attacking returns in four of his last five Premier League games.

Riyad Mahrez - £8.3m - Fulham (H)

Mahrez had a terrific game at the weekend and is second only to Jota among the most-signed players this week. He has thrived at home this season, scoring four goals and supplying an assist in his three outings. The Manchester City winger scored a hat-trick at home against Burnley last weekend and will be raring to go again.

Harry Kane - £10.9m - Arsenal (H)

Swimming against the tide a little with this pick, but Harry Kane loves the north London derby. He has scored 10 times against Arsenal in total and if he is on the scoresheet again on Sunday he will become the top-scoring player in the history of the fixture.
