Fantasy Premier League managers have been left with lots of thinking to do and decisions to make after a blockbuster gameweek 2.

Michail Antonio became West Ham's all-time Premier League top goalscorer with his double in their 4-1 win over Leicester while Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku and Manchester City's Jack Grealish opened their accounts at their new clubs.

Here are four players to pick for your FPL team ahead of gameweek 3.


Ruben Dias - £6m - vs Arsenal

Dias has been a mainstay in Pep Guardiola's ever-changing defensive setup, and looks set to lead the backline against the Gunners this weekend. The fixture doesn’t bode well for the Gunners who possess a woeful record against the Citizens: Arsenal failed to score in either the home or away fixture last season. They have also failed to score a goal in the opening two Premier League games this season.


Bruno Fernandes - £12m - vs Wolves

After his stunning hat-trick in gameweek 1, Bruno failed to get on the scoresheet in the 1-1 draw against Southampton. United travel to Wolves this weekend, and Fernandes will be expected to contribute with a goal or two to help his team get the three points at the Molineux.


Heung-min Son - £10m - vs Watford

Tottenham play Watford at home this weekend, and Nuno Espirito Santo will be expecting nothing less than three points from his side. Spurs have been able to create a chance every nine minutes this season so far – the 6th highest in the league, and despite Harry Kane's return to the squad, Son will be expected to play an important role for the Lilywhites.


Michail Antonio - £7.7m - vs Crystal Palace

Antonio is the Premier League’s top scorer with three goals and has the most points in FPL (29) until now. He's priced moderately compared to the other forwards and offers value for money, and could even be an option for the captain armband, if you're willing to take a gamble. Crystal Palace are yet to pick up a win or score a goal under Patrick Vieira in the league.
