Two of the best players in the country go head-to-head on Sunday when Alexis Sanchez squares off against Romelu Lukaku.

Arsenal are still in a top four hunt while Everton will finish seventh regardless of the result, but the two strikers still have the motivation of a possible golden boot, although remarkable performances would be required for either to overhaul Harry Kane after his antics at Leicester on Thursday.

Both have had great seasons but which of the two forwards should you back for success in your ​​Yahoo Daily Fantasy team?


The only reason Arsenal are still in with a shot of securing Champions League football next season is Alexis Sanchez's form.

The Chilean has an average of 13 fantasy points per game but has recorded hauls of 21.4 and 27.8 against Stoke and Sunderland respectively, scoring three goals and adding an assist in those games.

Lukaku, on the other hand, has dropped off rather dramatically in recent weeks. Having looked set to win his first ever golden boot, the Belgium international is now without a goal in four games with the Toffees managing just one win in those matches.

You've got to back Arsenal's talisman when it comes to form.


Neither side have been particularly impressive at the back, which is disappointing given that they both boast a number of quality defenders.

Everton have leaked 41 Premier League goals and have been vulnerable against the best teams, conceding 20 against the top six in the division.

Arsenal could be without star defender Laurent Koscielny due to a calf injury so Gabriel Paulista might be drafted in, but they have still kept three clean sheets in their last four matches.

There has been criticism levelled at Lukaku in regards to his supposed inability to produce against the top sides, whereas Sanchez doesn't seem to have this problem.


There's a gap of four quid between the two strikers in terms of price.

Sanchez comes in at £28, the joint most expensive player for the weekend alongside Harry Kane, while Lukaku can save you a few pounds, costing £24.

With Arsenal expected to dominate Everton in their pursuit of Liverpool and the top four, it seems the wiser choice to select Sanchez ahead of Lukaku, given his recent form and Lukaku's lack of goals recently, even if his signing does set you back in your budget.
