Gabriel Martinelli can maintain his excellent form at Bournemouth’s expense on Saturday after capitalising on Everton’s defensive frailties.
Martinelli scored twice as the Gunners thrashed the sorry Toffees on Wednesday to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League – and hopefully earned you a healthy haul of fantasy points.
If the Brazil winger is not in your team, then it’ll perhaps be better late than never, with struggling Bournemouth travelling to Emirates Stadium on the back of a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City.
Danny Ings can make his mark in West Ham’s trip to Brighton and Hove Albion, while Harry Kane and Antonee Robinson can also rack up the points.
Using Opta data, Stats Perform highlights why that quartet deserve to get the nod.
Antonee Robinson (Brentford v Fulham)
Fulham have exceeded expectations so far this season and left-back Robinson has played a big part.
No defender has had more top-flight clean sheets (5) since the World Cup than the United States international, who was also in the Fulham side that shut out Leeds in a 2-0 FA Cup victory on Tuesday.
Robinson provided an assist in the draw at Wolves last week, and only four defenders have created more chances from open play than his eight in the Premier League since the World Cup ended.
Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal v Bournemouth)
A brace for Martinelli on Wednesday took his Premier League goal tally for the season to 11 – as many as he had scored in his previous three campaigns combined.
Unfortunate with injuries early in his career, Martinelli is putting those woes behind him and has found the back of the net in three consecutive games.
He has scored six top-flight goals since the World Cup and should cause the Cherries all sorts of problems.
Danny Ings (Brighton and Hove Albion v West Ham)
Ings opened his Hammers account in a 4-0 rout of Nottingham Forest last Saturday, scoring a double.
The striker can build on that when David Moyes’ men head to the south coast to face Brighton, who Ings has also scored twice against this season during his time at Aston Villa.
Ings clearly enjoys facing the Seagulls, as he has netted five times against them and he can get on a roll to help the Hammers climb the table.

Harry Kane (Wolves v Tottenham)
It may be that Kane is a mainstay in your side, but if not then you can reap the rewards of investing in the Tottenham striker this weekend.
Kane came on as a second-half substitute in Spurs’ shock 1-0 FA Cup loss at Sheffield United on Wednesday and the London club should be fired up after seeing another opportunity to end their trophy drought pass them by.
England captain Kane scored his 18th Premier League goal of the season in a derby win over Chelsea last Sunday and you should back him to put on a show at Molineux.
