With the Christmas schedule now in full swing, Premier League fixtures continue to come thick and fast.

The highlight this weekend is Friday evening's battle between Arsenal and Liverpool, while Burnley host Tottenham and Manchester United visit Leicester in other high profile matches.

Before Friday's deadline, here's who to look out for and who to shake off for your fantasy team.


Goalkeepers

Who's Hot


Mathew Ryan - The Australian was a star performer in Brighton's goalless draw against Burnley and faces a below average Watford.


Lukasz Fabianski - Fabianski saved a penalty in the 3-1 defeat at Everton and will be confident of making more stops against Crystal Palace.

Who's Not

Defenders

Who's Hot


Marcos Alonso - The Spaniard has carried his goalscoring form from last season into this campaign and has a goal and an assist in his last two games.


Aaron Cresswell - West Ham have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the league and Cresswell is a regular part of David Moyes' team.

Forwards

Who's Hot


Wayne Rooney - The ex-England international has plundered in the goals for Everton recently, netting five times in his last five games.

Manolo Gabbiadini - The Southampton striker hasn't scored since October and isn't a guaranteed starter for the Saints.
