The midweek Premier League action threw up plenty of interesting results, as Tottenham beat Manchester United and Bournemouth shocked Chelsea.

Top performers included Nathan Ake, Christian Eriksen, Theo Walcott and Sam Clucas, but who should you be eyeing up ahead of the next round of fixtures?

Here are our top tips for fantasy success on the weekend.


Goalkeepers

Who's Hot


Jack Butland - The England stopper has kept two clean sheets since Paul Lambert took over as Stoke manager and could make it three in a row against Bournemouth.

David de Gea - He couldn't do anything about either of Tottenham's strikes on Wednesday but the Spaniard should return to form in the Huddlesfield match.

Who's Not


Heurelho Gomes - The Brazilian missed the goalless draw at Stoke and won't return to Watford's starting XI any time soon.


Rob Elliot - The 31-year-old is popular among fantasy managers but is carrying a knock and hasn't featured in Newcastle's team for the last five league games.

Defenders

Who's Hot


Nathan Ake - The Dutchman grabbed a goal and a clean sheet in Bournemouth's incredible 3-0 win at Bournemouth, making him a marked man for the 25th gameweek.

Alfie Mawson - The former Barnsley man is such a big threat from set-pieces going forward, notching a goal and an assist in his last two games.

Who's Not


Danny Simpson - He was Leicester's first choice right-back during the historic 2015-16 campaign but Simpson has been left out of Claude Puel's starting XI for the last six league games.

Mathias Jorgensen - Huddersfield were solid at the start of the season but have lost their defensive resilience as the campaign has worn on.
