Sky Sports Fantasy Football Managers should cast their eyes on Manchester United and Tottenham this weekend with the two sides heavily odds-on to claim home wins on Saturday.
United host Crystal Palace in Saturday's early kick-off and Sky Bet make them 10/11 to win to nil, meaning there should be points up for grabs in defence and attack where David Moyes' men are concerned.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are 11/8 to win to nil but the visit of Norwich represents their first chance to gel their new-look attacking midfield together at White Hart Lane, with Erik Lamela (£7.5m) and Christian Eriksen (£7.0m) each a short price at 2/1 to score at any time.
As for United's midfield, their new recruit Marouane Fellaini has already picked up more points as an Everton player than any of his new team-mates have managed in red, so is worth considering slotting into your side at £8.3m, with Sky Bet going 5/2 that he scores on his debut.
With one man of the match award from his three starts, Nemanja Vidic is United's top-scoring defender and is available for £7.4m, though his partner Rio Ferdinand is £0.3 cheaper if you can't afford the Serbian.
Robin van Persie remains far and away the game's most picked player, so it's best to stick with United's main man - or draft him in if you haven't already - as another brace for him is a 13/5 shout so there's a good chance those without the Dutchman will lose ground this weekend.
Southampton are the only other home team to be odds-on for a win this weekend, as Manchester City and Arsenal face difficult trips to Stoke and Sunderland respectively, with Pablo Osvaldo well priced at £7.8m, some £0.9m cheaper than Rickie Lambert.
Meanwhile, both Everton and Chelsea are odds-on to score against each other in Saturday's late kick-off, so it may be worth omitting any defensive representatives from either side.
Sunderland are expected to remain without a win as they welcome Arsenal to the Stadium of Light, and all eyes will be on Mesut Ozil, who is expected to go straight into Arsene Wenger's side.
The German assist-specialist is available in Sky Sports Fantasy Football for £8.8m, which is £0.2m cheaper than Chelsea's Juan Mata, who is no longer a guaranteed starter for the Blues - swap him for Ozil if you've forked out on the Spaniard.
